In today’s “Say Whaaaaat?” news segment, we bring you word that the director of American Psycho, Mary Harron, is in talks to direct an adaptation of the teen fantasy series Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. To add more head scratching to the confusion fire, Vince Vaughn will be producing. Also, Caroline Thompson (who wrote a lot of Tim Burton's stuff like Edward Scissorhands) will pen the script.
I’m fairly excited about this project. There’s some really good talent working on it and the premise doesn’t sound totally horrible. It follows a girl who discovers that she can see into the faery world, but things get complicated when the faeries, in turn, discover her and their king wants her as his bride. This is a teen fantasy series after all, we shouldn’t expect Proust or anything.
