Breaking News!

Well breaking news to me anyway.  I try to keep up with everything happening with books and their movie rights.  While reading on, I came across some interesting news.  Firelight by Sophie Jordan is becoming a movie! 
A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.

Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.

Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.

Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide. --Goodreads
I haven't read this book yet, but I'm definitely going to have to.  It sounds fantastic!  There are no official casting news, but Mandalay Pictures have gotten the rights to FirelightMandalay Pictures have done films such as I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, Sleepy Hollow, and Never Back Down.  It's going to be interesting to see what they do with the book.  As always, I will keep you posted.

How do you feel with Mandalay Pictures with the rights to Firelight?  Have you read Firelight?  Do you think it will be a good movie?
