Preger Entertainment has acquired the film rights for the Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead. To read the complete article click here. The article also states that Penguin/Razorbill has ordered a new spin off series of The Vampire Academy set to begin in 2011.
I am really excited by this news and I hope Preger Entertainment moves forward with this project soon. The Vampire Academy is one of my favorite YA series and I think it could be adapted well into a film (mmmm Dimitri in the flesh). While The Vampire Diaries T.V series was well received by fans I am not a fan of the books and felt that of all the YA vamp genre books out there the series by L.J. Smith would not have been my first pic. Of all the many YA paranormal books available which one do you think would be best suited to make the leap to film or TV? Are you interested in seeing a movie based on The Vampire Academy?
