Mary Harron best known for American Psycho, has just wrapped shooting The Moth Diaries, an adaptation of a young adult novel about vampires at a girl’s boarding school, and now Deadline reports that she’s been hired by Universal to direct Wicked Lovely, an adaptation of the book series by Melissa Marr.
The final book in the series having been published in February, and it seems Universal is eager to go ahead and get the movie at least shot.
The story revolves around a teenage girl who has been able to see the magical “faery” creatures her entire life but pretended she couldn’t, and who is suddenly commanded by the Faery King to become his queen.
Now that the Twilight series is almost done, it is time to have another female fantasy movie. At least this time we won’t have vampires.
