Nick Pustay has been tapped to adapt Firelight, Mandalay’s adaptation of the Sophie Jordan young-adult fantasy novel. The book was published by Harper Teen in September, with Mandalay picking up the rights pre-emptively just weeks after. The “Twilight with dragons” story centers on Jacinda, a young girl who is a “draki,” a descendant of dragons who can morph into human form, and who is ordained to marry another of her kind. When the girl’s mother moves the family to live among humans for safety reasons, Jacinda puts her family at risk when she falls for a member of a secret dragon-hunting society. For Unique Features, Pustay is writing the adaptation of “Shiver,” the story of a teenage boy who becomes a wolf each winter, and his girlfriend.
