“House Of Night” Set To Leap From Page To Screen! Again!

If you know anyone in the above photo – boy are they about to be excited! Hopefully they won’t be let down again!

No, I don’t mean that House Of Night will be made again. I just mean a similar announcement was made just under two years ago and nothing happened.

Producers Michael Birnbaum and Jeremiah Chechik apparently let the rights to the project lapse and it has now been picked up by Davis Films (Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Good Night And Good Luck, and The Rules Of Attraction).

It turns out this series of books is pretty darn popular, “The ninth book in the series, Destined, was just published on October 25. The series, from the mother-daughter writing team, has sold over 12 million copies in the United States, keeping it on The New York Times bestseller list for a record 140 weeks. The books have consistently debuted at #1 in the United States, Canada, UK, and Australia, and have been published in 39 countries around the globe.

The books chronicle the coming of age of 16-year-old Zoey Redbird, who learns she is genetically marked to either become a “vampyre” in adolescence, or be killed in the process. She leaves her family for the House of Night, a special boarding school for such “fledglings” to receive the training necessary to survive as an adult vampyre. At the House of Night, Zoey soon comes to experience a complex world where dark is not always evil, and light is not always good.
