Earlier this month we reported that Paramount was all set to acquire the rights to Daughter Of Smoke and Bone, the Laini Taylor novel that was published late September by Little, Brown Books For Young Readers.
Now it appears they’ve been outbid by another major studio.
Per Variety, “Universal Pictures has acquired the worldwide rights to Laini Taylor’s popular young-adult tome “Daughter of Smoke and Bone.””
In the book, ““The protagonist is a 17-year old art student who is sent by her awful father on travels across the globe to collect teeth for an unspecified but creepy purpose. This leads her to an encounter with an angel and revelations about her family that lead her into adventures involving otherworldly beings.”
