LD Entertainment Options Hush Hush

230px-Hush,hushFans of the Hush Hush Saga are getting their wish: LD Entertainment optioned the film rights to this the hit Young Adult novels. Currently, Greek creator Patrick Sean Smith has been hired to write the screen play for the first installment Hush Hush.

The Hush Hush saga by Becca Fitzpatrick is comprised of four books (Hush Hush, Crescendo, Silence, and Finale) and is centered on 16 year old Nora Gray. When she falls for the mysterious Patch, she gets more than she bargained for! Patch happens to be a fallen angel who is in the midst of a war between Fallen Angels and the Nephilim (beings that can take over a fallen angel’s body). Can Nora and Patch’s love survive this heavenly battle?

Fitzpatrick confessed to Entertainment Weekly that she is concerned about the casting. She had imagined certain actors when she wrote the novels but those actors would now be too old to play them. Some fans hope the company does like Twilight and find unknowns who become the characters instead of hiring A-list celebrities for hype.

Production on the film is expected to start in Fall 2013.
