Could Vampire Academy Become the Next Hunger Games Movie Superfranchise?

Could the Vampire Academy series become the next book-to-film successor to Twilight and The Hunger Games? Charlie Jane Anders (io9.com) and New Orleans fans thinks so. There have been official talks for a movie franchise since 2010.

The Detroit Free Press recently interviewed Richelle Mead, author of the crazy popular Vampire Academy series, and the Michigan native talked about the books and the movie adaptation that is in the works. Mead sold the movie rights to Vampire Academy about a month ago to Preger Entertainment. Michael Preger is producing the movie, along with Don Murphy, whose credits include Transformers and Real Steel. They want to create a film franchise that will appeal to both male and female fans. Preger told the Free Press, “We’re not just going for a movie, we’re hoping for a series of films.

As a huge Vampire Academy/Bloodlines fan, I hope this book series can successfully hit the big screen! Richelle Mead is an awesome writer, and audiences of all ages would enjoy the story. Spread the word!
