Could this popular book series be the next big thing in YA movie adaptations?

The Hush, Hush Saga will not be silenced. The fourth and final installment of Becca Fitzpatrick‘s phenomenally popular YA series hit shelves in October, but fans of Nora and Patch have a new reason to celebrate: EW has learned exclusively that the saga, which centers on a 16-year-old girl and the fallen angel who pursues her, is being turned into a film. Greek creator Patrick Sean Smith is adapting the first book for LD Entertainment (The Collection), with production on the movie set to begin in fall 2013. ”I’m so excited,” Fitzpatrick says. ”LD does a lot of horror movies, and I’m really hoping to see that with my book — a very suspenseful, thrilling story. In the beginning, Patch is not a good guy, so it will be interesting to see how they handle that.” But she’s not worried — Smith is her dream choice to write the screenplay. ”I like that he’s done so many shows that have a teen audience,” she says. ”I feel like he’ll really be able to nail the script.” So is Hush, Hush the next Twilight? Bite your tongue, says Fitzpatrick. ”Nobody wants to be ‘the next’ something. Twilight‘s huge, and that’s something to aspire to, but I’m hoping LD will make Hush, Hush unique.”
