'Personal Demons' YA Trilogy Optioned by Ineffable Pictures (Exclusive)
Continuing with the growing trend of bringing YA franchises to the big screen, Ineffable Pictures has optioned the rights to Lisa Desrochers' Personal Demons.
The three-book series consists of Personal Demons, Original Sin and Last Rite, and centers on a teen girl with a special ability. She is caught in the midst of a love triangle between an angel and a demon, each of whom are competing to “tag” her soul for heaven and hell, respectively.
“I’m thrilled that Raphael Kryszek [Ineffable CEO], Jesse Israel and the Ineffable Pictures team share my love of this trilogy and its characters,” said Desrochers in a statement.
The publishing rights for Personal Demons have been sold in more than a dozen territories and was originally acquired for the U.S. in an auction by Macmillan Publishers’ Tor Books, which publishes science fiction and fantasy titles.
John Travis, who wrote The Haunting of Molly Hartley and The New Daughter, is adapting the Personal Demons series for television
Also currently in the works at Ineffable is a film adaptation of Colleen Houck’s Tiger’s Curse, in development at Paramount Pictures.
