"Lovely" is based on the first of a series of best-selling Harper Collins novels by Melissa Marr.

Mary Harron, who got on the directing map with American Psycho, is in negotiations to direct Wicked Lovely, Universal’s teen fantasy project being produced by Vince Vaughn's Wild West Picture Show Productions.

"Lovely" is based on the first of a series of best-selling Harper Collins novels by Melissa Marr.

The first book centers on a teenage girl who can see the hidden faery world but confronts danger when not only do the faeries discover her ability, but also when one king decides she must be his bride.

Caroline Thompson, whose credits include a slew of Tim Burton movies among them Edward Scissorhands and Corpse Bride, wrote the script.

Vaughn is producing with Valeri Vaughn and Peter Billingsley.

Kimberly Pierce was previously attached to direct.
