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.
