Davis Films Enter The "House of Night"

Further to our report regarding the Dark Horse Comics' graphic novel series "House Of Night", comes a new report from Samuel Hadida announcing that his company, Davis Films ("Resident Evil"), has acquired film rights from authors P.C. and Kristin Cast to the "House of Night" young adult fiction book series.

The ninth book in the series, "Destined" was just released October 25, 2011. The series, from the mother-daughter writing team, has sold over 12 million copies in the US, keeping it on The New York Times bestseller list for a record 140 weeks.

The books have consistently debuted at #1 in the United States, Canada, UK, and Australia, and have been published in 39 countries around the globe.

The books chronicle the coming of age of 16-year-old 'Zoey Redbird', who learns she is genetically marked to either become a "vampyre" in adolescence, or be killed in the process.

She leaves her family for the 'House of Night', a special boarding school for such "fledglings" to receive the training necessary to survive as an adult vampyre. At the House of Night, Zoey soon comes to experience a complex world where dark is not always evil, and light is not always good.

"We are thrilled to bring P.C. and Kristin's stunning series of books to worldwide film audiences," said Hadida. "'House of Night' connects on a profound level -- what growing up means today."
