'Vampire Diaries' EP Julie Plec to write 'Tiger's Curse' screenplay
Like the current pop culture phenomenon "50 Shades of Grey," the book was first available as an E-book before word spread -- and now it's been translated into 15 languages, been on the New York Times bestseller list, and is set to become a five-book series.
This is Plec's first shot at writing a feature (outside of the spec realm), though she's no stranger to adapting YA books, of course, as "The Vampire Diaries" began life as a series of novels. There's a supernatural element to "The Tiger's Curse" as well. It tells the story of a teenage girl hired to take care of a tiger... who turns out to be a cursed Indian prince who turns into a man for a half an hour every day.
The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
