Production of the young adult smash hit ‘Hush, Hush’ is moving forward as the two leading actors have been cast for the film! Each installment of Becca Fitzpatrick’s four-book supernatural romance has been a smash hit and have debuted on the New York Times Bestseller list with the first installment staying for on for 50 weeks. Now, Liana Liberato (‘If I Stay,’ ‘Trust’) and Wolfgang Novogratz (‘Assassination Nation,”9 by Design’) have landed the two leading parts of Nora Grey and Patch Cipriano respectively.
Kellie Cyrus is set to direct the movie based on an adaptation of the first novel which has been penned by Peter Hutchings. With over five million copies of the first novel already sold, the film potentially comes in with a decent sized built-in fanbase that could grow into a four-plus film cinematic outing.
For those unfamiliar with the novel, there is the synopsis:
Nora finds forbidden love with her fallen angel, in the first in the New York Times bestselling Hush, Hush saga.
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.
Not quite the action helmer or dystopian future which has marked YA adaptations in recent years, but this supernatural romance could be what fans of the intended audience have been hoping for at the box office.
