It must be wonderful being a novelist whose main audience is teenagers, especially the young women who fall into that age group. With the sudden craze of the supernatural love story seeping through “Twilight,” every other novel that falls some-what into that category is up for grabs by practically all production companies and studios.
That’s why it’s no surprise whatsoever that Lauren Oliver’s novel “Delirium” is getting the big-screen treatment from Fox 2000 Pictures. The book development company Paper Lantern Lit whipped up a deal with Fox 2000 that made it possible for them to start up development on the feature-length version of “Delirium.”
Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love – the deliria – blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.
Mitch Kaplan and Paula Mazur are set to produce “Delirium,” but no word on who will pen the adaptation.
