Media Rights nabs ‘Trylle’

Shingle plans two pics from supernatural trilogy

Media Rights Capital has bought feature rights to Amanda Hocking’s self-published “Trylle” trilogy and plans to develop the supernatural tale into two films.

“District 9” scribe Terri Tatchell is writing the scripts and will also produce.

Hocking had announced on Feb. 16 that Tatchell had been signed to write the adapation for the trilogy — “Switched,” “Torn” and “Ascend.”

“Switch” centers on a teenage girl who discovers that she may not be human and finds herself in a world she never knew existed — a world both beautiful and frightening in which she’s unsure she wants to be a part of it.

Minnesota-based Hocking has also written and self-published vampire romance series “My Blood Approves” and zombie novel “Hollowland.” She signed a publishing deal Friday with St. Martin’s Press for her upcoming four-book “Watersong” series which she describes as a young adult paranormal romance story with “Wake” as the first title.

Media Rights Capital signed a deal a year ago with Universal to distribute 20 MRC pics over five years beginning this year. MRC and Uni first joined forces on “Bruno” and “The Adjustment Bureau.”

Netflix and MRC announced March 17 that they have reached a deal that will bring at least 26 episodes of drama series “House of Cards” to the online streaming service. The remake of the BBC miniseries will star Kevin Spacey; one of its exec producers is David Fincher.
