Director will write YA trilogy for Little, Brown
Weitz’s debut YA title will be “The Young World,” the first of three in a post-apocalyptic series that will launch in spring 2014.
YA fare reps familiar territory for Weitz, who directed “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.” He most recently helmed the Academy Award-nominated “A Better Life.”
Little, Brown Books is a division of New York-based publisher Hachette Book Group.
Deal for print, electronic and audio formats was sealed by fiction editorial director Alvina Ling with Suzanne Gluck of WME.
