LD Entertainment books ‘Hush, Hush Saga’

Patrick Sean Smith to adapt bestselling young adult series for film

LD Entertainment (“The Grey”) has optioned film rights to the four novels that comprise Becca Fitzpatrick’s bestselling young adult series “The Hush, Hush Saga.”

“Greek” creator Patrick Sean Smith will adapt the screenplay, with production expected to begin next fall.

“Hush, Hush” centers on 16-year-old Nora Grey, whose life quickly changes when she meets Patch, a mysterious new bad boy in school. Her instincts tell her to stay away from him, but Nora can’t help being drawn to his undeniable charm. As they get closer, Nora finds herself in dangerous situations and begins to realize that Patch is actually a fallen angel with harmful intentions.

First published in 2010 by Simon & Schuster, “Hush, Hush” was on the New York Times bestseller list for 36 weeks and has been sold in more than 35 countries, with more than 2 million copies in print in the U.S. Fitzpatrick wrote three additional novels, with the final installment of the series, “Finale,” hitting shelves Oct. 23.

“Fans of the book have been clamoring for a movie since ‘Hush, Hush’ debuted, and I’m thrilled to let them know that the film rights have sold to LD Entertainment. It’s exciting to think that Patch and Nora’s story will be brought to life on the bigscreen,” Fitzpatrick said.

LD Entertainment currently has horror sequel “The Collection” in theaters, and its upcoming releases include “Disconnect” and “Black Rock.”
