Ann Aguirre’s ‘Razorland’ Trilogy Optioned by Kickstart Productions

Kickstart Productions has optioned the rights to Ann Aguirre’s “Razorland” trilogy and is starting to develop first book in the series, “Enclave,” for film and TV.

Enclave” is about a girl from an underground enclave in which no one lives past the age of 25. She is exiled out of darkness to the uninhabitable surface in punishment for a crime she did not commit.

Aguirre is a New York Times and USA bestselling author of over 30 novels for adults and teens. “Enclave” won the RITA for best young adult novel in 2012 and was selected as a YALSA quick pick for reluctant readers. The “Razorland” series has been translated into ten languages, and was also a Publishers Weekly bestseller.

Kickstart is a Los Angeles-based production company started in 1999 by Jason Netter. Credits include the film “Wanted” and the television series “Painkiller Jane.” Most recently, it produced “A Country Called Home,” which starred Mackenzie Davis and Imogen Poots and opened at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival, and “Sweetwater,” which starred January Jones, Ed Harris and Jason Isaacs and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2014.

Upcoming Kickstart projects include the TV series “Preacher” at AMC and “Ready, Jet, Go!” an animated series for PBS and Bottersnikes and Gumbles for Netflix.

Deal was brokered by Amy Schiffman of Intellectual Property Group on behalf of Laura Bradford at Bradford Literary Agency.
