Alcon in talks to buy ‘Icons’ novel

'Beautiful Creatures' author Margaret Stohl penned sci-fi fantasy

Alcon Entertainment is in talks to acquire hot YA novelIcons: The Book of Sorrow,” a move that would re-team the production company with “Beautiful Creatures” author Margaret Stohl.

“Sorrow” is the debut novel in a planned four or five-book series. Tome begins in the future after an alien race has decimated Earth. The aliens turn buildings into deadly icons, capable of shutting down all forms of energy and reducing living things to dust in seconds. The only hope lies in four children born immune to the power.

Alcon acquired rights to “Beautiful Creatures,” the first novel in Kami Garcia and Stohl’s supernatural series, earlier this year. That pic co-stars Viola Davis, Emma Thompson and Emmy Rossum.

CAA is shopping “Sorrow,” while the Gernet Company reps Stohl.
