Amanda Hocking sells Trylle Trilogy film rights

Let’s add another YA series to the list of potential successors to the Twilight throne: EW has confirmed a New York Times report that Amanda Hocking, the 26-year-old self-publishing phenom behind the Trylle Trilogy (which includes Switched, Torn and Ascend and chronicles heroine high schooler Wendy Everly’s entry into a paranormal world populated by beautiful trolls), has sold the film rights to the production company Media Rights Capital. Terri Tatchell, co-writer of District 9 (and married to its director, Neill Blomkamp), is reportedly already at work on adapting two out of the three novels for films and will serve as producer.

    Beautiful Trolls? This sounds like an SNL skit. Anyone remember “Firelight” with its beautiful Frankenstines?

  • jen

    just started reading this series. im on the second book now. loving the books think it would make a great movie.

    • Addison

      Somebody said they would take the first third of the 2nd book and put it in the middle of the first to make a “sensational” movie.

  • googie

    All I can think of is how much I love District 9! Sorry!

  • Tweety

    haha beautiful trolls…

  • Steph

    it sounds weird, but the first book is VERY addicting! more than halfway done with it now.

    • misha

      Agree they are addicting and fun easy reads. They aren’t Shakespeare and don’t claim to be.

  • Humbo

    Addicting series…but not that good. Filled with cliches and bad dialogue. Hmmm, just like “Twilight,” so the movie is bound is be dreadful.

      You beat me to it, sory I tried-not for me

    • Beth

      okay, so if u hate it so much, then why were u looking up if it was coming out in a movie? seriously, if u got nothing nice to say, then dont say anything. i wanna see u try to be a top selling author

  • miss k

    Beautiful trolls?? Was that sarcasm?

  • jj6

    Why must they keep glorifying these poorly written books with all the same tired cliches. Would somebody please buy the rights to Tamora Pierce’s books. I would love to see some of her Tortall books made into movies.

  • Giselle

    Read all 3 books in 2 days and loved them. Its a very beautiful story. Can’t wait til the movie comes out..this is great news!!

    • Skygirl

      Wow u must be a fast reader it took me two and a hafe weeks to read all three of thim loved the books can’t wait to see the movies

  • b

    Beautiful trolls? Isn’t that an oxymoron?

    • Beth

      no cuz see everyone in the town forening are trolls….or well most people….but they look like regular people but with more beauty than most normal people.

  • Krystal

    I loved the first two books but that third book felt sooo rushed and had many edit issuses but I am excited to see the movies.

    • duck

      i agree plus it could have longer but i didn’t mind cuz (spoiler) i liked the romance bits with wendy and loki

  • Waverly

    I read the first book Switched and it was so awful that I would never pick up the rest of the series, and I’m a great one for reading trilogies. The dialogue was painful and the entire book was a giant cliche. Glad I only paid 99 cents for my Kindle version.

    • Beth

      dude its a fantasy. calm down

      • duck

        really? i admit the first bit was a bit odd, i liked though, oh well everyones got an opinion

  • Allison

    I personally loved everything that has come from Amanda Hocking. Alot has to do with personal taste and about what you like to read. I am a stay at home mother and I love paranormal anything along with YA and Adult novels. It’s something that hasn’t been done before. How many vampire and werewolf movies and books can there be with being overdone? I love her work and I am certain the movies will be a hit!

  • Shannon

    Loved the first two books, third book horrible ending (i think finn diserves her not stupid loki) but i can’t wait for the movie to see what they look like. hopefully Finn is the same person <3 him!

  • Ria

    Loved these books! But I do agree with Shannon, wish she ended up with Finn. The beautiful trolls is a great relief from all of the vamp/werewolf/fairy books.

    • Beth

      i agree completely with Shannon and ria. i love Finn! <3
