Fox 2000 Acquires Witch Novel ‘Half Bad’ for Film Adaptation

Witch imageWitches are another hot property in Hollywood as of late, we’ve learned that Fox 2000 has acquired the rights to Sally Green’s witch novel, Half Bad.   The planned supernatural thriller will be a contemporary take on a world inhabited by covert witches, some good, some evil.

Deadline is reporting, Fox 2000 has acquired film rights to Sally Green’s debut book Half Bad, a contemporary supernatural thriller. The film will be produced by Karen Rosenfelt, whose recent films include Twilight Saga, Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters, and The Book Thief.

Half Bad starts a trilogy taking place in a world inhabited by covert witches; one faction is good and the other evil. They are divided by hatred and united by one thing only — fear of a boy descended from both sides.

We’ll be following this one as more news will be forthcoming.  At least it’s not a remake or sequel right?  As long as it’s an original story, there’s hope for it.
