Variety reports that:
Amber Entertainment has signed a partnership with prolific paranormal novelist Sherrilyn Kenyon to develop and produce films, television and webisodes based on her books.
First project to be developed is “Chronicles of Nick,” based on the young adult series. In the first book, “Infinity,” 14-year-old Nick Gautier discovers that the football team has been turned into zombies, sets out to stop the attacks and learns he has a key role in an unseen world.
Kenyon will serve as producer alongside Ileen Maisel, founding partner of Amber.
“As a longtime fan of the films that both Ileen Maisel and Mark Ordesky have produced, I couldn’t be more excited,” Kenyon said. “I look forward to working with them to make my characters flesh-and-blood people.”
Kenyon has penned more than 60 novels. Her “Dark-Hunter” vampire series has sold more than 22 million copies and been adapted into a manga published by St. Martins, while her Lords of Avalon novels have been adapted by Marvel comics.
Chronicles of Nick, not only is Nick Gaultier a very interesting character but if the screen adaptation will be anything like the books then it will be beyond entertaining. I can already see droves of teenagers screaming and giggling for Nick Gaultier and his fellow Dark-Hunters.
