Palomar Pictures is adapting the book series "Blood of Eden" by Julie Kagawa, according to Deadline.
Published this month by Harlequin Teen, the series kicks off with the young-adult novel "The Immortal Rules."
The tale follows a young vampire girl who struggles between accepting her nature and taking down her vampire superiors in a world where humanity -- after a deadly virus strikes -- serves as slaves and food.
“It’s simply a great story with an electrifying heroine,” said Joni Sighvatsson, principal at Palomar Pictures. “It makes the series an ideal subject for a film adaptation.
"Julie’s ability to familiarize the reader with this complex world in a few pages demonstrates the cinematic qualities of her imagination and complements my own sensibilities as a film producer.”
Kagawa is a New York Times bestselling author, who also pens the "The Iron Fey" series, which is about a half-human teenage girl caught in a clash among the Faery realms.
Sighvatsson has produced such films as "Candyman," "Killer Elite," "Kalifornia" and "Arlington Road."
