The Vampire Academy series of books are written by author Richelle Mead, and checking out the synopsis of the first book, sounds to me like a cross between a darker Harry Potter with a bit of Twilight thrown in, but for more mature audiences or, put another way, this hopefully won’t be as sulky as Twilight and may actually have some bite in it!

Mean Girls director Mark Waters is directing the adaptation of the first book, and the film title has been changed from The Vampire Academy: Book One to The Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters, suggesting a proposed series of the popular books.

Daniel Waters (Heathers, Batman Returns) is adapting the script, and now the film has scored its two female leads: Zoey Deutch (Beautiful Creatures) and Lucy Fry (Lightning Point) will play lead characters Rose and Lissa, and Russian actor Danila Kozlovski will play the role of Dimitri.

Deadline reports that the Waters brothers are part of the creative team behind Vampire Academy along with producers Michael Preger, Don Murphy, Susan Montford andDeepak Nayer; IM Global’s Stuart Ford is executive producer.

Here is the synopsis for the first book courtesy of Amazon:

St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .

Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
