We've been excited about the big-screen adaptation of Richelle Mead's fabulous and fun Vampire Academy series, about a half-vampire teen training to be a bodyguard for her noble vamp best friend, ever since Don Murphy and Michael Preger announced they would be producing the films, but we worried the movies might dumb down Mead's sharp-edged world. It turns out, though, that the movie is in the hands of two fellows who have seen the dark side of high school. Mean Girls director Mark Waters will be sitting in the director's chair, and his brother, Heathers screenwriter Daniel Waters, is writing the script.
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
