Patrick Ness' The Knife of Never Letting Go became an instant classic — and apparently it's still in development at Lionsgate as a film, with Charlie Kaufman writing the script. And now, he's got a new novel out, in which a boy dies in America and wakes up in England.
With the Hunger Games premiere date just around the corner, Lionsgate is already searching for the next big teen blockbuster. And they've chosen Patrick Ness' Chaos Walking trilogy. But will this dystopian society rival the blood splattered world of Katniss and friends?
There's an absolutely fantastic profile of Patrick Ness, author of The Knife Of Never Letting Go, over at Publishers Weekly. Find out how he sold Knife based on just a 40-page excerpt, and how he's finishing another author's book.
