Fever Series Coming to the Big Screen?

DreamWorks bags 'Darkfever' franchise

Previously set up at 20th Century Fox under New Regency banner

With "Harry Potter" finished, "The Twilight Saga" coming to a close and "The Hunger Games" getting steady buzz, DreamWorks is looking to launch its own fantasy franchise, as the studio has acquired feature film rights to all five books in Karen Marie Moning's bestselling "Darkfever" series.
Project was previously set up at 20th Century Fox under its New Regency banner.
Series follows MacKayla Lane, an ordinary young woman from Georgia who travels to Ireland to track down her sister's killer. While overseas, she discovers an extraordinary world filled with ancient secrets and tough-to-kill creatures. Protag, who has special abilities, is tasked with finding the Sinsar Dubh, a powerful yet elusive book that can help her save both the fantasy realm and the mortal world.
No exec has been assigned to oversee the project yet, though it is being envisioned as a potential live-action fantasy franchise.
The fifth and final installment of the adult-themed series, "Shadowfever," was released last December.
DreamWorks has a long-term deal with Disney to market and release its live-action pics.

I am so on the fence about this. I LOVE the series but I'm afraid it will get screwed up when they make it into a movie. NO ONE can be JZB!! 
I almost don't want it made because I know I will not be satisfied.

Hot & can act. But a little too old IMO.

Sure he's hot but can he act?!

Now if you mixed the two together you're getting a little closer but still NO JZB!


  1. what terrifies me the most is the mention of Disney. I don't want the movie. This movie needs to be rated R and knowing them they will find a way to rate it pg 13 but that will take away from the story b/c it is sort of centered on sex. like the sex by death fae for example. I mean come on. I don't want them to screw up my favorite series. Oh, and I want all unknown actors!

    but isn't dreamworks like kids movies or something? i'm confused.

  2. Wow!! I love to hear this!! Looove Barrons! I wonder about the cast.

  3. I don't think any production company will be able to pull this series off on the big screen and satisfy the fans. Leave JZB and the Fever series alone! There are probably four series I'd never want to see on-screen: BDB, Fever, Demonica, Immortals After Dark and Night Huntress, OK five. Some things are better left to your imagination!

  4. Lori, I agree 100% with your list (but for IAD, not read that one yet).

  5. I am beyond excited about this, but a little nervous too. I would love to see BDB on the big screen. Wentworth Miller could play Zsadist. Yum.

  6. Ok, Dreamworks makes great movies. I'm not worried about the Disney marketing end that just means they will get the word out better than any other advertising end. And I'm so far Grady and I think with some 300 style buffing up Gerard would be a FANTASTIC JZB
