Another book to film adaptation is on its way, and we have the early word on who has acquired V.E. Schwab's novel Vicious, in which two ambitious pre-med students discover that under the right conditions a person can develop extraordinary supernatural abilities.
Per Deadline, producer/financier Story Mining & Supply Co. has teamed with Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions to acquire rights to Schwab's Vicious. Sm&Sc’s Jeffrey Sharp and production president Evan Hayes will produce with Ridley Scott and Michael Schaefer, along with Allison Gillogly. She brought in the book, which was published in September by Tor Books.
The acquisition was made through the development fund of Sm&Sc, which was formed earlier this fall by Sharp and writer/director/financier Jim Kohlberg. Kohlberg and Sharp are behind Starz’s "Outlander" and The Yellow Birds, scripted and directed by David Lowery.
