I’m Rachel, your new Page to Premiere Reporter on anything and everything about the extremely popular book Wings, by Aprilynne Pike, which is headed to the big screen! To be one of the first fans to hear about news, follow me on my twitter here.
Now, for your Wings Report.
The goods news is that rights have been sold, and to quite the company: Disney.
The bad news is that there hasn’t been a whole lot of information released.
What has been released is that Disney acquired the rights to Wings, with Marty Bowen and Wick Godfrey from Temple Hill Productions producing the anticipated film, which is said to enter theaters in 2011. It has also been rumored that Tish Cyrus will be the executive producer.
Last, but simply not least, is who has been selected to play the faerie protagonist, Laurel: Singer/Actress Miley Cyrus, aka Hannah Montana.
In Wings, Laurel is a teenage girl who finds out that she isn’t like the people around her; she has wings, which mean she’s a faerie. I won’t say much else, because then I would be spoiling it for those of you who haven’t already the fantastic novel.
Leave a comment telling me how you feel about the movie. Is Miley Cyrus right for the part of Laurel? Who should play David and Tamani? Let me know!
