|Tomi Adeyemi's Book 'children Of Blood And Bone' To Be Adapted Into A Movie by dachiwater: 9:55am On Feb 22|
Tomi Adeyemi's book 'Children of Blood and Bone' will now be adapted into a movie, as Rick Famuyiwa, director of The Critical darling, coming-of-age movie Dope, has signed on to direct the Fox 2000's adaptation of the best-selling YA novel.
Tomi Adeyemi's book 'Children of Blood and Bone' which will now be adapted into a movie, first made headlines after she sold her debut book in the seven-figure range, one of the biggest for a YA debut. The book which was pitched as an "African Last Airbender" and "Black Panther with magic," was published March 6, 2018, and hit best-seller status. The second novel in an intended trilogy, Children of Virtue and Vengeance, will be released June 4, 2019.
The plot of the movie is set in a magic-infused kingdom 'Orisha', where a young woman named Zelie Adebola witnesses the death of her mother and other magicians, called "maji," under the order of a ruthless king. The woman has a chance to restore magic to her land, but has to first team up with a rogue princess and outwit and outrun a crown prince while avoiding prowling snow "leoponaires" and vengeful spirits that wait in the waters.
