Amanda Hocking sells Trylle Trilogy film rights

Let’s add another YA series to the list of potential successors to the Twilight throne: EW has confirmed a New York Times report that Amanda Hocking, the 26-year-old self-publishing phenom behind the Trylle Trilogy (which includes Switched, Torn and Ascend and chronicles heroine high schooler Wendy Everly’s entry into a paranormal world populated by beautiful trolls), has sold the film rights to the production company Media Rights Capital. Terri Tatchell, co-writer of District 9 (and married to its director, Neill Blomkamp), is reportedly already at work on adapting two out of the three novels for films and will serve as producer.
