    MOVIE DEAL!!!

    So... ARCLIGHT + Universal + Imagine Entertainment = MOVIE!!!

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...-sci-fi-422691

    Two weeks after picking up a supernatural young adult novel from hot teen author Julie Kagawa, Universal is back in the YA market, picking up the movie rights to Josin L. McQuein’s upcoming novel Arclight.

    Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer is on board to produce while Matthew Sand, best known for writing the 2009 Wachowski-produced action movie Ninja Assassin, will pen the screenplay.
