Another erotic novel inspired by the 'Twilight' vampire saga has snagged a movie deal, following in the footsteps of the best selling Fifty Shades of Grey.
Constantin Film together with ‘Resident Evil’ producer Jeremy Bolt has purchased the film rights to ‘Beautiful Bastard’, a popular piece of Twilight fan fiction, The Hollywood Reporter says.
The value of the deal has not been disclosed but The Hollywood Reporter says it is around $500,000.
The novel’s story evolves around an MBA student Chloe Mills and her difficult but hot and passionate affair with her boss, Bennett Ryan.
The book written by Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, was originally published online by Hobbs. Initially it was called ‘The Office’ and was a much shorter piece of Twilight fan fiction. The writer didn’t even change the names of the main characters, leaving them as Bella Swan and Edward Cullen from the Twilight saga.
Later the author hired writer Lauren Billings to create the book after the online version proved successful. The story was downloaded over two million times before Hobbs decided to remove it. 'The Office' was reworked and released in print under the combined pen name Christina Lauren.
The authors are currently working on a sequel to the book, titled 'Beautiful Stranger', which is due to be published in May this year.
The print novel ‘Beautiful Bastard’ has been released just recently, so it is expected to take a while before the film production begins.
