Following a bidding competition that included Netflix, Universal, and Amazon, Paramount Pictures has obtained the television rights to the bestselling YA novel trilogy Children of Blood and Bone trilogy, written by the Nigerian-American novelist.
Tomi Adeyemi will oversee, write the script and serve as executive producer. Paramount Pictures is producing this big-screen live-action with Marty Bowen of Temple Hill Entertainment, Karen Rosenfelt of Sunswept Entertainment and Wyck Godfrey.
"Tomi Adeyemi's Children of Blood and Bone has not only become a phenomenon in the YA world, it has transformed every expectation of what world-building fantasy can be," said Co-President of Paramount Pictures Motion Group Daria Cercek. "It's with enormous pride that our studio — along with Tomi and our partners Wyck, Marty and Karen — set out to bring this franchise to life on the big screen. With its thought-provoking and timely themes, we know that this story will resonate with a global audience."
