Angels Take Over in Anticipated Film Adaptation of 'Hush Hush' [PHOTOS]

By on

"Harry Potter" and "Twilight" are over which means good bye wizards, witches, werewolves and sparkly vampires.

Thankfully, there are over a hundred more awesome books to last a lifetime. One of the most hyped books nowadays is the novels of Becca Fitzpatrick, "Hush Hush." It's time to say hello to the otherworldly creatures known as nephilims and fallen angels.

Suzanne Collins definitely made it big with the film adaptation of "The Hunger Games" and another author whose popularity and sales are sure to boost up is Becca Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick's novel, "Hush Hush" has been quite talked about in the film industry. Like "The Hunger Games", "Hush Hush" is set to become a film.

For those who still haven't heard of the books, the book synopsis is as follows: "Hush, Hush follows Nora Grey, a 16-year-old who catches the attention of Patch, her gorgeous, yet enigmatic biology partner. When she starts experiencing mysterious hallucinations, Nora learns that she's at the center of an age-old conflict that reaches the heavens itself.

Patch is fallen angel desperate to be human again, but that humanity could come at the cost of Nora's life. Will he sacrifice Nora to save himself?"

Becca's novel somewhat resembles the other highly-anticipated film adaptation of the book series, "The Mortal Instruments" by Cassandra Clare. Both authors delve into the world of fallen angels all caught up in romance, action and drama.

With the final installment of "Hush Hush", "Finale" already released plus a big movie deal, Becca has been feeling nothing more than extremely blessed.

"It's a big month for me. I'm just trying to handle one thing at a time," exclaimed Fitzpatrick, adding, "It's been in the works for almost a year. When I'm writing, I see it very visually in my head, so I feel it will be very easy to adapt."

Unlike "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" which trailer has already been released that stars Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, Becca is yet to find the actors to play Nora and Patch.

"That's always the hardest part to nail in any movie - making sure you get the right actors and that they're portraying the characters well," said Fitzpatrick.

"I started writing Hush, Hush almost ten years ago, so I was picturing actors who are obviously now too old to play the parts. I wanted Steven Strait for Patch and Emmy Rossum for Nora, but that won't work anymore," explained Becca, adding, "I would hope for someone that hasn't been discovered yet. Other than that, I'm just going to leave it up to LD. I trust them to do a good job."

Production for "Hush Hush" is set to begin by Fall of 2013.
