One of the books I picked up at Book Expo America (BEA) was Marie Lu’s LEGEND, which will soon come to a theater near you thanks to CBS Films who bought the rights to the book.

According to THR, the company recently hired up-and-coming writers Andrew Barrer and Gabe Ferrari to adapt the book to screen. The movie will be directed by Jonathan Levine (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, upcoming movies 50/50 and Warm Bodies).

Legend will be released on November 29. Here is the official synopsis:

What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths – until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills.

Sound good? Will you go see the movie when it hits theaters?
