Hollywood Crush has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Not to tear you away from your obsessive googling for news from the set of "Catching Fire," but fans of YA literature who are looking for their next big-screen obsession might want to pay attention to this latest intel from The Hollywood Reporter: a movie deal for the soon-to-be-released "Black City" series by author Elizabeth Richards. The first book in the fantasy franchise hasn't even hit stores yet, but Screen Gems has already snapped up film rights and is looking for a writer to work the adaptation.

"Black City" is one of this year's most anticipated books, offering up a new, exciting take on some well-traveled fantasy fiction territory, featuring a landscape torched by terrible wars between humans and...well, not humans. In this case, it's a Darkling race that lives over a high wall in a segregated city—and it's a half-Darkling boy who serves as the tormented, forbidden object of lust for the story's human heroine. Sexy! Spooky! SEXY! And however you'd rather get your first "Black City" fix, be it in print or on screen, it's definitely a title to watch.
