DreamWorks Plans The Fire Sermon

DreamWorks has taken the film rights to the upcoming literary trilogy The Fire Sermon, Deadline reports. The dystopian science fiction tale arrives from Francesca Haig and will be seeking a domestic publisher next month.

Set in a post-apocalyptic 25th century, The Fire Sermon has humanity evolved without technology and all children are born as twins. The Alpha twins represent a ruling class while the mutated Omega twins are treated as lower-class individuals and sent to live in their own villages. The catch is that when one twin dies, so does the other and the story follows a brother and sister pair, one of whom rises up to become a ruler amongst the Omegas.

Carla Hacken, whose credits include films like Walk the Line and The Devil Wears Prada, is attached to produce.
