Christopher Kyle to Draft Shadow and Bone

February 12, 2013


Announced last September, DreamWorks Studios is developing a feature film version of Leigh Bardugo's debut novel Shadow and Bone. Today, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Christopher Kyle has been brought aboard to provide the screenplay.

In the book, the first in the planned "Grisha Trilogy," a young woman must learn to control her newly discovered power in order to save her country from the Shadow Fold, a creature-filled darkness that threatens to overrun the land.

The next book in the series, "Siege and Storm," is scheduled for release in June 2013 with the third installment coming in summer 2014.

Kyle's work as a screenwriter includes Oliver Stone's Alexander and Kathryn Bigelow's K-19: The Widowmaker.
