The director of New Moon has signed with Stephenie Meyer’s publishing house, Little,Brown, to publish a post-apocalyptic YA trilogy in 2014. According to MTVs Hollywood Crush:
According to the announcement from publisher Little, Brown, the literary trilogy-to-be will kick off with “The Young World”: a story about the teenage sole survivors who inherit a destroyed and desolate earth, after a cataclysmic event kills off every person on earth not between the ages of 12 and 21. Ill-equipped to restore society to working order, the surviving residents of New York City must try to rebuild their world from the ground up—a tough charge for any decimated population, but especially difficult if you’re trying to save your species from annihilation while simultaneously going through puberty. Drama will abound!
