'Hush, Hush': Plot, cast, news and everything else you need to know about the upcoming supernatural teen drama
Fans of Becca Fitzpatrick's very popular young adult novel 'Hush, Hush' can finally rest easy as the film adaptation for the same, is most certainly coming soon to your screens. The original book that the film will be based on arrived a decade ago in 2009 and revolves around a young teen (Liana Liberato) who falls for a mysterious high-school hottie (Wolfgang Novogratz).
Thus transpires a tale of romance and the supernatural which starts with the two being seated next to each other in biology class. Very 'Twilight,' we agree, but when we talk supernatural in 'Hush, Hush,' instead of vampires and werewolves, we have a whole new world of fallen angels and demons alike. Kellie Cyrus - known for her work in supernatural TV shows - is onboard to direct the film, based on a script from Peter Hutchings.
Based on the NY Times bestseller that went on to have three more sequels in the saga, 'Hush, Hush,' will feature Liberato as Nora, the young protagonist of the story. After Nora manages to capture the intrigue of the new boy in school - aka the totally gorgeous, yet enigmatic classmate Patch (Novogratz) - all things strange and supernatural begin happening around her.
Starting with experiencing strange hallucinations, Nora soon finds herself in a world of fallen angels and demons, where she gets roped right into the middle of an ancient battle between the supernatural beings.
