Novel News : Cherie Priest's "Boneshaker" movie adaptation!

Exciting news from author Cherie Priest (The Clockwork Century and Cheshire Red Reports). The first novel of The Clockwork Century series, "Boneshaker", has been picked up by Hammer for movie production. The project will be co-financed by Exclusive and Cross Creek Pictures and co-produced by Hammer and Cross Creek Pictures . You can read the full story at Priest's site. Click here.

For those of you who haven't read her story, here is a synopsis - 

Cherie Priest's much-anticipated steampunk debut has finally arrived in the form of a paperback original. Its plot features the sort of calibrated suspense that readers of her Four and Twenty Blackbirds would expect. Boneshaker derives its title from the Bone-Shaking Drill Engine, a device designed to give Russian prospectors a leg up in the race for Klondike gold. Unfortunately, there was one hitch: On its trial run, the Boneshaker went haywire and, long story short, turned much of Seattle into a city of the dead. Now, 16 years later, a teenage boy decides to find out what is behind that mysterious wall. Can his mother save him in time? Zombie lit of the first order.

I still haven't read this series yet, but I really need to. I love her Cheshire Red series and I have meet her twice and these books always sound so interesting!
