Mark Waters (“Mean Creek”) will direct the first film in Reliance Entertainment and IM Global’s “Vampire Academy” movie series. His brother Daniel, of “Heathers” fame, wrote the script.

Based on the books of the same name, “Vampire Academy : Blood Sisters” tells of “Rose Hathaway, a seventeen year old girl who has a mental and spiritual bond with her vampire best friend Lissa. The two girls attend a special school for Vampires who struggle to retain some humanity while other Vampires become more feral.”

Deadline says the first parts have already been booked; Zoey Deutch (”Beautiful Creatures”) and Australian newcomer Lucy Fry (“Lightning Point”) will play lead characters Rose and Lissa alongside Russian star Danila Kozlovski (”We Are From The Future”) who will play the role of Dimitri.

“Tonally this so different from all these movies that are so solemn and serious,” IM Global’s Ford said. “This is as much Mean Girls as The Hunger Games. ” It is snappy irreverent, sexy and just a lot of fun. And we got the right director for that kind of movie.”

Director Mark Waters said his brother Daniel turned in the best draft for the film; that got him the job, not loyalty.

“It was the best first draft I had ever read, and that includes other screenplays by my brother,” Waters said. “This is a dream project for us, since we have wanted to work together for so long. Richelle’s mythology and the world she creates is so real and her voice so clear. These kids have real life, modern day problems. And they drink blood.”
