Filmmaker turned novelist Chris Weitz (“The Twilight Saga : New Moon”) will direct a film version of his upcoming young adult novel, “The Young World”. Warner Bros won the rights to the book, and consequent film on Friday after a heated bidding war between several studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Weitz’s post-apocalyptic themed book hits stores this year; “Young World” is expected to be the first in a trilogy.

The books center on teenage 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.

Weitz, also a producer on the film, also counts “The Golden Compass” and “A Better Life” among his film credits.
