Some very very very exciting news has officially been announced. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Chad Hodge has been tapped to adapt the first book of The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. Shawn Levy and 21 Laps are producing the film.

With the hiring of Hodge, Fox is signaling it is making a serious play into the YA field. The studio has YA adaptation The Maze Runner opening Sept. 19, and sees Runner and Minds as franchise hopefuls.

Chad is wonderful and The Darkest Minds is in fantastic hands.
