*Update* The option has expired but the series is being shopped again. I'm hoping for all good things!
20th CENTURY FOX PURCHASES OPTION FOR CELESTRA FILM RIGHTS!!!
20th CENTURY FOX PURCHASES OPTION FOR CELESTRA FILM RIGHTS!!!
I am so honored and thrilled to announce that 20th CENTURY FOX has optioned FILM RIGHTS to the Celestra Series with the intent of turning it into a TV SERIES!!!!!!
In July, I received a call from my literary agent, extraordinaire, Rachelle Gardner who informed me that 20th Century Fox was interested in FILM RIGHTS!!! I was completely blown away. Rachelle quickly procured highly coveted film agent Joel Gotler (I LOVE that man!) who handled all the details and made sure my fairytale came true.
-->Oscar, Emmy, Golden Globe award winning, Executive Producer Stephen Gaghan of SYRIANA and TRAFFIC fame is championing the project!!!<--- AMAZING, right?!!!!
I’m so glad that after many, many months of celebrating in silence, and happy dancing in the dark, I’m able to share this great news with you.
So, on behalf of Skyla, Logan, and Gage, well, OK, Marshall, too, thank you for reading and sharing in this happy, happy news.
Oh my gosh! Does happy dance!
CONGRATS!! This is just amazing news, and I am so incredibly happy for you!!!
There are no words to exclaim how excited I am for you! This is AWESOME!
I stayed up just for this! Can't wait to see my fav characters on the screen! Yay! I'm so happy for you!
Congratulations! I'm so happy for you! The Celestra series is perfect for tv, as a film or even a series of films would not do the books justice.
Tweeted my excitement already, but I'm positively giddy for you! Well done, lovely! You're an inspiration to us all. Can't wait to see it on screen!
AHHH, congratulations! I'm so excited!! I know what I'll be watching on tv soon, lol. =)
I hope that they do an amazing job on the series... I'm anticipating actor/actress choices the most, hehe.

Congrats again; I have already Tweeted, and Facebooked my excitment, but its just too big!!! Thanks for sharing this incredible news with us... I have already said this to you, but I'd love to say it again: you are a beautiful writer, and the fact that, with a busy schedule, you take the time to share, post and answer every Tweet, every FB comment says a lot about your persona... Skyla going to Hollywood is well deserved!!!! Im doing the happy dance with you!!! :)))

Huge congrats, Addison! I'm so happy/thrilled/excited for you.
Holy pa-tooty, Addison, what a rush! Seriously, I sat here grinning ear to ear while reading this amazing news. A huge, HUUUUUGE congratulations to you and the success of your wonderful novels. I feel kind of special; I purchased the first, when the second was just a work in progress. Ta-daaaa! :)
OMG! Totally not surprised, but sooo happy for you! Well..and for me, and everyone who gets to watch it! Yay! Congrats, Addison, that's so awesome!!
How totally awesome and well-deserved. I'm so happy for you!
I seriously started screaming as soon a I saw the 20th century fox image!
Marshall in TV...that's is so AWESOME! -is still totally obsessed with Marshall, even ask her friends...on second thought, you might not want to-
I am looking forward to this now and i hope they hurry up with it! I can't stand the excitement!!
and congratulations! You and the books totally deserve this!
SWEET! What well deserved and amazing news! Congratulations!
OMG Addison!!! That is so beyond awesomely cool!! So excited for you!!
That is amazing!!!! Congratulations!!!! All your hardwork and dedication clearly paid off and you're definitely getting what you and the characters deserve!! Absolutely fantastic!!
Congrats!! This is such amazing news for you (and for us!!!) - I've always had an imaginary movie reel going in my head while reading these books - so it will be great to see how someone "Hollywood" interprets the books and puts them on the screen - I can't wait! Hooray for you!!
Congratulations!!! That's amazing news!
That's wonderful news! I will most definitely give this tv series a shot...love the books!!!!!!!
Omigosh! Amazing! Congrats! The books are wonderful, and deserves to be seen on screen as well!
Congrats! What wonderful news! So excited to get to enjoy these books again on television. This has been my favorite series to read! No matter what I am reading when a new book comes out, I stop to read that one. Hoping the tv can come close to being as good as the books are.
What amazing news! Congratulations!
OMG Addison! Congrats - that's like a dream come true. So happy for you.
So awesome! Couldn't be happier for you, and myself! haha. Because I'm going to be able to watch it!!!! Best news ever!
Truly amazing! Would love t hear the behind the scenes story someday, on how you got here. So happy to be able to celebrate with you!
CONGRATS, Addison! I'm not surprised -- the series is brilliant! Oh please oh please make sure that someone blonde and fabulous plays Skyla! <3 Can't wait!
Congratulations! That's awesome.
Holy COW, I'm so excited for you!!! You are amazing!!
Oh. My. Goodness.
Did you ever IMAGINE this would happen when you self-pubbed that first novel?
So what does this mean?? What are the chances that it will actually be a show? How long do you have to wait? Do you have any input at all? I can't wait to hear more!
I'm extremely excited about the series. I just hope the studio execs remain true to the books. T Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle and especially True Blood have strayed so far from the books the only thing they have in common is the title and character names. Every now and then something seems familiar but then goes off track.
WOW! THAT is AWESOME! I can't wait to see the TV Series! Any chance of them doing a Movie in 3D? I'd LOVE to see Skyla, Gage and Logan fighting the Fems in 3D! Any chance of a contest so the fans could see the filming?? (Just a thought)! :)
(And how am I not following this blog? Oh, I think I know how I got tripped up, but anyway, I'm here now. Got wind and had to show up w/ my big Woot Woot).
Your characters are going to Hollywood!
Lady, you know I'm over the moon about this (and a little jealous, but I'll squash that bad boy and let the over the moon part shine brighter).
That is so beyond wonderful! Congrats.
Congrats! I know you are thrilled from here to eternity!! Way to go Skyla and the gang!! :)
Absolutely a writer's dream come true!!! Congratulations!!! :)
Congratulations!!! Be sure to celebrate!

Erica Vetsch - Erica!!! Thank you for celebrating with me. I so appreciate your support.
Well, it's good to see my super sleuth powers haven't failed me yet lol; I think I called it back in early November. Now, if only I could figure out what happens to Logan, Gage, and the Skylas in the beginning of EXPEL lol, hmm...
We've been holding our breath for months, waiting for the "epic news", so it feels good to finally exhale lol. I heard that there's another popular Angel/Nephilim series that's been optioned, but the Celestra Series is so much better than all other YA PNR so I hope it hits the airwaves by the Fall.
I can't even imagine what it feels like to have an island and cast of characters you created on your own, turn into a book series loved by thousands, and now a show that will be watched by millions.
Congratulations to you, your agent, and your family! You're truly blessed, Addison Moore :)
Congratulations that is Awesome. You soooo deserve it. Your books are incredable. I lost lots and lots of sleep over them.;) You truly deserve this and can not wait to see the shows.
Woohoo, Addison! Congratulations to you. What wonderful news and I'm glad you were finally able to share it. :)
Very happy for you!
Amber J. Thank you! I'm so happy to share with you. All those moths of hints, and hoping to share, finally came to fruition. I do feel blessed. Well put!
cjenifer - Oh thank you! And lol about the lost sleep. I lose sleep over them, well, nightly. ;)
P.T. Michelle - Thanks girl! I'm thrilled to share it. I hope all goes well.
I am beyond happy about this! I finished all 5 books in a matter of 1 week! I love them! When is Expel coming out? And when is the show supposed to air? I will definitely be addicted to the show and will watch non stop! Keep makin these books! They're wonderful!
Can not wait to watch this! I read all 5 books in a matter of days and can't wait for the next one. Congrats!!
MariahLeah - SUPER BIG thank you for the book love! I'm so glad you loved the books enough to move onto the next in the series in such rapid succession! I don't have any info on the series, but when it comes I'll be putting it out. I hope you'll drop by my FB page and check out my Tuesday teasers of EXPEL and EPHEMERAL. I hope you enjoy them!
crystalf - Ack I love hearing that! You are another one of my super readers! That impresses the heck out me. I'm humbled you spent time in Paragon. Thank you! I hope you'll pop in more often and please check out the teasers on my FB page for EXPEl and EPHEMERAL. The link to my FB is on the sidebar. Thanks again!
OH WOW! This is the most awesome news EVER! You deserve it! This would make a WONDERFUL TV series. Congrats Addison Moore!!!
KC Renae - Hi KC! I love the excitement in your comment! Thank you for the Celestra love. I really appreciate it. :)
hi!!!!!!!!!!!!! i just wanted to know when your new book expel will be out i have told all my friends to read your books too.
Ciara - Thank you so much for the shout out to your friends!!!! I can't tell you how much I appreciate word of mouth. EXPEL is in edits. I wrote it a little longer than VEX so it qualifies for the biggest book of the series and it also translates into way more edits. But, edits are going smoothly so far! I'm hopeful for another month or so. :) Have you checked out the EXPEL/ EPHEMERAL teasers on FB yet? There's a link to my FB page here on the left if you're interested. Thank you for stopping by and please encourage your friends to stop by as well!
So exciting! I can't wait to see Skyla in action. Congrats it is well deserved.
Amanda Vega - Thank you! I can't wait to see Skyla and the boys getting in trouble on the island. I'm very much looking forward to the adventure. I'll keep the blog posted with details. Thank you for reading the books Amanda!
This SOOOO is awesome! I just hope they stay true to the characters!!! And they capture Gage's eyes correctly!! I will deff be tuning in... I just hope they do not make the same mistakes they did when they make other books into movies / and TV series... Keep them in Check Addison!! Please!
3Willows Photography - Thank you! I think it's pretty awesome, too. ;) LOL about capturing Gage's eyes correctly. I honestly would love to be a fly on the wall during that casting call!
Hey Addison I'm SO excited about the T.V series. I was given a kindle 4 christmas and I started reading your books. I was blown away. Yeah I cant wait to see who they cast 4 Gage and also Logan. But i have one question will it be coming to Australian TV? cause i reeeeally wanna see it!!! And i cant wait to read expel, the way you ended vex was heaps good and now i wanna read more!!!!
Heather B - Thank you! And thank you for taking a chance on my books with your brand new Kindle! Congrats on that. I swear, my e-reader is the best device I ever received.
I'm dying to see who they cast as well. It will be interesting. I'm really hoping to be there when they do, I'd love to sit and watch a steady stream of Gage, or Logan lookalikes trying out for the part.
As for where it will air, I have no clue. But hopefully one day when and if it does, it will be near you! And if not, I guess there's always the internet. ;) Thank you again for reading my books! Check out my Tuesday teasers over at FB if you like. The link is here to the left. Enjoy!
This is really fantastic news, except we have no tv :-( I guess I'll have to keep reading and hope for Netflix streaming on my PC ;-) Congratulations!
Yeah i have read the tuesday teasers. Cant get enough of them !!!! And yeah i will most certainly watch them on the internet if it doesn't air here :) i hope it does though!
reklaw0329 - Thank you! And, yes, the Internet!
Heather B - Oh, good! I'm glad you're enjoying the teasers. And I hope it airs there, too.
I'm happy for you. I've added this post to my own blog.
QueendSheena - Oh thank you! I'm going to check out your blog! Thank you so much for spreading the word. :)
Oh that's is so awesome! I some how missed this news. I knew the minute I read the first book I thought it should be a tv series.
GroundedSouls - Wow, thank you! I'm pretty thrilled. I hope to see it come to fruition soon!
I'm not a young adult anymore, but I really enjoyed this series. I can't wait to see what the movie or TV series will be like. I just downloaded the 6th book and will be reading it starting today on my lunch. :0)
FallSpice - Aw, thank you! As soon as I get any news on the Fox front I will report back and tell all. I really hope you'll enjoy EXPEL!!! Thank you so much for reading!
I must give a huuuuge "thank you" to you, Addison Moore. Your books give me something to look forward to in the realm of literary pleasures. I fell in love with the characters instantly and I am stoked to be able to watch them unfold on T.V. That said, I would love to see Liam Hemsworth (with his dark hair that he had in The Hunger Games) as Gage and Chord Overstreet as Logan. Yummy!! And I would love to play Chloe hahaha She's so rotten!
Racheliswicked - Thank you!!!! And I LOVE your casting abilities!!! Yes, Liam and Chord are yummy. And LOL about Chloe! I know, right? She'd be the funnest to play because her wickedness knows no bounds. <--- really it doesn't. ;)
Tori -TY! So am I! I'm going to dig around for info and see where they're at. I seriously need to see the real life Logan and Gage!!
Awesome news. Congratulations!!
Andrea @The Bookish Babes - Thank you Andrea!! I'm super excited!
Congratulations!! that is so exciting, cnt wait to see who plays the parts!
congratulations! i will definitely watch out for the Ethereal series :)
OH MY FRIGGING GOHD!!!! I AM SO EXCITED! I CAN HARDLY WAIT!!! DAMN! :D CONGRATULATIONS ADDISON MOORE <3
OMG! For real?! Congratulations Addison! Imma be waiting for it.
Have you heard anymore about the tv series? Just curious :)
Love these books when will the last book of the Celestra series called Elysian be coming out on kindle? It says 2013 but no date and can't wait for the tv series it will be amazing!
Yup, I'm going to Hollywood and working on this movie when I graduate, help it come to life if I can! I LOVE THESE BOOKS. It would be my dream
Yup, going to Hollywood after i Graduate to make this happen... I will help get this on the road in anyway I can- working on this film would be a DREAM!
Are there any further developments on this?? I so can't wait!
OMG! So exited! When will it come out?
OMG! So exited! When will it come out?
Is this still in the works? I ahvent heard of any updates in quite a while. I hope so.
Gosh I sooo Love this Book! Can't wait to see this on television!
Addison, Any new news on the TV Series? No Updates about it in quite a while...
That is awesome! Congrats can't wait t see it.
Hi Addison, I am seriously keeping my fingers crossed that 20th Century Fox will bring "Celestra" to life on the small screen or even to the big screen (however, I'd hope for at least a 6-8 part series..lol) I first ordered(for free)"Ethereal" and "Tremble" for my Kindle a few years ago. After reading the 1st 2 books, I was so grateful that a lot of the series had already been published. I got through what was available in a very short time. Every free moment went to "Celestra" I felt bad for my hubby and fur-babies, but they made it :) I seriously would love to see Skyla, Logan & Gage, all of my favorite characters and even not so favorites. Also, I'd love to see "Paragon" come to life! In the meantime, I just purchase "Season of the Witch" and anxiously await "Serpentine Butterfly" IMHO, if 'Celestra" were to make it on the small screen, there would be so many viewers, it would never be missed by current fans of the books and all new fans. The owner(s) of the film rights would make a ton of $$, everyone would want official merchandise, plus you've wrote enough in the series for the show to run for many years :) I will still stay positive that someone out there sees just how much of a benefit this would be for everyone involved~ Much love and best wishes~
