Film Adaptation of Julie Kenner's Carpe Demon in Development

Carpe Demon by Julie Kenner
More information about the book

The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog has news this morning about three novel-to-film adaptations, including the first book in the Kate Connor, Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom mystery series, Carpe Demon by Julie Kenner.

The other two books are Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book and the debut young adult fright novel Killer Pizza by Greg Taylor.

1492 Pictures and CJ Entertainment are developing the projects.

About Carpe Demon (from the publisher): Lots of women put their careers aside once the kids come along. Kate Connor, for instance, hasn't hunted a demon in ages.

That must be why she missed the one wandering through the pet food aisle of the San Diablo Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, he managed to catch her attention an hour later -- when he crashed into the Connor house, intent on killing her.

Now Kate has to clean up the mess in her kitchen, dispose of a dead demon, and pull together a dinner party that will get her husband elected to County Attorney-all without arousing her family's suspicion. Worse yet, it seems the dead demon didn't come alone ...

It's time for Kate Connor to go back to work.
