Is it really true? I saw a blurb about the first book, The Living Nightmare, being made into a movie scheduled to be released in 2008. There is no mention of a cast or firm plot but from what I have read, it seems to mirror the first book to a tee. Darren Shan fans .. who would be best to play the parts of Darren, Steve and Crepsley? If Dakota Fanning gets the part of Annie .. I am not going to be a happy camper!

There is a small entry about it at IMDB.com but it doesn't give many specifics about it. I am hoping to keep this thread alive until something a little more concrete comes from it.
