Melissa Rosenberg the writer who wrote all five of the Twilight screenplays has been tapped by Paramount to write the script for Earthseed the first of what I'm sure the studio hopes is a trilogy. The film will be based on the novel by Pamela Sargent which was published in 1983. The Film(s) will be targeted at the same market as the Twilight franchise.
Here's the description: "A group of teens has been born from the genetic bank of a spaceship and have no traditional parents."
Rosenberg will be one of the film's producers through her Tall Girls production company.
