‘Caster’: YA Novel Getting Feature Take From Scribe Maggie Levin At Paramount
Exclusive: Maggie Levin is writing an adaptation of Elsie Chapman’s young-adult novel Caster for Paramount. We understand that the deal closed before the announced departure of Paramount chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos and that the project is in very early development.

Levin currently is writing the TriStar sequel Labyrinth, which Doctor Strange filmmaker Scott Derrickson is set to direct.

Caster is part of a YA franchise in the spirit of The Hunger Games meets Fight Club. It centers on Aza Wu, who knows that real magic is dangerous and illegal. In fact, casting killed her sister, Shire. As with all magic, everything comes at a price. For Aza, it feels like everything in her life has some kind of cost attached to it. Her sister had been casting for money to pay off Saint Willow, the gang leader who oversees her sector of Lotusland, and now that debt falls on Aza’s shoulders.
