Matthew Vaughn, director of X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass, will adapt Tonya Hurley’s popular young adult series Ghostgirl after acquiring the film rights through Vaughn’s production company, Marv Films, Variety reports. Vaughn will produce with Valerie Van Galder, although it is unknown if he will also direct.
The Ghostgirl series tells the tales of Charlotte Usher, a high school misfit who strives to be popular amongst her fellow students even after her untimely death. The series, which began publishing in 2008, so far consists of six books, including Ghostgirl: Homecoming, Ghostgirl: Lovesick, as well as two Spanish language editions, Dia de Muertos, and Diario Mortal.
