harry styles fanfiction to be made into a movie

EXCLUSIVE: UTA has signed to represent screen rights for After, a serialized story by Anna Toddthat has become the most followed literary property published by Wattpad, an online community in which writers tell stories chapter by chapter. According to Wattpad general manager Candice Faktor, the three-part series After has been clicked on by more than 500 million.

Factor described the site as “a writer and reader community to collaborate and share nonfiction, fiction and fan fiction. It is a mobile experience that is very social and where writers establish a personal connection with their audience.” The site launched seven years ago and has built to 22 million monthly users, 80% of whom access the site on mobile devices. The company recently raised $46 million in Series C funding.

Agencies usually rep works from traditional publishers, but the priority in Hollywood is to find rabid followings that warrant screen adaptations. For Wattpad, After is the closest thing the site has experienced to Fifty Shades Of Grey, which began in similar fashion as fan fiction before it became a massive global bestseller and an upcoming Universal/Focus feature for author E.L. James. The way Faktor describes it, After sounds like a close cousin, without the S&M. “A happy, optimistic young girl falls in love with a guy with a dark side that is addictive, and their relationship is a rollercoaster ride,” Faktor said.

Writers don’t get paid by Wattpad, but they retain copyright ownership of the chapters they publish. After author Todd writes and publishes the stories chapter by chapter, and then spends most of her day interacting with her huge audience through social media. Agency and Faktor feel that this rabid fan base makes After an enticing movie title. It’s the first time Wattpad has become involved in the attempt to set one of its contributors in a deal like this. It is likely UTA will steer future Wattpad titles into the marketplace.

“The fans are dying for the movie,” she said.

but when will larry be a movie??? ps i am so embarrassed for the 1d fandom rn

Oh hell no. This is horrible. The guys are clearly uncomfortable with fan fiction every time they talk about it!

Also, Wattpad?!? Ew.

This ongoing trilogy tells the story of Tessa Young, an optimistic freshman at Washington State University, and the dark, troubled guy who has stolen her heart. After is reading that you can’t get enough of: a story as addictive as TV with new chapters added every few days.

Tessa Young is an 18 year old college student with a simple life, excellent grades, and a sweet boyfriend. She always has things planned out ahead of time, until she meets a rude boy named Harry, with too many tattoos and piercings who shatters her plans.


what in hell

Is that character even remotely like Harry. Does anyone know. I don't want to read to find out.
zephyrkist 17th-Apr-2014 08:25 pm (UTC)
I can't believe people think harry is like this... HARRY.... come on. Remember that time he went to trash a dressed room and he just placed the cup on its side?
bubblegum_b 17th-Apr-2014 08:34 pm (UTC)
idk but he is like on the cover lmao
lcritter12 20th-Apr-2014 01:56 am (UTC)
ok so i shamelessly have read all of this trilogy and love it to pieces, however I wouldn't say Harry's character is intended to have much of any similarities with Harry irl. It's mainly her own original work and the character looks and sounds like him....

I'm not surprised since her favorite books are 50 Shades and Beautiful Bastard

for some reason 1D fans who love reading harry het fics are really hung up on the idea of harry being an abusive asshole. i've never read these fics but i know a fic called "dark" is also really popular and has harry characterized the same way, it makes me angry that this is what teenagers love to read and this is what they're turning into a movie. the fact that studios are encouraging this just to make some $$$ is so dumb.
xdecadentx 17th-Apr-2014 08:35 pm (UTC)
why is this the plot to EVERY story like this?
sensualcoco 17th-Apr-2014 08:37 pm (UTC)
I thought it was written by a 14 year old but the info says she's married? What?
shayme 17th-Apr-2014 08:40 pm (UTC)
This is why I'll never understand Dark and After. These het fanfics are nothing like him!
ellecain 17th-Apr-2014 08:46 pm (UTC)
How do you even deal with the cognitive dissonance from AbusiveEdward!Harry and Cupcake!Harry?

Like at least pick a different member for this shit.

lovepollution 17th-Apr-2014 09:23 pm (UTC)
lmao, I am dying and I'm only one paragraph in.

"Tessa!!" I hear my mom's voice call from downstairs. I groan to myself and roll out of my tiny, yet comfortable bed. While neatly tucking the corners of my bed sheet into the headboard, I take my time because this is the last morning that I will be competing the task for months.
