Ryan La Sala’s buzzy YA horror book is making its way to the big screen. According to Deadline, La Sala’s latest endeavor, The Honeys, is currently in development as a feature film by Anonymous Content.
The Honeys released in August of 2022 and marks La Sala’s third published novel. The story focuses on Mars, a genderfluid teen who must reckon with the horrific death of his twin sister Caroline — the radiant and more-loved of the two. As such, Mars is often on the outside looking in, including at the prestigious Aspen Conservancy Summer Academy — a place close to Caroline’s heart. While there, Mars begins investigating Caroline’s death, focusing on a group of girls called the Honeys. During his time at Aspen, Mars begins to unravel a much darker secret.
La Sala is set to executive produce the film. David Levine and Garrett Kemble oversee the project for Anonymous Content’s AC Studios. At this time, there is no confirmed writer or director attached to the project.
La Sala released his debut novel Reverie, a YA fantasy, in 2019. His second book was a contemporary YA titled Be Dazzled, which released at the start of 2021. His next book, Beholder, releases later this year on October 3.
