During the beginning of 2006 film studios were acquiring novels for adaptation at such a rate that we had grown tired of it. When summer hit, however, the fad seemed to had died out. Nowadays we don't mind hearing about a new book or two getting prepped for film.

So, what is it today?

The Book Thief Adaptation

According to Variety, Fox 2000 has acquired the bestselling young-adult novel The Book Thief, written by Australian writer Markus Zusak.

Karen Rosenfelt has been picked up to produce.

The 550-page, World War II-era novel, narrated by Death, tells the story of Liesel Meminger from the time she is taken at age 9 to live with a foster family in a German working-class neighborhood. Liesel arrives having just stolen her first book, "The Gravediggers Handbook" -- it will be the beginning of a love affair with books.

Rosenfelt, who used to produce films over at Paramount, has recently signed a two-year deal with Fox 2000 and 20th Century Fox. Her film credits include the upcoming adaptation of Charlotte's Web.

Stay tuned for updates.
