Congratulations to Sylvia Day for THIS amazing news!! Lionsgate has optioned the rights to turn her extremely successful (and one of my FAVORITES!) “Crossfire series” into a TV series. I’m not sure yet when it will go into production and when it will air (or where it will air) but here are a few highlights:

“LIONSGATE (NYSE: LGF), a leading global entertainment company, has optioned the rights to the bestselling CROSSFIRE series of romantic novels by Sylvia Day, it was announced today by Kevin Beggs, President of the Lionsgate Television Group, and Executive Vice President Chris Selak, who will oversee development for the studio.”

“The CROSSFIRE series is an incredible property and it is a thrill to bring it to Lionsgate,” said Selak. “Sylvia has created an enduring, sexy and edgy story, and we’re looking forward to working with her to create a show that both excites and connects with audiences as her books have done.”

“I am thrilled to have Lionsgate as a partner on the CROSSFIRE series,” said Day. “This is a studio that has been incredibly successful with book adaptations and I can’t wait to collaborate with them in bringing the story to life.”

“Lionsgate is home to the highly successful book-to-television series Orange is the New Black which debuted on Netflix to critical acclaim in July and was picked up for a second season before its premiere. The studio also produces the blockbuster movie franchises Hunger Games and Twilight which have collectively grossed more than $4 billion at the box office worldwide.”

You can bet I’ll be watching. Gideon moving in real-life with all of his cocky attitude and drop-dead gorgeousness. And those eyes. *shivers*

Now most of my fellow readers and I have read this and LOVED it, but if some of you are new to this contemporary romance “sexy-alpha billionaire with issues” series, here are a few links that that you’ll want to check out (P.S. She has issues, too!! Love it! :D ):

I hope they put it on HBO or Showtime.

I heard about this awhile ago (as a possible HBO series) and that is why the series was changed from a trilogy to five books.

Marina August 5, 2013 at 7:44 PM

Gideon Cross =David Gandy = drooling in front of tv = please!!!!!!

Kerrie August 5, 2013 at 8:19 PM

riky August 6, 2013 at 7:56 AM

Sylvia Day is an amazing author but I just can’t see this story as a “tv series”. A mini-series on HBO or a movie absolutley. EWY was good but just didn’t feel complete. How will this story be effected by a tv series? The trilogy has now turned into a pentalogy.

twilla August 6, 2013 at 9:24 AM

OMG! Please let it be on cable not regular tv!

Sondra August 6, 2013 at 10:21 AM

I absolutely LOVE this series!!! It is sooo easy to fall in love with Gideon and Eva too. The entire cast is awesome and Sylvia Day does a great job with character development. I was so dissapointed to learn there are 2 more books after this!! It had been over 6 months since I read the first 2, so I read them again thinking this was a trilogy. Now I can’t wait for the next one!!! Oh well… too late cuz I am HOOKED now!!

Seema August 6, 2013 at 10:48 AM

Wow!! I can’t wait to see this! And I agree it should definitely be on cable so it doesn’t have to be PG!!

Andrea August 6, 2013 at 12:06 PM

I am soooo looking forward to this! I think Henry Cavill would be a great Gideon (and apparently Sylvia Day likes him for the part too!).

riky August 9, 2013 at 2:03 PM

can’t wait for the series to come out i love the books hoop the 4th books com out soon

Laura August 12, 2013 at 11:14 AM

I think that Henry cavill should be the hot and sexy cross because he is so delicious! He is perfect for the roll.

Mandy September 11, 2013 at 4:42 AM

I hope we get to see it in South Africa too…

Linda September 11, 2013 at 7:52 PM

I loved the books. I would love to see Henry Cavill in the role of Gideon, but I’m a huge fan of David Gandy as well. I just hope they chose a Gideon who really personifies the character. I was disappointed in the Fifty Shades casting.

christina prosser January 15, 2014 at 3:41 PM

will this be aired in the uk and when?

Linda January 15, 2014 at 8:10 PM

I’m hoping it will be aired in the US -and I’m casting a vote for either Henry Cavill or David Gandy. Either would be perfect.

Charlotte February 19, 2014 at 8:51 AM

Henry Cavill would be the BEST to play Gideon Cross. He is so freaking HOT!!!! I cant wait, I have read the books to many times Im trying my hardest to wait for Captivated By You lol Its driven me Crazy!! Now to know it will be on TV as well Just makes it even Better!!! Thankyou for such Great Books I Love them!!!
