Book boyfriends. Sometimes – depending on how fast you read – they are like flavors of the month or flavors of the week. Then there are those that stay with you for all time. Jace, Four, Finnick… and my all time favorite Gus. That’s the great thing about authors – they give you what you need, even when you don’t know that you need it.

Remember when we first told you about this movie adaptation? (No? We know it’s been a while, click here.)
Well, according to Dread Central the final book in the series, Deicide now has a release date! (So the movie adaptation can’t be far behind, right?)
Tim Hawken’s Hellbound book trilogy will be completed this December when his new book, Deicide, is released. Additionally, there has been much discussion about turning the story into a movie series featuring Charlie Bewley.
From the Press Release
The third and final book in Tim Hawken’s Hellbound Trilogy is set for release this December, amid development of a film franchise for the series. Titled Deicide, the novel concludes the epic story, which depicts a world of Hell never seen before.
Early critical acclaim and a strong cult following for Hellbound meant Hawken’s work captured the attention of Hollywood right from the start. The author has recently signed partnerships with both Luber Roklin Entertainment and Savela/Kabatoff Productions to help bring his vision to the silver screen. In addition, actor Charlie Bewley (Twilight, “Vampire Diaries”, Hammer of the Gods) has been attached to play the lead character of Michael in the films.
“I found out about Hellbound when a friend gave me the first book,” Bewley said of the trilogy. “I knew right away I wanted to play Michael. Hawken’s dark genius leaps off the page in a visceral way. It grabs you and shakes you up, leaving you thinking about it for months afterward. This is the next big thing in the supernatural genre. The struggle for redemption in a dark world is something that resonates with everyone it touches.”
Ken Kabatoff of Savela/Kabatoff Productions also expressed his excitement at being involved with the Hellbound franchise. “This was an easy decision for us to make. Tim’s series is as enticing as the forbidden fruit itself. It has alluring visuals, crisp dialogue and an invigorating story, all staged in an ancient setting, which Hawken has turned on its head. It’s going to make one amazing film.”
Hawken himself remains humble about the attention his work has received to date. “When you first write something like this, you really don’t know how it’s going to be received. Being a previously unknown author from Australia, I still pinch myself that so many people have shown confidence in my work, right from my publishers, to the fans and now to filmmakers and actors. It’s crazy. The next step is bringing a major studio on board, but with the team of people behind Hellbound now, it feels like the momentum is only getting stronger. It’s a very good atmosphere to be launching the last novel in. Deicide is going to lift it to the next level and end with a bang!”
Deicide will be available from all good book retailers, in both paperback and ebook formats from early December, via Rethink Press.

I am prepared for the hate that I am going to get. Kellan Lutz as Edward Cullen? I can’t see it. I really just can’t see it. I mean I get that a lot of people love him – and I do too – but just can’t see him as Edward.
He talked with Access Hollywood on why he wouldn’t want to play Edward and how he loved playing Emmett.
Could “The Twilight Saga” fans ever imagine Kristen Stewart pining away for an Edward Cullen played by Kellan Lutz – because the actor was sought after for the role played by Robert Pattinson, but turned it down.
“The role just didn’t… I just didn’t care to entertain it,” Kellan said on Monday’s Access Hollywood Live.
“I really wanted to play a happy role or no role for a little bit,” he told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, explaining that his role in “Generation Kill” left him wanting something more upbeat
“I didn’t care to audition for [the role of Edward] because he was a bit moody and emotionally challenged,” the 28-year-old, who played Edward’s brother, Emmett Cullen, in the series, continued.
“But then I loved Emmett… I’m so blessed to have been able to play him,” he said.
Fandoms are clashing again – this time it’s Twilight and Percy Jackson! Was I the only one that didn’t know that Alexandra Daddario and Ashley Greene were filming a movie together. Doesn’t hurt that the man that they are filming with is Anton Yelchin.
It’s Kellan Lutz. He’s in a toga. He’s Hercules. I am there!
