Roth--who also produced "Alice in Wonderland," "While You Were Sleeping," and "Mona Lisa Smile"--just announced that he's optioned the film rights to The Daughter and Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.
GalleyCat tells us a little more:
Oz: The Great and Powerful executive producer Palak Patel will serve as an executive producer. Snow White & the Huntsman producer Joe Roth has signed on as a producer.
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers released this book in 2011. Days of Blood & Starlight, the sequel, came out in November 2012. Taylor plans to conclude her series with a not-yet-titled third book.

I read Daughter not too long ago and thought it was entertaining. I had a few issues with it that made me not "love" it, but I certainly enjoyed it. I do think this one is going to translate very well to the big screen though!
Very excited to see how they cast this one too...
