Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Peirce has signed on to direct Wicked Lovely, according to Heat Vision Blog.

The movie is based on the novel by Melissa Marr, which centers on a young girl who has the ability to see a hidden fairy world. Wicked Lovely is the first novel in Melissa Marr's fairy series, with the fourth book, Radiant Shadows, to be published later this year.

Kimberly Peirce will direct from an adapted screenplay by Caroline Thompson. No production schedule was released for the new project.
