Now that Harry and Bella are gasping their last lines on-screen this year, every Hollywood studio is looking for the next great pre-teen/teen franchise. Lionsgate is hoping that 'The Hunger Games' will be their entree into this coveted zone; Warner Bros. acquired 'Heist Society' and Sony bought 'The Mortal Instruments' for the same reason. Now Paramount has optioned the novel 'Earthseed,' a 1983 sci-fi novel that was the first of a young-adult trilogy about a group of teenagers who have been born without traditional parents from the genetic bank of a spaceship.

But Paramount has something the other studios don't: Melissa Rosenberg, who adapted all the 'Twilight' films, is attached to write the script and produce through her Tall Girls Productions.
