Paramount is joining the coven for Labyrinth Lost.
The studio has optioned the YA book from writer Zoraida Cordova. The story follows Alejandra Mortiz, who comes from a family of brujas (witches) and has unsuccessfully tried to hide her powers.
Ultimately, she chooses to reject her destiny of becoming a witch and casts a spell that is meant to strip her of her powers. Instead it banishes her family into the underworld of Los Lagos. Alejandra and her non-magical best friend, Rishi, go on a journey to save her family by using the very magic that she wanted to reject.
Paramount has a number of YA properties in various stages of development, including Anatomy of a Misfit and An Ember in the Ashes.
Labyrinth Lost is in the early stages of development and does not yet have a writer or any producers attached.
