So if they already made a movie, then why is Netflix taking it on? Is the story that interesting enough for a series by Netflix?

I've seen the movie too, I quite enjoyed it from what I can remember. But I didn't know how many books there were.

Did the movie they to encompass the totality of the story or merely the first book?

Curious if the series will start afresh or reinterpret the novels. Is the movie of the same name?

It sure is.

This was announced about a month ago.

'Wayward Pines' Creator Tapped to Adapt 'Darkest Minds' (Exclusive) - Hollywood Reporter

Quote:
Minds is set after a pandemic kills most of America’s children and teenagers. When some survivors develop various superpowers, they are deemed too dangerous for society, taken from their families and placed inside internment camps.

The first book tells of a 16-year-old with telekinetic powers who escapes her camp and joins a group of teens on the run from the government.

Minds was published December 2012 while the second book, Never Fade, was released in October 2013. Both were New York Times best-sellers. The final book, In the Afterlight, is due to hit stores October 2014.

With the hiring of Hodge, Fox is signaling a serious push into the YA field. The studio has YA adaptation The Maze Runner opening Sept. 19 and sees both Runner and Minds as franchise hopefuls.

Billy Rosenberg and Dan Cohen are overseeing Minds for 21 Laps.

I'm currently reading this book.

Quote:
The Jackal Group, a co-venture between Fox Networks Group and Gail Berman, has acquired Grady Hendrix’s recently released supernatural mystery novel Horrorstör for development as a television series.

Designed in the format of a furniture catalog (parallels with Ikea are inevitable), Horrorstör is described as a classic old-fashioned haunted house story set in Orsk, a Swedish-style big-box furniture superstore. Each morning, Orsk employees arrive to find broken Kjërring bookshelves, shattered Glans glassware and vandalized Liripip wardrobes — clearly, someone or something is up to no good. To unravel the mystery, five employees agree to spend a long dusk-till-dawn shift at the store, unaware of the darkness that awaits them. “Horrorstör tells a compelling, old-fashioned horror story but against a contemporary and relatable backdrop,” said Berman. “This is truly a property that is meant to come to life in live action, and I am excited to be a part of it.”
