Once she was Eon, a girl disguised as a boy, risking her life for the chance to become a Dragoneye apprentice. Now she is Eona, the Mirror Dragoneye, her country’s savior — but she has an even more dangerous secret.

She cannot control her power.

Each time she tries to bond with her Mirror Dragon, she becomes a conduit for the ten spirit dragons whose Dragoneyes were murdered by Lord Ido. Their anguish floods through her, twisting her ability into a force that destroys the land and its people.

And another force of destruction is on her trail.

Along with Ryko and Lady Dela, Eona is on the run from High Lord Sethon’s army. Sethon has declared himself Emperor. In order to stop him, the renegades must find Kygo, the young Pearl Emperor, who needs Eona’s power if he is to wrest back his throne.

Eona, with its pulse-pounding drama, thrilling fight scenes, sizzling tension — and many surprises — brings to a close an epic story.

The cast continues to grow for Tim Burton’s upcoming adaptation of Dark Shadows, based on the supernatural serial series which ran from 1966 to 1971. Deadline reports the latest to board the production is Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass) with the young actress set to play Carolyn Stoddard, the daughter of Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer). The acting addition comes just a few days after newcomer Thomas McDonell was signed to play a younger version of Barnabas Collins with Johnny Depp having already been confirmed to play the older version of the patriarch.

Eva Green is in the role of Angelique Bouchard Collins while Helena Bonham Carter is going to play Dr. Julia Hoffman. Jackie Earle Haley rounds out the cast to play conman Willie Loomis. Burton will direct the production based on a screenplay by John August and Seth Grahame-Smith.

Plot Concept: Based on Dan Curtis’ cult ’60s supernatural TV show, “Dark Shadows” was a highly atmospheric, spooky soap-opera that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies. Johnny Depp will play Barnabas Collins, the vampire patriarch of the series which was once portrayed by Jonathan Frid.

Warner Bros. Pictures have a leading star and director finally attached to their Logan’s Run remake. They just need a screenwriter to flesh out the story in script form. Heat Vision believes that may be happening soon as writer Will Beall (“Castle”, upcoming Gangster Squad) has entered negotiations to pen a new adaptation of William F. Nolan’s 1967 novel. Beall has some recent “remake” history with Warner Bros. Pictures after being selected to write a remake of Lethal Weapon earlier this year.

Ryan Gosling has been set to star in this latest version while helmer Nicolas Winding Refn is attached to direct the sci-fi tale. Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman are on board as producers.

Plot Concept: First brought to the silver screen in the 1976 feature starring Michael York, Jenny Agutter and Farrah Fawcett, the story centers on a future society where people are executed upon reaching a certain age and those that seek to avoid their fate are deemed “Runners.” The character of Logan is one of those executioners, known as the Sandmen, who ends up on the run after he becomes sympathetic with members of an underground railroad of Runners.
