Tiger's Curse is the film adaptation of book of the same name by Colleen Houck. As of now, the film is currently in the early stages of production. No release date has been confirmed.[1]


While working at a circus over the summer, Kelsey Hayes learns that she has a powerful connection with a beautiful white tiger named Ren. When a mysterious stranger arrives to reclaim Ren and return him to his native India, Kelsey is whisked into an exotic adventure across the far reaches of the globe where she learns the powerful beast's true identity–a prince who is the victim of a 300-year-old curse. With the ability to periodically return to human form, Ren and Kelsey begin a journey through treacherous jungles, sacred temples, and the complications of love( and sex). While going face-to-face with dark forces as they piece together an ancient prophecy which holds the promise of breaking the curse, they learn to love and trust in a journey that will keep everyone on the edge of their seats.


In 2010, Colleen Houck partnered with producer Raphael Kryszek and Ineffable Pictures to produce the Tiger's Curse movie.[2] On June 1, 2011, Kryszek wrote on the Facebook Fan Page, revealing the concept art for the film on Ineffable Picture's official website.[3] In the frequently asked questions section of the Tiger's Curse website it was stated that Julie Plec—famous for her work on The Vampire Diaries—was writing for the film.[4] On December 12, 2011 it was announced that Paramount Pictures had acquired the screen rights to Tiger's Curse. It will be produced by Mary Parent through her Disruption Entertainment banner alongside Kryszek.[5] Houck confirmed this announcement days later, stating how thrilled she was and how thankful she was to her fans for helping make this to happen.[6]

On November 4, 2014, Houck announced that Shekhar Kapur would be directing the film. Also, four more executive producers—Jesse Israel, Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, D.J. Gugenheim, and Ara Keshishian—from Lotus Entertainment were revealed.[7]
