Quirk Books is having "a great year" for movies, Cohen notes. In February, the film version of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was released, and a movie based on Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is out now, just two examples of how many Quirk titles lend themselves to movies. "A key element," Cohen says, "is that our books are strong, commercially-driven ideas that translate well to the screen."
The company has options on and is in development with other titles. Cohen notes that Quirk has a Hollywood agency that's constantly pitching titles, and says that at Comic Con, BEA and Bookcon, production companies come by and ask what's available.
