Pure is set in a post-apocalyptic world divided into two societies: the Pures, who live under a dome and are healthy and beautiful, and the Wretches, those scarred by the devastation. In this world, Pressia, a Wretch on the run, teams up with the son of the leader of the Pures.

The book, by Julianna Baggott, is part of a planned trilogy. The second installment, Fuse, is due to be published Feb. 19. (The first tome was released in September2012.)

Ponsoldt will write the script and is attached to direct.
