Entertainment Weekly reported the news just this morning:

Emma Roberts is returning to TV as the star of Fox’s  Delirium.

The Nancy Drew and Scream 4 actress has been cast in the lead role in Fox’s pilot based on the bestselling young adult novels by Lauren Oliver.

The books take place in an alternative present-day Maine when civilization has been partly destroyed by war and a totalitarian government teaches that love is literally a disease (commonly called the delirium). There’s a surgical cure for love that’s mandatory for citizens 18 and older. The story follows 17-year-old Lena (Roberts) who is eagerly awaiting her turn to get the cure when she falls in love with an Invalid (a person who hasn’t taken the cure that lives in the wilderness). Not surprisingly, the story has draw some comparisons to The Hunger Games and Twilight.

Roberts previously starred in the Nickelodeon series Unfabulous then went onto big-screen roles including the upcoming Empire State and We’re the Millers. Karyn Usher (Prison Break) wrote the pilot and is an executive producer alongside Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Paula Mazur and Mitchell Kaplan on the 20th Century Fox TV project.

This casting news is something I don’t think any fan saw coming.

  1. LEAVE EMMA ROBERTS ALONE! Ok, (I think shes perfect) some of you might not like the idea of her being Lena, but what did you expect? If things were perfect life would have no meaning! I know there are other girls but Emma is really the best it can get!

  2. It makes a little sense, Lena’s supposed to be short, skinny, and average looking with dark hair. Also, Emma Roberts is a really good actress, she may have started off on dorky tv shows and whatnot, but she’s good. I can’t wait to see her portrayal.

  3. I think she is PERFECT for this role, and every role she has been, or will be in! She is an extraordinary actress and a wonderful person. I can not WAIT to see her as Lena in Delirium!

  4. Ummmmmm how About No. Someone Better (Not Trying To Be Rude) Its Just She Doesnt Seem Like Lena, Lena Has REALLY Unique Personality. Its Gonna Someone Really Good To Play Lena. && It Would Suck If The Book And Movie Were Not Alike At All Even How The Characters Look Like Alex’s Hair is Like Autumn(Physical Characteristics). I Never Seen A Movie Where Its Almost As Close And Good As The Book. It Would Be Awesome If That Happened. Please Dont Ruin The Book. It Was The Best Book I Ever Read And The First Series I Ever Read. This Is Just My Opinion And Probably Some Of Tge Delirium Fans Too (:
