The bloodsucking teens just keep coming. Plans are afoot to transform 'Vampire Academy,' a six-book saga about kids at a school for vampires tucked away in the forests of Montana, into a feature film by 'Transformers' producer Don Murphy, according to a report in Variety. Set at St. Vladimir's Academy, the series centers on Rose Hathaway, a 17-year-old female "dhampir" -- a member of a race of peaceful mortal vampires who are half human -- who must deal with teen problems while facing a group of bloodthirsty immortal vampires who feed upon her race. Author Richelle Mead's first 'Academy' book debuted in 2007, making the New York Times Bestsellers list and has been published in 34 countries. The sixth and final installment is scheduled for release in December. The producers are beginning discussion with studios on the project. The bloodsucking teens just keep coming.

A sobbing Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail Tuesday for violating the terms of her probation in a drunken driving case. Beverly Hills Judge Marsha Revel ordered the 24-year-old actress to begin serving her sentence in an L.A. County jail on July 20. This follows a June 8 arrest warrant issued for Lohan for violating her probation -- she failed to complete her court-ordered alcohol education classes stemming from a 2007 drunk driving incident and missed her last court appearance in May while attending the Cannes Film Festival in France. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lohan told the judge, "I have to provide for myself. I have to work. Having said that, I did everything to balance my jobs and showing up. I'm not taking this as a joke. It's my life. It's my career." But the judge would have none of that; she scolded the actress for being less than truthful about her alcohol and drug intake before passing sentence.
