In a 2015 post by Marie Lu, herself, on Tumblr, she mentioned that she envisions Metias in the person of someone like Ben Barnes which has been what Metias looks like for her as she wrote the book.

At first, Legend is supposed to be a movie when it was first announced that it will be getting an on-screen adaptation. With the book series getting a lot of traction, its fanbase is already established.

The rights to the title was first sold by Lionsgate and the producers of Twilight were set to produce. However, just as things are going on a straight line, fate had a different plan for Legend.

However, in 2018, it was later sold to BCDF Pictures where it was decided that Legend will instead be a TV series rather than a movie, and Joseph Muszynski was tapped to pen the script.

Currently, Marie Lu is working on another young adult novel titled Stars and Smoke which will be released on March 28, 2023 about a superstar, Winter Young, who gets caught up in a spy organization.

Other works of Marie Lu include The Young Elites trilogy, Warcross duology, and Skyhunter duology.
