Update on the Uglies Movie

June 21st, 2009

As I mentioned in my last post, I spent part of Friday afternoon on the phone with the Uglies movie production team. It was great to go into that conversation armed with all the suggestions you guys have been making, both here and on my Twitter feed.

So thanks for all your input. Now here’s what’s going on:

Uglies is currently optioned to be a movie, or possibly a series of movies if the first one does well. To “option” a book is Hollywood-speak for buying the exclusive right to make a movie based on it. But the buyers don’t have to make a movie. Most options never go anywhere, in fact. But it certainly means that these producers are interested.

(What happens if this group doesn’t make the film(s)? In a couple of years I have the right option the book to someone else. In other words, options have time limits.)

Where are we now? Well, there’s no script, director, or actors lined up yet. So be patient and stop asking me about casting! If there are open auditions, you’ll see it here first.

So this phone call was mostly us getting to know each other and talking about what makes Uglies special to us. Most of the conversation was me talking, which was interesting. Sometimes Hollywood folks seem compelled to tell me all about my books. But these folks listened. And when I told them about my previous post, they were dying to shoot over and read your comments. So keep them coming!

Here are some of the things I told them:

Most of you guys want unknown actors for Tally and Shay, but maybe someone famous for Dr. Cable. The producers get that, and they also understand how important casting is, given that you could break the whole theme of the film by putting the World’s Most Beautiful Actress in the starring role.

I also told them how important setting is to you guys. How the world-building, tech hoverboards, etc., have to be real. This movie should look good, and more importantly, it should look right. Excellently, it turns out that one of the producers has read Bogus to Bubbly. She also sends it along to the screenwriters they’ve been approaching. That is a Good Thing.

I told them you guys want a faithful adaptation, and they said definitely, because, as one of them put it, “The book is a movie already.” In other words, the story doesn’t have to get completely reshaped to fit the screen. (I doubt there will be any of this putting-all-three-books-into-one-movie crap.)

So what are the chances of the movie happening soon? Well, movies cost tens of millions of dollars, and nothing that requires that much money plus human creativity is ever easy to predict. But the producers did say that there’s lots of support for this project at their studio, where certain execs have been known to speak in bubble-talk. This seems like a very good sign to me.

Anyway, that’s everything I know. Watch this space for further developments. So you can stop asking me about casting calls. Seriously.

(Oh, and if you’re one of the producers reading this, don’t worry, I won’t blog every darn thing you say to me. It’s just that a lot of fans have been asking about this for a long time, and I figured it was time to give them a major update. Normally I am a master of discretion, and will only twitter what you say to me.)

    You know who would make an awesome Tally? Thora Birch. And Tilda Swinton would rock as Dr. Cable.

    I know… I know…. But yeah. Even an optioning of the book has me all atwitter.

    I hope they make it into a movie, but I’m definitely not going to get my hopes up. I’m glad that there is a lot of support for it in their studio, that means that, besides it having a better chance of being turned into a movie, they’re more likely to do a better job! (Or so I think.)

    This is so awesome! I can’t believe this! You need lots of people that are undiscovered or it will seem… fake. Like Twilight had Kirsten Stewart… bad move. Some of the characters like Dr.Cable could be someone famous though. Just not like you know, Miley Cyrus or something. Dont make the mistake of making everyone famous though! ( bad choices Twilight! Dont do the Jonas Bros. in your film people! )

    And, in my own personal opinion, I think Angelina Jolie would be a great Dr. Cable! She’s gorgeous, but still has the scary effect to the structure!

  14. 14
    June 21st, 2009 05:10

    I’d like to see Nicole Kidman as Dr. Cable. She just looks so predatory- Golden Compass, anyone?

  15. 15
    June 21st, 2009 05:11

    I am so excited! If the movie does go through, I’ll be right there the moment it comes out! I just hope it sticks to the story line, well, because in some movies that came out of books, like Twilight, they miss very important parts, but that is just in my opinion.
    Good luck and I hope everything works out well.

    June 21st, 2009 05:37

    That would be awesome! I can’t wait, make sure to let us know about casting before anyone else if it all works out. My cousin would be perfect for David. I think that everyone is right and there shouldn’t be a ton of famous actors. But maybe a few could have small parts to draw people’s attention to the movie.

    June 21st, 2009 06:09

    Tilda Swinton would make a phenomenal Dr. Cable, I agree.

    It’s very cool to involve the fans in this. You’ll come out with a much better product. A lot of book adaptations have been disappointing to fans and lackluster to the uninitiated. Listening to what the readers look for in the movie is a big step towards remedying this, because you are infusing the movie with the same spirit that made the book so popular. The Uglies series is one I have always dreamed of seeing as a movie, because, as you said, it is a movie already. It is so easy to see it translating to the screen. The visuals alone would be worth it.

    June 21st, 2009 06:20

    Here’s my one piece of input:
    They practicly RUINED Twilight(dont get me started)With the line work in the trees.MAKE IT LOOK REAL!!!!!!!!

    I agree,Tally and shay and Zane and David all have to be unknown actors.

    Also=Make sure they use all they funny terms(happy-making,sad-making ect.) Choose a wrighter who will read the books FIRST,and try an add as many little hints as possible(AKA like in twilight the lie about the wolves decending-halarious)

    Ok.Thank you.I’ve had my say.

  25. 25
    June 21st, 2009 06:26

    Oh, I’m rereading the series again RIGHT NOW and this is exciting! I definitely think there should be unknowns for Tally and Shay and David . . . and I think it’s VERY important to know that they AREN’T pretties in the beginning!! i don’t know how the casting will work from Uglies to Pretties to Specials – in terms of the changing of Tally and Shay – but Hollywood can do wonders with make-up! Still, they can’t be like, symmetrically pretty. Though Shay is pretty, I think. David has to be attractive, but a growing on you quality. He’s got to be rough and wild, but that’s the beautiful part of him.

    They need to look 16!!!

    I think Maddy and Dr. Cable could both be known actresses, though I don’t know who exactly . . . not Nicole Kidman, she’s already tried to do it. But someone very angular. If Helen Mirren wasn’t the age she is, I would say she would be great – voice wise, especially. I think Dr. Cable’s voice is very important.

    It’s also a kind of small role, but the Boss could also be someone known . . . I always imagine a kind of heftier-gone-wild Johnny Depp. I think it’s the wild eyes and crazy hair. Or Hugh Jackman . . . though if you could get Patrick Stewart in there anywhere, I would be super happy!!! ;)

    And yeah, don’t mess with the plot! The book is an action movie already!

    So excited! And I think I would make an excellent extra . . . a ranger or a special . . . heee.

    I Love nicole kidman she rocks if you could find between her and agallina you would have the perfect Dr.coble. So Mary and elle are both right yay and scott~la i realy hope the movie comes out b/c then ur book would be all the crazzzz like twilight (pucking~sound– blaaaaa).

    LONG LIVE THE SMOKE!!!!! (and tally)

    i think the which in The Lion the Whitch and the Wardrobe is the most perfectest actress for Dr.C

    i agree about the unknown thing for tally and her group? but on the IMBD comments for Uglies( ) the ppl there totally know all the right actor for everything

    and if u ned a director, soundtrack creator, actress, script writer or anything else im ssure most ppl commenting would be happy to help;D

    ditto~ LONG LIVE SMOKE

    June 21st, 2009 07:34

    I’m sooo excited…

    The casting for David and his parents will be tricky, because they have to have a clear resemblence. You HAVE to have the actors at the right ages. And use the books slang in a way that’s convincing. Scenery’s going to be important, from the city to her trip to the Smoke… I’m especially looking forward to the views on her journey. Scott should work with the people when it comes to the building designs for New Pretty Town, because it has to be distinctive and unique. Having someone who’s read Bogus to Bubbly is very good. =)

    As long as they cast unknowns for the main people, I hope they get famous people for people like Cable. I can see Jolie as her… though I would prefer Tilda Swinton.

    June 21st, 2009 08:01

    Oh my gosh, this is going to be sooooooo cool! Yay! If only all of the other books that I’ve heard are going to become movies weren’t just like being forgotten… like this was before all of a sudden finally we get some action! Now hopefully, the House of Night movie will like get started, along with the Maximum Ride one and the Warriors one…

    June 21st, 2009 08:25

    Sounds like the call when great. The people you talked to seem to have really understood the important parts of an adaptation to keep it like you and all us fan-freaks visioned:P Congrats on a good phone call. I hope it gets picked up and put into production soon! I can’t wait for more information:)

    And thanks so much for taking the time to listen to all of us cyber-scream at you about what we wanted!

  32. 32
    June 21st, 2009 08:36


    Be sure the events in the (possible) movie happen in the same order as the events in the book. Too many movies have things out of order because the directors think it’ll look better.

    About casting… for sure, unknowns for all the mains, including David. Try not to have major actresses for Dr. Cable or Maddy, but not a complete unknown either.

    Hope this gets off the ground!

    June 21st, 2009 08:41

    And as far as who could play Dr. Cable, I do like the idea of Angelina Jolie or Tilda Swinton, but I think they may be a bit… old? Like, I’m not sure, but I always imagined Dr. Cable as being younger, just being extremely intimidating (which I’m sure we all noticed). I would think that someone like Keira Knightley would work, almost. Something about her doesn’t quite fit, but that’s just my example for now.

    What about Sienna Guillory? She played Arya in Eragon and Jill Valentine in Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Google her. I think she could work, though she isn’t overly famous.

    June 21st, 2009 08:55

    WOW! Congratulations Scott! That’s so cool that their really considering it!
    I hope if they end up making Uglies into a film, its as good as the book, coz the books are FANTASTIC!!

  39. 39
    June 21st, 2009 08:58

    I understand what you mean, Remy. Obviously it’s going to lose something that it had from the books, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be enjoyable. I think most movies that were made from books are really good, even if they aren’t like the books. It’s ’cause their movies. Books and movies just can’t be the same. If you look at the movies just as movies, not as the books (which can be very hard), then they’re usually pretty good.

    I’m pretty nervous with you, though. Even if it’s a good movie, I’d be really mad if it was ruined from the books.

    I don’t think Dr. Cable should be played by Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie, or Tilda Swinton. I mean, taking the evil lady from other book-based movies is kinda lame if you ask me, and Jolie just doesn’t fit. Like Sydner, I kinda pictured Cable being a little younger than them, but not as young as Keira Knightley. I’m not very good at fantasy casting, so I don’t have anyone in mind, but I know I don’t like those four actresses for that part.

    CLICK MY NAME!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D

    June 21st, 2009 10:37

    Oh, I also want to say that, back in 06 when there were first words said on the subject of an Uglies movie, BEFORE Kristen Stewart became Isabella Swan, and when no one really did know her, I thought she would make an excellent Tally. I even remember coming across a fan made Uglies movie poster with her in the sunflower field in The Messengers. I fell in love with her as Tally. BEFORE TWILIGHT.

    To be honest, I was a little bummed that Twilight got her. Because I do agree she can’t be Tally now. It just wouldn’t work. She’s not unknown anymore. But I still think she’s an amazing actress and under different circumstances, would have been perfect for Tally.

    eva-la: yeahhhh, dr cable. the witch from narnia. she gives a very good mental picture as evil. one of the few faces i remember.
    colin-la: huh, well, kristen stewart…i just, she doesnt seem to hav a lot of like emotion. that sorta bothers me…
    anyway, i hope that hollywood does a good job on casting.

  49. 49
    June 21st, 2009 11:16

    yay, more time to type.
    sorry guys, that last comment wz a bit rushed.
    as i was saying…
    i think that the White Witch from Narnia would be awesome as Dr. Cable. u kno, cuz shes all, well, cold and sharp looking. i dont know, but she gives me the chills. they did an awesome makeup job.
    but kristen stewart…i saw her in 2 movies: Speak and Twilight, and if you’ve seen really good actresses, like Dakota Fanning, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, etc. They have a lot of feeling and emotions that actually suit the role. Kristen just looks sort of…haunted? depressed? i dont know…cuz i read twilight several times, and bella does not seem suicidal/depressed/hating the world. in the movie, even wen shes with edward she seems sad. and even though i havent read uglies in a couple of months, i dont remember tally as, particularily gloomy. no offense to u, kristen, if ur reading this. in some moments, u captured Melinda Sordino’s solitary feeling well.
    As scott said, I also hope that they dont cast someone completely gorgeous as tally or shay. and they better not switch actors for pretties, if there is a pretties movie.
    i heard that one of the people from the eragon movie bought the rights? hmmmm, eragon…well, theres no dragons in uglies, so there shouldnt be a problem with that.
    and have any of u ever been on the skylink in the dallas airport?
    its like, fake hoverboarding. its like a metrolink, but not as many ppl, and they hav wide turns. ok, i kno, im weird, but theres the air conditioning on and it feels like wind. writing that made me want to go on a roller coaster…knott’s…

    his name is Shane West

    he’s a great actor who isn’t too well known, but with his skills- he should be!

    i definetly agree that tilda swinton would be an awesome actress for dr. cable!
    i dont want the actresses that play tally, shay or david to be well known either, because that would ruin the movie for me if it was some girl from gossip girl or 90210. i also hope that they arent stick thin or almost anorexic looking, because in the book they make fun of the magazines with the skinny people in them.

    June 22nd, 2009 03:40

    i don’t think that DR.CABLE SHOULD BE THE SAME ACTRess as the narnia lady…i think that there is a caring part about dr cable, and no offense, but i don’t like that actress. she is a little bit tooo spooky to me. i read speak, well parts of it and never saw the movie, but it seems like that is the only role that kristen stewart is good for. i never read twilight-and i DO NOT intend to- but yeah, that’s a good point. and i really hope that the eragon ppl didn’t buy the rights!!!!! i LOVED the eragon book, but the movie was so awful that i practiclly cried!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my horse is lame, she has a HUGE cut, like half an inch deep, right on her fetlock joint. wich means that she may be unridable for the WHOLE summer!!! i know half(or more) of u don’t know what im talking about, but hey, if u do, congrats, if u dont, well then look it up(or not). im sorry, but im a little psyco tonight bacuz my best friend(boyfriend) just left for camp for 2 weeks without any phone or internet! he will miss out 3 week anniversary! what a great start to the summer.

    Movies never turn out like the books…unless the author works closely with the director and makes the vision that was in their head come to life for the fans. But not always. Stephenie Meyer did just that and look what happend there. *shudder*

    This is great. The Uglies series is just one of those sets that has me all abuzz with excitement, that kind just HAVE to be made into movies. Alot of books OUGHT to be made into movies, but sometimes to do so would be just wrong.
    These ones are debatable, because Tally changes throughout the series, at least in appearance. But you’d have to keep the actor the same throughout or it would just be weird.

    I agree that the major characters [Tally, Shay, David] should be the RIGHT AGE and/but NOT WELL KNOWN.

    Hmm…if they do make all three, it will be interesting to see what they do to show the effects of the operations [Ugly>>Pretty>>Special (>>Pretty/Ugly)].

  84. 84
    June 22nd, 2009 06:43

    Yes, SMeyer had a big part in making Twilight, In my opinion the movie turned out better then the book, it still sucked ass but it was better then Meyers crap. The actors played the characters spot on, emotionless and boring with a tad of creeppy pedo thrown in. They didn’t have much to go with from the start. Lets just admit it. Twilight is not a good book……AAAAA HARRY POTTER!!!….sorrey comercial just came on…..anywho……what was I talking about again?……oh ya…..Twilight sucks end of story…..I so wish That Tilda person wasn’t in Narnia first she would have made a perfect Dr. Cable….Nicole Kidman would still be good though….besides Golden compass was like nothing…people wouldn’t even notice.

    June 22nd, 2009 07:42

    June 22nd, 2009 07:49

    I think that it would be great to make the whole uglies series into a movie. I just hope it is better acting and better special effects than Twilight.(no offense twilight fans but come on) i fthey can do better I will see it but if they don’t make the series into a movie no big deal besides the book is ALWAYS better than the movie………

  87. 87
    June 22nd, 2009 08:26

    Okay, so in my mind they HAVE to make this movie. I know they don’t really have to, and realistically there’s quite a chance that they won’t, but they’ve just gotten some very devoted fans’ hopes up pretty darn high–well, at least mine.
    It’s awesome that they all seem so interested. All the discussions just making me feel like re-reading the series again…
    Honestly, I don’t think any of us can think of much more to add to that mile-long suggestion post.

    I have my fingers crossed for this movie! Uglies is one Of those books that just plays out like a movie In my head anyways, BUT it needs to be made with lots of time, accuracy, and care! It can NOT just be mashed up into a 1hour30min movie. That just wouldn’t do. Detail is very important, and I still have yet to see a movie that comes close to being as good, if not better, than the book itself. Let’s hope for the best ;)

    Also- Scott should play a huge role in creating the movie. What better way would there be for creating the perfect book to movie production? It would be amazing if he ended up writing the script!

  89. 89
    June 22nd, 2009 10:48

    I would watch one. Hopefully it would do well. Your books take place in a future with extreme cosmetic surgery. You would need expert makeup and costume designers along with some CG animation I’m sure. I’m looking forward to this possible movie! Good luck.

    June 22nd, 2009 12:19

    If I’m correct Fox Searchlight optioned it, no?
    (I almost said Satelight as in the animation studio in Japan, I’ve been watching too much Shugo Chara Doki xD)

    I just hope they don’t make it into the next Eragon (nuff said) or Golden Compass (what happened to the atheism? the ending of the book?). Or Twilight (though the book was awful to begin with…).

  93. 93
    June 22nd, 2009 18:41

    i agree with all of u on twilight! it was a terrible book, i didn’t even bother to go see the movie! i just REALLY pray that it doesn’t turn into the dark is rising(or the seeker), they just took the basic idea of the book, then changed every thing to make it more appealing to the teen audience, changed the name, and pretty much ruined it. so far, harry potter has been the closest to the books, and i think that the movies are so good becuz:
    1. The actors were the right age(or about that) when they started the movies, and you get to watch them grow just like the charachters
    2.the actors really portray the charachters well
    3. they don’t worry too much about squashing it in(well see when it gets into some of the huge books)
    4. animation is great
    5. great setting
    and i also know that J.K Rowling pretty much controlled the movie, scott-la, i hope that u know how to be assertive! because if you want uglies to be turned into a really good movie, i think that you are gonna have to step right in and make it happen.
    also make sure that they make alot of t-shirts, bags, computer games, et cetra et cetra.

    I have read two of your books recently, but I would like to read more, but they are not traduce into Spanish.

    I am waiting impatient to know how does the thriologhy Uglies ends.

  97. 97
    June 22nd, 2009 22:57

    The stunts for sure have to be good. As in like amazing!!

    Ping-la [says hi back] and pony-la are certainly right about some things. (although I loved Twilight… the movie did suck though) They are right about the fact that if too much is cut out of Uglies then the movie will suck. There’s no way a movie can be good if it doesn’t follow the book.

  98. 98
    June 23rd, 2009 00:14

    Ping-la [says hi back]: I read somehwre (IMDB maybe?) that they watered down Golden Compass to ease people in, and that if (not sure if they’re still doing it) they make the second one, it’s going to be more true to the book. :)

    I think you guys are forgetting the best book-turned-movie. LORD OF THE RINGS!!! I’ve never read the books (fantasy isn’t really my thing), but my friend is a huge LOTR fan, and she said that it was *really* close to the book, and that they only cut out a few scenes for time (considering how long it was, we should thank them for that). :D
    So, instead of saying “I hope it’s not as bad as…” let’s say, “I hope it’s as good as LOTR and Harry Potter.”

    June 23rd, 2009 03:57

    Pony-la: I know who this is….Kathryn! (Unless it’s someone who used the same name…then sorry) but if this is Kathryn, you don’t like Twilight, cause it was probably as big as Harry Potter, and you are the biggest Harry Potter fan I have ever met. Well, Sarah, likes both Harry Potter and Twilight…so do I. So, I don’t get why you can’t open up a little more. Like, maybe, stop saying stuff about it. You don’t have to like it, just don’t say stuff and I won’t say anything about Harry Potter.
    Anyways, back to the real subject here: I am so glad that Scott talked to them! I am soooo thankful, because he mentioned all of my points! YAY! Now I have complete confidence that this movie will be AH-MAZING!

    June 23rd, 2009 04:34

    you know just because someone says they don’t like the Twilight books doesn’t mean it’s because they are Harry Potter fans. Infact, that makes no sense at all. Some people don’t like the books because they are poorly writen. Some people hold high standards of books and Twilight just doesn’t meet them. Harry Potter, as we all know is a wonderful book that will be remembered and loved for years to come. Where as Twilight is just a fad that will die out in a few years. But I’m gald you said something. I was begining to wonder where all the Twi-hards had gone. For a while there we were all anti-Twilight. I was begining to think you all just left scott’s blog. That would have been a shame. You also give me a laugh. It’s fun arguing with Twilight fans :D

    Thank you for mentioning what us fans want! I really appericiate it! I wrote several comments and am personally thankful for all you are trying to do for us fans. I think you did well on telling the producers what WE want and I can’t wait for the movie to come out.

    (P.S. The angey mob of die-hard fans is growing so if anyone screws this up the consiquences will not be good! As the Specials say, “I don’t want to hurt you , but I will if I have to.”)

    June 23rd, 2009 09:30

    Okay, so Kristina-la: It’s pretty funny that you said that. My friends who hate Twilight don’t hate it because it was poorly written, they hate it because they are afraid that Twilight will be as big as Harry Potter, which i don’t know if it will be or not. I know that they are Harry Potter fans, and obviously you don’t know my friends, so you wouldn’t know whether they were or not. And as for Twilight dying out in a few years, what are you a fourtune teller to? Do you see the future? No, I don’t think so. So, why don’t we wait and let time do it’s thing. Nobody knows how things are going to end up, so don’t tell me or anybody else, that the future will end a certain way, because it may or may not.

    Oh and sorry Pony-la: I got confused. My friend is a huge horse fan, and you sounded like her, so I mixed you guys up! So sorry on that one! =[

  114. 114
    June 23rd, 2009 09:32

    June 23rd, 2009 09:33

    All this news has made me even more excited about the movie! It seems like the producers are genuinely understanding about how you want to set up this movie, and I love that they’re open to fan suggestions! Here’s hoping Uglies does make it to theaters.

    Please, please, PLEASE make sure the characters are played by people their ages, or at least people who look close to their ages. I’ve seen movies where actors are supposed to be playing teens and it’s cringe-worthy watching them try because they don’t look the age at all.

    I had read Maximum Ride as well and I think that it’s cool it’s going to be made into a movie too. However, I think that the progress for Maximum Ride is even faster than Uglies seeing that they had already gotten choosen the important people for this movie.

    See below for details:

    *Information taken from Wikipedia*

    James Patterson will be the executive producer. Avi Arad, one of the producers of Spider-Man, X-Men and other Marvel movies, will also produce alongside Steven Paul. In an interview with James Patterson, it was revealed that Arad has already planned out the first two movies. On August 7, 2008, it was announced that Columbia Pictures bought the screen rights to the franchise. Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) will direct the first movie, with Don Payne (Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer) writing the script. The movie is scheduled for a 2010 release. It was posted on the author’s site under Max’s Blog that Kristen Stewart (Female lead in Twilight) is likely to audition for Maximum, since director Catherine Hardwicke stated in an interview that she would be soliciting Stewart to audition for a role (though this does not mean she will definitely get the role).

    I am more excited about Uglies being made into a movie than Maximum Ride. in my opinion, the story for Maximum Ride isn’t as good as Uglies. It started to unravel as more books comes out. The story isn’t as solid as Uglies.

    To me Uglies is worth 4.5/5 stars while Maximum Ride is worth 3.5/stars. =D

    This is just my opinion. =P

    June 23rd, 2009 18:01

    u know what i just realized? even if scott-la writes the script, it all depends on how the actors portray the charachters, and what the directors do with the script. but having scott-la write the scropt would at least ensure they don’t squash or leave out important details…

    Emily-wa13- Have your friends read Twilight?
    If not I think you should tell them to read the book. Why you ask? Why is a anti telling someone to read the books? Well I think that no one should really say anything bad about something unless they have actually experienced it.(which is ironic because I really dont like to try new things, but in books I do)
    I have actually read Twilight and I didn’t like it. It’s not because it’s “getting” as popular as Harry Potter because thats deffinatly not why, but the last time I checked the Harry Potter series has sold over 400 million books, and JK Rowling is pretty much the richest person in England. Well anyway, reasons why I dislike Twilight: The Plot. Well truth be told, there really isn’t a plot at all. Through out the whole book, oh I’m sorrey for 300 pages it is ONLY about Bella saying how beautiful Edward is and how much she loves him. The plot only changes at the end when there is a little action that was built up, but then is made out to be nothing. Meyer likes to avoid action all together. Her plot is so shallow and not there that I just couldn’t get into it.
    Second reason why Twilight sucked is: anti-feminism. I’m sure most of you have herd at one point someone say that “SMeyer has set feminism back 100 years.” This is true. This book promotes girls being helpless and in need of a man at every second. It is pretty much saying that girls can’t do anything for themselves, that they are useless without their man. Bella is always getting her self into trouble. Not because she is “Clutzy” but because she has no intelligence what so ever. This book has made teenage girl think that they NEED a man like Edward to save them. This scares me because girls should want to stick up for themselves. If girls didn’t stick up for things we would not be where we are today.
    A big reason i really didn’t like the books is the characters. They are all flat and have no personallity. Meyer just doesn’t know how to make a well developed character. Lets start with the main character. Bella is a mary sue, plain and simple. We all know it. Just to re-cap a mary sue has no flaws(no being flawed does not mean being just clutzy)they are a wish-fulfillment of the author, the author favours the character too much(most believe Meyer thinks of bella as herself) and says how amazing the character is over and over again. A Mary Sue character is usually beautiful and smart. This character usually falls in love with the authors favourite characters and subs all the rest. A Mary sue is a whiney whimpy female character that can’t do anything but get herself into trouble that the romantic intrest has to save her from(sound like Bella yet?) A Mary sue is usually created by starting out authors(Meyer) I would Talk about Edward at this point but their are so many things wrong with him I don’t know where to begin.
    I’ll just finish with saying that watching someone sleep is not an act of love it’s just creepy and pedofilish. No one should think otherwise.

    ok just to say, i think that tilda swidman would not make a good special. to me she just looks like an old lady who has had too much plastic surgery. maybe, if they did an Artemis Fowl movie, she would be a good Opal whatever her name is. I think that Angelina Jolie(i think i spelled it right) would make a good Dr. Cable, becuse she can have such an evil thing about her, and cable is described as”a beautiful woman half transformed into a wolf”, and if you did some effects on her then she could look special.

  128. 128
    June 23rd, 2009 21:44

    June 23rd, 2009 21:46

    I do think one of the most important things is it to have “ugly” people playing the Uglies. That doesn’t mean I think people that look normal are ugly- it’s just the title. Give them spots, cuts and greasy hair! I think the whole movie would be a lie without this to begin with. It must be so great to talk to producers who wanna turn your book into a movie! Hopefully it all turns out well.

  130. 130
    June 23rd, 2009 22:21


    I totally agree with you! I used to love the Twilight books, but when I read the last one, I stopped and took a good look at the series. I think this book is only for a little time to read fluffy romance during a rainy day. Also, I worry for any girl that takes these books seriously.
    For example, who would ever want to be a mother at eighteen? Wouldn’t you like to wait a few years before committing the responsibilities of raising a child? SM put a bad example in the last book. I know Bella became a vampire (duh) and she could go back to college later on AND she was married, but it was still an improper example, which is why I recommend only to read this book only when you want to read boring romance. No offense to any people who enjoyed the series, but I just wanted to state my concern and opinion over this.

    Hi! I’m Rhianna Lee Dupla, I’m 13 and live in Hershey, PA.

    I read all of your books like 3 times and my fave is Specails! I reallly want to be a specail with non-human abilities! I love tally, and scaryly I look like tally exactly on the cover of Secails (except her face is flawless, I only have a few small tiny iny pimples<– Hardly noticible unless u have a close up LOL)

    Whenever you might get casting for specails (if u make the movie) I would love to cast for Tally! I feel as if our personalities are so much alike that it is almost as if you were thinking of me

    scary eh?

    BEst wishes and hugs and kisses

    I am so excited for these awesome books to be turned into a movie! They are so creative, I love reading them! Just make sure when auditions are being held, that everyone knows, because I would love to audition for the movies!

    Scott-la, I don’t know if you know the song Naive (by The Kooks, covered by Lily Allen, a version I like better) but it has the lyrics:

    How could this be done
    By such a smiling sweetheart
    Oh and your sweet and pretty face
    In such an ugly way, someone so beautiful…

    which hardcore reminds me of Uglies. Especially that last bit. Can you say Uglies movie soundtrack?

  140. 140
    June 24th, 2009 02:51

    oooohhhhhi t would need to have a REALLY good soundtrack!

    -Lizzy-wa OUT! :D

    “In other words, the story doesn’t have to get completely reshaped to fit the screen. (I doubt there will be any of this putting-all-three-books-into-one-movie crap.)”

    — that’s what they did in the Series Of Unfortunate Events. I hated it!!!!!!!!

    And if they DO make the Series Movies, I would probably like Pretties or Specials the best. Probably Pretties cuz I wanna see all the mischief of the floating ice rink haha!!!!!!

  142. 142
    June 24th, 2009 06:08

    OH! I forgot! You have to get the outfits right. Like dorm uniforms, The Smoke knitted kind of thing… etc. Oh, and like Lizzy-wa said: the soundtrack.

    June 24th, 2009 06:35

    Kristina-la: Yes they have. And you know what? You’re right. Twilight has no plot. Which is why I prefer Uglies over anything, basically. Uglies does have more action in it.
    Some of Meyer’s characters are shallow, but I don’t think that she infers through Bella, that girls don’t have flaws. One of the things you mentioned, is that a Mary Sue is beautiful and smart, correct? I support you on the whole smart thing. Yes Bella, is too smart, in my opinion, but as far as beauty, she has tons of flaws, so i wouldn’t exactly call her a Mary Sue. And, she has no confidence what so ever.
    And also, you said that Meyer infers that girls need a man right? i don’t think she infers that nessicarily. Yes, she infers that through Bella, but the whole story is a romance novel, so obviously that would be a main hookup for the characters falling in love. See where I’m coming from?
    You’ve made soem very good points, and I think, that so have I.
    So you see, we both agree that Twilight isn’t a very good book, okay? I started this whole thing, because I love to tease my friend. (Even though it turned out not to be her and I mixed her up with another girl. Oops haha.)

  144. 144
    June 24th, 2009 09:03

    lol nice. i wish my friends liked to read :(

    I just like to ask you one thing
    besides being clumsy, what flaws does Bella actually have?
    if you can name more then 10 that are pretty correct I will agree with you

    To Caitlin Ryser:

    Totally agree. I don’t think that Kristen Stewart is suitable for Max AT ALL. If she gets the role, she will just ruin the movie.

    To Kristina-la:

    Right on. I think that the people who actually love Twilight is due to the reason that they didn’t have read tons of book out there and they can’t compare Twilight with better books such as Uglies. =P

    To Colin-la:

    The lyrics seems incredibly fitting for Uglies movie. =P I will listen to the song when I reached home.*I am in school now.*

    can be please stop taking about twilight or anything else..besides supporting this possible movie?

    June 24th, 2009 15:29

    Wow, im so hyped for this to become a movie. I read this book when it first came out and recently i lent it to one of my friends, now it seems every girl in my grade is reading it. Haha, thanks for the update Scott, good to see you actually interact with your fans :)
    Looking forward to the movie :)

    June 24th, 2009 16:51

    I forced my friend Scott to read it. Weird I started calling him Scott-la just like you Scott-la! Then forced my friend Alyssa to read it. Started calling her Lissy-wa. Then forced all my friends to read it. Then I got it to be put in the library. Now most of the svhool has read it. All because my sister firced me to read it! Also if they make a Pretties movie when Tall and Zane take the pills and kiss the should play Breakfree. Also I think they should make there own songs for the Uglies movie. And Shays pigtails must be in there! Can’t wait for movie! Jaeda-la.

    June 24th, 2009 19:02

    Emily-wa: it’s ok that u thought i was someone else. i didn’t even understand the comment that you wrote about twilight being bigger than harry potter or whatever! im not easily offended, most horse people aren’t. becuz in the horse world, everyone has their own opinions and ways, and everyone thinks that their opinions are the one and only correct ones in the universe. So as a kid growing up in this world, im pretty used to people saying things about how you are wrong, they are right, and that you are absolutely terrible for doing the”wrong thing”. Just to let you animal lovers know, the vet came and saw that she had an even bigger cut across the sole of her hoof, he wrabbed up her hoof in a huge”bootie”. my mom moved her to a safer barn, where it is less muddy in the fields and she doesn’t have to be cooped up in the little run in shed. we think that she got cut on a piece of glass in an old creek in her field, or cut up on some sharp piece of farm junk in her fields. im sorry to rant on about this…

    June 24th, 2009 19:04

    ooh! when they are tally and zane are stuck in zane’s room during the rain, they should play Halo by beyonce.

    June 24th, 2009 20:06

    I have one thing to say PLEASES DONT MAKE IT REALY GIRLY!!! because im a guy and i know its from a girls point of veiw but dont make it a chick flick then i would be super mad. Tats all i have to say oh and also

    (and tally)

  152. 152
    June 24th, 2009 20:09

    Actually, which company/ studio is the movie being optioned to?

    But anyway off topic:

    Does anyone else happen to find the book title amusing? Because when I passed by it in the bookshop, all I could think of was Uglies.

  153. 153
    June 24th, 2009 20:30

    Great so everything’s set i’m sure you have a lot of money from the book and the special effects take time so i shouldn’t hold my breath. Can’t wait though!

  154. 154
    June 24th, 2009 20:53

    I read that book and though it “The pretty comitee strikes back” has nothing to do with Uglies it has alot of the same concepts like be who you are and don’t change just for your friends and all that good moral stuff.

  155. 155
    June 24th, 2009 21:01

    I am so excited they are thinking of making the uglies series into movies. It sounds like if they go ahead with it they are going to do a good job of it since they took the time to listen to you and hear what the fans had to say. I’m sure the movies would do great at the box office.

  156. 156
    June 24th, 2009 21:30

    I agree with Pony-la on Angelina Jolie being Dr.Cable. Cuz she has this dark beauty that would match on Dr.Cable. Also, maybe Steven Strait (THE COVENANT) could play David? IDK thats just the person that kinda looked like David to me!

  157. 157
    June 24th, 2009 21:32

    There are some other good suggestions to the cast at

  158. 158
    June 24th, 2009 22:30

    To the people talking about Maximum Ride (sorry, can’t remember all your names): Kristin Stewert could have played Max around the time of Zathura, but now she’s too old. I have no idea who could play Max now. I really hope Hardwick doesn’t screw up the movie!!!

    UglieForLife: I totally agree with you! I would be sooo upset if it was turned into a chick flick!!! Chick flicks = BLEH!!!

  159. 159
    June 24th, 2009 23:24

    yes chick flicks suck….well the really bad ones anyway….some are tolerable.

    !!!!!!I saaw Transformers today!!!!!……SO GOOD!

  160. 160
    June 24th, 2009 23:38

    OH MY GOSH! IM SO EXCITED!! I can’t wait to see it……………………………… (Sorry, but i think Zane should be Robert Patterson) :D :D :D :D :D :D I CANT WAIT!!! :D Im almost done with specials, so….. :D

  161. 161
    June 25th, 2009 00:50

    i LOVE this series. i was about to call it a trilogy but then i remembered Extras was added. i’m sooooooo excited b/c i loved all your books and Uglies was amazing! oh and don’t listen to Ant-la!!! please, the last thing we need is an ugly guy (robert p.) to be a pretty. that wouldn’t make sense. any way i love all your books!! the only one i havent read is the risen empire but i cant find it anywhere.

  162. 162
    June 25th, 2009 01:43

    Kristina-la: 1. Attitude. I’m not sure if this counts, but you might realize that Bella is a brat. She’s got such a crappy attitude and judges people harshly. 2. Her appearance. She’s always describing herself, and how she’s not beautiful at all. (Although she does become beautiful when she turns into a vampire but that doesn’t count) 3. She’s a clean freak. I don’t know if you remember, but there is one point in the book where she is being impatient, so she cleans the whole house, and makes sure she gets practically every spot. 4. She makes people feel self-confident for the wrong reasons. For instance, she’s always giving Mike the impression that he might have a chance with her. Same for Jacob when she’s pretending to flirt with him. He thinks that there might be something between them, even though there isn’t(at first). 5. She lies. She lied to her mother about wanting to move to Forks. She lied about going to Jacksonville or Seattle(I don’t remember which) the weekend of the spring dance. 6. She’s always trying to take care of everybody else around her, even if they don’t need to be taken care of. She’s young and she doesn’t have to take on full responsibilty at her age. 7. She’s selfish. When she wants to be a vampire, she only thinks about what she wants. She doesn’t think about how much it would hurt Edward, or how much Charlie or Renee would miss her. Or Jacob. 8. She’s horrible at sports. That’s a main one. I mean being bad at sports isn’t a bad thing, but I consider it a flaw about Bella. 9. She doesn’t really like to try new things. I know that’s a personality thing, but if you think about it, Alice is always trying to dress her up, and Bella won’t even willingly try changing up her look for once. 10. She’s a whiney brat. If she doesn’t get what she wants, she whines to get self-pity for her.

    So you see, Bella is not a Mary Sue.

    Pony-la: Thanks for being so understanding.

    Marisol: I totally agree with you!

    Robert Pattison would
    kill the movie…hes already to
    famous for (twilight)
    and yes i agree wit Scott
    dat ther should be new
    actors for the movie and the
    setting is very important to. (=
    but i hav someone perfect for Zane
    im(serious) >>>Matt Lanter<<<, he is kind of a new actor but he has the perfect look for Zane. soo Zane Fans
    go google him r somethin and
    tell me wat u think.

    TEAM ZANE!! <3

  164. 164
    June 25th, 2009 01:45

    I personally think they should cast new actors/actresses for the movie… Like people who have never been in a movie before. (obviously there would be many auditions going on… but still.) It would be a good oportunity for people to get a start =)

    I’ve been looking for casting calls in my area for a LONG TIME and haven’t found any =(

  165. 165
    June 25th, 2009 01:47

    I don’t think Matt Lanter would be right… His features are too… well, round =P

  166. 166
    June 25th, 2009 01:49

    oh ONE more thing yes
    Angelina Jolie would make a
    really good Dr.Cable or i was
    also thinkin about Megan Fox
    or the terminator girl from
    the third movie idk wats her name
    so ya….haha anywayz the cast for the other characters..i dont know haha

  167. 167
    June 25th, 2009 01:50

    1- 1&10 are the same things D=<
    2- Wouldn’t you do the same things if you were in her position? If you loved a person wouldn’t you do everything in your power to be with them? If your attitude was “stubborn,” could you /really/ do anything to stop it?

  168. 168
    June 25th, 2009 01:51

    Haha Angelina Jolie would make a REALLY good Dr. Cable =D

  169. 169
    June 25th, 2009 01:52

    Producers actually listening and agreeing with the author? Quite promising.

    I’ve been waiting years for news of the actual movie progress to be made- instead of sitting around with a circle of friends dreaming up actors and cutting and splicing scenes from other movies together. Even if they don’t make it into a movie, at least I’ll know that there was, at one time, a glimmer of hope. If it becomes a movie, I’m definitely going to show up. I mean, read all of the books and not make an attempt to see the movie? Lame. Just. Lame.

    And I see a lot of arguing about Twilight going on in the comments. . . . . . Guys, let it die. Twilight isn’t even worth fighting over.

    June 25th, 2009 01:52

    people dont forget that Zane NEEDS to have black hair
    no blondies(although I do like them blond) or brown….thats David

  171. 171
    June 25th, 2009 01:54

    Kristina-la: Very true… we should take that into consideration =)

    June 25th, 2009 01:57

    Random question?
    Was Shay ever given a last name? O.o
    I have to go look through Uglies for it…

  173. 173

    Twilight changed your life? How so?

  174. 174

    “Her name was Shay.” Real specific

  175. 175
    June 25th, 2009 01:59

    Emily- I’ll give you some of those because I do think that about her….but I think that is just how we see her and not how Meyer wanted her to be like.

    first of all #2 She was always beautiful, she was just too retarted to figure that out.

    #3 being a clean flreak is not really a flaw…its a personallity trait that could get annoying…so what your really saying is that shes annoying.

    #4 I really dont agree with this one. Its not a flaw. Its a trait that Meyer made “trying” to make Bella seem like the perfect helpful girl, but it backfired and made her seem, once again annoying.

    #5 being horrible at sports is not a flaw. Being good a sports is a gift. So if someone is bad at them, they just wern’t given that specific gift. Its not a flaw.

    but yes I’ll give you a couple of those because I thought that from the begining too.

  176. 176
    June 25th, 2009 02:01

    Twilight changed your life? How so?
    I now look at life and love in a different way… It was strage, how hooked I was on the books, even though I knew I shouldn’t have been… I read New Moon cover-to-cover in less than 12 hours… I respect the feeling that was between them, even though it was fictional. I respect love more, and I think it made me feel a bit lonely =P I’ve never had a boyfriend =P

  177. 177
    June 25th, 2009 02:02

    I am so excited for this new movie!and i think william mosley would be great for david except that he has blonde hair :(and ya twilight characters are NOT for uglies…they are for twilight only.that is that .and i do think tilda swinton would be good for dr.cable.and for tally i think the girl on the cover of uglies would be good.and the one who played tally in the uglies teaser trailor would be good to.but i dont really care who plays who as long as they do a good job and the effects arent cheesey…well i sorta do care but as long as its good lol.

  182. 182
    June 25th, 2009 03:01

    What I believe I said was that people should read the books before they say that they dislike them because then they would have a better argument. then I said something like “which is Ironic because I dont like to try new things”
    I know that I dont like to try new things and know that it is a bad quality to have, but it’s the way I am.(but I was mainly talking about food when I said that)
    I dont even think that that is a quality that Bella has to begin with. I wasn’t the one to mention that.Emily did. Before you try to come and sound all smart and make fun of someone to make yourself feel better check ALL the facts first.

  183. 183
    June 25th, 2009 03:02

    Well, I actually saw this post yesterday after going on youtube to watch fan-made Uglies movies. I like reading comments on the bottom of the pages so when I looked @ one I saw that people were saying that there’s an actual Uglies movie comming out. That of course, sent me spiraling out on the Google pages searching until finally about 30 more or less minutes later I found a link to here. ( Which made me feel not-so-smart because I didn’t think to come to this website first! )
    But anyway considering that the UGLIES is my new novel obbsession, ( Read all of the books since I think April counting all the days that made me wait @ the library.) I am so super phyced 4 the possibility movie that I DREAMED about playing Tally. ( But in real life I’m too young… sigh) On the bright side though, I got to hoverboard! LOL! So to all the movie producers I say….
    1. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make it realistic ( nothing like the Jacob wolf thing on the new moon trailer because that is some sad graphics. *shudders* no offence)
    2. I know I speak for 99.9% of everyone here when I say no Disney
    3. also, don’t let the sometimes evil clutches of Hollywood take down a book/ movie with great potential!
    ( sorry that these requests and comments don’t make much sense. I’ve been on my (new) computer alot today & I’ve had 5 hours of volleyball camp today)
    Bottom line.. Make the movie great. Make it live up to the expectations of the fans. We love uglies and want the best for our beloved series. don’t let us down! I love (but not litterally LOVE) you forever Scott-la for posting this! Maybe I might get my shot of fame for this. and if not… eithr way It’ll probably be a gr8 movie!

    - Rachel-la G.

    (P.S)Sara-la: I thought the same ” Shay last name question ” yesterday! Thanks 4 sayin that cause I recomended Uglies to my friend’s mom and could’nt look it up.

    matt long: I was born in missouri ( St. Louis) small world huh?

    P.S.S. if you guys want to watch the fake trailer I watched go to youtube and search” Uglies teaser trailer” and you will be amazed! I lost count of how many times I watched it after 7.LOL. I got my mom to watch it and now she wants to read the book! yay! Also to the few people this concerns… please watch your language.

    Sorry to this insanely long post but if you guys could have open auditions in Atlanta GA? I live a couple hours away but I would be eternally grateful if that would happen.
    To whoever said something about not being able to find any open auditions near their home NEVER go to John Robert Powers they are ginormus liars!

    Well, hopefully you read (or are going to read) my post soon so bye! P.S.S.S. Thanks U agian Scott-la! you are now my favorite YA author! I went to your wife’s site ( not to sound stalky) but I have got to find her Getting Rid of your Fairy book or something any way i hope this posts so Peace Out!

    I’m going to try and link the video I was talking about:

    Hopefully this showed up as a link. If not, just type it up in the little address bar thing or go to youtube, search for Uglies Teaser trailer and click on the very first video that shows up. ( the picture that shows up on the side should be a bunch of “pretties” peering over the side of a balcony.

    ( this is another suggestion to the movie producer people I highly recomend 2 watch)

    Rachel rating: 999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999 starz!!!
    (I don’t know if there’s such a number but I don’t care!)

    ( I do know I do a bunch of parenthacees though…)

    Anyway watch the vid and I’ll check back tomarrow cause my hand really hurts from all this typing

    Cee ya!

    P.S. yet again to Scott-la
    I assume that you keep track of all your fans email. Just a little heads up if you ever get to my notice is that this is my parent’s email not mine. Thanks for your understanding and for posting this ! Meanwhile me and your other adoring fans will be anxiously awaiting your next post.

    P.S.2.CRAZYLY.OBSESD.FNS.LKE.ME. Since I’m done with Uglies I need new fabulous Scott-la books to read! I’m dyin here!

    What do y’all think? Midnighters (everyone says they’re good.) or PEEPS? ( crazy twilight fan. though I wish everyone would stop comparing the two books. )
    Right now i’m reading Gone With the Wind ( fat chance I’ll ever finish but I’m gonna try.)
    Now, since no one is here responding I’m going to soothe my anziety and emotional pain from not having movie info posted by watching the Uglies teaser trailer and Fred videos for the ( insert very large number here)nth time. Either that, or reread thi weeks TIME magazine! bye

    Stephanie Meyer – 0

    June 25th, 2009 07:00

    When the movie finally comes out one day, i will probably see it at least 20 times in the theatre…YAY..i already know that it’s gonna be amazing because the books were!!!! ok I may be a tad hyper right now! :)

  192. 192
    June 25th, 2009 07:03

    Oh and Rachel-wa G. the midnighter books are really good, so you should definatly read those!!! Hey they should make midnighters movie. Yeah but read them!

  193. 193
    June 25th, 2009 07:14

    Ok this is like my third comment in a row but i had an idea for movie or movies….ok so i know that a lot of people think the actors should change between movies cause you know they become pretty then special but i think the actors should stay the same you know just maybe put pretty or scary makeup on them or something its just my opinion ummmm i know this isnt exactly for this movie but its just a thought….you can never be to prepared..ok bye.

    oh also i think all of the future actors should read the book so that they truly understand the characters and the whole story!!

    ok i think that was my last thought..bye again :)

    i am soo hopeing they wont mess this movie up and make it totally differant then the way it is…it stinks when they do that.and i agree with nichole-la they should make the actors read the again like nichole-la said they’d understand the character more.

    And Scott,Please Please Please Please Please write a new book for the uglies series PLEASE!You said you were going to write a trilogy but you wrote why not write five?And hey dont you want to out do stephane myers and JK RAWLINGS?!seriously all of your fans are DYING for you to write a new book so…PLEASE?

    This movie has me all excited and waiting for it to come out. If you go to youtube and look at what the fans can do with clips imagine what movie producers do. Please for the sake of the fans do not cut the movie short, I mean look at the Lord of the Ring movies, they never ended but there would be so much going on that the viewers wouldnt even notice the time passing. Also do some open casting because even though the auditioners dont have agents they can still have a bunch of talent. Hey if I had to fly somewhere to auditon i Probly would. Also make the movie fit in with the time like the hovercars should look like hovercars not spaceships or auto mobiles. Once again this movie has me bubbly but when I hear it come out that bubbly will sure turn into icy for sure.

    Scott listen to britt-la I need another book to the series. I actually have an idea if you want but I am not a writer at all so feel free to ask. It coulod work with how you put together all of the other books. PLZ just think about it.

    the movies should have:

    1.actors that are the age of the book characters NOT some mid-twenty year old

    2. Amazing scenary

    3. the actors have to have the SAME LOOK as the book characters

    4. DON’T make the movie a GIRLY thing, so boys can be into it aswell.

    5. the slang. (bubbly and bogus)

    I agree with all the people who said that Tally and Shay shouldn’t be beautiful. I mean, think about it? The whole point of Uglies is that in the future, people think that REGULAR is ugly! I agree that they should be unknowns! I also agree that the actors should be the age of the characters, like uglies(2 comments above me) said.

  202. 202
    June 25th, 2009 21:43

    It is very important that when you describe in the book you know how they call Tally Squint and Shay skinny well the uglie’s nicknames have to fit them so in the movie Tally should squint a lot but not randomly

  203. 203
    June 25th, 2009 22:21

    I agree with Carol-wa. The nicknames should play a part. I also don’t really think Peris should have any bigger part in the movie than he did in the book.

But now, PLEASE NOT ROBERT P.!!!!111 the last thing we need is some creepo, emothoinless vampire dude to play the part of a sparky, lively,*beautiful*, and smart. I think that zac efron would be a good zane. and do not say that he is a disney channel star, because here are movies that aren’t disney that he was in:
    * Hairspray
    *17 Again
    * The derby Stallion(when he was like 13)
    *SNL multiple times
    *Miracle run
    *CSI Miami
    and alot more that i had no clue what they were…. ZAC EFRON FOR ZANE!

  206. 206
    June 25th, 2009 22:40

    OH YEHA! so if they start saying”oh let’s make it a comedy to appeal to the teen audience”, tell them that they should make it like pirates of the carribean, where it was mostly action/adventure, with a few little jokes thrown in. well, that’s how uglies books were, so that’s how they should make the movie.

    I think this blog is dedicated to Scott so the evil vampires should not be mentioned. i think its a good point matching actors with their nicknames and SHAY (omg fav character) her pigtails. and megan fox is like a natural pretty =P. The teaser vid is amazing too, the girl at/near the end of the vid looks like a perfect (pretty) shay, to me anyways =). Gratz Scott-la

    wow im should probably say everything in one comment but i keep thinking and have new ideas

    first. i think zac efron would only make a good peris or some little part
    second. why couldn’t the girl scott-la used on his cover be tally??? is she too old???
    third. i think a book based around a time like pre-tally. like dr.cable’s rise to head of Spec.Circ and Maddy and Az descovering the lesions n their love ^.^ n DAVIDS SCAR!!! (isn’t he older than tally) idk

    I don’t think Robert Pattinson would make a good Zane, but he IS an all around better actor than Zac Efron times like a MILLION. He just acted in a stupid movie, that’s all. I loved him in Harry Potter. I shall search for the right Zane!

    If they end up making all three movies, they should do a fourth one about Extras. I was a little bit disappointed that Tally-wa and Shay-la didn’t have as big parts as the other books, but I don’t think Aya-chan should get left out!

    One thing that needs to be emphasized, in the movie, is the depth of everything in the book. All of the meanings and undertones about corrupt society as well as Tally and Shay’s characters. Even though all of the special effects and plot are *very* to the books, the undertones make the books deeper than skin/page, which drew me -and probably other people as well- to read farther than ‘Uglies’.

    Yes I have changed my name! (formerly Rachel-wa G.)

    I thought of a better one. Hopefully, my comments will be a little more intellegent tonight… (though I DID just come back from the waterpark on the far side of town…) first things first, on my incredibly long post, pings to all my new bubbly cyberfriends!!!!!

    Ping to Amy~la: (It took me a couple of seconds to find the squiggly line) thanks bunches 4 the suggestion! It helped me bunches! Are u a twilight fan? I see so many disputes here! Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think u were in some but I’m just to lazy to read through the comments! LOL!

    Ping to Sarah-la: I’m just wondering what problem you are talkin about I have many problems here (see comments # 185, 186 & 187 to refresh your memory) I also have many other problems that I will probably list in the future but still…

    Ping to Julia-wa: The scoreboard’s bubbly but, I’m gonna fix it 4 ya…

    Scott-la: 10

    Stephenie Ificouldscratchhernameoutiwould Meyer: 0

    S.M, if you’re reading this, it’s not that I don’t love your books, it’s just that twilight’s being overthrown by the Next Big Novel… oh well 4 u SM…..

    Ping to Nicole-la: thanks to you to 4 the Midnighters comment! I’ll probably agree with the movie deal once the first page draws me in either way, which ever book I read first I’ll still cherish Scott-la’s books!!!!

    Pony-la I totes agree w/u on the concept of twitter. shouldn’t you have a right to type over 146 characters? (if i wuz on twitter right now,) even though i don’t own a twitter and never will for multiple reasons. ( i would be exceeding 146 characters .)
    Also, whos fault was it when ur ipod got washed in the washing machine? ( I feel your pain, my mom dropped my old one on the sidewalk…hahaha sorry spongebob just came on the one when he becomes “normal” anyway, thankfully she bought me a new one her name is Maria #2.

    Ping to anonymous-la lolz: Thanks for watching the vid anonymous-la lolz!! The pre Tally book is by far the bubbliest non Scott-la ideaever!!!

    And to all of y’all who haven’t watched The Best Uglies Trailer Ever i’ve reposted the link here:

    And for those of you who have watched it, leave me a comment saying you have. also for those of you who have watched it and declared it not-icy-making, u have some serious lesions in that bubblehead brain of yours… (slight offence intended)

    Random Ramblings Ping to Sarah-la: comment 217: want to know what’s weird? I imagined myself as Tally in the book (another problem I have, I always have to find some character in the book and then imagine myself asthat character. helps me get inside their mind and feel their emotions. Sometimes this is good, others, not so much…) Even though yesterday I said I was too young, my mega tallness makes up for my age. ( 5 foot 7in.!) My mom wouldn’t let me get forehead bangs though (volleyball) all I have are these wispy little side bangs that don’t evenshow… I think i kinda look like Tally too except her hair is a bit lighter than mine.

    About the Extras movie I hope they make one! I always had such a hard time imagining all the crazy-surge!

    To everybody: AH! I’m excited for the uglies movie! I’m really worried about their casting though. Who knows how close they’re going to get to the characters. Although, a lot of people here are concered about Zane. But, remember that Zane doesn’t come in until the second book, so I don’t think we have to worry about him until close to the second movie. But I don’t know.

    Stuff they NEED on the Uglies movie and if they don’t add it the consequences will be world-wrecking!!! (Oil Bug world wrecking to be exact.) Feel free to add on to the list loyal fans!!!

    1. The sky needs to look like salmon colored cat vomit when Tally sneaks of to see Peris. Because that first sentence automaticly makes you read the book.

    2. Two words: pig mask

    3. the roller coaster/hoverboard ride.

    4. Shay’s crudely written note ( mabe it could be written in the actress’ non-dominant hand unless that is, if they write with both hands. If that’s the case just let a little kid do it cause little kids aren’t the best handwriters.

    Good point, Ajane. I was wondering that myself.

    I’d think they’d keep the same actress and make-up her up a bit, or down for the first one. I assume they’d add lifts in her shoes as she grows taller.

    Make-up is a curious thing, it could definitely make an Ugly pretty, then Special.

    June 26th, 2009 09:06

    Also, I really don’t think that anyone famous should be in the movie. It should be like Harry Potter and the way they cast these kids who’ve never done movies before, but it was SO CLEAR that they had talent.

    I think that a new movie like this is a great opportunity for many qualified, unknown actresses and actors everywhere to get a chance to do what they want to do.

    Wow, you’re asking the fans’ opinions? That is so bubbly! If only more book-to-movie franchises did the same thing…

    I think you should write the screenplay yourself to keep it as natural as possible.

    The actors need to be the same age as and look the same as the book characters. And they should all (with the exception of Dr Cable) be unknowns. David needs to have serious charisma, Shay and Zane should have a bit of a wild, haggard look to them, and Tally needs Tally-ness.

    Have you ever thought about making any of the characters black?

    My personal opinion is that if the auditions are open, there should be some in regional Western Australia so I can go lol. (I actually remember messing around and acting out bits of Uglies to myself cause it was so cool! Uglies IS already a movie.)

    Speaking of Australia in general, I always imagined Uglies to be set in a reasonably bushy (but still red-dirt-y) part of Australia. I think it fits, but I might just be overly patriotic.

    Because the books are about imperfection, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I am BEGGING you to try and convince the Hollywood people that the actors don’t need to have perfect skin and hair in every shot. Make up for the lack of ‘perfection’ with flawless directing and amazing scenery so that it still looks ultra-professional and ‘Cable-world’.

    Also, try to use as little CGI as possible. Cause on some level, it still all looks fake. And even though they’re inhabiting a ‘fake’ world, this isn’t really a great way to portray it.

    I cannot WAIT for the movie! (And I’m really looking forward to seeing the hoverboards and the Rusty Ruins!)

I’ve always wanted to go there! Have you met Scott-la or seen him speak in person? Good thinking about the placement of Tally’s City. (or The Smoke either one would be great!) Australia is pretty much terrain so once you would get way out there, the only thing you would have to worry about are all the cute little kangaroos hopping around.

Boo hoo no more Thriller or Beat It or Mommy kissing santa claus. :( That was the bogus-making part of my day. But hopefully, he’s in clebrity Heaven along with the Charlies angel woman.

    Emily- I totally didn’t mean to make you seem like the bad guy :P
    When I was writing that I wrote it like 10 different ways because I couldn’t get it to sound right. but I left it the way it was because I didn’t want to ramble on about my “challenge” to you. But ya didn’t mean it like that.

    Wow I havn’t been on in like 2 days and their are like 100 comments between my last one!

    Thanks Sarah-la! Good idea with the minimization. I saved westerblog to open up when I come on the internet but I always have to scroll down the page to look for my comments. This way will make it hassle free! :)

    Hey I just came up with an idea! It kinda seems stupid, but we could make up Shay, David, and all the other characters names.

    I’m like super bubbly/happy cause my new Chuck Taylors just came in the mail! :) They’re plain black high-tops but still. :) Plus, I’m done with my chores and my friend might invite me to go swimming. It’s a good thing to do to beat the southern heat!

    June 26th, 2009 23:21

    Ping to Nicole-la: (see comment 260) Maybe that’s why there should be casting calls to find Tally.

    Ping to everyone: I know that 99.99% of us bloggers dispise Disney, (not to mention Zac Efron) *the OTHER Tally Youngblood represses a shudder.* but even though this is a long way off but I just thought of a guy who could play Zane: that Ed-cam dude on princess protection program but he might be too old by the time Pretties comes out if there is to be a movie. He seems like a good enough (and unknown) actor from all the commercials.

    I also just had an idea for a song. They could play Emergency by: Paramore. It seems pretty fast paced to me. The lyrics may be in question to some, but I’m going to use this song when I have the time to make a teaser trailer of my own. Speaking of teaser trailers, I still don’t see any video comments. Y’all must REALLY want Shay to pelt you with glitter bomb sneack attacks…
    ( see comments 234 and 186. )

    Here’s the link to listen to it for those of you who aren’t familiar with the band and its work.

    Ping to movie producer people: listening to the song applies to you too. :) Please think about putting it on the Soundtrack!

    Haha… I’d love to see some of us *shifty eyes* get pelted with Shay’s glitter-bombs… It’d be funny :D One of the other things I’d like to see out of an Extras movie would be the tech-head bashes! I wouldn’t mind sneaking in as a bomber and crashing it!!

    June 27th, 2009 02:57

    i wz watching ncis earlier and it was this one episode called model behavior. there wz this one model that looked like she could be tally or shay for pretties. but she mighte be too old…she was really pretty tho, with makeup at least. its really surprising how a lot of celebrities dont actually look that good w/o makeup. like i went on that one site from bogus to bubbly, by this doctor dude…and the contestants for miss germany were really not all that gorgeous. there are ppl in my class prettier than her!
    i guess its their publicists that do all the dirty work. for some reason i just pictured tony dinozzo from ncis as him. haha, again, too old. im not sure angelina jolie would make a good dr cable tho…shes…tooo, ummmmm wellll u kno. shes pretty but i just imagined dr cable–not like her.
    im still opting for that narnia witch as cable tho. i think she could look a little nice cuz shes an actress.
    ping to dan: DEFINITELY! itd b so funny if the cast got drunk! *wicked look* and post it as special features or something. huh? yea?

    i think that either

    a. emily browning
    b. the girl from the cover of uglies

    should b tally

    emily osment
    anna maria de perez de tagle
    should b shay

    thanks for answering my question haley.
    also i think nicole kidman could pull it off, she’s a good actress
    and i’d have to agree that they should find some unknown actors because i’m tired of seeing the same five people in all the movies. i’m just saying

  285. 285

    June 27th, 2009 06:38

    i agree with
    Haley Raeon
    “Also, I really don’t think that anyone famous should be in the movie. It should be like Harry Potter and the way they cast these kids who’ve never done movies before, but it was SO CLEAR that they had talent.” ACTORS THAT ARE THE CHARACTERS AGE NOT SOME WERID TWENTY YEAR OLD TRYING TO PLAY A TEENAGER AND SHOULD BE NORAML LOOKING

    and also agree with the other tally youngblood
    1The sky needs to look like salmon colored cat vomit when Tally sneaks of to see Peris. Because that first sentence automaticly makes you read the book.
    2. Two words: pig mask
    3. the roller coaster/hoverboard ride.
    4. Shay’s crudely written note ( mabe it could be written in the actress’ non-dominant hand unless that is, if they write with both hands. If that’s the case just let a little kid do it cause little kids aren’t the best handwriters.

    OH MY GOSH! i can’t believe we all forgot quotes from the book!!

    whoever says that the actors should be unknown it totally right. seeing famous people would kill the whole movie for me. But for open auditions they should go to different states, its annoying to see that you have to go to LA or some big city to audition. or set up a website so people can send in pictures and stuff like that.

    “What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.”
    scott, u should put uglies quotes on your site!
    cuz i think we forgot some of them.
    i dont think Uglies should be made R rated, cuz then a lot of people wouldn’t be able to see it. (like my frnd julia).
    pg13 though, should be your guys’ goal. not too disney, but not too idk…The Strangers either. dont watch the strangers its a stupid movie. uglies has to be better.
    or else.
    if you guys get miley cyrus or the jonas brothers into this movie, soundtrack, or others. my friends and i will probably boycott it.
    but, MCR, Fall out boy, The All American Rejects, or stuff like that should be in the movie.
    pleeseee dont let disney kill this one.
    im sry, disney is disney. sci fi is sci fi.

    June 27th, 2009 07:59

    Best. News. Ever.

    Methinks you got some pretty awesome producers lined up, Scotty.

    Okay, the open auditions thing sounds comforting. Even if it’s not a promise, because what with so many fans around, I think it’d be interesting to see so many people come forth and audition for their favorite character as though on invitation. I’d certainly try for Shay if there was ever a possibility. (xD Albeit, I’d fail miserably most likely, but it still sounds like tons of fun.)

    …A producer that’s READ Bogus to Bubbly? This is treading onto unknown and dangerous territory. I like itttt! Smart, smart producer. And very good idea, actually, to use a Guide to Uglies as, well, a guide.

    But yes, I still think setting and plot are my biggest concerns. A three-for-one sounds disappointing, as A Series of Unfortunate Events ended up being in movie format. These books mean so much to so many people, and I have a feeling that optioning it would eventually go well with some willing group, if not the first one.

    And yes, I was so out of it when I last commented on your previous post that I didn’t even realize the most disappointing aspect of putting some gorgeous and famous actress in a role like Tally or Shay: ruins the whole point. Yes. I was more distraught over the fact that many famous actresses and actors actually, in fact, do not do much to actually practice their acting abilities (some, I would say, have no abilities at all). But yeah, that would just…yeah, wow. No need to get the operation if the entire cast is filled with Natural-Born Pretties.

    In any case, congratulations on a highly promising phone call, Scott-la! This all sounds too bubbly for words.


  297. 297
    June 27th, 2009 08:03

    I agree with everything everyone has said so far.
    I really do hope they used unknowns for Tally and Shay maybe even David, I don’t know.
    I just can’t wait for this movie; I wish time would just hurry the hell up, haha
    Ohhh, I agree 100% with the OTHER Tally Youngblood about Emergency by Paramore.
    I am a huge fan of there’s and Emergency would fit well I think too.

    Congratulations Scott, the movie will be a hit, no doubt about it!

  298. 298
    June 27th, 2009 08:15

    I think if they make it a movie, Sigourney Weaver would make an great Dr. Cable(but that may just be my crazy brain…)!!!!

    June 27th, 2009 08:16

    I am really excited about this movie! I will probably come back to this website every day now and see if there is a new post about casting. I would really like to audition for the part of Shay. Well keep us updated and PLEASE tell us right away when there are open casting calls.

    Thank you for writing these wonderful books!

    June 27th, 2009 09:11

    Haley Rae
    June 27th, 2009 09:21

    Stephanie, none of the characters can be black unless they were an Ugly, and even then that could be controversial, because one of the main points of the operation is that everyone had the same skin color so that nobody fought about it like they did in the Rusty days. I think that was mentioned in Uglies, when Tally and Shay are working on Shay’s face on the wallscreen.

  303. 303
    Haley Rae
    June 27th, 2009 09:22

    Also, I think that some great music should be in the movie. And to keep it as non-controversial as possible, it should be from unknown bands that, again, need a kick into the real world. Just like the actors, the bands should be unknown. It should be very clear they have talent, and the music should fit the theme of the movie and each scene, sure, but the more unknown the band, the better.

  304. 304
    June 27th, 2009 09:29

    Ping to Haley Rae:
    That’s true… the skin color thing. They are all meant to be the same, and it is never mentioned (I don’t think) about skin color at all until they get to Diego in Specials.

    6. Tally’s Best Friend scar

    7. chicken and rabbit pen in The Smoke

    8. The knitted sweater that Tally got from giving away her spagbol.

    9. The wallscreen software that lets you “choose” what you want to look like when you’re Pretty. (forgot the name used at the moment.)

    My mom made me exercise. (boo.) but I’m back and am going to continue my list of pings. ( forgot to readd the evil Spagbol for #5 on my Stuff they NEED on the Uglies movie and if they don’t add it the consequences will be world-wrecking!!! (Oil Bug world wrecking to be exact.)List. Once again, feel free to add on to the list loyal fans!!!

    1. The sky needs to look like salmon colored cat vomit when Tally sneaks of to see Peris. Because that first sentence automaticly makes you read the book.

    2. Two words: pig mask

    5.Spagbolspagbolspagbolspagbolspagbolspagbolspagbolspagbolspagbolspagbolspagbolspagbol.. The more I type those words, the nastier this meal seems to become.

    6. Tally’s Best Friend scar

    7. chicken and rabbit pen in The Smoke

    8. The knitted sweater that Tally got from giving away her spagbol.

    9. The wallscreen software that lets you “choose” what you want to look like when you’re Pretty. (forgot the name used at the moment.)

    10. The magazine scene in the library.

    Hooray for copy and pasteing! I had NO idea you could do that until now! My Wols Gnipyt syndrome is no longer as servere! (see if y’all can decode that) :)

    Ping to ALEXANDRA: Ohmigosh I completely forgot about that line! I think they should also use “I’m Tally Youngblood, make me pretty.” That was just an extreme cliff-hanger to me. I couldn’t bear to wait at the library for Pretties I thought I would die!

    Ping to Kristina-la: comment 290, very dramatic! ;)

    Ping to Megan: Right on about comment 292! Let’s give it up for all the small town thrivers like us! (claps entusiastically)

    Ping to Riva-la: What about using Paramore as one of the bands? ( to everyone) once again I have recently posted another Youtube clip that has the song Emergency by Paramore

    click here to watch:

    Please watch! As stated on a pre-comment the lyrics may be in question to some but it seems very Uglies worthy to me! :)

    Ping to rose-la: I wish time would pass by too. Yay! Me loves Paramore also! (recently discovered the band.) Quick Question, is there a clean version of Misery Business? I’ve known the song for a while but just now learned the title. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think it may have one swear word in it & my mom doesn’t let me buy explicit songs on itunes. ( Just incase I’m right about the swearing, don’t mention the word just say there is one. Thanks!) Anyway here’s a quick math problem:

    awesome vocals + crazy hair = Haley Williams! ( Hopefully I got the name right…) :)

    Ping to cait-la: it helps if you save it (the site) to pop up when you use the internet that’s what I do. ( comment 299)

    Still have one more ping to do but i have to go2 the store Cyall l8tr !

    for tally, they should have a person NOT wearing makeup play her. she should look regular, and she shouldn’t look like she just stepped of the cover of a magazine. AND, she shouldn’t look anorexic, or wear jeans.
    they should find some random person like, walking around in a store or something, instead of using someone famous.

    June 28th, 2009 00:12

    sry it’s been forever and there is too much to respond to so i didn’t read half of the comments…
    Ping to the OTHER Tally Youngblood: sorry but i have to steal ur ping idea. genius. anyway, my mom claims that it is my fault about my ipod, becuz i left it in my jacket pocket and asked her to wash it… i think it’s hers. she thinks that the same thing will happen with my phone, because after not having it for a month, i constantly forget where it is.. im not back into the habit yet. and to add to your list:
    1. oh crap i forgot.. oh yeah! when the smokies leave the shoes for tally in the holding pen.
    2. The doctor coming up to say:”we have a problem with your operation” this should be part of the commercial too.
    im too tired to respond to anything else….. gah….. i can hardly think. and i hate this keyboard. my dad and stepmom changed all of the computers around so now my dad’s computer is mine, my stepmom’s computer is his, and she gets a new computer. well, my new computer has no internet yet, so im stuck on my dad’s. and the keyboard is really loud and not what im used to. so yeah…. i will talk more later but right now i want some food…… yet i shouldnt, i am allready chunky enough. i need to eat less. lol. anywayz ttyl.

    and in specials for the Manifesto, it should start off with tally saying ping to whoever … then it shows maddy, peris and shay reading it, with tally’s voice saying it at the same time. i dunno, just a thought..

    K. Alroy (Known as Lena-La, name #14 in Bogus)
    June 28th, 2009 01:20

    Okay yeah, someone famous for Cable, that’s a given. Knowing Hollywood, if we don’t get unknown actors for Tally or Shay, we’ll just get Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Anne Hudgens (Don’t believe me? Two words: New Moon) so that’s a given as well. We need someone cold, calculating, and preferably with the ability to make their eye twitch (Come on, don’t tell me you don’t wanna see a Cable eyetwitch)

    What I want is a frontal view for the rollercoaster scene. Sort-of a ‘we feel like we’re there’ sort-of thing going down, then a bird’s eye view to show us just how frigging big and horrific the Rusties made their cities. I think that’s an important part of Uglies: showing the future in a layer that can be peeled away to show how ‘ugly’ it really is. It should be made clear that our future is no wonderland.

    At the same time, it can’t exactly be preachy. We still need to feel Tally and Shay become best friends (something that, sorry, I felt wasn’t explored as much as it really should’ve in the books) and we need to feel it strong enough to know that when Tally makes her choice, it’s a hard choice to make. A really hard choice. This is a girl who has to choose between her dreams and her best friend.

    Also: Peris. Sure, he can be someone moderately famous but he still needs to be there. A touch of humor would seem right to most screenwriters to put in during the opening scene (in the form of him acting awkward) and perhaps that would be better for a ‘teen’ movie (though I think it’s fine as-is in the book). I think a montage would be in order for the ‘Tally goes to the Smoke!’ sequence because the bits until the fire are a bit dull when imagined on a screen (though they were needed and quite well written). . .

    That’s all. ^_^

    Belated Ping to Haley Rae: I meant to respond earlier but anyway, I feel like I’ve heard your name before… Is your mom a 4th grade teacher? I doubt that Uglies would be R- rated. If you ask me, that’s a little too cautious-making. On comment 303 you make a gr8 point.

    Ping to Jadea-la: I will add on to The List immeadetly. (P.S I totes 4got about T.Y riding barefoot part good job! Maybe I could make up a song… I AM pretty good @ writing poetry…..)

Chunks… I can’t STAND that word. Just sounds sooo wrong. Onwards towards The List!!!!

    Stuff they NEED on the Uglies movie and if they don’t add it the consequences will be world-wrecking!!! (Oil Bug world wrecking to be exact.)List. Once again, feel free to add on to the list loyal fans!!!

    3. the roller coaster/hoverboard ride.

    4. Shay’s crudely written note ( mabe it could be written in the actress’ non-dominant hand unless that is, if they write with both hands. If that’s the case just let a little kid do it cause little kids aren’t the best handwriters.

    7. chicken and rabbit pen in The Smoke

    8. The knitted sweater that Tally got from giving away her spagbol.

    9. The wallscreen software that lets you “choose” what you want to look like when you’re Pretty. (forgot the name used at the moment.)

    10. The magazine scene in the library.

    Things to add to the other Tally Youngbloods list. (Super smiley Ping thanks to Jaeda-la.)

    11. “You can die pretty for all I care.”- Dr. Cable

    I was mad that Dakota Fanning was offered the part of Jane>=O
    I wanted that part *complains*
    They should do a lot of looking before they choose parts for the people… they shouldn’t just be like “Oh ok he/she looks semi-good, so he/she gets the part.” They should really do looking, and I think open auditions would be a great way to find new, GOOD talent.

    June 28th, 2009 02:58

    I agree with a lot of the other posters, we need unknown people to be cast as Tally, Shay, David and Zane, but I would like to see an actress with some experience work as Dr.Cable, I think that Sienna Guillory is a good choice, as she’s pretty and she’s been in a few movies already. With makeup they could easily sharpen her looks to make her fit Cable perfectly.

    And yes, I agree with you, Sarah-la, I was mad when I heard that Dakota Fanning would be in New Moon. I mean, she may be an okay actress, but I really don’t like her that much.

    Oh, and Scott should have some auditions in Canada, I know that we’ve got a lot to offer in way of hidden talents here in the north, and I would love to audition!

    June 28th, 2009 03:11

    i deffinitly cant wait for a movie like that too come out. it would be interesting too see the ugly word outside of my head and what they look like as well. and deffinitly as a series of movies would be sweet.

  331. 331

    I agree with Sarah-la I think they should do a lot of searching to find actors and actress’s that will be great for the roles.

    Ping to Sarah-la: I agree Auditions are a great idea! It would be awesome if the movies is made and when we all watched it and the actors fit their roles perfectly! I really hope they make the movie!

    Ping to Kristina-la: I agree! NO ACCENTS!

    Ping to Alix-wa: My opinion would be that I think that would be very kool if he had a cameo appearance!

    All in all I really hope they turn it into a movie! I’ve been hoping since Scott came to my school (This is actually how I found out about Uglies) when my school did a “one book one school” program and EVERYONE in the entire school Read Uglies even the Staff! Then Scott came to our School and it was awesome and even then he said it would be 2 years before he would know anything about whether or not a movie would be made of Uglies! 2 years would be when I enter 12th grade whcih will be this fall! So yea I’ve been waiting around to find out about all this for a while! lol

    Ping to the OTHER Tally Youngblood: I have a few things that I want to add to ur list!

    When David gives Tally the “bug” check before taking her all the way to the smoke

    When David gives Tally the gloves as a gift

    The rope Tally uses to get across the river and into New Pretty Town in the beginning of the book

    When Peris visits Tally in Uglyville

    The whole in the wall that lets pretties get what they want

    ok That’s it for now! I really hope theirs a movie and sry It’s been a long time since I’ve Posted!

    ok, i just got mind-rain yesterday… i loved the shay ones but after reading one of the others where the writers worshiped the grouing tally walked on, i was about to throw up.
    Ping to everyone:(including u, scott-la) Do you all agree that Shay was in love with Tally? did you make it to be that way, scott-la? i thought i suspected it, but then after uglies i just thought that it was pretty friendship……
    Ping to the OTHER tally youngblood: y do capitalizing? it just takes up time…. anyway i must start calling u tOty, becuz ur name is much too long… and im not sure i would wanna be albert einstien, for a few reasons:
    1. He had crazy hair(not that i really care about my hair or anything like that)
    2. When you know everything, then there is nothing left to learn, and then life would be boring. in my opinion, you learn more on the road to getting somewhere then you do just by being there. Like, if you were gonna try to travel from N.Y.C to Georgia, then if you just teleported there, you wouldn’t see all of the new and interesting things on the way down….
    wow. i just had an Anne Frank-like moment of inspiration*shudder*, i love to write, but i HATED anne frank’s constant monolouges about things that don’t even make sense…
    Ping to Sara-la: yes, it is both of our faults, but, as she is my mother, i have to work for it. oh well!
    Ping to those who have Mind Rain: don’t you love Robin Wasserman’s insight an Shay! Finally, someone who gets what im saying!!!
    Ping tomy evil sinus infection: I HATE YOU! MAKING MY NOSE EVEN STUFFIER THAN IT USUALLY IS…. and then when i have to blow my nose, it doesn’t even come out! so i am stuck with eveil snottiness in my nose…and it makes me all congested and what not…..

    Ping to Amber-la:
    If they go with the open auditions, though, we’d have to make them do it all over. They could do them in California, New York, Florida, other places in the Mid-west and South.
    Ping to Alix-wa:
    They could have open auditions in Canada, too, but like Kristina-la said, they can’t really have different accents in the movie. They are all supposed to be the same, more or less.

  339. 339
    June 28th, 2009 19:53

    pING TO aLEXANDERA: YEAH, THAT would be soo cool! that is why i think that the movies should be seperate…. because the last lines end them so perfectyl…
    Ping to tOty: do u remember ur new name? good. anyway, i have another thing to add to ur list:
    1. Croy riding back with Tally and Shay at the end of Uglies, i think that they should play Never Too Late by 3 days grace then…
    2. Of course the last lines, as mentioned by Alexandera..

  340. 340
    June 28th, 2009 19:55

    Ping to Sara-la: that’s a good point about auditions in canada… but remember, tally’s city is near seattle, so maybe a slight canadian accent would be good, because in traveling to the smoke, she goes a bit up into the Canadian Rockies..

    June 28th, 2009 19:57

    Ping to Pony-la:
    You’re right… th northern accent-thing would be a point, so maybe David should have a stonger accent than the rest of them because he’s lived there for so long..?
    I don’t know, just a thought.

  343. 343
    June 28th, 2009 20:04

    Ping to Sara-la: Yeah, the speech he gave was pretty cool… yet i can’t imagine a school wanting to use it. My sister is doing the drama class in high school, and in 9th grade they had to do a monolouge.. hers was shortened because of her disability, but i think that if we get to choose, i will do Tally’s Manifesto, the last chapter of Specials… and Will Smith is soo cute and soooo funny…. and i totally forgot about how David should have a stronger accent. I just try to forget about david, becuz he is a Shay-hater…. therefore i must hate him.

    Just for the record, its Sarah-la, not Sara-la. And he doesn’t hate Shay; he just doesn’t /love/ her. There is a difference in that. He is a good guy through the whole series, past the part where his home is destroyed.

    June 28th, 2009 20:47

    Yay! This is so happy-making! Just last night I was telling someone how you should make a movie about the Uglies and I didn’t realize you were! I agree with everyone that Tally and Shay and most of the others should be unknown, save Dr. Cable(i think Nicole Kidman would be a great suggestion or Tilda Swinton too). I LOVE all of these books. You did an amzing job writing them. Just don’t let the producers ruin anything, like they sometimes do to books turned movies(most recently My Sister’s Keeper)

    Pings to everybody: As you can see I wasn’t back in 60 min or less. My mom temporarily banned me from the computer until now bu I’m back so I’m gonna post. Forgot to add thank the good Lord for Copy and pasting!

    Oh! :o I just remembered, I found a book to read and it’s not Midnighters or Peeps(though I DID find it as I was looking for PEEPS) it’s not even by Scott-la! (gasps) it’s called Skinned by Robin Wasserman. Sound familiar? It’s advertised in the back of Bogus to Bubbly and when I read the summary and saw that Scott-la’s name was on it as a review I knew I had to read it.
    Here’s the summary and the 1st page really lures you in. Just like UGLIES!

    Lia Kahn was perfect: rich, beautiful, popular.
    Until the accident that nearly killed her.
    Now she has been downloaded into a new body that only looks human. Lia will never feel pain again, she will never age, and she can’t ever truly die.
    But some miracles come at a price. . .

    Sound interesting yet? Okay. Here’s what Scott-la said:

    “A spellbinding story about loss, rebirth, and finding out who we really are inside. This intense and moving novel will wind up under your skin.”

    – SCOTT WESTERFELD New York Times bestselling author of the Uglies series.

    I’m going to check and see if Scott-la posted so bye!

    June 29th, 2009 00:09

    Oh and by the way does anyone else here write? Like, little stories or anything? I do, and I need inspiration… my current story is going nowhere right now and my friend is pressuring me to write ‘MORE MORE MORE!!!’ Anyone have advice? I know I’m ok at story ideas, then I write like 4 pages, then it gets nowhere after that. So far, I have about two 2-3 page chapters to this one… Any help? D:

    Oh! I remember… sorta… well I had two things to say, and one was a song that would be good for pretties, when Zane is dying, the song Nineteen Stars, by Meg & Dia. And the other thing I wanted to say was a quote, but I don’t remember what it was yet… So hang on :D

  351. 351
    June 29th, 2009 00:13

    Ok well I just thought of something now, that had to be added to the OTHER Tally Youngblood’s list… its when David gives Tally the leather gloves that Shay notices. Still can’t remember the quote.

  352. 352
    June 29th, 2009 01:44

    arg people Canadians do NOT have an accent
    Im sorrey but that just makes me pissed when people say we do. No one says eh! I have never herd anyone here say that.
    when I said accent
    has any of you even talked to a canadian. we talk the same as you except we prononce roof properly.

    I mean no ofense this topic just annoys me

  353. 353
    June 29th, 2009 01:46

    Skin color is mentioned when they’re messing with Shay’s face on the wall screen while Shay anxiously tugged her belly ring, she wanted to go boarding while Tally wanted to make some outrageous faces. The whole, “I like the wild side better bit”.

    The skin color thing is mentioned and Tally has a shiver that runs through her, because she can’t imagine wars ever starting because people looked different.

    And as for the story thing, Sarah, I’m the same exact way!

  355. 355
    June 29th, 2009 02:27

    Ping to Haley Rae:
    Yeah… I just realized the skin color thing. And stories are totally bogus when they go no where!

    General Ping:
    I just finished reading Uglies… again… so on to Pretties… again!

    **Does anyone know who is on the cover of Pretties? Especially the girl? I know some say its Tally, but Shay got the counter-clockwise diamonds put in, and the girl on the cover has diamonds in her eyes… and I’m guessing the guy on the cover is Zane, with whichever girl she is.

    this movie would be epic. the music should be done by e.s. posthummus, just saying, it’s amazing.

    ping to the other tally youngblood haha I LOVED YOUR LIST!

    ya but back to the point, i agree, like every other uglies lover that shay and tally need to be unknowners, it will just give the audience a chance to adapt to them as these characters and not characters from other movies and get the chance to see them as actual uglies.

    i remember reading these books about 2 and half years ago and though, hm i should write to like george or steven or peter and ask them to do this.

    ya, but scott i love your books. i read peeps after i read this series and i was like YES i love it, a sequel needs to come out.

    i hate double posting but i i forgot
    i love tilda but i don’t think she coud pull off dr cable,
    nicole kidman could, she proved that one in golden compass
    but someone scary beautiful needs to play her.

    ah i am so excited this might be made into a movie.

  358. 358
    June 29th, 2009 05:29

    Back with more to add to the list. My frien Anea-la and Scott-la helped me with this one though.
    32. Tally nearly dieing when shes at the cliff
    33. Her throwing the locket in the fire
    34. Everyone leaving there shoes in the pen
    35. When Croy is just convincing Shay that Tally wasn’t helping Special Cricumstances that two of them come up and take her to Dr. Cable, telling her what a good job she did.
    36. When Tally steals the hoverboard from the roof
    well I have to go, add more later! Jaeda-la

    June 29th, 2009 06:13

    lots of comments.
    ping to Lilah-wa: I think all actors have to have at least some makeup on, cuz it they don’t, the lights will wash out their features. (once i forgot to use eyebrow pencil for an dance competition. No eyebrows! haha, it was sad.)
    but they shouldn’t cake it on, like, to get rid of all the pores and stuff. just get the makeup artist to lighten up on the foundation.
    and yea, i think the skin color thing is sorta confusing, cuz all the actors will either have to be a mix of like, um, idk wat they are. or they’ll need to get spray tans or something. but then theyll be orange…idk.
    tho paramore is definetely not on my ‘likey likey list’,
    i hav to admit they are good for soundtracks. so note that producers!
    i guess MCR would be too dark though, cuz tally isnt emo…FOB and AAR r still on my list!

    June 29th, 2009 07:57

    how would people feel about actors who aren’t 16, say they 17 or 18 but they look 16 and they fit the part like perfect? would you fan’s be angry about that? or happy that they got someone who actually fits the part and LOOKS the part opposed to who is 16 and may fit the character? just been wondering about that.

  364. 364
    K. Alroy (Known as Lena-La, name #14 in Bogus)
    June 29th, 2009 08:58

    They probably won’t get people who are actually 16. In fact, for the stunt work and fitness needed, they would probably go for 18 or older. It’s a common casting call-It’s rare that they want actual 15-17 year olds when they can easily get people who are legal, don’t need tutoring on set, and who have more experience.

  365. 365
    June 29th, 2009 09:26

    Look at it this way— Bella is supposed to be 16, and Kristen Stewart is 18, and Edward is supposed to be perpetually 17, and Robert Pattison is 23.

    June 29th, 2009 10:49

    you know, i thought of something else that could potentially ruin a movie adaptation of uglies: pop music. ok, it wasn’t just the music that made me never want to see watchmen (i haven’t seen it), but the music in the commercials and glancing at the soundtrack did make me a bit sick to my stomach. it’s probably cheaper to not use pop music, but i guess there are deals made on the parts of the artists, or the music is used to advertise and generate buzz in the movie, but since this movie takes place so far in the future, i just think the feel would be more appropriate if there was a musical score instead of a top 40-ready soundtrack of pop or emo or rock or anything at all really.

    so yeah, an original score would be really really appreciated.

  367. 367
    June 29th, 2009 12:56

Its supposedly set to come out in 2011 according to Other Sources, so my friends and I are naturally already planning on attending the premiere. Thats it. No more expectations. Just being at the premiere in LA the summer after I graduate would make my year.

    And the fact that this is the first time Ive checked Scott-samas blog in over 6 months and movie news is up?

    Definitely a sign.

    And to all of you who remember me: Hi! To anyone whose wondering why Im not using apostrophes in my comment even though Im usually a stickler about grammar: Im currently an exchange student in Spain! And there are no apostrophes in the Spanish language, and therefore none on the keyboards of computers.

    Wanna know more? Click my name and check out my video letters to my friend Kelsey.

    Remember the sign offs? I need a better one. ,-)

    ok, i just got mind-rain yesterday… i loved the shay ones but after reading one of the others where the writers worshiped the grouing tally walked on, i was about to throw up.
    Ping to everyone:(including u, scott-la) Do you all agree that Shay was in love with Tally? did you make it to be that way, scott-la? i thought i suspected it, but then after uglies i just thought that it was pretty friendship……
    Ping to the OTHER tally youngblood: y do capitalizing? it just takes up time…. anyway i must start calling u tOty, becuz ur name is much too long… and im not sure i would wanna be albert einstien, for a few reasons:
    1. He had crazy hair(not that i really care about my hair or anything like that)
    2. When you know everything, then there is nothing left to learn, and then life would be boring. in my opinion, you learn more on the road to getting somewhere then you do just by being there. Like, if you were gonna try to travel from N.Y.C to Georgia, then if you just teleported there, you wouldn’t see all of the new and interesting things on the way down….
    wow. i just had an Anne Frank-like moment of inspiration*shudder*, i love to write, but i HATED anne frank’s constant monolouges about things that don’t even make sense…
    Ping to Sara-la: yes, it is both of our faults, but, as she is my mother, i have to work for it. oh well!
    Ping to those who have Mind Rain: don’t you love Robin Wasserman’s insight an Shay! Finally, someone who gets what im saying!!!
    Ping tomy evil sinus infection: I HATE YOU! MAKING MY NOSE EVEN STUFFIER THAN IT USUALLY IS…. and then when i have to blow my nose, it doesn’t even come out! so i am stuck with eveil snottiness in my nose…and it makes me all congested and what not…..

    Lmao!!! i only had to read the 1st sentence to get again that you really do hate Tally!!! XD you really make me laugh!!! (in a good way!!)

    I got Extras yesterday and it is SUCH a good book!!!!! I meam we all know that (sorry Scott) Pretties could of been much better, and that Uglies was the best in the series. Heres the “face ranks” of all the books!

    thank you so much Scott for writting thse books!

    My favorite character of all times is Shay. Why? Because I hate her so much. Any character in any book that can cause this much discussion and speculation is the best.

    Ant-la: I know you werent talking to me, but I always capitalize words because its actually faster this way, because Im so used to writing correctly.

    <3 Still thinking of a new sign off ;-)

    Dear Scott,

    I have just finished reading Uglies and have talked to my friends and family about it non-stop. I think its an amazing book and can’t wait to get started on the second one. I haven’t looked at your website until today when i saw the demand for a film which was the exact reason for my email. This my sound a bit stupid but i would really like to play Tally since i think we have a lot in common from the way you described her for e.g I have a frizzy curly hair and a flat nose. I have taned skin but an unusual auburny coloured hair. I am quite tall and thin. I also think we are quite the same in character and therefore would really like to audition for her if the chance comes up for an unknown actress. I have not done any acting work before but currently go to drama classes at school and in September will be attending a Stage School. My Grandfather is an actor and have been to see him whilst filming many a time, I also have quite a lot of other family members who are actors and actresses who i have also watched. I am thirteen years old, fourteen in September however i look older and could easily play at least a young looking 16 year old. I am really serious about this and would really appreciate a chance to audition for Tally.

    Please reply or help keep me posted although i’ll be checking the site everyday.

    Yours sincerly

    Tanisha Flynn

    June 29th, 2009 22:49

    Yay!!! I’m so excited! I agree that an unknown should play Tally and Shay and David… Otherwise… You know- it could just somehow ruin the movie. Weird thing is I pictured Taylor Swift as Shay but with dark hair. She’s too old now. She’ll be 20 next December. I can’t wait until we find out who’s playing who- and when they’re going to be casting for extras if they turn Uglies into a movie. It’d be fun to be a special or a Smokie!

    June 29th, 2009 22:50

    Blahhh Charlize Theron would be excellent Dr.Cable. Tilda is kinda creepy. Disney is not accepted in the movie =P

    O and in Aya’s city “sama” is a title of respect ,Tally-sama, and everyone else is “chan” like Aya-chan, Hiro-chan, but in Tally’s city it’s either “la” or “wa” are those titles too and why is Tally the only one with “wa” after her name?????

  379. 379
    June 29th, 2009 23:15

    Actually Ant-la i disagree here are the fac-ranks according to my opinion

    1. Specials
    2. Extras
    3. Uglies
    4. Pretties

    but pretties is fourth for me too but don’t get me wrong Scott all of them are pretty damn awesome

  380. 380
    June 29th, 2009 23:21

    Chan is used for anyone outside immediate family or used for friends

  381. 381
    June 29th, 2009 23:28

    ok then why does Aya call her brother Hiro-chan? and why is Tally the only one with “wa” after her name? 0.0

    June 30th, 2009 01:05

    hey, i am so siked that they’re even thinking about making Uglies a movie. I also picture Dr.Cable as younger. But if they do use an older women they should use Meryl Streep. I know it sounds kinda crazy but hey, i’m crazy. + i think they should use a few moderately famous people to draw attention to this (will be) amazing movie.

  387. 387
    can't wait for this to be a movie
    June 30th, 2009 01:09

    wow 385 wait 386 comments in like one week that’s a sign or something. THEY MUST MAKE THINS A MOVIE. for everyones sake.

  388. 388
    June 30th, 2009 01:12

    Okay for once I totally agree with what he mentioned that you guys said wow! okay anyways here’s just some things I would like to see:

    1. Unknown actors for Tally,Shay, & David (in all the movies)
    2. Please don’t use uber amounts of make-up to make them “ugly” PLEASE!
    3. Please make the hoverboards look authentic
    4.Instead of a set use the real outdoors for The Smoke and on her journey
    5. Small time actors for Az and Maddy
    6. I think using fans as the extras and as Croy and Astrix and Ryde would apeal more to the fans

    Thats all I can think of now so yea I know I just put my little 2sense in every now and then but hey I’m busy!

    Pony-la and Jaeda-la: I love dr. Cable in a ohmygodsheismysecondfavoritesupervillanafterSylarfromheroes kind of way. *cough* Nicole Kidman *cough* So badass in every way. Shay, on the other hand, was so whiney, and messed up Tallys life every time things started to go right. First the Uglies thing (which was arguably the best thing she did for Tally, helping her see the outside world). After that, though, it was all down hill.

    With the David argument, pretty shay becoming special, even as a special she always hated tally, and everything she did made me want to smack her. In a way, she embodied the teenage girl in all of us, but everyone knows that the less said teenage girl influences us, the better.

    But Im not here to argue, Im here to promote Hans Zimmer to do the score! Yeah, awesome idea, right?

    Oh, and to whoever said Taylor Swift, I say she definitely looks the part (like in You Belong With Me), but Shay is an intense roll and I highly doubt Swift is that good of an actress.

    Oh, and people, stop asking Scott-sama to be in the Uglies movie. Instead, start asking (insert big time hollywood agency) here.

    Still thinking of a new sign off ;-)

  403. 403
    June 30th, 2009 03:31

    Udzir: Scott explained the whole suffix thing in one of his other posts, but I will explain it to you.

    Tallys world is basically LA 300 years into the future. Everyone gets nicknames based on the spelling of their name. Everyone is -la, unless there is an L in their name. Then, theyre -wa (hence, Tally-wa, Shay-la)

    Ayas world is Tokyo 310 years into the future (dont correct me if the dates are wrong, Im estimating based on what I can remember from Bogus to Bubbly). Different country, different time, different nicknames. Everyone gets a nickname based on levels of respect. -chan for friends and family, -sensei for people in the top 100, and -sama for legendary heroes (hence Aya-chan, Hiro-sensei, and Tally-sama).

    When Tally meets Aya, both slang nicknames are used because they are two different people from different cities.

    Hope that clears things up for everyone.

    Still trying to find a good sign off ;-)

    June 30th, 2009 04:59

    I think Bridget Moynahan the girl from irobot would be cool for Dr.Cable..idk i just picture dr.cable like her..when i was reading the book..then again im weird..i think shes to good luck picking dr.cable

    And the characters from the covers..of uglies..pretties..and specials..ive imagined them like the characters in the book as idk..

    william levi would make a great zane..hes hot..but..he speaks spanish..not sure about english..and people say hes to idk..

  412. 412
    June 30th, 2009 07:22

    well scott mentioned it once o a post but its also in bogus to bubbly.
    and also….some of the famous people(like Nana Love) like to be called -chan instead of sensai…..I dont remember the reason but they do.

  413. 413
    June 30th, 2009 07:50

    i think that the uglies book sereies would be a record breaker at theaters because hollywood should see what happens to people that get plastic surgeory :)

  414. 414
    June 30th, 2009 08:08

    do you meen someone who’s never been in a movie OR someone not seen very much?

    my answer to Jordanna would be that i’m fine with either, BUT they have to be talented and ABLE to act.

  415. 415
    June 30th, 2009 08:26

    it should be mentioned that tally squints as she is called squint and shay has pigtails!

    the GLAMOUR of the pretty world!!

    Quotes that have to been in the movie:

    An, Deex, Sussy in the sparklers of “The smoke lives!”

    ALSO when tally is going to the should be shoot outside..atlest for a bit and not all in the studio

  416. 416
    June 30th, 2009 08:48

    Ping to Pony-la:
    The writer’s block thing, yeah… I have so little done and only one person even cares, so… yeah. And my first name is Sarah, and my middle name is Jane… haha. I usually prefer to go by Jane, but its easier to type Sarah for me :P

    Ping to Tanisha Flynn:
    No offence, I really hope this doesn’t come out offensively sounding, but just because you write a “heartfelt” letter to the author of the book doesn’t mean you’ll get the part. And there are a lot of people who share a lot of characteristics with Tally and would kill to play the part.

  417. 417
    Tally & Zane
    June 30th, 2009 09:17

    No offense, but did Scott-la not ask to stop asking him about casting? “Where are we now? Well, there’s no script, director, or actors lined up yet. So be patient and stop asking me about casting! If there are open auditions, you’ll see it here first.” And then again in the same post. “So you can stop asking me about casting calls. Seriously.” He obviously doesn’t want to be bothered about that when he repeated himself. I’m guessing lots of people have been saying the same things.

  418. 418
    June 30th, 2009 09:38

    uh ohhhhhhh, too many ‘plz cast me calls’ scott-sensei will be mad………id sorta like u to glitterbomb us tho scott, if ur reading this, that would be totally ok with me.

    i like them all the same. but i wish zane couldve lived…
    i actually dont like shay. she annoys the hell out of me.

    i completely agree that there should be NO pop music and NO disney. at all. alternative is ok. no heavy metal or classical. and no strate rap either, plz. k producer ppl?

    if u agree with my disney ban, plz copy and paste the following. or do it out of pity cuz no one else is.

    To whom it may concern:

    Please do not allow Disney to, in any form or way, be part of the movie Uglies. This includes acting, soundtrack, or anything else that has not been typed.
    I really hope that you will consider this!

    i agree with tally & zane. scott has said to stop asking about casting. and i get that people are excited and that’s okay. but stop asking. it isn’t going to make him any MORE excited if it get’s picked up than having every other fan ask or say well i would make a great tally because so and so. when it happens it will happen. and i don’t think the whole i think this person would be great at dr. cable is bad, because that’s cool and i think it would be a big help. but really, leave the casting questions alone for now.

    Ping to Audrei-Sensei: i love dr cable!!! she is soo kick-ass! she is mean, crude, perceptive and sharp. i hated in mind0rain where the guy was comparing her to Hitler and Stalin! she isn’t plain out evil like that! and since u hate shay, i must assume that you love David. i hate david. he rejected shay, and for no reason at all but for the fact that he thinks that Tally must be tenTHOUSAND times awesomer than shay. and in NO WAY was shay whiney! TALLY is the one that just sits around, staring out the window at new pretty town, whining about not having peris, when she DOES decide to go across the river, she whined the whole time because peris wasnt there by her side. poor, misunderstood tally. i wil stop now before i go on a total tally-hating rampage…
    Ping to Udzir: yes, SHAY WAS THE BEST SPECIAL! i loved the special shay more than anything else in the whole book. even the specialness of tally ocasionally made me hate her a little less. yah. shay rocks. tally is a selfish, whining brat who lives in her own little fantasy world of “poor me. it’s not my fault. i can’t have every little thing that i want so i am just gonna sit around and cry.” grrrrrrrr

    FINALLY someone who understands how amazingly awesome Shay was/ not as much now that she is cured. but Tally is a stupid brat that wants people to feel sorry for her and Shay had to hold Tally’s hand through everything. Shay took Tally to the Smoke and to David. Shay introduced Tally to the Crims and to Zane. Shay even let Tally be a Cutter after EVERYTHING Tally did to her. If i was Shay-la i would like never have forgiven Tally. . . . maybe.

    Uglies is an amazing book! And I think that means it has to be an amazing movie! I really think that the leads of Tally & Shea should be unknowns. People that are literally really good but haven’t gotten many things yet. Maybe somsone that has been in little things but still fairly unknown. I think the special effects are really important in this movie as well!!!!!!!!
    I think that Dr. Cable should be a well known actress!! That would defenitely put a twist to things. And if you found people that were familiar with the series so they could make the characters great!!!

    I can’t wait till Uglies comes out!! :)

    Jordanna: Unknown means just that–not well known. They should obviously have acting experience, but that doesnt necessarily mean movies. i.e. Zachary Quinto kicked ass in Star Trek even though it was technically his big screen debut; he has heck of experience on TV shows.

    Excited Person: Were just smart or we read Scotts post that explained everything.

    Riva-la: You dont think pop music would perfectly embody New Pretty Town? Club music isnt deep enough, and pop music sells soundtracks.

    Oh, and people. Read the posts before you ask questions. And to the person who wrote the really long list that I had a too short attention span to read: its not going to happen. Im sorry, but theres only so many things the director will be willing to put in the script. My advice to everyone: if you want to enjoy the movie, as soon as a release date is announced do not read a book in the series until you see the movie. You will enjoy it a lot more, i promise you. Thats what I did with Harry Potter, and I dont regret it.

    If Hollywood is the devil, then Im playing the advocate ;-)

Though it may be kind of obious on what the title should be.

    And it’s all because you’re not comfortable in your own skin.

    I really hope you look inside your heart. This is real life you don’t get to restart.

    Game Over.

    Can’t turn back the clock once you make your decision.

    Game Over.

    I know that you’re lying what’s the truth to your mission?

    Game Over.

    That’s what you get for makin one wrong move.

    Game Over.

    You really shoulda known that you were gonna have to choose.

    Game Over.

    You chose the wrong thing. But it’s no use clingin to the past.
    Can’t start all over. Trust me I knew this wouldn’t last….

    Tangled in this web of endless lies and dishonesty, I sure am glad that you chose him instead of me.

    (tOty speaking: I kind of imagine some kind of guitar solo here. LOL :D )

    Cause this whole entire friendship you were nothing but a dirty little liar.

    Now your world’s in turmoil and the flames are rising higher.

    You’d rather betrat us than think about tellin the truth.

    Well what goes around comes around and now it’s commin back on you.

  447. 447
    July 1st, 2009 03:45

    Well, I think that first of all, don’t go through the whole expense of hiring screen/script writers. THE BOOK IS THE SCRIPT PEOPLE!!! That way there will be no story cuts, the set will be great, the characters are their real selves, and stage actions and choreogrophy are all there. Thats why Scott even wrote the book, to paint a picture in our minds, like a mental movie.

    Two words, DIGITAL MAPPING. Like what they used to get all the centars in Narnia. Even though we’re not in Tally’s time, we do have technology, and the only way we can achieve future technology is by using the latest stuff we have now. I mean we got most of our stuff now from Star Treck TV show gadget ideas. What I really think we need to do is create that Pretty-making toy that Tally and Shay were using in the book. How cool would that be if they invented it ideally for this movie? I know that’s nearing impossible, but that will still pretty cool.

    I think, this is just an idea, that all the books should be three movies, since there are three parts to each book. That way they company makes more money, the fans get more excited and pay more to see it, and then you have more chances to pull in more crowds and redo mistakes. all i ask is don’t let three years go in between each making of the movies. do them all in a row, except for Extras

    And lastly I think that all the fans should have the opprotunity to make an appearance on the movies as extras, or just being recognized for all their wonderful ideas, at least. After all, where would this movie be with out us?

I wouldn’t be caught dead at a say Hannah Montana movie….but I’ll admitt I still like to watch old Disney movies….who doesn’t right?……..and Disney Channel(or family channel up here in good old Canada what happened to them playing good tv shows like Alf and Boy Meets World(which is my all time fav tv series ever) and Brotherly love, Life with Bonnie…..They’re ALL gone. Whats in their place? the same 5 shows played over and over again all night long. Don’t they think that we are getting sick of it yet?……I mean when it was those old shows that we had seen every episode of it was ok because they were worth seeing over and over again. I don’t really want to see the same episode of Life with Derick and Hannah Montanna over and over again.

    Ping to Riva-la: I guess pop would be fine in NPT. but i agree w/you and your badly written leagal document when I say Disney shan’t (and shan’t is a really old word that hardly anyone says so you know I’m not joking when I say this.) be in any part, at all whatsoever, in this production. ( though since I’m not afraid of admitting my own failures, not saying that you are afraid Riva-la. I will state that I suggested that the Ed-cam dude on P.P.P should maybe play Zane in PRETTIES. )Anyway, I don’t fully dispise disney, I just sometimes have this feeling that they want to take over the world just like the wolbachia. (yes I am still using refrences from PEEPS.) enough with my ramblings though. I’m gonna keep pinging.

    Ping to Darklings ‘r’ us: Scott-la has repeated to stop begging! He said he will post when he’s ready (or something of the sort.) I know you’re excited and I get that cause so am I but when he gets enough info to post he will.

    Cait-la: Script writers are still needed for blocking, scene cuts, and special effects. After all, we cant have narration the whole time. Books and movies are completely different. About the pretty-making machine. Are you talking about the one that turns your face pretty? Because that already exists and is commonly used, epecialls by doctors. The only reason regular people dont all own one is theres no demand, and its too expensive (although, this used to be the case with the television, so you never know…)

    ping to Audrei-sensei: everyone knows that its not really gonna be all put into the movie, but it’s for fun and also to help us recap on uglies since i havent read it in a long time.. my only reson being that i took that one from the library and bought the rest, and never got around to buying it… and nana love seems like too much of a bubblehead to think about that, and on the rare and close-to-impossible chance that tally DOES show up, then there would be 1001 poeple there, or 1002 counting nana love… but what about shay and the other cutters? i wonder if zane would be one of the thousand faces… and everytime you go to feeling bubble, u get a new gface rank.

    That would take way too much time and money! Movies cost a lot to make and I actually don’t think i’d enjoy them being dragged out like that. And some of the parts(the middle part of Uglies, which is mostly just Tally’s journey to the smoke) don’t have enough in them to constitute full movies.

    But I agree with you that they shouldn’t be three years apart! So sad-making if that happens! Its so annoying when directors do that, and make people wait, i get so angry! Maybe they should do them like they did Lord of the Rings. First, just shoot the first movie and see if it gets a good response(it obviously will), then if they do, shoot the second and third ones at the same time!

    Before I even began to read the series, my friend told me it was the best movie. I understand there hasn’t been a movie, but it’s what she said! The books are so detailed, but keep the story going quickly and smoothly, just as a movie should be! The upsetting part about this fact is that if there was to be a movie, the characters and setting would have to be addapted by everyone. We all have our own image of the story, but if some elements of each ones concience is shown, I’m certain it will be a bigger movie hit than a twilight

    No. Nana invites the 1000 most famous in her town, not the 1001 most famous people. Sure Tally would never show up but still. It is the Thousand Faces Party =P

    Wow, I just finished reading Uglies and I’m so happy to hear this news. I kind of related to Tally in the beginning of the book with the fact that I always wanted to be prettier. I am also an aspiring actress, so if you’re looking for someone with no experience I’d be glad to help! haha. I’m just kidding.. or am I? Anyway, I googled Uglies movie and some websites are saying it’s supposed to come out in 2011 but you don’t know if it’s going to happen so that’s kind of weird.

    The OTHER Tally Youngblood (and others): Hey guys, I dont mean to be a Debbie downer. I love the series and am super excited for the movie, and all you people are like “I will me soooo angry if (insert detail here) is not included in the movie!” and I dont want people to be disappointed or hate John Davis and company for it. Just as a warning, the producer whos being optioned Uglies is the same guy who did Eragon.

    Just to warn you.

    Thats why Im saying sometimes the movie is best if you judge it in itself, not by the books.

    If Hollywoods the devil, Im the advocate. ;-)

    PS: You didnt hurt my feeling, TOTY, its all good.

    PSS: You think Im being cynical now, you should here me talk about religion. Or politics. *shudder*

    PST: That was not an invitation to bring politics or religion up. Save it for boring family reunions (preferably with opposite political parties in attendance).

    4. Shay’s crudely written note ( mabe it could be written in the actress’ non-dominant hand unless that is, if they write with both hands. If that’s the case just let a little kid do it cause little kids aren’t the best handwriters.

    I just wanted to comment that I’m always a little worried when books are made into movies, but I am especially worried about Uglies. As much as I love the books and would love to see them made into movies, I[and every other fan of the books I'm sure] have a very clear view in my head of what everything should look like. With it being a world where the “pretties” are supposed to be perfectly beautiful, I don’t think there is a way to cast anybody that is “perfectly beautiful.” Even if there was a “perfectly beautiful” person in the world in someone’s eyes, that person could not be perfectly beautiful in somebody elses eyes, making the pretties virtually impossible to cast. Like you mentioned in “Bogus to Bubbly”, everybody has their own idea of beauty. The only way I think this would be pulled off is if it matched your[the author's] idea of perfect beauty since this world was initially created in your mind. Just a few thoughts. Thanks for reading them!

    ping to Aarika-la: the pretties need to hav big eyes and full lips and clear skin with like tiny pores. but i think the hardest thing wil be making everyone look almost exactly the same. but i think scott or someone else wrote that by making everyone pretty they buried really really beautiful ppl.

    so make of that wat u will cuz i dont want to explain and get pummeled by a bunch of complaints.

    haha i tried to press enter and ended up freaking out cuz i wz pounding on the CAPS lock key. thats the story of my life.

    i was thinking it would be awesome that before the movie starts like when the credits are begining to roll and such..tally should be talking like a voiceover… explaining the Rusties and the downfall of the human race..and the rise of a new begining of the cities and the pretty communties..and should end in a questioning something.. like a summary..but a way better verison than that of course…the the movie starts..

    I’m not demanding or saying that’s how it should start..but was just thinking about it and was wondering of all of you’s think?

I know it’s from Extras, but we’ve never done that before… and I also saw the face rank thingie… when I went on I had a 86, then I kept on refreshing the page till I had a 7 lol… so, ya, what’s up? I guess I’ve been kinda busy… like my neighborhood needs some serious help… they can’t do anything!! We like could barely start the swim team this year! And what’s up with our neighborhood 4th of July parade? Wait a minute- what parade? EXACTLY!!! Lol I mean, my neighborhood had some serious problems with event planning and organization. They planted a bunch of trees along the road- they all died. A long time ago. And no one’s done anythin’ about it. Watered them once, and that was it. I really want to have a 4th of July parade, but I doubt it’s going to happen, with like what, 2 days till Independance day now? *Sigh* I could’ve easily done something earlier, but I waited too long for them to do it themselves. Ugh!! I gotta do something! I just want to do so much stuff, but… I dont’ know what happens! I just get lazy, then I’m busy with swimming and band practice… gosh, I need to calm down… oh yeah I forgot I was typing a comment lol see? I talk with the keyboard!

    And it’s all because you’re not comfortable in your own skin.

    I really hope you look inside your heart. This is real life you don’t get to restart.

    Can’t turn back the clock once you make your decision.

    Game Over.

    I know that you’re lying what’s the truth to your mission?

    Game Over.

    That’s what you get for makin one wrong move.

    Game Over.

    You really shoulda known that you were gonna have to choose.

    Between the two of us. And I don’t know why I thought you were the one to trust.

    Game Over.

    You chose the wrong thing. But it’s no use clingin to the past.
    Can’t start all over. Trust me I knew this wouldn’t last….

    Tangled in this web of endless lies and dishonesty, I sure am glad that you chose him instead of me.

    (tOty speaking: I kind of imagine some kind of guitar solo here. LOL )

    Cause this whole entire friendship you were nothing but a dirty little liar.

    Now your world’s in turmoil and the flames are rising higher.

    You’d rather betraty us than think about tellin the truth.

    Well what goes around comes around and now it’s commin back on you.

    All because you weren’t comfortable in your own skin…

    This is a battle I won’t help you win.

    OMG! never zac efron, he would ruin the movie.

    MICHAELA MCMANUS as dr. cable.
    Emily Browning for ugly tally, definitely!
    Saoirse Ronan for ugly shay.

    all in all; there better be unknown actresses/actors, and there are a few things they absolutely HAVE to have in the movie.

    - cat vomit sky quote.
    - tally’s friendship scar
    - the whole costume thing, with the pig mask
    - the pretty generator thing, where you create your face.
    - shay’s note
    - the visit to dr. cable
    - heart locket.
    - hovercars and hoverboards and such.

    i can’t wait to see if the movie is made; and hopefully its not ruined like twilight.

    I can’t wait for the movie!!! Like I said earlier, the icing on the cake that will REALLY drive us fans nuts is to have as many original quotes from the book make it into the movie.

    The Twilight movie is a good example of what NOT to do. They casted horribly, (Robert Pattinson is so GROSS, plus, neither he or Kristen Stewart can act!! And since WHEN was Laurant described as black?? (no offense, I’m not racist, but he was described as FRENCH with an OLIVE complexion) cut out the most memorable parts of the book, and had terrible special effects.
    DO NOT let anyone who made Twilight in on Uglies, they will totally and completely RUIN IT!!!!!

    pop music only works in new pretty town if it is pop music of the future. so it would still have to be original music, and it should still not be written/performed by current top pop acts.

    i have to go reread the books, because i don’t even remember there being any radio/tv shows. maybe the new pretties make their own music.

    I liked RPattz before Twilight, mostly because of Harry Potter. He made a good Cedric…..but that was when he was normal. I guess though all those crazy teenage girls are taking a tole on him. He looks tired all the time. Poor poor RPattz. It seems as though that movie ruins actors lives. Dekota Faning has totally messed her self up now. It`s a shame cause she was really talented and now Twilight and the fans that come with her will haunt her for the rest of her life

    God I hope they don’t screw up the movie, it’s one of my favorite books ever. No famous people should play any part in my opinion, because it needs to be supernatural and not familar. But whatever

Johnny Depp looks alot what i imagined Zane to be except alot older in that movie, but he didnt look like that b4 i dont think, so it goes to show what you can do with makeup… and in pretties when tally is talking to dr cable, she says something like:”but why do it to their brains?” if she said that, then wouldnt dr cable know that tally knew about the operation? just saying… ttyl pplz! oh yeah and i rode my poni bareback today! i was very happy! and my new ipod is on the way from amazon, i need to get it b4 i go to michigan next week, and OW!

    heh this would be a great movie if they can get it right, with the right actors and the right script….but will they follow the book exclusively or will they add their(producers) own twist to the story.

    I hope that if they do go with making this movie then they stick to the story and dont go off like some other books-to-film have in the past by changing the story to suit themselves. The producers and directors have often runied a movie changing or excluding key facts to the story….

    BTW, Shay-la FTW

    *Please* don’t let the Pretties look like Rusty starving almost-pretties! I’m also concerned that because there aren’t “races” it will be an all-white cast, which I didn’t think was the point. Though Hollywood is so brain-missing I don’t think they can help themselves. Still, can the Pretties have some color to them at least?

    July 4th, 2009 21:02

    I’m soooooooo excited!!!!!!!! This has so much potential to being such a great movie!! Make sure you pick a really good director for the movie, someone who can really make the book come to life without changing it too much. Also, unknowns should DEFINITELY be cast for Tally, Shay and David, BUT don’t just pick people because they are fans. Have lots of open calls, but be sure to pick the BEST actors for the roles. That should be most important. Please stick to the story!! I think that for once, I trust the producers, because they are actually listening to the fans suggestions for once. If they make it a movie, I’m sure it’ll be great!!!!!!!! XD

    July 5th, 2009 08:38

    tally’s character should NOT be beautiful, she has to be average looking so when the change into a pretty is clearly obivious and drastic, so they can see the meaning behind it and which is also the same thing with pretties to hard-looking speicals.

  562. 562
    July 5th, 2009 08:51

    i think she has the look a tally..her name is Mia Wasikowska, she is a un-known actress.

    July 5th, 2009 17:30

    the actors for Tqally Shay and David should be random people that fit the descriptions. I know that sounds stupid but doesn’t it make sense? Also Croy and other smokies shoukd be like that. Same with An, Dex, Sussy, Maddy and Az. Also whoever plays David, his mom and dad should play Maddy and Az I think. Even if they like have to where color contacts wigs etc, itd be better becuuse they have a resemblance like in the book. Well yeah. Finnaly came up with a sign off.

    I’m soooooooooooooooo excited!!! I love the books so much and now they’re making it into a movie!!!!!!!!! I think Tally should be someone that’s not famous, or undiscovered. I think you should make Tally kind of what she looks like on the cover. David should be handsome, but not like “pretty” if you know what I mean. When I watched the teaser trailer my sister thought that she saw Nicole Kidman in there and I really don’t want her to play Tally. I think Dr. Cable should be Tilda Swinton but with black hair. I’m so happy!!!!

    ping to toty- r u serious!?!?

    general ping- I think actors/director/script person should read the books to fully understand the world, the people and the STORY. I’m not exactly sure how cat vomit pink looks btw. I still think Charlize Theron would be a good Dr. Cable, her look in Aeon Flux was all “I don’t want to hurt you but I will if I have to.” OOO and i jus got bogus to bubbly haven’t read it yet but is totally excited to.

    OOh and we all as fans have to understand that producers of hollywood like that so many fans are behind the books and what not, but they have to think about how much money actually making the movie would cost and if it would work. A book (don’t get me wrong the books are AWESOME) can create the most wonderful things but we all picture it in our heads, the producers would need to put it on the big screen which is hard to appeal to all of our views of Tally’s world. They consider if they could make the transitions from ugly to pretty to special, work and not gonna lie thats gonna be some pretty tough…….’nubs’????? =P anyway sorry for ranting I hope it is made into a movie though………

    Marra~la: I think Emily Browning is too pretty to play ugly Tally. No offense because you think that she should, but I definately (did I spell that right?) say “No way.”

    Everybody: Anyway, as far as casting, I know the actors are supposed to somewhat look like the characters, but I think more importantly, they should be able to act. And act well. Acting, I think, comes before looks. Because if someone can’t act, they shouldn’t be in the movie, and it doesn’t matter what they look like, ya know?

    Tally, David, Shay- someone undiscovered (not a household name that everyone knows!)
    Dr. Cable- Tilda Swinton but with black hair.
    plz make the actors be almost the same age as their character!!!!!!!!!!!!! also plz make tally and shay look nice but not like beautiful so when they change from ugly to pretty to special u can really tell the difference!

    no way, tally should not be blonde. It just doesn’t suit her character
    TALLY should have BROWN hair

    July 7th, 2009 14:24

    Saoirse Ronan also has the look and the age!!!!!!!!!
    and liv tyler can pull of beauty with cruetly and so can Tilda Swinton

    “or Sophia Bush as shay
    Hayden Christensen as Zane”

    these people are WAY TOO OLD, hayden christensen is a hottie no doubt about that, but what his like nearly thirty and same with sophia bush and she is way too pretty to play an ugly

    i think we as the fans need to make this “Uglies into a movie” more aware to the start a peptition on facebook…or get chain emails sending to heaps of your friends..saying something little bit about the book, that will get them interested..we need to make them AWARE!

    ping to kristina-la o ok thanks!
    ping to zanetallydavidshay i agree with ya! a lot of people that some fans r saying we be good range from like 20-40!!
    uglies into a movie i agree about the facebook thing and like all of my friends hav read them

  616. 616
    July 7th, 2009 21:18

    my list of what the movie needs!

    1. Tally, Shay, and David HAVE TO BE unknown actors/actresses. NO hollywood glamour girls!!!!! I’ll be soooo mad!!!!

    2. The actors/actresses should be almost the exact same age as the role that they are playing! NO 25 OR 30 year olds playing a 16 year old girl! that just ruins th movie!!!

    3. Hoverboards, flash tattoos, and all that stuff HAS TO LOOK REAL!!!!!

    4. Tally HAS to wear the pig mask when crashing the party that peris was at in the beginning!

    5. The sky NEEDS to be cat vomit pink in the beginning.

    6. DO NOT and i repeat do not make all the books into 1 movie!!!

    7. The hoverboard ride when Shay and Tally went on the rollercoaster whit the big gap.

    8. When Tally jumps off the cliff in specials!

    9.PLEASE do NOT ruin this movie like eragon was no where near as good as the book ( thats what i heard) and get better casting people than in twilight!!

    10. Script writer and directors and actors HAVE to read the books so that they know what their character is like!!!

  629. 629
    July 8th, 2009 07:23

    Ping to Amber-la: Yes, I had originally thought that was such a cool idea. I mean, stick him as a minor character that we see maybe once in the film, or at the pretty party that Tally sneaks into. Like that guy that says, “Have you seen the piggy?”

    Or something like that.

    Anyway, sorry for not responding earlier, I was busy working.

    July 8th, 2009 07:32

    Ping to Amy-la: Peeps is a good book, as well as the Last Days and So Yesterday. I have all of Scott’s books except for Leviathan, I Went and bought Mind-rain, even if it is only partially from Scott and mostly from contributors with their own stories.

    Ping to Meg-la: Those two books were really good, I’ve read them over and over, many times. I would definetly recommend them, if you loved the Uglies series, because it delves further into the books, and others offer their view on how Tally acted the way she did, why Shay hated and yet loved her, and the difference between Zane and David.

    Oh, and Sandra Bullock would make a good Dr. Cable, I agree. I always thought of Dr. Cable to be older anyway, and I am sure that with a little bit of make-up she would look the part. She is def. strong and mean enough.

  631. 631
    July 8th, 2009 09:46

    no sandra Bullock…..she may look the part but I dont think she could pull it off….I can’t see her being actually mean. I mean in the proposal(which was hillarious)it was like funny mean….not really believable…..if any of that makes sense….it did in my head

  632. 632
    July 8th, 2009 10:42

    ping to alix-wa: i dont think sandra bullock would make a good dr. cable… she isn’t scary enough… dont get me wrong im a big fan of her but even in the proposal where she was supposed to be mean at the beginning she really wasn’t…

    o! and ping o scott-la: tally-wa should defiantly be played by someone unknown… or even better! she should be played by someone from open auditions… ;) i cant see anyone famous as tally-wa

  633. 633
    July 8th, 2009 13:55’re 100% right

    the people that did the casting for harry potter were brilliant..they need to do with uglies..i think thats why harry potter was good..

    anfdthere issues were relatable to their’s like someone 25 year old pretending to be a 17-year old having boy’s just crazy..

    casting should be the right ages and the look of the characters and MOST important is TALENT!!.. i don’t care if you have to make them wear a wig..they have to have TALENT!

    even if there arent sequels( not saying that i don’t want there to be..i do) but it must end with that quote!!

    Another ping to uglies.: Yes Tally and David do need to have chemistry. Because if they don’t, the story won’t go together as well, ya know? Also Zane and Tally need to have chemistry, because they get each other through difficult situations and they mean alot to each other.

    July 9th, 2009 03:48

    Ping to Tabea-la: Yeah, I was thinking the same, but I never really thought out for Dr. Cable. Now that I do, I know that it must be someone who naturally looks cruel and pretty at the same time, and who’s unknown, or atleast not that known as an actress.

    Ping to !!!!!: Of course, I agree. The movie can’t end unless she says that, final thing you hear and see is Tally walking up to the warden and saying, “I’m Tally Youngblood, make me pretty” and then it would black out or something.

    If the books end a certain way, i.e Scott making the last word in everybook correspond to the name of the sequel, then so should the movies.

If any of you ever write a sequal or even a “aftermath” of the books, PLZ PLZ PLZ email it to me at , I am very “uglies, prettys, specials, extras” obsessed and i would LOVE to read anything about the books, even if they’re not by Scott.”

    I hope that (if it is a movie) that they make it right. I don’t like movies that take away from what the book has to give. I think that a movie should be the same as the book, nothing taken away but I guess that if something is to be added then it mush be something that could have happened in the book. That’s what I think all of this so far.

  668. 668
    July 10th, 2009 10:07

    Well that sure is exciting!
    I really do hope that they make it a movie, and if they do, they make it right. I wouldn’t be too mad if they get a few things wrong, because all movies based off of books have things wrong with them! xD
    But they should get most things right. :3

    July 10th, 2009 13:07

    Wow the casting crew is gonna have a hard time choosing actors to play characters…and i notice that a few people agree with not choosing older people to play young roles like Tally, Shay, Zane etc. The people need to be teenagers to make the movie look realistic…possible age for Dr cable, Davids parents???

    Not jumping ahead or anything but if they ever get to making the trilogy of books into a movie series, then the face tat that Tally has on the cover of Specials needs to look real. So if anyone has read “Bubbly to Bogus” then they would know that it was inspired by the traditional Maori tribal tatoos :P

    Where would be a good place for filming the forrest scenes?

    Hint-Hint: New Zealand^^

  670. 670
    July 10th, 2009 15:43

    This sounds amazing! There really isn’t much for me to say that hasn’t already been said – I completely agree with all your notes about unknowns for Tally, Shay and David – though a Hollywood spunk would fit particularly well for Zane, don’t you think? ;)

    Make sure to hold your open auditions in Australia! NSW, definitely! :D

    Also, filming in Australia would be amazing as well – as the outback terrain (particularly in NT) would fit in with the Smoke’s descriptions so well. That’s just my personal opinion though!

    Some quotes that NEED to be included in the movie:

    “I’m Tally Youngblood. Make me pretty.”


    “What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.”

    I seriously cried when I read that. David is so sweet!

    I may post some others when I think of them…

    haha! see what I did there? Anyway, I’ve got my eye on you Scott-la. And NOT in the good sense of the metaphor. Or at least I THINK that was a metaphor…

    Oh great. Scott, you’re in a deathtrap here. Teenage girls are the WORST fanbase in the universe. Once you mess a little something up, they’ll cry and whine and just explode. They don’t know what they’re talking about most of the time. I say it’s a bad move to involve them in the movie-making process. Once you choose a Tally, I swear to God there’s going to be a petition that alludes, “she’s not ugly enough,” “not asymmetrical enough.” Good luck producers, you’re going to need it.

    ping to Katie-la AND tOty haha! that’s the same with me about the teacher saying “put that book down” but i always put it down cuz i only read in class 4 math and reading bcuz my teacher 4 those classes r kinda scares me… actually she scares me A LOT!!!! i finished uglies, pretties, specials, and extras all n like 1 week cuz i had nothin else 2 do. *sigh*

    My congratulations on your pending film debut! As one of your adult readers (I just finished “Extras”), I am thrilled to see that your work is being recognized by so many. It is a great honor to have your work optioned by hollywood, and I wish you all the luck in the world.
    I absolutely loved the entire series. Your characters are so real, that it is impossible not to become ingrained in their lives through out these novels. I even found my self speaking the lingo! My husband was confused at first, but I explained it all to him, and now he wants to read the series (hooray for me!)
    I also enjoyed the fact that your main character’s name is Tally.
    My oldest and closest friend shares that name, and I have gone as far as calling her Tally-wa (she introduced me to the series, so it seemed appropriate.)
    I was a little sad to have finished the series, so today I went to the bookstore and picked up the first novel in the “Midnighters” series.
    I also saw that you are releasing the first novel in a new series this October…can’t wait.
    Thanks again, Scott! I look forward to reading your other novels.

    I made a fan trailer for the first book UGLIES after reading the last three books! :D I’d really love it if you could take a look!

    I wonder what the hoverboard designs are gonna look like? That’ll be interesting to see!

    Ack, can’t wait! :D Hope to hear more news about the UGLIES movie! ;D Oh and your new book looks really awesome! I have to read it! :D

Wanna know something KERAZZZZZY that happened to me yesterday? (sorry I’m not spazzy on sugar right now, I’m just glad to be back on my beloved computer. I still haven’t picked out a name 4 this thing…) Anyway,here goes:

    Yesterday I was watching Harry Potter and playing on my Wii Fit and my doorbell rang so I went to see who it was so I looked outthe window & saw that there were these 3 dudes in masks. then they opened the door and walked in and said “Drop the Wii remote” and I was like, “Where are we going?” and they said, ” Don’t ask questions.” and dragged me out the door. At that point my mom came out of the office and handed them my swim bag and flip flops. THEN, I walked outside and saw this van and that it was my church van so I opened the door and got in and saw all my friends from church were there so I got in the back empty seat w/ my church friend Mitchell and then we all went to the van driver Gardner’s house (this really cool guitar player @ our church.)and he lives in this REALLY awesome fancy-shmancy neighborhood and we got to swim in his pool with the rest of the whole intire Youth Group. We played volleyball too and I hit my new friend Maryann in the forehead w/a tennis ball.LOL! Also, since Gardner’s pool has a ledge and a waterfall we jumped in the pool from the ledge. Later we had dinner@his house, went to church, played our church olympics stuff, and made a really suckish looking sign. In other words, it was AWESUM! (Wow my grammar totally sucks 2day.) Anyway, hope this story was random and amusing. I just remembered some thing for The List.
    Not going to # since I don’t know where we are @ this point…

    Tally’s toothbrush pill No one wants 2 brush their teeth right?

    That’s all I be-gettin rite now.. I have something random to post but I’m gonna post the first sentence or two of the book I’m writing it’s all I’ve got so far: ********************
    Chapter One

    I lay in a heap between my mattress and comforter thinking about a time when I was happy. Nothing came. Misery. I thought Story of my life.


    just to let u know “misery” & “story of my life are hitallisized (hopefully you can tell what Imean from that awful spelling lol ! :) )

    I would have freaked out if random people knocked on my door and told me to drop the wii remote o.O
    Haha cool. My youth group had a cookout at our youth minister’s house, but I was on vacation when that happened *cry*
    …aaaandd… I’m writing a ‘book’ too! The reason its in quotes is because I never get anywhere past the first chapter/story theme.
    But I have like 2 chapters done of the one I’m doing now! Its sorta-ish like a mix of uglies&twilight (even though I never meant it to be like that >_< ) It takes place in the future, and it shows that no matter how hard we’ve tried we haven’t made any real progress, like no hoverboards or anything like that. But there was an ‘end of the /first/ world’ and the girl who’s the main character is an immortal and its about how everyone has an ‘other,’ or like another person that completes them, like a mate, but not always for love…
    …aaaandd… yeah. huh. That’s it. I’m too lazy to go back and read the 200+ comments that I’ve missed since my last visit, so if we’re still on who-should-play-who then I must not be too late. Haha… yup :D
    Neopets has taken up my time mostly since it made fox news… but that’s a whoooooole different story. One that I’m too lazy to type right now and I bet no one cares. So its nice to be back, thanks, and I’ll try REALLY hard to stay this time :D

    ping to Sarah-la:OMG! A couple of weeks before my school let out I thought of the same book idea but like you, it’s sitting in my school binder out of touch, and unfinished. Writers block sucks.Anyway, if I ever complete the first chapter of the story I posted you, (I like to call it “My New and Untitled Story”) I could email it to you or post it here 4 you to see. It started off being called “The Cut Ones” but that was before I read Uglies and stuff about The Cutters (afraid of plagerizing) so now it’s about… a world- or maybe in the future- where some of people’s shadows are like, evil and a girl, I think her name should be called Marleah (spelled “Marleah” or “Marleeh” or “Marlee”-haven’t decided. and pronounced Mar-lee) finds out about it and later in the “Book” they want to kill her because she knows too much, and then the shadows want her to become one of them. Very sloppy I know… Guess I should get out my trusty 6th grade Language class notebook.
    Speaking of Wii remotes, did u hear when the Wii first came out people didn’t wear the wrist straps and the remotes flew into the Tv? I was shocked and I was like, ” What the crack?”and “That poor fancy-shmancy one hundred thousand dollar TV!” it even showed pictures! What a strange strange world we live in!

    Harry Potter wasn’t as great to me as the others. I think it’s because I actually read this book and knew what was going/supposed to happen and the movie didn’t really satisfy me……….omen?

    Hello, Fellow Bloggers(:
    Nobody says hi to poor Amber-la… :(
    Anyhoo, I am close to finishing Specials and I think Scott-la should write another book, to tell what happens to everyone in the end, right? Like Frizz and Aya, Ren, Hiro, Shay-la, Tally-wa, Fausto, and David..
    I’d like to see this one.

    Hi Amber-la :D
    Ping to the general public:
    Never read Harry Potter, never seen the movies… please don’t tell me I’m like inhuman or crazy because my friends tell me that enough Dx

    Ping to tOty:
    Yeah… I actually call my ‘book’ “untitled~” Just like that, lower-case ‘u’ and ~ and all. My friend keeps encouraging me to work on it… but I’m just about out of ideas, but since she always has some I call her my cure for writer’s block. I have it typed, so I can email it to you if you want… The only real problem I have with it right now is that I don’t have a name for the main character… I can’t find one that seems right, and I feel like she needs a 100% unique name… lol and I keep thinking ‘Renesmee!’ But my email is if you want to email it to me (:

    Chapter 1

    I’ve been sitting on my bed, staring at the ceiling, for what seemed like ages. All this time I’ve been thinking about how alone, and abandoned I was. After what had happened, all my friends, and even my family had left me. They all thought I was a liar, and a traitor. There was no way to change their mind.

    thats all i got. hmmm… im trying to decide when i said they all thought i was a liar and a traitor, should i change it to they all thought i was a freak. it’s clear that i am unwanted.
    yeah well i haven’t really thought of a plot yet, just writing as i go, which mite be a bad thing…hmmmmm…

    I don;t know if this helps any, but when I get a story idea for a book, I usually dream of it. Literally, fall asleep and dream of it. I read a ton of *insert what sounds like an interesting book topic here* books/articles and then listen to music while I sleep, and I get an idea usually. Like when I came up with the one I just had, I actually read Breaking Dawn and Uglies (again) before I went to sleep, then listened to my iPod while I slept, and I dreamt up a movie trailer for that one, but I revamped it a little because in my dream the main character was a vampire lol.

    also i think that they’re sound might be good for the uglies, but for specials it should be something hard because she’s strong and everything, like some SOAD

    I can’t even come up with anyone for Tally though. That is such a hard part to cast, she’d have to be absolutely PERFECT for it and still I have no one.

    I am so excited! Ever since i started reading the book, i have always imagined the book a movie. I think that Angelina Jolie would be PERFECT for Dr.Cable. I would enjoy having someone undescovered as Tally but not Shay. If Uglies does come out into a movie, i will treat all of my friends that have read and have not read it, to see that movie. Most of my friends always took liitle sneaks at my book when i was reading it. Since i talked about it so much, they went ahead and read it and now they’re on Extras. Since finding this book and talking about it, people have read it too. Can’t wait!

    How’s the iPod-saving going? And David should be… sort of semi-known. Like had 1 big part that he might be known for and other little ones. Like Kristen Stewart was in a few movies with little parts, but she had a sort of big one in /Catch That Kid/.

    I’m reminding you all again… Please no Disney people!

    Umm, hey
    For all those that hated Twilight, i think to appreciate it you have to have been in Bella’s postion and although that seems weird it’s probably true, ok here several pointers that I think are worth pointing out-

    the film should not be one of those 3 in 1 jobs as they never work, just look at a series of unfortunate events, and i can only imagine what cirque du freak is going be like, which is a shame because i really enjoyed those books.

    Tilda Swinton would be an awesome Dr. Cable, though isn’t she a little too i hate to say it… Ugly for the role? Considering she should have had the operation… but then again i couldn’t see anyone like jolie or knightly in the role either. Helen mirren would be awesome but shes too old for it :(

    Someone also said that Shane West would be a good david. trust me, google image him, he’s very close to how i imagine david. Zane on the other hand would be trickier, someone i know would be ideal for him, and he’s sixteen in january, though he looks about fourteen to me. If i said a Jonas looking type character would everyone scream at me? It’s just how I see Zane in my head.

    As for Tally and Shay, they would probably have to be open audtioned, though wouldn’t Dakota Fanning be a good shay if she weren’t in the golden compass? (That film sucked so badly, but also because she’s in Twilight)

    I would have said Rob Pattinson would have made a good david if it weren’t for his role as edward (Personally I thought of edward as being more like Jackson Rathbone, and Rob Pattinson being more like Jasper but thats a diiferent story)

    Again, if Jasper Rathbone were not in twilight I would have though he’d be perfect as Zane (He’s gorgous when he’s not all vampired up, google image him as well :) ) but tally would most deffinatley have to open audtioned.

    I see her as being quite short, burnette (Messy midlength hair and a bit of a skater type if im honest) quite chubby and most deffinately tempermental! the actress would need to be very similar to her in real life to pull if off, otherwise she would most deffinately be slated. Tally is a complex character and I wouldn’t trust someone to be her on acting ability alone to be honest.

    The perfect song of the sound track would have to be love steals us from loneliness by idlewild. It’s simply perfect, though golden by fall out boy would also be quite good in the films as well. another band i would like to see in the soundtrack is hadouken with declaration of war (if you don’t know any of these we7 them, its worth it) but for the opening sequence of the first one, (which i’m already seeing as tally hover boarding through pretty-ville) could easily be pendulum.

    Finally DO NOT CHANGE THE NAME. Angus thongs and perfect snogging did that. There is no need for it, just dont bother.

    Long live the smoke-

    ping to Pony-la: Haven’t tried seltzer water but I have tried fizzy grape juice. While we’re on the subject of water, I made up a random quote from my accidental injestion of lake water:

    ”Lake Water: Drinking water with a hint of dirt”

    I for one think that’s hilarious!

    Good rant to luv_david! I think we’ve kicked her out 4 good !

    Anyway, I’m off to type up (or try to type up) some of my story. Sorry if I missed pinging you! Peace, Love, and Dirt flavored water! (Couldn’t you guys see that on a T-shirt?) hahaha! Bye y’all. :)

    Ping to Sarah-la (338): I don’t see why auditions in Canada would affect anything. For one, unless you’re from Newfoundland/Labrador, you won’t really have an accent. I know a few people who live down south in the states, and we talk exactly the same, no accent whatsoever.

    I also write stories and stuff, I have an account on deviantart, and you can check me out there, my username is Intechnical, and I have a couple dozen stories so far, just little things I write up once in a while. Just click on my name to go there. ;)

Isn’t my thing…anyway here’s a magical little thing called a youtube link that will take you to the site

    Twilight & The Uglies series are my favorite series in the world, they are literally my bibles! I love Tally, I can really relate to her. This would be such an amazing movie (if done right). I’ll be honest, 99% of the time books are better left as books, but, I don’t know,… it’ll be intresting to see what happens. I completly agree with people who are saying the cast shouldn’t include anyone famous, exept for Dr. Cable. I think Angelina Jolie would make a great Dr. Cable. & I’m 16 now, so whenever I hear about a casting call for this movie I am so there! Bye Scott.

  864. 864
    July 29th, 2009 05:13

    Even though the movie people think that someone that’s not famous should play Tally, I think that Ashley Greene from the twilight movies could play her post-pretty operation. Definitely someone unknown for “ugly” Tally but Ashley Greene looks kind of like the girl on the cover of Uglies and after the operation, Ashley looks a lot like the girl I envisioned Tally as. Check out her IMDB pictures and try to see that she looks like Tally.
    I still have no thought of who should be Dr. Cable though. I don’t want it to be the worlds prettiest actress because Dr. Cable needs to be beautiful but also with a strict face. Using Angelina Jolie wouldn’t serve Dr. Cable justice. Maybe pick a doctor off of a show or movies. They are usually beautiful but serious.
    P.S. We all know this WILL become a movie!! Everyone who has read it has seen it as a movie in their head!
    P.S.S. I don’t know any La’s or Wa’s to put on the end of my name! Anyone have any ideas please?!

    heyyy, ok. so when are they going to do the casting?
    and when they do they should bring the auditions to Toronto, and make it open auditions. Cuz, acting is like, my DREAM! and everyone wants a random to be Tally, i am a random :D
    lol. i do not have an agent or anything tho. i am 14, but i could pass as 16. cuz if they get someone who is ACTUALLY 16 then they’ll get too old for the future movies.

    here is why i think i should be Tally,
    I am really average looking. nothing special at all. i am tall, and i have long brown hair and green eyes. pretty normal sounding, eh?
    i know i can act, and i’ve read all the books so i’ve got the character down. and this would be the best thing EVER to happen to me. but i guess it doesn’t matter totally if i get the part or not, i just want a chance.
    so i want open auditions and for them to come to Toronto, Canada.

Well, I like him, it’s just that the news about him is sooo flippin annoying! *tears foam finger to shreads out of MJ news irritation.* Weird I just sounded like my youth pastor Wade. He says “flippin” alot. Maybe he likes napolean dynamite. Everyone calls me napoleon dynamite and I HATE IT!!!! *imagines all her make-funners as foam fingers and sends them into wood chippers and hears them making satisfying foam finger destroying sounds.* Just because I talk like that. I CAN’T HELP IT!! It’s not some fault a stupid doctor cut off my vocal cord when I was a baby having an opperation and OK now it’s getting kind of personal and off topic so now back to MJ. The day that he died there was this big bombing thing in Iraq and this woman’s son died in the bombing and could’nt get any info on it cause news on MJ’s somewhat unimportant I.M.H.O death was holding up the whole intire world’s stupid fraggy news stations.
    Don’t get me wrong. He was a good musician with neat music and a rather…odd face but he was cool and I just wish that the American public (along with whoever else) should just get over it. Hey I’m not racist, I have a right to express my own opinion and since I live in these United States of America instead of some dictatory country like Cuba, I can do that. anyway, this is random, but I need to look for pokemon pictures.

But by chance that you may get the part, then you are very lucky. But if you think about it, they will most likely choose someone who has gone to school for acting or drama, or atleast has some experience in acting, ya know? I dunno, though. Maybe I’m wrong. Guess that makes it a one-in-a-million chance then, huh? Anyway good luck trying to get the part, I’m sure your chance is as good as anyone’s.

    I read these books over 5 times each. I NEVER re-read books, my parents know that. I read a book, and it stays on my shelf collecting dust for the rest of its life. This series is the first books in my life to be ever read once, twice and up to 5 times and more becuase I lost track. I never read Harry potter more that once, same with twilight, they just rest on the shelf. These books DESERVE to be put into a move. If theyre worried on no buyers, AS IF! You got all your fans backing you up here~! And I’ll tell my friends to watch it too! I’d buy the DVD and see the movie atleast 3 times! DONT WORRY! THIS WILL BE A SUCCESS!!!

    I think it would be such a rockin movie. And as a suggestion…wouldnt be awesome if angelina jolie was dr. cable. I think she has the perfect attitude for the part and a “special” face. ya…. leave me to my daydreaming of uglies movie…..

  893. 893
    August 3rd, 2009 11:07

    I think Kristin Chenoweth (seen in Pushing Daisies) would be a GREAT Dr.Cable. She could bring the stern voice more than anything.


    Tally should DEFINATELY be an unknown, found through casting calls and not previous movies/shows some random teen has done.
    (Same goes for Shay)

    I haven’t really developed an opinion for the roles of David or Peris yet…
    but some of the people that have been suggested for their roles have been alright with me.

    PLEASE, Scott. The MINUTE you find out if there’s going to be open auditions, PLEASE oh PLEASE tell us! Ever since I read this post, I can’t stop thinking about how much alike Shay and I are. That would pretty much make my life complete if I were to get her part :)
    David needs to be someone that a teenaged girl can look at and say, “Oooh, he’s cute!” but definitely not “Hot”
    Gotta post later, okay??


  905. 905
    August 4th, 2009 07:04

    so i watched anna-la’s trailer and i realized that Tricia Helfer is like perfect for dr. cable. her character in battlestar is perfect for the dr. she is so beautiful but as she proved in bsg she can be a scary manipulative bleepoid. she is 35 so it’s not like she is a 20 year old playing this scary woman and not an older actress like tilda.

It’s about a civilization that lives underground cause people destroyed the earth and now they have to leave it alone for awhile, so it’s also kinda uglies-ish too. the author is Jeanne Duprau.

    Hola Senyors & Senyoritas!

    My favorite book series is the Warriors
    Series. It is about 4 clans of cats in a forest who fight and go on journeys. The clans are called Thunderclan, Riverclan, Windclan, and Shadowclan. The first series is about a male house cat named Rusty who has always wanted to go to the forest. One night, he is wisked away by his own curiosity into these woods.
    There, he meets a clanborn cat named Graypaw who tells him all about life in the forest. Rusty is intreed, and later on into the chapter or next he gets a special offer from the leader of Thunderclan, Bluestar. She asks him if he would join Thunderclan and live as an apprentince. What do you think Rusty will choose? You have to read the book to find out!
    ( P.S. The first book is called ”Into the Wild by: Erin Hunter. There are 4 series so be sure to check the spine of the book BEFORE you start to read it!

    did u like it? I pretty much copy and pasted the whole thing, but who cares? anyway bye :D

    ok seriously people this will be a disaster if made into a movie. Everyone has their own ideas on what supermodel beauty is and it won’t work if you change actors from ugly-pretty-special. It would be impossible to get the clothes language and cities right (except smoke) and they only hope would be tons upon tons of cging and special effects, which would be horrible. I love the Books, but i think the movie would discourage anyone from reading them.

    I’m soo sorry. I’ve been soo dang busy the last few days and weeks. (I have school starting tomarrow waaaaah! :cry: ) I’m going to get back to that soon but I just got another (2) story ideas. I saw this insanely scary moon when I was on vacation that forgot to tell you guys about. It. Was. RED. It looked like something out of some horror storyline so I got the opening sentence in my head then and there. I was thinking about some nueclear war thing going on, (my OTHER story) but for now, here’s a sentence from my other books: EVERYONE ELSE PLEASE FEEL FREE TO READ!

    Book 2: The beach was still and silent. It seemed that even the ocean waves had been muted by the cloak of night. I tried to search for the horizion, but the small line that parted sea and sky was indistinguishable. The only light came from the small pinpricks of stars. And the moon. A dark, deep, blood red color that barely penetrated the darkness. If I were normal I would’ve run scared down the dirt road, my feet sore from stepping on jagged pebbles and darkened brown by the soil. But instead I sat and watched. From what was happening at the moment, I needed all the information for the future I could get. Staring at the moon, either normally or abnormally colored was bound to trigger that.

    * * * * * * *

    That’s not all I’ve got, but I need to go get ready. It’s meet the teacher day I’ll write more to ya later! :D
    P.S could you type your email again for future refrences please? Thanks! :D

    This is so exciting to see that the movie is progressing, You have done a really good job Scott.
    To be honest, I think every uglies fan thinks they would be a good tally or Zane…..
    but we can all dream…….
    And are you American, cause if you are then the movie would most likely be made in America. It would be so cool to be in the movie, but i doubt parents would let me fly from Australia to America for the Audition….
    You rock!!!

    August 14th, 2009 02:58

    i am very excited to hear that the movie is being considered. i love the series soooo much!! :D
    i have to agree that i would love to see that most of the actors/actresses for the movies should be unknowns, except for maybe Dr. Cable.
    i would love to be able to audition for the movies, but they never seem to do auditions outside of America that lasts long.
    i really believe that these books would be great movies!! :D
    keep on writing great books!!!

    You don’t know how excited I was to find out that this book was going to be a movie!!!! I kept thinking of it as a movie as I read the books. And I totally agree with what it says about Shay and Tally being unknowns, but Dr. Cable being somebody famous. Ha! I liked whoever said Nicole Kidman. But they have to get her right!!!!!!!!!!!! She is my absolute favorite character, and I already totally have this picture of her in my head.

    Personally I disagreed with some of the illustrations in Bogus to Bubbly, but whatever :)

    Finally, a suggestion: For Tally, I (but I don’t know about everone else) already have a picture of her in my head as the girls on the cover of the books. So see if they can act! :)

  978. 978
    August 14th, 2009 21:16

    Oh, and I think the movies should just be totally lifted from the books. Change none of the dialogue, don’t deleter any scenes, etc. It would make the movie about four hours long, but I would definitely sit through that!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry, I’m just a crazy fan. :)

    i’m really excited at the possibility of the movie.
    when i first found out that someone bought the rights i threw a happy fit :)
    and then i went and told my friends right away
    i have to say these are some of my favourite books (favourite of the series is almost to close to call because they are all shockingly different for one series, but i think i would have to say specials)
    and putting these amongst my favourites says a lot because i am the type of person who reads every type of book (classics like The Catcher in the Rye, series’ like Harry Potter or Twilight, too many books nobody has ever heard of to count) and i can almost always find something significant that even though i love the book, i hate it too. but not with the uglies pretties and specials (i love extras too) i love them, every time something happens to make me want to hate the book, its followed with reasons that make me see just how necessary it was, and then i love the books that much more…and yes i realise that makes just about no sense.
    thanks for amazing books, and i can’t wait for the (potential) amazing movies

    Regarding Dr. Cable:

    Personally, I think that Sigourney Weaver is so good at playing evil people. And I loved her in Holes, which is currently the best book-turned-movie, in my opinion. And Nicole Kidman pulled off the whole beautiful but evil thing really well in the Golden Compass. But please stop saying Angelina Jolie! I think she is too ugly and young. And absolutely NOT taylor lautner 4 fausto! or blake lively (imho)

    And I love the Giver! I always thought I was the only one. :)

  1011. 1011
    August 25th, 2009 05:17

    I agree no angelina Jolie…I can’t stand her….I did think Tilda swinton but she is actually reather ugly…its just that she looks so special…I like Nicole Kidman…she has beauty and a special look

    it looks though that we have a top three choices for Dr.C what are your votes?

    Nicole Kidman
    Tilda Swinton
    Angelina Jolie

    This is really something. Every book I’ve read and loved and favorited growing up ALWAYS turns into a movie some way or another: Ella Enchanted, City of Ember, Hoot, & Twilight. I heard Maximum Ride was also hitting the big screen and now Uglies! My #1 favorite thus far. And for some reason I have this really, really big desire more than ever to be a part of this production. (I loved Extras, by the way!)

    *Reminded me of the Smoke
    **Reminded me of someone who went to the Smoke and decided they didn’t like it so they went back to the city

It’s also used in the Indonesian language at the end of a word to sort of emphasize it or to show sarcasm or something. For example, my mom 2 minutes ago said “itu la!” Which roughly translates into “That, duh!”

    Hey! I am 13 and I love the “Uglies” Series so much i wish there was more books, becuase I loved all of the books and i read them all in 5 months!!! The only book that was good but not great was the “Extras.”That at book was my least fav because Tally and all of the other main characters were not in it that much. And the book didn’t have many big advenres like in the other books.
    Out of the whole series “Pretties” Was my fav becuase it was very interesting and advenerous.I loved how Tally had David on her mind but had Zane right beside her. I also love how she finds all of these things she never knew ( like when she was an ugly.)
    I can not wait until the movie comes in ealry 2011 because i love seeing movies that where books at first. Like the wizard of Oz.
    I love all of your books Scott!!

    I just finished Specials; I am officially BEYOND in love with this trilogy. I’m about to pick up “B to B” to bone up on my background information! Though I am worried & skeptical to read Extras: I can’t imagine an Uglies novel without Tally Youngblood written in to it.

    And yes! I couldn’t be more thrilled about an upcoming movie! As an aspiring actress (a 21 year old who resembles a 15 year old… unfortunately), my dream would be to play Tally. Part of the reason the books are so addicting to me- perhaps- is due to the shocking personalities similarities that Tally and I share.

    I think Emily Browning resembles Shay as an ugly: wide set eyes & lips that are nearly already as full as a pretty’s. And everyone seems to agree on Tilda Swinton for Dr. Cable but honestly, she’s more of a Maddy: stern, informed, worldly… and with a formerly-but-no-longer-pretty face. Dr. Cable has to be frighteningly BEAUTIFUL. And older… according to Specials, she’s almost a crumbly after she’s cured, right??

    Anyway, kudos on the excellent series, and definitely post about open auditions. That would be fabulous.

    PS- write more about Tally & David!

    My friend texted me yesterday, “There’s going to be an Uglies movie!! Check the site!!” I have to admit, I haven’t been here in a while, but now I have a feeling I’ll become addicted to posting on here again! I’m so incredibly excited about this, and thrilled that the movies-people seem so great! I always hoped that I could be the director of this movie when I finish with film school, because I have such incredible visions for it, but I’d be happy to miss the opportunity as long as they outshine my visions with even better ones! They HAVE to do it, and if they don’t, I will! This book really is already a movie practically, they way there’s always something happening but not so much that it has to be twisted around to fit into 2 hours. And every setting described is so beautiful in different ways… I just can’t wait! This HAS to happen. Get Chris Columbus to direct! I’m sure he’s expensive, but I think he’d be so perfect for this book-to-film adaptation! I hope that when I see it in theaters(which I know I will, it’s too amazing not to make it there eventually) it blows me away. I have no doubt that it will.

    This is great! I thought the books were amazing, so I’m hoping the movies will be just as good! I agree with what most people are saying- go with unknown actors. It really does make the movie seem more real and you don’t already have an idea in your head of- hey that actor/actress doesn’t fit that part because he/she played blank.. And I also agree that the setting is really important because we all have a picture in our minds of what it should look like from reading the books.

    Kudos to the producers for taking on such a challenging movie. Its going to be hard to get all of the cool effects (hoverboards etc)

    Good luck!

    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
    Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your young men will see visions,

    I think it would be a great movie if they did it right. But, chances are, they aren’t going to spend enough money on it in order to make it look like it’s supposed to. It would be an extremely difficult movie to do. I mean, the technology, for instance. How much money are they really willing to spend on all te great technology needed for the film? I don’t think it’ll go anywhere, personally. It’s a nice thought, but if it ever comes out I’ll be extremely surprised.
    But I’m keeping my fingers crossed in hopes of a wonderful movie with competant actors. [:

    ping! XD to The OTHER Tally Youngblood! ;)
    I have a program called iMovieHD6 in my Applebook, and I use that to cut and paste and edit all the clips that I think resemble the characters or chapters of the book! ;) Most of the time I download the clips from Youtube, but sometimes I download them from other places as well! ;) I hope that helps! ^^ Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions! ;D -hugs-

    OMG this news is so crap-my-pants-making!!!

    hope they really do make the movie!!!

    i will be there @ midnite with my dad cuz none of my friends have read the books… but the first actress that came to mind was a specialfied tilda swinton for dr. cable!!!! and for some odd reason, khloe kardashian reminds me of tally…. not that i want her for the part, oh no! but i really hope they get a good director cuz i am a total twilighterand she did NOT do a very happy-making job =( but twilight and uglies are my top two favorite books in my life.

    they better not screw this up like they did with the first twilight movie. very DISSAPOINTMENT-MAKING.

    BUT lets hope they get a good director like steven spielberg or christopher nolan or michael bay or james cameron!!! oh yes.

    cross your fingers and toes they pull through and make this GOOD!!!

    BEST WISHES SCOTT!!! you got faithful people behind you.

    lets do this guys!!! yeah. c(= go tally

    October 11th, 2009 21:50

    Wow. That was pure insanity.

    Let me just preface this by saying I don’t mean to sound mean and I know I don’t have a right to tell you what to do (among other things, I’m new here), but I think someone’s got to say it:

    Though luv_David (who posted a few months ago) may have seemed rude, she had a point.

    I know you guys are really excited about this, just as I am, and it’s perfectly fine to express that with, you know, smiley faces and exclamation points and messages of encouragement. However, please remember whose blog this is. This is Mr. Westerfield’s blog. Sure, the blog is kept for your sake, but please respect it.

    By respect I mean stick to the topic.

    Please don’t go off on long tangents about what’s going on in your lives and why you hate/love Twilight.

    Look, I don’t like Twilight either. In fact, I hate it. But this blog isn’t about Twilight. It’s about Uglies and a possible Uglies movie. And if you guys want to talk about all this and what’s going on in your lives and carry on private conversations, that’s what forums are for. Search “Uglies Forum” on Google, and I’m sure you’ll find something. If you don’t like that, I’ll even make a forum for you.

    By respect I also mean actually listening to the author.

    He asked us to refrain from asking him about casting and such. We all knew that, but many people did it anyway. The movie isn’t even to a point where they would consider casting yet, as far as I know. If Scott asks us not to obsess over casting, don’t obsess over casting.

    I hate to be a pessimist, but please remember: we don’t even know if/when this movie is going to go through. Just because the producers are listening to the author more than usual doesn’t mean that he’s going to be able to tell them what to do or that he will have as much power as you may think.

    He may be able to suggest things, but that doesn’t mean he can go up to Angelina Jolie and say, “Hey, you, be in my movie.” Things are more complicated than that. He is the professional author. They are the professional movie makers.

    There are over 1000 comments on this post as of right now. And you are all making suggestions and stuff that are really great. But do you really think that Scott is going to read all of these? It took me about five hours to get through 600 comments before giving up.

    Scott’s a busy guy. He may love us, his fans, but do you really think he’s going to read all of these? If we descend from serious suggestions to mindless chatter, I doubt he’s going to pay much attention anymore. I’m not even going to post my suggestions here, because I don’t think he’ll end up reading them.

    Please try to be a little more mature next time he posts something about the Uglies Movie. He’s looking for serious suggestions, not small-talk and irrelevant arguments! We’re lucky enough that he has an active blog at all!

    So please consider taking all of the chatter to a forum of some sort if you want your suggestions to be heard.

    I’m not trying to criticize or single anybody out. These are my suggestions.

    I’m a new uglies fan but i love it all the same and it made me totally bubbly. I just started extras and it was really happy-making. Scott was so not brain-missing when he wrote extras. Well i just read that Uglies will finally be a movie and be released in 2011. Im not sure if it was said by a truth-missing person though.

    ok so i finished the uglies series in less than a week… iv got wayyyy 2 much time on my hands

    i know im a girl and i just said i was in love with another girl but o well who cares


    i think it would bbbb cool 2 see Uglis on the big screan

    gets me away from my mom
    wow that was a lil mean but o well

    but i agree if they put the three books 2gether that would just b stupid

    but yeah i do think that they should get some good wait no GRATE director 2 shoot uglies cuz i didnt like the twilight movie i just found it stupid i sooo preferd the book over the movie but that dont mean i aint ganna go c new moon i mean come on it could b better but i like jacub so that s kinda the only reason im ganna c it hehe im so weird :P

    ping to Vicky: Seems like u have a lot on ur mind. And just a heads up for u, Scott-la created a forum already on the tabs on top of the screen (can’t think of a technical word for it.). Anyway I see u were getting ur point across. If I can remember, I think I was the one who ran luv_david off so I’m going to see if they actually made a point after all so ok. Also, I’m disregarding what is said above by Krissy and the other newbies that haven’t been on here for a while or ever, but no one ever even talks about twilight on here anymore. Sure in the beginning there were some petty little arguments like, the movie is/isn’t going to be better than Uglies or something of the like, but I’m not going to go check. This is all I have to say, and since Scott-la hasn’t posted a single thing about this in 4 months, I doubt it will ever come up again unless it’s really true. so bye. Not feeling like it emotionally, but since it’s my sign off, I’m going to do this. :D

    There are no words to describe about how excited I am about this movie. As a huge UGLIES fan…I must say this is the highlight of my life. I have always wanted this series to become a movie, because I just felt it’d be the greatest movie ever! I read the series when I was in high school, and I read them all in three days, and then the final EXTRAS came out and I was even more excited. I’m in the process of re-reading them again, and I always try to get my friends to read them. This is perhaps the most epic moment in my life. I’ve waited far too long for this time to come…

    i just started reading this book and it is awesome if it dose turn to a movie it would be as big as twilight and there will deff be more after the first one cuz look how many ppl wrote like really i am number 1121 and if the ppl that make the movie sees this and how many fans want this they are crazy to say no to it and a lot of unhappy fans that will make a big deal about it………..but i cant wait for it . it will be one of the movies that ppl will be talking about for a while and yeah some ppl are right it would be cool to have actors/actresses that are not are not that new or really didnt star in many movies cuz it would be fresh and new and that is what ppl are looking for these days lol

    October 16th, 2009 09:35

    I’m so STOKED for an Uglies movie!! The first time I read the book and then the series I thought it should immediately be made into a movie…

    You know what would be a pretty cool idea???? If there were open auditions for the parts of tally, shay, david and zane. That way those roles would probably be cast to people who are absolutely unknown, and maybe the actors will have read or be fans of the book already and be acquainted with the character they are playing and actually do a good job so they don’t bomb it like other Sci-Fi movies did.

    Just saying, it would be pretty bubbly-making for some of your die-hard fans be cast in those roles and doing an awesome job giving each character the actual personality you intended on them having.

    i agree with number 1140, now that i think of it, i dont want people becoming fangirls, (or boys for that matter) over a series so intelligent and thrilling. i dont want to sound selfish, but someone who doesnt want to take the time to read it shouldnt really fall in love with it. but thats just me being the thinker of my friends.

    still, regarding the movie news, im hoping it happens. i have already posted in the other comment board with my movie input.
    and, regarding my selfish input, i think the movie shouldnt be blown out of proportions in advertising. of course it wouldnt be best for the business, it would be better for my own comfort (:

    again, im hoping this happens, but am also hoping it doesnt get out of control <3

    WRIGHT MORE OF THE BOOKS! i just finished the last one specials i know that there is extras but that just explains things right. dude u could easily make her story go on. the last book left a whole bunch of possabilities. im probably a little late i mean my 8th grade language arts teacher showed it to us. when i finished uglies before the rest i went out and bought the rest. these are great. and if the movie comes out im lining up for it. make sure its action packed a little. like where the smoke gets invaded. ooooh thatll be good. make sure the specials are beast looking too.
    PS: when was the last time u updated ive seen a trailer is it a real one

    okaii. TAlly HAS to have orange-ish brown-ish hair like she does on the cover. like i mean im pretty sure thats supose to be her. and hair hair shouldnt be actually *frizzy* but you know how some people straightened here hair too much? kind like that. and shay, i allways pictured her with dark brown hair, a little past her sholders. and bangs. she souldnt be playsed by someone famous. like i mean. really? but i pictured her skin to be a tanish brown-ish color cuz she is the kinda girl you would see always out side. one of her fave things to do is hover board. and she goes to the rusty ruins a lot so she seems like a girl who would be tan from being out side.
    and doctor camble. should be playes by someone capable of being stone cold. like i pictured her as the doctor from x-men, the last stand. the woman who takes care of the little boy who is the cure. yeah, her. =] she is pretty and she looks like a person who could play a cold charactor.

    and when with the try outs from the movie charactors be?? i REALLY want to play shay. that would be cool. so yeah when would that be?

  1148. 1148
    November 8th, 2009 04:13

    dr. camble should be played by: Shohreh Aghdashloo
    she totally fits the part. she would be perfact!
    and for prettys the girl who plays tally for that movie should be played by: Alexz Johnson, you know the girl from instant star. but when she has red hair. or a brown-ish red color would work. becuase she totally looks like tally on the cover of prettys.. am i right?? lol

    Scott,your an amazing writer,Ive read twilight,and everyone thinks since its a big hit,then Steppahnie is a good writer [I notice the spelling mistake] But shes not very good in my opinion.
    She always explains every little detail,making the book very boring….and asks many questions and overdoes it.
    Your book is addicting,never gets boring,they’res never a part where you can just be like “Okay,Ill stop here” its just so intresting.
    I promise you,Uglies,will be just as good as twilight!

They have to pick the right people to be the actors, or it will total ruin the whole movie… Scott your a guinece for writing this book seires, your the best. Thanks so much for writing them.

So the fact that there is even talk about a movei makes me so happy for the author!! Not to mention, the fans. I should say, though, after I watch the movie, I am probably going to start talking like these futureheads again. Haha, SCI FI ROCKS! :)

    i agree tally sould be an unknowen actor it will just make the movie 10 times better. Peris , David , Croy and the other Smokies sould also be unknowen actors to. Maddy and Az sould be knowen actors and Dr. Cable sould be on too. LOVE the books iam working on extras. It would be sooo cool to see the uglies world outside the books. And you really got to show the detalis about her tricking the city. I wanna Ride a hoverboard that would be soooo cool!!!!

    Congrats Scott!! Hey I’d love to see Uglies as a movie! About the casting I know peole are bugging you about it but I think it would be awsome to be in the movie! I’d love to play Tally or Shay. I’ve taken acting classes and would absolutly love to be in the movie. So you hear anything about open auditions I’d like to hear about it. P.S. COULD YOU MAKE THE AUDITIONS CLOSE TO OHIO PLEASE? I’d be there to try out if you could. PROMISE.

    Oh my, I really hope that its none of the 3 in one crap, and I hope its VERY true to the book.

    I had to read Uglies in my Young Adult Fiction class at college and fell in love with it. I read the entire series even though only Uglies was part of the classe’s syllabus. I always thought it would make a great TV series, but a movie would be amazing too!

    I think Catherine Zeta Jones would be a great Dr. Cable. I agree with many of you that Tally would need to be an unknown. How about Rachel Melvin? Other than that I don’t really have many ideas for casting.

    I just hope the movies are a hit. I have a tendency to be let down whenever I read a book before I see the movie becuase it’s always better in my head.

    Good luck!

    Okay, this is so going to sound weird but while reading the series the first person that popped into my mind as a good Tally was Demi Lavato. I know, I know, she’s famous, but still, if you look at the cover of the first book and look at her face they seem to be slightly similar.

    Well, this is…weird-making. Why do you want some random bubblehead play Tally Youngblood in one of those ‘movie’ things when I’m right here? Did the “mind-rain” (or whatever everyone’s calling it these days) not get to you or something? Could one of you ping me and tell me what is going on? And someone also tell me what ‘Hollywood’ is…or it might get ugly.
    -Tally Youngblood

    ************* (count the *! my lucky number!)
    haha just kidding my real name is Savannah (call me Tally-wa or Savvy-la) and I’m DYING to play Tally!! omgosh you have noooooo idea how well I’d play her (no I’m NOT big-headed, I’m just campaigning here!)! and hey, it’s not my fault a bijillion total strangers have asked me if (to quote one girl that I started talking to because she saw me reading Uglies for the 13th time!) “have you been in movies? you look EXACTLY like how I imagine Tally Youngblood!” yeah…that was totally bubbly-making! it was really sweet (sweet as in awesome and sweet of the girl to say that…its a great compliment if you’re told that!)
    and to Erin Harte…Demi Lovato would be awesome as Tally if I couldn’t play the part :) but even though I love Demi, and I’m sure Scott and the movie producers would choose Tally wisely, I’ll still murder to be Tally…except I wouldn’t kill Demi, I’d just gently move her out of my way ;) lol funny how Mr. Westerfeld said to stop asking about casting calls and all, but we still are!
    haha, just remember ‘savannah lake’ when casting Tally…i’ve been acting for about 5 years fyi lol i’m such a campaigner! but yeah that explains my Tally-ness at the beginning…gotta love acting! :)

    November 14th, 2009 07:02

    Ping to Tally Youngblood/Savannah Lake (call me Tally-wa or Savvy-la): HOW DARE YOU TECHNICALLY STEAL MY NAME!!! lol! Know any acting classes I could take? I did some for a year when I was about 7, but then this evil teacher (so evil I will do this face :twisted: and that if this wasn’t the internet where people can judge me for what I type, I would call her a bunch of bad names.) and it just ruined the whole experience. Anyway, I know this girl @ my school who just got a movie part in the movie “Lifted. Yes I know you’ve probably never heard of it but the trailer’s pretty entertaining! (Just Youtube it. She’s the one in blue) Too bad she’s not really my friend… (not that she’s snooty or butt-holeish or anything. She’s actually very nice except that I don’t know her very well. And she made me kinda jelous last year because she went out with my crush for a month and it made me really PO’ed… sorry. Talking about my life when it’s not my blog..) Anyway, hope to see you! :D

    I am looking forward towards this movie, one person that I notice on a palm-pre commercial was Tamara Hope. I didn’t know who she was until I researched that commercial but she looks like a girl who can play a role in the Uglies. I just noticed it that she will be a great part maybe the main character?

    Hey the OTHER Tally Youngblood!
    Oh I hate it when I take acting classes with those crazy mean teachers! Yikes! :p Well, I took classes @ south coast repertory in Costa Mesa for awhile, and those were totally awesome! I guess that finding good acting classes really all depends on where you live, but if you live in SoCal like me I could list a few. I would recommend starting small: do a few plays/musicals, memorize monologues and perform for yourself or family, and also audition EVERYWHERE! It doesn’t matter if you actually get a part (or if you really want a part), you just need to make sure ppl know about you and know you are interested in acting.
    Also, if you have a community college somewhere nearby, try taking an acting class there. They can get a bit dirty though so be careful. :) okay not a bit, more like absolutely disgustingly dirty! blegh ughhhhhh! XP
    Lol, I’ll take a look at that! So is her part like a main role or a sort of main, or minor, or extra? I have a few friends who have done acting stuff like that. My friend Alli was an extra in an episode of Hannah Montana…she was in a scene in an episode where Rico forced Jackson to dress up in a red sparkly dress and be his “lovely assistant” in an impromptu magic show. Bwahaha! She was wearing pink capris with big flowers on them. It was pretty cool, even though I don’t watch a lot of tv.
    Sorry for the delayed response…my laptop at home has a blog-blocker (love you mom) so I can only get to this blog when I can use other computers. :)
    Haha wish me luck on the Hollywood scene. my mom and dad would flip out if I even peeked into a room where ppl were auditioning for a movie…and yikes it would not be pretty! In fact, it would be pretty darn ugly! :)

    uglies would be such a good movie: tons of people would go see it because of how popular the books are, and moviemakers could do so much with it. it’d be a slendor for the eyes XD

    I really LOVE the Uglies series!!! I just got finished with Extras today and I am hoping to get Bubbly to Bogus: Insider’s Guide for Christmas. That would be totally happy-making! :) If not, I will buy it myself. As for my opinion on the movie, I really super hope it will come out (and soon!) and that the producers will make it true to the book. As for the actors…I really have no idea! Whoever’s best, I guess! :)

  1181. 1181
    December 1st, 2009 01:28

    i think Tilda Swinton would be perfect for Dr. cable.not only is her attitude perfect, her look in general is exactly right. and i think anna popplewell would be good for like shay or something, maybe even tally but i dont know if she might be too old for those parts

  1182. 1182
    December 1st, 2009 04:31

    we need to know if there will be a movie or not! the suspense is killing me!!! and from the looks of it im not the only one. please Mr. Westerfeld let us know anything. thanks for the wonderful books you write! You have a great mind!

    My friends call me absessed with the books. Uglies is the first book I read over 200 pages. I just love the books there my favorit. I wish the movie would come out faster. I would see them so many times I would have them memorized. I would get the movie the first day it comes out on DVD if it ever does. So would any one be team David or team Zane? I don’t know what team I would be.
    sorry about spelling.

    December 5th, 2009 05:23

    I just started to read these book’s recently and I really enjoy them. And that’s coming from someone who never reads. xD I hope Uglies will be turned into a movie, but I hope they won’t leave many (or none) of the parts out that are in the book, or that would kind of ruin the movie some.

    My idea of Tally should be get an actor who looks a lot like the cover of the book and who has the same description of her in the book. Well that’s all I’ve got to say…

    Good Luck Scott~

    December 5th, 2009 10:51

    December 5th, 2009 22:13

    i have been wanting to tell you that you should get in touch with “Waldenmedia”, “Jerry Brookhigmer” and more because if you did this movie with the right actors and producers it would be phenomal, and i think it would be like the next “Twilight, or New Moon” maybe even “Harry Potter”, i also think that “Emma Roberts/”NACY DREW”,the movie” would be good for “TALLY”, and “Annasophia Robb/”SLEEP WALKING”/BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA”,the movies” would be good for “SHAY”,and “Taylor Lautner/”Twilight/New Moon/Cheaper By The Dozen2″,the movies” as “David”,and “Josh Hutcherson/Bridge To Terabithia/Journey To The Center Of The Earth/Rv/Zathura” as “Zane”, good luck Mr. Westerfield, i also think “Kristen Stewart/Twilight/New Moon/Catch That Kid/Adventure Land”,the movies” should be someone in all the movies/books. im thirteen,im a girl,my names is Kayla and i love uglies

    I have utterly obsessed with the Uglies Series, i’ve read Uglies,Pretties, and Specials over and over and never get tired. I do these books for all my school english book projects. Yes every year. Because it actually makes me want to do good if it has to do with these books. I relaly dont know where I stand with makign a movie, I just feel this book is WAY too god for a movie. No actors could play the roles of these characters perfectly, and I cant imagine how they will ever make this amazing world come to life. I do know though, Taylor Lautner should play David xP Well Scott, I wish all the best to you and your amazing books. I am actually in the mist of doing my 2nd quarter project. Its on specials this time :D I’m pretty sure your done with these series after Extras. But if you could ever maybe write a mini-book on Tally & David, that’d be absolutley icy. If there ever is a movie, you’ll deffiantly see me at the midnight premiere. -> Your Biggest Fan, Emma-wa

    I think this movie will be GREAT! As long as they don’t mess it up. I think you’re such a great author, Scott. I want to be an author myself and I really look up to you. You made a fantastic book that left you things to think about: technology, humanity, nature, trust, friendship, fame, etc. I think this movie will be a great hit, not only because of the great fantasy and world of the Uglies series, but because of the secret messages within.

    My friend and I are obsessed with Uglies. We even call each other “lis-wa” and “Iz-la”. The books are amazing and we’re both much anticipating the arrival of the Uglies movie, should it be made (which hopefully it will!!)

    Currently, there’s a gang of about 20 girls at my school who are eagarly awaiting news of the confirmation of the movie. The books were amazing, I just hope that the movies can live up to them!

    Thora Birch is my age or older, I”m guessing early 30′s, so she would not be a good fit for Tally. I can’t wait for the movie, I am giving Uglies as Christmas presents this year!

    December 23rd, 2009 00:41

    I have always been a big fan of these books starting about 3 years ago. Im 21 now and I’m still rooting for this project.

    The consept of of the stories Scott Westerfield created aren’t the kind of stories that get boring with age. They are still very appealing to older people. Even my mother liked the first one! And she never reads. :)

    Unknowns is for sure what all of us want to see. But it wouldn’t upset me if every single line of text didn’t make it into the movie. Just seeing it in front of my eyes and not behind them would make me happy.

    I have a feeling that if this book got made into the movie the books would explode all over again!

    I am a tall (5’3) twelve-year-old with dirty-blonde hair. I love acting, but I have never been in a movie before. I enjoy performing in lots of plays. Do you think that there is a spot for me in the Uglies movie? Maybe I could be one of the new uglies at the dorm who asks tally why she hasn’t had her surgery yet, or some random smokie…

    I’d love for Uglies to become a movie. the book is already like a movie. i just hope they get the casting right and the movie better not turn out like another twilight where they cut out half of the book.

    I think the role of doctor cable should be played by Angelina Jolie because she has that cruel pretty look, with sharp eyes.
    I really hope this becomes a movie!!! I adore your books Scott!!!
    Thank your for writing them :)

    December 28th, 2009 00:31

    HI EVERYONE! Guess i kinda thought that this piece of the blog fell off the face of the universe cause I’mposting on all the newer ones. You guys have GOT to read Leviathan, Scott-la’s new book. Weird, I always refer to him as Scott-la no matter what.
    Ping to Tally Youngblood: Hi other me! The last thing I tried to be involved in showbiz was trying out 4 the school play last year in middle school. I refused to sing since I suck at it, and that’s why I didn’t make it…
    Anybody seen Avatar yet? I heard it was awesome!

    December 28th, 2009 04:35

    okay this series turning into a movie is a awesome idea- but i pray that the acting and effects well be wayyy better then the twilight saga. i am big fan of twilight but im also a big fan of the uglies series soo the movie(s) better be wayy better! :D kay

    I think the movie will be a great adventure of Tally’s world as a movie and we could be able to picture how future could look like for teens.LOL on the last [paragraph Scott.hope it turns into a movie so we can addition soon.

    December 30th, 2009 08:15

    Cool! I’m just worried that it’ll turn into a Twilight or something. I hope the movie cast does not ruin the characters and how I imagine Tally’s world. We probably all have a different picture of Tally’s world.

    December 31st, 2009 09:52

    Okay, no one probably will look at this suggestion, since – lets put it straight – not many people go through the entire list, it’s like seven billion pages in word :\

    ANYWAYS, sorry for rambling, but I do think there should be unknowns for a lot of the parts, and some known people for a lot, too.

    They should do casting for shay and tally like they did for aang in the last airbender. I think paramount – or whoever – put up a website just so people can audition easier. Like, it had five little buttons saying stuff for parents(safety), requirements(or whatever), then the other three were rules for email auditions, mail auditions, and to set up an actual audition thing.

    I think this would be REALLY helpful in casting a lot of the people. I mean, people without agents cant really get a hold of the Davis’ – the producer people. And it would help people with them.

    hope that all wasnt *too* rambling-ish. I tried to get it all down in the least amount of space – without making it not make sense.

    I hope that made sense :\

    This series is soooo already movie ready! Any books that can keep me awake till 2-3 in the morning must be good. I honestly do not think that the actors matter as much as the special effects. I’m sure that the casting director would love to search new talent for this movie. The young, fresh and VERY GOOD actresses and actors out there will get there chance with this movie. But the special effects and the ability to change people throughout the whole series is going to be key! ****Spoiler**** Can’t you just see Shay and Tally going supper icy at the Armory. And how awesome would the helicopter stuff be. Tally stuck to the underside etc. I’m of the oppinion that the movies must all be made to tell the whole story and the actors must sign on for the full trilogy. I’m more excited to see the “Specials” book played out in a movie than anything.
    And lastly… Please give us a little PG-13 action. I really need to see the kisses that change Tally. That will need to be pretty powerful!

    January 3rd, 2010 02:38

    I just started the series but can not wait!!! This book series makes my top 5. That is really impressive… Twilighters, House of Nighters, City ofers (City of Bones, Ashes, and Glass), and Deaders (dead is the new black, dead is a state of mind and dead is so last year) better watch out!!!! The Uglies series is here to knock them out!!! GO SCOTTLA!!!!!! We are all supporting you… This would be a great movie series… Like some people say dont be afraid to make it PG 13… Those kisses are important!

    January 3rd, 2010 03:06

    okay….. i hate that im super late to comment, but i’ll still do it. i LOVE this series… i recommend it to anyone who needs a book. i first read uglies in school, i loved the book but we read it WAY to slow. so when -finaly- we were done reading it i went home and read pretties and specials that day, and extras and bogus to bubbly the next day. i didn’t even think about it becoming a movie because i didn’t think it needed to be one, it was already better in my head than any movie could make it. but now im super excited! i’ll be so frickin mad if they messed it up. please update this site! tell us if anything new is happening! and who optioned it? i heard it ws 20th century fox is that true? and please make it pg-13… people need to take it seriously.

    ps i respect you even more-if thats possible- knowing that you really care about what we have to say.

    very very sincerely marquita.
    pps. i use bubbly language all the time without realizing it :P

    I was just wondering if you already have a casting director picked out and if so, who they are?

    I love your books and I can’t wait to see the movie when it first comes out if it does, which hopefully it does!!!

    I Just bought the First book and needless to say I devoured it in less than 24 hours. I can’t wait to see a Movie production of it, certainly I am thrilled! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

    Thank you for writing such a good book! Please continue to do so!

    Ping to Scott la: woah.! okay so if your going to do has to be done right, obviously. okay for super famous people as the main characters.not everyone knows/loves tally at they shouldn’t in the movie either right.?i mean i need to get my Own feel on the chick playing her.[personal opinion] secondly…you need to get your butt on hear to make a new blog, haha[: and i think if you were to use a couple of songs by X-Ray dog in the would automatically give you a feel on the EPICNESS of the movie for brainless/bubble heads whom have not read your amazing books.
    and i think you and the producing team should most Definately look up "uglies fan trailer" on youtube because some of your fans made AMAZING trailers of what they think it should look like.and i think many of them speak for us all.[minus some of the actors/actresses choices]
    the best is one by this girl, her username is… myorli

    Hi Mr. Scott-la and whoever else decides to read this one post out of all of the tons of posts that there are.

    First of all, I would just like to say thank you for taking into consideration your fans’ opinions. I think this will make for a better movie that the audience will like better. And also I want to say congratulations. I know it isn’t for sure that there will be a movie, but from what you wrote, it seems like there is a good possibility.

    I agree with everyone who said that Dr. Cable should be either Tilda Swinton or Emily Deschanel. (Mostly Tilda Swinton, though.) And as I also agree with the fact that the lead roles should be unknown actors. Also, maybe it would be worth considering having the actors be slightly younger than 16 so you can see them age more and they look more vulnerable to start out with. But David should be a little older because he is more mature and wiser and more effected by nature. And everyone cast for this movie needs to have read the books!!!

    I am excited for the special effects in this movie and hopefully those that follow. It will be so cool, but it absolutely has to be done right! It is going to be so BUBBLY!

    Ok thanks and that’s all for now, but maybe more to come if I think of anything else!

    Hi! Im really excited Uglies is gonna be a movie! I agree with everyone who said unkowns for the main roles. I just wish i were older so i coud try for a part! But sadly im only 11. Still a littlie. Im 12 in marh though! Anyway, this movie HAS to be done right! If it comes out anyting like twilight, I think ill sue!

    January 6th, 2010 10:57

    NO!!! Mr. Westerfeld, PLEASE don’t let them make this movie!!! I had ideas for this movie that you would never even believe!!! It’s amazing… I wanted to be the one to create this.

  1246. 1246
    January 7th, 2010 02:39

    :) Hey, Scott just wantz to say how much i love all ur books! they “re terrfic in every way! when i read your books it make me want to feel wat they r feelin and see and explore exactly wat the characters r doin in thee book! its like so ugghhh! i dont knw how to explain it but it feeels so awesome! and if there is a movie i would definetley love to be in it! and i would try my best to be all i can be to make sure i can try to hav the experences that thee characters did hav in the book! :)

  1250. 1250
    January 7th, 2010 07:08

    I would lOVE to see the book become a movie, and if it does i think they should play Already Gone By Kelly Clarkson cause when i hear this song it fits so perfectly where Tally and David are on a hoverboard together in the book pretties!

  1251. 1251
    January 8th, 2010 14:09

    I’d love to see the uglies series become movies. recently read them and i couldn’t stop reading them. as soon as i finished a book i simly continued on to the next one so i hope beyond hope that this becomes a movie cuz only good things can come out of it. most books turned into movies are big hits if done the right away and so all the producers need to do is listen to the fans and just do it. there are a lot of love interests, action, a good plot, realistic characters, and the ending isn’t exactly happily-ever-after which i love about the books. for some reason i can see emily browning as tally. i dont know why but its just a small suggestion. other than that all i can say is that this is an amazing series and i’d love for them to be made into movies.

    Uglies was a great series and I’m sure it will be a great movie.
    Just don’t have Catherine Hicks be the director (lady that did Twilight). She’s not that good, in fact, I don’t like her and neither do a lot of a other people. Have to have a good director for a good movie :)

    Keep up the good work :’D

    Reply to Kat-la:
    already gone would be good, but its not….trying to think of a good word……….intense, thumpy, thought-provoking enough. Around the same time I started Uglies, I heard a song called Faded. It’s originally by the Veronicas, but the band Everlife made a cover of it (the cover was the first version of the song I heard). The bridge goes: “I don’t wanna be the picture-perfect pretty girl, who’s got nothin’ to say, I’m not gonna wait around, let you run my whole life down so you can watch me fade away.” And the chorus goes “I’m faded into someone else maybe someone I don’t wanna be.” Its perfect, awe-mazing, and pardon me for being so cheesy: bubbly. :)
    But already gone is good for the parts when Tally and David are hoverboarding together.

    NO! you’ve got it all wrong! You HAVE to put a beautiful girl in the leading role, otherwise how does she become pretty? You can make her ‘ugly’, but NOT pretty!!!!!

    it seems like all I’ve been thinking about today are these 3 things becomming movies:
    1. This one obviously!
    2. Percy Jackson and the olympians (which is out on President’s day) and
    3. The Zombie Survivial Guide and there’s an awesome trailer (fan made but VERY AWESOME) here:

    just scroll down. don’t worry you’ll see it! :D

    I totally agree that Tally, Zane, Shay and David should be unknown actors! There are tons of aspiring actors and actresses (including my self) who would love to be playing characters in a such an amazing story as this one! But even if my, and the millions of other aspiring actors and actresses, dreams don’t come true, Uglies would definitely make an amazing movie! Congrats Scott! Ur books are amazing :)

    please a movie would be great i’ve read the books awhile ago but i love it so much i keep re reading the series because its an amazing storyline not having to do so much on love and vampires :)

  1261. 1261
    January 15th, 2010 04:14

    OK u have to make a movie!!!! i NEED more!!!!!! defintely DO NOT include disney or twilight stars. and this is just a thought, and probably not possible, but do u think that the models who are on the front cover of the books could play the roles? PLEASE dont cut anything out, make them say a few similar lines that were in the books! that would be awesum 4 example when cable says: “you can die ugly for all i care”…along those lines, and angelina joli shouldnt play the role even though she has the features, that ruins the character. I LUV THE BOOKS!!! THEY ROCK!!!! dont change the book!!!!!

  1262. 1262
    January 15th, 2010 04:53

    I absolutely love the series. I really hope they make this into a good movie, and not botch it up like Eragon. Please just stick to the book. If the Movie is at least as good as the book it would be an absolute box office smash.

  1263. 1263
    January 16th, 2010 17:28

    I abosolutely love this series! Can’t wait till its a movie. :)

    Personally I think that Jolie isn’t the best pick for Dr.Cable. I always pictured her as a woman in her 30′s with long long hair tied back into a pony tail, but with thinner lips. They just seem meaner :P

  1264. 1264
    January 17th, 2010 10:21

    i love the uglies series! i read uglies twice. i really think shay should be played by me!!! i love shay, i think i relate to her character. if i had the chance to audition for this movie, i would.

  1265. 1265
    January 17th, 2010 23:55

    I think the hardest thing about making this movie is it almost requires the creation of a new standard of beauty. If I’m remembering correctly there’s a scene in the book where Tally looks at magazines filled with pictures of the beauties of our time, and calls them ugly. I feel like the only think that would work would be to computer generate faces for the pretties, or something like that, give the pretties supernaturally perfect faces that are almost alien yet beautiful.
    I dunno, I’m rambling. But I’m really excited about the movie!!
