Title: WHEN is the movie coming out?!
Post by: Neisha-wa on May 07, 2011, 05:16:42 AM
What's the holdup?! They've been talking about a movie for a long time and there's not even a stinkin' CAST.  >:(

Er, 99% of movie options never become movies. Plus, Uglies would be a helluva movie to make. So much technology, it would be very hard.

Script is the first thing we'd hear about.  You should've said that there isn't even a stinking script.

But yeah, movies tend to linger in Development Hell for years and most of them never get out.

Scott sold the rights to Summit (I think that was the name) a couple of years ago. There deadline to do something was the past fall, but since nothing was done, I think Scott has the rights back.

No. If you read Scott's blog, and about a year ago he says it himself. There mostlikely will not be a movie because the movie company isn't doing anything about it.

At a meet up, Scott told me that the movie has moved to a different company. Just sayin'.

I wish there was movie, but I doubt there will be...

I really hope there isn't one....mostly because Uglies is such a unique, special world, I don't think all the technology and software in the world would make it live up to my expectations.

To some degree Beth, I see what you mean. Although, I also think that with technology advancing at the speed it is, maybe by the time the movie is ready to be made, there will be tech suitable to the series.
