Title: The Uglies movie, of all things...
Post by: Whateves on March 05, 2010, 01:15:18 PM
What do you think if normal people (Fans maybe?) participated in the movie (mainly cast since you have to have some sort of license to produce and stuff like that)? But my thought is that movies based off books are always messed up in one way or another! If real fans were involved it could turn out better than it probably would without us. Plus, how cool would it be if you got to be in a movie made out of one of your favorite books?

Maybe WE could write the script along with Scott Westerfeld!
That would be icy.

They should use the books as a script, and  if they TRY to ignore the fans...well...let's just say we will NOT be happy until they make pretties and they make it perfect.

um books aren't scripts. there's no way to make a movie directly from a book because they're two different things that are written with different things in mind. While I want the movie (if it ever happens) to be close to the book, I also want it to be good.

I think that a new wave of actors and actresses should play in the movie, Us fans should because we know what happens and understand it. The people who already are Actors/actresses would have to read them to understand, and how many would actually read them???

Yes they should defintaly use new actors.

I want to be Shay  ;D She's more like me than Tally is. I would LOVE to be in the movie. That would be my dream but it would be a crushed dream if they didn't make it good or if or if they didn't make it like the book. I mean it cant be exactly like the book but it needs to be close or then I would be disappointed, period. The fans should really be apart of it! It would not be fair if an actor/actress who hasn't read the book get a big part!

I agree! That would be cool. Maybe then the movie wouldn't be so messed up and different from the book.

I'd wanna be Dr. Cable, I might be able to it pull off--of course I've never acted on stage, but in real life? Oh yeah.  8)

I remember when  first read Uglies I wanted it to be a movie so badly! I was thinking maybe if I contacted someone high up I could be Tally--but of course I was a 13 year old immature little ugly back then but now I'm a pretty all grown up! And I say that in the most metaphorical sense. ^_^

But if they made Uglies into a movie I'd want to see some no name actors rather than some big name, it'd just make that movie that much better! :D

You'd have to be a lot older to be Dr. Cable, wouldn't you?

True, true--I may be only 16, but many people often think I'm twice that...like in my thirties...not just internet someone's who are trying to be funny, but real life people seriously think I'm 30 or older and these people themselves looked to be about 40...so yeah, I might be able to pull off Dr. Cable...

The only problem is that movie acting is REALLY REALLY HARD... you don't think it would be but you'd be surprised how much training it takes. Fans could only pull it off with a LOT of prior training... maybe some professional actors who are also fans?

Yeah, real to realz I could never act on a set--maybe in my imagination but really? I couldn't, I'd be laughing too much because it's be awkward with a bunch of cameras staring at me >.<

Sorry if I didn't read the whole thread, and this was said in there somewhere.

The only problem with movies being PERFECT to the book, is the end up being WAYYYY too long. Sadly, but true. You can't have everything from a book go into a movie.
I'm not saying that huge stupid errors are acceptable by any means.
IE: Ford Prefect in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie being the totally wrong race.

But =/ I'm on the fence on this argument. Would I go see a three-hour Uglies movie? Hell yes. Would I understand if not, of course.

Title: Re: The Uglies movie, of all things...
Post by: Khoela on July 03, 2011, 05:25:24 AM
Yeah, I see that too. I think Tally's solo journey will kind of be abbreviated into a couple minute sequence showing some of her struggles, even though it was, like, half the book, if I remember correctly :P
Title: Re: The Uglies movie, of all things...
Post by: Paris - Sensei on July 03, 2011, 12:36:57 PM
Yeah it was and true if they showed the whole thing the viewers that haven't read the book would be bored at that long journey and I might be a little for them showing her all the time all alone not talking. Fine reading about it but watching an hour?  ::)
P.S I would be fine with the camera's, I think it could be an AMAZING experience :D
