It isn't really scott's choice I don't think, although I really would love Leviathan as a movie. If you know any producers or something that might be who to ask.

But of course....

I, Emma-la of the Scott Westerfeld Forum, wholly support making Leviathan into a movie.

Most likely someone's gonna buy the right to make the movie sometime soon, hopefully they actually will!

It takes ages for movie options to go up - they've been talking about Uglies for ages. But I don't think they'll start a movie until all books are out, so they know what they're getting into.

It would be epic if they made the movie well, but I'm worried they would have crappy actord and cut out the good parts.
I Hello_Sailor support a Leviathan movie, but only if it's reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally good.

I fear an overuse of CGI.
Gasp - what if they did ALL CGI? Like A Christmas Carol.
I know that's far fetched, but still... oh the horror!

I'd rather have it CGI with good voice actors than naff acting all around.
What if it was animated normally by Disney >o<

That would be an epic movie..

But only if they got the actors just right.
And the accents! If everyone talked in the wrong accents, it would ruin the whole movie!

It woulod be awesome if the Clankers actually talked in German and there were subs. But that's coming from a hardcore sub fan.

If they can do a good job then you have my support. If they don't, make no mistake, I will blame you and I will make you pay the price. Glad we had this talk.

Yeah, if someone butchered my dear Leviathan, somebody would be injured.

A Leviathan movie would be so Awesome! But they would soooo have to get the actors right, and I cannot think of anyone of the top of my head who could do the characters justice. Especially Alek and Deryn. Animation is always good.

I could easily see a good Disney production of it, and it being made like the classic Disney.
