I know he said they would tell us but, nothing so far.... I would be so LIVID if they tried to put all three books into one movie! (Yes, I feel like using big words lol) Because then they wound miss all sorts of stuff and scrunch everything. I would hate it if it was not like the book at all, they should keep it the way it is because its like in the perfect condition for a movie.

They haven't even started casting or anything.  There's no gurantee it will be a movie either.

I recently learned something about Hollywood, and when I did the first thing I thought of was the Uglies movie.  Hollywood buys the rights to about ten times more intellectual properties than they actually make movies out of.  See, they're often not sure whether or not a movie based on this or that book (or whatever) will actually work, but they don't want to let a rival movie studio snatch it up while they're still figuring it out.  So they buy it anyway, even though they have no idea whether or not they'll ever even try to make a movie out of it.  And then they lie to the original creator in the hopes that he will pass the lie onto fans.  See, if fans get excited for a movie and it never happens, it's not the studio's problem.  If fans get excited over a movie and it does happen, then the fans will have been providing free advertising for years before the movie even entered production.

So an Uglies movie is not impossible, but it is much less likely than we've been led to believe.

Well this thread has done 2 things for me...

One... it has stopped me from having to post a new thread called "WHY ON EARTH HASN'T THERE BEEN ANY MORE NEWS ON UGLIES!!???!??! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON SCOTT-LA?!??!?!??!?"

And two... it has dashed my hopes of ever seeing this movie before I die =/

However... Hunger Games casting is starting soon I do believe :) so at least there's something to look forward to (sorry Scott-la, I'm sure yours will get there soon ^_^)

Well, I think once Hunger Games comes out everyone will be jumping on the Dystopian book to movie train. So I think Uglies chances will go UP!
