Uglies Movie/Twitter
« on: February 12, 2010, 10:47:15 AM »

Okay no, the Uglies Movie doesn't have a Twitter that I know of, but according to Scott Westerfeld's Twitter the movie is being fast tracked! He recently added that that only means that is raises the chance of a movie being made from 1% to 40% but anyway, here is the link he originally posted about an hour ago:

Anyone else excited by this news?

WOW! I'm really pumped, the more exposure this movie get's the better it will be in this case, I mean tons of people love the books and once it gets out there tons of people will be flocking to support it. I'm not so worried about this being as creepy fandomish, I mean it could always happen but exposure is what we need right now.

I hope they have auditions for the parts in the UK as well as in the US, as i know for a fact that teens in the UK find US films incredibly cheesy. Would be nice rather than having either a US cast or a UK cast, to maybe have a mix. It could probably work, and would do better as a film as all would enjoy it more :)

I thought they would do the US because of the books (not Extras) taking place in the US. But who knows?
