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.

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

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
