The Uglies movie, of all things...
« 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???

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?
