The Uglies movie

In case you have not heard Uglies is currently optioned to be a movie!  Scott Westerfeld has some comments about this talk with the producers here.  No details yet on casting but I will definitely be interested to see how they handle this movie.  In general I’m not a fan of movies that I initially read the book for so I’m hoping they will do a good job and not disappoint.  Right now IMDb has it tentatively listed for 2011 release.

    Those are good news! Last month I read The Uglies books and I love them very much. I’m very glad to hear that a movie will come. I’m curious to see New Pretty Town and all that technological stuff.

    I love your blog setup. Very colorful in pale pinks and purple. As for movie adaption, I’ve heard about the series awhile ago. Never read it. But it’s interesting that the author had some feelings to it. Keep this in mind: they alter the storyline from the book version to the movie. If you read the Client, for example, there’s one scene from the book that wasn’t in the movie. Or, now, for My Sister’s Keeper, they changed the ending. Jodi Piccoult wasn’t too thrilled with that. Hope it’s a good one.

    Thanks Kristen! I hope if they changed the ending of My Sister’s Keeper they made it a little happier.
