Is it just me or does it seem like every time you turn around a YA book is getting a movie deal? Don’t get me wrong some of these books I adore and I totally think they deserve a movie deal but others just don’t make since to me.
Maybe the movie companies are trying to ride the coat tails of a certain mass money making vampire story, I don’t know. But isn’t it a little hasty to buy rights to a book that isn’t even released yet? It just seems to me that if these movie companies would have a little patience they could get an amazing story instead of a so-so one.
I’m sure lots of people loved these books in question and this is just my opinion but do we really need a Wings movie? The book was okay and everything but there’s no way I would spend my hard earned money to see Miley Cyrus grow a flower out of her back. That’s just me though! Fallen for me was torture to get through so when I heard that it has a movie deal I thought WTH? I know some people loved it but is it really action packed enough to warrant a movie? There are definitely others that I am looking forward to seeing on the big screen, Beautiful Creatures, Shiver and The Hunger Games. And there are others that really deserve a movie but don’t have one, The Maze Runner and Graceling. So how do you all feel about this? What’s your opinion? Do you think the movie companies should cool it with the movie deals? Do you think they are just grabbing any Twilight lookalikes they can? I want to know what you think!
