Is this book good to be adopted in to a movie?

Post by Sushan »

This is a fiction with thrilling scenes which are happeing in the future, in a background which is totally alien for us. With all these, will it be a hit, if adopted into a movie? Any particular parts you see that will or will not fit in?
We all need people who will give us feedback. That’s how we improve.

At this point, anything could be made into a good movie. While it sounds like there could be many movies out there very similar, I think it would be a thrilling and action-packed film!

Futuristic stories are often very popular as movies, especially with futuristic technology. With the SFX we have currently, anything is possible in cinematics!

I certainly think it will make a great movie. The spacecraft abilities are in no way farfetch as already there is technology for small creaft to land vertically. This was featured last week in BBC tech section.

I haven't read beyond the sample, but that part certainly seems like good movie material, so I think I could see the full story being a film, as well.

I think this would make an epic film. I would love to see the world that Gariffo has created come to life.
I picture actors when I read books. In this one, I had Tom Hardy as Sliver and Alexandra Daddario as Kelly.

I agree with the other comments - this would be a great movie! The public loves a good dystopian future novel!

I was about to say the same thing! Dystopian stories seem to translate very well into the big screen.

With what I know of the premise, it does seem like a great choice to be made into a movie. Furthermore, as many people have mentioned, futuristic thrillers seem to be the rage lately!

I haven't read the whole book but I agree with everyone's opinion. Certainly this will be a hit. With great computer graphics, good adaptation of the book and a great actor this will be a block buster movie.
