Catherine Hardwicke To Direct Another Book Franchise?

Mar 25th, 2009 | By | Category: Book News, Fandom, Featured Articles, Movie News

Here is a little update on the the Maximum Ride MOVIE that will be coming out next year and Twilight director will be most likely directing.  Can’t wait!

QUESTION: Do you like the Maximum Ride Series. WHY?

In January 2007, it was announced that a film would be created based on the Maximum Ride series. James Patterson will executive produce. Avi Arad, one of the producers of Spider-Man, X-Men and other Marvel movies, will also produce alongside Ari Arad and Steven Paul. In an interview with James Patterson, it was revealed that Arad has already planned out the first two movies. On August 7, 2008, it was announced that Columbia Pictures bought the screen rights to the franchise. Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) is in talks to direct the movie, with Don Payne writing the script. The movie is scheduled for a 2010 release date.

Remember when you read a book that I have recommended or posted about on TST, please email me what you thought of the book. Good. Bad. Whatever I want to know, and I have gotten very few responces on any of the books I have posted.

    I love this series, it’s so good. Good for all ages too, I started reading many years ago and my 12 year old brother’s reading them and just adores them. They’re ‘his Twilight.’ :D

    I’ve read this series only because i had read the original adult novels “When the Wind Blows” and it’s sequel “The Lake House.” They were one of my favorite books. The Maximum ride series, which uses the same idea, is a completely different story, so i guess because i read the originals first i didn’t like it as much. The originals, in my mind, are much better.

    I wouldn’t agree that these books are for all ages. It might be a little immature for some. I thought it was a good series because it brought some new ideas to the mix, but not phenomenal. I’m not a fan of James Patterson’s attempts at young adult novels. For instance his “Dangerous Days of Daniel X” didn’t appeal to me. He writes excellent adult novels though!

    This is an excellent series! It’s really action-packed with a little romance inbetween. I have just started reading the series, and am already on the 3rd book (Saving the world, and other extreme sports). Bird kids and vampires are all the rage now! :D

    ^_^ I’ve never heard of it to be honest
    I’m guessing it should be something I should look into? =]

    I loved this series!!! I read the Maximum Ride series last year because my brother had the first book sitting on his bookself and I just decided to read it for fun. It took me a couple of hours to read the first book because I could not put it down. And the next day I had to get the next 3 books because it was so good. I read it before Twilight, and when I got the Twilight books I could not put those down either!!! The Maximum Ride series is really a young adult novel for middle school and high school students, but am in college and I still enjoyed reading it.

    So to anyone that enjoys reading, I recommend this series. I hope you enjoy it because I sure did!!! = )

    LOVED THE SERIES. But can Hardwicke PLEASE not be the director? I really don’t want her screwing up another series.

  11. Rachel C. says:

    THAT SERIES IS AMAZING!!!! i love it! has anyone read the newes book max yet? it is soo good! im not sure i feel about her directing it.. hmm i’ll have to think about it more..

  12. Kit says:

    This is awesome. They need to get together a cast too. Why do they announce it THEN wait a few years to actually do anything. It bugs me. I saw the Max book at the store the other day but I didn’t pick it up. Guess I should go back and get it.
    Did anyone read the other James Patterson book, the Daniel X one???
    I thought it was along the lines of the Maximum Ride series.
