Disney Pictures and Offspring Entertainment holds the movie rights of the Matched Trilogy by Ally Condie and it will be produced by Adam Shankman’s company who also produced The Last Song movie which is also based on a novel of the same title.
Well, as far as I know, Disney and Offspring have had the movie rights for more than a year now. I guess since then there weren’t any news on the movie but earlier today there have been new developments in the movie, Adam tweeted earlier that he’ll be reading a new draft of the “Matched” movie. This basically means it might actually happen!!! That’s exciting news for Matched Trilogy fans!!
I guess with the upcoming success of The Hunger Games movie, the producers are more likely to make the movie since more people will be interested in dystopian novels/movies now.
I (Eunice) haven’t read Matched yet but Georgina has. I have read like a chapter or 3 of the book before but I abandoned it cause I couldn’t get into it and the fact that another book caught my attention. I’m not sure if I want to come back to it but we will see.
So shall the fans start dreamcasting???
