The Expansion - THE MOVIE!

Post by aussiebooklover » 03 Sep 2017, 14:55

When I read "The Expansion" I had the impression to see scenes from a movie. Personally I hope one day this will actually happen - I think it would be a great story for the big screen.
What do you think?

I really enjoyed reading the book, so I support your idea. This book can be a great movie in the big screen.

Most likely, as has happened to books that have become movies, it disappoints i.e 50 shades of grey, the intensity and intricate details present in the hardcopy/book is lost which is sad but then understandable because any movie that gives us exactly what is in the book would last probably a week and be difficult to watch especially in the cinema. I so I hope for your sake the movie will be at least 6/10 compared to the book

I think you might be on to something here. Normally I would say no, but I think the basic premise of the book could be used for a movie script. In fact, I think the story might play out better in movie format than in book format. A lot of revisions would have to be made, though.

While I enjoyed reading the book I don't really know if this would be all that interesting on the big screen. I guess I just don't know what it would add. Something tells me it would probably get oversexualized.
