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

Post by Sushan » 02 Aug 2018, 06:39

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?

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.

It will make a great movie. I will buy a ticket to see it in 4DX.

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.
