The premise makes good movie material and will certainly be a hit with many movie-goers.

I think that this book would make an excellent movie! With special effects as they are, and futuristic concepts are usually popular and exciting. I think it would be interesting in IMAX, too. It would really immerse the viewer in this world.

Such a movie would be a fascinating one. Actually it can sell a million copies shortly after the launch.

Yes it would make for a great watch, though I think I have seen something similar before but I think it's a go for me

These days I prefer a good Netflix original series to a film. Do you think this book would make a good start to a series?

I think that this book could be made into a very interesting movie! The book itself was very thrilling and action-packed, so it would be perfect as a movie. The dystopian environment also adds another interesting factor for the production of the movie.

I think it would make a better series too. It would allow time to make the dystopian world look amazing.

Since it appeals to many age brackets (both young and old), futuristic stories are often very popular as movies.

I’m a big fan of futuristic movies, and with the many action scenes, I think this could make a great movie!

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!
I agree! As long as it is done well, it would make for a great movie! It’s one that I would watch for sure!
If they take their time and stick as close to the book as possible, they will definitely have a hit on their hands. I, too, will watch it.

Definitely, World, Incorporated would make a great movie. The plot is perfect. It'd be an eye opener for us to see where we are now as a nation, and where we are probably going to be in future.
