I actually had this same question while reading the book. I thought it would make a great movie. The graphics and stunts would make for a great action movie! I would definitely watch it!

Dystopian movies are very popular these days. From The Divergent Series to movies like Mad Max, I feel there is always an audience for this type of book to movie adaptation.

Of course this could be turned to a very gripping sci-fi movie. The futuristic theme is very attractive, and the concept of the mega-corporations ruling the world would leave the viewers with lots to talk about at the end of the show!

I think that this book would make a good movie. Now a days, nothing is too far fetched. I think with the special effects that are at our disposal, it could be incredible.

I definitely think this book could be adapted into a movie. The setting is very cinematic: a dark, dystopian future ruled by huge corporations. I think it could be done very well by Christopher Nolan... or Spielberg, of course.

I would be interested in the movie, but I always find myself disappointed and usually enjoy the book more.

Everyone love a good dystopian story, be it in book or film. I think that, if made right, this could be a good movie.

I feel like there should be a T-shirt for us readers:

Well, nowadays anything and everything is a movie so I wouldn't be surprised if something similar to this book is turned into a movie. With it being science-fiction I am sure the market for sci-fi movies is huge!
