Max Ride Movie

Maximum Ride by James Patterson is officially going to be made into a movie with Columbia Pictures holding the screen rights!

Arad has hopes that "Maximum Ride" can hatch an original superhero franchise, with the elements of alienation and angst that resonate in those spandex-clad movie heroes.

Also, one of the interesting things in the article: "The fifth installment of the book series will be published next year."

I wasn't expecting that. I like the series, but I'm not sure that's the best idea after the fourth book. I love the series and the characters, but Patterson might be overusing the story. I mean, the fourth book was a little cheesy.
Oh well, I'm still looking forward to this new fifth book anyway.

I agree that J. Patt might be going a bit too far with the story. You can only do so much with the same characters. Yes, the fourth book was a bit cheesy. Actually, I hadn't expected anything after the third! I am interested to see how far the flocks powers will evolve though. And to see how Max has managed carrying around a HUGE dog. LOL!

meh, i've never been a fan of James Patterson. But then again, the whole romantic drama thing has never appealed to me. I'm more of a Lord of the Rings girl :)

I'm sorry I suck at checking my posts, and i just realized i never answered your last one. I've been taking French for... oh good lord... 6 years now. Going into my seventh, studying contemporary French culture in a class entirely taught in French. I have relatives in France, and the language, culture, and history combined is one of my minor obsessions.

Keep up with it though, you get to understand all of the cool French music, like Carla Bruni and Alizee and Kaolin.

I know. I love the characters, AND the story, but... he's starting to lose his touch. I don't know... I guess he's just not putting it into words very well, and also, he could make a few changes. but I'm looking forward to the movie, and I'm curious of what happens in the series. TT_TT I'm such a weirdo when it comes to books!
