"Apparently the movie archive post has been overloaded and it’s not working right. Le Sigh. Soooo, here’s a quick movie update to answer your zillion questions:
1. Yes, the series has been optioned for film. Quite a while ago actually. By Michael Birnbaum at Empire Pictures. He’s working on making MARKED into a movie right now.
2. I’m pleased about this and trust Michael. So, no, I don’t think turning my world into a movie will ruin it. Relax guys. It’ll be fine.
3. I don’t have anything to do with casting. That’s Michael’s area of expertise. If he has open casting calls I’ll post about it on my blog. Emailing me your resumes, photos, etc., won’t help you get a part in the movie. I’ll be lucky if I get a part myself. Jeesh. I’M JUST THE AUTHOR!
4. No, I can’t give you Michael’s contact info. Try google.
5. No, I’m not involved in the script. Yes, I know the screenwriter. His name is Kent Dalian and I heart him totally. He’s doing an awesome job translating my book(s) into film. No, I can’t give you his contact info either.
6. I don’t know when or even if the movie will actually be released. It’s not filming yet, guys, so just be patient. I’d rather have a wonderful movie that comes out LATER than something crappy that’s rushed into production. Not that I have any control over that, but Michael is showing excellent judgment about such things and I’m totally satisfied with the direction he’s taking the film.
So sit tight with me, and let’s see what happens. If all else fails, you, Kent, Kristin, and I will eat lots of too buttery popcorn and either be awestruck (like it’s AVATAR) or we’ll sob hysterically (like it’s that sad version they made of Dean Koontz’s awesome book, WATCHERS). Personally I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the AVATAR comparison…

Okey, pelo menos uma coisa deu pra saber: Não será uma série de tv exibida apenas em canal fechado e pros americanos. Outra coisa: Não vão juntar livro um e livro dois pra fazer um filme, como vocês leram antes, a PC disse que o produtor esta realizando um filme do Marcada. E cara, eu gostei disso porque eu tava morrendo de medo que juntassem dois outrês livros pra fazer um filme. Ia ficar muuuito confuso pra quem não leu os livros e ia ser ridiculo no ponto de vista dos fãs de carteirinha
Qualquer novidade eu corro e posto aqui(: Enjoy (y)
