Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke won’t be directing the Twilight sequel, but she’s found another project that’s even better!
Hardwicke is in talks to direct a film adaptation of another young-adult fantasy series, “Maximum Ride.” The five-volume series by James Patterson chronicles six teens, known as the Flock, who are genetically altered so that they are part human and part bird. Learning to fly, they escape the laboratory where they have been housed and are pursued by a pack of creatures called the Erasers that are part human and part wolf. [Yahoo]
Patterson isn’t a Mormon housewife like Stephenie Meyers so this probably won’t be an abstinence parable, but he did sell 16 million books in 2007. That’s one out of every 15 novels sold. Also, I don’t know if I mentioned this or not, this book is about HUMAN-BIRD HYBRIDS. I always wondered what those books they sell at Wal-Mart were about. I hope at some point, they poop on the bad guy’s car.
