Sony is hoping they've got the next HUNGER GAMES on their hands with MORTAL INSTRUMENTS. The demons will be unleashed 8/23/13.


Couldn't find a thread. Sorry if already there is one. I went looking for it in the Lot and here. Found nothing.

Predictions:

You don't release a "franchise starter" at the last few weekends of August.

That doesn't show confidence by Sony.

That's a worse release date than TOTAL RECALL.

The Dark is Rising was also a big flop.

Eragon and Percy Jackson did ok. But late August? Really Sony?

I thought this was a comedy at first :P
(Although I thought it might be a fantasy as well)
Zyzzyx Road: OW-10 dollars
Total gross-20 dollars

Who were Henry the VIII and the Duke of Earl? Unsure-but they must of been great to have songs about them.

The books are popular but the fanbase isn't nearly as rabid as THG/Twilight/HP. It'll do okay but I doubt it'll make that big of an impact. The fact that the books are AWFUL won't help (the first novel was originally an incestual HP fanfic between Ron and Ginny, author changed names and a few other details and got it published).

More than half a decade ago I used to read fanfics on fanfiction.net and there were some pretty good writers. I can only assume this Clare was from there, and if so, how is it, if you say her books are awful, did she manage to get a deal out of all the other better writers and have that book be an incenstuous HP fanfic?

Something doesn't click?

Also, you wonder why a series like this is picked up, and not some of the other already established fantasy writers/franchises out there. Has anyone read Pendragon? I used to read that and it seems like it could translate very well to screen just the fact it's like a billion books long probably makes it less of a good prospect.

Right on money about incestous HP.

However, very good TV series True Blood and Vampire Dieries are also based on God-awful books. Especially VD is unbelievable and unreadable garbage. So they could do something with MI. However, it seems to me that Collins is in contention with K-Stew cause she`s going for the same type of roles.

And this shit also requires much more SFX than Twi or HG so they`ll either raise the budget or deliver ultra-cheap looking movie.

I'd prefer to see a movie about band instruments fighting to the death.

Write the script. Or better, create a toy line of deadly band instruments and when it becomes a hit, franchise as a cartoon series and finally Michael Bay movies. :wub:
