Michael Grant’s “Gone” movie update

 

While there still hasn’t been much news on an Animorphs movie, the new series ‘Gone’ by Michael Grant (co-author/creator of Animorphs) seems to be seriously being considered for a movie. Michael Grant explains it in his own words, using the Twitter video, below:

  1. PLEASE! MAKE AN ANIMORPH MOVIE! It could be the next great movie saga! It’s about the perfect time, people might have started to forget the tv/book series, a series the most kids/teens at the time LOVED. Just think of the old generation of kids, AND new generation coming together to see an EPIC film series! ahhh my hopes are up now lol. :)

  2. gone was one of the most amazing books it really needs to be made into a movie.find some good actors and an awesome producer and it could be one awesome movie

    Comment by brittany hanks — September 6, 2009 @ 5:03 pm

  3. I imagine one of the huge hurdles with Animorphs is the issue of screentime being dominated by telepathic animals. Works great on the page but the Hollywood people are probably skeptical. One of the issues with Gone is the difficulty in marketing it with big name actors since there wouldn’t be any adult roles.

    Anyways, this is great news.

  4. I think that making Gone into a movie would be amazing, however I think it would be cool if they made it into a TV series. On the subjec of characters I think that the perfect characters should be the characters on the cover of the book. If they arent able to, get someone that resembles them. do that and this movie will be huge!:)

    Comment by Emily — September 19, 2009 @ 3:16 pm

  5. Totally agree with Emily – TV serioes would be great, like a Heroes-style drama but for teens – say 12 episodes or so a season you could adapt the rest of the novels into a season per book it would be awesome – teen TV series are usually more memorable than movies!

    Comment by Mark — September 21, 2009 @ 6:29 pm

  6. That would totally awesome if Gone was made into a movie. They should definitely use the characters from the book cover. Sam and Astrid are so cute together lol

    Comment by Brittany — November 1, 2009 @ 6:07 pm

  7. who would yall like to take the roles of sam & astrid & quinn and all them? i’m actually starting to look up some actors…

    Comment by Megan — November 7, 2009 @ 10:29 pm

  8. I think Sterling Knight for Caine, he’s got that over-charming look that seems creepy underneath, and although he’s 20 he could definitely pass for 15. If not him then someone very similar.

    Comment by Mark — November 10, 2009 @ 6:27 pm

  9. Gone was a good book. They really need to make it a movie. I would watch this movie, My friends would watch this movie, and people who are intrested in thrillers will watch this movie. I can’t wait if this movie is coming out! :) :):):):):):)=D

    Comment by LeighAnn — November 15, 2009 @ 8:37 am

  10. best book ever you must maske this into a film it would be the hit of the year

    Comment by rhizzy — November 18, 2009 @ 11:44 am

  11. Man, if this will turn out to a movie I don’t think I’ll be so happy. Huh, maybe I’m just gonna be jealous on the actors allowed to be in it x]
    The only movie I’ve watched who’s better than the book must be… Maybe the Lord of the Ring, but the book is really good to! Oh my God, I remember the Golden Compass… I think I have nightmares about the Gone-book turning into a movie like that! But hopefully Mic wont let that happen.

    Comment by J — November 25, 2009 @ 8:37 am

  12. OMG!!!! im am so happy that they are making this into a movie and a tv show!! i hope it works out!!

    Comment by Ashley — November 25, 2009 @ 2:03 pm

  13. OMFG I REALLY HOPE THAT THEY WILL MAKE THIS INTO A MOVIE!!!!!im so excited.this is my fav book ever!!!
    i mean it. micheal grant is sucha talented author.. if i was a movie producer i would hurry up and get the rights for making it b/c THIS BOOK IS GONNA BE HUGE IF TURNED INTO A MOVIE!!!! :)

    Comment by belen — November 25, 2009 @ 5:54 pm

  14. NO! don’t make it into a TV show!!! A movie would be great but a TV show will get me sick of the characters and everything…. I absouloutly adored these books an d have lies preordered… It is my most favorite book ever!!!!!!!!! Dont do it please for the REAL fans!!!!!!!!! BTW no offence to your idea i loved the books. P.S: Every TV show ( in my opinion) made from a book has ruined the experience of the book. Bye Bye!

    Comment by Sami — December 1, 2009 @ 8:33 pm

  15. OMG! i love this book series! when will the next bokk come out?? what will it be called??

    Comment by luceill — December 2, 2009 @ 10:48 pm

  16. After ‘Hunger’, the next book is called ‘Lies’ and it is set to be released May 2010.

    Comment by iS — December 2, 2009 @ 11:22 pm

  17. THIS SHOULD BE A MOVIE!! THIS IS MY FAVORITE BOOK SERIES EVER!! Cant wait for Lies to come out in May 2010!! I think maybe Daniel Radcliff should play Caine I LOVE CAINE SOREN HE IS MY FAVORITE CHARACTER EVER!!! This would be the BEST MOVIE EVER even in front of Twilight and Harry Potter I BET!!
    I LOVE MICHEAL GRANT HE’S AWSOME!!! BEST ATHOR EVER HE IS INSPIRING AND I WANT TO BE AN AUTHOR !! I LOVE CAINE !!!

    Comment by Alyssa Rogers — December 4, 2009 @ 9:25 am

  18. May fourth 2010 to be exact… :)

    Comment by Sami — December 4, 2009 @ 4:34 pm

  19. A movie or a TV series would be so awesome! I can’t wait until “Lies” comes out…and I think the next book is called “Plague” xD

    Comment by Litany — December 4, 2009 @ 8:40 pm

  20. and I agree that Sterling Knight would be perfect for Caine! :)

    Comment by Litany — December 4, 2009 @ 8:41 pm

  21. May 4th is the movie’s release date??

    Yay!!

    Comment by Alyssa Rogers — December 7, 2009 @ 10:44 am

  22. May 4th is the release date for ‘LIES’, the next Gone book. The movie is still unconfirmed for now.

    Comment by iS — December 8, 2009 @ 12:03 am

  23. Thanks Litany, glad we agree on Sterling. Any other casting ideas?
    And in reply to Sami, I am a REAL fan and a TV series would mean they could adapt all the books in the series, which would be better than just a movie based on the 1st book.
    Harry Potter and Twilight are the only book series that are adapting every book – look at Stormbreaker, Golden Compass, Series of Unfortunate Events – most children’s/teens’ book adaptations only adapt the 1st book and then give up! I want all the GONE series!

    Comment by Mark — December 9, 2009 @ 5:08 am

  24. No, not Sterling Knight he’s too… blonde (I feel racist now) But Steven R. McQueen would be really good for the role of Caine :) . The book is awesome! :> Can’t wait for Lies and Plague! I like Diana though, she’s the character I’d love to play :) ) Really sarcastic with an acid tongue. Seems fun to be for a day :P But I really want Gone to be turned into a movie, waiting for it! :)

    Comment by Nadine — December 9, 2009 @ 7:48 am

  25. Quinn Alex Pettyfer
    Edilio (Mark Indelicato)(Nathan Kress)

    Caine Logan Lerman

    Dekka Keke Palmer
    Breeze Annasophia Robb
    Taylor Bonnie Wright / Debby Ryan

    Jack Alexander Gould
    John Jimmy Bennett
    Lana Jodelle Ferland

    Zil Cameron Bright

    These are my suggestions. The ones in () are ones I wasnt sure on :)

    Comment by Magnus — December 15, 2009 @ 11:16 am

  26. Nah, dude. Don’t use already really famous people like the Disney’s. Like the dude in the book cover as Sam, he’s hot.

    Comment by Breanna — December 16, 2009 @ 7:54 pm

  27. Oh my gosh Alex Pettyfer is amazing i love him he should be in more movies and also FINISH THE ALEX RIDER SERIES I MEAN REALLY FINISH THEM!!!!

    Comment by Alyssa Rogers — December 17, 2009 @ 9:45 am

  28. OMG that would be so awesome if Gone was made into a movie. I would freaking die! It’s my favorite book of all time! I can’t wait for Lies to come out. Also if it is made into a movie I think Annasophia Robb should play Astrid. I think she’d be perfect for the part.

    =]

    Comment by Caris — December 22, 2009 @ 6:57 pm

  29. Alex Pettyfer? He’s at least 20 now! Waay to old and zero talent! I agree not to use famous people, use unknowns so they don’t get boredafter one film. I want them to make all the books.
    Plus I said Sterling Knight as a kind of guide rather than for definite.

    Comment by Mark — December 23, 2009 @ 7:47 pm

  30. OMG!! i reli am looking forward to this… When izit going to be released or izit realeased alredi?? I’m waiting fr the new book HUNGER!!

    Comment by xThE DonNzZx — December 30, 2009 @ 5:20 am

  31. i agree not to use really famous people…i wonder what the names of the people used on the cover were…that would be really cool if they would do it. :D

    Comment by natalie — December 31, 2009 @ 12:57 pm

  32. so agree w/ natalie. hay mabey any one of us could be in the movie if it ever come 2 b.hope soo!;).

    Comment by josie — December 31, 2009 @ 9:45 pm

  33. I agree with Josie and Natalie. There are only so many talented teen actors and actresses out there. The majority of them are from disney or nickolodeon and people see them everyday. Why not hold open auditions so that people from all over can attempt to get a part? This will allow the movie (if made into a movie) to be truly unique and will make it a huge success.

    Comment by katie — January 2, 2010 @ 10:25 pm

  34. I really want this to be turned into a film. I dont think that really famous people should be used. the actors on the covers should be asked to act, they already kinf od portray the image that we have in our heads.

    If the producers were to choose random people through auditions, I would DEFINITELY audition. I’d love to be able to play Lana, Astrid or Diana.

    I really hope it gets turned into a film, it’s be a hit!!!

    Comment by Michelle — January 3, 2010 @ 3:33 pm

  35. i movie would be good but plzzz not a t.v show i mean hows that gonna work

    Comment by Daniella — January 7, 2010 @ 12:26 am

  36. i REALLY hope u make it a movie!!!!! (NO A Tv show) that would be soooooooo cool!!!!! I luv the books and it would roke if it was movie 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :D x)

    Comment by lilly — January 12, 2010 @ 5:22 pm

  37. Please don’t make a movie from Gone! The books are too good for a movie! And it will ruin the way I imagine the FAYZ! Don’t ruin an amazing original book!

    Comment by Jemma — January 14, 2010 @ 3:58 pm

  38. Reverse Psychology, I think Jemma’s got the right idea. ;)

    Comment by Issam — January 14, 2010 @ 10:20 pm

  39. I love Gone sososososo much!
    I really hope it’s made into a movie, or TV series, but I hope it’s not like a real crappy one. I think that the Sam and Astrid on the cover are sooo perfect!
    Please let someone see the truth!

    Comment by Evie — January 16, 2010 @ 6:36 am

  40. actually i dont think it should be a tv show itd probably be really crappy.

    Comment by Evie — January 16, 2010 @ 6:37 am

  41. Gone IS TOOO GOOD TO BE MADE INTO A MOVIE!!!!

    Comment by kate0x0x — January 19, 2010 @ 4:11 pm

  42. I WOULD LOVE IT !!!!!

    Comment by QADIRAH06 — January 23, 2010 @ 5:37 pm

  43. The book was totally awesome. I think if it was made to be a movie it’d be a hit! Sterling Knight could be perfect to play the part.

    Comment by Monai — January 28, 2010 @ 7:40 pm

  44. I think a TV show cos that wud probably cover all the books they’ll only make a movie of the 1st 1 and cut loads out – tv show they cud do all of it! x

    Comment by Tamzin — February 2, 2010 @ 3:21 pm

  45. I think it would be Ah-mazing if Gone was made into a movie, and that they could do a lot with it!
    i deffinitley dont think any1 famus should be in it, unless its like one or 2 pple…i think this movie should have fresh new faces. i would lloovvee the part of DekkaF!!omgoodness. if there are ever castings i hope he will let every1 kno!!!

    Comment by Tara Asare — February 3, 2010 @ 2:37 pm

  46. the gone sreies is supossed to have 6 books

    1)gone 2)hunger 3)lies 4)plauge 5)darkness 6)light

    a movie would be awsome times 22 billion
    yet a tv series would be good too ONLY if they play it frequently like 2 episodes or 1 hour per week

    also Plauge seems cool! their is bound to be some kind of sickness…not like i want anyone to die…

    Comment by kennyd — February 6, 2010 @ 7:57 pm

  47. Also if their were to be a show, do you people think it should be on? like channel wise

    Anyone?

    Comment by kennyd — February 6, 2010 @ 8:01 pm

  48. I am 18 years old. A senior in high school. And I have fallen in love with this series. These books, portraying the lives of hundreds of preteens to babies, is a work of art, and creates a generation gap bridge builder from Lord of the Flies to the present.

    It was only four months ago that I read LOTF for my english class, though I had previously read it, and I have to say that this series portrays the situation of kids in complete isolation perfectly. It shows the harsh reality of not only society, but of humankind.

    Even though, as we all know, movie and book adaptions never turn out how we would like them to (due to numerous reasons), I think this would be amazing to see this book series turned into a movie and come to life. Also, I agree with Michelle. If this is going to be done right, they have to bring in some fresh faces. No big names for these characters. It just wouldn’t be right.

    As for the comment about it turned into a tv series, I think that would be amazing, however, I’m scared that it would turn into the next “LOST”. It might not be as compatible if put on a small screen, especially with the technicalities involved to bring the book and it’s creations alive. So my vote: movie.

    I CAN’T WAIT for this to come out on the big screen…or at least I hope….

    Comment by diazf — February 7, 2010 @ 12:43 am

  49. Ooh TV show, never thought of that but I actually think that wud b way better than a movie cos then they wont cut loads of this FANTASTIC book out!

    Comment by Elodie — February 9, 2010 @ 5:07 pm

  50. Finally! i thought everyone was done or bored of talking about gone and hunger. glad i was wrong

    The comment by diazf was awsome + true, yet a tv series would allow a lot more things to happen. Maybe even some grusume scenes like when drake shot sam in the knee. its not that bad compared to other shows and movies.

    Umm some stuuff you might want to know is that i got all 3 0f my 3 teachers to read gone and hunger this past month. I’m 14 so it was awsome to have them talk to me about the series. 1 of my teachers was so angry about how gone anded that she demanded reading the next one. it was funny

    Anyway, keep writing.

    Comment by kennyd — February 13, 2010 @ 7:40 pm

  51. - i think that people should comment so we could chat.
    not to sound stupid but this is the only blog site i’m allowed to go onto…

  53. thanks…. i did not know that…

    Comment by kennyd — February 14, 2010 @ 10:17 pm

  54. I think the people on the book cover would be perfect for the parts. Especially Caine. He is awesome!! Definatly my favorite character. The guy on the back of GONE would be perfect to play him!!! :) :)

    Comment by Jaden — February 20, 2010 @ 10:08 am

  55. omg!! i bet dat evrone wil watch da movie lik they did w/ harry potter. so ya. da ppl on da gone covers wil be great 4 da actors jus lik jaden sed. 5 stars 3 dis movie!!!
    :)

    Comment by claire — February 21, 2010 @ 8:52 pm

  56. you guys seem like you really know what you want. thats what i was thinking too though. On the site Issam brought up(52nd comment) me and a few others have went into more deeper and shared info about not just the movie, but about lies and such. I joined + i really like it. Lots of cool stuff to talk about.

    Also, if you join the site(the other one), you can read the first six chpts of lies!!! They were AMAZING!!

    Comment by kennyd — February 23, 2010 @ 9:50 pm

  57. Gone was one of most entertianing books I have ever read!it should totaly be made into a movie! it would be awsome!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by sarah — February 28, 2010 @ 4:43 pm

  58. Please no superstars for the main roles. Take time to find people that accually look like the characters. I’m a huge fan of the Gone series and I would hate to see some Disney Channel actor play a beloved character. And frankly no star I have ever heard of comes close to resembling any character in the series.

    Comment by Eliza — March 2, 2010 @ 10:18 pm

  59. Just curios,
    Is there going to be another book beyond Lies? If there is it would be fantastic. I could not stand to see such a wonderful series come to a close.

    Comment by Eliza — March 2, 2010 @ 10:24 pm

  60. Eliza, yes, there are going to be 6 books total for the Gone Series:

    1. Gone
    2. Hunger
    3. Lies
    4. Plague
    5. Darkness
    6. Light

    They are all going to be released once every year. Michael Grant has apparently already finished Plague (and has submitted it for editing stages) and is now working on Darkness.

    For those that are still discussing this topic, you can discuss it more in depth at our Forum here, including the series and not just the movie: http://www.hiracdelest.com/community-status.htm

    Comment by Issam — March 2, 2010 @ 10:37 pm

  61. I think a Gone movie would be amazing, as long as they didn’t cut out the important parts. Like, they can’t cut out the scene with the ‘freaks’ (and Sam, Astrid, and the gang) in the concrete blocks or any scenes like that. I also agree that they should’t use the big-face actors. I like the people on the original cover. I’d like to play Brianna actually . . .

    Comment by Linea — March 3, 2010 @ 8:33 pm

  62. I never use to read for fun until one of my friends made me read GONE. Now i like to read and i have read both books it is great, I HOPE THEY MAKE A MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!(:

    Comment by victor — March 4, 2010 @ 9:47 pm

  63. Hi! My name is Hailey and i orderd gone out of a scholastics maazine. I’ve never really liked to read, but my mom made me get a book. I picked the book GONE by Michael Grant. Like i said I’ve never really read much, but i finished Gone in two days. Gone would be one heck of a movie with the right actors and a good producer and director. Gone was an amazing book. All of my friends are reading it and we can’t wait to get HUNGER!!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE MAKE GONE A MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    TYHANK YOU MICHAEL GRANT FOR WRITIN GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by hailey — March 6, 2010 @ 1:07 pm

  64. please,please please! how many times do I have to say it before some one gets a Clue that we all want Gone to be made into a movie??????????!!!!!!lolz!!!

    Comment by sarah — March 6, 2010 @ 4:36 pm

  65. i think that someone should really make the book gone into a movie. i just finished the second book called hunger in the series and i loved it. im still waiting for the third book to be delivered to the library i go to so i can read it. i hear that there is supossed to be a fourth book and i cant wait for it to come out. but right now all i really want is for gone to be made into a movie. im sure it would get really good reviews because the book is so awesome. my main point of this letter is that i think GONE SHOULD BE MADE INTO A MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by scarlett — March 7, 2010 @ 5:57 pm

  66. GONE IS AN AWESOME BOOK AND SHOULD REALLY BE MADE INTO A MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by scarlett — March 7, 2010 @ 5:58 pm

  67. please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please make gone into a movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by scarlett — March 7, 2010 @ 5:59 pm

  68. YESS!! GONE has to be made into a movie!! If it isn’t, I’m going to be ticked. GONE was the most amazing, adventurous, thrilling, awesome book I’ve read. I think I might like it better than Harry Potter or Twilight. I can’t wait for LIES to come out!! But, the characters for the movie can’t be big stars. They should most definitly be the people from the book cover.(Like I said before :) ) They look perfect for the characters. WOO! TEAM CAINE!!!

    Comment by Jaden — March 8, 2010 @ 5:33 pm

  69. Thanks so much, Issam. I appreciate it. I love Gone and I think Lies is going to be amazing! I can’t believe there are going to be so many books. No complaints though…

    Comment by Eliza — March 11, 2010 @ 6:26 pm

  70. No offense Jaden.. but i have to disagree on the characters for the movie being the people on the covers of the books… They aren’t pretty or cute enough. Sam and Caine are supposed to be really hot. And Diana and Astrid are supposed to be really gorgeous.. so i just have to disagree there. The people on the covers are not attractive.. like they’re supposed to be. So that’s just my opinion.

    Comment by Haley — March 11, 2010 @ 6:28 pm

  71. As “cute” as some people say Sterling Knight is I have to say that he would be awful as any character in the movie. One, because of the lack of talent. And two, because he does not resemble, in any way, the characters in the book.

    Comment by Eliza — March 11, 2010 @ 6:38 pm

  72. I do agree that making a movie of Gone would temporarily disrupt the image we create in our head. But I also think it would be so much fun. The Harry Potters were so much fun to go see at midnight. I remember going with my friends and dressing up. I still think of Harry the same way I did before I saw the movies. It was hard, though to get that image back. I, and I hope others, are willing to make that commitment to see what Gone would look like in theaters

    Comment by Eliza — March 11, 2010 @ 6:45 pm

  73. TEAM SAM!!!!! See? I can do it too.

    Comment by Linea — March 11, 2010 @ 6:46 pm

  74. I think Gone would be better off as a TV series.

    But it would be best till all the books are out I reckon. But then that won’t be till 2013 at least!

    Comment by The-Gaiaphage — March 12, 2010 @ 8:09 am

  75. I think that Gone would be a better movie than a T.V. series because if it became a T.V. series they would have to keep adding on to the story. Also, it would take a while for them to finish the story and I think that people who have read the series would get tired of waiting for the next episode to come out. It would also be easier for people who have not read the book yet to stay clear of having the book be given away if it was a movie.

    Comment by Eliza — March 12, 2010 @ 7:51 pm

  76. Please amke gone a movie!!!!!!! It could be the next Harry Potter or Twilight!

    Comment by make_gone_a_movie — March 14, 2010 @ 12:25 am

  77. ohhhhh i really hope everyone “CAN” make the movie of gone happen….. i kno there has been no movies like this so it would be popular , i kno i’d see it
    Please let the people kno who can make it happen to make it happen

    Comment by rae swette — March 18, 2010 @ 9:02 pm

  78. How can I audition for the movie? I would love to play Brianna. That would rock.

    Comment by lol — March 21, 2010 @ 8:44 am

  79. Ya! I just finished the Gone book! AMAZING!
    I want to audition for a part in the movie,like lol said. i would love to be sam temple, but i guess i could be computer jack or quinn too. Comment if you have any idea where you can audition!! :)

    Comment by MrFluffums — March 24, 2010 @ 7:47 pm

  80. best book ever.
    gone. gone. gone.
    is there going to be a movie coz if there is ts gonna be wikkid awesum.
    i’ve got an idea for the trailer of book 2, hunger.
    they could be driving in an suv with depressing tune in the back ground and a narrator is going “three months have passed… no food…” end then EZ picks a cabage. sam screams no and then the zekes come!

    Comment by Yousuf Anwer — March 25, 2010 @ 10:24 am

  81. I think that “Gone” would make an amaaaazing movie! I just finished the first book, and now I’m gonna go get the second one! It would be sooo cool to see this as a movie. :D

    Comment by Olivia — March 25, 2010 @ 5:53 pm

  82. Yousuf Anwer, i think thats a good idea for a hunger trailer, though i still think the should get really started on gone. I would love to audition too. I guess i could play Diana(not that i’m a big fan of her evilness) or maybe Breeze. My friends tell me i have no shame so acting would be fun. Also it would be cool to give teenagers a chance, u kno, new faces.

    Comment by kennyd — March 25, 2010 @ 9:00 pm

  83. thanks kennyd

    Comment by Yousuf Anwer — March 26, 2010 @ 6:31 am

  84. but ure totally right its a now or never question coz if they don’t make the movie ppl are going to forget about this book.
    but if they were to make a TV series….

  85. my argument to why it sould be a tv show is;
    look at smallville. see how it makes pppl love superman. i mean every1 watches it or has seen sum episodes. its freakin amazin

    Comment by Yousuf Anwer — March 27, 2010 @ 10:57 am

  86. Ohhh! its about a month till lies comes out and i think i found the release date for plauge, April 8 2011.
    But its still so far away, over a whole year.. :(

    Any way there is a description of lies at afew different websites, to read it at, yet it made me cry on the inside since i’m so sedimental with books.

    i cannot wait!!

  87. OMG! THEY BETTER MAKE A GONE MOVIE! I THINK IT WOULD NOT BE A GOOD IDEA IF THEY MAKE IT TO A TV SERIES. A 2 HOUR MOVIE SHOULD DO IT…I HOPE.

    Comment by ines — April 6, 2010 @ 9:50 pm

  88. I would be SO HAPPY if you made Gone into a film =D A TV series would be awesome, too ~ but I think the fans of the book might get a little annoyed with waiting for the next episode to come out, but you could fit so much more into a series than a movie XD
    I know in lots of films they cut out an awful lot of the book to make it fit a certain time, and I seriously hope they wouldn’t do that for Gone XD
    Well, that’s my opinion, I suppose XD

    Comment by Bethan — April 7, 2010 @ 6:08 am

  89. Gone would be a cool movie. I wouldn’t like it to be like Twilight. Because Twilight used known actors and Twilight has haters. I don’t want it to be like Harry Potter either because though popular the Harry Potter movies seem to be straying further away from the book with each movie. I think that they should keep most, if not all, elements of the book in. It would most likely be rated higher than PG-13 (or 12’s if you’re in Ireland like me.) But it would be well worth it. It would also be interesting to see what they could do with a TV show. (Word of advice to the people writing the film/show.) Don’t pull a Percy Jackson and cut all the important/interesting parts out of the movie. Because that might make me hunt you down.

    XD
    I agree with Bethan. (Salutes Bethan.)

  90. so will there be a gone movie or not???

    Comment by ashley- — April 12, 2010 @ 7:56 pm

  91. Wow, I really want there to be a gone movie, it would be amazing. My favorite person is Diana, she is so funny. The only problem is that if it ends up like twilight, then the magic would be lost. Love the books though :) xx

    Comment by Isabella — April 13, 2010 @ 4:34 am

  92. OMG OMG OMG if GONE was made into a movie, it would be the most EFFING AWSUM MOVIE EVER!!not a tv series tho, that would be gay!!!
    the book was ahhh-mazing, my fav book in the history of books.
    MAKE IT INTO A MOVIE!!

    Comment by HANNAH — April 15, 2010 @ 5:45 am

  93. foegot to mention, dont use already famous people,especially ones from disney, after seeing them on disney channel you just cant take them seriously. i would LOVE to see this this book amde into a movie, vut i can already see myself being dissapointed by them using dumb characters,.
    as long as they get the right actors, I CANT WAIT!!!

    Comment by HANNAH — April 15, 2010 @ 5:48 am

  94. i also sent warner brothers and email suggsting to make this book into a movie :D :D :D :D

    Comment by HANNAH — April 15, 2010 @ 5:50 am

  95. OMG, me and my friend are Gone CRAZY! We drive our other friend nuts telling them we are moofs and when something goes wrong we say ‘It’s the FAYZ man, just the FAYZ’ which really annoys them! If Gone was made into a movie, i would queue outside the cinema for a day to see it! Plz plz plz plz i am begging you Michael Grant, make it into a movie!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Tasha — April 15, 2010 @ 3:59 pm

  96. It is totally my favourite EVER book, and i’ve read it over 20 times in 5 mnths! Lving it sooooo much! I read Hunger in one night, so i went to bed around half 2 in the morning and i was sooo tired the next day! i WOULD LOVE TO BE bRIANNA, SHE IS SO COOL! (oops, soz bout the capitals!)

    I actually love Gone so much i dream about being in the FAYZ and actuall wake up thinking i’m there….

    Comment by Tasha — April 15, 2010 @ 4:02 pm

  97. Definitely make gone a movie. Anyone sane would.

    Comment by Anonymous — April 20, 2010 @ 9:35 pm

  98. No. They’d ruin it. I really want it, sort of. But the movie makers never take the book seriously. They do their own thing and don’t care what the fans think. Remember Harry Potter? Twilight? Ella Enchanted? Inkheart? Percy Jackson? The list could go on. Since it’s mostly kids, we would end up with a bunch of Disney Channel actors. Either that or they would pull a Percy Jackson and make them in their 20s or something, which would totally ruin it. The plot would be messed up and barely recognizable. The characters wouldn’t come across right, the script would be lame, the special effects would be the only good part. If they could by some miracle do it right, I would want it so badly. But since they never get it right, no. No way.

    Comment by Lizzie — April 22, 2010 @ 6:06 pm

  99. A gone movie-if done carefully-would be excelent, but a TV series, nah. I just can’t picture how the episodes would work.

    The movie though, if there were no extremely famous people in it and possibly the people on the cover as their characters, that would be SWEET!!! And for the roles like Briana and Dekka and the rest of them, if there was open auditions(not just in America, but in Canada too) for teens that are actually the right age and not like 20. That would make the movie really good.

    I agree with Orla (#89) that they should deffinatly not pull a Percy Jackson on the movie. I was a huge fan of all the books but the movie made me soooooooo MAD! Please, if you make a movie, don’t let that happen.

    When I read really good books like Gone, the characters stick with me and I can’t get them out of my head. I think about them so much. I analize every scene, seeing how things would pan out if someone would say something differently or do something differently.

    Argh!Sam Astrid Quinn Edilio Dekka Caine Daina Drake Briana Jack, I CANNOT GET YOU OUT OF MY HEAD!!!!!!!!

    Comment by The Breeze — April 23, 2010 @ 6:48 pm

  100. Yeah, the movie wouldn’t be as good as the book they never are, but that what makes the book even better and it would be awesome to go see. Plus when you read a book like Harry Potter then watch the film it’s fun to pick out whats been missed.

    Comment by Ash — April 25, 2010 @ 11:22 am

  101. I know that it’s set in America, but I’ve always imagined Caine as having an English accent! The movie should be good, but I hope they don’t make it as gory as the book, especially with Lana’s arm. That was freaky.
    I don’t think it should be a TV series, seeing as anyone could watch it and it might give little kids nightmares, plus I live in Australia and don’t have pay TV, so I would probably miss out. :(

    Comment by Edge Chronicles Fan — April 25, 2010 @ 8:58 pm

  102. I love gone and Hunger there so amazin!! I wish they would make it into a movie, but i agree with #101 I would not watch it if it was gory! If they did make a movie they should hold auditions in loads of places like america and the UK and get the right people in stead of the famous ones!

    I wish they would release Lies in the Uk sooner I’m so excted, a year is SOOOO long to have to wait!!!!

  115. I would be so excited if you made Gone into a movie. It would be awsome if they used a cast of new people. The big stars aren’t half as cool.
    I would absolutely love it if they made a movie no matter who was in it though.
    Michael Grant is the best author ever. I have all the books in the series. I go through them in like two days. So, I reread them over and over again. I’m such a bookworm. :)

    Comment by Kate H. — May 19, 2010 @ 9:16 pm

  116. A movie/tv series would be awesome! I personally thing that they should use unknown actors for the movie, because then you could watch it and be like “Oh no Sam!” instead of being like “hey, its the guy from disney channel!” They should defiently not use any “actors” (and I use that term loosely.) from disney channel or any from any kid or teen television show/movie. That would ruin the entire series, because half of those people have no acting skill what so ever.

    I just thought I would comment on this too, whoever said that Keke Palmer should play Dekka, I have one question for you: Are you F-in on drugs??

    Comment by emmy — May 21, 2010 @ 6:55 pm

  117. I would be so happy if this book were made into a movie, but i think a T.V. series would be awesome because there’s so mcuh that goes on in the book, that the movie could miss details and make it disappointing to people who love the books. A T.V. series would be able to hit more of the little deatils from the book. As far as actors, i think alex pettyfer for the part of Drake, Dylan Patton for the part of sam, selena gomez for Diana, meghan jette martin as astrid.

    Comment by Cassie — May 23, 2010 @ 9:58 am

  118. I would die if this ever became a movie or a TV show!!!!!! This book def has to be relized for what it is!!!!!! I think it should be an open casting call to regular teens thou….no disney actors, disney actors suck! but yah whoever said keke palmer should play Dekka your truley on crack!!!1 you kneed some on who is way tougher without being like idk…..her. but Dekka has spunk and carisma. Shes tough and she needs to be played by someone who can betray that. Not keke palmer. Dekka is AMAZING!!! but yah if it was a movie i would freak out so bad. I say do it!

  121. PLEASE make it a movie. So many people love these books. I crying out for at least something out there is interesting! Gone the movie, what a ring to it! A televison show would be cool, but maybe make it a mini-series so that it’s half a movie and half a t.v. show!

  123. Whoever does casting for Gone should visit Baldwin Wisconsin where a young talented man named Jacob Grafenstein lives. He looks exactly like Sam Temple on the cover of Gone. He has had a main character in all of the school plays.

  129. It would be totally awesome if they make it into a movie. Not a show, because I would always miss it. They ddfenitely need perfect people to play the parts of Sam, Astrid, Caine, Diana, and Quinn. They have to use the guy on the cover as Sam or someone as hot as him!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Monai — June 10, 2010 @ 3:51 pm

  130. I believe that this is a great opprotunity for more people to get informed on this amazing and sinister book series created by the godly, Michael Grant. For the actor problem that alot of people are talking about, I think that it would not be a problem because there aren’t any adult roles, I think it would just be an even better opprotunity for younger, aspiring actors to make it into their big break. The Gone series are without a doubt my favorite book series ever and I would very much love to see it be made into a movie. It could be very very VERY huge (dare do i say it but yes even bigger than the Twilight Saga movies) GONE ALL THE WAY!

    Comment by Cassidy — June 13, 2010 @ 7:58 pm

  132. Has anyone even considered who would direct the gone movie? I think stephen speilberg and michael bay should team up again for this movie. michael bay is great with special effects amd could make everyone’s mutant powers look good as well as the battle scenes,like the thanksgiving day battle or the battle with drake merwin at the power plant.stephen speilberg has the experience like when he directed the stunning E.T. or the action packed transformers movies. Do you agree?

  140. Sterling knight should defiantly NOT be caine! He has a freaky smile. I think the actors should look like the people on the cover.

    Comment by Bob — June 23, 2010 @ 11:49 am

  141. I think Guy Ritchie would work really well to direct the Gone movies. He did the Sherlock Holmes movie and is very good at working with the dark tones that are scene in the book. I dont think sterling knight would work as Caine I think he might work better as Sam because when he is composed and doesnt show emotion he looks very bland which isnt Caine at all. I know that this seems very odd but I have been told I look like the Diana from the cover of the books if anyone really cares to know. Cause as I was reading I was able to match up most characters besides her. But I love the books soooooo much :)

    Comment by Kiana — June 24, 2010 @ 7:55 pm

  142. Just don’t let them do an Eragon/Lightning Thief type flop! Please! I’m BEGGING YOU ON MY KNEES!!! Too many of my favorite books are being twisted and mangled almost beyond recognition on screen! It would be so incredibly awesome to finally have a book-movie adaption that actually closely followed the book! If this movie gets messed up…

    Comment by David — June 26, 2010 @ 6:50 pm

  143. I really, really want this movie to come out because Gone was such an amazing book (same as the whole series). But I feel like this movie would be twisted into something stupid and nothing like the book. Like I’m gonna get pumped about this movie and Hollywood would screw it over. I agree with David

    Comment by Kiani — June 30, 2010 @ 2:47 pm

  144. well, kiana, its mentioned several times throughout the books that sam is very nonsecretive with his emotions. besides, no emotion is diferent than trying to stay low.
    also, sterling knight, as pointed out earlier, is not in the right age group. sorry, but ya gotta follow the books guidelines if you dont want the movie to flop.
    this is the BEST SERIES EVER!!!!! i DO NOT wanna see it screwed up, thats all…

    Comment by Andrew — July 1, 2010 @ 8:45 am

  145. In the book Astrid makes a comparison between Caine and Sam saying that Caine always has this confidence and this brovado (Im pretty sure I spelt that wrong) and Sam doesnt really have that. Sam is more real I guess you could say. Are you really saying that Sam doesnt show emotion because I believe he does. Not meaning to be rude. Sterling Knight does the show Sunny with a chance and he plays someone who is about 15 years old in that show. So I didnt know that he was that old. Sorry for not being a stalker. I also think that the director that did the first pirates of the carribean movie would work well as a director. Just saying.

    Comment by Kiana — July 1, 2010 @ 9:35 pm

  146. I think that for an adaptation of the books to be successful the characters/animals and location could all be changed to attract the majority. Imagine a graphic darker version of the book. And a darker setting too, imagine the book set in a big city, you could still stay true to the central plot but there’d be so much more room for expansion rather than a small town. I’d personally like to see the movies made for an older audience. If it was ever made I certainly hope they wouldn’t go all ‘Twilight’ on us. I want to see a mature director and cast. Personal preference would be the guys behind Kick-Ass. It was a movie about kids for adults. It was gripping, dark, funny, violent and had an exceptional soundtrack to match. Wishful thinking, I’d choose any of the following to helm the project; Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen), J J Abrams (Star Trek), Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, Snatch) or Quentin Tarantino. I’m sick of books being butchered when they’re turned into movies. The story is fantastic but not ideal for the big screen. We shouldn’t be afraid of change but embrace it. If some creative minds came together and loosely based a movie on the books, ‘Gone’ could be the next mega franchise.

    Comment by Hugh — July 2, 2010 @ 1:41 am

  147. I think you should not make it into a TV series it would ruin it , imagine Twilight as a TV series or Harry potter, it makes me shiver.

    You want this Saga to be up there with Twilight and Harry Potter and I KNOW it will!!!

    Soooooo excited buying the Hunger Book soon coz all the hardbacks have been soldout in the UK so I have to wait till september untill the publisher prints some mooorrreee!!!!

    Comment by Jesse — July 3, 2010 @ 3:45 pm

  148. This would make SUCH a cool movie! I spent a while looking up if it was going to be made into a movie, and then I found this web-site and I looked at the Michael Grant video and saw that this might be made into a movie. I got SOOOOO excited.
    I agree with everyone who said that the people on the front and back cover would be PERFECT for the part. Sam and Astrid on the cover would be AMAZING! The only other option that I think would be cool for Sam is the person who played Percy Jackson in ‘the Lighning Thief’. That would be cool. On the back cover, the dude with the black hair and Coates uniform is Caine, for sure. But I’m not sure who the girl to the left of him (Caine’s right) is? Could you tell me if you know?
    Please commen when you know when the movie is being made or (even better) coming out. Thanks!

    Comment by Bridget — July 4, 2010 @ 11:53 am

  149. All i have too say is alot of those actors are older and look older. i TOTALLY agree with you on Logan lerman to play caine. That would be pretty understandible. That would actually work out really well. <3 Dekka…My favorite character in the book, should not be played by keke palmer! i think she's to i don't know, less getto. I think that if a movie was made you have to get a real black girl to play her. yes i'm black and i would actually love to play her. I agree with what alot of these people said, you cant have big stars really acting in this. You get the coming out stars. I think Brianna should be Chloe Moretz. Sam is hard to cast or even give a face to a name. Quinn seems like he should be laid back but you know the typical surfer physic if you'd say. Cayden Boyd would be good for either Sam or Quinn. I think thou it would be great to do the Auditions in the states but still have those actors from hollywood. THIS WOULD BE A GREAT MOVIE, if done correctly.

    Comment by ashee, in kcmo — July 6, 2010 @ 6:51 pm

  152. I think this movie would be great no matter what. But I’ve never heard of Chloe Moretz or Cayden Boyd. Are they in any popular movies? And, I do think that the people on the front and back covers would be great for the film, but the problem is… those people are most likely models, not actors. But they still would be great for the part if any of them have some acting experience.

    Can’t wait for the movie!!!! ♥♥♥♥♥☺

    Comment by Bridget — July 7, 2010 @ 10:06 am

  153. I don’t think Sterling Knight should play anyone in this movie. He’s too old and if he were to play Sam, the book describes sam waaaaay different than Sterling Night.

    Comment by Bridget — July 7, 2010 @ 10:10 am

  154. Sterling Knight should NOT NOT NOT!!! Be Caine. Caine is described to have dark eyes, dark hair. Sorry, Sterling, but he is blonde and has blue eyes. In ‘Sonny With a Chance’ Sterling Knight passes off for 16 or 17. He’d have to pass for 14 which I don’t think he can do, considering his actual age. I’m not trying to put him down, but I don’t think he’s right for the part.

  156. Only a few things are required to make this a perfect movie.

    1)NO BIG NAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    2)Good director.
    3)Good soundtrack
    4)Open auditions for every character before you pick, in multiple countries.
    5)ME! (haha jk… although, if you hold auditions on the East Coast of Cananda I would deffinatly try out)

    It has fantastic potential, it just needs those four things[or five;)]. Good luck, Michael!!! I seriously hope this works out.

  157. briget,
    I dont know what to classify Chloe Mortez as but she’s was in Kick-Ass, 500 days of summer and Diary of a wimpy kid. She’s a little bit more known than Cayden Boyd I think, im not a hundred percent positive, but it hink he was in Shark boy and lava girl. I agree about you with sterling knight thou……

    Comment by carly wyche — July 7, 2010 @ 8:53 pm

  158. Sterling Knight shouldnt be aloud anywhere near the movie in my opinion. But I think that this would be a good oppritunity for young aspiring actors and actresses to really try and make it into such a rough business. I think that this particular project calls for some major open casting calls all over the United States at the very least. The kids in the books are like everyday kids. so who better to play them than us everyday kids?

    Comment by Kiana — July 8, 2010 @ 2:08 am

  159. Yeah, I agree with Kiana. Everyday kids = everday kids! we know what it’s like (the everyday kids part, not our parents disapearing behind a inpenitrable wall:)) but most of us might not have some acting experience.

    Carly-
    i looked at a pic of Chloe, TOTALLY! She would be PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT for Brianna, I think. Cayden Boyd… I dunno. It’s a possobilty. buy definiatly an option.

    Comment by Bridget — July 8, 2010 @ 2:38 pm

  160. A TV series? Nah… It’d be too… weird. A movie? Fo’ Sho’ (for sure) I L♥VE GONE!!!

    Comment by Bridget — July 9, 2010 @ 5:36 pm

  161. I would rather they made it into a tvsries that a movie then they can take time with each part intsed of rushing and ruining a great story like they did with the last airbender and eragon

    Comment by anyomous — July 10, 2010 @ 5:53 pm

  162. I think it would be better as an awesome and fast paced movie rather than a tv series. the first book takes place in like 11 or 12 days and idk how that could possibly be made into a tv series and then the second two have even shorter time spans. Idk how Lies could be a like a season because its less than a week. I dont think it would be possible.

    Comment by Kiana — July 12, 2010 @ 2:04 pm

  163. I loved Eragon. Great movie. Last airbender? Nahh…

    Comment by Bridget — July 12, 2010 @ 3:18 pm

  164. I recently finished reading Lies and it seemed to me that there was some sense of closure…apart from the flu going around. Is Plague going to come out along with Darkness and Light? Or is the series over?

    Comment by Eliza — July 13, 2010 @ 12:58 am

  165. I’ve only read GONE. What is the next one called???

    Comment by Bridget — July 14, 2010 @ 11:17 am

  166. the next one is called HUNGER followed by LIES

    Comment by Kiana — July 16, 2010 @ 7:10 pm

  167. I know that this is an old post…but…
    I really do hope that they will make these books into movies. They would be phenomenal..IF they got a cast that both looks like the characters, and can act. =]
    Also, I think it would be a high-budget movie because of the special effects and everything that would have to look real..
    I’m really hoping that it will be made into a movie! xD

    Comment by Gianna — July 17, 2010 @ 12:33 am

  168. That’s not an old post! I ope it is a movie. It’d be GREAT! I don’t know what the other books would be good for movies because I haven’t read them. BUt still.

    Comment by Bridget — July 18, 2010 @ 11:40 am

  169. dear michael grant and possible gone producers and movie makers,
    i have read all the books in the gone series and it would be my dream to be cast as a role if they were made into a movie. I think that this is a great idea and I would love to be apart of it.

    Comment by brianna — July 20, 2010 @ 4:33 pm

  170. i love sam!!!!!!(if u couldnt tell by my email) lol. sam temple rocks!! hes hot smart surfer he amazinggggggggggg. i hope there is a movie they would be greattttt cuz the books were amazing 2. when i was reading the books i couldnt put then down they was amazingg!!! i read hunger in one night. i think u should put the guy on the front cover of gone who plays sam to play sam in yhe movie cuz it would be gay to like really change up the ppl. I LOVE U SAM TEMPLE!!! U R MY HERO!! <3

    Comment by nikki — July 21, 2010 @ 9:50 am

    Comment by Jenifer — July 27, 2010 @ 12:13 am

  175. a movie would be totally awesome! but dont make it into a tv show it would ruin it. and i agree with a lot of yall they should use the people on the cover. and if it is called plague wen is it suppose to come out? im almost done with lies and i dont want to wait forever these books are awesome one of my favorite series!

    Comment by Craig — July 27, 2010 @ 10:25 pm

  176. Gone, Hunger, and Lies were all amazingly fantastic books!!!!!! If they make a movie/ TV series, my only wish is for there to be an equally amazing cast, because you can’t just throw anyone into playing such great roles. Long live the FAYZ!!!!

    Comment by Ki-Jana — July 27, 2010 @ 11:02 pm

  177. @Jenifer – Well, Mr. Grant has said there will be six books, titled Plague, Darkness and Light. At least, that’s what Wikipedia said. :)

    Comment by Ki-Jana — July 27, 2010 @ 11:25 pm

  178. Sorry, *the next three will be titled…*

    Comment by Ki-Jana — July 27, 2010 @ 11:25 pm

  179. I’m sorry to upset some people, but I twittered Michael grant asking him about a movie/tv deal and he said “The movie is not likely. They want adult characters. I don’t have any.” :( I’m upset about it, but at least we have 3 more books in the series to be excited about. I still hope something will happen, although I would probably want it to be a tv miniseries, like “The Pillars of the Earth”. Mostly because miniseries are usually more faithful to the books, and they would be able to fit everything in the show, instead of having to cram and leave some things out which would happen with a movie. Either way though, I would really love for them to have open auditions nationwide for the parts. I think it would really be fun to play the part of Diana, and I know a lot of people would also love to play parts, or at least be given the chance to audition. Also, I would hate to see a known actor play any part in the adaption, and there are a lot of undiscovered talented people that would end up doing a better job. But hopefully, something (either a movie or tv miniseries) will be made.

  185. I just finished this book and am dying to get my hands on the second book!! and it would be even greater if a movie would come out! im sick of the vampires! make a movie series that doesnt involve vampires!!! (hint, hint) (;

    Comment by Brianna — August 5, 2010 @ 7:09 am

  186. omg i just read the book and it is amazing! it should totally be a tv series or movie but hopefully not to much gore should be in it. i also would like people who actually look like the people in the book. (movies and tv shows usually kill the characters actual appeal). I really want them to use actual special effects; for each of the kids powers.e.g drake and his whip hand, sam with his sammy lights etc. etc. Hopee this becomes a awesomee moviee! hahaa and i agree with you brianna. SO sick of vampires!

    Comment by Zehra — August 6, 2010 @ 9:49 pm

  187. Please make gone as a movie! I really loved the book!!

    Comment by Silje — August 7, 2010 @ 8:15 am

  188. I think that if Gone was turned into a moie or a television series, it would go one of two ways for me. Either it would be even more amazing than the books, (which is hard to believe) or it could completely ruin the way that i invisioned those characters and would not be a success in my eyes. However, if it is sucessful i think it would be wonderful for the story to be forever remembered because I just can’t get enough of the fayz.

  191. Dude gone would be the most coolest movie ever. i mean the the books were great soooooooooooooo good that i made my own game plan if that ever happend….

    Comment by hailey — August 11, 2010 @ 10:15 pm

  192. yeah it would totally work as a movie just so long as they dont skimp and get shitty acters and b-grade sets and effects and shit. if ur gunna do it go 100%!

    Comment by gilbert — August 16, 2010 @ 4:28 am

  193. this was the most amazing book ever i’m 13 i read gone but then i coulndt get the next books for a while when i finally got them i read both in just a week! i really hope gone is going to be a movie cuz it totally deservers to be a movie and i bet it will have a top rank when it hits movie theatres

    Comment by Maddy Nykolaishyn — August 16, 2010 @ 9:55 am

  194. Yeah, this book would be a great movie. If any known actors are put in, I couldn’t picture them as one of the charecters. Say, if Emily Osment were to play Astrid, I couldn’t picture her as Astrid, I would picture her as Lily from Hannah Montana. Many talente people are out there, and they want a chance to go to the big time. I REALLY hope this will be a movie. It’s my favorite book EVER! I ♥ GONE!!!!

    Comment by Bridget — August 17, 2010 @ 4:25 pm

  195. Gone was my all time favorite book. but im not sure they should make it into a movie unless it has some killer effects(for like their powers)and if they had amazing actors and didnt change much at all. if they had the people that pose for Sam,Astrid,Caine,Diana etc. on the book covers as the said charactars,it would be awesome!!! but if its not good, it might change the way i think of the book, like the twilight movies did to the books for me. I <3 the Gone Series!

    Comment by Claudia — August 18, 2010 @ 10:22 pm

  196. I think a movie would be much better and more memorable than a TV series. A TV series would be too spread out.

    Comment by Evan — August 27, 2010 @ 2:00 pm

  197. This is who i think should play the characters:
    Sam – William Moseley
    Astrid – Annasophia Robb
    Pete – Ty Panitz
    Caine – Sterling Knight
    Diana – Kaya Scodelario
    Drake – Jamie Campbell Bower
    Orc – Cameron Bright
    Albert – Malcolm David Kelley
    Lana – Saoirse Ronan
    Now, im aware that these kids don’t look exactly like the ones on the book cover. I chose them based on their acting ability, and how good they were at similar roles to their character… Debate!
    P.S. they might have to gain/lose weight or change hair color. do not let something that simple be a deciding factor.

    Comment by myles — August 28, 2010 @ 12:45 am

  198. oh btw i should add that i am a film maker… and unless you have an adult cast, your not going to have a movie. The actors i have listed do look slightly too old for the roles so the age limit on the fayz might have to be pushed to 16 for the movie. DONT KILL ME. Changes have to be made for a movie to be successful. I also believe the director should be Bryan Singer (Director of X-men 1&2)

    It will be an extremely difficult to get a cast of young people to perform at theater quality. That is most likely the reason that production companies are shying away from Michael Grant on the idea. Also, for all of you who want the people on the cover to play the roles, those are models not actors. In additon, “No names” can not headline a movie, Hollywood just won’t buy it. Plus, open casting around the country would be entirely to expensive.

    I do not mean to sound pessimistic, but i work in this industry and that’s just how things are (unfortunately). Best wishes to you Michael Grant, if this is done correctly it could be the next Lord of the Flies.

But i woluld really love to see a animorph movie. I used to be into the books myself and i never really got back into it because i didnt see it going anywhere. But, anyways, i love the gone book. The best book series ive ever read. Please publish the next one already. Im dying of anisipation.

    Comment by jake — September 18, 2010 @ 10:34 pm

  206. Turn the gone series into a tv series. You can put alot more into it and there are alot of places in the book you could leave off at for the end of a show. Plus, each seson could be a book. Gone Season 2:Hunger,ect.

    Comment by Mario55436 — September 19, 2010 @ 12:08 am

  207. I LOVE GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think it should be a movie, not a serie. and the actors could be the people on the cover and the back of the books and im the cast you all proposed (except the ones that are as genius as me) is all wrong. The movie needs to be a movie with a big budget because of the powers and the fights. Also because of the disapearance of the evryone of 14 (i think) and up. Even though I read the books in french(IM FROM QUEBEC!!!!!!) i love them and cant wait ot read lies and company. My favorite character from the book is Brianna or Pete, im still not sure.

    Comment by solange — September 30, 2010 @ 10:14 am

  210. TV series would be awesome because you wouldn’t have to cut loads out – as long as they stuck 2 the books, Movies of kids’ books almost always suck and movies of book series ALWAYS suck.
    TV series – as long as stupid American TV producers don’t cancel it after 1 season – producers are so stupid in America they cancel good shows and leave awful shows going. Wouldn’t happen in the UK, when i went there their drama was always real quality.

I would so like to play like Astrid or somthing I love acting and have been to like acting camp + I’ve took courses and everything!. If you ceck this website out and are the director please contact me! I’m serious!!!.

    Comment by Shay — October 1, 2010 @ 7:27 pm

  212. I think that Gone would work better as a T.V. series. So many movies based off of a book or T.V. series leave a lot out. If it was a show it would allow more story to be told and it would be awesomely EPIC!!!!

    Comment by Matt Wicks — October 2, 2010 @ 7:56 pm

    Gone is the best books i have EVER read! and im reading quiet a lott!!!!

    Comment by bendik — October 5, 2010 @ 8:49 am

  214. Ok, Gone was seriouslly the most amazing book I have ever read! I love thew drama and excitement in the book. I’m planning on going to Barnes and Noble tonight or tomorrow to purchase Hunger. And when I’m done reading that I’ll be on to Lies! I hope Gone gets made into a movie. Taylor Lautner could play Edilio. That would be awesome! I like the idea of a TV show, somebody else had commented that. Michael Grant is a brilliant writer (I want to be a a writer too). For a school project, I’m making a board game out of Gone. It’s going to be like “help Sam get to the finish line before he runs out of time and he poofs!” Thank goodness he doesn’t poof in the book though haha.

    Comment by Natasha — October 7, 2010 @ 6:38 pm

  215. Omfg if gone became a movie I would soooo camp out infront of the movie theater just to be one of the first to see it..
    P.s. I don’t think that if you had a while bunch of teenagers doing a tv show would work with puberty and all that fun stuff with the age range and what not the characters would change and might not be able to do the next season and then it’s either replace the person or cancel the show and either way it will suck if you cancel it or change the actor

    Comment by Arianna — October 10, 2010 @ 1:09 am

  216. i think Caine would/should be played by Reed Alexander. That’s how I picture Caine. So, I think whoever this Sterling Knight guy is, he shouldn’t be Caine! I hope the town of Perdido Beach keeps its original design. (the last few pages of each book has a map) Otherwise, my whole idea is messed up :b
    I have no clue who should be who (Apart from Caine, who BTW is really cool!) but if this film is to be made, it should be released about this time 2011, or 2012. (its 2010 now) The same w/ a tv show. Tnx! -The Character you never hear about

    Comment by Fanny — October 19, 2010 @ 4:36 am

  222. It would make a very good movie if they make it true to the book but the problem is taht is such a huge book! and making it into to movies may be easier but there aren’t exactly a lot of places to split it into two so i think a TV series wuold be better if you had like 26 episodes (1 a week).

    Comment by ben(-hur) — October 23, 2010 @ 4:44 pm

  224. Ok guys: not to be rude, but, reality check! Go up to the 197 and 198 comment by ‘myles’. it says he is a film maker and he has a LOT of good stuff to say. And sterling knight should NOT NOT NOT!!! play caine or ANY ONE! i’m sorry but he just doesn’t fit anything in the book at all. I’m not trying to b rude or mean or anything but… It would acrually be a better idea to make it a tv series because they wouldnt leave a billion things out, they could make each book a different series (like Mario 55436 said) and it would sort of (depending on how they play it out) serve the book(s) justice. I never actually read Inkheart, but I heard the movie ruined the book. If this book was made into either a movie or a tv series (preferrably a tv series) it could be as huge as Harry Potter. Which I read and was the best book series in the world! I haven’t finished the GONE series but I bet it’ll either be tied or… IDK but it’s gonna be up there in the top 2! Harry Potter the movie will be coming out November 19, 2010. The 7 movie, to be exact. I CAN’T WAIT FOR GONE TO BE A MOVIE OR TV SERIES IF IT IS MADE INTO EITHER ONE!!! Ooooh please oh please oh PUH-LEASE!!! make gone into a movie or series of television;). It could be a MAJOR hit!! Please seriously consider iT! I’m a HUH-YUGE FANNNN!

  226. i think a tv sseries woujld be better as there would be more detaiill on the book and less skipping of the good parts, sure , amovie would have more fans, but i think it would be a bit like misfits or heroes which are really popular!

    Comment by ell123123 — October 27, 2010 @ 7:22 am

  227. Yeah, at first i thought i DID NOT want a TV series, but then I realized that, yes, there would be more detail, there would be more of them ;) and each season could be a book. Such as:
    Season 1: GONE
    Season 2: HUNGER
    ECT. ECT….

    Love and Hugs!!!

  230. This would be awesome as a movie or TV series.
    If a TV series, they should get more no-named actors so that it doesn’t get boring.
    If a movie, bring a few recognisable actors into it so that people will feel like they already know the characters in a round about way.

    Comment by Elena Flores — November 23, 2010 @ 12:07 am

  239. I’ve read all 3 of the books and got them all signed by Michael, I realy realy want to see this made into a movie AND a TV series, I put my hand up for being Sam but I can’t say I can shoot laser’s from my hands!

    Comment by Thomas Bester-Lowe — November 23, 2010 @ 5:36 pm

  240. i love the story and it is different than many of the books i have read. they are so good that i read them in 3 days. i just wish there was a movie to the series, hopefully there will be.

    Comment by tatiana escobar — November 24, 2010 @ 4:35 pm

  241. Best. Idea. Ever.

    I thought Twilight was the best book ever but step aside!
    I bought the book originally only because the yellow pages caught my eye, i needed a book for my holiday so i decided to go for it, i spent 3 weeks in California and hoped to strech it out but only managed to stretch it over about 3 days because it was so frikkin amazing!

    I’ve just read hunger now and can’t wait to read lies :D

    A movie would be the best thing ever, and as a budding actress i would love the idea of ‘nobody’s’ being cast in it *wink wink* All of the three girls parts i find amazingly interseting, Lana, Astrid and Diana.

    Bring on the movie for Gone and don’t stop!
    Please please Michael keep on writing those books!

    Lots of love, Sammi :)

    Comment by Sammi — November 27, 2010 @ 6:34 am

  242. And no Jessi, we can’t :)

    Go and read it.

    What’s the point in having it summed up?

  257. You need to make the movie! I am reading the book for the sixth time, and I love it! You would make a lot of people really happy if you made a movie! Plus, you could make other movies, like Hunger, which I have not yet read…

    itll be a gr8 hit

    Comment by FanOfGone — December 23, 2010 @ 11:45 am

  264. Please make the GONE series into a movie!!NOT a TV show!I LOVE the books!They’re the best books ever!I can’t wait for Plague to come out!If you can’t figure who plays the characters, why not just get the guys in the cover of the books to make the movie???I think they’re perfect:D!Or at least they look perfect!What are they’re names anyway?The guy in the cover as Caine looks HOT. He should definitely be Caine in the movie(NOT tv show).He’s my fav character:)))Or have an open casting because people from Disney pretty much suck. It would be cool if the movie had brand new actors!It would be so much better than old actors/actresses. Contact me if you need someone for the movie PLEASE;)
    And myles(from comments #197 and 198)none of your requests are even close to the characters in the book and they could not pass as fourteen year olds, in other words you suck.No offense:)

    Comment by Marene — December 23, 2010 @ 6:00 pm

  265. yay a gone movie awesome!!!!!
    but it better be good and exact tothe book cause so many booklovers have been disappointed with so many other movies based on books, like the golden compass. great book, weird movie.

    Comment by Izzy — December 23, 2010 @ 6:39 pm

  266. hi my name is Rachel Howse . i love these books i kind had a dream about Drake … please Michael Grant email me about the Gone books and movie ( baseball.player.number9@hotmail.com )

    Comment by Rachel Howse — December 25, 2010 @ 10:56 pm

  267. omgg i hope gone becomes a movie i just know it would b a hit!! i would love love LOVE to play astrid, any info for the auditions i would lovee if you guys told me!

    Comment by rebecca — December 27, 2010 @ 3:13 pm

  268. Hey michale im liam Cain (yes cain spooky huh?) just wundering out of these 3 charactes whos your fave? drake , sam ,astrid , orc or all of them.(my fave is drake)

    Comment by Liam — December 27, 2010 @ 11:59 pm

  269. I got gone hunger and lies for christmas and have finished gone and am halfway threw hunger THEY NEED TO MAKE A MOVIE not a tv show.no big stars we need new people we have never heard of or seen before.they can not leave out bits out like rhe church wall falling down and stuff like that

    Comment by chris — December 28, 2010 @ 2:42 pm

  270. I agree with everyone that the cast should be people we dont know and it should be a movie but they might cut out parts of it… :(
    They should let ordinary people audition cuz id like to be Dekka (if she wasnt lesbian)or Orsay :)

    Comment by celine — December 29, 2010 @ 6:44 pm

  271. And I live in England so HOPEFULLY they would audition people here..

    Comment by celine — December 29, 2010 @ 6:48 pm

  272. I have been thinking about it and i don’t think that anyone overly famous should star in it; we need some new talented stars to shine through! I think instead of Annasophia Robb as Breeze maybe her as Astrid(somebody way above suggested her to play breeze number 25 was the comment). She kind of has that look that makes me think of Astrid.

    Comment by Nala — December 30, 2010 @ 10:58 am

  273. yes. That would be great if they did auditions in England because I and many other people would love to audition to..I would love to play as Sam.. although the possibility of playing sam would be slim..It would still be great to Audition :) I’m 14 though so I would not know what age you would have to be to audition.

    Comment by Daniel — December 30, 2010 @ 2:32 pm

  274. I think a t.v show would be interesting, however it might not work well – it all depends on how they choose what will be in each episode.
    A film would be awesome as well :D I agree with not having loads of well known actors, but I do think it will have some as it would encourage more people who haven’t read the book to go see it. But No Disney.
    I would prefer a t.v show because then you can continue to watch it and it wont be as likely to die out as a film is. I don’t think Annasophia Robb should be Astrid, i dont know why she just doesnt fit for me XD

    Comment by Low — December 30, 2010 @ 2:42 pm

  275. I have adored the Gone, Hunger and Lies books and I think that it would make a great movie exept it might be a bit difficult with the whole Drake thing and flying snakes and all that. also it wouldn’t be a kid movie at all cause of the violence and stuff, so that might not work. but I would definitely go see it! If it was well done it would be awesome as!

    Comment by Kiara — December 30, 2010 @ 8:13 pm

  276. Just seen the interview with Habbo. Man it makes me really sad that they’re having dificulty trying to get the movie going because they need adults and famous actors to get the movie going :(

    Comment by Daniel — December 31, 2010 @ 12:06 pm

  277. some r saying that the people on the covers would b good for the characters (which they r). but haven’t u noticed that the people on the covers of ‘Gone’ and maybe even ‘Hunger’ are alot older now than when the pics were taken? i’m 1 for new faces.

    and i just want to hear something new concerning a movie! i’v been a fan of gone since the 1st book was released, they’v got to make a movie before it fades and/or the whole series (bookwise) is realeased. but he’s only releasing 1 book or so every year…
    and i wanna try out, i’d b good as Taylor or Lana. (like i said b4) and i don’t know where he lives, but he has to have auditions in the U.S and Europe at least. (i live in the U.S) he has so many fans!

    Comment by kennyd — December 31, 2010 @ 2:05 pm

  278. I’m pretty sure that every fan would like to play a part in the movie.

    Comment by Nala — January 3, 2011 @ 12:57 pm

  279. If gone,hunger or lies in2 a movie i think Max Morrow(conner undercover)shod b drake.Dianna cod b played by Lola Tash (also from conner undercover)

    Comment by Liam — January 4, 2011 @ 12:09 am

  280. Please do your story as a movie it’s gonna be the popular movie for 2010 ! :) <3

    Comment by lieth — January 4, 2011 @ 8:07 am

  281. It would be AWESOME if “gone” was made into a movie. If there was auditions for astrid i would sooo be there. :D

    Comment by Abbie — January 4, 2011 @ 9:53 pm

  282. Come to NewZealand for Auditions for Astrid. I would be PERFECt for her. If it does become a movie, make sure that you advertise auditions world wide almost. :D

    Comment by Abbie — January 4, 2011 @ 9:55 pm

  283. I think you should just leave it at books! No movies or TV shows! It would ruin its special effect. Yes, it seems like it’d be amazing with the graphics and everything, but it just takes away from the joy of the book.

    Comment by Tyler — January 4, 2011 @ 11:35 pm

  284. Also just look at some of the movies that were made after books. Some were good, but some just sucked. Gone isn’t meant to be a movie.

    Comment by Tyler — January 4, 2011 @ 11:54 pm

  285. make auditions in cali too ik loads of pple who would love to be int he movie and are fascinated with the book!
    i mean who wouldnt be fascinated with the gone series!!!

    Comment by Elena Flores — January 7, 2011 @ 11:17 pm

  286. I can’t wait! This would be an outstanding movie from an amazing book!
    And P.S. I love your hat! Haha.

    Comment by Megan D. — January 8, 2011 @ 8:35 pm

  287. Gone should definatley be made into a movie =D(: Maybe it is a good idea to make it a tvo part movie to fit more in. But a lot of fans would get frustrated with having to wait. LOL:D the GONE series should DEFINATLEY

    Comment by Lachie — January 9, 2011 @ 1:18 am

  288. BE MADE INTO A MOVIE. pushed the wrong button lol

    Comment by Lachie — January 9, 2011 @ 1:19 am

    Comment by JT — January 9, 2011 @ 1:03 pm

  290. Gone…the best book I have ever read please make it into a movie. This book was super exciting and I have been trying to convince many to read it. I can’t wait to finish Hunger and keep moving on in this series.

    Comment by Dillan P. — January 13, 2011 @ 2:46 pm

  291. Must. Be. Made. Into. A. Movie. Like, now. :]

    Comment by Eva — January 15, 2011 @ 1:11 pm

  292. It would be awesome if it was made into a moviee! The books are one of my favorite series I’ve ever read! If it was being made into a movie or a TV show, I’d love to audition for the role of Astrid. (:

    Comment by Nikki — January 16, 2011 @ 12:10 pm

  293. Not to be a downer, cuz i TOTALLY want GONE and stuff to be a movie, but this whole thing (above ^) has been going on since august of ‘09. If they wanted to put hundreds of thousands of dollars, possibly millions, they would’ve either 1. Made the movie or 2. at least said something about it. I’m still rooting for a TV show or movie though!!

    Comment by Emily — January 17, 2011 @ 9:32 pm

  294. hey, im back. (comments 197 &198). i would just like everyone to know that Marene (comment 264) is an idiot. all my character suggestions are awesome!! ;) I realize that these kids can’t pass for 14, that’s why the age for the movie should be pushed to 16…. ALSO, and more importantly i heard disney recently rejected the story, which was kind of grant’s last hope since turned down by paramount, lionsgate etc. welp, at least we have the rest of the books to look forward too!

    Comment by Myles — January 18, 2011 @ 12:58 am

  295. How about also making it an anime??? i think it would be a great hit. A 12 episode anime :)

    Comment by Abraham — January 18, 2011 @ 11:41 am

  296. yeah. The books are good and there doesn’t have to be a movie to show how good the gone books are :) a movie would’ve been great but still…books are awesome :D

  298. I think they should make it a movie because the acting is better and i find it to be more memorable. i love the books their amzing!!! please make it a movie!!! not a tv series!!! the acting and actors are much much much better!!!!!!!

    Comment by Emozy — January 29, 2011 @ 10:24 pm

  299. I think a 2 part film like Harry potter 7. to fit more of the book into it. However, be careful of the actors and the director. also have Michael Grant involved in writing the movie script.

    Comment by AGoneFan — February 9, 2011 @ 4:28 pm

  300. If they were made into movie or show thatd be awesomeeee!! And I don’t think that ‘normal’ ppl could audition because that probably costs alot of money to audition and if they were to audition all over the country and into Europe then that would cost TONS of money, though I would loovvvve to be Astrid, even though I don’t really look like her….! And Myles is very information-y. He said that disney turned him down and that was like his ‘last hope’ but I hope it’s not I want it to be made into a movie SOOO much!! or a tv show, NE things good w/ me!!

    Comment by Emily — February 9, 2011 @ 5:25 pm

  301. The moment I finished this book, it became my favorite It’s so awesome that it’s being turned into movie! I will definitely watch it. But don’t make it into a TV show. It will lose some of that… effect you can only really get in movies. I’m sooooo happyyyy!!!!!! Good luck with the movie!

    Comment by Charmine — February 11, 2011 @ 6:17 am

  302. I believe you need to make a book out of gone it was a fonominal book full of suspence and power

    Comment by trevor ford — February 14, 2011 @ 3:39 pm

  303. WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!

    Gone has to be made into a movie, but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, not a TV series. I would get bored!! use unknown but DECENT actors, that would make it more interseting :)

    Will the effects be as good as the effects used in the lies trailer?

    I AM SOOOO LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THIS!!!!!!!!

    (If it comes out of course)

    Comment by Nudge — February 15, 2011 @ 1:59 pm

  304. OMG! The Gone books is so good!I really love your writing Michael! I can’t wait to read “Plague”. I have red MANY books and this serie is one of the best that I have ever red!

    It had been so fun to watch the movie if it was made and I know many would see it.I have red some of the comments, but do anyone have somthing new stuff about it? Will it be made a movie of it or not?

    I understand that it is hard to find someone that want to make this movie, but please… it’s a destiny that it will be a movie of it, i know just it! btw: sorry for my english..

    Comment by norwayfan — February 16, 2011 @ 10:59 am

  305. michael grant is a GOD. i could’nt be bothered reading a 100 page novel, but the moment i picked up gone i was through it in 2 weeks, im reading through hunger now and its just as awesome as the first (if not better). so thank you for finally getting me interested in reading

    Comment by Dylan — February 17, 2011 @ 6:21 am

  306. I’m 14 and i hate[d] reading, but when i saw this book, i just read the whole series. A lot of books that are turned into movies sometimes suck but I think Gone would be a great movie ! I don’t think it should be a TV series because it would probably just go on and on and on and people would get bored of it. Someone said, up there ^^^ that Disney rejected it, well duh. This book doesnt go along with Disney. It’s more like Sci-Fi. Well I hope it will someday be a movie !(:

    Comment by Kaitlin — February 19, 2011 @ 1:03 am

  307. I was really into having a Gone movie, and still am :D

    However it does not matter if a movie is not made because the books are still there and thats what counts

  311. I hope they don’t pull a Percy Jackson though, and make it horrible. Sterling Knight should stay at least 1,000 feet away from the movie at all times. Along with Keke Palmer.

    Comment by Jazie — February 26, 2011 @ 9:24 am

  312. PLEASE make gone into a movie! My dad got me to read it and it was amazing! They really get you hooked on the story line! It would be AWSOME if you made the serries into a movie! Please do it for all us gone book fans!!!! :) thanksXx

  315. The gone books are incredible. However, personally, i think that a tv show could be really cool, and maybe better. One it would make the amazing adventure carry on for weeks, and two, they could fit so much more in!!! also, anyone who has not read the gone series must read them. they are classic!

    Love you michael grant!!!

    Comment by Liam — March 13, 2011 @ 7:37 am

  321. I think “Gone” would be an amazing film. It would have some issues…

    1. Special effects, it would ruin the effect of the book and how you think things would look like, the part that gives your a personal expiriance.

    2. Characters, People will be upset that the actors dont look like they would in theyre imagination, wich is one of the things I think makes a book, “a GOOD book”

    3. Fans, you would lose some, and gain some fans. Genraly, it will increase porffit and fan base. Like the effect “Harry Potter the movie” had on the book. It was far less popular when it was just a book.

    ——————————————————-
    But to be honest you should

    JUST MAKE IT INTO A FILM!

    Comment by Drew — March 17, 2011 @ 2:00 pm

  322. I think GONE is an absolutly amazing series, no doubt about it. i think that either a TV show or movie would suffice. I like the idea about having fresh faces do the acting, but i agree with myles, it would be very time consuming and expensive. As much as i think the movie/TV show will be, i dont think that they will be able to capture the character images we have or the brilliance thatt Michael has created. So i think that we should leave it untouched and unspoiled so that if they do a terrible job of the movie (which will probably be the case) the book will be just as amazing. I dont mean to be a hater or anything, but using logic and reason, this makes the most sense.
    And P.S Sterling Knight would do a terrible job, no matter what role he had, most disney characters are for show- not for talent.
    P.P.S actors- no matter how big the name- should play the role which they fit best!
    All the best for Michael, and the future of the series, i am looking forward to all of your future works.

  323. hi Michael, i was wondering if you could get in touch with the casting director because i would like to audition for the role of Astrid,Diana or Brianna.I LOVE ACTING and I’m a huge fan of your books and i find that I’m just like Diana somehow in every way.Acting is my specialty. I am 14 years old and will be 15 on May 7th this year (2011).Everyone i know says i should take acting further.My only problem is i live in the UK, when the auditions start please could you base them in England Luton or London.Thanks. My appearance i as follows:
    Black wavy-curly Hair, Brown eyes(dark),Not that tall,Freckles and I’m mixed race-black white and little Asian.

  324. I love this book and really hope there will be a movie or tv series.

  327. Yes I know, here I am again, its that it sucks so bad when producers, and the the cast of movie making do a bad job, on wich i mean, not getting the details, characters apperance, or the actors not being able to be the character that we all have in our heads. I really hate it when that happens, wich it mostly does, but a lot of time and contribution into it, i think that we can pull it off, thats if there is a movie…
    Oh, and I would love to be with in the movie, I dont know who I could act best as, but many tell me to get more into the acting thing. The problem is just that I live in Sweden… Wich sucks even more!!!

    Comment by Rebecka — March 26, 2011 @ 4:18 pm

  328. That would be totally awesome of it was made into a movie! it’s one of those books that can make a fantastic movie :)

    Comment by Mady — March 28, 2011 @ 8:13 pm

  329. OMFG they have GOT to make these books into a movie!!! i love these books. i mean i love other books but these are by far the BEST EVER!!!! i personally think that if you made them into a tv series that would ruin it. a movie would be MUCH better. altho if it was a tv series it would build up the suspence…?
    i think that it is one of those books where it HAS to be a movie. because when i read the books i can see the movie clearly in my head but i would want to replay that in my head when watching the movie.
    Michael Grant you are my most FAVOURTIE author ever. love the books and make it into a movie.
    Love yall.xxxxxxxx :)

  332. Ok If you livein a small town like me read the first ten chapters then go to gaiphage.com it has site enjoy darkness will be good same as plague first ten chapters amazingcant wait for whole book great books would be a epic epic movie harry potters finished this year same with twilight so yeahit should come out soon i wish i was though but well you never know peace

    Comment by Sam — April 4, 2011 @ 9:19 pm

  333. This sounds awesomene! It’d be really cool if they:
    A: Made it into a TV series, since they tend to be more memorable and popular.
    B: Had open auditions for about 2/3 of the cast. They can’t use all original people, but if we have some new faces, they’ll be able to gain more popularity because the crowds will see the others as new, fresh faces, and in today’s industry, new faces are all the rage.

    Anyway, Plague was amazing. Definitely my favorite book in the series so far- although it’s by far the most disturbing, especially if you have a fear of bugs. My best friend is terrified of them, and looked like she was about to puke when she read it.

    I’d probably play Diana. I’m Spanish and everything. My only issue would be age. Damn being about a year younger than her. Wait! If they DID make it a TV show, then I could play her, because it’d come out later, and I’d have time to age while the series goes on!

    Comment by Elise — April 7, 2011 @ 7:19 pm

  334. If they made it into a movie i would probably go to the theatre to see it everyday. But they wouldn’t be able to use the models on the covers of the books because those are MODELS. Not ACTORS. Some of them could probably do it for the pay (ex. The models for sam, astrid, diana, caine, etc.) but the others might not because the pay wouldn’t be as good. But the actors who play it don’t matter- it’s the fact that they don’t screw it up and try to make all of them into one movie; that would suck (Unless it were like 20 hours long- then it’d be heaven). I really hope they :
    1. Make a seperate 2 and a half hour long movie for each book.
    2. Make MORE books in the series (Plague was great)
    3. I kinda hope they can use the perople who model for the book covers because the way Michael Grant describes the characters in the book series looks so much like them.

  335. as for a television show for gone- i think it would suck. i really do. I don’t want to wait a week to see another episode of it or whatever- i wnat to buy the movie and watch it 24/7.

    Comment by Katie — April 9, 2011 @ 3:44 pm

  336. i just want em to hurry up and make the bloody thing :)

    Comment by holly :) — April 10, 2011 @ 12:33 am

  337. i do not want Gone or any of them made into a movie. they ruined the harry potter books by turnign them into a movie and i don’t want it to happen to my favorite books. sorry other fans but you’ll regret wanting a Gone movie.

    Comment by a real fan — April 10, 2011 @ 5:03 pm

  338. use the people on the cover for the movie and dont leave a single thing out. not one single thing… then i would be happy, no i’m not picky i am just trying to save my favorite series from going down the toilet. oh yes, i am a real fan.

    Comment by a real fan — April 10, 2011 @ 5:06 pm

  339. [...] GONE series will appreciate it the most. There is also an answer to the Gone TV/Movie situation, which hasn’t really changed from last time, but is there for those who are [...]

  340. sorry everyone but i think making ‘GONE’ into a movie would seriously ruin it, these books are mind blowing and i am so terrified that a movie would send all Michael Grants fabulous work packing, no and i repeat NO director or producer could ever capture the magic that is ‘GONE’.
    if it is made, please have no disney actors! so tacky and none of them could make gine as amazing as it deserves.

    Comment by Jen — April 14, 2011 @ 1:13 am

  341. i like your comment jen. disney actors should stay in disney things. we need nobodys that are actually amazing. like i sid in my last comment, either its perfect, or you dont even make the movie. i would suggest not even making the movie.

    Comment by a real fan — April 16, 2011 @ 9:14 pm

  342. i am done with plague (and have been for awhile). is the next one called fear? thats what everyone seems to be saying and i hope they are right!

  343. oh btw! if anyone hears about a book signing or such, i’m there! and just ot touch basis on my fact, no movie please. lets use our imagination and enjoy the BOOK! especailly no disney i mean wtf?!

    Comment by a real fan — April 16, 2011 @ 9:40 pm

  344. if any of you saw joshuas comment, what is up with taht. he said he doesnt care if it is a movie or a show. he just wants to WATCH THE BOOK. waht is the point in taht? and would you crazies stop talking about sterling night and taylor lautner? new people no weirdos in this movie. and stand by what i say, just no movie at all! (you guys are probably annoyed of me saying that.) give me a shout out if you want! i am an expert at gone!

    Comment by a real fan — April 16, 2011 @ 9:43 pm

  345. i am going to sound liek a really crazy fan, but it would be pretty cool if i could play diana. or lana… or dekka if she didnt have to be black. i would prefer diana. and for the record, i look alot like her. biggest difference is color of eyes. other than that, we look alot alike.

    Comment by a real fan — April 16, 2011 @ 9:50 pm

  346. if anyone can answer me, on the cover of plague, that is drake and astrid right? and if it is, than which hand is drakes whip hand? if you compare the cover of lies to plague, you can see that drake is shown form both angles and you dont see the whip… or do you? please answer!

  348. Jen you are totally right. Disney actors pretty much can ruin any other movie/show that they are in. But I would really like somebody to make a Gone movie. But I think they should hire one of the best directors like Peter Jackson since his Lord of the Rings trilogy had 11 academy awards and was pretty much exactly like the books. He really puts a lot of work into his movies and they turn out amazing. He would make the Gone movies thrilling!!!:)

  349. yo! look at my last comment and please answer my question!

    Comment by a real fan — April 20, 2011 @ 2:23 pm

  350. Hi guys! Yeah, I think it would be awesome to cast fresh faces for this series.(Disney actors/actresses make me want to claw my eyes out…) My agent (I’m an actress) has been keeping close tabs on this in case it develops into something big, but what we need to do is somehow find out how we can get the production companies to hold OPEN casting calls. This means that anyone can audition. I think that auditions should be held both in the USA and Canada. We need to try and get involved! :)

    Comment by Totally Diana — April 20, 2011 @ 10:20 pm

  351. Thats Sam and Astrid on the cover. On the back I think it’s Quinn and Mary, but I’m not sure. It could be Zil though…..but I can’t wait to read Plague!!!! Getting it tomorrow:D

    Comment by Madi — April 22, 2011 @ 12:30 am

  352. First of all this book can not be made into a t.v. Show. That will ruin the book series and it would end up on fucking cartoon network.
    Second. The people in the book are all 14 (except for Sam, Caine, etc). We cannot have 20 year olds playing 14 year olds. Really, c’mon. and especially not already famous people.. They would for sure ruin it. I’m sorry, but I’m a real fan and I don’t want this series ruined by 12 year olds wanting Nathan Kress and Debby Ryan playing roles. Nobody would want to see it except pre-teens. A movie would be fine with under- rated actors and actresses.

    I’m just so angered at some of the absurd suggestions on this page I want to cry.

    RAGE.

    Comment by Emily — April 22, 2011 @ 11:12 pm

  353. I think the GONE movie will only be truly successful if they get totally unknown actors!!! to make it work they’ll have to get teenagers who have read the books,love them,and understand them!! if the actors look like the characters…………..well thats even better!! hollywood starlits are just not gonna pull this off to everyones satisfaction!! thats the mistake been made in the past!

    Comment by heather — April 23, 2011 @ 11:46 am

  358. im still reading plague and i really love it. mainly because my fave character Dekka is still strong in this book. And you also see the strong relationship between her and sam. pretty sweet! :) but emily i agree with you. If there were open casting calls i would love to play Dekka. its only my dream. lol but this would be the greatest thing made since sliced bread. ESPECIALLY if they casted new faces. held it in major cities in states. it would just be point blank awesome!!!!!!! But i hope that there is a director/production company that will combined new-teen faces and teen actors already in the business and be willing to do open casting calls. a girls can only hope.

    P.S.-I think my friend would make a great lana shes cut he hair really short but i dont think that they ever say anything about lana having long hair. Lana is just a tough as chickede! and my friend would play her well

Dont make it a tv show, i guarantee you’ll lose too many audience members. Make this a movie and your gonna make a lot of money. people are gonna love it. thanks and keep us updated!!

    Comment by Kalli — April 24, 2011 @ 8:51 pm

  361. Even if Gone is made into a film, most of the auditions would be held in America and a lot of people(like me)would miss out cuz we live elsewhere(i live in England).
    Micheal Grant, if you are turning the book into a film, please audition in England!!!!

  365. just… don’t make a movie. i am done talking to you all about a movie. it would suck. jsut keep it in your imaginations and the books will not be ruined. we all came together to the conclusion that the books rock, now we would all jsut fight once the movie came out… so no movie or tv show please and thank you.

  369. Oh yeah forgot to mention, auditions in UK and US; they always miss us UK out. I think I should be Ashley and I think I’d have a pretty gone chance coz I’ve done TV acting and that and all… I’d want to be Ashley, of course, coz I’m that personality in real life plus I look like her. So, yeah, I’m all for it. They should get kids who’ve read the book also to act out sone smaller parts too to show loyalty. I think it’d be great. :)

  372. I’m not sure how old Taylor is in Gone, but she seems like a teenager. I’m 13 and Asian, and fit in her character. Meh, I’m in Australia, who would give a damn about me? I’m really seriously underweight (not trying to show off. I’m not anorexic, but I’m as thin as a matchstick. That would fit the starved role of Taylor. She can act really innocent sometimes, but then again so can I.) I would really love to be part of a movie, even with just one line. But meh, there are those who’re destined for fame, and then there’s those who aren’t.

  376. Please Mr. Grant!. the gone series turned into a movie would be the greatest movie next to harry potter! you are a fantastic author. Trust me, the movie would make tons of money!!! a tv show would be good!

    Comment by Danielle — May 5, 2011 @ 5:08 pm

  378. Sure, a TV series would be cool. But it would have to be on quite late so you could get some realism into it. Not just a bit of blood, The Walking Dead kinda stuff, y’know? Like realistic weapons and gore. It would suck to see this turn into the kind of rubbish that’s on TV right now, and I can easily see it turning into something all about the romance and relationships if it goes wrong. Sure for one or two eps, but not all the time. And get some better effects than in your adverts, sorry, but they are SO cheesy!

  381. yoou dont want people we already know as good actors to play the main parts as most of them are probably over 14 and there are short time gaps in the storys so the characters dont really age much over the time so its got to be believable…

    Comment by gftrhytgh — May 8, 2011 @ 11:13 am

  382. If There is a gone movie… people will be disapointed if the movie is not close to the book! The movie must be acuarate and can not leave any part of the book that will give clue to the following books take place. Also many of the charecters have to look like what the book describes them as if not… the audience looses interest!!!!!!

    Comment by Ethan — May 8, 2011 @ 9:07 pm

  390. A GONE movie would be really awesome, but I agree that it would be hard to find big name actors because of the age of the characters. This movie could also seriously SUCK! GONE is a long book and a lot of things happen from start to finish; and everything that happens is important.So if the writer who adapts it into a script leaves something or someone out and isn’t true to the original story then the movie will bomb.

    Comment by Mason — May 17, 2011 @ 4:43 pm

  399. Gone is an amzing book you TV producers should be out of your mind crazy wanting to be the ones to produce Gone. The same thing goes for those Movie producers. Hopefully it will be a movie:)

  401. If GONE is made into a movie, I swear i’ll be the first 1 online to see it. The GONE series is the best series i’ve ever read in my whole life! They really should make a movie. GONE is a movie would be the best thing sine they made Percy Jackson a movie.

  405. of course it would be the best thing since percy jackson, cause percy jackson sucked. i loved the books but the movie was a flop

    Comment by a real fan — June 1, 2011 @ 12:16 pm

  406. ok, to answer my own question, drakes whip hand is his right hand which would suck if he was right handed.

    Comment by a real fan — June 1, 2011 @ 12:16 pm

  407. one last thing. dont make a movie or show. YOU PEOPLE ARE FREAKS! IF THEY MAKE IT INTO ONE OF THOSE THEN IT WILL JUS TMAKE OYU SAD CAUSE THEY LEFT SOMETHING OR SOMEONE OUT. LEAVE IT TO YOUR IMAGINATIONS PEOPLE!PLEASE!

    Comment by a real fan — June 1, 2011 @ 12:18 pm

  408. oh btw. the reason it isnt a movie yet is because the movie guys want to up the ages of the characters but michael grant is fighting for us saying that would ruin the movie. the movie guys dont want to have all kids for their actors cause they think it would suck. so there!

    Comment by a real fan — June 1, 2011 @ 12:20 pm

  409. make this into a movie!!!
    its a great book and would be a great movie!

    Comment by Melissa — June 5, 2011 @ 8:00 pm

  410. I hope it becomes a movie so that all of those Gone-haters can see how awesome it all really was.:)))))))

    Comment by Andrea Castillo — June 7, 2011 @ 9:44 am

  411. Seriously, if these books were made into mmovies I think everyone will agree that they must be at least age rating 15 above because that is the entire thrill of the books. The danger and chaos. If hollywood knock down to a 12A im sueing them! I can’t imagine this film being bad. Why can they do it for Harry Potter and not other books?! It makes me soooo angry! Choose a good director, actors, and script, DON’T CHANGE THE STORYLINE OR DO ANYTHING STUPID STICK TO THE BOOK!!! And this will be the biggest movie! Alongside Lord of the Rings. :-) (No pressure ;-) )

    Comment by Alex Hill — June 8, 2011 @ 2:48 pm

  412. we all really need to stop saying we want a movie. anyone have anything interesting to say about the book? everyone gets the fact that a movie would be cool. ok, now can we talk about waht we like/dislike about the book instead of repeating ourselves over and over again?

    Comment by a real fan — June 8, 2011 @ 7:18 pm

  413. OMG I love the gone series! if u turn it into a movie i must be told and if there are siix books so does tht mea that there will be six movies or only 3 like putting gone and hunger 2gethr and lies and plague 2gethr and darkness and light 2gethr cuz eithr way im paying for all of the movies!

    Comment by Blake Young — June 10, 2011 @ 4:14 pm

  414. To “a real fan”- I agree. People, we should start talking about something other than the fact that it would be a great movie. It’s starting to get on my nerves. How about we talk about our favorite character and why. Mine is Astrid because she is smart, pretty, and not afraid to stand up for herself or anyone else:)

    Comment by Madi — June 11, 2011 @ 6:02 pm

  415. I think that the GONE series should be made into a movie, and that with the right actors and directors and effects/settings, it will be amazing. I personaly think that one of the directors from the Harry Potter series should do this; those movies are excelent, great effects(which will be needed) and they hardly cut out anything, unless it was really uneccessary, or inimportant. If things work out right, the movie would make loads of money and make the books even more popular. Since the movie wouldn’t be coming out untill after the Harry Potter series is over, I think that these movies will be the next Harry Potter. I really hope this gets made into a movie, and try to get someone who directed one of the HP movies to direct the series, for it to be as great as the books.

    Comment by Nicole Evans — June 11, 2011 @ 8:08 pm

  416. I really really hope that you would make this into a movie. I just started reading this series and its one of the best books I’ve read since the Maximum Ride series. Please Please PLEASE do the best you can to make this into a movie cause I garuntee you will make millions of dollars :)

    Comment by samlover — June 13, 2011 @ 10:25 pm

  417. PLEASE KEEP IT BE THE BOOK! I don’t want to see anouther repeat of percy jackson!

    Comment by Devin Durham — June 16, 2011 @ 1:02 pm

  418. please keep the actors kids to cuz thats part of the whole thing. Imagining that kids are going through all these thing adds to the overal effect of the book. If they where adults it wouldn’t be as moving and distubing in the parts that are.

    Comment by Devin Durham — June 16, 2011 @ 1:06 pm

  419. Please make it a movie… I’m not even halfway through the book and I can’t put it down and I want it to become a movie :/ I don’t care who plays the parts I would tell everyone to watch it (even randoms)… I love this book ::: DDD

    Comment by Elly — June 17, 2011 @ 9:42 pm

  420. Just read some of the comments here and imagine how many viewers u would get :) obviously I’m a huge fan and I just bought all the books yesterday and almost halfway through the first one:/ which is s bummer but I can and will read it more than once, well I think you should make it a movie and I’m sure n0 one would care who lays the part because…u get my drift :D

  423. does anyone ever wonder what it would be like in the FAYZ?

    Comment by molly — June 26, 2011 @ 3:51 pm

  424. Does Michael Grant read theses? i really hope so because i really wish that there was a Gone movie!!! :(

    Comment by molly — June 26, 2011 @ 3:52 pm

  425. I hate to say it, but… Gone shouldn’t be a movie.
    It should be a TV series.
    Haven’t any of you seen ‘The Walking Dead’? Could you imagine getting AMC to make the Gone series into a show??? The graphics, at least, would be effing fantastic for a TV show. I know it would be less dramatic (temporarily) than a movie, but I read the entire book series like a TV series… it works better, it flows better, ESPECIALLY since there are so many personal perspectives. Lots of POVs.
    Seriously, you would get 6 movies out of the Gone series (that’s if they even catch on…). A general TV show runs for 21-24 shows. 6 seasons = 126-166 shows. TV shows are cheaper than movies, and they keep RERUNNING on TV!!! Look at BtVS!!! 14 years later, and there are STILL episodes being rerun on TV.
    Conjoin AMC and J.J. Abrams for the general overview of the entire series (there’s already a fully written plot, so it won’t be a dive-bomb like Lost and Fringe) and get either Michael Giacchino or Chris Tilton to write the score/soundtrack. I love this series very, very, very much and I’m probably one of the oldest people commenting in this forum. It’s exciting to come back to teen fiction (after all my years reading adult fiction… umm, not the dirty stuff :P ) and find THIS!!! Jeez. I’m glad I caught it at the right time, though.

    Comment by Kimdra — June 27, 2011 @ 3:26 am

  426. I actually kind of agree with Kimbra. At first I thought a movie would be great but after reading that post I realize a tv show would be great too. My only problem is that I would never know what channel it would come on.

    Comment by Madi — June 29, 2011 @ 10:31 pm

  427. i think they are making either a movie or tv series… i am so mad. they will ruin it! cant you people be satisfied with using your imaginations! the wise words of spongebob, “as long as we have our imaginations…”

    Comment by a real fan — July 7, 2011 @ 12:15 pm

  428. i also agree with kimdra, if your from england (or even america im not sure) you will probably hhave heard of misfits. this has a superpower theme in it too, but its also qquite gritty like the gone series (it is much more gritty than gone though) you should check it out

    Comment by elli — July 11, 2011 @ 11:56 am

  429. I really think Gone should be turned into a movie! It would be a very unique kind of movie because of all of the personal perspectives. I think it would be interesting to see how they put all the different perspectives into it! If you don’t end up liking the movie, you don’t have to watch it again but who knows?? It may end up to be better than we ever thought it could be! :)

    Comment by Whit — July 12, 2011 @ 10:38 am

  430. UH, finally! but a TV show? No. That would pretty much ruin it. It would turnm into a soap opera thing and it just wouldnt be good. I really hope this happens and being in this movie would be so much fun for the actors. :)

    Comment by jenn — July 14, 2011 @ 5:52 pm

  431. I just Love these books, and it would be like a dream coming throug if this amazing book became a movie!
    Not a TV show, please! a movie ! it will be the next ”harry potter”!! I’m begging !!

    Comment by helene bjørnstad — July 16, 2011 @ 5:34 am

  432. I just finished Plague not even two hours ago now and I have been thinking ever since your first book in the Gone series that it should be made into a movie also. The books are more than fantastic but if you were to make it into a movie alot of people will see just how great of a story it is!! And there is no doubt in my mind that it would come seriously close to becoming just as great or possibly even greater than Harry Potter.
    Also, please do not make the mistake of making it into a T.V. show; the way you have it written wouldn’t make sence if it were. If it were made into a movie it is more likely to stay closer to the book than a T.V. show would.
    But ultimetly it is your choice *sigh* I just really hope that you do choose to make it into a movie.

    Comment by Erica — July 16, 2011 @ 11:23 pm

  433. I think that Jodelle Ferland should play Narrezza in lies. She looks SO much like what I imagined her as! DO NOT turn it into a TV series. MAKE IT INTO A MOVIE!!!! Maybe even six, 1 for each book!!! And make the descriptions in the book match the actors. PLEASE. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!! I <3 GONE!!!!

    Comment by Chazza — July 18, 2011 @ 1:21 am

  434. please please PLEASE!!! make a movie or tv show! preferably a tv show! gone is a great book and i think that it would be awesome as a tv show, you know, because the books are so long, and i want to see Everything played out that happened in the books, which wont happen if its a movie. this website has enough comments, so it has to happen soon! Gone played out is something everyone wants to see.

    Comment by Khala — July 18, 2011 @ 1:32 am

  435. I love the gone series, as does every one else in my whole school. It took forever for me to get the book because of how popular it was. If that were to become a movie, it would be a dream come true!!!!!!! Just make sure the effects aren’t bad ;) I really don’t like bad effects.

    Comment by Kat — July 20, 2011 @ 4:55 pm

  436. I Love These Books And I Just Figured Out That Fear will Be Released On April 3rd 2012 and its July 2011 Screams!! These books NEED To be made into a movie but Maybe a TV Series… I Would Buy Both… I Have All the books… HURRY!!!!!! I Would Be So Jelous Unless I Got In The Movie! Awesome!

    Comment by Lol — July 30, 2011 @ 3:08 pm

  437. I really think you should do open auditions with audition tapes for all over America. I would love to be in gone so could someone please email me or post the address to email videos 2??? I would love to play Lana and If this website would give me a hand that would be great!!:):):)

    Comment by Jennifer — August 2, 2011 @ 9:29 pm

  438. hey for the roles of the characters i think they should do auditions for new people to step in. Insted of having well known faces become the character… you need someone who will be that face forever and it should be someone who when we read the book we see in our imagination as we read it so i think they should hold auditions :)

    give someone like us a chance :]

    Phoebe-jane :)

    Comment by phoebe-jane — August 3, 2011 @ 3:02 pm

  439. ok what pisses me off the most is that there really are no black actresses to play Dekka if this were made into a movie. Its really sad. I aslo can get a clear picture of what dekka would look like. I know, maybe muscular, tall slender but also in lies nerezza says shes fat…so anybody have an answer for me? lol I would love to play her. I think open casting calls, online and in some states would be good.

    Comment by carly wyche — August 4, 2011 @ 8:19 am

  440. omg this movie’s gonna be awesome!! And dont forget australia-Tons of talented actors/actresses here too,loads of which who are actually American. Pleeeeaaaasssseeee hold open auditions for Diana in Sydney!!! I look exactly like her-Black long curlyish wavy hair, Dark eyes, darkish olive skin that can look REALLY tan or super pale (they never explain what type of skincolour she has)And im pretty positive that there’s some perfect Lanas, Astrids,Briannas, Marys, Taylors, and Dekkas etc out there u just gotta look! good luck with the movie and keep it true to the book-No one wants a repeat of the golden compass or percy jackson!! XD

    Comment by Lulu — August 7, 2011 @ 4:18 am

  441. I’ve not even finished ‘Hunger’ yet – I only just discovered the books – but I’m already excited about a movie. Please don’t make it a fail like Percy Jackson and The Golden Compass, though. Open casting calls would be much appreciated, in the UK as well. Nobody’s mentioned that yet ^.^ Diana is my favourite character. I’m hooked on her relationship with Caine.

    So yeah. Open casting calls in the UK, or an opportunity to send in tapes online. :)

    Comment by Liv — August 10, 2011 @ 6:22 am

  442. I agree with everyone else!! I think they should hold auditions for new people :) *Cough..Lima, OH..Cough* :) I would really7 really love to be in a Gone movie…just sayin! haha :)

  443. i need gone to become a movie its my only reson for existance XD but if they stuff it up with crapy actors and/or if thay frig up the fight scene at the end i will personaly see to burning every copy i can find.

  445. I would love to see these books become movies! but im afraid there gonna mess it up with the little things! yes the characters are young but some of them, like drake, should look older to give more of that sadistic look :) i also agree with a lot of the other comments. keep it to the book! keep it vulgar and sick! thats what makes these books unreal! :P 1 other little thing would be the way Brianna runs! if she runs like the vampires in Twilight or in The Vampires Assistant, the movie will fail :P
    Michael Grant, you are a genius!

    Comment by nathaniel — August 16, 2011 @ 7:37 am

  446. I haven’t read gone, but have read hunger and get the overall idea of gone (didn’t think it was a series) but I’d love it to be a film!!!!! It would beat any other, it’s awesome!!!! Read it in a day! Couldn’t put it down!

  450. This is the most awesome series ever! And Gone has gotta be the best book I’ve read in ages! It’s totally good enough to be made into a movie, but the movie’ll probably turn out shit like all other movies based off of books:/

But I heard that they are already making a movie in holland or something and they probably already have an actress for Lana or astrid I think they still need a Sam drake Diana Orc Mary and dahra and other people. I actually kinda look like Lana long black hair and pale someone please!!!!! all the perfect actors who love the book are out there they just need to know where to start

    Comment by Leanne — September 3, 2011 @ 4:37 pm

  453. I think I’d play a fairly decent Computer Jack; I’m 11, wear glasses, have short blonde hair, blue eyes, slightly tanned skin, and I wouldn’t say my body is skinny and hunched, but I’d say a few dashes of makeup would make me cut for the camera. Not bragging, but I think I’m a fairly positive actor. There’s barely a chance I’ll make an actor, though; my parents hate Gone, I live in New Zealand, and I’ve never gone “public”. It’d be interesting to see Caine’s actor. For me, the most critical of actors are Diana and Litle Pete. Diana needs to be born sarcastic. You need to see it in her eyes, the witch, the deciever, the roll-eyes, joke making, brown-haired girl. And Little Pete? You don’t need to be too clever to realize the flaws of Little Pete. First of all, how are you going to get a little kid to act as an autistic four/five-year-old? And that too-pretty, girlish, Game Boy addicted look? It’s going to be hard. The Darkness, with some makeup and animation, should make the cut.

  454. Defintly make a movie! Have it in the different books of course but i have to say no to the show. It would be slaughtered and the money would be wasted so PLEASE do not do the show. But you would proably make millions with themovie! People would be so excited to finally have a new sort of harry potter, though i have to say they would be equals

  455. My favorite chsaracter would have to be little pete. I mean, who else could save almost eberybody by creating a barrier t ne known as the FAYZ? Thugh, as everybody would pick sam and astrid! I have to say that caine and diana are adorable! Caine loves her and I am pretty sure she at the very least cares about him. They better get together!

  459. If there IS a Gone movie… I should play Astrid :) . I actually look a lot like her: Blonde, blue eyes, also have an autistic brother and I’m really smart. But I don’t know if I know more of pi than her. 3.14159265358979323846 that’s really all I know from memory. Yeah, and I’m her age haha :)

    Comment by Brielle — September 10, 2011 @ 1:57 pm

  460. Sorry I had to submit another comment after I just submitted one but I think the actors should NOT be the people on the cover because how do we know that their not just models and that their actual actresses and actors? I mean, they might. I’ve modeled a bit and do dabble in acting. I’m in eighth grade and will be in high school next year and TOTALLY taking acting and theater classes. That’s what my career test said I should be. But I think I would be a great Astrid because I DO have an autistic brother and I would ‘know’ I guess. Oh! Here he is now. But yeah, I’m intellegent (Smart blonde! Haha, oxymoron) and I am a great actress. In case you were wondering, I HAVE READ THE BOOKS AND UNDERSTAND THEM. Please don’t do old actresses that are adults, that’s just a bit dumb. But I think they should make people do casting calls in Arizona, California, New York, Montana and Texas. I live in Arizona but I just thought these would be goof places :) . No offense to people who live in Australia and England, I think there should be casting calls there too :)

    Comment by Kailea — September 26, 2011 @ 7:05 am

  466. This series is amazing. I absolutely love it!
    But I DISAGREE all the way for it to become a movie. Books are something you read and can picture in your head, you can create the senery and the characters looks and voice, but if a movie comes out then what’s the pont of reading the book in the first place? Plus, just saying “PLEEAASEE make Gone a movie!” doesn’t mean it’s gonna happen. A movie takes heaps of time and money. Why use up that time making a movie while one can write the NEXT book (Fear or Darkness).

    Nonetheless, your books are great Michael, its multicultured and is diffinitly my kind of book.

    Comment by Brenton M — November 11, 2011 @ 4:31 am

  479. Michael Grant is a wonderful, talented author who has potentially captivated the imaginations of many people by writing the Gone series.
    This book and series deserves to be made into a movie. When this happens the actors and actresses on the other hand should probably be ” fresh faces” who are around about the right age. Because if Gone becomes a hit then they might make a sequel and so on and if older characters play the part of fourteen year olds in Gone, then won’t they be too old for the part later on?
    I am thirteen going on fourteen in 2012 and I would absolutely love playing the part of Diana Ladris because in reality I can relate to her. For example, I have long dark brown hair and dark brown eyes like Diana. My favourite saying is “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder!”
    I also tend to be sarcastic a lot. I know I would have the potential to portray her character!!!
    Also not to mention I have read the Gone series books that have so far been published and I thoroughly enjoyed them!!!!
    I’d also like to say congratulations to Mr.Michael Grant on the success of publishing such thriving novels.

  480. I’m not the kind of guy that throws up easily. Plague was a breeze. But I’ve got to admit, it did send my heart to my throat a couple of times. Sam: playing the usual hero with problems of his own. Astrid: on the brink of madness through religious zeal. Edilio: has a few moments of panic and pain. Caine: more hungry for power than ever. Diana: madly in love with Caine but reluctant to take the relationship too far. Drake: just plain creepy. All of this is centred around the so-called SDC, the supernatural death cough, a devastating flu that makes victim chuck their guts up – literally. But parasites are eating their way out of other victims’ bodies – and growing by the minute.

  481. Let me share my opinion on Drake.
    My head says Michael Grant ruined the book with Drake and Brittney melded together invinciblely, etc. But my instinct says that it makes causes more suspense and horror in the story. Then again, it makes me wonder: How will Drake ever be killed? I mean, he has to die in the end, right? Maybe he’s on a curse or something. Or maybe Little Pete kills him through rage. Speaking of Little Pete, I wonder how he’s going to use his power now that he can control it. Very interesting.

  482. ok well i dont read very often i probly should have not read some of these comments because im only on lies at the moment but yes i really love these books and im looking forward to the movies because in my mind there will be because the books are to good not to do so. and i am also looking forward to reading plague and the new one coming out in april

  484. @ Emily. Ya I can’t wait to read the one coming out in a few months time. I think it’s called Fear . And after Fear is Light.

    Comment by Ash — December 7, 2011 @ 12:08 am

  485. I am a big fan of your work and love the Gone series. I am 14 and think I would fit a couple characters within this series and would like a chance to be in the movie.
    I understand that you must have loads of people wanting to be in the movie, but to have a chance would mean alot.

    Thankyou

  486. It will be awesome if they made a movie,but I agree with no disney or well known actors!!

    Comment by carla — December 11, 2011 @ 8:33 am

  487. I just wanted to say that I love the Gone Series I am currently reading Plague. Some parts I have found really gross! But it was written so well! These books are awesome! I think that it should be a movie, but I don’t really care for the idea of it being a t.v show. I also agree that they should try to find fresh faces instead of dinsney and nickalodian characters. I would love to play Astrid, she’s like one of my favorite characters. Her, Edilio, Sam, and Brianna.

    Comment by Chrissa — December 11, 2011 @ 3:24 pm

  488. omg i luv these books:)
    i HOPE they make a movie, but at the same time i hope they dont becuz sometimes movies RUIN books like crazy and more ppl watch movies and id hate it if they watched the ruined movie nd thought that it was the book. :(
    for example i <3 the HUNGER GAMES but i hope they dont ruin the movie like the lightning thief…ugh they messed that one up:(
    BUT i cant wait 4 the next to come out-i heard someone loses thier virginity prob astrid or brianna or maybe even dekka LOL
    if anyones looking 4 another good series reas THE MZE RUNNER series:)

    Comment by Lily — December 11, 2011 @ 9:19 pm

  489. Having Disney or well known characters would really ruin it. They should give everyday people like us a chance ……..

    Comment by Ash — December 12, 2011 @ 1:13 am

  490. Ha! I read the maze runner and the hunger games :) Great books! I love the gone series and I can’t wait for the next books! I hope that they make it a movie, but there are some people who would want to read them but they see the size of the book and freak out so if they see there’s going to be a moive they may not read it. Still I hope there’s a movie.

    Comment by Chrissa — December 13, 2011 @ 8:39 am

  491. MOVIE! MOVIE! MOVIE!!! Plz…… with open auditions for people from around the world, like Sydney, Australia and New Zealand and etc.

    Comment by Ash — December 15, 2011 @ 2:49 am

  492. I was just reading some of the previous comments and there was this other person also named Ash who commented approximately 19/20 months ago! I’d just like to say that was not me! Because I actually think the Gone Series movies, would be really awsome and cool, unlike the other Ash.

    Comment by Ash — December 16, 2011 @ 9:04 pm

  493. I think this would be AMAZING as a movie, and I know the PERFECT actors for it. People on userbasedcasting have posted monologues for this book, you guys should check it out. I hope michael grant see’s it because it would mean ALOT if I was able to play dekka. Can you guys pleasee check out my page “ConsuelaT” on userbasedcasting.com I swear I won’t dissapoint you! :)

    Comment by Consuela — December 23, 2011 @ 12:40 am

  494. okay. this book has been out for years. and how am i just now reading it? it is full of such amazing drama and action that i could have read without sleeping for days just trying to finish it. if there is a movie. it should be a best seller. because honestly, none of these movies would compare to this.

    Comment by Chacne — December 24, 2011 @ 3:46 am

  495. Gone, not only brilliant, thrashing, and very suspenseful, but is probably the most addicting series I have EVER read. I find myself reading it all day long, when I wake up, when I go to bed, even when I take a piss or eat! (Yeah, it’s gone that far buddies) I can already imagine Gone being a successful movie. Why the heck would you make it a show? Yeah, people have there little ideas, this and that, but buddy, really? Movies make more money. Gone is already a hit series, imagine the movies. It’s not even that, the movie has flaws too. Where are you going to find an autistic kid? You gotta think about this. It’s not even on other people’s opinions. You need to plan this. And for that matter, you need a good Diana. I’d love playing her. Me and her are very connected, I even look like the Diana on the cover. I am a very good actress too, but I wish you luck, I guess… if you do make a movie. Us fans will be waiting. I’m a big dystopian fan. Don’t, seriously, don’t dissapoint us Michael Grant. Make the best choice, we’re counting on you.

    Comment by Shaheena — December 27, 2011 @ 3:40 pm

  496. I absoloutly LOVE this book, i hope they hurry up and make this movie, and i cant believe i only discovered the series recently…

  497. I absolutley love the series! If there was to be a movie or even a Television series, I would would cry with happiness! :,) <3

    Comment by Emma — December 30, 2011 @ 9:14 pm

  498. Shaheena,
    Please dont take offense, but they wouldnt have to find an actual autistic kid just an ACTOR. But I agree, I would LOVE to play Astrid! And even have a friend who not only looks exactly like the Astrid on the front of the book, but has the same exact personality! She even advanced up a grade, and is still top of her class.

    Comment by Emma — December 30, 2011 @ 9:21 pm

  499. i am the Gaiaphage and this should definetly be a movie,with the people on the covers as the actors. of course i dont make a convincing gaiaphage if i can bareely spell

    Comment by gaiaphage — December 31, 2011 @ 8:05 pm

  500. I would absolutely LOVE to play the part of Diana Ladris because I can relate to her: I have long dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. I’m pretty much a sarcastic person and I love acting!!!

    Comment by Ash — January 1, 2012 @ 2:39 am

  501. By the way people, does anyone know who the model for astrid is on the front cover?

    Comment by Riley — January 1, 2012 @ 8:00 am

  502. I would LOVE a movie!

    Comment by Rutger — January 1, 2012 @ 4:26 pm

  503. @ Riley nope I tried finding out who the models were on the covers but they pretty much remain anonymous!

    Comment by Ash — January 1, 2012 @ 9:11 pm

  504. Does anyone have any idea or word whether or not ‘Gone’ will be a movie???? Michael Grant’s video message was posted in 2009 its 3 years later and theres still no sign of a movie while the hunger games has one coming out!!!! Come on!!!! this could be the next great saga under harry potter and star wars! get the movie!!!!!!!

    Comment by Nabeel Mansuri — January 4, 2012 @ 8:28 pm

  505. since a lot of you guys are wondering about the cast… go on youtube and check the cast choices some guy posted… they’re very realistic! youtube- gone michael grant cast… check it out!

    Comment by Nabeel Mansuri — January 4, 2012 @ 8:31 pm

  506. @ Nabeel Mansuri. Yeah the cast does seem realistic and it’s a great idea! But (please don’t be offended) I think we should have ” fresh faces”. There a lot of everyday people who sure would love to play parts of certain characters like Sam Astrid Dekka Brianna and etc.
    But just to say the cast some guy posted did seem ok.

    Comment by Ash — January 5, 2012 @ 8:23 pm

  507. @ash, oh well but thanks for looking anyway

    Comment by Riley — January 6, 2012 @ 6:10 am

  508. @ Riley no probs :)

    Comment by Ash — January 7, 2012 @ 7:18 pm

  509. if gone is made into a movie the should have the song ’set the world on fire’ by black veil brides.
    ps. im not really andy sixx i lied XD

    Comment by ANDY SIXX — January 9, 2012 @ 6:26 am

  510. another song that should be in the movie anarchy in the uk by the sex pistols

    Comment by ANDY SIXX — January 9, 2012 @ 6:31 am

  511. ok i know i have commented on this way to many times but this is the only blog i ever follow! :D but seeing i’ve been on hear way to many times i agree with the people that say fresh face and absolutely no disney channel/Nick/any childish channel stars. But there are some stars that i would be perfect for some of these part, like Brianna. i think Chloe Mortez should play her. and maybe logan lerman for Caine, not Sam. Sam i would have to say, if this actor was younger, Alex pettyfer! lol but hes older now. but diana i can just see Demi lavato ding her. i know no disney character but she seems like she would kick ass in that part that all i got thou…all the other parts i cant think of even Dekka! she would be hard to cast. I would love to play her thou.

    Comment by carly wyche — January 9, 2012 @ 6:12 pm

  512. yea i think demi lavato wouldn’t be bad except i think it needs to be someone who looks meaner than demi

    Comment by Chrissa — January 15, 2012 @ 10:54 pm

  513. Wouldnt Demi be a bit too old for the part ? Isnt she turning 20 years of age this year ?

    Comment by Ash — January 17, 2012 @ 7:44 pm

  514. I agree ash she’s too old, and she doesn’t look mean enough for Diana

    Comment by Riley — January 20, 2012 @ 8:04 pm

  515. ppleeeaaase we want a movie of this amazing serie!

    Comment by merel — January 26, 2012 @ 9:37 am

    Comment by liv :) — January 26, 2012 @ 6:35 pm

  517. i ment lucy hale sorry lol not ashley benson

    Comment by liv :) — January 26, 2012 @ 6:42 pm

  518. If Gone does ever become a movie, I think Samantha Boscarino should play Dianna. For some reason after reading the whole series, whenever I thought of Dianna she popped into my head! :)

    Comment by Lydia — January 28, 2012 @ 8:40 pm

  519. @ liv yeah Lucy hale does look a bit “Diana-ish” but she’s about 23 years old! By the time they make movie for “Light”, she’ll be maybe over 30!!! Lol. @ Lydia Samantha boscarino is about 18 this year. Hmmm… I dunno coz she’s from nickolodean and did some Disney acting. But then again this is entirely my opinion. I think people lk “us” Should get a chance. :)

    Comment by Ash — January 31, 2012 @ 1:18 am

  520. Cmon, please make a movie!
    That would be totaly awesome and i had watched it a thousand time!
    It is the best books in the world so just make a movie and I’m happy :P

  525. omg please make a film of gone! pleaseee!
    and if there will be audition do them in great-brittain!
    please! I really wanna play astrid or diana!
    please please please!!!!

    Comment by merel — February 12, 2012 @ 5:49 am

  526. You know what! when Gone does turn in to a movie , they should have auditions world wide.

    Comment by Ash — February 13, 2012 @ 2:18 am

  527. OMG I am so so so so excited about the new movie! I can’t wait for it to come out! I have read all of the books and am also still waiting for Fear to come out! I have all the books and have read them all at least 5 times!! I think that the characters on the books should play the roles of the characters in the movie. Just make sure that you don’t leave anything out because I hate it when people leave something crucial out. But I understand if you can’t put EVERY LITTLE SENTENCE, or some of the scenes because they’re just too hard to put it out on the screen or too innapropriate for people our age to see. I just want them to be the best they can be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Ally — February 19, 2012 @ 3:15 pm

  532. OMG I love GONE it is the best book series I have ever read and I have read GONE 3 times, HUNGER 2 times, LIES 4 times and PLAGUE 1 time. I cant wait for FEAR, and if you make a movie (which I have been dreaming of ever since I read page 1) I wanna be in it… DREAM COME TRUE! :D Its scary how much I look like Diana.

    Comment by GoneLover — February 26, 2012 @ 9:41 am

  533. If u ever do make a movie… HOLD AUDITIONS IN NEW ENGLAND PLEASE

    Comment by GoneLover — February 26, 2012 @ 9:45 am

  534. Sorry to pop the bubble, guys,but it seems like Gone isn’t gonna make it to the big scree.
    (BUT Animorphs probably will)
    It’s because Gone just has waaayyy too much going on in it, and if you’ve read gone, you would understand what I mean…You wouldn’t want them to leave out parts, right?
    Although, Gone has pretty much every trait of a series thriller TV show, and I think THATS where we should lay our hopes!
    What’dya think?

    Comment by Alina — February 26, 2012 @ 9:15 pm

  541. This series is perfect for a movie saga. one that i belive will leave the twilight saga in the dust. though i would advise to wait until the hunger games saga hits a road bump between films.

  542. U can do it !!!

    Comment by Ash — March 14, 2012 @ 12:59 am

  543. I don’t believe that Gone should be made into a movie. The books are excellent, but should be left as books. What’s the point of reading a book if you could wait and see it in theatres. Putting everything in movies is causing our society to start lacking imagination since we don’t have to imagine what characters look like, picture their locations in our minds and so on.

    Comment by mel — March 15, 2012 @ 10:10 am

  544. gone needs to be made a movie with great actors and great “special effects” for the whip hand and the white laser beams and other abnormal creations of the fayz. also it shouldnt be a movie by disney because then it wont be anything like the book just like the percy jackson movie.

    Comment by chafro — March 15, 2012 @ 9:35 pm

  545. a television show would be great for the gone series. every major or somewhat major conflist could take about 30-60 minutes on a television show. to make sure people watch it dont make it animated.

    Comment by chafro — March 15, 2012 @ 9:41 pm

  546. im sorry to dissapoint u guys… but thers not goin to be a Gone movie… :(
    ther is alredy a moovie named Gone…
    and they cant copy it…
    so its not gonna happen… :(
    if u dont beleive me look up the trailer on youtube…

    Comment by Sam — March 16, 2012 @ 12:38 pm

  547. but maybe ther will be a series… :3

    Comment by Sam — March 16, 2012 @ 12:38 pm

  548. A TV series would be amazing, one season for each book. Definately NOT a movie, it would ruin it by missing out everything.
    Peter Jackson would be awesome and please don’t use Steerling Knight (No offence to him, but he doesn’t seem dark enough).
    I can just see the tension when one episode ends on “Little Pete caused the FAYZ”.

    Comment by BJ — March 16, 2012 @ 7:55 pm

  549. @ Sam hahahh is your name really Sam? anyway, yeh there is also a movie called “Gone” about someone getting abducted or something, but that doesn’t mean The Gone Series by Michael Grant cannot be a movie. They can name it something like ” Gone” and in small print ” The Gone Series by Michael Grant “… or whatever. Let’s show some spirit, hope and belief here people!!!!!!! If The Hunger Games could manage it…… SO CAN GONE!!!!!!!!!!! My teacher once wisely advised our class “If you do not give up, you cannot fail”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And that’s true… You can’t fail if you keep trying!! Just believe in yourself!

  554. I think if they do ANYTHING, they better do a movie and they better do a damn good job of it as well. Only problem with this, is I read books Hardcover and throw out the sleeves for them, but I still pictured Sam as having dark hair.

    Comment by Kira — March 31, 2012 @ 7:05 pm

  555. @ Kira I know right? I also picture as Sam having a darker shade of hair. Maybe something like dark blonde to lightish brown.

    Comment by Ash — March 31, 2012 @ 10:27 pm

  556. It would be amazing if they would make the book gone into a movie, i always try to imagine the characters and what they would look like. I hope that if they do make a movie out of it, it will be good and not miss out major characters like in Percy Jackson and the Lightning thief. If they did make a movie, they would also make lots of money as lots of people have read the books. MAKE THE MOVIE

    Comment by Ash — April 5, 2012 @ 10:43 am

  559. Once I started reading gone I couldn’t stop. I adore the style of the book and I’ve read every book in the series so far. I recently finished plague and this wait time is killing me! It is easily one of my favorite books and many of my friends as well. If there were to be a movie I know at least 40 people in Mozambique (where I am) who would go to it in South Africa and I can’t even imagine the success it would have in the United States. Movie Please!

    Comment by Marcus — April 5, 2012 @ 10:47 am

  560. Okay, first thing. If they did make Gone into a movie and stayed true to the book, it’d have to be rated R. Hollywood only allows a certain amount of violence against kids (which everyone in Gone is), which is why the Hunger Games showed so little actual killing. If there’s too many kids being hurt or killed, it would not be able to be PG-13, which means most of you probably couldn’t watch it. Stinks, but that’s how it goes. If they DID make a movie out of it, I’d want them to have it as close as possible, which probably wouldn’t be PG-13. (though they did do a good job with the Hunger Games in that area; it might work)

  561. YES YES YES!!!!!! Make a movie PLEASE!!!!
    Don’t cut out too much of the scenes though and please make the actors actually LOOK fourteen (or younger), they made that mistake with Stormbreaker.
    DON’T make a TV show! Nowadays if the show is really popular they put it on really late and on a special TV channel, so not everybody would be able to see it!!
    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!! Make a movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Rebecca — April 8, 2012 @ 7:28 am

  562. Sorry that I say this, but it is THREE years later since this update. That is kinde late. I really want that Gone becomes a movie as well, but can we maybe get a new update about how it is going with the movie? Because it gives me not a lot of hope when I see the date of this update.

    Comment by Vinz — April 15, 2012 @ 1:57 pm

  563. @ Vinz a more up to date about Gone movie would be on Michael Grants (@ thefayz) twitter page. There is sometimes mention on how things are going with the movie plan.

    Comment by Ash — April 16, 2012 @ 7:38 pm

  564. Vinz,
    please dont be a debby downer! theres a little hope, check fb there are things on there are still possibilities. movies are still coming out in theaters right? Yay! so maybe it will! dont worry…

    Comment by Carly — April 17, 2012 @ 12:41 pm

  565. I totally agree, some one needs to update

    Comment by Ted — April 17, 2012 @ 5:46 pm

  566. I agree with Carly! If you don’t give up, you can not fail!

    Comment by Ash — April 18, 2012 @ 7:48 pm

  567. Gone has to be made into a move when I got the newest book fear, my heart was pumping like crazy. The series will be the next biggest saga it is amazing I liked it better than the Harry potter seires, the twilight series, and the hunger games seires. I can’t wait till light comes out. Also josh hucherson should play a main character.

    Comment by Pazaz — May 2, 2012 @ 1:23 am

  568. I agree

    Comment by Shaman — May 2, 2012 @ 1:23 am

  569. If they make it into a movie it has to go by the book and not change it at all!!!! Otherwise it will SUCK
    And Josh hutches on has to star in it, he did a good job at Steve leopard and peeta.

    Comment by Shazam — May 2, 2012 @ 1:28 am

  570. I don’t know I think we should get newbies !!!! You know lk work wide auditions or something

    Comment by Ash — May 3, 2012 @ 2:14 am

  571. if they make a movie. Make sure they make a good one , there are far to many movies that comes from greate books and the movie itself is aweful, please dont mess this one up

    Comment by toxxic — May 4, 2012 @ 1:35 am

  572. Omg this was an amazing book but I agree that it should not be made into a TV series definetly a movie. I also agree that if you do make a movie you should use the characters on the front of the book then it would be amazing. Man I can’t wait. Yeah and make sure if they do make a movie make it one that only misses little bits of parts and then it would probably be my favorite movie.

    Good luck
    bye -mika

    Comment by mika — May 5, 2012 @ 8:59 pm

  573. I agree with Mika, use the same kids from the covers, and it will definately be my fav movie. They’re attempting it in the Netherlands, but I took one look at it and said NOOOOOO!!!!!
    PLEASE don’t stuff it up, and don’t cut out all the gore either (I’d love to watch Drake loose his arm!!!)
    Not all of us have twitter though so please Update your video and stop leaving us hanging!!!!!!!

    Comment by Rebecca — May 16, 2012 @ 4:30 am

  574. don’t leave me hanging! Don’t leave me hanging!!! Lol

    Comment by Ash — May 23, 2012 @ 1:56 am

  575. This would be an amazing movie, and if they do cast the cover characters that would be good, because they are unknown! It would be a dream come true for some if they allowed fans to audition. But right now, with the Hunger Games fandom, there is a lot of competition, so I can see why nothings happened yet. Plus, if you have read the books from the start, you have a perfect image in your head on how you want the movie to be like. I just hope – if they do make the movie – that the novel isn’t changed to much. In fact, thats what ruined the Hunger Games for me. Its too mainstream and changed now. If there was a movie, I might not even watch it, just to stay true to the novels…..

    Comment by Laura — May 25, 2012 @ 12:46 pm

  576. I thought that the hunger games was pretty good and I have read the series two times I mean take a look at Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Laura ;)

    Comment by Mika — May 29, 2012 @ 12:00 am

  577. I know that the comment above was only about the hunger games sry

    Comment by Mika — May 29, 2012 @ 12:10 am

  578. i think Jodelle Ferland as Diana, and maybe chloe moretz or elle fanning as Astrid

    Comment by eliza — May 30, 2012 @ 7:39 am

  579. @ Eliza I thought about the exact same characters for Astrid. Diana… hmmm not to sure though :) but then again I personally believe fresh faces lk ordinary people like us will be AWESOME!!!!!!

    Comment by Ash — May 31, 2012 @ 3:14 am

  580. Cool love the books u should keep us posted

    Comment by Amy Bryant — June 3, 2012 @ 8:25 am

  581. OMG plz make a movie i would so want to play Diana

    Comment by d — June 6, 2012 @ 3:39 pm

  582. I would be perfect for Diana Latris. I have long dark brown hair and i have really dreamed of playing her part. if you r going to make a movie I would really love to play Diana. Also plz constder having the auditions in NY

    Comment by d — June 6, 2012 @ 3:44 pm

  583. @eliza funny you say Chloe moretz for Astrid, i thought she would make a good Brianna…but she could also make a good astrid…i gues lol

    Comment by Carly — June 7, 2012 @ 10:54 am

  584. Can you audition for the film, and when? I would really like to. I live in Europe, is it impossible to audition?

    Comment by x — June 8, 2012 @ 4:22 am

  585. @ Carly lol these r just suggestions. personally I believe we need “fresh faces” btw @ Riley bog news! I found out that on the cover of gone series Bill Simcox models as Caine Soren; Vienna Sirgiovani models as Diana Ladris; and Eric Hayes models as Sam Temple

    Comment by Ash — June 8, 2012 @ 5:54 am

  586. is the book any closer to being made into a movie now

    Comment by ryan — June 8, 2012 @ 11:56 am

  587. @ X there is no movie at the moment so u can’t actually audition for it. @ Ryan there Is yet no talk for a Gone movie however Michael Grant did say on his twitter page that he had met up with some ppl considering a movie. Fingers crossed!;)

    Comment by Ash — June 8, 2012 @ 11:46 pm

  588. When are the aduitions?

    Comment by Breena — June 9, 2012 @ 10:05 am

  589. @Breena no auditions or movie just yet but hopefully in the near future. However it’s still a very long process if movie contracts were to be signed.

    Comment by Ash — June 9, 2012 @ 8:31 pm

  590. @ash hahah i know…

    Comment by Carly — June 12, 2012 @ 10:53 am

  591. I’m so in love with these books! I would absolutely LOVE to play Albert or Howard! (I’m an inspiring actor) and I totally agree with whoever said they should use unknown actors. Big-named actors would get way too boring to watch but, newer inspiring actors and actresses would be so much fun to see.

    Comment by David — June 17, 2012 @ 4:47 pm

  592. They should totes have auditions open to the public because I personally think I would be great for Albert because I’m black and kinda scrawny! I totally think they should open auditions to the public because that would make things so fun for the fans! They so need to make this into a movie!!!!!

    Comment by David — June 17, 2012 @ 4:52 pm

  593. Lol @ Carly. Out of curiosity if you got a chance to audition who would you audition for? I’d audition for Diana Ladris

    Comment by Ash — June 18, 2012 @ 3:12 am

  594. Lol @ David. I agree with you totally 110%.

    Comment by Ash — June 19, 2012 @ 1:47 am

  595. YAY! Someone agrees with me! Let’s hope that someone important reads this and takes our idea for auditions.

    Comment by David — June 19, 2012 @ 6:23 pm

  596. Are they realy attemting it in the netherlands? that would be great, because I life there! :D I can’t wait. Of course I do an audition !!

    Comment by x — June 22, 2012 @ 9:02 am

  597. would love the book to be made into a movie, and i’d so want to audition! i’d want to audition for Lana or Mary but my british accent could be a flaw…

    Comment by ruth — June 22, 2012 @ 12:23 pm

    Comment by Daniel — June 23, 2012 @ 10:08 am

  602. Sorry @Ash I forgot that you’re kind of a big deal!

    Comment by David — June 24, 2012 @ 10:37 am

  603. @ David lol I was only kidding :)

    Comment by Ash — June 26, 2012 @ 11:39 pm

  604. there needs to be kids in it that are 15 years or younger… some people are suggesting liam hemsworth for sam, thats ridicoulus hes 22!

    Comment by Eliza — June 27, 2012 @ 6:07 am

  605. and also there shouldnt be celebrities in it, they just ruin films. all the best shows and movies had newbies.. like harry potter, skins, pretty little liars and many more, its about the talent not their status :)

    Comment by Eliza — June 27, 2012 @ 6:19 am

  606. Ditto! @ Eliza

    Comment by Ash — June 28, 2012 @ 3:00 am

  607. So true they need newbies like us it would make the movie/s so interesting !!!

    Comment by Daniel — June 28, 2012 @ 3:25 am

  608. I think Gone would be an amazing TV series. Even a movie would be great. Either way, I really hope it happens! :D D

    Comment by Leo — July 7, 2012 @ 6:11 am

  609. I hate it when producers persuade the directors to hire older actors/actresses. It’s SO annoying! If the characters are written to be 15 or 16 then hire people who actually are that age and not something stupid like 25. Who better to portray the mid-teen characters than mid-teens themselves. But that’s just my opinion x

    Comment by Georgia — July 9, 2012 @ 4:31 pm

  610. Sorry it’s me again. I also want to add that the producers and directors should look to new actors/actresses to play the roles. I don’t know about you guys but I’m sick of seeing the same old people on every movie/TV series going. I just get down-right board of them after a while. For example; and I’m not saying I don’t like her which it totally NOT true because she was awesome at playing Bella, but Kristen Stewart is everywhere and I’m a little board of watching her all the time. Same with Alex Petifer. Although he could be my Sam Temple any day! I’m just contradicting myself now aren’t I? Oh well!

    Comment by Georgia — July 9, 2012 @ 4:40 pm

  611. @Georgia so true we need ppl lk us newbies! If u got the chance to audition for any character/s who Would u audition for and y?

    Comment by Ash — July 9, 2012 @ 8:44 pm

  612. i hope the gone series becomes a tv show cuz if it would be made into a movie then theyll have to put everything in 1-2 hours which will rush through the plot and theme and characters so i prefer a tv show that goes on slowly introducing the theme/plot/characters…. besides who wouldnt want to watch gone every week then watch it once ;P ME

    Comment by aimangabz — July 10, 2012 @ 10:07 am

  613. I think a movie would be amazing! But I think that if they made a tv show out of it, I would personally find the director and choke him/her.

    Comment by Lena — July 10, 2012 @ 4:03 pm

  614. I’ve actually changed my mind and think Gone should become a tv series instead of a movie because if and it becomes a movie they will rush it and forget most things which will stink ! I vote for a tv series who’s with me ???

    Comment by Daniel — July 11, 2012 @ 10:23 am

  615. I agree with Daniel. But they forgot a lot of things in the Animorph TV series but in some cases they add things that never happend in the book which is more annoying at times. But TV series for sure.

    Comment by Brnt — July 15, 2012 @ 3:18 pm

  616. I agree with all of you!! TV series that are really good are usually on Foxtel and not everybody has that luxury. @Daniel, if they slow it down it won’t be fun anymore! I love gone mainly because it is fast and action packed and keeps you on the edge of your seat, and they could make it like two and a half hours instead of one…….
    P.S SOOO Glad Penny is dead (she’s a crazy bitch :D )

    Comment by Rebecca — July 18, 2012 @ 2:49 am

  617. The only thing that I want to know is: did they make a movie or not? because I realy wanna see it!!! Better make a movie than a tv serie ;)

    Comment by Gabi — July 20, 2012 @ 7:15 am

  618. @ Gabo no there is no movie at the moment. However there Is a movie set to be released later on this year entitled “Gone” with Amanda Seyfried in it but that is a totally different movie unrelated to the GONE SERIES by Michael Grant. All in all no movie at the moment.

    Comment by Ash — July 23, 2012 @ 2:05 am

  619. @ Gabi not yet but they are looking into it

    Comment by Rebecca — July 24, 2012 @ 3:11 am

  620. i would be a great drake

    Comment by Bailey Sprules — July 24, 2012 @ 2:14 pm

  621. @Gabi I am so sorry!!!! I accidentally misspelt your name! I’m sorry and I apologize. It was simply a typo.

    Comment by Ash — July 25, 2012 @ 1:29 am

  622. @Rebecca
    are you sure? they’ve been trying since 2009 to make a movie so I think that’ not gonna happen. Otherwise it wouldn’t have taken so long.

    Comment by Sophia — July 29, 2012 @ 7:55 am

  623. tv series would be great, but they would soften it done too much because they wouldnt want kids being violent like they are in the books :( just like the hunger games!

    Comment by Eliza — August 1, 2012 @ 4:17 am

  624. @ sophia
    don’t be a spoil-sport! Haven’t you seen Michaels latest video’s?? He’s still trying people are interested, and there are a lot of producers out there. Shut up and stop killing the dream for us!!!
    @ Eliza
    Don’t soften it! I would love to see a bit of violence here and there (I wanna see drake loose his arm) it wouldn’t be gone without wanting to throw up afterwards. And a tv show would stretch it out too much

    Comment by Rebecca — August 2, 2012 @ 2:00 am

  625. @sophia Just be patient. Its easy to just sit here and complain about it not coming out, but im sure it takes a lot of effort to even plan the making of a movie. Just wait. :)

    Comment by Pooburger — August 2, 2012 @ 2:07 am

  626. Eliza is right they won’t be violent and goory like in the book e.g when the bugs are in Dekka and are eating her

    Comment by Daniel — August 2, 2012 @ 2:24 pm

  627. @ daniel
    Yeah, but when you read it, it actually says that they were crawling around under her top, you don’t actually get any details. And give it an MA rating they can make it as gory as they want!
    IT IS NOT GONE IF IT IS NOT GORY!!!!!

    Comment by Rebecca — August 5, 2012 @ 4:13 am

  628. may anyone explain to me what i need to do to become a voice actor for Video Games or Cartoons?

    Comment by Danilo Pritchard — August 5, 2012 @ 7:14 pm

  629. I’m nearly 30, and Ive been reading this series. I agree with you, it should be made into a tv series or film.
    I think HBO should pick it up, They have done an amazing job on Game of Thrones, and also they did Band of Brothers, (which was a very realistic, gory at times, drama series following army squad in WW2) amongst many other amazing series.They are the people who will spend a lot of time, money and effort on it, and it will not disappoint.
    There will be quite a few CGI elements, eg: the darkness,talking cyotes, not to mention the actual powers people have etc. But low budget CGI is cringey and unbelievable.If the Gone series is done wrong, rushed and cheaply it will be awful, and everyone will be disappointed. (including me).
    Also you have to remember the producers have to keep violence to a level acceptable for the age group set by the film board.You have to remember there is (underage) drinking and drug taking in here too, which pushes the certificate grading up. 12A will not be worth it, if it was an 18 there would be uproar that it is a book for teenagers, that teenagers cant watch. So it means it would have to be a 15 (R in U.S)this is from wikipedia on a U.K certificate 15: ‘Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury.’
    ‘Abuse of weapons which are easily obtained will not be tolerated’.

    But however they achieve it, tv or film. I hope it is good, and justifies the books.

    Comment by Em — August 7, 2012 @ 7:22 am

  630. I seriously think Gone should be a movie. It is the best book I have ever read. I would LOVE to play Astrid. So if it does get made into a movie I would love it!!!!!

    Comment by Allison — August 7, 2012 @ 11:03 pm

  631. @ash hahha sorry i didnt c that comment before but i would try out for Dekka. She’s my fave charater! lol just cause i love the quote tha she says o sam in hunger “Sam, thats a great ncpt and maybe you believe it. ut im black and a lesbian. So let me tell you. From what i know? Personal experines? there ar always lins” i hav that memorized lol me and you wouldnt be to muh of friens would we lol

    Comment by carly wyche — August 11, 2012 @ 6:14 pm

  632. @Carly Wyche lol I’m sure we’d get along!
    though I’d doubt Diana and Dekka would! Lol :)

    Comment by Ash — August 14, 2012 @ 3:09 am

  633. i would love to be in this movie im 14 so im in the age of the ppl in the book and they should make this a movie all my friends have read it and think i would be perfect as diana i would love to audition for this

    Comment by Arianna Cervantes — August 15, 2012 @ 11:47 am

  634. @Ash yeah…we would!!!! i so hope this is made into a movie with open auditions. Thats were i stand and am going to stand with it lol this needs to happen lol where do you stand on this?

    Comment by carly wyche — August 16, 2012 @ 3:32 pm

  635. i definately agree! If they could do it with Hunger games they could do it with Gone. But i don’t think it matters about the rating. I’m 15, and I know for a fact that kids older and younger then me don’t give a damn about the rating. If it’s MA15+, 14 and 13 year olds would still be watching it, and they don’t have to cut so much out of it.

    Comment by Rebecca — August 18, 2012 @ 10:35 pm

  636. @Carly Wyche I stand right by you! Figuratively speaking that is! Lol

    Comment by Ash — August 21, 2012 @ 4:25 am

  637. I have finished reading the gone series and think its amazing please make it into a movie but also dont try and restrict it to a 12 let it show the true story so make it a 15 or 18 please even though im only 11

  642. You NEED to make a movie out of the book Gone and all the other books in the Gone Series!!!! It was one of the BEST series i have ever read in my entire LIFE!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!! It would be an AWESOME movie!!!! I would LOVE to see it SOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — September 1, 2012 @ 2:28 pm

  644. I’m with Rebecca here

    Comment by Daniel — September 2, 2012 @ 11:38 pm

  645. Honestly, I think Gone should become a tv series, not a movie. The book is full of cliffhangers so it would be perfect. A movie would be shortened and ruin it

    Comment by Rayn — September 4, 2012 @ 9:27 am

  646. I think it would SOO COOOOL! If Gone was a Tv series!!!! It would be my FAVORITE Tv series EVER!!!! I would love to watch it!!!! OMG!!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — September 7, 2012 @ 7:24 pm

  647. But to comment on Rayn’s comment you should make it into a movie like serioulsy!!!!! I would LOVE to watch it!! But it should be alot like the book!!! Not like the movies that miss important parts!!! PLEASE!!! MAKE IT A MOVIE AND TV SERIES!!!! :P

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — September 13, 2012 @ 9:30 am

  648. Yes they should totally make this a movie!!! The people on the covers are amazing but they’re probably just models, not actors. Theres a difference. Although i love the Astrid, diana, quinn, dekka and brittney on the covers.

    Comment by Anna Banana — September 16, 2012 @ 6:36 am

  649. Right!! They should use the guy that was Sam on the covers!!! And Astrid!!! But I wonder who would play Drake, he was like madly insane but he had no powers just a whip for a hand!! That must have been weird,but when they are thinking of who should play Drake they should pick someone who could really play the part well!!! And when does Light come out??? Wanna read that really bad!! :P

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — September 16, 2012 @ 3:24 pm

  650. And your most likely right that they are Models and NOT Actors, but should use people that look like them!!! That would be cool! And I agree with you Anna :P

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — September 16, 2012 @ 3:28 pm

  651. Light comes out next year. Preferably in April

    Comment by Ash — September 18, 2012 @ 1:22 am

  652. Thanks!! I hope Drake dies!! At the end of Fear i was hoping that!! But he didnt so thats kinda disappointing!!! I wanna read Light!! I wanna know what happens to Diana and her Baby!! :P

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — September 20, 2012 @ 2:35 pm

  653. Lol @ Ashley Barooks we all do

    Comment by Ash — September 21, 2012 @ 3:21 am

  655. Agreed!!! I really wanna know whats going to happen to all of them!!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — September 23, 2012 @ 10:31 am

  656. No none of us can wait for light, but I’m more interested in finding out whats going to happen now all the adults can see the FAYZ! I was so glad Penny was dead in fear!!

    Comment by Rebecca — September 23, 2012 @ 6:27 pm

  657. @Ash Right!! I wonder if they ever get out of that thing!!! They might or might not! I wanna know!!! Can’t Wait!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — September 24, 2012 @ 4:08 pm

  658. @Rebecca, I sooooo agree!! I was very happy!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — September 25, 2012 @ 3:43 pm

  659. I guess we’ll have to wait to see what happens then

    Comment by Rebecca — September 27, 2012 @ 11:15 pm

  660. Yep, but alot of people CAN’T wait for it to come out!!! I wonder if they will get out of that dome.

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — September 30, 2012 @ 3:53 pm

  661. @ ashley i hope they do, but i’m also hoping it doesn’t end in some ‘they all lived happily ever after’ way

    Comment by Rebecca — September 30, 2012 @ 7:34 pm

  662. @Rebecca, your soo right!! I mean it shouldn’t end like happily ever after!!! I think it would ruin the ending if they did that!!! I mean Drake should die!! In my opinion!

    Talk about needing a mental hospital!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — October 15, 2012 @ 3:15 pm

  675. OMG!! just finished ‘FEAR’, amazing book , this one works the same to me like the eragon-trilogy , tunnels by roderick gordon and brain williams!!and the kliff chronicles :D D , lovvvveeeee it !!!!! , i guess i will save these books for when i turn 30 or something.. ( what means i have 14 years from now on ;;ddd ) *** BUT@@*** is there going to be a movie or not?? I don’t rlly get it…

    Comment by dave — October 16, 2012 @ 2:43 pm

  676. Did u read all of the Gone series? Fear was amazing! Although i was upset when Drake didn’t die!! There most likely gonna be a movie and I CAN”T WAIT FOR IT!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — October 17, 2012 @ 2:39 pm

  677. I loved this series!! CANT WAIT for the MOVIE

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — October 18, 2012 @ 2:34 pm

  678. @ dave, they are looking into it. Michael Grant is talking to producers and stuff now. There is nobody interested at the moment but they are thinking about it. @Ashley Barooks, I think Drake has gone past a mental hospital…… but yes he should die!!!!

    Comment by Rebecca — October 18, 2012 @ 8:18 pm

  679. Yea, even though him and Caine are both bad guys Caine is so much better, Drake is just a mentally ill person who needs serious help. I like Caine though everyone loves a bad guy!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — October 20, 2012 @ 3:57 pm

  680. True Caine is awesome!!

    Comment by Rebecca — October 22, 2012 @ 6:38 am

  681. Yea but not my favorite, i have no idea of who my favorite character is! They are all awesome…. well not all of them but most!!! But Same sounds so HOT! Same with Edilio but he is Gay!!!! OMG!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — October 22, 2012 @ 4:36 pm

  682. I know!! :’( Caine sounds hotter, just saying, but my fave character is definately Lana!!

    Comment by Rebecca — October 23, 2012 @ 7:10 pm

  683. Idk i loved them all!! Except Drake and Penny they both deserved to die!! Have to admit Penny had it coming!! Caine and Sam sound so hot!! and i might like Edilio even he wasn’t gay! When i found out i was like what?! and reread that part to make sure i read it right, i was like OMG!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — October 24, 2012 @ 2:44 pm

  684. True, Penny Drake but also Astrid!! She’s a bitch! And yes, I couldn’t beleive that Penny died, I was like YES!!!

    Comment by Rebecca — October 25, 2012 @ 9:45 pm

  685. Sorry, mean’t if he wasn’t gay! I was shocked!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — October 26, 2012 @ 1:16 pm

  686. I always thought edilio liked lana……..

    Comment by Rebecca — October 27, 2012 @ 4:43 am

  687. Yea in the beginning he did though!! The end of Fear is when they finally told us he was gay!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — October 27, 2012 @ 3:40 pm

  688. So did i, but i think she likes Sanjit

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — October 28, 2012 @ 4:10 pm

  689. They seem to have forgotten about a few things from the first book, like Edilio and Lana, and what happened to Astrids moof?

    Comment by Rebecca — October 28, 2012 @ 6:24 pm

  690. Astrids moof?

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — October 30, 2012 @ 3:05 pm

  691. Yes, remember? When she and sam were above the church in the end she was talking about it….. :/

    Comment by Rebecca — November 1, 2012 @ 10:47 pm

  692. I don’t think i remember, what was it again? I forgot

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — November 2, 2012 @ 2:30 pm

  693. She could like see pople’s fates or something. She said that Sam was ‘the brghtest star in the sky’…. Apparently one of the major characters die in Light… I hope it’s her :)

    Comment by Rebecca — November 4, 2012 @ 1:01 am

  694. Please !! For all the fans around the world who were as gripped to the book as I was, make a film. If nobody does ,I will !!

    Comment by Grace Murphy — November 4, 2012 @ 11:20 am

  695. Lol, cool bet it was soo awkward when Dekka told Brianna that she loved her. I love Brianna’s power!! Super Speed!! Or Taylor’s, but she died :( because Little Peetey tried to make her better!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — November 4, 2012 @ 1:39 pm

  696. Hahah u guys got instgram??? Follow my fan base role play @lana_the_healer !!! :-D

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — November 9, 2012 @ 7:08 pm

  699. hahahah lol :-D @ Ashley Barooks

    Comment by Ash — November 10, 2012 @ 6:23 pm

  700. Well yea, I wanna see if Drake dies!! @Ash

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — November 11, 2012 @ 11:09 am

  701. This would be an amazing movie! I am obsessed with these books! Go Michael Grant!!! I really hope someone decides to complete the entire series, unlike the Percy Jackson series. :-(

    Comment by Ryan — November 14, 2012 @ 8:24 pm

  702. Her thing, these books will become so popular, like the Hunger Games. The school library now has 8 copies of the Hinger Games because of the movie craze. It would be flippin’ amazing if you could talk about these books with everyone you knew. I love talking about books with my friends, but they’ve never read half of what I have! I love this series and really want to see how screenwriters portray everyone. And about using your imagination, it’s awesome to imagine the storyline, but seeing how someone else does it, especially with high expectations, is just amazing.

    Comment by Ryan — November 14, 2012 @ 8:33 pm

  703. IKR! I wanna see if they don’t miss the important parts!! Like in the Hunger Games, they missed the part of where she got the pin! They got it wrong!!! @Ryan

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — November 15, 2012 @ 6:37 pm

  704. But these movies are gonna be good!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — November 18, 2012 @ 5:55 pm

  705. True!!! But yes, if they miss any facts like in the hunger games (I wanted to see the prep team :( ) but at the smae time I don’t want it to be ruined. Like the hunger games, I had read the first one before the movies and i enjoyed it, then the movie came out and everyone was so obsessed with it, it kind of ruined it a bit :(
    Oh well….. can’t wait for light!

    Comment by Rebecca — November 25, 2012 @ 5:42 pm

  706. @Rebecca, RIGHT! I wanted to see her prep team!! But all we saw was Cinna! And she did not just pick up the pin from the market place, the mayors daughter gave it to her for crying out loud!!!! I don’f care if this sounds rude, but i want Drake to die!!! He deserves it!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — November 26, 2012 @ 3:45 pm

  707. @Ashley I know!! So do I!! I was glad when Penny died! :) what I was disapointed with most about the Hunger Games was the fact that they died it down majorly!! It wasn’t as graphic as I was hoping it would be (Especially with the wasps!) If they do that if they make this movie I will be sooooo pissed!! I wanna see Drake loose his arm!! :)

    Comment by Rebecca — November 28, 2012 @ 1:33 am

  708. @Rebecca, right!!! But I wanna see Drake die!!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — November 30, 2012 @ 6:23 pm

  709. @ Ashley Yes!!!! I think everybody wants that!!! (Him and Astrid :) :))

    Comment by Rebecca — December 4, 2012 @ 1:13 am

  710. Most definetly Sam and Astrid……. But im glad Astrid is back! Can’t wait to see what happens next! :D

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — December 6, 2012 @ 4:40 pm

    Comment by Rebecca — December 6, 2012 @ 10:52 pm

  720. I love these books!!! AMAZING!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — December 7, 2012 @ 4:00 pm

  721. @Rebecca, i want there to be a movie too! Hope its gonna be good!!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — December 13, 2012 @ 4:01 pm

  722. @Ashley it will be good as long as they don’t die it down or cut too much out :)

    Comment by Rebecca — December 17, 2012 @ 12:18 am

  723. @Rebecca, Right!! They MUST have ALL the important parts! Heck, they need to have like everything!! Then it’d be amazing!!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — December 17, 2012 @ 4:16 pm

  724. @ Ashley Yes!!! Like the background story with Sam’s step-dad and the light in his wardrobe :) They only put half the story in the hunger games it was a pain!

    Comment by Rebecca — December 18, 2012 @ 6:53 am

  725. @Rebecca, OMG RIGHT! But it was a good movie……. Still this one would be AWESOME if they had ALL important parts!!! I mean ALL

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — December 19, 2012 @ 4:15 pm

  726. @ Ashley, yes agreed hunger games was awesome, but forget important parts in gone, because I reckon every single part and word of Gone was important :)

    Comment by Rebecca — December 19, 2012 @ 10:36 pm

  727. @Rebecca, But i think the movie will be good!!! Hope soo!

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — December 21, 2012 @ 4:12 pm

  728. @Ryan hey out of curiosity is this the same Ryan who role plays Caine on our GONE role play on Instagram. And also has a The Hunger Games fan base account on Instagram???? Coz if it is HI!!!!!! ITS ME ASH!!!! (aka role play for Lana). If you are a completely different Ryan, I’m sorry for being a weirdo…

    Comment by Ash — January 6, 2013 @ 5:40 pm

  729. @Ash, that would be extremely awkward if it wasn’t him

    Comment by Ashley Barooks — February 7, 2013 @ 5:53 pm

  730. gone is one of the best books ive ever read i really hope that it and all the other books get movies, if there is any way you can make them put alot of effort into it pleas do cuz i have very high expectations for it:)

    Comment by tristian — February 13, 2013 @ 10:34 am

    Comment by Rebecca — February 25, 2013 @ 2:57 am

    Comment by Em — March 13, 2013 @ 1:54 am

  735. @Rebecca, LUCKY!
    @ash, Yup

    Comment by Kelly Valle — March 17, 2013 @ 10:14 am

  736. @Kelly Valle, Yes! Thank you! I also recommend to everyone to go onto Youtube because michael grant reads a bit of light and it is awesome!! (Also there is new info on the movie!) Just type in light-michael grant and it should be right there. If you havent already :)

    Comment by Rebecca — March 17, 2013 @ 7:40 pm

  737. @Rebecca, thanks for that!
    For me its coming out April 2nd… 2 days! Hahahaha YAY

    Comment by Kelly Valle — March 31, 2013 @ 4:53 pm

  738. OMG. I LOVE THESE BOOKS! THEY ARE MY FAVOURITE EVER! NEARLY BETTER THEN THE HUNGER GAMES!… NO, BETTER THAN THE HUNGER GAMES!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, I LOVE KISS YOU IF YOU DID….. ACTUALLY…. ANYWAY!

    Comment by Beth — April 14, 2013 @ 12:49 pm

  739. @Beth go onto YouTube, and search ‘Light Michael Grant’ and click in the video where he reveals an excert (?) from Light, and there is an update on the movie :) and agreed it is better then the Hunger Games, and would be the best movie ever!
    I’m about to start the sixth book YAY!!!!

    Comment by Rebecca — April 14, 2013 @ 11:05 pm

  740. @Beth, IKR THESE BOOKS ARE AWESOME

    Comment by Kelly Valle — April 16, 2013 @ 3:05 pm

  741. @Rebecca, LUCKY

    Comment by Kelly Valle — April 19, 2013 @ 8:33 pm

  742. Theyd better cast it right if they do. Logan Lerman for Caine would be good and Taya Campbell Over is the living eptomime of Diana.

    Comment by Jacia — May 9, 2013 @ 11:27 am

  743. @Jacia, what I wanna know id who is gonna play Lana… She is one of my favorites!! They NEEEEDDD to cast this thing right!!!

    Comment by Kelly Valle — May 22, 2013 @ 3:31 pm

  744. @Jacia they need to be careful though, they cant make the characters too old or it wont be beleivable

    Comment by Rebecca — May 28, 2013 @ 8:39 pm

  745. OMG it will be so awesome. But I think it will be beter if they make a tv serie of Gone instead of a movie. But if not I will certainly watch the movie(s).

    Comment by Mini — July 23, 2013 @ 8:25 am

  746. @Mini, I’d watch it either way.. Shows or Movie it will be good :)

    Comment by Kelly — August 17, 2013 @ 4:06 pm

  747. Please make it into a movie!!!!!! It would be amazing! And they need to make the movie like the book, I hate it when the movie is nothing like the book. THE DIRECTOR NEEDS TO ACTUALLY READ THE BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT JUST SKIN OVER IT. Make sure the actors look like they could be young enough to be in the FAYZ!!! BEST WISHES!!!!!!!

    Comment by Annabeth — November 6, 2013 @ 11:54 pm

  748. Make it a video game.

    Comment by Drew — December 7, 2013 @ 1:04 pm

  749. MAKE A MOVIE OF THE BOOK.PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by bob — February 20, 2014 @ 11:48 am

  750. IN A WAY THAT WORLD WOULD BE AWESOME TO LIVE IN, BUT IN A WAY A SCARY WAY TO LIVE UR CHILDHOOD.

    Comment by bob — February 20, 2014 @ 11:51 am

  751. U should make it a movie. It will bring in tons of money. and not just teens will watch it, a lot of kids have been exploring darker themes. im 11 and ive read the entire series. believe me, the gone series would be SO popular.
