Good news to those who've read VICIOUS by Victoria Schwab! Film rights have been acquired by Ridley Scott's Production Company! I loved VICIOUS and am totally excited to see this in live action, but after watching Ender's Game, I am now a bit fearful of movie adaptations. Ender's Game is a lovely book but is very character-driven, and the film was so fast-paced that it failed to show Ender's growth and frustrations. Heck, it didn't even show Peter when he was vital to Ender's breakdowns!
I am excited for Vicious, but I hope if this gets approved, they make it a miniseries instead. Like 6 episodes or something. Enough to polish the characters and give us that noir feel.
What do you guys think?
