Some good/bad news came out today, Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead has be optioned by Preger Entertainment . This does not nessecarily mean it will become a movie, it just means that Preger has the option to be made into a film. Preger has the rights and can decide to move ahead with the project or not. You can read Richelle’s blog post to learn more. Read the press release here.
Now, I like movies, but I dislike movies made off books. This is good/bad news. I love Vampire Academy and would love to see it be made into a movie, however, movies based on books are often, in my opinion, EPIC FAILS. I know that movies cannot have everything the book has, but I feel movies take away the true value of books. If the movie is done right, I have no problem with the movie, but more often then not it is not done right. I’m excited that it may possibly be on the big screen, but if the movie isn’t true to the books, I will not be seeing it. Hence, this is good/bad news.
