Hardwicke rides again

03.17.2009

Apparently Catherine Hardwicke loves young-adult fantasy series. After directing that TWILIGHT movie everybody went apeshit for, Hardwicke is now in talks to develop and direct a film adaptation of "Maximum Ride", another epic tale about hot boys and girls with special powers. Instead of blood-sucking vampires, the teenagers in this series are genetically altered so that they are part human and part bird. They are called The Flock, and when The Flock teaches themselves to fly, they escape the laboratory where they are being held captive and are pursued by a pack of creatures called the Erasers, that are part human and part wolf. And no, I'm not making this stuff up.

Don Payne (FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER) is writing the screenplay based on the the five-volume series by James Patterson. The most appealing aspect of this whole project has got to be the idea of these kids teaching themselves to fly; man is that ever impressive! I'm 26 and the only thing I've ever taught myself is how not to get any on my stomach.
Extra Tidbit: If this film is anything like FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER we're in for a real treat! Who likes sarcasm?

lol this sounds like a joke, what a terrible-sounding premise
plus with the "talent" involved, I don't see how this will not suck

Hardwick fucked up twilight. She can direct "indie talkers", emotional type movies that invole a lot of close ups, that's about it. For anything on a grand scale, she sucks. She couldn't make people sparkle in a movie, what makes people think she can make them fly.

I work at a middle school and read the first two books in this series. They are crap. Hardwicke is a talented director (I don't think you can watch Thirteen and say that she's a bad one) but based on the lukewarm reviews Twilight got, I'm guessing that she isn't up to the task of transforming mediocre young adult fiction into good films.
