News: Mockingjay Movie to be a Two-Parter?
Look at this quote from Wikipedia: “Woody Harrelson revealed in an interview on MTV Movie Night that he has signed on for four films. This suggests that Mockingjay, the final book in the series, will be adapted into a two-part film.” How does this make you feel? Is there a sudden influx of Harry Potter copycatting going on?

Question: Who would you like?
As you can see from our previous post, it’s very plausible that GONE could become a television series (so awesome right?) and one thing I’m wondering is who will play the characters. I know Michael Grant wants it to remain as true to the book as possible, so that means no grown up actors. Although, it doesn’t hurt to speculate. So who do you think would make the best Sam, or the...
News: More coverage on the possible Gone TV Series
Courtesy of our friends at gonefans: While Michael Grant has always mentioned that he is working on some sort of film creation, this is our first confirmation that a TV Series is being actively pursued!
