Movie Monday - Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment

So, this series has been really popular.  I dont know how I haven't read it yet!  This is the first book in the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson.  The book is set in the near future and centers around the 'flock', a group of human-avian hybrids (98% human, 2% bird) on the run from the scientists who created them. It focuses on Maximum Ride (Max), the leader of the 'flock.'

In January 2007, it was announced that a film would be created based on the Maximum Ride series. James Patterson will be the executive producer. On August 7, 2008, it was announced that Columbia Pictures bought the screen rights to the franchise. The film was slated for an early to mid 2010 release. (obviously that didn't happen thou! Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) will direct the first movie, with Don Payne (He wrote Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer) writing the script.  In January 2010 it was announced that the film will go into pre-production as the film's director Catherine Hardwicke asked for a script rewrite as she wanted more action in the film, delaying the film's release until 2013.

That's all the news I have for you at the moment, hopefully we will learn more when more starts to happen for this!

Who would you want to see play Max?  How about the rest of the members of his flock?
