Good news, JJJ Book Club — the film adaption for “Legend” by Marie Lu is still happening!
The second book in the series, “Prodigy,” was just released and now there‚Äôs even more buzz surrounding the upcoming movie.
‚ÄúThe sales of ‘Legend’ have gone up, so back at CBS films, they‚Äôre all of a sudden going, ‚ÄėOkay, now let‚Äôs push up,‚Äô‚ÄĚ one of the producers Wyck Godfrey told MTV.
And while comparisons to The Hunger Games are swirling the web, he promises “Legend” will offer something completely different.
‚ÄúThis is really urban decay. It‚Äôs Los Angeles in the future. It‚Äôs got a much more tangible, relatable kind of feel to it,” he shared. “So we want somebody who can sort of build that world, but we also wanna get somebody who gets the relationship between these two lead characters, which is really the meat of it, and the sense of feeding revolution in youth, which I feel like exists in the country right now that, ‚ÄėWe‚Äôve got to change things‚Äô mentality, is what makes the book so strong.”
