Looks like we’ll be getting that “Maximum Ride” movie…sort of.
Written by James Patterson, the “Maximum Ride” series centers on six kids who have been genetically modified to be 98% human and 2% bird — giving them wings and the power of flight. After they escape from the lab facility known as The School and are pursued by their former captors.
“‘Maximum Ride’ has a massive global fan base and it is very exciting to think about connecting with them online,” Mr. Patterson shared in a statement. “I’m confident that CDS will help introduce the book series to a completely new audience as well.”
A few years ago, Columbia Pictures had acquired the film rights before it shifted over to Universal Pictures. However, a Universal rep said “Maximum Ride” is no longer in development at the studio.
WHAT DO YOU THINK of “Maximum Ride” becoming a mini-series?
