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’s even more buzz surrounding the upcoming movie.
“The sales of ‘Legend’ have gone up, so back at CBS films, they’re all of a sudden going, ‘Okay, now let’s push up,’” 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.
“This is really urban decay. It’s Los Angeles in the future. It’s 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, ‘We’ve got to change things’ mentality, is what makes the book so strong.”
