The Mystery of the Movie's Other Bad Guy;

So when they make the Daughter of Smoke and Bone movie, can they begin the movie with a dream-like sequence where Madrigal places her head on the anvil and she’s looking out at Akiva who’s screaming and being held back by chimaera and it’s all slow and she smiles and then it goes black right before the execution? Because that’d be fucking awesome.

Honestly, I should just direct the movie so we know the whole thing’s not gonna get completely butchered.

It was announced in late 2013 that Daughter of Smoke and Bone was picked up by Universal Pictures to be the next biggest YA book to movie adaptation. At first, I was overjoyed because the second I finished reading the series I thought "God that would be an incredible movie!" However, the more I thought about it, the more I begin to doubt it. The movie budget would have to literally be at least $500 million or more spent on mostly CGI and special effects to even begin to do justice to all the detail in the character and worlds depicted in the books. Realistically, movie studios will not shovel out that much on the first movie of a potential trilogy. It is my opinion that books are always so much better than the movie and I really hope that a crappy depiction of Daughter of Smoke and Bone on film does not have a negative impact on the book series. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie is a clear example of what damage a movie can have on a book series. That book series was phenomenal but the movie was not the greatest reflection of that and the marketing was garbage so the sequel just barely received the green light and who knows how that one will do. It's a total shame too because The Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series are also on my top book series list and the movie potential is beyond high if done correctly. Currently, there is not much information on when the Daughter of Smoke and Bone movie is set to be released or the cast but I think we won't see it out until at least 2016. I wouldn't mind waiting longer because I hope that the movie does the series justice as it would be a true optical masterpiece!
