I'm very happy to tell you guys that The Darkest Minds film is now officially on DVD, Digital, and Blu-Ray!
The film only covers the first book.
Chad Hodge wrote the script.
Jennifer Yuh Nelson is directing.
Amandla Stenberg has been cast as Ruby, Harris Dickinson has been cast as Liam, Miya Cech is playing Zu, and Skylan Brooks has signed on for Chubs! Also joining the cast? Mandy Moore as Cate and Patrick Gibson as Clancy.
I can't answer your questions about what they did or didn't include in the movie--I am not involved with the creative decisions or casting.
Here is a list of the current release dates. Keep checking the IMDB release page for updates if you do not see your country listed. This film will have a wide global release, but they're still scheduling (and rescheduling after the US release date moved up).
