I'm very happy to tell you guys that The Darkest Minds film is now officially in the works, with filming to start on April 3rd. You can find the IMDB page here!
- The film only covers the first book, but if it does well... we'll see what happens!
- Chad Hodge wrote the script, which is awesome.
- Jennifer Yuh Nelson is directing, which is also awesome!
- 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. They are currently casting the other characters in the film, but I have no information or say in it, I'm sorry! Truly. I have nothing to do with casting.
- However, if you're in the Atlanta area, they ARE looking for a variety of extras!
- Filming is due to begin April 3rd and will wrap in June. It will be out sometime in 2018, I believe, with an official release date to be decided in the future.
