Forgotten, the movie

It’s been so long since I’ve blogged that I’ve almost forgotten how (I’m not exactly doing well on that resolution, am I?), but I had to share today’s amazing news: Paramount bought the rights to Forgotten and Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) is attached to play London. I have to say that True Grit has my vote for the best movie of last year, and I was rooting for Hailee to get an Oscar way before this ever happened.  So when I heard that she likes Forgotten and agreed to be attached to the project, I was thrilled.  Then Paramount and an exceptional team of producers joined the fun. Of course, not every project purchased in Hollywood gets made into a movie–not even by a long shot–but for today, I am flat out thrilled.  Hailee will make a perfect London and here’s crossing fingers and toes that it happens.  Today’s news is a great big giant leap in the right direction. Read all about it here (photo is from, as well). And best of luck next weekend, Hailee.  You deserve it, girl.

  13. I loved reading your book so much.
    Actually, I live in Japan and speak japanese. I met this novel in bookstore while visiting france. I was looking for an english novel to read to keep my english. I was in U.K. and USA for three years each.
    Anyway, the story was so interesting and excitng that I read in a week (that’s quite fast to come to the end of a foreign novel, isn’t it?) Ofcourse with a dictionary in the other hand.

    So many precious words to remember. So many important things written in this novel.
    I was so impressed.

    Wish my note’s english is not too bad that making this this message complicated. Hope you can understand.

    The book was wonderful.

    Thanks, Sarah

  15. Hi…!! I’ve read this book 5 times straight! I got caught in class for reading it during class. Its obsessive! Thank you, Cat! Please tell me when’s the movie coming out. E-mail me! Cant wait to hear from you. P/s: You’re awesome. I fully support Hailee and everyone! Im always online for updates. Xoxoxo, Nicole. 😉

  23. OH MY GOSH. A movie about the best book in history?!! *screams* I cannot believe this! Cat, you are absolutely my all-time favorite author!!! You are SUCH an inspiration and Revive left me in awe of your work. I really hope Paramount does a fantastic job on this movie because you deserve it girl!
    -Your biggest fan yet!!(:

  24. Have they already made the movie or… are they not making it??? I hope it will be made because this is my all time favourite book and I have read it 15-20 times at the least!

    1. They’re not making it, unfortunately. Sometimes movie studios buy book rights and let them expire without filming. That was the case here, unfortunately.

  25. Hi, Cat!
    I’m from Brazil and I’ve to say that I loved your book Forgotten!!
    My doubt is: are you thinking about a new book about London and Luke?
    I loved this couple and I think that Forgotten was not much clear about what happened with Luke. Will he really die or not?
    I would be very happy with your answer.

    With you the best!!

    1. Thank you, Joyce. No, I’m not planning a sequel to Forgotten, as I think the ending gives enough while still leaving something to the imagination. I’m glad you enjoyed the book. Best, Cat
