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 Deadline.com, as well). And best of luck next weekend, Hailee.  You deserve it, girl.

    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

  39. Abigail says:

    Might you have additional posts just like this particular one named, Forgotten, the movie

  40. Molly says:

    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!

    • CatPatrick says:

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

  41. Joyce says:

    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!!

    • CatPatrick says:

      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
