Longtime readers will remember that I love The Angel Experiment (Maximum Ride, Book 1), the first book in the YA fantasy series by James Patterson. So I’m excited that Maximum Ride is Columbia Pictures is going to adapt Maximum Ride into a movie. Don Payne (Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, My Super Ex-Girlfriend) will write the script, James Patterson will be the executive producer, and Avi Arad, Aria Arad, and Steven Paul will produce the film.
Patterson also has a fifth book in the series coming out–Waterwings: A Maximum Ride Novel (Maximum Ride): A Maximum Ride Novel, which will be published March 16, 2009 (Little, Brown and Company). And then there’s the magna version of Maximum Ride, which will be released Jan 6, 2009. There’s a lot happening around Maximum Ride!
If you like fantasy, you might want to take a look at the first book in the series; it really is a fun trip.
