Next Hunger Games Under Quarantine by Black Forest?
The Hunger Games has made dystopian futures a popular thing, especially amongst the teen and young adult audiences. Readers and movie goers alike are eating up the theme as if it was something near and dear to their hearts. As the dream to live in a world where we are caged and dictated to, grows in the hearts and minds of youngsters so they may one day be the hero, or heroine and lead the rebellion to save the world, Hollywood has jumped on that bandwagon and is running with it.
In our not too distant future another Hunger Games-style movie will hit the theatres. According to Variety Black Forest Film Group has acquired the film rights for the novel Quarantine: The Loners by by Lex Thomas, a pseudonym for authors Lex Hrabe and Thomas Voorhies. In the same vein as The Hunger Games, Quarantine will also consist of three books in the series, Loners being the first.
Described as cross between The Warriors and Lord of the Flies, Quarantine is an action-thriller about a virus that kills anyone after puberty. That means no adults. While some teens might revel in the though of not having any parents, Quarantine looks at the kind of social breakdown that occurs among teens when there are no rules left.
After the virus breaks out in a high school filled with 1000 youngsters, the military quarantines the school in hopes of containing the outbreak. The story follows two brothers as they are kept in the school during the epidemic. After being locked up for over a year, the school becomes a battleground with violent gangs forming based on previously established social cliques. Instead of battling for popularity however, the students must fight for survival.
While it is similar to The Hunger Games, Quarantine has one fundamental difference. The protagonists are male instead of female. Having a female protagonist has undoubtedly drawn in a huge female following for the novels which translated to The Hunger Games movie. Quarantine will likely do well in theatres but probably will not be able to duplicate the success of The Hunger Games. Who out there will watch Quarantine when it is released in theatres? Better yet, will you pick up the book and read it simply because you are a fan of The Hunger Games series?
My question to Hollywood is, with all these post-apocalyptic survival movies about teens having to kill one another, when will they come out with a remake of Battle Royal?
Quarantine is still in the early stages of development so no release date has been decided yet. Look for the book when it hits shelves and look for more info right here as movie details develop!
