Catherine Hardwicke Eyeing Maximum Ride
Not sure if you’re afraid of birds like some of our readership, but I know everyone is afraid of wolves. Slavering, violent, beastily monstrosities that they are. So what’s scarier than wolves and birds? Why, wolf and birdmen, of course!
THR reports that Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke is eyeballing the James Patterson novel series Maximum Ride as her way of showing she can screw up more than just teen vampire series. What’s it about?
The five-volume series by James Patterson chronicles six teens, known as the Flock, who are genetically altered so that they are part human and part bird. Learning to fly, they escape the laboratory where they have been housed and are pursued by a pack of creatures called the Erasers that are part human and part wolf.
