Will Keeper of the Lost Cities be a movie?

In 2017, Shannon Messenger was asked about this on Goodreads. This was her answer:

Sadly, that’s up to Hollywood, and all I can say is, “Hopefully–and hopefully if it happens they’ll do a good job with it” See source.

Two years later things haven’t changed, there have not been any updates regarding a movie adaptation for this series. Even so, the author seems willing to have an adaptation of her story, since she provides her agent’s email in order for producers to inquire about film/television options.

Maybe now that Disney Plus is coming they might have a chance? as it may happen with Percy Jackson’s adaptation?

Seems like the movies will have to wait, maybe when the saga is finished?  meanwhile, there are some fan-made trailers. Here is an example of a fan made trailer, cool isn’t it?

5 Comments on "Keeper of the Lost Cities: how to read and what to know"

  • I would absolutely love to see Keeper of the Lost Cities as a movie, but I think a series would be best, where it could be broken up into sections so that they could go more in detail and not leave out all the little things that fans love. But if there were to be any adaptation at all it would have to be accurate for me, and probably my fellow fans, to watch any of it.

  • Duude a movie would be awesome. I would love to play one of the characters in it, I think that would be so cool!

  • 5 stars
