  • whoa. that would be cool. i wonder who will be the actors…

    • I LOVE LOVE LLLLLLLLOOO OOOOOVVVV VVVVEEEEEE EEEEE these books! But I’m more of a Keenan fan then Seth. I really just want Seth to be quiet. I am absolutly in LOVEv with Niall. But I also love Irial. And I feel terribly bad for Donia. LOL I got my mom hooked on the books!

    • I love u man, i tots agree. especially with seth should shut his mouth.

  • OMG… can’t wait…starting Fae costume for a midnight show ASAP!!

  • A dream come true! I’d love to be a part of the crew as Special Effects Makeup! Keep me posted please!

    Congratulations!
    A FAN

  • OMG!!!!! I CAN’T WAIT

  • Lucas Till should DEFINITELY be part of the cast. He is a great actor and can portray roles very well. He would be great at the role of Keenan. He has sunlit hair and a perfect glowing tan. Keep him in mind for casting!

  • Totally cast Alex Pettyfer as Keenan 😀
    Make sure Seth is super hot, just like the book. Don’t use any disney actors/actresses though. I don’t like the idea of Lucas Till as Keenan…. he doesn’t fit the character.

  • YAAAY!!!! i love her books!!
    i just hope they don’t srew up da film!!!
    xxxxxxxxxxx

  • I loved the books..i just hope everyone doesnt become obsessed with it like twilight.

  • i cant wait…. i dont think it will become ppl obsessed because their still making twilight movies even tho this is gonna be a better movie

  • xD OMGAWD!!! I can’t wait I love Wicked lovely :3 When I heard about the movie I was up out of my chair in the classroom saying “YES!” I Loooooooove Seth 😀 I hope he as hot and good looking as they said in the book. <33 I also Love Aislinn. <3 shes a good match for Seth. Keep me posted I sooo want to be the one there on opening day when the movie comes out.

  • By far the best news I have ever heard, I absolutely adored the book. Moving onto the second one asap

  • OMG!!! I cant wait for the movie!!! In my mind Seth is like…um…EXTREAMLY MANDO WICKED NICE HOT GOD!! But when does the movie come out??? I cant find the date ANYWHERE!!!!

  • OMG!!! I love the series! If anyone knows anything about open casting calls, I would be very greatful! Please keep me posted!!!

  • OMG!!!!! so excited ^^ 😛 im reading the book and its so good

  • NO! THEY CAN’T DO THIS! Twilight sucks. The Vampire Diaries tv show sucks. The Vampires Assistant sucked. They need to quit ruining great books by turning them into movies. But Edward Scissorhands was a great movie so hopefully that writer will stick close to the book.

  • OMG, OMG i totally love wicked lovely, i adore Seth and Aislinn and i think they are a perfect match. i cant believe they are turning it into a movie i am definitely going to be there when it is first opens!!!!!! keep me posted with the date of the first movie!!!!!!!!!!! i cant WAIT

  • omg when my friend told me to read about about fairies i was like umm ok but its such a good book i love how there is always alove triangle is really good .. abit better then twilight i just hope they can get the characters right!!

  • I saw something on imdb that said Vince Vaughn was tied to a movie ‘Wicked Lovely’. I dont know if its the same one but that would be a little weird.

  • The grandma is by far the most hot person in the book!!! Lol, I’m totally joking! It’s a tie between Sorcha, Niall, and (I can’t even breath thinking about him) SETH!!!! I can’t f-ing wait for the movie….the cast better be the hottest f-ing people on the face of the earth…I hope really hope Aislinn doesn’t go uber-bitch like Bella did in New Moon…Hated that movie! Edwardwasn’t nearly as hot shirtless as I thought he was going to be! He had a REALLY weird nipple, lol!!! I read on Melissa’s site she approved so I’m trying to be as optimistic as I can be….Hope for the best(and the hottest!!!)!!!

  • ok ok ok ok that book is awsome so is ink exchange i just started fragile eternity its awsome SETH is for ash SO I THINK KEENAN SHOULD STAY WITH DONIA I JUST HOPE THEY DON’T MESS UP THE MOVIE THEY SHOULD HAVE LIKE EVERY IMPORTANT DETAIL AND NOT MESS IT UP THIS BOOK DESERVES 5 STARS ! I’M TRYING TO GET PPL TO READ THE BOOK BUT TO SOME PPL TO THEM IT SOUNDS STUPID CUZ IT HAS FAERIES BUT THEY SHOULD NOT JUDGE IT FROM THAT :)

  • Dude, y do they do this to us. they take a good book and turn it into a movie. whatever i hope they stick to the plot (unlike the vampires assistant) and actually keep the book the same and not add more clips than there are. otherwise there would be quite a few angry fans. and melissa marr needs to be a part of the script writing so they don’t jack it up don’t u think.
    niall is cute but it’s a tie between keenan and of course, seth

  • I read wicked lovely, ink exchange and fraglile eternity…. they are amazing!!! I’m looking forward to seeing wicked lovely movie =D

  • Lucas Till would screw the movie up. I want unknowns, sort of like they casted Twilight. ABSOLUTELY NO DISNEY PEOPLE. That counts as screwing it up. Hopefully, it’ll be a great movie. I’ll be really bummed if they mess it up though.

  • i hope they do get unknowns but i hope they dont screw up like the people who casted twilight did

  • sure thats cool but i don’t want them to screw it up and i hope they stick to the books

  • HI

  • OMG! I’ve read all the books and I love em! I hope they get some one REALLY HOT TO PLAY SETH!
    (I heart him) I just hope they don’t screw the movie up like they did Twilight. Ether way, I’ll be at the teater when it comes out!

  • They BETTER pick a HOT emo guy to play Seth…. I’m madly in love with Seth’s character and if they screw it up i will be so pissed.

  • Vince Vaughn is one of the best comedians today, he is also a very good looking guy.~;,

  • I found a link on imdb about vaughn and the film…he isn’t going to be in the film, but his company…wild west productions or something like that is…producing it? Sorry I’m doing this all off memory! It is set to possibly be released in 2012….I can only hope it is sooner:)

  • I am so fucking happy!!! I just finished reading the book, and fell in love with it! OMG I really have to see the movie ^^ 😀

  • Alex Evans should play Seth. Chace Crawford should play Keenan. Jessica Stroup should play Aislinn. Meryl Streep as Grams. Samantha Munro should play Leslie. Kristen Stewart should play Ani. Tom Felton should play Devlin.

  • Awww!!!! I’m so gonna faint. Yaaay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • this is hot and cold, simply because this depiction can be as spot on and spectacular as the Harry Potter series or as wrong and overly glamed as the Eclipse Saga

  • Hey…
    I hope the movie will be in the theatres in germany too… I often have the problem that they are not, and they are hard to find on the internet!!!
    I hope they don’t screw it up…

    • I REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK AND IM THRILLED THAT THEY GONNA MAKE A MOVIE..IN MY PERSPECTIVE I THINK THAT THE CHARACTER SETH SHOULD NOT BE EMO I THINK IT WILL KILL THE MOVIE. IN ADDITION IT WILL IRONIC SINCE THE STEREOTYPE OF EMMOS IS HEARTLESS, UNPASSIONATE, EMOTIONAL, AND SO FORTH. THE CHARACTER SETHS CHARACTERISTICS ARE DESCRIBED OTHERWISE, EVEN THOUGH HES EMO. I THINK IF KEENAN IS DESCRIBED AS HOT THEN SETH SHOULD BE COMPETITION IF AISLINNS CHARACTER HAS A TOUGH TIME STRUGGLING WITH HER MIX EMOTIONS TOWARDS BOTH OF THEM.

  • i adored this book-im sixteen and an aspiring actress…..i wish that there was a chance i could get this role!!! too bad they’re not having open auditions-i would do anything for that :) there’s nothing i love more in the world than acting, its so fun and im actually pretty good at it, but my dad said no cuz they “get into bad things” ah well-hello ivy league college :) LOVE YOU WICKED LOVELY!!! 😉 [emoticons, can’t live w/out em]

    • I so agree, but

      1: I’m an Australian so I couldn’t go to an open audition even if they did have them and;
      2: Probably wouldn’t look the part of any of the characters anyway

      I really would love to be a part of a movie based of such an awesome book… Tell your dad that there are less actors/actresses that get into bad things than the ones who don’t… We just don’t hear about the good ones since that doesn’t make good gossip… Acting is one of my 3 favorite things in life =D

      Oh and for the record, I’m 19 and did perform during my college years, as well as local theatre groups since I was 13 =D

  • All I know is:
    1. I’ll be waiting in the theater in Dark faery getup- first show.
    2. Both Seth and Keenan should be hot. Seth in the eccentric artist way and Keenan in the blonde surfer way.
    3. If Irial’s in the film, I’ll just die. Literally. And if he’s Ian Somerhalder, I’ll die and come back just to die again.^_^
    4. Definitely looking forward to Niall (and Irial). Gancanagh goodness. INK should totally be a sequel when this movie works out.
    5. Wicked Lovely is going to be the best fantasy movie ever made (or franchise)- ever.

    • Oh My GOD! Ian Somerhalder GREAT eye for that guy idk where you found him but hes gorgeous I love you! but I partially disagree I believe he should play the role of Niall.. from my perspective Iri should be a russian black haired silvered eyed 6ft 2 guy may 6ft 3 XD idk robert downey jr with a stern fierce, intimidating thing Irial is just soo needs to be Irial.. The embodiment of nightmares uk scary but tempting

  • Hey guys FYI- after Cowboys and Aliens did so badly at the box office- Universal decided to pull the plug on the wicked lovely project.

    • So is there going to be a movie or not? Ever since the news that Universal opted out of making the movie (August 25, 2011) there hasn’t been any updates. I’m dying to find out if there’s still going to be a Wicked Lovely movie…

  • Ok, uber xitd 4 movie!!!!! Havent cn anything on it yet, u sure its coming?????? And u guys r hoping 4 what every1 else will look like when the movie obviously has to be first book! Which means gram ash seth donia and keenan!!!!!! (others 2 of course!) i am all team seth tho. Keenan needs to stick to donia!!!!!

  • Nope- no movie- and I’m quite glad to hear it. They were going to ruin it…calling seth’s, aislynn’s, and keenan’s relationship a love-triangle. SOOOO glad they aren’t ruining a perfectly good series.

    • Are you positive there’s no possibility for a movie in the future? Where did you hear this? May I please have the link? I have to say I’d be quite disappointed if they didn’t make a film. I was eager to see what the characters and faeries would look like. You have to admit it would be exciting to see the special effects

  • On the universal official website

  • It’s not with Universal Studios but they’re still trying to run it they just haven’t got a studio.
