With the release of Passion on June 14th as a follow up to Fallen and Torment Lauren Kate sent out some question and answers for fans which I’ve copied and pasted for anyone who is interested:
How many Fallen books are you writing? What’s the publishing plan for the series? When is the next book coming out?
Fallen is the first book in the four-book series—though Passion (the third book) will explain many of the things that have happened before the narrative of Fallen began. For those of you worried about the cliffhanger at the end of Torment—don’t! Passion picks up right where Torment left off. It’s told from both Luce and Daniel’s points of view and is going to be SO COOL. The final book, which I’m working on now is called Rapture. It brings back all the characters we’ve met over the course of the series and ends with a stunning climax.
Here’s the publication schedule for the final two books: Passion in the June 14, 2011, and a final book, Rapture, in the spring of 2012.
What do you have planned after the Fallen series is complete?
Something cool. Stay tuned…
Will there be a movie?
The film rights for all four books were optioned by Disney/Mayhem Productions in December of last year. Mayhem is Disney edgier production company, for anyone who has concerns about Disney being purely for younger kids. I got to have lunch with the Disney people and they seem really excited about getting the movie going. I don’t have any new information yet, but hopefully there is more to come! I will keep you posted on my blog. For those who asked, I love Lucy Hale for Luce, Liam Hemsworth for Daniel, and Emma Stone for Arriane.
She went on to say that she thinks Ed Westwick would make a great Cam. I could not disagree more. He would be awful casting! Just not what Cam is in my mind. And as much as I like Emma Stone, I really don’t see her as Arianne…
