The news has been disappointing lately for fans of YA dystopian novels, at least when it comes to TV adaptations. When it comes to the big screen, however, the news is much better. Four bestsellers hit movie theaters in 2014.
- Divergent (Veronica Roth): March 21
- The Giver (Lois Lowry): August 15
- The Maze Runner (James Dashner): September 19
- Mockingjay Part 1 (Suzanne Collins): November 21
There are sequels to come, and an adaptation of Joelle Charbonneau’s The Testing is also in the works for 2015, so dystopian fans should be in good shape for a while.
Have you heard of any other YA dystopian novels being turned into a movie?
