In June 2012 Catherine Fisher, author of ‘Incarceron’ posted this on her site:
I’m sorry to have to say that the original film option with Fox 2000 has now expired, without Fox being willing to go into production, so there won’t be an Incarceron film with this studio. However I have begun to write an Incarceron screenplay – a fascinating and challenging task!! And there are possibilities of offering this to other interested parties. I hope all you frustrated people eager for an Incarceron movie can bear to wait a little longer. At the moment the situation might be described as ‘uncertain, but still hopeful.
It seemed that a movie adaptation was highly unlikely, until recently. In March (2013) Catherine posted an update on the movie adaptation of the book:
I’m delighted to be able to tell you that I have signed a new film option for Incarceron and Sapphique with AMBER Entertainments, the producers behind The Golden Compass, the forthcoming Romeo and Juliet and many other great films. A writer has been chosen for the screenplay and I will be getting the opportunity to work very closely with him on its development, which is a wonderful privilege.
No casting decisions have been made yet, so keep those casting suggestions coming.
I have real hopes that this time we will get Finn, Claudia, Attia, Keiro and the Prison itself onto the big screen.
Originally, ‘Twilight’ star Taylor Lautner was attached to play Finn. Now that Incarceron has been picked up by another studio it appears that Lautner is no longer attached to the project.
Who would you like to see as Finn? Let us know in the comments below!
