Bad News for DELIRIUM Fans…

Delirium

If anyone was looking forward to the DELIRIUM TV series, I hate to break it to you, but Fox nixed the pilot.  According to EW.com:

DELIRIUM (Fox)
Pitch: Based on bestselling trilogy about a world where love is deemed illegal and is able to be eradicated with a special procedure. With 95 days to go until her scheduled treatment, Lena Holoway (Emma Roberts) does the unthinkable: She falls in love.
Why It Should Have Worked: Big online following; has that Hunger Games vibe.
Why It Didn’t: Deemed “too young” for Fox’s audience. I know — Fox could have concluded that from reading the book and saved everybody the trouble. But there’s a difference between being youthful on paper and the resulting pilot feeling too young.

 

FINALLY! Big news for the adaptation of Lauren Oliver’s DELIRIUM

DeliriumWe’ve been anxiously waiting for the teeniest, slightest kernel of news on a Delirium movie adaptation for what seems like ages.

Unfortunately, it seems there is some sad news for fans who are eagerly awaiting the development of a Delirium movie… It does not appear we will see a movie anytime soon. Fox, who optioned the popular book series for film, has decided a movie may not be the best way to go with the series.

HOWEVER! Oliver informed her fans on her blog that Fox decided instead of adapting Delirium for the big screen, it would be much better suited to becoming a TV SERIES!

Here’s the official word straight from Lauren Oliver’s blog:

The deal is that Fox, which initially optioned the books for film, decided that due to the complexity of all the side plots and characters, the Delirium series might be better suited for TV, as we’d have a chance to explore all of those elements.

There’s certainly a long way to go before we will actually see it become a series, but Fox has ordered a pilot (you can read that announcement here) based on the trilogy. Of course, there’s still lots scripting and casting to go through as well, so it won’t be immediate. But hopefully, now that a pilot has been ordered, we’ll see things start to develop soon.
