  1. Congratulations!
    I will have to get around to reading the book before the film gets made. It’s there, on my iPhone. Waiting to be read. Now all I need is time.

  2. Congrats, Cory!

  3. Awesome! Very well deserved – the book is so very good. :0)

  4. Have any of your other stories been optioned?

    I would love to see an adaptation of Eastern Standard Tribe and Down and Out

  5. That’s great! I’ve been hoping it’d get picked up and made into a film! And it’s awesome that you’re a consultant too – hopefully it won’t deviate too far away from the book!

    Congratulations, dude! :)

  6. OMG If Little Brother became a movie, I would buy tickets to watch it 3 times in a row, and buy 5 copies of the DVD (or Bluray, or even DRM-free Digital Download) just because Little Brother is so awesome.
    The book inspired me (a High School student with a paranoid side) and it introduced me to Linux, PGP, and every other amazing stuff in the book.

  9. Well done.

    Hopefully, unlike both of the films you credit him with, the finished movie will share more than just a title with your original written word.

    : )

  10. …and I thought the play was cool.

    That’s fantastic news, Cory. Well done.

    Accompanying that somewhat sombre congratulations are a large amount of “Weeeee!!!! That’s completely insanely brilliant!!! WOW!” type noises, obviously.

    Comment by Cait — June 18, 2009 @ 1:49 am

  11. Wow! Looks like you’re really starting to reap the fruits of many years of hard work. Very much deserved and big congratulations. I’ll be rooting for this movie to get made.

  13. Congratulations!

    Personally i would love to see your works as films, i would prefer in an animated medium (especially “someone comes to town, someone leaves town”) But in the case of Little Brother real actors could suit better due to the realistic and worrying theme it exposes.

    Please continue to enrich the world with your works.

  14. Congratulations. I hope the movie gets made, because it would be fun to see Little Brother on screen!

    Little Brother was my favorite book of 2008, and I think it would make a good movie, too.

    Comment by John Markos O'Neill — June 18, 2009 @ 7:04 am

  15. I hope that if a film gets made it gets distributed witout DRM. I realise, however, that you have basically no say in that. Unfortunate.

    Comment by Stephen Paul Weber — June 18, 2009 @ 7:56 am

  16. Whould the movie be licenced the same way? Just wondering.

    Congrats! Well deserved. Hopefully it’ll happen. I’m crossing my fingers.

  17. As I said elsewhere, this is outstanding, Cory. I don’t generally keep copies of movies I’ve seen, but I’d probably keep this one (well, fingers crossed that it doesn’t end up being poopy. But with you consulting, the chances of that go way down!)

    Comment by Dave Laderoute — June 18, 2009 @ 8:54 am

  18. I’m sure the financial end doesn’t hurt either. Getting optioned for his first novel is what allowed Richard Morgan to start writing full-time.

    Comment by Al Billings — June 18, 2009 @ 8:55 am

  19. As I’ve said elsewhere, well done and congrats! I don’t keep copies of movies, generally, but I’d keep this one on my shelf (well, assuming it doesn’t end up being poopy. But, with you consulting, the chances of that are greatly diminished!)

    Comment by Dave Laderoute — June 18, 2009 @ 8:57 am

  20. Congratulations! Look forward to the film materializing – just wonderful news!

    Comment by Lee Herman — June 18, 2009 @ 9:37 am

  21. Congratulations, Cory! I would love to see it on the big screen. Or little screen. Any size will do, really.

    Comment by Jeremiah Tolbert — June 18, 2009 @ 9:45 am

  22. Congratulations Cory, Little Brother would work very well as a movie.

  30. This is fantastic news and I really hope the film is made. I don’t buy too many DVDs (yum, libraries), but this is one I definitely would keep to accompany the book on my shelf.

    I’m not really a fan of sci-fi, but I can’t avoid the realism of your books. When I read, I can’t stop seeing myself in the shoes of your characters. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience!

    @Zen Stealth
    Awesome to see other teenagers reading the book. I could relate to the book and its characters in such a personal way like never before. I’m attached to Little Brother.

    Comment by Dara Adib — June 19, 2009 @ 8:12 pm

  31. On the technical end, I hope there will be a way to watch the movie’s DVD on my computer without breaking the law (nasty law that DMCA is for us freedom-lovers). I shouldn’t be jumping so fast, but hey, might as well ask.

    Comment by Dara Adib — June 19, 2009 @ 8:16 pm

  32. Wow, that’s pretty awesome, congraulations!

    I really hope Little Brother hits the big screen-

    Comment by Moosehp — June 21, 2009 @ 7:00 pm

  33. You bet! I will SO go and watch and buy the DVD and Blue ray and everything.
    I am reading Little Brother *right now* and can’t concentrate in anything else (I take it to the bathroom at work and these guys are finding it strange that I spend so long in the loo).
    Thank you so much for your work, it opened a new world to me.
    :) Congrats

  39. Congrats! I love the book and I know that it’ll be a great movie. This may come off pervy, but please include everything having to do with Ange. I’ve fallen in love with that character and I wish I could meet someone like her. PLEASE make sure she’s in the movie, including the more adult part of the book that includes her. ;)
