stands for question, A.
stands for answer.)Q. How do I contact Michael Grant?A.
Michael Grant has a confirmed account on Twitter (which is http://www.twitter.com/thefayz
), a confirmed Facebook (which is http://www.facebook.com/authormichaelgrant
) and his own website http://themichaelgrant.com
. He is an active user of Twitter and Facebook, and does reply to questions as often as he can.Q. Will there be a GONE movie or TV show? A.
Currently, there is no confirmed movie or TV show for GONE in the making. Michael Grant updates his Twitter and Facebook with information such as his meetings with producers interested in creating a movie or TV show and lately there seems to be more of a chance there will be a movie or TV show, but no one has bought the rights of the book to begin one.
To keep updated on GONE movie/TV show news, check out this topic: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=8792Q. I want to be in the GONE movie/TV show! How do I audition?A.
As stated above, the GONE movie/TV show is only in talks currently. Michael Grant hasn't given anyone permission to create a movie/TV show so until he confirms it, there will be no GONE movie or TV show. Which means no auditions at the moment. Even if the movie/TV show gets the green light and is holding casting auditions, we aren't the ones who'll know where or when; you'll have to take the matter up with Michael Grant and/or whichever film studio/TV studio is making the movie.Q. How many GONE books are there going to be?A.
There are six GONE books in the series, five of which are released. The titles are: GONE, HUNGER, LIES, PLAGUE, FEAR and LIGHT.Q. When is LIGHT going to be released?A.
There has not been a confirmed release date for LIGHT, but in the UK copy of FEAR it states LIGHT will be released in 2013.Q. I saw a member here called "MichaelGrant" and another called "JakeMates". Are they actually Michael and Jake?A.
Yes. As of lately they aren't very active here, but they sometimes drop in and post around the site. Michael even has his own part of the site to answer questions. If you want to ask him a question here, go to "Ask Michael..." (viewforum.php?f=23) and post a new topic with your question. If he answers, the topic will be moved to "Answered By Michael..."
