What's the next Hunger Games?

It could be the Chaos Walking trilogy.  It has just been announced that the very offbeat screenwriter and director, Charlie Kaufman writer of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation(DVD ADAPTATION) , and Being John Malkovich (DVD BEING) has signed on to write the first screenplay in the Chaos Walking Trilogy.  The Knife of Never Letting Go is the story of a planet where all the thoughts of men and animals can be head as the Noise.  After a young man named Todd discovers a girl named Viola, his decision to save her leads to the discovery of terrible secrets.  The trilogy eventually leads to all out warfare with the after of a planet in the balance.  You can read my reviews of the third book here.  This series has all the makings of a new Hunger Games.  Love, violence, dystopia, questions about the inhumanity of war and all that other great stuff! 

So check out the trilogy before the movie gets made and everyone and their Aunt Mildred is in line to read it!  And let us know in the comments what YOU think the next YA book series big movie should be based on.
