The Selection: Story

Since this is a movie adaptation, we know it will stick quite closely to the book, with a few changes here and there. Set in a dystopian future, The movie follows the journey of 35 young women as they vie for Prince Maxon’s affections.
For a lucky few, the movie represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to break out of the oppressive social stratification that has long characterized their culture. But being Selected is a nightmare for America Singer.
In order to compete for a crown she doesn’t desire, she must abandon her hidden love for Aspen, a lower caste member.
Then America meets Prince Maxon, and she learns that the future she’s always envisaged may not be as good as the life she’s always dreamt of.

Who is developing The Selection?

Haifaa Al-Mansour, renowned for her works Wadjda, The Perfect Candidate, and Mary Shelley, will direct the Netflix film version of the blockbuster novel The Selection.
Denise Di Novi, best known for Heathers, Ed Wood, James and the Giant Peach, and Little Women, and Divergent franchise’s Pouya Shahbazian will produce the future film. Margaret French-Isaac will serve as executive producer. But now we know that Netflix won’t be making any more movies or TV shows.
A blog post on the website of Keira Cass says that Netflix is not going forward with any projects. Here’s the full sentence:
“Well, friends, it’s time to make it official: Netflix will not be making The Selection Movie. While they will still maintain the film rights for a few more years, there are no longer any plans to produce a film or series.
You all have waited so long, and I wish I could give you better news. I do want to thank you though. Your support and enthusiasm have been amazing, even with a wait that has lasted over a decade, across various attempts to bring The Selection to screens. And I want you to know that there’s nothing more you could have done to make this happen. You were perfect.

Of course, if anything ever changes, I will let you know. For now, there is no Selection film.”
