First the books, then the TV series now the…movie franchise?
It could happen.
In a recent interview with Deadline, Pretty Little Liars writer I. Marlene King hinted about the show potentially getting a movie treatment.
“I know that Alloy would love to create a feature franchise with this,” King noted. ”We’ve talked about doing a feature film once the girls get older. But I think it’s definitely the golden age of television for women in the sense that ensemble movies aren’t getting made, but ensemble TV shows are on ABC Family and Lifetime.”
“There was a time when possibly networks weren’t embracing the fact that it is women who are watching television. My niece goes to college at Syracuse, and Monday nights are Pretty Little Liars night. Every dorm room has it on. But teen girls don’t necessarily watch TV live. It’s all iTunes and Hulu. But this show, because it’s a mystery, is becoming destination TV.”
So there you have it. It could happen…someday.
Question is…Do you support or hate a PPL movie?
