Fifty Shades Of Wool: Film Studios Enter Bidding War Over Next Big, Self-pubbed Novel
With the lengthy list of movies based on high-profile books coming to theaters (The Great Gatsby, The Hobbit, Paddington Bear), here's one that probably flew under your radar: Wool. This novel series—set in a dystopian future where Earth's last inhabitants band together in bunkers—is currently facing a stampede of bidders vying for rights, and as of today, 20th Century Fox looks ready to acquire them.
Never heard of it? While a self-published eBook released last year might not sound impressive, it has received overwhelmingly positive reviews on Amazon and become quite the internet sensation. Some have even described it as "the sci-fi version of Fifty Shades of Grey"—the parallel being drawn for the buzz generated about the book, not the adult content or tedious structure. (One day you will be mine, boring alien lady porn. One day.)
Sadly, I haven't read Wool yet. Does it have what it takes to become the next big thing?
