Patrick has an update for us! He now has a co-writer, Shannon who the update is also from. He has some questions, so please respond in the comments. From Patrick:
I know its been a long while but progress on the treatment/Percy Jackson project is going tremendously well! I now have a co-writer, and Shannon and I have a clear vision of the direction the treatment will take. We have come up with a draft that fans should be very satisfied with, as it does fix the problems from the first two movies while also keeping true to the books, yet making the movie its own thing.
We were wondering if the fans might be able to help us by answering the following questions. Keep in mind that we cannot contradict the continuity already established from these movies, otherwise this project serves no point. You also have to think how things would work in cinematic form that may be a bit different from how it works in the books.
1. Which scenes/elements from the books do you really want/feel should be in the movie? Are there any that you can do without?
2. Is there anything from the first two movies that truly bothers you, that you would like for us to try and address in some way? i.e. The change in Annabeth’s personality from movie one to two.
3. Is there anything that was cut from the first two movies that you would like for us to try and put back in to this movie?
4. If the issues with book loyalty were addressed as much as possible, would you be willing to give the film franchise another chance?
Please note that your suggestion may not make it into the finished product.
