The rumor mill has been running rampant. The word on the street, is that D.J. Molles, famed zombie author, sold the rights to The Remaining series in order to make a movie.
D.J. Molles stepped in on his Facebook page to crush the rumors:
Let me take, a quick moment to address the “movie thing”…
There is a movie entitled The Remaining. It is in no way, shape, or form related to my books. If it is some Hollywoodite’s attempt to rip me off, then I think it is a poor one. I am not a movie critic, but I will simply say that I am not worried about this movie taking anything away from my series while it languishes in the dark corners of Redbox machines for a few months and then is forgotten.

The young group is desperately scrambling for refuge and self-preservation while an enemy they never knew existed unleashes its wrath against those remaining alive. They must understand what is happening around them and why and find a way to survive together in a new world of death and destruction. Read more…
