Scythe Movie

Scythe MovieThere’s a movie adaptation of Scythe ahead of us. Yep, the science-fiction young adult novel written by Neal Shusterman is going to be adapted into a feature film by Universal Pictures. Scriptwriters Josh Campbell and Matt Stuecken (who wrote the script of 10 Cloverfield Lane) have been hired to pen a screenplay.

Plot synopsis:
“A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.
Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.”

Here’s a trailer for the book:

Let’s the hope the film adaptation will be faithful to the novel it’s based on. Who you you think could play Citra and Rowan?

There’s no official release date yet.

Stay tuned with us for more details about the movie Scythe.

    Rowan could be Dylan O’Brien from maze runner he shows a lot of love and compassion in that movie but in America Assassin he shows the ruthlessness that Rowan has towards the end of the book

    Citra could be Daisy Ridley she shows really good empathy towards people in Star Wars and I think she could carry a really good michy attitudelike citra does in the beginning of the book

    I think Zoe Kravitz would make a great Citra (Christina from “Divergent”)
    Or Vanessa Hudgens.
    Maybe they are a bit old for the role (both nearly 30), but it’s not uncommon that teenage characters are played by much older actors.

    For Rowan I’d love Brenton Thwaites. He was great in “The Giver”. He’s already in his late 20s, too, though.

    I have a little clue because Citra is a common name in Indonesia or India so she can’t be cast as a sweet white girl with blonde hair. I’ve pictured her as a brunette with face as strong and sassy as her character this whole time:D and Rowan, I agree some people here mentioned Dylan O’Brien
