About Me

Hi! I'm Becca Fitzpatrick, the author of the internationally bestselling HUSH, HUSH saga. When not writing, I'm most likely running, prowling sale racks for shoes (stilettos, please!), or enjoying one of life's many little indulgences: Ice cream, Veronica Mars, losing myself in a book, painting my toenails, or simply daydreaming. I do my best to update this blog as frequently as possible with news on upcoming events, tips for writers, and all things pertaining to my books.

HUSH, HUSH Movie News


Hi guys,

I want to take a moment to thank each of you for your amazing support for the Hush, Hush movie. Your love and passion for this project are humbling! With that said, I have some movie news to share. Unfortunately it may not be the news you've been waiting to hear. I have decided that now is not the right time to move forward with the Hush, Hush movie and have not renewed the movie option with LD Entertainment. I know many of you will be disappointed by this. But I hope that you trust me to make the right decision for Nora and Patch. I'm not saying the movie will never happen, but it won’t be moving forward at this time.

Thanks again,
Becca

Don't worry :) It's better to wait more for a better movie with the best cast than making the movie fast.

You have our support!!!

I'm from Norway, just saying, haha! But I would rater wait for a good movie that's thought through than a movie made in a hurry, we'll all wait for as lond as it take Rebecca! :)

I would rather have them not make it than to have them destroy it like they did with Beautiful Creatures or The Mortal Instruments

Dreamer Nora said...

I'm a huge fan of the book but I don't want it to be film. The characters will never be the same as the book. I don't think anyone in the world can replace the real Patch & Nora. And Vee. And Scott. Whatever. So I didn't get upset at all, I can even say that it's good news to me.

Kristen Brown said...

Exactly my thoughts

JordanStephanie said...

Hush, Hush will always be my favorite novel/series. I'm really glad you are giving it so much consideration. If the movie would not be done perfectly, it isn't worth it. Nora and Patch are absolutely amazing as is in their stories.

CrislyDC said...

We're happy that u made that decision :D

Es muy triste pero se entiende (: Becca eres la mejor gracias por una gran saga

Jessica Freeman Harper said...

Love all the books the movie will be great!!!

Al said...

Agreed!

stephanie said...

It's sad but it's all good :-) great things take time ;-) good luck 👍👍👍

Al said...

I completely agree. I think I stand with many people on saying we want the film to be as magical as the books. 😄 (besides this gives me a chance to audition as Nora 😝) but seriously I think your choice is the right one.

Verônica Farias said...

Hi Becca. I'm from Brazil, so I'm a distant fan but everytime I can, I come here to read all your posts. This in particular make me a little sad, but I know that is your decision and I agreed with that. You know what is the best for the characters and we, that are fans of the story and you, have to respect and wait for the best movie ever that gonna came. So, thank you for always think about our opinion and trying do the best always.

hbhoang said...

I couldn't agree more with other commenters that I would much prefer no movie at all to one that is a disappointment and disgrace to the heart and soul of the book. I have been absolutely shocked by some of my favorite novels being destroyed in film. If it isn't going to stand up on its own legs as a movie, then you're definitely making the right call to wait.

Andrea Hernandez Baeza said...

I can be your Nora hahaha *-*
Well, we can understand you. I prefer wait than the adapt destroy the story like TMI or Beautiful Creatures... Take your time Becca, thanks for all and Spain is waiting your visit!! :*

Karolina Pająk said...

I'll waiting ;)

ashbunnii said...

I agree as well that is one off the scary things about your favorite book becoming a movie.....the true fans of your books will understand and stand behind you 100%....

Hushhush Cipriano said...

Is it because you don't want the movie made, or because you haven't gotten the right characters or script yet and you're waiting for the perfect time?
I hope there is one at all; don't want the hush hush experience to end since the series is finished. :|

rebeka morin said...

No worries Becca you're all good with making this choice. All in good time.

-A said...

it's okay, the more we wait the movie is better. Love you soo much <3 <3

Gabriela Lara Fierro said...

Woah!, I don't waited this, but is better wait by the movie. Because your idea, that I think that you have, is wait by new actors, yet not there nobody that can interpret and resembling to Patch & Nora like you want, and like are in the book. This is sad, but you have our support, and to wait by new and good actors for Patch and Nora!.

Ana Disaster said...

I'm a little bit disappointed because i really love the books and can't wait for the movie and especially the time before with all the cast news and pictures. But i really admire your decision, because you really want to have a say and the movie to get as good as possible. Moreover here in Germany the books aren't as popular as they should in my opinion, so maybe in one year there will be so much more fans.

Brooke Latu said...

I agree that you made the right choice. This is still my favorite of any saga I've read, and the actors should be just right. I honestly couldn't pick anyone more perfect for Patch then Ian Somerhalder. Hopefully it works out perfectly.

Alex Del Castillo said...

Well its better to have a god movie rather than one made in hurry, I will wait until you think its the right time Becca, also I want to say thanks you for creating such a great saga for me it was an epic adventure I lived next to Nora and Pach, I always will have hush hush in my heart.

Kat Dufrene said...

As you can see, we are all emotionally invested in the world you created for Hush, Hush. You have our loyalty and support in your decisions-- not that you need anything from us. Thank you for sharing this news with us. Be blessed!

Carolina said...

Estoy completamente contenta de que hagan una película de Hush Hush pero, con toda mi honestidad, recomiendo que elijan MUY BIEN a Nora y en especial a Patch porque algunas veces terminan decepcionando a los lectores ya que no se lo imaginaban así, no eran lo que esperaban, etc.
¡ESTOY ESPERANDO QUE SALGA LA PELÍCULA DESDE HACE MUCHO TIEMPO!
Lastima que vivo un poco lejos y la película saldrá unos meses después de que estrene mundial-mente :D

Estoy muy orgullosa de que vos seas mi autora favorita y, aunque no halla ni una mínima posibilidad de conocerte, siempre te adorare.

Saludos desde Argentina.

Maíra Maciel said...

I'm so disappointed! I've been waiting for this movie for a long time ....

Nicole carrasco said...

patch will, so perfect in our imagination <3

Vanessa Vendrasco said...

Im actually happy for the wait, sometimes movies ruin our perception of the books and i LOVED Hush Hush. A movie would be cool but if it doesnt happen, im indifferent :)

ange luongo said...

I'm agree with you..
I would like to see a movie, but the history could be ruined, so I keep it for myself and the readers :)

ange luongo said...

Sounds good your decision Becca ..Hush , Hush is my favorite saga so far and I really would not like that happens the same like with the TFIOS movie , no one read the book and do not really understand how beautiful it is to read and imagine the characters..In addition each has in his imagination to Patch and all the characters, and if on the movie are choosen the wrong actors it could be ruined..I'm very jealous of my stories , and I would like to see a movie , but I prefer to save Patch for myself and those who share the same feelings when I read the saga..

Maah Volverde said...

I'm so disappointed!I love Patch!
:'( I'm said ....

Sammi Lyons said...

I am actually happy to hear that the movie isn't going forward right now. I AM Nora, and I need to audition for the movie. I have always felt that I am Nora!

Dana Dacanay said...

Nooooooooo!!! not happy with this decision at all!!!!!!! 😩😫😭😱😠😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

Kayla Faubus said...

I appreciate that movie news. But do hope that you decide to have the movie made soon. The book to movie adaption is going to be cooling down & that would be a perfect time to bring something new & big to the screen. I'm such a fan of this series, & I consider it one of the best love stories I've ever read. So I hope I can see this on the big screen one day sooner then later.

Massiel Veloz said...

Hi, Becca. I'm from Dominican Republic.

Don't worry about this, i'll always support you, I'm so happy for this new cause' i don't want people fuck it the movie with the book, and also the characters.

But any choise, I'll always support you.
Love your books Becca, can't wait to read it all.

Marisa Rogers said...

If you do let someone make it into a movie, please please please don't let them ruin it. I have seen so many good books be ruined by terrible casting, changing of the original story line, and terrible acting. Please don't let that happen to these books because I really love them a lot.

Amanda Butcher said...

You know, I'm not upset by this. I might have been a few months ago, but after the atrocity that was the Vampire Academy movie, I can live with this. I hope I never have to see such a mangled adaptation such as that again. :)

Patty Alzamora said...

I am completely disappointed by what you are communicating to us!
I do not understand how you can do that: C, becca but admire you because I do not record! News have come and begin recording in December? that's true and if it is not true, is serving only a miserable desire of many teens that the movie is released: L

Melissa Reyes said...

Sad news :( I understand your decision. Always supporting you <3

Mar Paz said...

I think it's the best! I trust you! Love you from Argentina

Savannah Kettler said...

Though it was disappointing to hear i'm ok with that :) it's better that you're taking your time, unlike most of the others who just rush into movies after their books. I will wait as long as it takes , i am with you all the way on this, your books were great!

Annette Rivera said...

No worries! Good things come to those who wait!😊

Breanna Reinemann said...

I really support your decision. But I DO want a movie made. I really love the Hush, Hush series and I love the relationship between Patch and Nora. I love this series more than Twilight and Harry Potter. Much love Becca and I hope the movie is made someday!

Eliana Saravia said...

Hi Becca! I´m from Argentina and your books mean the world to me, you as a writer is just the heaven, i can´t even describe it with words but i love so much this saga and i want you to know that you have our support and we believe that all the decisions you made are worth it. Much love from here and have a nice life!

hany blanco said...

Hola! Soy de México y gran fan de Hush, Hush.
Te apoyo!
La desición que tomaste fue la mejor, lo bueno siempre tarda en llegar. Y creeme que todos esperaremos por una buena pelicula que no humille la versión del libro.
Saludos y besos!

Galacatta PC Gamer said...

:D It will be well worth the wait when it does happen :) I love this series, my all time favorite top shelf series, thanks for the update Becca :)

Annoymous Hijabi said...

To be honest, I think a TV series would be better than a movie VMD is way better than twilight by far!

Birgitte Eriksen said...

I'm from Norway and I love Hush hush! I really want a movie from Hush hush, but don't worry. It's better to wait than it won't be nothing :)

A question: Have you ever thought that if it becomes a movie, must the girl who plays Nora be American, or can she be from another country, like Norway? Of course she can speak English.

emma leahs said...

Becca we are always behind you, if you think this is for the best then we totally agree with you. Hush,hush is your book, you know them better then any one, if it wasn't the right time then it just isn't the right time.
we hope that one day (soon) you will have the right team behind you and your feel ready to move forward.
It's always better to be safe then sorry.
all my love x

Valery Garcia said...

When you're ready don't worry!
Love you :3

SoccerGurl#19 said...

A movie would've been nice, but I think it's even nicer for us to keep imagining Patch and Nora's story in our own ways. I agree with Becca Fitzpatrick and I couldn't agree more with her choice.

Lucía Morales said...

It's okay. Hush Hush is better than a movie. And Patch is more perfect in my imagination :)
I love you, Becca. I love your work. I will never forget the book, is my fav book and you're my favorite author all time.

Becca Fitzpatrick said...

Thanks, everyone, for your support and kind words. It was hard to make this announcement - I've been putting it off for weeks. I didn't want to disappoint you. I appreciate your support and faith in me so very much. xo Becca

Kaya Harber said...

While I'm sure we would love to see Hush Hush made into a movie we want it to be the book we read and loved, nothing less. Thank you for being honest with us and protecting what we all love x

Adr5i said...

I don't care if I have to wait a few years, because I just wanna have a perfect Patch Cipriano, a perfect Nora Grey and in general, a perfect cast. This movie will not be the same if we don't have a perfect writing. So, I'll wait. But, I'm so excited for watch this movie on the big screen. THANKS BECCA FOR THIS INCREDIBLE SAGA! ARE THE MOST AMAZING BOOKS I EVER READ. I JUST WANNA SAY THANKS.
Lot of love,
your numer one fan.

Postscript: with your writing, you made me want to be a writer on conditions. You don't know how amazing you are.

yecenia vargas said...

I'm so glad your holding off on the movie . Your book series is amazing and I have read it over ten times since I was freshman and have since graduating this year . I hope you continue to write books like this!

kenia caraveo dominguez said...

Nia Jones said...

Samantha Iapalucci said...

I know I'm about a year late on this as it seems.
I had just finish reading all of the books and I'm so sad it has ended and looking forward to a movie when you do make a movie.

Kot&Bombel w Australii said...

Thats a very sad news... :( still will be waiting. Hopefuly you will change your mind soon, I think the whole story would make an amazing movie!

Monique Spulak said...

Lorin Picard said...

Well, the movie will be well worth the wait. We should be grateful there is even going to be a movie. I really look forward to it. Thankyou so much Becca Fitzpatrick! You are an inspiration to anyone and everyone who reads your books.

Jazmynn Padhal said...

Omg I just found your books and I've devoured them. I'm on the fourth and final book. I can't wait til you decide to make the movie! Hopefully you find a perfect Patch. A guy of his description will definitely be a challenge to find.

Maja db said...

I hope you changed your mind.. I have finished the 4th book, i love them all. I hope there is still coming a movie..

Maja db said...

I hope you changed your mind.. I'm just finished with the 4th book and i love them all ! I hope there's coming a movie or serie about them..
