Dammit, Powder and Cure stole all the good quips.

So... will this be Lady of the Flies? Eh. I don't have a problem with the story or the gender change-up, but this idea just feels like scraping the bottom of a barrel.

Like you guys said, there isn't much in the way of a Fly fanbase...

I was never a fan of the book but this is just lame.

Believe it or not, that had occurred to me - but sometimes you just have to jump and not look back.

Maybe from another country. Which they won't do.

Maybe it'll be like the Heathers reboot, and they'll make all of the evil girls women of color, in an effort to be inclusive, but then missing the point even more.

Just make it set 25 years ago or something.

Well they are kind of running low on new original ideas so mining classic literature for the upteenth time seems safe enough.

I don't even remember much at all of "Lord of the Flies," honestly. My wife hates the idea of this. Says "Women don't do that stuff. They'd just kill each other."

It's like all the modern remakes of 70s and 80s slasher movies where they have to take cellphones out of the equation. It's almost always either dead batteries or no service, which makes the protagonists look clueless.

You can't have something faithful to the book and change the gender of all the characters, that's an oxymoron. I don't think this is any SJW pandering they likely just want to try something new with the story which is fine and frankly more interesting but don't cal it faithful.

Good book but not a feel good book, never seen any of the films.

The idea of a "Gender Flipped Lord of the Flies" intriguing me, but at what point does it change enough from the source material to go from being the All-Female Lots to a completely unique story, only loosely inspired by LotF?
