The film option for Ugly Love has recently reverted back to me and at this point, there is no current production in the works for this novel. I know a lot of you have been anticipating this film just as much as I have. Unfortunately, it takes a lot more than just want for a film to be successful in each step of the creative process. The producers have been very enthusiastic about this project from the very beginning and I appreciate everything they have done to try and make it happen. This just wasn’t the right time for Ugly Love but I have hope that it will happen in the future.
When I signed the contract for the option agreement, I signed over all creative control as far as the film rights are concerned. This is standard with most option agreements and excludes me from making financial and creative decisions related to the filming process. I am aware that some of you participated in an indie go-go campaign created by the producers in relation to this project. I have received many questions about this fundraiser. Unfortunately, I am unable to answer them as I am not in any way involved in the financial aspects of the film. It was my understanding (as I was also a contributor) that the donations to the indie gogo campaign were non-refundable, as the fundraiser was created for marketing in hopes it would further their process of getting Ugly Love into production. According to the campaign page, any questions in relation to the campaign can be sent to hackyboxpictures@gmail.com.
Once again, I have no control or access or knowledge about the status of the funds donated to the production company. If I receive information that may be of further help to those who donated, I will happily share that information with you and look forward to doing so.
I can’t tell you what your support has meant during this process. I have learned a lot about film options through my experiences with both Ugly Love and Confess. I appreciate everything the production company has done to try and get this project off the ground. The decision to halt efforts was mine alone. I don’t know if it’s the right decision, but I have to go with my gut.
Please know that I have your best interests at heart, as well as the best interest for my books when I make these decisions. They aren’t always easy and I’m not always right. But I have faith that this decision is the best one for right now.
I have hope that I will be bringing you much better news in the future based on the success of Confess. But for now, I’m very excited and look forward to the many amazing adaptations that are in the works for several of my friends, including Alessandra Torre's Hollywood Dirt and Author Heidi McLaughlin's Forever My Girl. The Bookworm Box plans to hold viewing parties for both of these releases and a lot more in the future, so stay tuned for that.
Love you guys. Thank you for everything. ♥
Colleen Hoover

I hope that we will know when it will happen, but hopefully that it won't take forever..

I had a feeling this was coming since we hadn't really heard any news.

Yeah, felt like something was, or was not happening given how long it was taking.

Just finished watching Confess! It was really good.

Even though there was changed, I enjoyed this incantation of the book. It was true to the book and the story.

Yeah, but the story has been told. Probably best to leave it there.
