Very possible! For sure we can see a lot additional scenes. Hope it can be filmed soon.

If they change the storyline a little, possibly.

Maybe with some work to adapt it to the cinema, it could be done.

I think it’s a great idea. Sci fi fans are definitely going to enjoy the movie.

Could work, but I don't see why they should translate it into movie form. It works just fine the way it is.

I feel the explicit scenes might have people comparing it to Fifty Shades if it has a cinematic release. I think it's more suited to a TV series as they can flesh out the plot and air it late at night and on age restricted channels to avoid minors accidentally watching it.

Due the vast amount of content and scenes, I feel that a TV series would do it better justice. A Movie wouldn't leave enough time to tell the story like it's supposed to be told.

I don't think so mostly because i barely understood the plot of the story.

If it was vastly reworked? Sure. It could be a tv series. Otherwise, no. I don't think it would work.

My question is: What genre of movie would it fall under? There is not enough science fiction in the story to qualify it in that genre. Maybe erotica or porn? If the screenwriter decided to put all the bisexual sex scenes into the movie. Or maybe just human relationship drama?

It would be difficult to make a movie out of it. Maybe an alternate version of the book, using the same ideas and characters but a bit of a different plot.

I do not think this would work as a film because it mainly has sexual content.

This book is about nonviolence and Jennifer and the SS are all nonviolent. Jennifer and her team developed Zexton ideas into Hardware to complete this mission without violence. I WANT THE NONVIOLENCE TO STANDOUT NOT VIOLENCE.
