Hi Kathy Lueders (AKA klueders),

Thank you for your poll suggestion. It's great to get poll suggestions from new authors. It's also good too see that you provide a list (http://www.imdb.com/list/ls069791384/) which links back to this thread (https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-looking-for-alaska-dream-cast-takumi-hikohit...).

I'm assuming that you have already read this FAQ. If not, I recommend reading it.
FAQ:So You Want to Make an IMDb Poll? Here's How...
Please note: Polls are limited to 35 choices.
 
I noticed that you have four polls related to Looking for Alaska (2019). It may be somewhat premature to run any poll regarding this film, since the film is listed by IMDb as "In Development" and will not be released until 2019. As such, there is limited information available on IMDb about the film. There is more information on IMDb Pro; this service requires a paid subscription. (Note: The 30 day free trial is only available once.)

It appears the film will be based on John Green's novel Looking for Alaska and that you are a fan of the book.

Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . . After. Nothing is ever the same.

Hello,


Thank you for the reply! I made and suggest this list as poll because there are a lot of fans who are waiting for this film adaptation (I am the one) and talking about who should be casted. As you said it might be premature. But It might be too late to took a poll after they are casted and announced. I believe now is precisely the time we are able to take a poll about this. what do you think??


Regards,

Kathy.

Kathy,

Google Trends indicate that interest in Looking for Alaska peaked 15-21 Jun 2014 and has declined since that time.
https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?q=Looking%20for%20Alaska


You've done a good job as a new author in creating your four poll suggestions. Since Miles “Pudge” Halter is the main protagonist in Looking for Alaska, it would be best to focus on that poll suggestion.

You posted your twitter account on your IMDb and Get Satisfaction profile page. As an experiment, you may wish to promote your poll for Miles “Pudge” Halter on social media.
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-looking-for-alaska-dream-cast-miles-pudge-ha...

You may notice that there are social media buttons located in your original posts. Respectfully ask other fans of Looking for Alaska to click the vote button on the page for the Miles “Pudge” Halter.

When we can generate enough interest in your Miles “Pudge” Halter poll suggestion, it may be practical to have this poll go live.

I still, however, believe that it is premature for your poll suggestions to go live. I would happy to be proved wrong.

Wiki: In 2016, John Green announced in a Vlogbrother's video and on social media that the film adaption has once again been shelved indefinitely.

IMDb Pro shows LFA as in development since Jun 25, 2014. Generally, when a film is in development for a long time the chances of the film being made are slim.

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for the update regarding Looking for Alaska (2018). Given the nature of the book, a television mini-series is probably the best adaption of the novel.

I noticed that you updated all four lists within the last two hours. It is clear that you've given a lot of thought to casting the four major characters. Since Miles "Pudge" Halter is the lead character, that poll is the most viable.
