YA Movie News

Yes, I usually post these on Friday, but I had so much news I couldn't wait to share!!!

-Vanessa Hudgens has been cast in Beastly, based on Alex Flinn's novel. She's not exactly what I pictured, but I'll think she'll do a great job.
Alex Pettyfer, who I know as Alex Rider in the Stormbreaker movie but was also in Wild Child with Emma Roberts, is rumored to be Kyle, the beast character. I just hope they do a good job with this movie!

-Catherine Keener, of The 40-Year-Old Virgin will be playing Percy's mom Sally in the upcoming movie version of The Lightning Thief. I love this casting choice and am getting really excited for the movie!

-A movie version of the novel, The Heartbreakers by Pamela Wells has been optioned and will be renamed Rules of Dating for Teenage Girls. I haven't read this book yet, but it sounds fun!

-And lastly, check out this pic of the wolf pack from New Moon:

Check out USA Today and EW for more info.
