A movie version of the series Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden has a director. Stuart Beattie, who co-wrote the film Australia, will be directing and the film starts shooting in Australia in September. This news is particually interesting to me since I just came across this series for the first time this week! Yep, the series is older but I'd just never really noticed them before. I had a set on my shelves at work this week and picked them up. I'll be reading them before the movie!
Last week I mentioned the movie version of Wendelin Van Draanen's novel Flipped. Callan McAuliffe and Madeline Carroll will play the leads. Callan is a relative newcomer, but you may recognize Madeline from Swing Vote.
Not much I know, but that's about all I could find for this week-anyone else have great YA movie news?
