YA Movie News

Mortal Instruments author Cassandra Clare recently visited with fans in Bryant Park. She mentioned that the film rights for the series have been sold and a movie is in the works. Not related to a movie, but she's also working on a fourth book in the series, City of Fallen Angels, this time told from Simon's point of view. The book will be out March 2011.

First James Frey and a co-writer sell a young adult series to Harper Collins. Now that un-published series has a movie in the works with screenwriters attached and maybe even Michael Bay as the director. The story sounds like Roswell High, which was one of my favorite series in high school, so I might give it a try. Now why can't we get our favorite published books made into movies?

Here's the trailer for Youth In Revolt based on the novel by C.D. Payne. This is an older YA book (it was released in 1995) and the reviews were bad (check out the Amazon link), so I'm a little surprised to see it making it's way to the big screen. Hollywood doesn't make a lot of sense sometimes.


  1. Very cool news about Cassandra Clare's next book. I thought she was moving to a different series. I didn't realize Mortal Instruments had another one to go. I thought that series was fun :) Also, I was obsessed with Roswell in High School. I don't think Frey's book will ever hold a candle to Max and Liz ... but I might have to give it a shot. Love your blot, btw!

  2. I knew there would be a movie for The Mortal Instruments coming out! But my friend was like, nooo, it's too complicated to be made into one. HAH!

  3. I've never read Cassie Clare and I don't know if I ever will, but I know a lot of people like her.

  4. Natalie-
    I know, Max and Liz are the best-noe one can top them!:)

    I need to read the books now, but I think a movie will be cool.

    Andrea-Me either, but I hope to someday!

  5. I have seriously VERY EXCITED about The Mortal Instruments being turned into a movie. And a fourth book!! That series is one of my favorite.

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Wow it's just non-stop with these YA book to movie deals!

  7. Ugh James Frey why won't he go away?
