YA Movie News

Eoin Colfer's Airman is getting a movie adaptation for Disney. Anne Peacock, who was a screenwriter for The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is adapting the book, and Gil Kenan who directed City of Ember, is signed on as director. With the people signed on to this one, I have high hopes for it. Thanks to Cynopsis Kids for the news!

The Pretty Little Liars Series by Sara Shephard is a series I can't keep on my shelves at the library-and now its on its way to the small screen. According to Hollywood Reporter (via MTV), ABC Family is very close to okaying a pilot for the show, with Lucy Hale set to star. My teens would be very excited about this show, so I hope ABC Family approves it!

The Wicked series by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie was picked up by Dreamworks. The first script is being developed from the first two books in the series.

Cirque du Freak hits theaters this weekend-go see it!! And just in time for the movie's release, there's a new iPhone and iPod Touch App called iFreak-it's a free download so make sure you check it out. You can take pictures and transform them into the characters from the movie. I've got it on my phone and I'll be sharing it with my teens at work-I'm sure they'll love it.

  1. I LOVE PRETTY LITTLE LIARS!!!!!!! Hadn't heard this news, so I am excited.

    I wonder who Lucy Hale would play, since there really isn't one main main character in the books.

  2. I haven't read Pretty Little Liars yet but the concept sounds great for a TV show.
