YA Movie News

The CW is all about turning teen novels into TV series. The network has ordered a pilot for a series based on the YA book Betwixt by Tara Bray Smith. The story revolves around three teen changlings who have to save humans from evil. Thanks to Cynopsis for the news.

A movie version of Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin looks like it might be happening soon. According to Variety, Ginnifer Goodwin is in talks to star in the main role. It's adult novel and I read and reviewed it last year. I think it would make a great movie, so I hope this works out!

The BBC show Merlin will be aired on SyFy starting in April. I remember when this aired on NBC over the summer and while I liked it, but I wasn't sure if it was something I really loved and wanted to keep watching. But after reading Liyana's rave reviews for Merlin, I'm willing to give in another chance! Thanks to Hollywood Reporter for the link.

That's all I've got-anyone else have exciting YA Movie News?

  1. I didn't like Betwixt that much so I'll pass on that series. Between the CW and ABC Family, there are all kinds of YA books going to TV!

    We need your help today to save the life of Martin Grossman who is set to be executed on February 16th. We are only advocating that he not get the death penalty at this time. We are asking that the Governor take the time to hold a proper clemency hearing to determine if the Death Penalty is really appropriate in this case. This may not be easy for you to go out of your way to try and save the life of someone who took someone else’s life but we must do what is just and right and what the Bible teaches us is correct.

  5. Thanks for the information about Merlin. I wasn't blown away by it, when I watched it over the summer either. But, all the great reviews have got me interested.
