-Last week I mentioned there was a new movie adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time in the works. The film has picked Jeff Stockwell as the screenwriter. Stockwell also adapted Bridge to Terabithia (which I still haven't seen, so you'll have to let me know how close it was to the book). Stockwell also has adaptations of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and Kiki's Delivery Service lined up as well. Thanks to Cynopsis for the news.
-LaVar Burton tweeted last week about a possible return of Reading Rainbow
"You heard it here first... Reading Rainbow 2.0 is in th works! Stay tuned for more info. But, you don't have to..." It really makes me sad that my teens have no idea what Reading Rainbow is, so I'd love to see the show return. Last year Mr. Burton tweeted about a Reading Rainbow for adults idea and I really hope he's still heading in that direction. (Did anyone else practice booktalks for that show like I did?) Thanks to Cynopsis for news.
-Cory Doctorow's novel Little Brother has been optioned by Angryfilms. I have read great reviews about this book and with the rise of dystopian and science fiction, I think a movie will do really well. Thanks to Shelf Awareness for the news.
-The official opening date for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be June 18th. I wish I could go opening weekend! Anyone planning on going? Do you think it will be great or not worth it?
-How to Train Your Dragon opens this weekend and so far the reviews have been very positive. Amazingly, the book's hold list at my library is still pretty small, so maybe I'll get a chance to read the book before I see the movie!
-The trailer for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is out-I'm not sure what I think about it, but I'm still really excited. I hope the movie gets the comics noticed more, because they really are great reads!
-Here's the first look at Pretty Little Liars the TV show, which will premire this summer on ABC Family. I just got the first book in at the library, so I'm hoping to catch up. Thanks to Khy at Frenetic Reader at for sharing this!
