YA Movie News

The upcoming MG novel, Dark Life which releases May 1, has a movie version in the works with Robert Zemeckis now signed on to direct. Thanks to Cynopsis for the news!

The Smurfs movie has started filming-and check out the cast! My mom wouldn't let me watch The Smurfs as a kid, but with this cast, I think a movie version could be fun.

ABC Family added
Chad Lowe to the cast of Pretty Little Liars as the father of one of the girls and Gina Torres to Huge, as a camp doctor.

Here's the teaser trailer for the movie version of John Marsden's Tomorrow When the War Began. I haven't read the series yet, but my mom recently finished them and said they were great and addicting-she stayed up late to read them!

Tomorrow When The War Began - TEASER TRAILER - Click here for the funniest movie of the week


  1. I spent the summer before 7th grade reading the Tomorrow When the War Began series, and it is addicting! They're fascinating books, but also a bit depressing because the teens are caught in a war zone, and the things they have to do to survive and fight back are terrifying, and sometimes horrifying.

  2. Do you know if TWTWB will be playing in theaters in the US?

  3. TCR-So far, only release dates for Australia and New Zealand have been given. I'll keep you posted-I hope it makes it way here!

  4. I read three in that series before I stopped and recently read the first one again via audiobook. THe movie looks fantastic and I absolutely love the books.

    I just met Kat Falls and she seems excited about Dark Life the movie - it seems to be moving fast - picked up by Disney and already has a producer. Love the book and can't wait to see the movie whenever it comes out.

  5. Kristen-The Dark Life movie is moving very fast! It has all this lined up before the book has even been released. I can't wait to read it!

  6. Yep, I so do need to read Pretty Little Liars. :)
