YA Movie News

-A movie version of tween book 100 Cupboards by N.D. Wilson is in the works. The news from Shelf Awareness mentioned that all three books in the series were in the works-I'm not sure if the movie would cover all three books or would be three movies. I'll keep you posted!

-The movie version of Hugo Cabret has added two more cast members:
Emily Mortimer and Michael Stuhlbarg. The movie is currently filming and will be released December 2011.

-This news isn't book related but might be interesting for other teen librarians. TeenNick is launching a special called The Nightlife, which features specials hosted by Nick Cannon. The shows will feature fashion, entertainment news, celebrity guests and interviews, music and dance performances. The specials will air on Thursday evenings in August.

-Suzanne Collins has finished writing the screenplay for The Hunger Games. I hope the movie gets picked up and made soon-I want the movie now!!

-Check out this video for the upcoming movie (and book) I Am Number Four.

And more I Am Number Four news from MTV-they are signed on for six movies to go with the six books, so this could be the next big franchise!


  1. Six movies with Alex Pettyfer?
    (I'm 16. Don't judge me. Please.)
    And I'm not going to type out the happiness that I get from the idea of a Hunger Games movie. But it is quite large.

  2. Right there with you on the Hunger Games movie needing to be out post haste! I bet, given the content of the book, it's difficult to plot and write for the movies and still get a PG-13 rating (which I imagine they'll want/need).

    Here's to hoping soon!

  3. I am so, so excited for I Am Number Four!!! And Alex Pettyfer sure doesn't hurt either ;)

  4. Alex Pettyfer?? I'm so there :) The books look great, too. I'll definitely read them as soon as I can.

  5. hey. I'm a big natalie lloyd fan, so I've heard a lot about you. I decided to check out your blog and I love it! I'll totally be coming back. I'm a hopeless bibliophile...
    I'm also thrilled to find that Hgo Cabret is going to be a sister loves this book and now I'll really have to get my hands on it.

  6. I love this news about The Hunger Games. My students have been asking me repeatedly about movie updates, so I read the LA Times article and posted it on my blog for them. The movie will be hard to make since it's almost completely centered on Katniss's thoughts, but I'm sure it will still be great :)


I love hearing from other readers! Share your thoughts and chime in!
