YA Movie News

-Margo from The Fourth Musketeer posted about her experience at the Artemis Rocks tour with Eoin Colfer and Artemis Fowl. Tour dates for the Artemis Rocks show have been posted on the Artemis Fowl site, so be sure to check if the tour is coming by you.

-Ivan Reitman has the upcoming YA novel The Kid Table by Andrea Seigel in development as a movie. The book comes out September 14 and is about Ingrid and her cousins who have to sit at the "kid table" at family functions, but when one of them gets promoted to the "adult table" each cousin comes up with a plan to get promoted as well. Thanks to Cynopsis Kids for the news.

-I Am Number Four the book was released on August 3 (read my review) and I Am Number Four fans can participate in games and challenges and win points on the I Am Number Four fan website for a chance to win a trip to the movie's premiere. Thanks to Publisher's Weekly Children's Bookshelf for the news.

-Peter Cameron's YA novel Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You has a movie in the works and starts filming next month. Check out the casting information from Hollywood Reporter. I really love that Hollywood is not just buying up film rights to big name novels, but that a lot of YA books are getting the film treatment.

-Vampire Diaries has a season two trailer up on Entertainment Weekly that sadly I can't embed here-so you'll have to click over to watch it. I'm so behind on that show and I need to catch up!!

-I went and saw Scott Pilgrim last weekend and LOVED it! If you haven't seen it yet, go do so-it's awesome. They really made it a graphic novel come to life so perfectly. If you've seen it, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

-Someone on YALSA-BK posted that they went and saw a screening of Tomorrow When the War Began in Australia and they really enjoyed it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a US release!

That's it for this week! Any other great YA movie news?


  1. I love the casting for Someday This Pain Will be Useful to You. Deborah Ann Woll is so fun to watch.

  2. Vampire diaries is beautiful and amazing. Just saying. Or at least, the second half of season one is.

  3. Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You has been on my TBR list for a while; it's time to take it off the list! I love Deborah Ann Woll, so this movie is extra exciting now :)

  4. HA! This answers my question on your review of I Am Number Four. :)


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