So I haven't posted a YA Movie News post in awhile so this is a catch up post. Some of the news you might already know, but it's worth sharing again!:)
-Lionsgate has set a release date for The Hunger Games movie. The movie will hit theaters March 23, 2012. Now we just have to wait for news on the cast! Thanks to Entertainment Weekly for the news.
-Emma Watson and Logan Lerman are in talks to star in the movie adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. The author wrote the script and will also direct.
-Nickelodeon has pilot in the works based on the upcoming Alloy series (Sept 2011) How to Rock Braces and Glasses. The series is about a popular girl who gets braces and glasses and her popularity status is in trouble, but she finds happiness with music. The pilot is starring Cymphonique, Master P's daughter.
-ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars has been renewed for a second season, which will air this summer.
-Disney Channel has a new original movie called Lemonade Mouth that will premire April 15. The movie is based on the book of the same name by Mark Peter Huges and is about five teens who form a band.
-It's not YA, but older YA readers might be watching HBO's new series Game of Thrones, based on the George R.R. Martin series. The series will debut April 17.
-There's also a new Camelot series on Starz out in April as well. And Merlin is doing well on SyFy (my teens were telling me how much they loved that show). I'm hoping this means a rise of epic fantasy TV shows??
-I've got some I Am Number Four photos to share! My teens are so excited for this movie!
