YA Movie News

-Casting rumors for The Hunger Games have been circulating all week, and last night a major rumor spread that Jennifer Lawrence had been offered the role of Katniss. A source at Lionsgate then spoke out and said the rumor was false and no offers had been made. But maybe this means we're close to the end of all the speculation?

-The CW is taking another LJ Smith novel and bringing it to the small screen. The Secret Circle is in development and Britt Robinson and Thomas Dekker have joined the cast.

-Warner Bros. will open a Harry Potter Walking Tour in Spring 2012. Located at Leavesden England the tour will take fans around to see the sets, costumes, and props used in the movies.

-ABC Family has a new slate of shows for Summer, including some book to TV adaptations. The Nine Lives of Chloe King will air on Tuesdays starting June 14. It will follow the second season of Pretty Little Liars. The Lying Game will air on Mondays starting August 15. Thanks to Cynopsis for the news.


  1. I missed the whole Pretty Little Liar thing, but I have read The Lying Game so I am going to try to watch that.

  2. I hope they do announce who they've chosen as Katniss and the rest of the HG cast soon, it feels like it's been forever, haha. And yay, I really like Britt Robinson in Life Unexpected, it'll be interesting to see her in something new. :D

  3. Oh boy... whoever is ultimately chosen to play Katniss will have SO MUCH PRESSURE! Sheesh. I can't wait to finally find out who she'll be!

  4. I do wish they would announce the casting for The Hunger Games already! The time has come to start leaking some details. :)

  5. Thanks for sharing. I really like this Friday feature so I know which shows I should be looking for.

  6. OMG waiting for the Hunger Games casting news is killing me. I'm still really rooting for Hailee Steinfeld, but whoever gets cast I just want to KNOW already!
