YA Movie News

-YAY for new Harry Potter photos from Entertainment Weekly!! I think the one with Neville is my favorite.

-I love this article and interview with cast members of Harry Potter. I think Bonnie Wright's favorite moment is so sweet!

-Director Craig Gillespie is attached to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Gillespie director Lars and the Real Girl, which I loved and I love the idea of a PP&Z movie! Thanks Shelf-Awareness for the news!

-Lots of Hunger Games news! Elizabeth Banks is in talks to play Effie, Willow Shields is cast as Prim, Jack Quaid and Leven Rambin are cast as Marvel and Glimmer, and Dayo Okeniyi and Amandla Stenberg as Thresh and Rue. I'm liking all these picks so far!

-HBO's Game of Thrones got picked up for a second season! This is more adult, but I know many YA librarians who love this series, so it's worth mentioning!

-Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev has joined the cast of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The movie already stars Logan Lerman and Emma Watson.

The trailer for The Help was release this week. I still need to read this one!

Have more news? Let me know!


  1. Love the Neville photo too. He's become a man (both book and movie). And the actor is surprisingly good looking too for being a silly looking kid.

    I thought the Help trailer was fabulous.

  2. I love the new Harry Potter pictures. And God, Neville looks so old! When I think of him I see a young little cute boy. Not a tough man!

  3. I can't wait for the Harry Potter movie. And I'm excited that Game of Thrones was picked up for a second season. Maybe it'll bode well for MG and YA high fantasy books.

  4. Did you see the news about Katniss & Prim's mom being cast? It was announced in Hollywood Reporter today. I'm so glad Game of Thrones is already picked up, it's fantastic.

  5. Oh, my god, I'm so excited for Perks of A Wallflower now, and I haven't even read the book. I should probably get on that...
