YA Movie News

-The biggest movie news this week is that the Entertainment Weekly issue out this weekend features Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss on the cover. I think she looks great and exactly like I pictured Katniss! What do you think?

I also love this interview with Jennifer about the movies-I think she's going to do a fantastic job!

-Shelf Awareness reports that R.L. Stine's latest book, It's the First Day of School...Forever has been optioned as a movie. Goosebumps books and DVDs check out constantly at my library, so I'd love to have more to add to the collection!!

-A movie version of Scholastic's popular 39 Clues series is in the works, with Stephen Spielburg as a producer and Brett Ratner directing. Stephen Spielburg also has a couple of other book to movies coming this year with War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin

-Cynopsis Kids reports that there was a bidding war over the rights to an upcoming YA fantasy novel, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs. The book will release on June 7 and I'll keep you posted on any movie news!

-TV networks released their Fall lineups this week, with The CW adding The Secret Circle, a series about a group of witches, based on the novels by L.J. Smith.

-YPulse has a great roundup of possible shows with teen appeal that are coming this Fall.

-And don't forget about Pretty Little Liars and The Nine Lives of Chloe King coming to ABC Family on June 14!


  1. Did you also read the article in the book review section about all of the YA novels being optioned for movies? It included Divergent, Incarceron, Earthseed, Delirium & Before I Fall and City of Bones (and I'm sure I forgot a few!)

  2. i'm so exicted about about katniss, so excited. know i have to read 39 clues, i started it awhile ago but never really got into it, but i love speilburg, so that's happening.

  3. Jennifer Lawrence was wonderful in "Winter's Bone", she'll make a great Katniss.
