YA Movie News

I know, I know-late on the movie news, but forgive me OK?:)

-The biggest news this week was that Lenny Kravitz was cast as Cinna in The Hunger Games movie. I'll admit, I pictured Cinna younger, but I'm pretty happy with this choice!

-OK, if this poster doesn't get you incredibly excited about the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 movie, I don't know what will!! The Neville poster is awesome as well: posted a teaser poster for Breaking Dawn: Part 1. Not the most exciting poster, but hey-it's movie news, right?:)

-Summit Entertainment has a director, Matt Reeves, and a writer, Jacob Estes, attached to the adaptation of Kennth Oppel's upcoming YA novel, This Dark Endeavor. The novel is a prequel to Frankenstein. Thanks to Cynopsis Kids for the news!

-MTV is reporting that Lindsey Lohan is up for the lead role in the remake of Stephen King's Carrie.

-MTV also reports that the movie version of Max Brooks book World War Z is set for a summer production start. The film stars Brad Pitt and I'm sure I'll have teens who can't wait for this movie-they're all about zombies now and even though the book isn't YA, it sure is popular with my zombie fan teens!

I am getting so excited about ABC Family's upcoming series The Nine Lives of Chloe King!! Anyone else think the series looks awesome? I need to get ahead and read the books first!!

  1. Wow. I didn't picture Lenny Kravitz in the role. But we'll have to see how he does.
