YA Movie News
-Jace has been cast in The Mortal Instruments movie! Fun fact about Jamie-he's been in both the Harry Potter and Twilight movies and he's engaged to Bonnie Wright aka Ginny Weasley. I think he's becoming a go to actor for books to movies!
-Divergent by Veronica Roth debuted on the New York Times Bestseller list and there's a movie in the works already. The movie recently got a writer attached-Evan Daugherty who has also written the script for the upcoming Snow White and Huntsman. MTV's Hollywood Crush has a wish list of possible Tris actresses. I kind of like their pick of Emma Roberts-mostly because like MTV Hollywood Crush says, she's an avid YA reader and it's about time she got a book to movie role!
-MTV's Hollywood Crush also posted some behind the scenes photos of The Perks of Being a Wallflower starring Emma Watson and Logan Lerman!
-What does everyone think of the rumor that The Hunger Games movies might be split into four? I know it's all about making money and all, but do we really need to split every book series? Some books have the detail, others don't and I'm not sure I could justify two Mockingjay movies, as much as I loved the series!
-Speaking of splitting movies, the trailer for Breaking Dawn: Part 1 was released. Sorry Twilight fans, but I really think this is going to be the most boring movie ever. Wedding, honeymoon then oops-vampire baby. I need more plot and action in my books and movies!
-I do love this Harry Potter featurette though-don't they all look so young?
-And not YA, but I have lots of young readers excited about this movie: Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer
