YA Movie News
I love these new photos of Katniss and Peeta-makes me so excited for the movie! What do you think??
-Big news this week about The Hunger Games movie franchise. Lionsgate greenlit the sequel, Catching Fire, and set the release date for November 22, 2013. MTV's Hollywood Crush has some casting suggestions up for Finnick-I like their ideas, but I think the choices are too young.
-Entertainment Weekly has some teaser photos of Breaking Dawn: Part One. What do you think?
-We already had a movie version of The Nanny Diaries, but now it looks like we might get a TV one as well, with Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino writing the script. I think this could work well as a TV show, so I'd like to see it take off.
-There are two movies featuring Snow White and we got a glimpse of the title characters in each recently. I think I'm more a fan of the Snow White featuring Lilly Collins-mainly because I'm not sure I can buy Snow White as a kick butt warrior woman-or Kristen Stewart as Snow White. Which one do you like best?
