Mockingjay.net has all 8-which one is your favorite? I think Effie is mine.
-Maggie Stiefvater's latest novel, The Scorpio Races, is in development as a movie with KatzSmith Productions. KatzSmith is partially owned by Seth Grahme Smith, who wrote Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter and the screenplay for Dark Shadows, so I think he knows fantasy well. With Shiver in development as well, that means two possible Maggie Stiefvater movies in the future!
-Some exciting news from The CW, or what I think I'm going to call "the YA books to TV shows network" :) Unearthly by Cynthia Hand is in development as a TV Show and I'm really hoping it gets made since I really enjoyed the book and I could see this as a great series.
-Dreamworks Animation won the rights to adapt Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants series for the big screen. This series is one that remains popular at my library-there are always kids asking for it and I think a big screen adaptation would be awesome!
-Another forever popular series at my library, Hank the Cowdog, has a movie in development with Odyssey Pictures.
-Movie adaptations of Lawrence Yep's novel, Tiger's Apprentice and Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell's book Far Flug Adventures: Fergus Crane are in development with producer Jane Startz, who has produced many previous books to movies. Thanks to Cynopsis for the news!
-Walking Dead has been renewed for season 3. I've been told by lots of people I need to watch this show!
-If you want to buy Harry Potter on DVD/Blu-Ray, you better hurry! Warner Bros. will stop selling the movies on December 29 and most likely pull a Disney and only release them out of the vault at certain times.
-An Ender's Game movie is looking more likely, with a release date being set of March 15, 2013.
-Anna Carey's novel, Eve, is being developed for a TV series by the producers of The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars.
Trailer time! Two trailers this week: one for Dr. Seuss's The Lorax and another for the English-language version of Miyazaki's film The Secret World of Arrietty, which is based on The Borrowers.
