YA Movie News

-A new poster for The Hunger Games was revealed during an online puzzle hunt. I really like it! What do you think?

-Another YA book to movie I'm looking forward to! Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone is also getting a big screen adaptation! Universal bought the film rights and I really hope this one happens-don't you want to see that book come to life?

-Meg Rosoff's Printz Award Winner, How I Live Now, has been optioned for a big screen adaptation. Saorise Ronan is in talks to star. How I Live Now is one of my favorite Printz winners and I'd love to see it on the big screen! Thanks to Cynopsis Kids for the news.

-Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellows is working on a musical version of The Wind in the Willows.

-In other musical news, a musical adaptation of Because of Winn-Dixie is in the works with Duncan Sheik signed on to write the music. I think this is a great idea!

-Paramount acquired the rights to Colleen Houck's novel Tiger's Curse.

  1. I am a fan of this new Hunger Games poster too! It has that epic feel that I think is so necessary to convey for this series. Can't wait for when it hits the big screen!

  2. Wow! They just keep optioning YA books for movies, don't they? Not that I'm complaining! I'm looking forward to a lot of them!

  3. Ooh, lots of good news! And wow that was fast about Lani Taylor's book--that one's only been out a few months, right? Surprising they're doing another Wind in the Willows adaptation--there already is one (well, a loose adaptation, I guess) called A Year With Frog and Toad which did moderately well when released. Wonder how they'll manage the car joyride scene.


    Smiles!
