-Melanie at Melanie’s Musings and I have been blogging and discussing about Downton Abbey Season 2. Be sure to catch Melanie’s recap of what we both agree was the best episode so far this season!
--Jandy Nelson’s debut novel, The Sky is Everywhere, has a big name star attached to the movie adaptation. Selena Gomez is attached to produce the film and most likely star.
-The Michael Buckley tween series, Nerds, is heading to the big screen thanks to Elton John’s production company, Rocket Pictures.
--From Cynopsis Kids, ABC has approved a one hour drama titled 666 Park Ave, based on a series by Gabriella Pierce. The series is from Alloy Entertainment who also produce The Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle and Gossip Girl. The series is about a Midwestern couple who relocates to NY and find themselves in a building where the residents have made deals with the devils. I think this one could have teen appeal for sure!
-According to Diablo Cody, her adaptation of Sweet Valley High for the big screen may end up being a musical.
-Six of the nine Academy Award nominees for Best Picture have been adapted from books, including two middle grade novels, Hugo (from The Invention of Hugo Cabret) and War Horse (from the book War Horse). Early Word has a great round up of all book to movie nominees in all categories. I think an Academy Award Book Club would be a great library program!
