YA Movie News

-The official track listing for the Hunger Games soundtrack has been released. The soundtrack is out March 20 and it looks like it will be very folksy and indie rock.I'm curious to see if they use any of the songs from the soundtrack in the film, or use a score instead and use the soundtrack over the credits. Somehow I just can't see having popular songs used in the arena.

-Remember that CW pilot in the works based in part on the 1980s TV show Beauty and the Beast? Kristin Kreuk from Smallville has been cast in the Beauty role. Thanks to Cynopsis for the news.

-Another CW show in development is The Selection, based on the upcoming YA novel by Kiera Cass. Aimee Teagarden from Friday Night Lights has been cast as America Singer, one of the women competing for the love of a prince.  

-Summit Entertainment has a writer attached to the movie adaptation of Erin Morgenstern's novel, The Night Circus. Moira Buffini also wrote the script for Jane Eyre. I think this will be a difficult book to adapt and I really hope the movie turns out good!

-The Beautiful Creatures movie will be released on February 1, 2013. I'm getting very excited with the casting choices and I can't wait to see the movie!

-The Mortal Instruments movie was dropped by Screen Gems, the studio that was set to produce the film. Author Cassandra Clare wrote a note to fan saying this doesn't hurt the movie and it's still in production-the company that owns the rights to the film is still committeed to making the movie and could look elsewhere. I just wonder if this will delay the filming a bit longer.


  1. I definitely agree about The Hunger Games. There's no way that modern music will work in the arena. We need a film score, and an epic one at that.

  2. I am SUPER excited about THG soundtrack! I love that there's so much country/folk music. It'll be interesting to see when/if it comes into the movie...

  3. I'm really excited to see how the pilot for The Selection turns sounds like it could be so good. I also can't wait to start seeing more info on The Night Circus. That one's going to be tough to do well...the book is definitely one of a kind!

  4. Maybe I'm just behind the times, but I am SOO excited to hear that Beautiful Creatures will be made into a movie. That is, by far, one of my favorite YA books. I just hope the casting is done well...
