YA Movie News

I know I haven't posted YA movie news in a long time (it's been over a month and before that it was many months!) But I'm going to try and get back to posting. For now, I'm posting the things I'm most excited about   that I haven't posted about yet:

-Disney is making a movie adapted from Ally Condie's novel, Matched and Twilight: Eclipse director David Slade is set to direct. Thanks to Cynopsis Kids! for the news.

-Nina LaCour is turning Hold Still into a move. The funds were raised on Kickstarter which I think is awesome!

-Elle Fanning has been cast in the movie adaptation of Olive's Ocean, based on the book by Kevin Henkes. (Thanks to Shelf-Awareness for the news)

-The Great Gatsby movie is moving from a Holiday Season release to Summer 2013. I don't care when it comes out, I will be there.

-Modern day twists on classics seem to be very popular right now. We have BBC's Sherlock, the upcoming CBS Elementary, and now Fox is working on an updated version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (according to Cynopsis News). 

-And speaking of classics, Cynopsis News also reports that Jonathan Rhys Meyers will "headline a new 10-episode drama, Dracula, approved by NBC.

-And OK, this isn't really YA related, but anyone else think this updated version of The Brady Brunch?

-According to Cynopsis News, Lifetime ordered a pilot for The Witches of East End, based on Melissa Marr's adult novel. Exciting, but anyone still want a Wicked Lovely move?? 

-Beautiful Creatures and The Mortal Instruments are in the midst of production and I can't wait to see both of these films in production. I'll try to update more about these films as YA Movie News continues, but there is just too much to catch up on right now!'

And for some trailers!! First up, the Season Three Preview for Downton Abbey!! (insert lots of happy dancing and squeeing!!)

And second, the trailer for Oz the Great and Powerful which I will admit looks like a prequel that actually looks good!
