Here's your latest roundup of YA Movie News-lots of exciting things happening!!
-SLJ's Connect the Pop has a great guest post up about what readers should know about YA Movie adaptations. Lots of great info!
-I discovered a fabulous list of YA book to movies kept by The Young Folks. Check it out-all the latest updates about what books are heading to the big screen and what happened to those that were optioned and we haven't heard anything about.
-Strange Chemistry announced that Blackwood by Gwenda Bond has gone into development for a TV Series with MTV. This book is based on a very intriguing mystery and I think it could make a great TV show.
-I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga has been picked up for development as a TV Series by ABC Family. I think this book could make a great show-I just hope it doesn't get camped up (too much-maybe a minor bit of camp is OK!)
-Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick has been optioned for a film. The book is full of drama and romance and could be popular as Hollywood is looking for the next big YA hit.
-The first movie still from Ender's Game has appeared. (Can I admit my terrible secret that I've never read the book? I need to get on that!)
-BBC is adapting J. K. Rowling's A Casual Vacancy for TV. Maybe if it happens it will air in the US too?
-NBC has hired Jullian Fellows (Downton Abbey creator) to create a series for the US based on The Gilded Age. Still very early news, but I'm pretty excited about it. I hope it works out! Thanks to Cynopsis for the news.
