-The Fault in Our Stars has a director, Josh Boone.

-Hailee Steinfeld is starring in Ender's Game and Entertainment Weekly has a first look of her in the film. I need to catch up and read this book!

-Deadline has a featurette up about The Host movie. I tried to read the book, but couldn't get into it, but this video makes me want to try it again!

-The Selection has been re-optioned and being rebooted for The CW, which means a new cast. Actress Yael Groblas, who has started in a television series in her native Israel, is taking the role of America and hoping to headline a hit series in the United States. Let's hope the show works this time around!

-Lots of classics are getting reworked. Sony is working on an Oliver Twist update.

I love this promo photo for Catching Fire! What does everyone else think? It's just perfect don't you think?

  1. Awesome news. My daughter loved The Selection. If this becomes a series, she's going to be excited.

    1. This is the second time it's gone to production, so here's hoping it actually happens this time!

  2. OMG - So glad I read this so that I'll be sure to tune into Rock Center tonight!

    Also... not so sure about Ms. Woodley getting all the good parts! I was no great fan of The Secret Life, and would love to see Hailee as Hazel!!

    1. I've never seen Secret Life. I think Hailee would be great too but I'm OK with either one.

  3. I love the new Hunger Games poster, although Peeta looks a lot like a Ken doll!

    1. Haha! He kind of does! I really like it-it looks just like something The Capital would put out!
