YA Movie News

-Divergent is on the cover of this weeks Entertainment Weekly. The article includes several new photos from the set and early talk about the film, but we'll have to wait until March 2014 to see the final product. I will say, it has me even more excited for the movie!

-A new trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will debut at Comic-Con.

-Paramount has acquired movie rights to The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau

-If you can't wait for The Vampire Academy movie, you can win a chance to visit the set!

-Remember Choose Your Own Adventure? A movie version could be in the works and heading to Hollywood!

-And another flashback to childhood: An Encyclopedia Brown movie is in the works with Warner Brothers.  I remember getting a made for TV movie of Encyclopedia Brown from the library when I was a kid and I loved it!

-Lauren Oliver's upcoming book, Panic, has sold movie rights to Universal. The book will be published in 2014.  All of these pre-publication deals have me thinking that Hollywood is finally catching on that some of the best writing is happening in YA!

-Tim Burton is set to direct the film version of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. The film will release in July 2015.

-Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville (aka Lord Grantham) is in negotiations to star in a Paddington Bear movie.

And if this trailer doesn't make you want to go see The Spectacular Now right this moment, I don't know what will:
