YA Movie News

-Harry Potter is getting another movie. Warner Brothers and J.K. Rowling announced Friday that Rowling is penning a script based on Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them, one of the Hogwarts textbooks. Rowling wrote the textbook for charity several years ago during the height of Harry Potter popularity. It will be based in the same world, but take place before the Harry Potter books and movies. I'm still not sure what I think of this news-I'm excited and nervous as to how it will turn out. What are your thoughts on the news?

-Willem Dafoe has joined the cast of The Fault in Our Stars, taking on the role of author Peter Van Houten.

-Disney Channel is working on a TV movie based on Boys Are Dogs by Leslie Margolis to air in 2014. The movie version will be called Zapped! Thanks to Publishers Weekly for the news.

  1. I can't help but be super excited about the Fantastic Beasts movies! I just hope they have the magic and broad appeal that the HP films had. I'm also nervous.

    PS The YA movie I'm dying to have happen is Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking series - I never hear any news on it! Hoping it's still on.
