YA Movie News

-Mugglenet reports that the USPS Will issue a new Harry Potter forever stamp in November. You can bet all of baby GreenBean's birth announcements will be sporting these!

-Have you seen all the ads for the Capitol Beauty Studio as part of the Catching Fire marketing campaign? It's a cool idea, but I'm not sure I'd actually wear any of the makeup looks. Anyone else?

-If I Stay has cast Mia's dad-Joshua Leonard will be taking the role. I actually am not familiar with either of the actors playing Mia's parents, but oh my goodness, they look the part and just picturing them in the movie breaks my heart. I'm not sure I can watch the film-the book made me sob! The movie has just started filming.

-A director, Henry Selick, has been chosen for the movie adaptation of A Tale Dark and Grimm. Mr. Selick has some experience with book adaptions-he also directed James and the Giant Peach and Coraline.

-Robert Zemeckis is signed on to direct The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. I'm sure we can add this one in the "movies that will make me cry" pile.

-For BBC fans, January is going to be a big month! Both Sherlock and Downton Abbey are airing in the US starting in January-Downton Abbey appears first on January 5 and Sherlock is back on January 19. My teens can't wait for Sherlock!

-Even with a poor box office performance and talk that a sequel wouldn't be made, The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes sequel is back on and will begin filming in 2014.

-A Captain Underpants film in underway with a script written and a director attached.
