YA Movie News

Oh my goodness! It's been so long since I posted YA Movie News and there is so much exciting stuff to share!

-Jessica Brody's Unremembered Trilogy has been optioned for a film.

-The Fault In Our Stars isn't the only John Green book heading to the big screen. Paper Towns is getting the film treatment and John Green will be on board as a producer. 

-Summit has picked up Dork Diaries for the big screen

-As is the trend with popular franchises, Summit announced they will split Allegiant into two films. Sigh...I love YA novel film adaptations but I really wish they would stop with this making the movies last forever thing. Just because it worked for Harry Potter doesn't mean it will work for everything else.

-Ann Brashares' The Here and Now was picked up by the producers of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. 

-Blake Nelson's novel, Recovery Road, has a pilot order from ABC Family.

-Paramount is working on a film adaptation of Lisa McMann's Wake starring Miley Cyrus by attaching a writer to the project. This one has been in the works for a while so it will be interesting to see if it actually happens.

-Summit is just making themselves known as the YA novel adaptation company with the purchase of the film rights to John Corey Whaley's Noggin

And there are so many trailers!!!


  1. thank you so much for this. I don't follow this kind of news and this was wonderful...I loved the trailers and the possibilities. ~Sheri

  2. I feel like the YA genre is like an Oprah giveaway. "You get a movie deal! And you get a movie deal! We all get movie deals! AHHHHH!" I don't understand the hype for most because not every book needs a major motion picture to go with it.

    But I suppose I'll feel that way until my favorite book gets picked up. Then I'll run around pulling my hair with excitement, stressing about how it will turn out.

    1. I love that analogy! It does feel like every book that comes out has a movie deal attached. It gets especially crazy when the movie rights are sold even before the book is published!


I love hearing from other readers! Share your thoughts and chime in!
