The Perks of Being a Wallflower Movie!!!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky was published over 10 years ago but teens are still reading it.  Some would even call this book a "young adult classic"; there are few books with that claim.  Now we can see The Perks of Being a Wallflower on the big screen in 2012.  It will be interesting to see what Chbosky will do with the film since he is the writer and director.  For more information about the movie check out these two websites:

Book-to-Movie News!

Attention all Horror-Fantasy fans!  

Joseph Delaney's popular tween-teen crossover series "The Last Apprentice" — now on book 8 or so —  is being adapted into a movie!

The movie, planned as the first in a series, will be based on the first book only,  Revenge of the Witch, and will be called "The Seventh Son."  Stars already lined up include Jeff Bridges (as the Spook) and Julianne Moore (as scary-evil witch Mother Malkin).  No announcement yet who will play the young apprentice Tom (although one rumor says Alex Pettyfer).  The latest IMDb posting has it scheduled for release in 2013.

Haven't read these yet?  Don't be fooled by the location of these books in the children's section of the library — they are seriously creepy!  And the 2013 movie release date gives you plenty of time to catch up!

Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss??

It seems the speculation about who will play Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movie may almost be over. Now we just need to wait with bated breath to see who will play Peeta and Gale.

I haven't seen "Winter's Bone," which I guess is what catapulted Jennifer to the top of the casting list.  I definitely don't picture Katniss as a cute blonde, but I guess Hollywood can make people look anyhow they like.  I liked the portrayal of Katniss by Danielle Chuchran (who is also a blonde) in this trailer, so looks don't really matter. 

What do you think about Jennifer Lawrence playing this role?

Movie Update!

Beastly the movie was suppose to open on July 30th.  Now according to IMDB the release date will be March 18, 2011!!!  Give us plenty of time to check out the book before the movie comes out!

Rumor has it that Uglies the movie will go into production later this year!  If you haven't read this trilogy yet, now is a great time to start.  The first book in the series is Uglies by Scott Westerfeld.

Flipped the movie is coming out August 6th!  This movie is based on Wendelin Van Draanen's book.  It should be a sweet romantic comedy!

The Invention of Hugo Cabret the movie is currently in film production.  According to IMDB, Hugo Cabret will be release on December 9, 2011.  Which leaves plenty of time to read the book. 

Read it before you see it!

This summer promises to be a great movie watching summer! There are three movies coming out this summer that are based on YA books. Read the book before you see the movie!
