Hi bookish friends! It’s that time of the month again, where we get together and talk about anticipated book to movie adaptations, in my feature, Showtime! In this feature, I’ll provide you with the latest news of upcoming movies, tv shows and projects in development, obviously related with young adult books.
And this month, I have some news! Between projects becoming alive, and new projects coming up, there are lots to talk about! So let’s get to it, shall we!
Showtime – November 2015
Adapted from Before I Fall, by Lauren Oliver
Back in September, I shared the news of Before I Fall being adapted onto the big screen, and needless to say, I WAS EXCITED. It’s one of my favorite books, and I can’t wait to see it on the big screen. Moreover, after Zoey Deutsch being casted, we got some other exciting news!
💭 Halston Sage, Logan Miller and Kian Lawley are going to be part of the movie, too, announced EW. I couldn’t be more thrilled, especially for Halston Sage. I’ve seen her on the Paper Towns movie, and thought she was excellent. I can’t wait.
💭Another casting news… Jennifer Beals joined the cast of the Before I Fall movie. I’m not very familiar with this actress, but I’m just hoping she’ll do a great job, because…
💭The filming has just started! Okay, now, I can officially be excited!!
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda
Adapted from Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, by Becky Albertalli
Okay, so I guess you’ve all heard the news by now, but, just so we can get excited together AGAIN…. The great Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda was acquired by Fox 2000! So, are you happy about this, or not? Do you already imagine who might be in this cast? Tell me everything, let’s IMAGINE it all together!
Jenna Fox Chronicles
Adapted from The Adoration of Jenna Fox, by Mary E. Pearson
I don’t know if any of you guys know about this book…I haven’t seen it much around. Okay, it’s been released in what, 2008, I think. It’s about a girl, waking up from a long coma, in a futuristic America. She’s supposedly recovering from an accident, but she has no memories of her past life. I did read this book a while ago, and it was WEIRD. But I’m so intrigued about this becoming a movie. Dolphin Films bought the rights just a little while ago. Doesn’t it sound interesting?
His Dark Materials
Adapted from His Dark Materials, by Philip Pullman
I HAVE NO WORDS. When I found out about this, I just couldn’t speak. His Dark Materials is probably one of my favorite books, and, most importantly, it’s my favorite book from my childhood. The universe, the characters, the WHOLE EPICNESS OF IT ALL. I just can’t say more, if you’ve read it, you understand. Well, I hope you do. SO, The BBC is going to turn this fantastic trilogy in a TV series. YES, A TV SERIES. I can’t wait. I was really disappointed by the movie adaptation of this (starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig, if you remember). I can’t wait to see this one, and I hope it turns out GOOD.
FLASH MOVIE NEWS!
THIS JUST IN: The first official TEASER TRAILER for the movie of a Monster Calls has been released!! I didn’t read this book yet -I know, shame on me-, but this doesn’t mean I’m not excited to read it, and see the movie. Just yesterday, Patrick Ness posted on his twitter this AWESOME news…To watch it, just click right here! And now, feel free to freak out !! As for me…well, let me go buy this book right this second.
