News 4 Yabookaholics! (2)

N4Y Features recent news from the Young Adult book world!
Join the gossip and start spreading news -and joy- to the yabookaholics of the world.

These are the books I know that will be becoming a movie:
  • Hunger Games (Lionsgate, 2010) - IMDB
  • A Great & Terrible Beauty (2010) - IMDB
  • Wings - (DISNEY- Miley Cyrus will be starring, 2011) - IMBD
  • Beastly - will be released on July 30th, 2010 starring: Neil Patrick Harris (Will Fratalli), Vanessa Hudgens (Linda), Mary-Kate Olsen (Kendra Hilferty), Alex Pettyfer (Kyle Kingsbury) & Director and Screenplay: Daniel Barnz - IMDB
  • Uglies - Westerfeld has been talking about the movie and "movie makers" on his blog. I don't know if its going for sure. (This one is quite difficult to do)

The Tempted cover is now on the House of Night website:

* Check out the super cool Prophecy of the Sisters site!

* Book 2 of Wings by Aprilynne Pike will be released June 8, 2010. The final title has not been selected.

* In case you haven't heard, there is a new Victoria for Eclipse, the 3rd movie of the Twilight saga, due to schedule conflicts. You can see the new Victoria here. Here is what Rachelle Lafevre had to say:
I was fully committed to the ‘Twilight’ saga, and to the portrayal of Victoria, I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules. My commitment to ‘Barney’s Version’ is only ten days. Summit picked up my option for ‘Eclipse.’ Although the production schedule for ‘Eclipse’ is over three months long, Summit said they had a conflict during those ten days and would not accommodate me. Given the length of filming for ‘Eclipse,’ never did I fathom I would lose the role over a 10 day overlap. I was happy with my contract with Summit and was fully prepared to continue to honor it. Summit chose simply to recast the part.

The good news I have is that Eclipse will premiere on June 30, 2010. So the wait will be much, much shorter!

  1. I am still loving this feature. The cover for Tempted looks good!

    I still can't believe they're going to replace her in Eclipse. I hate when they do that crap in movies. *raspberry sound*


  2. Yeah that sucks. I hate when they changed actors its just so lame..

    Great you liked the feature!!

  3. Great round-up! I'm so annoyed about the Eclipse cast change - I hate it when that happens :(

    Love the new Tempted cover, and can't wait for The Hunger Games movie!
