The Hunger Games and Emma Watson Book-to-Movie News!

Fanart by Itstoodark

Lionsgate has set the date for the first Hunger Games Movie!  

According to Variety, the movie will be released March 23, 2012.  Yikes, that's forever away!!  I can't wait to see who they pick for all of the characters!  I think this mock movie poster is pretty freaking awesome and have to give a shout out to Itstoodark, the creator.  What a fantastic job!  If you'd like to read the Reading Teen Crew's review of The Hunger Games books, you can find them here.



In other movie news, Emma Watson (Harry Potter) and Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Olympians) are in talks to star in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.  I haven't read this book, so I have no idea if this is a good casting or not.  Have you read it?  What do you think?  I really like Emma Watson and Logan Lerman, so it sounds pretty good to me! -(Variety)  There's no news on when the movie will be released, but John Malkovich is supposed to be producing it!

  2. It seems like the casting could have been better (for Perks of being A WallFlower)but its been forever since I've read it so my memory is fuzzy.
    Do you know when the movie is supposed to come out?

  5. I started reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower. However, I found it extremely vulgar and had to stop reading. I get that it's supposed to be very "real," but it wasn't anything I could relate to, and I found it to not be to my taste.

  7. Awesome movie news! I've heard great things about The Perks of Being a Wallflower, now I'm going to have to find time to read it before the movie is released. I'm definitely going to watch it to see Emma and Logan act together. :D

  10. I got so excited for a minute... I thought they'd announced the casting for The Hunger Games. Isn't that the girl who played Annabeth in Percy Jackson on the poster? I never thought of her before but I think she could potentially play that role... potentially.

  11. I would really like to see them in a movie together! I love both of them. Emma, of course is my favorite because I'm slightly obsessed with Harry Potter. But I really think Logan is super cute!!

    Lyla-haha, sorry about that!! Didn't mean to get your hopes up!! That does look like the girl from PJ. I'm not sure how I feel about her being Katniss, it could work....
