YA And Kid-Lit Books Into Movies News

We've got two more Tributes! District 1's Careers were cast this week. Jack Quaid will play Marvel and Leven Rambin will play Glimmer in the movie adaptation of the amazing book series, The Hunger Games.

Newcomer Willow Shields has been cast as Prim, Katniss' little sister and guardian to the often unpleasant cat, Buttercup.

Also in HG movie news, rumor has it that Elizabeth Banks is being considered for the role of Effie Trinket. i'm kinda liking the idea of Kristin Chenoweth for that part though but we'll have to wait and see. Although, it seems the cast is coming together fairly quickly now that the three leads have been chosen so maybe we'll have our Effie any day now.

The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare is getting all movie-ified. TRUTH SERUM TiME- i haven't read any of these books yet. But i do own City of Bones and i've already been scolded by my BFF to "read these books already!" So it has now been moved to the top of my TBR pile.
Anyhoo, Lily Collins will play Clary Fray and here is a clip of her discussing what is necessary for a guy to win the role of Jace. Apparently there have been rumors that Alex Pettyfer has been suggested for for the part. He's kinda like a Book Into Movie-leading man-whore. First he had I Am Number Four and Beastly. Then there was talk of him being up for the role of Peeta and now he's supposedly in the running for this movie too. Yep. Total Book Into Movie-leading man-whore.

It happened for Greg Heffley. And Ramona Quimby. This summer it's Judy Moody's turn. Starting June 10th, Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer will be heading to theaters. Kid-lit has really been on fire at the box office lately. It makes me wonder, could Junie B. Jones, Nate the Great, or my personal fave, Fudge Hatcher be far behind?

That's all the movie news i have for you right now but i'll be keeping you posted every step of the way until we have the entire cast of The Hunger Games so be sure to check back in soon!
