Books Into Movies Linky-Dink-O-Rama

So you may remember that previously in a Miscellaneous File i told y'all about this new Diablo Cody/Jason Reitman flick  starring Charlize Theron in which she plays a YA writer. Which is cool cos when have you ever seen a movie about a YA writer? But it could be bad too cos from the little info that i've found she apparently doesn't have her shit together and her life is somewhat of a big fat mess. So not necessarily giving our peeps the respect they deserve it seems. Anyhoosies, the new news is that the poster for said movie is now floating around the blogosphere and if you haven't seen it yet, here it is:

i gotta say, i really dig this poster. It reminds me of the old 80s/90stastic covers of yesteryear. You could easily envision that drunk mess blonde as one of the Wakefield twins (probably Jessica) so i thought that was pretty clever. (Plus y'all know that Diablo Cody is supposed to maybe, possibly make a Sweet Valley movie, right? This poster seems like maybe one has inspired the other.) So now we have the poster, which looks pretty cool, but still no trailer. Lets reserve our judgment for the day when we can see actual moving pictures, kay? 

Twihards, prepare to lose ya damn minds! Here is the latest clip from Breaking Dawn:

In it we see a more preggers Kristen Stewart. (It appears, much like the Lolcats, Bella can has cheezburger. FiNALLY!) Plus Carlisle's hair has gone from horrid to complete shitballs. Which is bad, in case you didn't realize. i don't know about y'all but for some reason the more Twilight movies they make the less excited i get about them. i don't know what's wrong with me. Do any of you guys feel this way? i'm wondering if i'm the only slight hater out there. Hmm.

Have you ever wondered what your district would be if you lived in Panem? Well wonder no more cos now the Capitol has a website you can join! You have to have an account on either Twitter or Facebook in order to participate. You can bet your sweet ass muscles that this chick joined. i'm in District 8, the textiles district. Not much has happened so far. i'm hoping we'll get like exclusive movie info or photos or SOMETHING cool since it's affiliated with the movie. So far nada.

Lauren Oliver's book, Before I Fall has been optioned for movie-making! Here's a link with a little information but i don't think they've made any of the big decisions yet like who will play Sam. i'll keep you posted as soon as i get more deets about this one.

And lastly, Disney Channel has acquired the rights to two YA novels that they'll be making into movies soon. First, is Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph which i've heard will be changed to Radio Rebel and will star Debby Ryan. And the second movie is Geek Charming based on the book of the same name by Robin Palmer and will star Sarah Hyland.

That's the news for now. If you've found any Books Into Movies news that i've missed and that you'd like to share, drop me a line in the comments section and tell me all about it!
