i've got a few links concerning some of your fave books-into-movies projects that are fast approaching so let's get this thing started!
i'll start with all the Breaking Dawn hoopla that has been going down recently because of the sudden appearance of... wait of iiiiiiiiiit..... Renesmee! You know, that fictional vampire/human child that isn't AT ALL real?!?!? Well, to be so fictitious homegirl is suddenly all anyone can talk about. In fact, in case you didn't already know, this week she shares the cover of Entertainment Weekly with her parents and that baby-lover Jacob.
And if that wasn't enough, there's also this teeny tiny teaser trailer that just popped up for Twihards to lose their shizz all over!
GAH, i HATE those motherfucking eyes!!! Is anyone else kinda already sick of the whole Twilight thing? Is it just me? Are you kinda on pins and needles just for this thing to end already? i was so excited for the first Twilight movie to come out but then somewhere along the way i've really just completely lost interest. i blame most of this on Kristen Stewart's face. i mean, you're an actor. Your job is to fucking EMOTE! This is our fifth and final go round with you as Bella Swan so could you please pick another emotion other than your go-to. And by that i mean suicidal. i don't know if you realize this Kristen but for most of this franchise you look like you're always mere minutes away from sticking your head in an oven. i mean, Bella is now a vampire and if i felt like Kristen Stewart ALWAYS looks, i don't think i'd want to live forever. Even if it was with Cedric Diggory. i'm just saying, Kristen Stewart's face is kind of a cautionary tale for those that think immortality is the bees knees.
Anyhoozle, let's move on, shall we?
There's maybe, possibly, perhaps, finally some casting news for Catching Fire. Word around the internet is that Phillip Seymour Hoffman has been tapped to play Plutarch Heavensbee, the new head gamemaker taking over for Seneca Crane.
Check out this first look of The Host, the movie based on the novel by Stephenie Meyer which will be coming to a theater near you March 29th, 2013. i already knew it starred Saoirse Ronan who will be playing Melanie. But i didn't know that the role of Ian O'Shea would be played by Jake Abel. Who is kind of an old pro when it comes to books-into-movies. (He played in Percy Jackson, I Am Number Four, and The Lovely Bones.) Oh and you might also remember him as the third (and least important) Winchester brother from Supernatural!
Libba Bray has a new book coming out this September called The Diviners and Paramount has already scooped up the movie rights. The description of the book sounds really interesting (New York! Pickpockets! The Occult!) so it could very well make a great movie too. Plus it helps that Libba Bray herself will be adapting the screenplay.
That's all the books-into-movies news i've got for you this time. So what do you guys think? Any movie that you're looking forward to? Any casting picks of your own for Catching Fire? Wanna rant a little about Kristen Stewart and her constantly constipated face ya damn self? Feel free to dish it all up in the comments section below.
(Oh and be sure to tell me what you think of that 13 second teaser trailer too.)
