29 April 2015 3:18 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hailee Steinfeld will be haunted by a vengeful ghost in the adaptation of young adult novel Break My Heart 1000 Times.

This adaptation of the hit young adult novel will be written by Ice Age: Continental Drift's Jason Fuchs, reports TheWrap.

Break My Heart 1000 Times' directing chair is being given to Step Up Revolution's Scott Speer for the first film in what could turn into a franchise.

Hailee Steinfeld Joins ‘Break My Heart 1,000 Times’ Adaptation

28 April 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

Sick of Young Adult novel adaptations based in the supernatural genre? Then you’ll hate the following news update…

True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld has joined the cast of Break My Heart 1,000 Times, based on a book written by Daniel Waters. The story centres around a world where humans and ghosts – Remnants – live side by side in peaceful cohabitation. However, when a young girl is sent a terrifying message by a Remnant she must take on a mission that’ll change her life forever.

Music video and Step Up Revolution director Scott Speer will take the helm. If you’re a fan of the novel then you need not worry (as much), as Speer is not only a director but an author too, having penned the trilogy of Immortal City books. If there’s one person you want behind the scenes of an adaptation it’s a fellow writer.

Hailee Steinfeld Says Break My Heart 1,000 Times

27 April 2015 5:09 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

No stranger to adaptations of novels, Hailee Steinfeld is making a deal to star in another. She’s leading the cast for a new film based on supernatural romantic young adult thriller Break My Heart 1,000 Times. Daniel Waters – not the one who wrote Heathers – is the author behind this one, creating the story of a world in which a cataclysmic event leaves the barrier between our world and that of the dead torn asunder. The result is ghost-like essences of the deceased known as “Remnants” becoming part of every day life. But after years of relatively peaceful life together, one of the Remnants sends a young woman (Steinfeld) a threatening message, spurring her on a mission that will change her life. Jason Fuchs wrote the adaptation and Step Up Revolution director Scott Speer is aboard to call the shots in what Gold Circle Films hopes will be a franchise-spawning movie. »

Patrick Schwarzenegger and Bella Thorne paired up for dinner on Wednesday night in La. The two rising stars were spotted chatting and smiling as they left the Mud Hen Tavern together. Patrick tweeted about the outing, tagging both Bella and MTV director Scott Speer and saying, "Good little dinner meet with @MrScottSpeer and @bellathorne cooooool stuff coming."

In spite of the swirling rumors about a rift between the new couple, Miley and Patrick stepped out for a casual lunch together last week.

Scott Speer Enters Realm

23 March 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With a keen eye open for a spiffy new potential franchise, Relativity has snapped up the rights to Realm, a new Young Adult dark fantasy pitch by director Scott Speer (Step Up 4: Miami Heat). Rebecca Sonnenshine (The Vampire Diaries) wrote the screenplay.Speer sealed the deal with a proof-of-concept short film which you can watch above. The story revolves around Claire Daniels (played in the short by Adelaide Kane), a sort-of-exorcist in sort-of Matrix threads.The slight twist in the set-up is that, while a traditional exorcism simply casts a demon out of the possessed to go elsewhere, Claire finishes the job and kills the supernatural bastards. She seems to do this by entering a coma-like state which gives her access to "the subconscious mind of the posessed, or the Realm of the Soul." Hence the name. So the Beckinsale Pvc and leather is her subconscious avatar, while outside »
