15 Young Adult Novels Turned Into Movies

16 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Maze Runner will finally hit theaters this Friday, September 19th.

Published in October 2009 and based upon the first book in a bestselling series by James Dashner, the novel became a New York Times Best Seller and captured the imaginations of readers around the world. Fans have described it as a combination of Lord of the Flies, The Hunger Games, and the legendary television series Lost.

Books to film – especially young adult adaptations – are big bucks at the box office. Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga franchises have collectively grossed more than $5 billion at the worldwide box office, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the 10th highest-grossing film of all time.

Over the weekend, Variety reported:

The 20th Century Fox release racked up a strong $8.3 million across five markets last weekend, with debuts that compared favorably to another young adult hit, “Divergent.” “The Maze Runner” is »

First Look: 'Glee' Star Dianna Agron Getting Dangerous in 'Headlock'

8 September 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Outside of the success of the musical comedy series "Glee," Dianna Agron hasn't really had much success on the big screen. The Family and I Am Number Four were both misfires and weren't loved by audiences or critics. So now she's doing something completely different than her previous big screen or small screen efforts with Headlock, an action thriller that marks the directorial debut of The Astronaut Farmer scribe Mark Polish. And now we have a first look photo that features Agron with her hair blown back, a sly smile on her face and a gun in her hand. Could this turn the actress into another female action star? Look below! Here's the first photo from Mark Polish's Headlock from International Film Trust: Headlock is written and directed by Mark Polish (writer of The Astronaut Farmer, Twin Falls Idaho, Stay Cool). After new CIA recruit, Kelley Chandler (Polish) is seriously injured during a mission, »

'The Maze Runner' Trailer: Finally a Different Kind of Young-Adult Movie

29 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Twilight was not the first so-called young-adult book to ever become a movie franchise, but it was most definitely a game changer. Once it started making money hand over sparkly fist, every studio in town started snapping up everything in the best seller section of the nearest Barnes & Noble, and the result has been a rash of movies like I Am Number Four, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Beautiful Creatures, Divergent, Vampire Academy, The Host and The Hunger Games. They're all about attractive teenagers with some kind of special talent that makes them a unique part of a world-changing story. Usually there is a love triangle, and a handful of supporting friends, and the bad guys are never singular villains, they're cogs in some larger, institutional structure...

Honest Trailer: 'Divergent' is just 'The Hunger Games' minus games

23 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Divergent and fellow young-adult series The Hunger Games have a few things in common—enough things to confuse Screen Junkies, creators of the always-amusing Honest Trailers, into thinking that Divergent actually is The Hunger Games.

In the new Honest Trailer for 2014’s Divergent, the narrator cuts his voiceover short to point out they’ve already made a trailer for The Hunger Games. “So it’s the same movie but without the actual games?” he says once he discovers it is, in fact, Divergent. “That sounds horrible!”

Once that’s settled, the narrator launches into his description: “Enter a world inspired »

Win Tickets To The Advance Screening Of The Purge: Anarchy In St. Louis

7 July 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In 2013, the country responded to the provocative concept that on one night every year, any and all crime is made legal. Audiences turned The Purge into a surprise summer hit as the film debuted at No. 1 with an astonishing $34.1 million weekend at the domestic box office.

After witnessing the response to the film and listening to the conversations that it provoked, James DeMonaco (writer/director of The Purge and writer of The Negotiator, Assault on Precinct 13) quickly returned to the explosive universe that he created with an even more arresting idea for a sequel: placing the audience outside on the streets during the annual Purge.

A speculative thriller that shows us what occurs during The Purge outside of the confines of a suburban neighborhood, The Purge: Anarchy returns us to a dystopic future. Our government, now re-engineered by the New Founders of America (Nfa), has sanctioned its annual 12-hour »

Teresa Palmer Taking Lead Female Role in Remake of 'Point Break'

16 June 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After getting caught up with superpowered aliens in I Am Number Four and recovering zombies in Warm Bodies, the lovely Australian actress Teresa Palmer is heading into remake territory. Alcon Entertainment has announced that Palmer is taking the female lead in their remake of the action thriller Point Break starring Edgar Ramirez (who replaced the departed Gerard Butler) in the role of Bodhi, originated by Patrick Swayze, and Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah, the role played by Keanu Reeves. It's not clear how pivotal of a role Palmer will have, but if it follows suit of the original, she won't have a large amount of screentime. Our best guess is that Palmer will play Utah's significant other in the film, but maybe the remake changes the story a bit and allows for a female role to get more involved in the story. Palmer is currently busy shooting Triple Nine with director John Hillcoat, »

Teresa Palmer in Talks for Point Break Remake

16 June 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Point Break remake has certainly sparked plenty of debate – namely as to whether or not one is needed. Gerard Butler was cast, then he left. Now, having finally set on Edgar Ramirez and Luke Bracey who will play Bodhi and Johnny Utah respectively, it’s time to add a female to the cast list and Teresa Palmer might be just the woman.

The Australian actress has starred in Warm Bodies with Nicholas Hoult and I Am Number Four with Alex Pettyfer and will soon be seen in Kill Me Three Times and Knight Of Cups.

A final decision on Palmer’s casting is likely to be made soon as principal photography is set to start at the end this month. The film will be directed by Ericson Core and follows an undercover police officer who goes undercover as a surfer in order to infiltrate a group of bank thieves. »

Smallville Scribes Sell Captain Nemo Script

16 June 2014 5:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alfred Gough and Miles Millar have certainly not been resting on their laurels since their phenomenally successful show Smallville came to an end in 2011. Having written the film I Am Number Four, and penned several episodes of the 2011 series Charlie’s Angels, they have now sold a script to Columbia Pictures that features one of the most enduring characters in literature – Captain Nemo.

As the creation of French author Jules Verne, Captain Nemo made his first appearance in the classic novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea in 1870. A mysterious and enigmatic character, he is revealed to be the scientific genius son of an Indian Raja and, as such, is also known as Prince Dakkar. Obsessed with marine exploration and discovery, he invents a deep-sea submarine named the Nautilus, and embarks on incredible adventures. A main feature of the character is his extensive loathing of Imperialism – particularly as perpetrated by the British Empire. »

‘Captain Nemo’ Script Sells

15 June 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar may be best known for their writing on the hit Superman show Smallville, but the duo responsible for the screenplays of Shangahi Noon and I Am Number Four are returning to the big screen with Captain Nemo. Their latest spec script has just been bought by Sony and will give us a new take on the classic Jules Verne character of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea fame.

Joe Roth and Palak Patel are producing, which should give the project a lot of momentum given the fact they currently have the box office success Maleficent in cinemas and are now working on the sequel to Tim Burton’s billion dollar success Alice In Wonderland, titled Through The Looking Glass. Gough and Millar will also take on executive producer roles.

Sony may wish to act quickly on their recent acquisition as Disney are also working »

Roth, in turn, sent the script to Sony.Though Roth has a close relationship with Disney – he’s helped make Alice In Wonderland and this year’s Maleficent happen – the Mouse House already has a Nemo update drifting through development. »

First Photo: Ya Adaptation "Fallen"

1 May 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Diving into the genre of young-adult film adaptations is a dangerous proposition these days. "Harry Potter" and "The Hunger Games" are two of the biggest film franchises there are and cross all demographics. "Twilight" is more female-oriented and less critically acclaimed, but is also a box-office juggernaut. Even though this year's "Divergent" may not be on the same level, only an idiot wouldn't call it a hit with major potential.

Yet there have been numerous bodies left in their wake. "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," "Beautiful Creatures," "The Golden Compass," "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant," "I Am Number Four," "The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising," "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events," "City of Ember," "Stormbreaker," "The Spiderwick Chronicles" and more.

Today, Yahoo has premiered the first photo from the latest to give it a go - a film adaptation of Lauren Kate's book series "Fallen". Some »

Alex Pettyfer Dating Model Marloes Horst

10 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Heartthrob Alex Pettyfer has a new girlfriend: new Mabelline model Marloes Horst.

Pettyfer, star of I Am Number Four and this year’s Endless Love, most famously dated Glee’s Dianna Agron and was rumored to be dating Elvis’ granddaughter, Riley Keough over the past few years. It appears that, once again, the English actor is single no more.

Alex Pettyfer Celebrates Birthday With New Girlfriend

Rumors of a relationship swirled after Horst posted a photo of the two at Disneyland celebrating Pettyfer’s 24th birthday to both Twitter and Instagram on April 10. In the photo, Pettyfer and Horst have their arms around each other, posing sweetly for the picture, in front of what appears to be Winnie the Pooh’s Honey, or ‘Hunny,’ Pots. And, if the intimate pose wasn’t enough, Horst captioned the photo, “Happy birthday baby.”
