The Selection Movie has a Director!!!

If you are a fan of the best-selling series The Selection by Kiera Cass you will be elated to know that the movie has taken a huge leap forward by getting a director! Kiera Cass tweeted about the “Me Before You” director Thea Sharrock becoming the selectin movies director and everyone is so excited! It’s also great to know that the author is involved in the movie because she told the fans the news. I watched “Me Before You” and realy enjoyed it (even though it made me cry). I really love Thea Sharrock’s style and the way she transferred  the book into a movie. I truly believe The Selection movie is in good hands.

ComingSoon--animated

Even though this list is overdue because 2016 has already started and has had some great movies come out that I was looking forward too, like The 5th wave, Allegiant, Zootopia and more, i still wanted to share the rest of my list! these movies are in no particular order but I cant wait to see them all!

1.Fantastic beasts and where to find them-2016

This will the first Harry Potter movie that I will be able to see in theaters, so it’ll be very special! I’m so excited to dive back into the wizarding world and it’s amazing that we’re also getting an 8th story this year too, based on the play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!

2.Looking for Alaska-2017

I’ve loved all of John Green’s books and movies so I can’t wait to see how Looking for Alaska will be adapted to film! It was John Green’s  first book, and many fans are very attached to this story so I hope they do it justice. Though the production got moved back due to casting issues, I can’t wait to see who they cast because every other John Green cast has been golden!

3.Beauty and the Beast-2017

Emma Watson will be perfect portrayal of  Belle, with be beauty and previous acting experience of playing smart and strong characters. With the release of many Disney remakes like Cinderella in 2015, I can’t wait to see more adapted into real life!

4. The Little Mermaid-2017

Ariel’s story has always been my favorite Disney Princess story and it makes me even more overjoyed  that Chloe Grace Moretz got the part! I wonder how they’ll make the underwater scenes look amazing and what the wardrobe will look like because I loved the ball gowns in the cartoon version.

5. Now You See Me 2-2016

I fell in love with the first movie and am so excited that Harry Potter actor, Danielle Radcliffe, will take part in it! The trailer looks just as fun and cunning as the last! I’m sure the magic tricks will be even more intricate and fascinating this time around too!

6. The Huntsmen: Winters war-2016

This Snow White remake is one of my favorite movies that’s not a book adaptation and was overjoyed to find that there would be a sequel. I am sill sad that Kristen Stewart won’t be in this sequel for reasons I can understand, but I really think she made a perfect fierce Snow White. I’ve heard that after this movie they may try to make another prequel or sequel depending on how well it does and if fans would want another movie.

7. Miss peregrines home for peculiar children-2016

I read this book a few years ago and am thrilled to see it come to life. I thought it was one of the creepiest stories I’ve ever read, even though I don’t read many scary books. It seems more family friendly from the trailer but I don’t know it’s rating yet. The casting was done great and I’m sure many people will want to see it just for them, and the fact that it’s a Tim Burton film.

 8.Star Wars: Episode VIII-2017

The Force Awakens was the first Star Wars movie I’d ever seen, and I thoroughly enjoyed it and loved all the characters.  I don’t think I will watch the previous movies, but I will definitely   watch the rest of the sequels from now on.  I can’t wait to see where the story and world will go on form here, and am a shipper of Finn and Rey, so I want to see where that will go! Also, the cast members in real life are  so endearing and humble for becoming stars over night!

9. The Death Cure-2017

Though the ending of The Scorch Trials movie was different from the book, I don’t mind it and want to see how they will continue the story in the final film. The deaths in this movie will be hard to watch , but since I read the book I think I will be emotionally ready! The release date got pushed back due to Dylan O’ Brien’s injury, but it is said that he will make a speedy recovery.

10. All the bright places-2017

I haven’t read this book yet, but want to read it soon! I’ve heard only amazing reviews of this story and want to dive into it myself. Also, Elle Fanning will be starring in it and she’s an amazing young actress.

Allegiant Part 1 Movie Updates

AllegiantPart1LogoPoster

Alllegiant will be released in March 2016. I’m super excited to see where the Divergent franchise will go but I have set the bar for the next movie quite low because of my disappointment in the Insurgent movie. I understand that with the new director that we got for Insurgent I should have known that the movie might be a little different than  Divergent, which was  directed by Neil Burger, but wasn’t expecting a drastic  change. Even the Harry potter movies, which had many different directors over the 10 years of movies, seemed to be able to keep a steady understanding of the story but with a diffident feel for each movie as the story got darker.  I was mainly upset about not having many scenes about Uriah, Marlene, and Lynn and how crazy the visual effects were.  

Here are some recent stills and updates on the Allegiant Part 1 movie!

The Young Elites Movie

the-young-elites-marie-lu-interview (1)
Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.  

(Summary from Goodreads.com)


I Just finished this book today and it was amazing! I can now say, having read all of Marie Lu’s books, that she is one of my favorite authors. Of course while I was reading The Young Elites I looked it up and found out that it will also become a movie, like Marie Lu’s other trilogy Legend. It will be adapted by Fox and Temple Hill Entertainment, who also made the Maze Runner franchise, The Fault in ours stars, and Paper Towns movies.Though the movie doesn’t have a writer or director,Marty Bown and Wyck Godfrey, who were a part of the Twilight and Maze Runner franchises will be producing the film. They will also be producing the Legend film as well.  I can’t wait to see who they cast as the Elite characters but hope they keep all their diversity in mind, because I really loved each characters individuality.

The Selection Movie Dream Cast

the selection book

 AMERICA SINGER  

HollandRoden holland-roden-photos-1

Holland Roden  

I have seen and loved Holland Roden as Lydia on the show Teen Wolf and think she would be able to capture America’s character well. She looks the part and is a little older that America in the book, but if there’s one thing I know about movies is that they always cast older. She is my #1 choice for America and it would be so cool for her to be in the movie.    

attends the BAFTA Los Angeles Awards Season Tea at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on January 9, 2016 in Los Angeles, California.

Sara Hay

I’ve actually have never seen Sara act but she was nominated In the Golden Globes awards in 2015 and she does ballet which will help with the elegant princess look and ballroom dancing. She’s 38 but she looks younger than she is, and she is known for Black Swan and Flesh and Bones. 

Lily Collins 

 


May Singer

Helena_Barlow_by_Ross_Ferguson_c__2012 post-40923-0-52505100-1395514018

 Helena Barlow  

I saw Helena Barlow as Ron and Hermione’s daughter in the Deathly Hallows Part 2 epilogue, which is why she stuck in my head as an actor to remember because even though she didn’t have any lines she was casted  in a really huge film as a really important role that any red headed girl could have gotten, but she did. May also wouldn’t have many lines but I think she has the look and age of her. 


Gerad singer 

emjay_anthony_headshot_a_pemjay-anthony-2

Emjay Anthony 

I saw Emjay Anthony in Insurgent and was so excited when he was casted for Hector. He seems perfect for the role of a little boy who just wants to play sports. He doesn’t have red hair which i’m not sure Gerad does but I think he could still  be good for the role.  

America’s Mother

Jessica Chastain 

I saw Jessica Chastain in The Help and loved her performance, I then looked her up on iMDb,discovered she had read hair, and knew she would be perfect for the role of America’s mom. She’s only 38 and seems like a nice lady. 


Celeste Newsome

mila_kunis_madame_figaro_photoshoot_lqTFhpD_sized mila-kunis-allure-mar-2013-03

Mila Kunis 

She has been in Jupiter Ascending and Black Swan and could play Celeste’s fierce character well. She also looks the part and close in age. 


Marlee Tames

MV5BMTcyMDY5MDQyNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTIyMzcxNQ@@__V1_SX640_SY720_ halston-sage-nbc-pilot

 Halston Sage 

I have seen Halson Sage in Papertowns and she is also in the Bling ring with Emma Watson. She has blonde hair like Marlee and is young enough to continue doing 4 Selection movies since The Heir may have a movie too.


Kriss Ambers

 Emilia Clarke 

She is known from Game of Thrones but I think she looks just like I imagined Kriss. She will aslo be in the movie Me Before you with Sam Claflin. She also seems to have a friendly, kind nature. 


Natalie Luca

tumblr_nnz6wt3VuS1sqq6ybo1_400 00343906_medium 

Lily James   

I’ve seen Lily James in Fast Girls and Cinderella and think she did a great job in both movies. She looks and is similar in age to Natalie and  has experience at being a princess in training  from Cinderella! 


Elise Whisks  

e16dcc5a352198b66e0e5517dce2c889 a3b92f152e7dfb7678fe1bbdca7d1347

Arden Cho  

I’ve seen Arden Cho in Teen Wolf but also found from iMDb that she was already casted as Elise for the failed Selection TV show, which means they might recast her and we have a chance! She looks the part and plays a really kind sensitive character in Teen Wolf like Elise. She also sings on her YouTube Chanel which is super cool!


Looking for Alaska Director

rebecca-thomas-1

John Green’s third movie Looking For Alaska finally has a Director!!!! Rebecca Thomas has directed the movie electrik children and short films.  The script for the movie has already been written and John Green seems to be very excited about the movie because he wrote this in a recent blog post “But I find myself now actually excited about the movie … Becca gets Alaska–she wrote me this letter that just made it clear to me that she gets it way deep down, and if you’ve seen her movie Electrick Children you’ll know she has a really cool visual imagination. I am not by nature optimistic, but I think it could be a really great movie. So yay for Becca!!!”  Hope we get a cast soon, and check out my Looking For Alaska Dream cast post if you’ve read the book!

Legend Movie updates + Dream soundtrack

download

I kept wondering why no progress has been happening for the Legend movie since it will supposedly be released in 2016, but they’re hasn’t even been any casting! After doing research and waiting FOREVER because I read Legend in 2012, I think I found out the reason why no progress has been made for the movie…we don’t have a director!!! I looked on iMDb other websites and found out that Jonathan Levine, director of Warm Bodies, was supposed to direct the movie but backed up because he didn’t want to do another YA movie after Warm bodies, which I don’t entirely understand because Legend is a whole different genre. So I guess we are looking for another director, and after we find one hopefully the pace will pick up and we can get the rest of the crew and cast! 

Also I made a Dream Soundtrack for the Legend movie on 8 tracks. There are also other really amazing soundtracks dedicated to Legend.

The Double Jacket trend in YA Movies

After watching a series of young adult  movies, mostly based on books, I started to notice this weird trend that either has to do with the weather on the set or how the weather was described in the book. Either way it’s an interesting fashion statement that I don’t  think I’ve ever seen on the street, and it seemed hilarious that so many movies were doing it and I seemed to notice, so I thought i’d share my discoveries with you. And that is….the double jacket tend.

 tumblr_n3mk8d5q5s1rhsnpvo1_500

The first time I noticed the double jacket trend was while watching Deathly Hallows. At first I thought Hermione was just wearing a pink shirt with a jean jacket but then noticed that she was wearing TWO jackets. I am aware that Deathly Hallows was set in winter so everyone was wearing jackets and sweaters but it wasn’t snowing during the battle scene and Hermoine is still the only one wearing a jean jacket which seems uncomfortable to wear during a battle. I even tried to take up the challenge myself and whore a sweater jacket under a jean jacket one day in the winter. It wasn’t too uncomfortable but I was in a school building most of the day and the rooms were actually kept quite cold. It looks great on Hermoine but if I were to see someone else actually wear layers of zip up or button on jackets at one time, I would think it looks a little weird.   


tomorrowland

The second movie I noticed the double jacket trend is in Tommorowland. Casey(left) seems to be wearing 2 actually zip up jackets plus a long shirt underneath, which just looking at makes me wonder how warm Britt Robertson probably was in this costume. Also, Athena(right) is wearing a jacket that looks like multiple jackets sewn together, making it look similar to Casey’s outfit. Though I’m pretty sure this movie didn’t take place in winter, most of the characters were wearing jackets. Maybe it was fall? 


The-Annabeths-Alexandra-Daddario-and-Alisha-Newtonpercy.jackson2cb1

After looking for more movies that followed this trend, I stumbled upon Annabeth Chase in the Sea of Monsters movie. She’s not wearing 2 jackets but a long-sleeved flannel and a jean jacket which is already pretty thick. Considering this movie look place in the summer because they are going to camp I don’t know why both Percy and Annabeth are wearing heavy jackets. Also, they put young Annabeth in the exact same outfit even tough it was also summer when she was wearing it because she was running away to go to camp!

And the trend continues with a look similar to Annabeth’s, on Clary Fray in City of Bones. Though I have not yet seen the movie, I have read the book and can’t remember if it look place in winter or not but I seriously doubt all theses movies did. Though the outfit does look cool in the movie and in the picture on the left, on the right you can see that she’s wearing a flannel with yet again a jean jacket.

I read this book on Valentines Day last year and thought it was so cute and such an easy read! When I found out it was going to be adapted into a movie I was filled with giddiness because I knew it would be so fun to watch these characters interact on screen. And a plus: Hailee Steinfeld will star in the movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Robert Sheen,who acted as Simon in the mortal instuments movie: City of Bones will  play Haillee/Hadley’s love interest. The Director and Screenwriter is Dustin Lance Black. I will update anymore cast members and crew whenever more are added! Read the book soon if you haven’t already and check out more of Jennifer E. Smith’s books<3

jenny han

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.  

(Goodreads.com Summary) 


This book has become one of my favorites especially in contemporary and romance and the prequel book to this one P.S I Still Love You is worth a read as well. The movie rights have been bought by Will Smith’s film company Overbrook Entertainment. Th Script will be written by Annie Neal who is best known from the movie Beauty Queen. I’m so excited for updates on this movie and have already fantasized a cast for it, which I may make a post about soon! if you are also excited leave a comment so I know i’m not alone<3
