It seems like the in-thing at the moment for Young Adult books to be adapted into movies. First we had Harry Potter and then the Twilight franchise kicked off the trend and now we have had adaptions from The Hunger Games, Beautiful Creatures, The Immortal Instruments - City Of Bones, Divergent, Vampire Academy, The Host and many many more!
Some have been extremely successful; The Hunger Games & Divergent and some not so much; The Host and Beautiful Creatures - I can't say I was a fan of either to be honest, I was pretty disappointed.
I thought I would share with you some of the upcoming Young Adult books adapted to movies that I am especially excited for!
In 2015 we have Lauren Kate's Fallen coming to our screens with Jeremy Irvine and Addison Timlin bringing the beloved Patrick and Lucinda to life. I adore this series so I am extremely excited to see if the movie lives up to the book.
Here's a first look photo of the cast! I wasn't sold on the cast at first but seeing them together I have to say I think it's a good casting.
The Fault In Our Stars has to be one of my favourite books I have read this year so I am super excited for the movie coming from 20th Century Fox in June 2014 starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. Shailene Woodley has already impressed with her performances in Divergent and in The Spectacular Now, so I am sure she is going be an amazing Hazel Grace!
Check out the trailer below!
I haven't read the book yet but I have heard so many good things about it. I know I am going to love it and I can't wait to see the movie! I am a big fab of Chloe Grace Moretz (also rumoured for The 5th Wave movie!) so I am looking forward to see her in another book adaption.
Released In August 2014 by Warner Bros. Pictures
Again another series I haven't read but the movie has a great cast and I cant wait to watch it!
Released September 2014 from 20th Century Fox
And of course we have the upcoming Mockingjay part I and II to be excited for! The first two films have to be two of my favourite book to movie adaptations! Who in the world doesn't love Jennifer Lawrence? She is so down to earth and cool!
Other YA Book being developed/or rumored to be being developed into moves include:
Apart from reading my other passion is film so I am so excited to see these movies and see some of my favourite characters come to life on the big screen!
