HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY Film Casting ALERT?!?!

"Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins's groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year."

Rumor has it that the brilliantly brilliant & awesome Rebel Wilson, who will be hosting this years MTV Movie Awards(!!!) is up for the role of the costume shop owner of the Capitol, Tigris, who helps Katniss take down Prez. Snow!!

(Reminder--Tigris had her face stretched and tattooed with black and gold tiger stripes, her nose was flattened until it barely exists forming a short snout.)

This. Is. Perfect.

I hope it is true and that it actually happens.

Love the books and the films!!

What do you think??

Is Rebel perfect??

Even though Morgan's older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him.

DIVERGENT CASTING NEWS!! Tori, Christina, Caleb and FOUR?!?!

 
"From the brink of apocalypse, humanity has reorganized itself into five factions, each of which uphold and live by a single core value. Those who believe society fell apart because of greed formed the faction of Abnegation (the Selfless), sworn off of practices considered self-indulgent and pledged to act selflessly. Those who believe the collapse was due to ignorance pledged themselves to the Erudite (the Intelligent), sworn to a never-ending path of complete knowledge acquisition. Those who feel that human duplicity wreaked havoc in the world took the banner of Candor (the Honest), pledging to always speak their minds and the truth. Those who feel that aggression was the root of society’s collapse became the members of Amity (the Peaceful), taking the mantle of peace at all costs. And finally, those who feel that the root of all their problems stemmed from cowardice formed the tribe of the Dauntless (the Brave), the faction of the courageous and strong."

James Dashner THE MAZE RUNNER Film Gets Cast!!?

"Hollywood’s dystopian treasure hunt is now in full swing. After “The Hunger Games” yielded $408 million in box office spoils, studios are scrambling to be the first to serve up a cinematic meal that satisfies that cross-generational audience hungry for more high-stakes post-apocalyptic adventure placing a group of plucky teens in peril.

It now looks like the upcoming adaptation of James Dashner’s The Maze Runner has made significant strides to challenge its competition, with yesterday’s announcement that “Chronicles of Narnia” star Will Poulter has boarded the elevator down into the film’s labyrinthine underworld. Poulter will play the bestselling book’s protagonist, Thomas, a memory-wiped teen who lands among a group of sixty boys who have spent two years learning to survive in an alternate reality known as “the glade,” which takes the form of a maze from which there is seemingly no escape. Thomas takes it upon himself to re-examine clues and gather the information necessary to attempt to lead the pack of lost boys out of captivity. . .Read More"
Have you read The Maze Runner??

Series Reveal: THE LOST SUN by Tessa Gratton!!

The Lost Sun (The United States of Asgard #1)

"Fans of Neil Gaiman's American Gods and Holly Black's The Curse Workers will embrace this richly drawn, Norse-mythology-infused alternate world: the United States of Asgard. Seventeen-year-old Soren Bearskin is trying to escape the past. His father, a famed warrior, lost himself to the battle-frenzy and killed thirteen innocent people. Soren cannot deny that berserking is in his blood—the fevers, insomnia, and occasional feelings of uncontrollable rage haunt him. So he tries to remain calm and detached from everyone at Sanctus Sigurd's Academy. But that's hard to do when a popular, beautiful girl like Astrid Glyn tells Soren she dreams of him. That's not all Astrid dreams of—the daughter of a renowned prophetess, Astrid is coming into her own inherited abilities.

When Baldur, son of Odin and one of the most popular gods in the country, goes missing, Astrid sees where he is and convinces Soren to join her on a road trip that will take them to find not only a lost god, but also who they are beyond the legacy of their parents and everything they've been told they have to be."


Sounds awesome!!

Bad series title. Sounds like an SNL parody.

Is Star EMMA WATSON Leading DISNEY'S CINDERELLA?!?!

"Emma Watson may get fit for a glass slipper after all. Four years after Watson was loosely attached to star in a musical version of the classic fairy tale "Cinderella" for Marilyn Manson (file under: things that were real), Variety reports that Watson is in "very early talks" to play the role in a new film from Kenneth Branagh. Cate Blanchett would play Watson's evil stepmother.

Fairy tale adaptations were all the rage after Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" exploded at the box office in 2010 (the film earned over $1 billion worldwide), but the recent adaptations have been hit and miss. Released last summer, "Snow White and the Huntsman" was a big success (nearly $400 million in global ticket sales), but other films like "Mirror Mirror" (based on Snow White) and "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" have failed to connect. "Jack the Giant Slayer," a new take on "Jack and the Beanstalk," is out Friday via Warner Bros., but the film is not tracking to earn much more than $30 million on opening weekend, a pittance compared to its massive budget.

Watson has kept very busy since playing Hermione in the "Harry Potter" franchise. She was praised last year for her role in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and stars next in "The Bling Ring" from director Sofia Coppola. Watson also filmed a role for Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" (due in 2014) and is attached to play the co-title character in "Beauty and the Beast" for director Guillermo del Toro. That film would shoot this year.

For more on Watson's "Cinderella" role, head over to Variety." huffingtonpost.com

Emma was already set to play Belle in the Beauty and the Beast film by Guillermo del Toro meant to start filming this summer, which I was huge fan of 'cus del Toro is amazing, but now I'm not so sure what is really happening.

hmmm.

I prefer Emma as Belle, but if she lands the Cinderella role, that should be cool as well!!

What do you think??

Is Emma the perfect Cinderella?

The perfect Belle??

None???

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS News: 'RED COAT' Will Be Reve'A'led!!!?

Get ready to meet “Red Coat”! As you can see in this exclusive photo from Pretty Little Liars‘ March 19 season 3 finale, the ever crazier and crazier Spencer (Troian Bellisario) meets the until-now elusive “Red Coat” face-to-face for the first time. The details around her meeting with “Red Coat” are sketchy, but the show’s actors and producers have already heavily teased to EW that crimson-hooded spook largely factors into the season’s denouement.

On the subject of “Red Coat,” Bellisario says: “There is something about her that is so familiar that it’s almost more frightening than ‘A,’ which is a completely new terror.” Maybe that explains Spencer’s stunned look in the above photo? “There’s something about ‘Red Coat’ that they all recognize about their past. There’s some kind of haunting to it — not to say that there’s a supernatural element — but the girls are all kind of getting that feeling from it, that it’s more frightening than ‘A.’ This must be one person, and we must know them.”

Is “Red Coat” the “A” team captain? Is she CeCe (Vanessa Ray)? She’s “who you think it might be, yes,” says executive producer Oliver Goldstick, but “it’s not definitive. The finale is a shocker.” Lucy Hale — who plays Little Liar Aria — adds that the hooded villain “could be the keeper of a lot of answers and a lot of things that they’ve been searching for.”

Who do you think it is??

Alison's twin???

Alison herself??

Mona's twin???

Spencer's mutant half sister named Specker???

"This exciting finale to Lauren Oliver's New York Times bestselling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States.

Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight.

After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven. Pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels.

As Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain of the Wilds, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena and Hana's points of view. They live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

With lyrical writing, Lauren Oliver seamlessly interweaves the peril that Lena faces with the inner tumult she experiences after the reappearance of her first love, Alex, the boy she thought was dead. Sophisticated and wide-ranging, Requiem brings the Delirium trilogy to a thrilling conclusion."
