ESPECIALLY SINCE MAGIC MIKE COMES OUT TOMORROW! *belts out “Moves Like Jagger” while dancing and flailing about*
Wait… oops. *ahem* Sorry. That’s not where I was going with this.
On a more relevant note, I’ve got some movie buzz to share! Let’s start with Alyson Noel…
Noel announced via her Twitter feed that all four books of the Soul Seekers series have been optioned for movies! The four books in the series include Fated (just released on May 22), Echo (to be released in November 2012), Mystic, and Horizon (no info on those two yet, but estimated release dates are 2013). Make sure you add these to your “To Read” lists! You’re going to want to know this books as details on the movie(s) come out!
Now on to Cassandra Clare and the Mortal Instruments movie.
Jemima West, AKA Isabelle Lightwood
We already know Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower will play Clary and Jace, respectively. What you may or may not know about the casting is that Jemima West has been cast as Isabelle Lightwood. Recently, Cassandra Clare answered several fan questions related to the movies on her Tumblr and provided some tidbits:
- Alec has been cast, but the information has not been released yet. Clare has NO IDEA when she will be able to release the aforementioned info. *sad face*
- Simon has not been cast, but casting for his role will start around mid-July.
- Max will not be in the first movie, staying true to the original Mortal Instruments storyline.
And we have some Beautiful Creatures fun, too!
As per Kami Garcia’s blog, the BC movie has officially wrapped and is looking at a potential release date of February 13, 2013. For more info about the casting, check our previous post here, and pop over to Kami Garcia’s website to see some pics taken by the actors/actresses on set and in and around New Orleans! I love the shot of the Gatlin Public Library sign! (Clearly I’m a nerd through and through, but I feel at this point that goes without saying).
Lastly, in Hunger Games news…
As many of you may already know, Gary Ross will not be coming back to direct Catching Fire. *sobs uncontrollably* Instead, Francis Lawrence will be stepping in to direct the sequel to our beloved Hunger Games. Lawrence is known for directing Water for Elephants, I am Legend, Constantine, and music videos for JLo and Britney Spears. All I have to say is… DON’T DO US WRONG LAWRENCE. Or you will find a very angry mob outside waiting for you as you walk to your car at night.
All that being said, I have one last request:
PLEASE DO NOT END IN DECEMBER.
