The Hollywood Reporter has the latest on the casting of the film version of Patrick Ness’ A Monster Calls. Sigourney Weaver has now joined that cast that also includes Felicity Jones and Liam Neeson. Weaver will be playing the grandmother, Jones the mother and wonderfully, Neeson will be the monster. Juan Antonio Bayona will be directing the Focus Features film.
It’s an incredible read, so I hope they do it proud and keep the truly frightening aspects of the book without making the child character older.
The writer of Disney’s hit movie Frozen has signed on to pen the screenplay of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic science fiction book A Wrinkle in Time. At this time, there is no director assigned to the project, though it does have producers.
It will be very interesting to see what Disney does with A Wrinkle in Time. Here’s hoping that it keeps its scientific, questioning wonder without going all soppy on us.
Here is the official teaser trailer for Mockingjay. Love the change in feel that matches the third book.

Here’s the first full-length trailer for the new movie version of Paddington. I must admit as a Downton Abbey fan, I’m so happy to see Hugh Bonneville in this. Yet it seems to have a very different vibe than the books by Michael Bond. I think I have to see more before I make a decision about it:
So what do you think?
Hurrah for black and white!
Warner Bros. has announced that JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts will be released on November 18, 2016. This is the first film in a new trilogy based on Rowling’s textbook that is 54 pages long. It’s going to be fascinating to see how they pull a movie out of that book!
