Finally we're seeing progress on the Divergent movie front! Last week Veronica Roth announced that the official director of the film will be Neil Burger. Pretty cool :) I loved Limitless, so I have high hopes.
She also announced that Shailene Woodley is in final negotiations to play Tris. I didn't know who Shailene was before, but I looked her up. She was in The Descendants (the George Clooney version...for those of you who need clarification on that one *wink*). I watched a few clips of her, and she looks very much like I imagined Tris. The funny thing is, I always imagined Tris with dark hair. To me, she's a great fit. For those of you who imagined Tris how she was actually written (a blond) well, you might have a harder time picturing it.
The countdown begins...how many days until March 21, 2013? Hmmm...still A LOT! Looking forward to more news about the movie though. Not to mention the third book, Detergent ;)
What YA books or movies are you looking forward to?
Hi! I’m the author of the YA paranormal series, CHILDREN OF THE GODS.
I have two boys (ages 2 & 4) which has done wonders for my sound effect skills. I'm now an expert at missile launching & explosion noises...Also, I'm pretty decent at wielding a lightsaber and building lego ships. So be prepared for some kid blogging in between the book updates. My days are spent taking care of munchkins, writing, and running Acorn Publishing, most likely in my pajamas.
