The Buzz: Divergent Movie Update

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.

Neil Burger
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 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?

PS - Has anyone seen The Perks of Being a Wallflower? It's not playing in any of the theaters near me :( Super bummed! 
Is it good??
