Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment have released big news regarding the science fiction action movie, Ender’s Game, which is based on Orson Scott Card‘s award-winning young adult novel first released in 1985.
Earlier this week, the merged production companies unveiled its new official website for the film at www.if-sentinel.com. Now, filmmakers and cast members are planning to promote the film at Comic-Con International on July 18 in San Diego.
The film is scheduled for opening day on November 1.
Entertainment Weekly revealed the first concept image from “The Maze Runner” movie, which will begin filming on May 13!
The big-screen adaptation of James Dashner’s best-selling novel is set to release in February 14, 2014 (what a great Valentine’s Day outing).
The image of the ever-changing maze is pretty impressive. It’s much larger than I imagined, mostly because I now know what goes in there and this photo makes it seem impossible.
And there’s more exciting news! We know the main cast! After looking up everyone on IMDB.com, I must say the cast looks good. Except for Newt, they are really close to the descriptions I had in mind (even if these kids make me feel old).
Here’s the rest of the cast:
Gally — played by Will Poulter
Newt – who I think looks too young, will be played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster
Chuck – played by Blake Cooper
Minho – played by Ki Hong Lee
Teresa – played by Kaya Scodelario
One more fun fact: The movie is being filmed in my home state of Louisiana!
This morning, Today Show revealed the cover for Veronica Roth‘s upcoming “Allegiant,” the third book in the “Divergent” series. A clip of the show can be found at PerezHilton.com. Roth later revealed it on her blog.
Also, as we have reported, the new Divergent movie is coming out on March 21, 2014.
Well, according to IMDB, the movie is currently filming, and there IS a cast.

Katy and I both read (and loved) Quintana when we did our reviews a few months ago for the Australian release, and I have a reading guide with details on all the books here. For those who have yet to pick up this great series, you have until Tuesday April 30 to get going, and then head over to the Goodreads discussion group in participate in the conversation.
Every year in May, the “Big Four” US television networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX) plus The CW hold upfront presentations to showcase their new shows for the Fall season. Of course, before that, only the most successful television pilots actually make it to a fall order. This year, three shows based on young adult series are in contention, Kiera Cass’s The Selection, Kass Morgan’s upcoming The 100, both at the CW, and Lauren Oliver’s Delirium at Fox.
Pilots for all three shows have all been filmed, and now comes early word on how they’ve been received by the networks. Supposedly, Delirium has had a weaker start over at FOX, and with the the network presumably having only two free drama hours on its fall schedule (the network only programs two hours per night compared to three for the other major networks), things don’t look so great for Lauren Oliver’s dystopian at the moment. Of course, that can all change quickly, like if one of the network’s other pilots fall out of contention, or if one of FOX’s existing shows suffer a sudden and dramatic spring ratings slide that leads to cancellation.
Over at the CW, which has been suffering in the ratings lately and is likely to clean house with its existing shows, both The 100 and The Selection are looking much better. If the CW picks up five of its eight pilots as it has in seasons past, chances are good for both shows.
Finally, speaking of The Selection, sequel The Elite releases at the end of this month.
Ugh, I’ve been so behind on everything that I’ve missed telling everyone about March being Teen Tech Month at the Houston Public Library, where you have a chance to hang out and chat with five famous young adult authors about their new books, past books and their writing.
