After months of hoping and praying that this would happen, We Were Liars by E. Lockhart has finally sold film right bringing it one step closer to actually possibly becoming a movie in the next few years. I have been praising this book up and down since I read it back in February and I tell anyone I can to read it. When they ask what it’s about, I say, “Just read it.”
Deadline announced the deal.
In competitive bidding, Imperative Entertainment has acquired the bestselling E. Lockhart book We Were Liars. The author has written the feature script. Imperative’s Bradley Thomas, Zak Kadison and Dan Friedkin will produce and production veep Justin Catron will be co-producer. Imperative was formed in March by Thomas, Kadison, Tim Kring and Friedkin, the latter of whom is financing the venture.
Wait, what was that?! “The author has written the feature script.”
E. LOCKHART WROTE THE SCRIPT. This could turn out to be phenomenal!
We Were Liars is “the coming-of-age story of a 17-year-old girl who survived a horrible accident at her family’s summer home two years ago that she cannot remember. She returns, determined to remember the details of her accident but as the pieces start to come together, she discovers not only the painful truth of that night, but a shocking revelation about herself.”
This book still remains my favorite book that I’ve read in 2014 so far. And the chance to see it come to life as an adaptation makes me so happy. I just hope they do it justice.
The past week has been back-to-back Insurgent casting news. With production on the second film in the Divergent franchise starting very soon, it’s about time we’re seeing so many names pop up. And with Divergent sweeping the box office this past March, it’s no wonder that those cast are some pretty big names.
First off, we have Naomi Watts, who has landed the role of Evelyn, leader of the Factionless, in Insurgent and two Allegiant films.
Next up is Daniel Dae Kim who has been cast as Jack Kang, representative of the Candor Faction. You may recognize him from his work on Lost and Hawaii Five-O.
And lastly, up-and-coming actress Rosa Salazar has been cast to play Lynn.
Lynn is a Dauntless born. The first thing that Tris notices about her is her shaved head. In Divergent she is the second in a group of Dauntless born initiates.
She is kinda mean to Tris, though in Insurgent they get better acquainted.
Lynn blames herself for her sisters paralyzation. She has a sister – Shauna and a brother – Hector. She is Marlene’s best friend. She was unhappy with Marlene and Uriah’s relationship – and in the book it was revealed it’s cause she had a crush on Marlene. (via Fangirlish)
Insurgent hits theaters March 20, 2015.
Remember a few months ago when the first trailer for ‘The Giver’ released and while it looked decent, fans were outraged that it featured not one scene in black and white as the book is clearly ALL ABOUT THE LACK OF COLORS? Well, this week, a new theatrical trailer was released featuring both B&W and full color scenes. Finally, this looks like a movie I’d watch. Because after watching that first trailer, I laughed at it. I really did. But now, I feel slightly better about the whole movie. Check out the trailer below and see for yourself!

About ‘The Giver’:
This film, based on Lois Lowry’s book, tells the story of a perfect world. Everyone here is happy. When Jonas is 12 years old, he’s chosen to be the community’s Receiver of Memories. He enters into training with an old man called The Giver. From the Giver, Jonas learns about pain, sadness, war, and all the unhappy truths of the “real” world. He quickly realizes that his community is fake. Confronted with this reality, Jonas faces difficult choices about his own life and his future.
Are you excited or nervous to see ‘The Giver’?
The new If I Stay trailer features the prologue from the novel by Gayle Forman. I love it so much! #AlltheFeels is the correct hashtag for this series and I’m so glad the film is taking Gayle’s novel so seriously. And the music choice is perfect. Good job all around.
