As well as a book geek, I also count myself as a movie aficionado. And what can be better than news on books and movies? News on books being made into movies of course!!
For those of you who are also movie enthusiasts and do not yet know about Comingsoon.net you really should, it is an incredible source for all movie news. Anyway, the past couple of days there has been some good news regarding books being made into movies.
1. The upcoming release 'Legend' (which I featured as my Waiting on Wednesday this week) already has a director for its movie adaption, Jonathan Levine. Also, the Twilight Saga's Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will produce it.
2. Andrew Niccol has signed up to direct the movie adaption of 'The Host' by Stephanie Meyer. He originally wrote the screenplay while someone else was set to direct it, but now it seems he has returned to the project.
3. Lastly, 'The Hobbit' which is being made into a two part movie adaption released a ten minute video on the last touches of their pre-production. (Out of all of these, I think I am most excited about this).
