I love keeping up with the news from the upcoming film adaptations of some of my favourite books, and this week there have a been a few stories to get excited about!
Firstly, this article on Variety states Shailene Woodley has been cast as Tris Prior in the film adaptation of Veronica Roth's Divergent. What do you think of the news? Do you think she'll make a good Tris? Find out more about Shailene Woodley's previous roles here on IMDB. The article also goes on to say that Lucas Till, Jeremy Irvine and Alex Pettyfer are rumoured to be testing for the role of Four.
Meanwhile, the first images are emerging from Catching Fire! This article on Hypable features pictures of Finnick, Katniss, President Snow, Prim and Katniss' mother, Haymitch, Plutarch, and of course Gale and Peeta (phew - that's a lot!). I had some reservations about the picture of Katniss and Finnick and what it implies, but as it's taken out of context it's impossible to tell what's happening. I just hope people don't misread that photo!
With a lot of film adaptations scheduled to be released this year (City of Bones, Beautiful Creatures) and more like Divergent which are just starting out, there should be a lot of news this year. I can't wait!
