YA Movie News Roundup: Scott McCloud’s THE SCULPTOR Will Be A Movie

Welcome back to the YA Movie News Roundup! Let's hop to.

Sony has nabbed the rights to Scott McCloud's graphic novel The Sculptor, with Scott Rudin (The Way BackCluelessNo Country for Old Men, a million other titles) producing. 

“The Sculptor” centers on a young man who has made a deal with Death to sculpt anything he can imagine with his bare hands. Complications arise when he meets the love of his life with 200 days to live.

Did you know that Fifty Shades easily passed the Bechdel Test? I know, I never would have guessed, either! Also author E.L. James is insisting on penning the screenplay for the sequel. 

Universal's producing an adaptation of Newbery winner The Princess in Black, by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale. Sounds cool: 

The heroine is Princess Magnolia, who by day wears the obligatory flouncy dresses, but by night becomes the Princess in Black. The book marries the princess tradition with the superhero genre, a wish-fulfillment tale for contemporary young girls who like their pink dresses and tea parties with a side of combat boots and riding into battle on horseback.

Dr. Seuss returns

Emma Thompson might join Emma Watson (and maybe Ryan Gosling?) as Mrs. Potts in the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast! Trelawney and Hermione, together again.

Insurgent is getting even weirder with some virtual reality.

Rainbow Rowell talks about writing the adaptation of her own Eleanor & Park. Read the FYA review here

In not YA but relevant to our interests news: 

OH HEY, Empire Records is gonna be a real place where you can hang out for a couple of days!

Tonight the final two episodes of Parks and Recreation air, and I said a long, teary farewell to my hero Leslie Knope over at Badass Digest.
