YA Movie News Roundup: Eddie Redmayne Is Our Newt Scamander

The Oscar winner will be in JK Rowling's FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM. Plus more 50 SHADES, an imminent PAPER TOWNS trailer, a MOCKINGJAY PART 2 poster and more!

YA Movie News Roundup: Eddie Redmayne Is Our Newt Scamander

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

Eddie Redmayne has been cast as Newt Scamander in JK Rowling's upcoming Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. Redmayne's good casting because a) he's a wonderful actor and b) his face looks kind of magical and otherworldly. Harry Potter alum David Yates will direct, and this will be Rowling's first screenplay.

Lumberjanes is going to be a movie!

EL James isn't done with Fifty Shades yet - she's rewriting the series from Christian Grey's point of view. Including here because this will probably be a movie again at some point.

The Paper Towns trailer debuts during Pretty Little Liars tonight - stay tuned for FYA's writeup!

Love this new Mockingjay Part 2 poster.

Sofia Coppola is off the live-action Little Mermaid movie, which is kind of a bummer. 

Ransom Riggs talks Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine movie and debuts the cover for Library of Souls. FYA review here.

Not quite YA but relevant to our interests: 

Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon and Selma Blair had the most awesome Cruel Intentions reunion/girls night, in which SMG and Selma recreated their kiss because they know what goes viral. Reese's face is MY FAVORITE.

 

 

Best girls night of the year!!! #cruelintentions

Juicy, behind-the-scenes of The Bachelor fiction UnReal debuted on Lifetime last night, and I wrote a preview piece about it. Posh has seen this show and heartily endorses it!

And finally, Dance Academy re-cuts of The Duff and If I Stay trailers:

That's it for this week - give us your thoughts downstairs!
