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.
