I think most of the updates in this post are quite old now and you've probably heard all about them by now, but just in case anyone hasn't, here's all the updates (that I can remember) since the end of August (I think that's when I last did one of these).
- Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson were cast as Christian and Ana in the Fifty Shades of Gray movie.
- Jamie Blackley and Liana Liberato have been cast as Adam and Kim in the movie adaptation of If I Stay (with Chloe Moretz as Mia, Mireille Enos as Kat).
- Odeya Rush was cast as Fiona in the movie adaptation of The Giver by Lois Lowry. Taylor Swift was also cast as Rosemary. Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes will be playing Jonas' parents.
- There's been quite a few Mockingjay casting updates, including Stef Dawson as Annie Cresta and Julianne Moore as President Coin.
- Jennifer Lawrence will be playing Cathy Ames in the new adaptation of Steinbeck's East of Eden (directed by Gary Ross - and the two are going to be working together again on a movie adaption of Hannah Kent's novel, Burial Rights too).
- Flowers in the Attack remake/new adaption finished filming, so I guess that means their cast list is complete too.
- There was some casting updates for the movie adaption of Gone Girl by Gillian Flinn.
- Harrison Gilbertson has been cast as Cameron in the movie adaptation of Fallen by Lauren Kate.
- Death Comes to Pemberley mini series trailer was released (sort of, it's the BBC's Autumn drama trailer and DCtP is included). It's a spin off of Pride and Prejudice based on the novel of the same name by P. D. James. The trailer also shows a preview for the second series of The Paradise which is based on the novel Au Bonheur des Dames by Emile Zola):
- The trailer for Disney's Frozen was released, and I suppose this sort of counts since it's loosely based on The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson (I've seen a lot of complaints about the trailer, but personally I think it looks pretty awesome).
- John Green has been posting a bunch of videos and pictures from the set of The Fault in Our Stars (the videos have really made me adore the cast).
- The Book Thief movie poster was released.
- A new still from The Vampire Academy movie of Rose and Dimitri training was released. I think there was one of Jesse released too...*finds it*...yes, yes there was.
- I'm not sure if I've mentioned this one before, but Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier was made into a movie. It was filmed in German (German title is Rubinrot), and they're making the sequel now too. There's an English dubbed version of the trailer and I think there's a dubbed version of the movie available too? People on tumblr say there is, so maybe the German DVD has that option? It looks quite good. I've been wanting to see it since I first saw the German trailer.
- This one is definitely older news, but I don't think I mentioned it before--Life After Life by Kate Atkinson movie rights were bought by Lionsgate.
- J K Rowling is writing a script for a movie based on her Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them companion book to the Harry Potter series.
- Selena Gomez talks about the Thirteen Reasons Why movie adaption (her production company owns the rights and she'll be playing Hannah).
