Oughta Be in Pictures

Via Suite101, comes the news that Jerry Spinelli's Stargirl has had movie rights picked up by Nickelodeon Pictures. No cast announced as of yet. Also, via the Powell's Blog, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, the former web comic by Jeff Kinney has been picked up by Fox 2000. Meanwhile, via Ypulse, Lois Lowery's The Giver movie has been delayed because the director is also directing the final Potter film. From the sound of things, the film will be worth the wait, although the circumstances in which the announcement was made are pretty funny.

By now you've heard about the whole Mary-Kate & Ashley book thing... I love that the working title of the book they're collaborating on is Influence...

The Olsen twins' book is described as "a coffee-table book"....yeeeeahhh.

So how is Suite101's teen fiction category? I used to write a Welsh language/culture column for them.
