I know it's super disappointing when a book you enjoy is turned into a movie that is spectacularly bad (Imma lookin' at you, Congo), but I have high hopes for the following adaptations coming to a theater near you.
Serena by Ron Rash: Not only is this book amazing - greed, corruption, revenge, an epically ruthless female lead - it is going to star that beloved pairing of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. I think we can all agree that having Jennifer Lawrence as your bestie would be pretty rad. Out September 27, 2013.
Horns by Joe Hill: Harry Pot...I mean Daniel Radcliffe returns to his fantastical roots in this psychological suspense from the author of NOS4A2. Ignatius Perrish (perhaps one of my fave names), suspected of murdering his girlfriend, has understandably sunk into a pit of despair. One hungover morning he wakes up to discover he has sprouted horns and developed some serious supernatural powers perfect for exacting revenge. Out October 11, 2013.
Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight: A recent YA crossover praised for the way it handles topics of teenage bullying and mother/daughter relationships. In early stages of production with Nicole Kidman as Kate, a single mom determined to find out the truth behind her daughter Amelia's death. Out Not Soon Enough.
So grab some $32 movie popcorn and enjoy!
