Archive for October, 2010

Here is the October 2010 update on the current status of the “books to film” projects that have been mentioned on this blog to this point. I will attempt to do this once a month in order to follow each film until it reaches the theater/TV/whatever. Please remember that release dates are subject to change, and that sometimes “Announced” and “In Development” films never get made, more’s the pity. (Please note that I update this post during the month as I find new projects, so check back periodically.)

As always, if you have any news about an upcoming book to film adaptation, please comment and let me know.

The current “books to film” list:

1776: In development with a release date sometime in 2011.

Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter: In pre-production with a 2011 release date.

The Tempest (trailer)

Where should I even start on this one? Well, it’s another film adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, but it’s also so very much more. Helen Mirren plays Prospera, Prospero in female form, and the rest of the cast rounded out with all sorts of amazing actors. I suppose that they didn’t have any choice, what with such an amazing actress in the leading role. Also, if the trailer is anything to go by, the visuals are stunning.

…Is it December yet?

Avalon High Trailer

Well, it looks like they’ve changed a few things (not too surprising) but it still looks like the Disney Channel version of Meg Cabot’s Avalon High will be fun. It’s showing on November 12, 2010, so check your local listings for the proper time.

Well, the book came out, and the film isn’t close behind. Looks like it’s going to be quite the ride when it comes out next February.
