In early December it was announced that Taylor Lautner landed the lead in Incarceron – the movie to be based on the popular book by Catherine Fisher.
The story of the Finn, the teen raised in a futuristic prison, he discovers a way to communicate with Claudia, the daughter of the Warden of Incarceron.
So who is going to be Claudia? Deadline is reporting that Emma Watson, Blake Lively and Jennifer Lawrence are the top three contenders for the coveted part.
Watson just finished the Harry Potter films and has a small part in the upcoming My Week With Marilyn. Lively will be in the Seth Rogen superhero flick Green Hornet (and of course on Gossip Girl). Lawrence was in Winter’s Bone last year and is rumored for a part with Jackson Rathbone in the upcoming Truckstop.
What do you think of these three choices to play opposite Taylor? Any other suggestions?

Lily Collins has grabbed up a role in big screen adaptation of YA novel City Of Bones. The Blind Side actress has just landed the deal to star in the film that Scott Charles Stewart will direct. Stewart and Collins have worked together before on the clergyman- turned-vampire-hunter movie Priest, starring Paul Bettany and Cam Gigandet.
While the original article doesn’t say specifically which role she has (it says only “set to star”) I believe that means Collins will have the Clary Fray role (not Isabella Lightwood.) She definitely fits the physical description of Clary – 15 year old, red hair and freckles – more than Isabella.
Along with Priest, Collins also has Abduction with Taylor Lautner coming out in 2011.
I love Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series and look forward to more casting on this.

Australian actress Mia Wasikowska has the title role in the upcoming film Jane Eyre, the classic Charlotte Brontë novel brought to the big screen. The script is said to focus heavily on the Gothic undertones of the story. Wasikowska is costarring with Michael Fassbender and Dame Judi Dench as Mrs. Fairfax.
Based on Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel, the romantic drama stars Mia Wasikowska (“Alice in Wonderland”) and Michael Fassbender (“Inglourious Basterds”) in the lead roles. In the story, Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester. The isolated and imposing residence – and Mr. Rochester’s coldness – have sorely tested the young woman’s resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned. As Jane reflects upon her past and recovers her natural curiosity, she will return to Mr. Rochester – and the terrible secret that he is hiding…
The movie is due out March 11, 2011. Check out the trailer below. Read more »

The final book in The Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay, hits bookstores today, August 24th! Finally!
Author Suzanne Collins post-apocalyptic world filled with the fight-to-the-death battles forced upon the chosen teens every year is the most anticipated book this summer.
Rebellion, dissension, independence, political intrigue and big-brother-is-watching themes filled The Hunger Games and it’s second book, Catching Fire, with tension and suspense. Mockingjay will bring it all to a conclusion.
But don’t despair, it’s not really over – Collins will be adapting The Hunger Games for the big screen as Lionsgate Films is planning the movie to be epic.
Who’s buying Mockingjay today? How much do you love this series? So awesome! Who do you think should play Katniss (I think Saoirse Ronan or Malese Jow - yes I know Malese is a bit older but still – she’d be great!) and Peeta in the movie?

The Vampire Diaries characters are going to have their histories told in new novels starting this fall. Stefan’s Diaries Vol 1: Origins is the first of a planned trilogy to hit the shelves in November. The books will focus on the civil war era, when Stefan Salvatore (played in the TV show by Paul Wesley) and his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder) became enthralled with Katherine Pierce (Nina Dobrev) the seductress that eventually made them vampires and turned them against each other.
The show is based on books written by LJ Smith and the timeline of the characters is very different. This will be a great way to bridge the gap that fans of both the original story and the TV show have.
Origins is due in bookstores November 2nd and the next book, Bloodlust follows on January 4, 2011. Original author Smith is working on a spin-off series focusing on the character Damon and the final book finishes up March 15, 2011.

Author Nicholas Sparks‘ novel The Lucky One is headed to the big screen with Zac Efron as the lead.
Although still in negotiations to join the film, Efron may play the lead of a US Marine who makes it through the war in Iraq thanks to a photo of a girl he’s never met; his lucky charm. When he gets back to the States, he vows to find her (and presumably fall head over heels in love…)
Zac is piling on the projects. Along with TLO, the Charlie St. Cloud actor is itiching to join Die In A Gunfight, as an attorney who falls in love with the daughter of his father’s nemesis.
Check out all the other potential Efron goodness coming soon from his production company Ninja’s Runnin’ Wild by clicking the link here.

Logan Lerman, who plays the title role in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief is set to take on mythological creatures big and small in the upcoming movie. As Percy, he is beset by troubles every year at school until he learns why – he is a half-blood hero, son of Poseidon, one of the gods of Mount Olympus. Being set up as a thief of Zeus’ powerful lightning bolt, Percy and his friends Grover (Brandon T. Jackson) and Annabeth, (Alexandra Daddario) travel across the country to clear his name and avoid a war between the Greek gods. Unfortunately for them, monsters line up to try and thwart his quest. This movie featurette gives us a glimpse at some of the battles Percy and The Gang will face.
The books by Rick Riordan are great! The movie looks fantastic. Chris Columbus is directing (Harry Potter 1 and 2) and has Pierce Brosnan as the centaur, Chiron and Uma Thurman as Medusa. I can’t wait to check it February 12, 2010.
