The latest news!

Epic Reads presents the cast for the Netflix adaptation of Tiny Pretty Things.  Unfortunately, the cast looks quite a bit different from the books, suggesting the show will create its own storyline instead of adapting the story from the real story.  Got to say, I’m really disappointed by this.

Another “adaptation” that will actually be telling an original story is the upcoming Fear Street movies.  I kind of expected this from day one, and I’m still hoping for an anthology show that adapts the actual books.  As for the movies, they will apparently be telling a story that spans several decades, which I’m more than a little apprehensive about.  The Fear Street books that stood out for me were the ones that didn’t have much (or any magic), or focus on the history of the Street and the Fear family.  It seems like the movies are going in the opposite direction, but we will have to see what happens when they actually come out. In the meantime, here is an article from I09 about the series.

The Fandom reveals another potential adaptation, which also seems poised to be taking a significant departure from the source material, Lauren Oliver’s Replica.  At least I don’t remember Lyra being a clone of Gemma?  The site also announced the cast for the There’s Someone Inside Your House.

Meanwhile, Penguin Teen suggests some books that could make for excellent adaption fodder.  One of the suggestions is Lies You Never Told Me by Jennifer Donaldson.  Admittedly, this is one instance where I wouldn’t mind an adaptation making a significant change to the source material, as I had some issues with the book’s ending.

Meanwhile, Deadline reports that an adaptation of the Jessica Darling books is being set up, while The Fandom notes that we could see a One of us is Lying series on NBC Universal.  I09 reports a deal between Netflix and Dark Horse, but nothing secific about any upcoming projects.

Finally, Spoiler Tv reports a new adaptatiton for Brian K. Vaughan’s Paper Girls comic, while I09 insists the Y:  The Last Man adaptation is still moving forward.
