What are YOU looking forward to this week?


CBS Films is adapting Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. This modern-day version will be called Oliver Twisted. [HR]

David Fincher may direct the adaption of Gone Girl produced by Reese Witherspoon. [HR]

Ron Howard may possibly direct Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book as a live-action feature. [HR]


World War Z, based on the book by Max Brooks, will be released in theaters on June 21, 2013. The film stars Brad Pitt and Mireille Enos. [x]

Well, that concludes this edition of Scooping The Screen. I hope to have additional editions out regularly.


  1. Here's some more news on OLIVIA TWISTED:

    Also, DO NO HARM, Jekyll & Hyde, premieres on the 31st.

  2. I love how Hollywood keep turning books into movies or shows. Seeing your favorites on the big screen or television is always exciting (if it's done well) because it makes it feel that much more real. The one I'm most excited about is Delirium! Thanks for sharing.

    Peace & Love

About Us

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Once upon a time, there were two sisters -Susan and Shauna - who were moved and mesmerized by stories through any medium, since they were teeny tiny. This passion stayed with them throughout adulthood, and after becoming even more enthralled with Young Adult fiction in recent times (and some Adult & MG!) they decided they just had to open up their own book blog and share their enthusiasm with the world, or well, to anyone who would listen.
