★ Hungry to know…who should play Katniss? While some are counting down the days until August 24, 2010, the day that Suzanne Collins’ Mockingjay, the Final Installment in The Hunger Games series, will officially go on sale; others are eagerly awaiting the film adaptation that is scheduled to begin production in early 2011. The question is…who will be cast in the role of sixteen-year-old Katniss? MTV has selected three young starlets who may be perfect for the role – Malese Jow, Jodelle Ferland, and Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario. Now they want your input to uncover the perfect person to play the raven-haired Katniss! MTV.
★ ‘Twilight’…the credit card? If you thought that the world couldn’t get more Twilight obsessed what with the movie posters, memorabilia, clothing lines, films, and books…you were wrong. MasterCard and Summit Entertainment have banned together to bring you Eclipse-themed gift cards and prepaid credit/debit cards. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse MYPLASH Prepaid MasterCard will be available nationwide starting July 1, 2010 (one day after the film release of Eclipse) and will be offered in nine styles – Edward, Bella, Jacob, Rosalie, the entire Cullen Clan, the Wolf Pack Family, the Volturi Men, and two varieties of the Twilight Trinity (Bella, Edward, and Jacob together). The card is said to teach financial responsibility to teens in a fashionable way. Cullen Boys Anonymous.
★ On stage with Bridget Author Helen Fielding struck gold when she thought up the character of British Bridget Jones. Since her debut in 1999 via the tongue-in-cheek chick lit work Bridget Jones’s Diary, she has been a fan favorite; going on to star not only in a literary sequel – The Edge of Reason – but films based on both titles, as well. Now it is said that Bridget will be taking her place onstage via a play adaptation of the Fielding novel; and rumors are swirling that songstress Lily Allen is currently working on the score for the musical. The Guardian.
Over to you…are you a fan of The Hunger Games? Who do you think would be the perfect person to play Katniss and why? What do you think of the Twilight-themed credit/debit/gift cards? Will you be getting one? Do you think that they have gone too far with Twilight-themed memorabilia – why or why not? What do you think of adapting a book for the theater? Are you a Bridget Jones fan?
