Perks of a Wallflower movie coming up!

I guess by now Stephen Chabosky's Perks of Being a Wallflower is starting to become a classic in the world of books (and yes I do not know how many of you read or planned to read this book.) So it wasn't very surprising that now they're making a movie! And yes, Logan Lerman

(you know... Percy Jackson) and Harry Potter movie fans (yep this gal),

you WILL be pleased!

"Emma Watson and Logan Lerman are in negotiations for the two lead roles in John Malkovich’s adaptation of the novel “The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Filmstage shares:

Stephen Chbosky, author of the same-titled novel published in 1999, will be directing from his own script with Lianne Halfon, John Malkovich and Russell Smith producing.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower tells the story of a shy, unpopular teen who assumes the alias “Charlie”, who narrates his life and the happenings of his high school through a series of letters to an anonymous person. The book caused some controversy amongst parents who disliked its frank treatment of some heavy issues including suicide, drugs, and sex. It will be interesting to see how these issues are dealt with in the film and whether they will be just as controversial on screen."
Well, it seems like one depressing book. However, like I said before, Watson DID grow as an actress in the HP movies, and certainly better than the likes of Vanessa Hudgens and Miley Cyrus who seem to be taking over the book adaptation movie world lately. It's now official that Logan Lerman is going star. I have not seen him in Percy Jackson although I did hear that he was pretty good. Plus, all I got to say to John Malkovich: BRING IT ON!! He already made a bad choice to star in Eragon, let's see how he fare with this! :)

oh GAWWWWD the stupid Percy Jackson movie!
Hmm, not sure what to think of wittle Wogan being in this. I could care less about Emma Watson. But yeah, my brothers and I were definitely not allowed to read this book. I didn't even know what it was about, but I just remember Mom pointing to it in a bookstore and saying "If I ever find out that you've read this!!"
Did you read it?

Well, now it's on my to-read list. And yeah, Emma Watson isn't my favorite actress in the whole entire world, but hey! At least it isn't Vanessa Hudgens or even worse, Miley Cyrus. BLECH!!!
