Upcoming Movie News and Inspiration

Catherine Hardwicke Will Direct ‘Stargirl’ Adaptation

The popular book that’s on every one’s summer reading list, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli is finally being adapted into a movie! Even better, Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) has just been announced as the director.

THR reports that Hardwicke read the script penned by Kristin Hahn and immediately signed on. This is a great sign that the movie will be just as good as the book! Hahn is also going to be producing the movie, after recently producing the critically acclaimed Cake.

We think Mad Men actress Kiernan Shipka is great for the role of the eccentric high school student, Stargirl. She has the charm, wit, and talent to breathe life into the role!

No matter who they cast, we can’t wait to see this project happen. Catherine Hardwicke, who directed one of the biggest YA adaptions ever, and writer/producer Kristin Hahn are the perfect team to take it on!
