‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ Trailer Released

The first trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Stephen Chbosky‘s The Perks of Being a Wallflower has been released. What do you think?

Harry Potter star Emma Watson stretches her wings in the new film, and Chbosky and directed the adaptation. Release is set for mid-September. Logan Lerman plays the lead and Paul Rudd took the role of a helpful English teacher. Here’s more about the novel:

Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor. This haunting novel about the dilemma of passivity vs. passion has become a modern classic.  The Perks of Being a Wallflower is the story of what it’s like to grow up in high school. More intimate than a diary, Charlie’s letters are singular and unique, hilarious and devastating. We may not know where he lives or to whom he is writing. All we know is the world he shares. Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it puts him on a strange course through uncharted territory. The world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends. The world of sex, drugs, and music—when all one requires to feel infinite is that perfect song on that perfect drive. (Via Gawker)

‘The Three Musketeers’ Coming in 3D

A 3D film adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ The Three Musketeers will hit theaters in October 14th. The official trailer is embedded above–what do you think?

The film stars Percy Jackson actor Logan Lerman as a young D’Artagnan. Other cast members include Christoph Waltz, Orlando Bloom, and Milla Jovovich.

Last year at Comic-Con 2010, MovieWeb caught up with director Paul W.S. Anderson who promised fans, “We’re being relatively faithful to the book…we’re telling it in a very modern way but it is the classic [Dumas] story.”

Author Stephen Chbosky to Direct Adaptation of His Own Novel

Author Stephen Chbosky will direct a film adaptation of his 1999 novel, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. According to New York Magazine, Chbosky will write the screenplay as well.

Two book-based-movie stars have signed up for this project. Percy Jackson actor Logan Lerman will play the lead character, Charlie. Harry Potter actress Emma Watson will play one of his two best friends, Sam.

In 2009, Chbosky’s book hit the #3 spot on the American Library Association’s top ten most frequently challenged books of 2009. The association listed these reasons for the challenges: “anti-family, drugs, homosexuality, offensive language, religious viewpoint, sexually explicit, suicide, unsuited to age group.” (Via the Huffington Post)
