Welcome to the first edition of my new blog segment called Book to Screen.
This is a meme where I’ll be posting casting news, movie trailers, and images from our favorite YA books that are getting adapted for the large or small screen.
The book I’ll be talking about this time is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Having spent a total of 230 weeks on The New York Times Best Seller List almost everyone has at least heard of this book. While I have yet to read it myself, it has been on my TBR for over a year and is one of my mothers all time favorite books. I had heard it was being made into a movie but didn’t realize how far along things were until the trailer surfaced a few days ago.
Here it is…
The trailer alone is phenomenal, I can’t wait to see the full movie! I’m honestly beating myself up over not reading the book sooner. Don’t worry though, we have until November 15th to fix that!
Lets meet the cast shall we?
Geoffrey Rush will be playing Hans Hubermann
Emily Watson will be playing Rosa Hubbermann
Sophie Nelisse will be playing Liesel Meminger
Ben Schnetzer will be playing Max Vandenburg
Since I haven’t read the book I have no images of the characters pre-existing in my mind. For those of you who have read it, are you happy with the casting choices??
Lastly, here are a few movie stills…
So excited for November 15th!!!
