David Slade to Direct Big Screen Adaption of Matched

The best selling Young Adult book, Matched, just got a director for its screen adaptation. Here's the publisher's description of Ally Condle's dystopian novel over at Barnes and Noble.
Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.
The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.
David Slade who directed The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and 30 Days of Night got the helming gig. He looks like a tough customer.


My question: who should play Cassia?

  1. I really enjoyed Matched but I haven't read the second novel yet. I'm sure i'll watch the move.

    1. That happens to me with trilogies sometimes. I loved Hunger Games but I still haven't tackled Catching Fire or Mockingjay. Hmmm. Guess 'tackled' is the wrong word; they are such easy reads.

  2. I hadn't heard this news yet--thanks for keeping me up to date on all of the books-into-movies news!

    I liked the Crossed/Matched books and I look forward to the next one. They may be my favorite dystopian books after The Hunger Games.

    Instead of getting an already-known actress to play Cassia, Ky, and what's-his-name, I'd much rather see some new, talented faces on the screen.
