I told you back in Septemberthat David Slade had been hired to direct Matched, the film based on the first book in Ally Condie's dystopian YA book series. With The Twilight Saga: Eclipse under his belt he seemed like a good, er... match. But according to the Hollywood Reporter that's off and GI Joe:Retalition director Jon Chu is now said to be in negotiations. That terrifies me and I'm not even emotionally invested in the book; I wonder what her real fans would think. Maybe the fact that he directed Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D makes it okay? Something about dancing ninjas???
In an interview with EW Condy says she gets a lot of letters from fans suggesting who should play the various characters. Logan Lerman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) is a big favorite for Ky, with Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries) leading the way for Cassia. She looks a bit too old in this picture to my mind. What about you? Do you think they're
well Matched? Who would you cast?
