Four More Films Coming to the Screen in 2017

Four more films to add to the list of books coming to the screen in 2017. Can you tell which one is on my personal must see list? 


March 3: Before I Fall


Based on the YA book by Lauren Oliver, the movie stars Zoey Deutch and Jennifer Beals. 
“February 12 is just another day in Sam's charmed life until it turns out to be her last. Stuck reliving her last day over one inexplicable week, Sam untangles the mystery around her death and discovers everything she's in danger of losing.’’




May 5: The Dinner


The Wall Street Journal called The Dinner by Herman Koch "a European Gone Girl". Two couples meet over dinner, behind the polite surface chatter is the fact that the couples both have 15 year old sons who have committed a horrendous crime. Over the course of the evening the dinner devolves illuminating just how far parents will go to protect their own children. The film stars Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Steve Coogan, Rebecca Hall, ChloĆ« Sevigny, and Charlie Plummer. No poster yet so I’m sharing this shot of Richard Gere, aging gracefully. You’re welcome!


May 12: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword


The Sword in the Stone, retold, again. We love Arthur and Merlin and all that magic, don't we? Guy Ritchie is behind this iteration of the legendary tale Le Morte d’Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory. Charlie Hunnam stars as Arthur, the cast includes Jude Law, Eric Bana and Annabelle Wallis.


May 19: Everything, Everything


Based on Nicola Yoon's book about a young girl allergic to ... yep ... everything, everything, the movie stars Amandla Stenberg who you may remember as Rue from The Hunger Games. While Maddy has lived a sheltered life, mostly confined to her home, her world changes when a cute boy moves in next door. Awwww. Nick Robinson plays cute boy Olly Bright, the boy next door. Here they are together in a shot the author shared from the movie.



Did you guess which movie I’m most looking forward to.
If you guessed The Dinner starring Richard Gere, you guessed right. I’m a fan. He’s one of those actors I came of age with; in fact I had a little fun with a birthday message to Gere a couple of years back.

  1. I love getting all of my book-into-movie news from you. I’m pretty psyched about The Dinner. I thought that book was really good, though I needed a shower when I was finished reading. I read Everything Everything and didn’t like it much -- I have the feeling that I’d enjoy the movie more than reading the book for that one.
