Robert Sheehan, who you might remember as Simon from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie, has joined the big screen adaption of Jennifer E. Smith‘s “The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight”, Variety reports.
In the book, Hadley Sullivan is stuck at JFK airport and late to her father’s second wedding…in London…to a woman she’s never even met. But out of nowhere comes the perfect boy. His name is Oliver, he’s British and he’s in seat 18B. Hadley’s in 18A.
As Hadley boards the plane and opens herself up, she learns that today should also be one of the worst days of Oliver’s life. But fate wants what it wants, and Oliver and Hadley go on a journey that reaches beyond 50,000 feet in the air.
The YouTube gurus’ new book will “take readers on a behind-the-scenes journey—candid, heartfelt, and hilarious—filled with absolutely essential advice (and TMI honesty that they will probably regret), including but not limited to the time they met One Direction, excerpts from Phil’s teenage diary, reasons why Dan’s a fail (so far), how to draw the perfect cat whiskers, quizzes, and more. Their struggles and success haven’t changed their strong friendship or their core belief that it’s okay to be weird.”
“Our American followers have been eagerly awaiting this news, so I am immensely happy and excited to announce we’re bringing our book to the USA!” Dan shared in a statement.
Phil added, “We have had an amazing time working on ‘The Amazing Book Is Not on Fire’, and we’re so proud of it! We can’t wait for people to see it in bookstores and hold it in their hands.”
Dan and Phil will also visit the U.S for book signing events — sweet!
“The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire” hits shelves on October 8th in the UK and on October 13th in the US.
Check out this exclusive new trailer for “Descendants: The Isle of the Lost,” the prequel book to the upcoming Disney Channel Original movie Disney Descendants!
Authored by Melissa de la Cruz and out May 5, here’s the book’s synopsis: Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost–a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world.
Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon’s Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress on the far side of the island. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She’ll just need a little help from her “friends.” In their quest for the Dragon’s Eye, these four kids begin to realize that just because you come from an evil family tree, being good ain’t so bad.
“Isle of the Lost” is the spell-binding prequel to Disney Descendants, premiering this summer!
Based on the book by Keira Cass, Deadline reports that Warner Bros has bought the options for the big screen adaption with Black List scribe Katie Lovejoy to adapt.
Set 300 years in the future, “The Selection” is billed as an epic romance centering on a working class young woman chosen by lottery to participate in a competition with 25 other ladies for Prince Maxon’s hand to become the nation’s next queen.
It was just announced that the 29-year-old actress will be publishing a collection of funny essays from Touchstone, and is due out in 2016.
“I’m excited to publish my first book and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I’d like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself,” Anna shared in a statement.
She continued, “And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I’m very, very funny on Twitter, according to BuzzFeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!”
Just one more month before “Dangerous Deception” is out EVERYWHERE and the JJJ Book Club has a special treat…

“Dangerous Deception” summary: Some loves are cursed. Others are…dangerous. Especially the love between wannabe rocker and quarter Incubus, Wesley “Link” Lincoln, and Dark Caster, Siren, and bonafide bad girl, Ridley Duchannes.
But now Ridley is missing, and Link was with her-right up until she vanished. Determined to find her, Link reunites with his New York bandmates and the mysterious Lennox Gates, who wants Rid for himself. Together they travel to the deep south, find the crossroads where blues guitarist Robert Johnson made his deal with the devil, discover a menagerie of Casters locked in cages, and uncover an evil in New Orleans that threatens to destroy them all.
