Florence Pugh has booked another book-to-screen adaptation set in the 1800s!

The 25-year-old actress is set to star in The Wonder, based off of the 2016 novel by Emma Donoghue, Deadline reveals.

Set in the Irish Midlands in 1859, The Wonder “follows an English nurse, Lib Wright (Pugh), who is summoned to a tiny village to observe what some are claiming as a medical anomaly or a miracle – a girl said to have survived without food for months. Tourists have flocked to the cabin of eleven-year-old and a journalist has come down to cover the sensation.”

Sebastián Lelio is set to direct with production beginning in August in Ireland.

This is Florence‘s second adaptation set in the 1800s in recent years. She starred in Little Women in 2019, with the plot set in 1868.

Becky Albertalli is turning another one of her books into a movie!

The “Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda” author will be seeing her second book “The Upside of Unrequited” adapted to a film, Variety reveals.

The movie follows “awkward 17-year-old Molly, who has had 26 crushes and exactly zero kisses. She’s sure love confessions can only go one way for weight-challenged girls: utter humiliation. Now that her twin Cassie is swept up in her first romance, Molly has never felt more alone. Finding a place in Cassie’s new world feels impossible, especially with her adorable co-worker Reid making things more confusing.”

Hillary Shakespeare and Anna-Elizabeth Shakespeare will write and direct the YA adaptation, with Becky serving as an executive producer.

“‘The Upside of Unrequited’ is so close to my heart, and I’m so happy and grateful this adaptation is in the hands of filmmakers who so deeply understand the complexity of love, longing, friendship, and sisterhood,” Becky shared in a statement. “The Shakespeare Sisters are masters of earnest, funny, heartfelt coming-of-age stories that never shy away from the beautiful messiness of love in all its forms. I can’t wait for my readers to fall in love with Molly in a whole new format, 27 times over.”

Becky‘s debut novel “Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda” was adapted into the film Love, Simon, which also spawned the spinoff series Love, Victor on Hulu. If you missed it, find out when season two premieres!

But as Becca and her classmates wait for her teacher to arrive, a menacing voice comes over the intercom claiming to be the Game Master! The kids quickly discover that the Game Master has locked the doors, scared off the teachers, and made it clear that if Becca and her friends don’t solve the clues that have been left behind, they’ll never get back Becca’s irreplaceable zoetrope, never finish summer school, and never get to enjoy what’s left of their summer vacations.

Becca doesn’t know who is behind this, but she won’t let the Game Master win. But will she and her classmates be able to work together to solve the puzzles and escape their school before time runs out? Join YouTube’s favorite mystery solving team as they go toe-to-toe with the Game Master in the first book of this action-packed series from beloved YouTube creators Rebecca Zamolo and Matt Yoakum aka MattySlays, stars of the hugely popular Game Master Network.

Netflix Picks Up TV Adaptation of Graphic Novel 'Heartstopper'

Netflix Picks Up TV Adaptation of Graphic Novel 'Heartstopper'

Netflix is working on an adaptation of the graphic novel series “Heartstopper“!

It was just announced that the streaming service has landed the eight part series, based on the novel by Alice Oseman, Deadline reveals.

If you didn’t know, “Heartstopper” started out as a webcomic in 2016, before being turned into a YA graphic novel in 2018.

There are currently two volumes out now, with the third book being released on May 4th.

Heartstopper follows “Nick and Charlie, two British teens at an all-boys grammar school. Charlie, a high-strung, openly gay overthinker, and Nick, a cheerful, soft-hearted rugby player, one day are made to sit together. They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn’t think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them realized. Heartstopper is about love, friendship, loyalty and mental illness. It encompasses all the small stories of Nick and Charlie’s lives that together make up something larger.”

“I feel incredibly lucky to get to work with a team of passionate, creative people who all adore ‘Heartstopper’ and want to make it the most beautiful show we can,” Alice said in a statement. “It’s a joy and an honour to get to re-tell Nick and Charlie’s story for TV and I am so excited to share it not only with Heartstopper’s existing readership, but also a whole new audience around the world.”

Alice will write the episodes, and Doctor Who director Euros Lyn will direct the series.
