Merry Christmas-Eve and welcome to another round of books into movies news :D

Last week had some huge movie news, but today we're reporting on two more! According to Deadline, the popular sci-fi Unwind by Neal Shusterman has finally been optioned for film by Constantin Films! And Divergent has scouted it's locations for filming. Continue reading for more details!

Unwind by Neal Shusterman (OPTIONED to Film)

Unwind (Unwind, #1)

Connor, Risa, and Lev are running for their lives.

The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child "unwound," whereby all of the child's organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn't technically end. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state is not enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape and to survive.

I'm pretty surprised that this book has taken this long for the rights to be bought. It's a big hit on the sci-fi front and according to a friend, it's a fantastic read! The producers will be Robert Kulzer and Martin Moszkowicz. I'm really looking forward to seeing who they get to write the script.I think Neal Shusterman would be a fantastic screenwriter since he has experience writing TV and movies

Divergent by Veronica Roth (LOCATION for Filming)

It's already known that Shaliene Woodley will play the coveted role of Tris in the new Divergent movie. They're down to four guys for Four. Yes, the irony isn't lost on me. According to The Chicago Sun Times, Divergent filming will be located IN CHICAGO! That may seem like a no duh moment, but believe me that very few movies actually film in the city they're supposed to be set in. It's fantastic news that the movie will actually be shooting in Chicago since the city is a major landscape for the book. It's on the right track!

Now we just have to wait for news about who Four will be. Hopefully soon since filming is scheduled for sometime in 2013.
