The Fault in Our Stars is definitely a book and adaptation on everyone’s radar. Stephen Chbosky is fresh off his directorial debut of The Perks of Being a Wallflower which has similarities to The Fault in Our Stars and would be an excellent choice to direct the film.

After seeing a tweet between Stephen Chbosky and Scott Neustadter, one of the writers for The Fault in Our Stars, it made us think of all the wonderful reasons Chbosky should direct the film.

He Understands the Material

Stephen Chbosky wrote realistic teenage fiction so raw and real that it still resonates with today’s youth. While The Fault in Our Stars isn’t considered controversial it is definitely weighty material that if not handled correctly will not translate to screen. Chbosky has an ability to understand teenagers and tell their story in away that translates to all ages. The Perks of Being a Wallflower was about being a teenager and trying to find your way through life’s most unexpected turns. The Fault in Our Stars deals with knowing your life is limited and making the best of it while still dealing with normal teenage stuff.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is amazing

Have you seen it? If not get yourself to a movie theater because you are missing out on one of the year’s best films. Yes, Chbosky was the author, writer, and direct of Perks but that just proves he can handle the material in all forms. Chbosky managed to elicit stellar performances from the young cast especially Ezra Miller who should be nominated for an Oscar. Again, it goes back to Chbosky understanding the plight of the teenager.

He understands how to transition a book to film successfully

Stephen Chbosky is an author, screen writer and director. He understands all facets of taking a novel and making it come alive on screen. As reader’s we all know that not every book adapted into a film is a good choice (Eragon anyone?) but in the hands of the right person an adaptation can capture the essence of the book and take the movie to the next level.

Just for reference, here is the tweet about his meeting Neustradter. Again there is nothing there to indicate he is looking to direct the film but it would be an amazing combination.


The Fault in our Stars is a book that is beloved by teenagers and adults. John Green’s writing is realistic and dares to address issues that most would either shy away from or make sound far too much like a Nicholas Sparks novel. Stephen Chbosky would handle this project with care and be able to keep the realism and witty humor balance to the story.

‘Galavant’ cast thank fans for #MoreGalavant campaign

"So just dance, dance, dance."

Galavant may have been axed over on ABC, but the fans refuse to stop the beat — and the cast are getting down to it!

There’s nothing worse than seeing your favorite show cut off in its prime, but if there’s one thing that fans do best in moments of crushing adversity, that’s come together and use their voices in a cacophony. And Galavant fans? They want a third season of their little show that could and are campaigning for it to return.

That campaign has not escaped the notice of the cast, who came together to thank the fans in a video that you can’t help but move your feet to — and the rest of your body.

“It warms the cockles of my heart to see everything you’re doing to save our beautiful little show,” Timothy Odmunson says, at the top of the video — right before it launches into Justin Timberlake’s newest hit, “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” and we’re treated to a montage of familiar and brand-new footage from Galavant’s stars.

Karen David (Princess Isabella), who has also been vocal on social media about the #MoreGalavant campaign, leads the charge — and has printed out everyone’s contributions so far. But don’t worry, she planted a tree to make up for all the paper that was used. Also shaking their tush is Genevieve Allenbury, who played the Queen of Valencia throughout Galavant’s two season run.

Other familiar faces from the cast include Robert Lindsay, Ben Presley, Mallory Jansen, Vinnie Jones, and Muzz Khan. Not to mention the titular hero, Joshua Sasse.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Galavant without some cameos — and this thank you video is no exception to that. Making their debut are Billy Boyd (of Lord of the Rings fame), holding a sign that proclaims, “You can’t eat this Hobbit!” and Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, with his own “Galavanterrific” sign.

And, what better way to close out the video than with an appearance from Weird Al. “Well, that should definitely do it,” he proclaims. “I can’t imagine any network not picking up this show now that it’s a hashtag campaign. Feel the power of the hashtag!”

So, Galavant fans, get signing and start dancing. And here’s hoping Tad Cooper breathes fire again — be it on the stage, or screen.

This week’s twist on Game of Thrones was one for the show’s history books, and now the fans and creators are acting on their emotions.

Sunday’s Game of Thrones found Hodor dying (dammit Bran) as he held back the army of wights by holding the door. A significant death like this one naturally became a big topic of conversation online, with fans coming up with adorable yet depressing tributes to Hodor.

For example, viewers have been creating Hodor doorstoppers:

Interestingly, we couldn’t find any Hodor doorstoppers for sale on Etsy. Get on that, people!

Others have added Hodor to the ‘hold door’ button in their local elevator

On last night’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ showrunners DB Weiss and David Benioff ‘apologized’ for killing Hodor — but not for the reason you think:

Starz has decided that their original programming can compete with the other hot shows airing on Sunday nights.

Network CEO Chris Albrecht has told THR that they are planning on moving all of their original shows including Outlander, Ash Vs Evil Dead, and Black Sails — which currently air on Saturdays — to Sundays. The move will begin July 17 with the Starz series Power. Outlander will likely not move to Sundays until next season.

“Sundays are a prestige night and we feel our shows are definitely going to be very competitive, not just in viewership but in the attention-getting business on Sundays,” Albrecht said to THR, “So it made sense to move.”

Outlander and Starz’s other original series will be going up against tough competition, including AMC’s The Walking Dead and HBO’s Game of Thrones. Albrecht says part of the reason he wanted to move the shows was to make sure they were part of the watercooler talk on Monday mornings.

THR notes that Showtime’s original series typically get DVR’d, “growing 214 percent [in viewership] during the course of a week.” This would suggest that a lot of people aren’t sitting in front of a TV on Saturdays and want to watch the shows on a different day of the week. So, moving their programming to Sundays may not impact overall viewership numbers much.

Starz recently overtook Showtime as the second-most subscribed to cable channel. HBO still sits at number one, though all three are facing tough competition from Netflix.
