    They kind of look alike. I’m not sure if I want to see this book being adapted, though.

    I think they will do a decent job, I just hope that the rumor of the author doing the writing and directing is true.

    Oh YAY!! She finally confirmed it! I can’t wait to see the movie.
    She’s going to be awesome as Sam and it’s such a different role for her.
    I can’t picture Emma Watson smoking at all and Sam is a chain smoker.

    I can’t wait to see who they cast as Patrick and the other characters.

    @Amanda Dubs:

    @Amanda Dubs – yes the Summit Entertainment press release confirms that Stephen Chbosky is directing the movie based on his own script. And in an interview from last yr, Logan Lerman said it’s one of the best scripts he’s ever read. I think the project is in good hands

    Ireally don’t want to see this book turned into a movie and I don’t see Emma = Sam but I guess if Stephen Chbosky is okay with it, then it’s got to be okay – although I don’t know how much of a say the director/writer has in casting?! hopefully a lot. Logan though could make a fantastic Charlie – can’t wait to see who they get for Patrick and Bill – my creative writing prof would be a shoe-in for Bill

    @BloodbuzzOhio: At first, I thought the same thing, but whenever I found out that the author wrote the adapted screenplay and is directing it, I change my mind. The author has full creative control over the movie.

    Logan Lerman is a self-hating Jew. “My grandfather had to leave his home”, gee, Logan, did he go on Safari in China, shooting down pandas from trees? Idiot and Holocaust denier, that’s what you are.
