Thanks to some proxy rules MTV love to use blocking any non American viewer, what we do get is word that very shortly we’ll be treated to new footage sometimes trailers like PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER. Adapted from Stephen Chbosky’s 1999 novel of the same name starring Logan Lerman as Wallflower Charlie a loner whose life takes a drastic turn for the good when he befriends Patrick (Ezra Miller)and Sam (Emma Watson with a American accent).
Whilst we already know how well Daniel Radcliffe has done post Harry Potter (Woman In Black)now it’s time for Hermione Grainger to make her move back into the muggle world in her first non support part. I never heard of the book until the film was announced but reading around about the film it seems this film looks like it will be a honest faithful adaptation of the book but it could fall apart as film and books are different mediums and not all books can be made into films successfully. To work there will be changes to get the film to work which will have the usual bunch who’ll be more critical bringing up the old age theory watch film then read the book.
Perks Of Being A Wallflower also stars Paul Rudd, Mae Whitman, Nina Dobrev, Melanie Lynskey, and Kate Walsh, no release date confirmed for UK & Irish just yet but American release will be 14th September.
