Happy Birthday, Neville Longbottom! (July 30)
Edgar Wright is set to direct an adaptation of the Andrew Smith Dutton young adult novel Grasshopper Jungle.
Edgar Wright is wasting no time in moving on from his much discussed departure from Marvel’s Ant-Man.
On Tuesday Wright picked his next film: Baby Driver. The film was described as being “a collision of crime, action, music and sound,” and would close out his two picture deal with Working Title Films, the prior being his 2012 picture The World’s End, the third film in his Cornetto trilogy.
Today Deadline is reporting that Wright is set to direct Grasshopper Jungle, an adaptation of the acclaimed young adult novel by Andrew Dutton Smith.

Happy 31st Birthday Harry James Potter! (July 31)
Mugs to read with:
On this day in 1818, Emily Jane Brontë was born in Thornton, West Riding of Yorkshire, England — the fifth of the six Brontë children, three of whom will grow up to write fiction.
“I have to remind myself to breathe — almost to remind my heart to beat!”
―Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
George R. R. Martin everyone.
My favourite thing about this gifset is that George R. R. Martin acknowledges both of these methods without insulting or dismissing the other. He is a fantastic writer and I know that some other fantastic writers swear by their methods and discount the others, which can be really disheartening as a young writer. Hearing him describe both of these methods without dismissing the other makes me very, very happy, as I am very much an architect and I always get so sad when every writer I look up to is like “NO PLANNING. PLANNING BAD. WRITERS DONT PLAN.”
So thank you, Mr. Martin.
I am by and large an architect but I am not opposed to my building gaining sentience and doing what it wants along the way, a la a gardener. So I feel this. I feel it so hard. Also:
"No one is purely an architect or a gardener in terms of writers, but many writers tend to one side or the other."
GEORGE R. R. MARTIN, YOU MAY NOT BE PERFECT, BUT THAT SENTENCE IS. THANK YOU.
i am a gardener who has been struggling to explain my methods to all of my architect friends for years, god bless you GRRM for putting this into words
