books in film

Besides Harry Potter and Twilight, several other movie adaptations of books are on their way next month.

Julie & Julia opens August 7 and features Meryl Streep as Julia Child and Amy Adams as Julie Powell. The film is based on Powell’s book Julie & Julia and Child’s book My Life in France. It covers their life struggles and kitchen successes.

Powell has another novel coming out in December, Cleaving: A Story of Marriage, Meat, and Obsession is about her experiences as an apprentice butcher.

Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Traveler's Wife is in theaters Aug. 14 and stars Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana.
She also has new novel coming out at the end of September, Her Fearful Symmetry.
