Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movie, Starring . . . You?

Diaryofawimpykid_130 “But the truth is, when they make a movie or a TV mini-series about me, they’ll probably just skip right over the middle school years and go right to the part where I’m famous. Seriously, who’s gonna want to see a movie about a guy who’s stuck in middle school with a bunch of half-grown morons?”

Well, 20th Century Fox is counting on LOTS of people seeing a movie about a kid stuck in middle school (whether it’s filled with half-grown morons is yet to be seen). They’re making Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series into a movie! The quote above is part of Greg’s opening dialogue, and he’s totally wrong — because those middle school years are exactly what the movie is about.

How did I get a quote from a movie that’s not out yet? This is really cool — Fox is doing on online casting call for the main character, Greg Heffley. They put the first scene of the movie up on their website and are having kids submit audition tapes online. Then anyone who visits the website can watch the audition tapes – kind of like American Idol for male actors age 10-13, except it’s not on television and you can’t call in and vote and there’s no Simon Cowell (thankfully!) or Paula Abdul and . . . Okay, so maybe it’s nothing like American Idol. But some guy out there is going to go from regular middle-schooler to movie star. And I hope he’s keeping a diary (or as Greg would insist, journal) in case someday someone wants to make a movie about when he became famous!

And for all those Wimpy Kid fans who aren’t wannabe-movie stars, Jeff Kinney has more Wimpy Kid books planned — one that will be out in the fall of 2009 and one in 2010, which will hold you over until the movie comes out. If you’re not a fan of the series yet, you should be. Check out this video trailer for the books and go get reading!

    I read the books and loved them. Can’t wait for the movie to come out. The movie is due out March 19, 2010. You can watch the trailer on numerous websites.
    Trailer is great! It’s very funny and the movie should be very entertaining for the whole family. This movie should be one of the best for 2010. Also, I heard there is a new book coming out March 16, called the “Wimpy Kid Movie Diary”. This book is coming out just before the movie opens. It’s all about the making of the movie from the first book, and how they picked the cast with behind the scenes pictures and stories. I will add this to my collection of Wimpy Kid Novels. Can’t wait!

    The books rock! The trailer for the movie is hilarious…so I think the movie is going to be a big success for kids and adults. I read the books and saw the trailer. The kid that plays Greg (Zachary Gordon)is adorable and does a great job as Greg in the trailer. No doubt this will be one of the big hits of this year.

    The voice for Greg in the trailer is so dumb you can tell its a man trying to make his voice sound like a seventh grade boy’s. The narrator voice sounds like the one on those dumb summertime movies. The books are good though but i only read it on funbrain and it shouldn’t be live action because the comics make it funny. =]

    I think the movie will be great. Im not anywhere near Holly Wood, but I think I would be a great side charactor! And yes, I think the trailer they had at the beginning was bad. I hate it when they have adults pretending to be us kidz/teens. My friends say i would make a great Holly Hills, but Im not into girly pink stuff.

    thats so cool how they are going to make a movie!!!!! but i recondmend the movie being animated, because its going to be way cooler than REAL ACTORS!!! And since they’er going to make a movie out of a book, animation will make the movie feel like the book.

    Are you kidding me? It’s live-action? In my opinion, that’s going to pretty much ruin it, since what I liked best about the book was the writing style and the little comics/drawings. They should just do the movie animated, in the drawing style… this sounds just like another middle school drama that’s trying desperately for laughs. >_<
