What would Anne Rice do?
Anne Rice, the author of “Interview With a Vampire” and its sequels, has decided that her Christian faith no longer fits with the Christian church. She announced this very personal decision on Facebook on Wednesday, generating more than 2,000 comments on two posts that went up within five minutes of each other.
In the first, she wrote: “Today I quit being a Christian. I’m out. I remain committed to Christ as always but not to being ‘Christian’ or to being part of Christianity. It’s simply impossible for me to ‘belong’ to this quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious, and deservedly infamous group. For ten years, I’ve tried. I’ve failed. I’m an outsider. My conscience will allow nothing else.”

Chloe Moretz Has Her Eye On The Hunger Games Film Adaptation
Ever since finishing Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games and the sequel, Catching Fire, I’ve been filling the time until the August 24th release of the third and final installment, Mockingjay, by keeping a close eye on the reported Hunger Games movie. Unfortunately, every since that special Scholastic event, there’s been zero development.
During that event not only did Collins give some folks a sneak peek at Mockingjay, it was also announced that Lionsgate hoped to have a director for the film adaptation by the summer and to go into production in January 2011. Clearly part one never happened and I have a feeling the second won’t either. But of course, that doesn’t mean the project is a dud; good things take time. So, in the meantime, a few sites out there have been speculating on who’ll lead the film as our heroine, Katniss Everdeen.
Suggestions have included Ellen Page, Camilla Belle, Kristen Stewart, Malese Jow, Jodelle Ferland and even Megan Fox. Some of the suggestions floating around aren’t half bad, but there’s one name missing from all of these lists that should be at the top, Kick-Ass’ Chloe Moretz. In fact, the young actress wants it herself!
