Summit Entertainment (June 5, 2012) Critically acclaimed novel, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, has been made into a film via Mr. Mudd Productions. Making his writing debut in 1999 with the book, Stephen Chbosky was placed on board the project to adapt his coming of age novel, which was published by MTV. Wallflower is the tale of a teenager named Charlie (Logan Lerman) anxious about starting high school after losing his best friend to suicide.
The film trailer reveals that Charlie mostly spent the summer with his family, but promises himself he’ll try his best to have new experiences in high school. At first, high school isn’t really terrific for the teen, as his only friend seems to be his English teacher and is picked on by one of his classmates. He then meets fellow misfits Sam (Emma Watson) and Patrick (Ezra Miller) who welcome him into their circle and expand his view of the world.
Wallflower, after a struggle with The MPAA succeeds with the PG-13 rating. The film was originally rated R for drug and alcohol usage, along with sexual references among minors, however the decision was reversed after a plea from Chbosky and Eric Feig, Lionsgate‘s president of production, in order for the film to be presented to their targeted demographic.
The trio of stars presented the trailer at the MTV Movie Awards this past Sunday, and considering how the novel was published by the same company and the popularity it holds for young adult readers, it won’t be surprising to see it considered for an award at next year’s awards ceremony.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is directed by Chbosky and produced by: John Malkovich, Russell Smith, Lianne Halfton, and will be distributed through Summit Entertainment. See it in theaters September 15, 2012.
