With the "Twilight" series' end set to leave a massive hole in Summit Entertainment's slate and bottome line, the studio has been scouring the globe for adaptations in an attempt to retain the loyal young adult/teenage market it has garnered. One particular upcoming adaptation though -- which the studio picked up earlier this year -- looks to be bringing in all the right talent to attract that very market. Author Stephen Chbosky's adaptation of his own novel, "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower," has 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson and 'Percy Jackson' star Logan Lerman in the lead roles with Mae Whitman ("Arrested Development") also on board.

Summit knows the tween market better than anybody else these days and with their mad money franchise "Twilight" drawing to a close, they're trying to find other ways to lure that all-important dollar from young moviegoers. They picked up the adaptation of "The Perks of Being a Wallfower" during Sundance earlier this year, and now it's gearing up to shoot and has added another cast member to Emma Watson and Logan Lerman who were first attached last spring.

In what's been a more lively market for acquisitions than in recent years (albeit with few "Happy, Texas"--style big money sales), pictures such as "Like Crazy," "Homework," "Marcie Martha May Marlene" and "The Ledge" have all found homes, along with documentaries "Life in a Day" and "Page One."
