The Perks of Being a Wallflower was, and still is, a huge hit novel with its generation.  It tells the story of an introvert freshman named Charlie who experiences everything from drug use to his best friend’s.  He finally learns how to enjoy life again after being taken under the wings of two seniors, step brother and sister, Patrick and Sam.

The production company (Mr. Mudd) is working with producers John Malkovich, Lianne Halfon, and Russell Smith hired the novel’s author Stephen Chbosky to write an adapted screenplay and to direct the film.

Filming is scheduled to begin next month and we expect this film to be huge.  With names like Emma Watson, Paul Rudd, Nina Dobrev, and Logan Lerman associated with it, you will want to be sure not to miss The Perks of Being a Wallflower.  The film is slated for a 2012 release.
