20th Century Fox begins auditions for 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules'

The first adaptation, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, was released on March 19, 2010 and has grossed over $63 million at the Box Office in the USA, and the novel has sold over 28 million copies. That film hits the big screen in the UK on August 27, 2010.

The upcoming second live-action adaptation is about Greg Heffley, his older brother Rodrick, and the school talent show. If the film does well at the box office, it is likely 20th Century Fox will continue the series. Here is a list of Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid novels:

● Diary of a Wimpy Kid
● Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
● Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw
● Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

There is also a "Do It Yourself" activities book, and a "The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary" which is a movie tie-in book about the making of the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie.

David Bowers, who is known for directing animated films such as Flushed Away and Astro Boy, has signed on to direct. This will be Bowers first live action movie.

Rodrick Rules will begin shooting in August, 2010 in Vancouver, and has a release date set for March 25, 2011.
