'Perks of Being a Wallflower' release date: Emma Watson and Logan Lerman hit screens this September
Now, it's finally got a release date: Fans of the iconic novel can see it all play out on the big screen on Sept. 14, 2012. Written and directed by Chbosky himself, the film is sure to be a faithful adaptation.
Chbosky had to go to bat for the movie when it was originally slapped with a crippling R rating from the MPAA. After an appeal, the organization agreed to reduce the rating to a PG-13. They cite "mature thematic material, drug and alcohol use, sexual content including references, and a fight - all involving teens" for the rating.
