Adaptation

September 20th, 2007 at 5:31 pm

Because news of Sean Penn playing Harvey Milk in a Gus Van Sant-directed adaptation is simply not enough Sean Penn, this Friday will see the release of Sean Penn’s adaptation of Jon Krakauer’s “Into The Wild.”

And watch out for the upcoming silver screen adaptations of the uber-popular The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini and Ian McEwan’s Atonement.

And following his performance in the very good A History of Violence, which was an adaptation of the graphic novel, Viggo Mortensen is set to appear in the silver screen interpretation of Cormac McCarthy’s outrageously successful “The Road.”

The talentless Hollywood leaches are hard at work suckling from the brilliance and craftsmanship that is the book world. Too bad “we” can’t make any money off it.
