Ansel Elgort to Star in Film Adaptation of the Goldfinch

By October 11, 2017Adaptations, News

Actor Ansel Elgort shot to fame earlier this year for his performance in the hit film Baby Driver. Both bibliophiles and film buffs will be pleased to learn that the talented actor has been cast in the upcoming film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s novel The Goldfinch.

The Goldfinch follows the story of a young boy who loses his mother in a terrorist attack and ends up becoming a criminal with a conscience. The book was published in 2013 and was very well received by critics. It went on to win several prestigious awards, including the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2014.

As Variety reports, Elgort has been cast in the role of Theo Decker and the movie is set to be directed by John Crowley, who’s best known for his film Brooklyn. The film apparently has a whopping budget of 40 million dollars. If the film adaptation is anywhere near as good as the novel, it will no doubt be another great film under Elgort’s belt.

It has been rumoured that Ralph Fiennes is in talks to play Theo’s mentor, Hobie, but this is still unconfirmed. No doubt we’ll hear more on the rest of the cast in the near future. Production on The Goldfinch is set to begin in early 2018.

New Peter Rabbit Movie Coming Soon

By | Adaptations, News | No Comments
“Peter Rabbit now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm. Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.”

Coming soon from Sony Pictures is a brand new animation of Beatrix Potter’s classic bunny tale. Originally due in March 2018, the combined live-action and CGI animated film is now due for release on the 9th of February 2018, possibly as a result of the speed of the production. It seems like a host of stars also voice the characters we know and love.

Eagle-eyed members of the public spotted the film crew in Ambleside and Windermere in the Lake District. A local toy shop was adapted to be Mr McGregors’, which was very exciting for the locals.

Check out the cheeky rabbit’s trailer for the film below!
