It was recently announced that HBO is currently working on a feature length adaptation of the modern classic Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. We’ve already seen a trailer released for the film, and now HBO has released a new poster of the anticipated production.
Fahrenheit 451 is set in a future dystopia where books are outlawed and ‘firemen’ are in charge of burning books on mass. The story follows a loyal fireman named Guy Montag who’s convictions are challenged when he begins to wonder if what he’s doing is right.
The upcoming film is set to be directed by Ramin Bahrani and will star Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Black Panther) as protagonist Guy Montag and Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire, The Shape of Water) as Captain Beatty. The film is set to be released on HBO this month on May 19.
Many adaptations have been made- from TV to radio to movies- and now we have something new: a modern retelling of the classic story of sisterly love. Directed and screen-written by Clare Niederpruem with Kristi Shimek, this tale of family, love, and growing up will hopefully spark a whole new generation of Little Women fans.
The movie will star Lea Thompson as Marmee, Sarah Davenport as Jo, Melanie Stone as Meg, Allie Jennings as Beth, Elsie Jones as Young Amy, and Taylor Murphy as Older Amy.
It is released on September 28th 2018.
Based on Pullman’s trilogy of books: Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass, His Dark Materials is a complex tale of theology, physics, and philosophy featuring a range of mythical and mystical beings. It tells the story of two children, Lyra and Will, who wander through a series of parallel universes.
The new eight-part series is to be produced by Bad Wolf in June 2018. McAvoy is set to play Lord Asriel, the father of main character Lyra (to be played by Dafne Keen) and Peters will play the master who raises Lyra.
Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech) will direct the series and it will be executively produced by a host of talent from the literary and entertainment industries: Pullman, Tranter, Gardner, Toby Emmerich and Carolyn Blackwood for New Line; Piers Wenger and Ben Irving for BBC One and Deborah Forte for Scholastic.
