We’ve been talking to a few guys, but only one has really nailed it in terms of a take we all like, but he’s got another movie of his own he’s thinking about I wanted to spitball of a few other choices. The studio are SUPER keen to make this and have a big pot of money sitting there to make the picture. The only real question is who can get the appropriate TONE.
Now let’s be sensible here. Yes, I know the tone is early Amblin and the first thing people will say is Spielberg, Zemeckis and JJ Abrams, but none are available and we’d love to be filming this one at the New Year. With this in mind, who do you love? This book is really, really, really important to me and seems to have really struck a chord with readers. It’s important that the adaptation does it justice. I know that’s ALWAYS the case, but especially so here. I want Huck to just be done perfectly.
