Two of my favourite books are being converted into movies, again.
First is Dorian Gray, coming out in september and starring Ben Barnes
( remember him as Prince Caspian?)
Judging by the trailer, they've already made quite a few changes,
and scrolling through all the forums not many people are happy with it.
A few include Dorian's appearance,
(he's meant to be blonde & blue eyed)
and the invention of a new character Emily Wotton,
who is a main love interest? totally weird
Also the trailer just seems a little cheesy,
i don't know whether its the music or colin firth, but it just doesnt look too appealing
Anyway im hoping that the movie will be good,
its always a shame when you read an amazing book,
then watch the movie and its so bad that it leaves a horrible memory burn
Second book to film which im really really
looking forward to is Brave New World
Ridley Scott is set to direct which is awesome
considering he has directed other major sci-fi movies
(bladerunner/alien) and Leonardo DiCaprio is set to star
Rumours were circulating around last year
that DiCaprio wanted to play John The Savage,
which i thought didnt really suit
since the character is a young guy and leo not to be mean
but he isnt exactly that young anymore.
Although now, apparently he will be playing a different character, Bernard.
Anyway can't wait to see what happens
when this movie finally gets a move on to be made,
which wont be until Scott's finished with Robin Hood
also, to this day i still think that leo is the only guy
who was able to pull off the mushroom haircut,
but that could just be me?
