Do you remember About a Boy? Remember how amazing that one was? Yeah, you should be excited about this.
CHEEKBONES AND LANA! ALL HAIL!
In honor of the film’s 75th anniversary, the Academy Awards is set to honor The 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz.
As The Wizard of Oz is my favorite film of all time (threeway tie with Jurassic Park and Back to the Future, natch), this is literally the BEST NEWS OF ALL THE NEWS.
No word yet on what exactly that tribute is going to look like, but you can bet there will be plenty of tears on my end. DEAL WITH IT.
The Oscars airs on ABC on Sunday, March 2.
That’s his outfit! That’s his outfit!
Shiny boots, snazzy coat. What do we think? It seems mature like him, but still with a ‘whimsy with a get down to business attitude’ kind of vibe.
Now if only we could see what his sonic screwdriver is going to look like!
Below are a few quotes taken from an EW article with the film’s director Phillip Noyce, and executive producer, Jeff Bridges. I put them here for you to do with them what you will. I am skeptical, to say the least, but hopeful because I have been waiting years for a film adaptation of this book.
“The movie will not be an exact duplication of the book. It’s taking a lot of licenses,” says Bridges. The Chief Elder (played by Meryl Streep, Bridges’ first choice for the role), for example, takes on a more significant role than in the book.
Jonas has been aged to 16-years from the book’s 12. “I originally kind of balked at the idea of making the lead character older,” admits Bridges. Even we were skeptical of the decision. Noyce was more on board, and says that their take is just another interpretation of Lowry’s world. The change also allowed them to heighten the stakes. “In the book, the younger pubescent Jonas has a flirtation with a young girl of his age. That’s almost a love affair in the film,” explains Noyce.
“The past is considered to be potentially polluting,” says director Phillip Noyce. “This is a world where complications are eliminated. Jonas himself goes on a journey as he finds out what’s missing. He starts to investigate what’s causing it. And that’s the beauty. That’s what makes the book so popular, it’s an investigation in ways of living.”
Sure, I guess creative licenses almost always have to be taken when adapting an award-winning, generation spanning, universally beloved book. OH WAIT THEY SHOULDN’T BE BECAUSE THE SOURCE MATERIAL IS ALREADY PERFECT.
But whatever. Yay.
