@Woodstock:  I was actually wondering the same thing. I’m still going to watch it though. Ha! Will you watch it?

The how is more mysterious by far than the why.  $$$$$$$

@Woodstock:  I haven’t read it, and I won’t read it, but I imagine they will butcher it the way they do, and then make it into a passably similar movie.  

They are making a movie version of the Giver…have you read that?  It’s like the complete opposite of 50 Shades of Grey.  It won the Newbury in 1994.  Anyway, if you’ve read it, you’ll know why an attempt at making it into a movie will take the most skillful filmmakers there are…and they’re not using them.  =(

They’re probably going to have to add a lot of backstory orr it will just be 88 minutes of nonsense.

@peachacid:  I read the giver in grade school.  I think the movie is a bit bittersweet.

@MASPA:  Taylor Swift is going to play Rosemary.  Rosemary was 12. Taylor Swift is like 21?  The actor they chose for Jonas is 24.  

 

What the FFFFFFF.

I’ve never read the book, and will probably never see the movie.  However, if they make a 50 shades of grey porno, I’ll laugh.

@Woodstock:  They’ve already effed up by casting as they did.  Jeff Bridges is the Giver and Meryl Streep is the Chief Elder, but seriously…Jonas is supposed to be 12 years old when he starts his training.  12.  TWELVE.

@Woodstock:  They’re going to ruin the Giver completely.  Taylor Swift?????  Also, Jonas is 12 in the book.  The actor who’s playing him is like 24.

50 shades is a porno.

that’s the point.

they’re going to disguise it as a film.

as for the giver, i hate seeing classic books ruined by movies. taylor swift is not an actress. she’s barely even a singer.

@peachacid:  I read all that too.  The only plus I think will be that the effects will be pretty good. lol
