Never let me go – the movie (??)
OK, so, maybe you know how much I loved Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never let me go….and now, not 5 minutes ago, I stumble across an article saying they’re turning it into a movie. Starring Keira Knightley of all people (yup, she should do only period dramas & Pirates of the Caribbean) , presented as a sci fi thriller, and probably directed by Mark Romanek – a guy who did mostly videos & a decent enough thriller called One Hour Photo.
Am appalled by all decisions. Am hoping in vain it’s just a crazy rumour (although even IMDB has it listed as a project for 2010, but with no cast yet attached).
But I guess I have to face it: one of my favorite books is about to become a crappy movie 😦
