Isn’t that how you feel when you find out that one of your favourite books is going to be a feature film?
Well, that’s how I feel.
For the moment, it doesn’t matter if the film lives up to the book (it usually never does) but that anticipation when your imagination envisages how it will play out is just the most wonderful thing. It’s like Christmas Eve or the day before your birthday!
I just discovered that Jonathan Safran Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is coming out in cinemas on Christmas Day this month! Starring Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Viola Davis, Max von Sydow (who I always confuse for Christopher Plummer) and Thomas Horn. Stephen Daldry directs.
