The Giver to hit big screens
Cinema Blend recently posted an article about the Weinstein Company's upcoming film adaptation of Lois Lowry's The Giver, beloved by sixth-grade teachers everywhere (except for those sixth-grade teachers that think it should be burned because of its satanic agenda, of course). The movie will star Brenton Thwaites, Jeff Bridges, and Meryl Streep, and they're hoping to release it in less than a year, which means the producers seriously better get cracking. As the recent flop of The Mortal Instruments proves, young audiences are fickle, and all those Hunger Games-mad dystopia fans only have so much allowance money, so the Weinsteins need to strike while the iron is hot. . . .
