Hollywood Inside Report: The City of Ember – First Look
For reasons I’ve mentioned before on these very pages, I am waiting on the film adaptation of “The City of Ember” with an unusual amount of anticipation. In my opinion, the story will translate very well onto the silver screen. Yes, in the horse race of children’s lit movie adaptations, it’s my pony. I’m putting my faith that the folks guiding this one into theaters are going to come out victorious. We’ll find out for sure when the masses lay their money down on October 10, 2008.
Perusing the wonderful children’s lit blog BookMoot, I was delighted to find a couple recently released stills from the film. Click here to see Bill Murray in the role he was born to play.
