A Couple of Exciting Prospects

Posted by prla1983 on April 30, 2007 • 0 commentsEmail This Post

There's at least two new movies that have caught my eye. One has just come out stateside and is called "Next". Featuring the great Nicolas Cage alongside the equally great Julianne Moore, it's (yet another) adaptation of a Philip K. Dick work, in this case the short story "The Golden Man". I remember having read it off of this anthology about a year ago but honestly it has quite evaporated from my mind. I know I enjoyed it at the time though.

If Dick is one of the most adapted authors in history of movies and fiction, what can you say about Stephen King? I wonder who counts the most adaptations. This new one, "The Mist", I'm actually excited about because it will be directed by Frank Darabont, the fantastic director who also did my favorite movie of all time and the mildly interesting "The Green Mile", both King's adaptations. Incidentally, IMDb also tells me that Darabont will also be doing Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451 come 2008.

And I still haven't seen "The Fountain" and "Inland Empire". Damn!
