Just under the wire this year.
I really liked the first How to Train Your Dragon. It was cute and it was fun. Cute, the sequel had. Fun, more or less. But it was still missing something.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words:
Apparently Jeff Bridges has been trying to have The Giver turned into a movie for the better part of two decades. Originally, he wanted to have his father in the eponymous role. He even apparently went so far as to have a version filmed somewhere, although so far as I know that version has never been made publically available.
I wonder if that one diverged so much from the book?
