NEW BOOK ADAPTATIONS
WHAT ALICE FORGOT
And I have two updates for you on new big screen book adaptations, starting with Lianne Moriarty's bestselling novel WHAT ALICE FORGOT which will get a movie version over at TriStar with DEVIL WEARS PRADA's David Frankel directing! The story follows a woman who wakes up after a head injury with no memory of the last 15 years. She discovers her once-happy life is gone – she’s now a divorced single mother who must decide whether to start over or fix her relationships.
JOJO MOYES' ME BEFORE YOU
Another novel to get a new life in cinemas is ME BEFORE YOU by Jojo Moyes. To be directed by stage director Thea Sharrock (this will be her movie debut) and set for August 21st 2015 release, the Warner Bros. movie follows Lou, a small-town girl caught between dead-end jobs, and Will, a high-profile, successful man who becomes wheelchair-bound following an accident. Will has decided his life is not worth living until Lou is hired for six months to be his new caretaker. Worlds apart and trapped together by circumstance, the two get off to a rocky start. But, Lou becomes determined to prove to Will that life is worth living, and as they embark on a series of adventures together, each finds their world changing in ways neither of them could begin to imagine. The book has already been sold for translation in over 30 countries!

  2. I've listened to the audio version of WHAT ALICE FORGOT and it was quite interesting. Haven't read ME BEFORE YOU, but Jojo Moyes is a terrific writer.

  4. Me Before You sounds like an inspiring story. I haven't read the book, but it's now on my to do list.

    The only superhero I'm interested in is Thor. And we both know why that is don't we darling :0)

    1. Glad we've found a new book for you, dear :)
      Did you hear that they want to turn Thor into a woman!

    2. I'm all for equality amongst the sexes, but some things are sacred. Thor is a MAN, a hot, sexy MAN. Which we don't have many of. You can't swing a dead cat without coming across a hot babe, but hot men are RARE and should be cherished and loved and protected ;0)

    3. the jury has spoken :)
      Speaking of dead cats, I've just watched an episode of HOARDERS in which some crazy old croon had two dead, totally dried up and pressed cats lying under piles and piles of garbage the cleaning squads took out of her living room..... I'm still shocked..... How can you live with dead cats rotting in your room for years?
