Remember my review on One Day by David Nicholls? And I mentioned that it’d probably be made into a movie?? The rumours were true!!
Got it from here:
After announcing numerous projects in development, Random House Films has greenlit a project, with the film adaptation of David Nicholls’ One Day going into production on July 12. The film unit, formed between RH and Focus Features, has a number of projects in the development stage–including an adaptation of Beth Raymer’s Lay the Favorite (Spiegel & Grau) and Arthur Phillips’ The Song Is You (Random House)–but, so far, only the partnership’s launch feature, the adaptation of Reservation Road, has made it to the screen.
One Day will be co-financed by the British film unit Film4 and the feature stars Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe); it’s being directed by Lone Scherfing (An Education). Nicholls also wrote the screenplay for the project, which follows 20 years in the lives of a British couple that meet on the day of their college graduation in 1988, and the book is being published by Vintage in trade paper on June 15. The film adaptation is scheduled to release in 2011. PW noted in its review that the work always seemed Hollywood-bound, that while the “maudlin ending aren’t ideal for a book, they’ll play in the multiplex.”
Doubt I’ll be watching it. But if my hubby drags me along,….then, no choice haha 😛
