But, I’m actually more excited about another upcoming movie that has been adapted from a beloved children’s book–Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr. Fox! I love this book. The stop-motion film is directed by Wes Anderson and features the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, and Jason Schwartzman.

Tess of the D'Urbervilles Movie!

Tess of the D'Urbervilles Movie!

Tess of the D'Urbervilles PBSI’m stoked! Just found out that PBS has a new film version of Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles in their Masterpiece series. It’s showing January 4-11, 2009 on PBS. Gemma Arterton stars as Tess, Eddie Redmayne as Angel, and Hans Matheson as Alec D’Urberville. Should be interesting to see how it compares to the book.
