Lewis is the prolific writer behind The Chronicles of Narnia and is one of the most celebrated writers in Christian history. Ralph Winter, the producer of X-Men, is heading this project alongside Walden Media (Narnia). Just in case you didn't know, Winter is a professing Christian, so yay for that!
Jeffrey at Looking Closer Journal asked people to post our wish-lists for the film so here's my dream team:
Screenwriters: Charlie Kaufman (Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind) and Zach Braff (Garden State)It's gonna take some amazingly creative minds to pull off The Screwtape Letters as a movie, so if these people don't do it, things could go terribly wrong and that would be a shame, because who wants another another book adaptation gone bad.
Director: Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep)
Actor: Zach Braff as "Wormwood"
Think otherwise? Who would you chose to write, direct and star in the movie?
You can read the full scoop at Variety.com.
And yes, that is a picture of Zach Braff's head on the bookcover. I'm just silly like that.
