Well, I suppose you could say I’m shooting for a particular theme lately, that being popular books being adapted to screen. I first gave you loyal Everyviewers the trailer for Tucker Max’s “I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell” that is slated for release this September.
I just stumbled upon another book-to-screen adaptation that actually tickles my fancy quite a bit as well, and that is the news of a potential Big Screen Adaptation of Brave New World, the 1932 classic novel by Alduous Huxley.
The project has apparently been on Director/Producer Ridley Scott’s radar for the better part of 2 decades, and it’s strongly rumored that if a script were up to his lofty standards, we could actually see Leonardo DiCaprio himself star in this movie.

I hate to admit this, but I am pretty chubbed up just thinking about this. If done right, this could be an EPIC film to go along with a WONDERFUL book.
