There are lots of films coming out in 2011 that have been remade from original books or folktales.
This is not a complete list, and I have no idea how good the films will be because I haven’t seen them (especially the ones that haven’t been released yet).
However, I can thoroughly recommend all of the books that these films come from 🙂 and of course, everyone knows the book is always better than the film anyway 😉
And if you know of any others, feel free to share.
Brighton Rock by Graham Greene
Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliffe (The Eagle, Certificate 12A)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J K Rowling
And talking of Harry Potter, there’s some news about the end of Deathly Hallows being changed.
Anyone still there? Fine, you don’t need to panic because the story is staying pretty much the same, and J K Rowling has approved it.
Basically, there’s a scene that the film makers wanted to do more with, and they thought it was in a boring location. So they wanted to jazz it up a bit.
