It’s taken 20 years, but we’re almost there. “The Giver” comes out August 15, 2014!
Larkable brought you new stills back in January for the exciting movie adaptation of Lois Lowry’s popular book, “The Giver”. Produced by and starring Jeff Bridges, who was the book’s biggest advocate for decades, the movie also features Hollywood giants like Meryl Streep and Alexander Skarsgård, as well as breakout performer Brenton Thwaites (who plays Jonas Salk).
Audiences can also expect to see Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift among the many faces in the trailer. Some surprises include a romantic sub-plot from screenwriter Michael Mitnick, and some pretty futuristic technology, advanced beyond what was presented in the book — but worse things could have happened. As Bridges told Entertainment Weekly, “the spirit of the story is still there.”
All in all, we’re pretty thrilled Harvey Weinstein finally got on board with this idea, because it looks like the movie is going to exceed expectations all around.
