A new movie adaptation?

I read some interesting news today. It seems that Danny Devito is preparing to start production on a movie based on The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle.  Charlotte was one of my favorite characters as a kid, so I am very excited!  I think the story will make a great movie and will also turn a new generation onto Avi’s older works.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Danny DeVito will direct Saoirse Ronan, Morgan Freeman and Pierce Brosnan in the family adventure “The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle.”  Filming is set to begin in September for 2009 release.

  1. I don’t know about the casting of Saoirse Ronan as Charlotte… she did an excellent job as Briony in Atonement, but I always pictured Charlotte as looking a lot more like the girl on the cover of the book. Still, exciting news!
