Bridges a Giver

07.10.2003

The Dude himself, Jeff Bridges, is apparently on the path to producing, and starring in, the indie sci-fi flick THE GIVER. Bridges' AsIs Prods. along with a couple other indie shingles are collaborating on the project which "follows Jonas, a 12-year-old boy living in an idyllic future where all memory of human history has been erased and there is no crime, poverty or sickness -- only joy. However, Jonas' life is thrown into turmoil when he learns some chilling truths about the world in which he lives, and his knowledge sparks rebellion." Ed Neumeier, who most recently penned a couple of straight-to-video sequels that are currently filming; STARSHIP TROOPERS 2 and ANACONDA 2: THE BLACK ORCHID, has been hired to adapt Lois Lowry's 1994 Newbery Award-winning novel into a workable script.

The Newbery Award is given to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. Previous winners include HOLES, which was recently made into a fun looking film featuring Sigourney Weaver, and SHILOH which was made into the 1996 film about an abused dog and his search for a new home.
