Keira says Never

Just other day I was talking with a friend and lamenting the loss of Mark Romanek on THE WOLFMAN. I'm sure the movie will be great and all but I know Romanek would've brought something special to the material. Hopefully it won't be too long in before we get to see Romanek's first feature since 2002 as he's signed on to direct the sci-fi thriller NEVER LET ME GO for Fox Searchlight. Keira Knightley has signed on to star in the film that follows three English students who realize their boarding school is actually a farm for clones waiting to have their organs harvested. The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Kazuo Ishiguro and while it sounds like THE ISLAND, isn't quite the same as that Michae Bay action flick. The script was written by Alex Garland (28 DAYS LATER) and made the list of the 10 Best Unproduced Scripts for 2008. Production on the film is set to begin this April in London.

keira's gorgeous and this movie sounds like it could be great. i'm definitely going to have to relearn how to read a book, and then read a book, probably Never Let me Go.

At least...

... Keira's not doing another period piece. It would be great if this movie helps her break out of her typecasting - she's a very good actress.

And Smarmy Douche, you're dead on. The Island started off well - I had to keep telling myself that it was a Michael Bay movie (where were the explosions?) - but about an hour in, I no longer needed to remind myself who the director was. Never seen Parts: The Clonus Horror, but going by the IMDb and the fact that it's been MST3K'd, it doesn't look

Hopefully, with a good director, a talented star, and a quality script, this film can do better.

Sci-fi thriller? Oh, man, that's a bit of a stretch. This is more a contemplative, deeply-saddening sci-fi allegory. Haven't read the book, but the script is a heartbreaking masterpiece.

Well it's about time we see Keira NOT wearing elaborate period costumes!

The concept sounds cool as well. I'll have to see if I can get my hands on that book.

Even though this has been done before; The Island, Parts: The Clonus Horror, it has never been done particularly well.

Not to mention that everyone I know who've read the novel like it a lot.

I'm interested in seeing what Romanek will bring to this. There is no reason for him not being one of the premier directors in cinema today other than his minimal output.
