The film version of Lois Lowry’s The Giver is building an impressive cast according to an article in Deadline.
Jeff Bridges has been attached to the project for some time and now Meryl Streep will be playing the chief elder. Also joining the film are Alexander Skarsgard and Cameron Monaghan. Brenton Thwaites will be playing Jonah. The film starts shooting in eight weeks and is a co-production of The Weinstein Company and Walden Media.
Here’s hoping that such a stellar cast will result in a film worthy of one of my favorite books of all time.
