Sure to disappoint...

Talk about excited - the movie adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" is set to be released November 26, 2008. (Cormac McCarthy is not only the author of "No Country For Old Men" but is also Oprah recommended!)

"The Road is a 2006 novel by American writer Cormac McCarthy. It is a post-apocalyptic tale describing a journey taken by a father and his young son over a period of several months across a landscape blasted years before by an unnamed cataclysm that destroyed civilization and, seemingly, most life on earth. The novel was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the 2006 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction."

The film stars Viggo Mortenson (gotta love Viggo) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (who?) as the father and son. John Hillcoat, best known for his 2005 critically acclaimed film The Proposition, directs. Guy Pearce also stars while Charlize Theron, Robert Duvall, and Michael K. Williams (Wire Alert!) make appearances.

No trailer just yet but these screen shots are unreal!

my cousin is co-producing it. It was shot in New Orleans 9th Ward and the ashes of Mount St. Helena. Nice scene selection huh?
