Don’t worry, I don’t plan to make a habit of just posting links and complaining about them, but this really is stupid. I was never particularly an avid reader of the Miss Marple books, but still, this really is stupid (did I say that already?)
I don’t know if I should be more insulted as a book lover or a soon-to-be old person.
What’s next: “Okay, we’re remaking Moby Dick, except instead of a grizzled old sea captain, he’ll be a sixteen-year-old pop star, and instead of a whale, he’ll be chasing a hot female half-vampire/half-werewolf. At the end they’ll have a dance-off or something. Can’t miss.”
Hollywood, leave the literary world alone unless you commit to doing justice to the works you coopt. Please.
What do you think? Am I overreacting? Would you go see this movie?
