I know it’s a cliché to say, “You learn something new every day,” but I really did learn something new today! I found out that there’s a movie adapation of Wendy Mass’ book Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life that’s supposed to come out sometime in 2011!
And there are only a few months left in 2011, so it should be hitting theaters any day now, right? Right?!
Unfortunately, I can’t find any info on a precise release date, but that’s okay — it gives everyone more time to read the book before seeing the movie!
(Btw, if you’re not familiar with the book, it’s about a mysterious wooden box that Jeremy receives in the mail with the words, “The Meaning of Life — for Jeremy Fink to open on his 13th birthday.” The only problem? Four locks and no keys! So Jeremy and his best friend, Lizzy, set out on a quest to find the keys and discover the meaning of life.)
Here’s the movie trailer:
And for some behind-the-scenes fun, check out Wendy Mass’ blog post about her day on the movie set!
So… what do you think? Leave a comment with your opinion on the trailer. How do you think the movie will compare to the book?
