Lewis' "Great Divorce" to be a movie


This book is one of my favorites in vividly illustrating 1) why we deserve Hell and 2) why people in Hell would still never choose to go to Heaven.  Say what you might about C. S. Lewis, and I know that there are a few well-grounded criticisms of the book, but this book is still a gold mine for illustrations and "ah-ha!" moments. 

Now, what will a movie based on the book be like?  We'll find out.  Beloved Pictures has purchased the film rights, and The Great Divorce appears on their site as a coming film project.  Founded in 2007, I just don't know anything about them yet, so it's your best guess as to where they will take the film.

But, here is some intel from Mason Harrison:
Beloved has attached David L. Cunningham, who helmed To End All Wars (Twentieth Century Fox), The Path to 9/11 (ABC), and Seeker: The Dark is Rising (Twentieth Century Fox/Walden Media), to direct.  Michael Ludlum, Caleb Applegate and Robert Abramoff are all attached to produce.  Bob Beltz, Special Advisor to The Chronicles of Narnia:  The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, and the Academy Award-winning Ray, is attached as an Executive Producer.  “We are tremendously excited to bring one of Lewis╩╝s most profound stories to the screen, and we have assembled an exceptionally strong team to achieve that end,” said Beloved CEO Michael Ludlum.  “We believe that this story, much like The Chronicles of Narnia, will resonate with a global audience.”
