Film Adaptations

A friend recommended William P. Young’s “The Shack” to me years ago, but I never got around to reading it. Today I saw the trailer for the upcoming film adaptation and I am excited about seeing it. So of course this means that I’ll have to read the book now because that’s the type of person I am – the kind that has to read the book before seeing the movie.

It’s interesting to me how many movies are based on books. For those who argue that Hollywood is simply rehashing, remaking and rebooting movies from ten, twenty and thirty years ago (and they are), there are a surprising number of films that come from original material. Did you know:

  1. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to seeing the film, as the book was amazing. So vivid and clear. I felt like a character in the book. Let’s hope this film adaptation captures as much details as possible, from the book.
