Exciting movie news

In light of all the recent posts from my blogger friends about ' My Sister's Keeper' from Jodi Picoult, a book that I also love, I decided to check out her website. Look what I found:

"My Sister’s Keeper film news: During a brief visit to the LA set last week I had the pleasure of meeting many of the actors, and watching them work. Cameron Diaz and Jason Patric are brilliantly portraying Sara and Brian Fitzgerald - you’re going to be very impressed. As for the Anna and Kate’s characters, Abigail Breslin and Sofia Vassilieva are such remarkable little actresses that they literally had the entire crew in tears during one particularly emotional scene - an assistant was handing out Kleenex! Kudos to Nick Cassavetes, the very gifted director who is working all this magic. I will be going back to the set soon, meeting the rest of the actors (including Joan Cusack and Alec Baldwin) and will post more about my second visit - I can’t wait!"

I had no idea they were turning the book into a movie. Group outing when this hits theaters, anyone?!

I'm in!

I knew about the movie when I was reading the book, but I waited till the end before looking up any details because I didn't want to imagine the stars as the characters in the book. I wanted my own little imagination to fill in the faces. :)

I don't think I can read this book if it makes you cry. I don't like to cry.
