John’s Final Novel Study Project #1 (second draft)

Here is my second run through for the novel study project:

 

The Film Adaptation:

As you know, The Future of Us is soon to be turned into a movie.  Since almost all of us has had a favorite novel turned into a disappointing film, here is your chance to get it right.  This assignment requires four steps.

First, cast the novel.  Pick the actors who should play: Emma, Josh, Kellan, and Tyson.  Make sure your choices are appropriate for the characters.  Nicole Kidman and Bruce Willis are just wrong for Emma and Josh!

Next, you will have to decide what from the novel to leave in and what to leave out.  Second, pick out five things that happened in the novel that have must be kept for the movie.  Remember what we talked about in class with movies being filmed in scenes.  Think of the book as a collection of scenes.

Third, pick out five things that happened in the novel that can be cut from the movie and have the story still make sense.  Again, remember what we talked about in class with movies being filmed in scenes.  Think of the book as a collection of scenes.

Fourth, write a paragraph defending your choices of what to keep from the book and what to cut.
