I Have No Hope for This Movie

posted by on September 18 at 15:00 PM

Diane English, who directed The Women, is setting her sights on a film adaptation of Erica Jong’s Fear of Flying. This cannot be a good idea. English is going to handle the period-piece 1970s thing in her own, classy way:

English revealed that her version of the film will take place in modern times, with an older character utilized as a framing device to tell a flashback story.

Maybe English will let Diane Keaton star in this one as the older Isadora Wing; it’d almost be worth the price of admission just to hear her talk sentimentally about her ‘zipless fuck days.’

Even worse? The film version of The Time Traveler's Wife stars Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams.

Wow. I hope they're writing a cameo for Hillary.

God, I hate that book. It's the epitome of boomer excess.
