John Marsden writes about the film of Tomorrow When the War Began

I cut out the copy of this article from the Saturday SMH Spectrum section and pinned it up in the library for the students to peruse.  It's online here, with video too (and the picture above).  John Marsden on the film of Tomorrow When the War Began.  Much anticipated film.

It opens 2 September, next week.  I've blogged in other entries about the trailers etc.

Last week, one of the kids was THRILLED to find that there were books for this film.   Can't remember if I could find the first one for him; we have multiple copies, but there has been increasingly brisk John Marsden business in the last couple of months as the film gets closer.

The Blue Mountains west of Sydney NSW were used for some of the location filming - it will be fun to see if the kids pinpoint any particular places they know.

His comments were interesting to read - he had so little input to the film.

So vastly different to the movies for 'Harry Potter' and 'Twilight' -and so long after the books were written! A whole new audience. It will be good to see the books moving from the shelves again, though there are, of course, movie-release copies too.

I also wrote about this recently: http://crewsreviews.edublogs.org/2010/08/12/book-or-movie/
