The Giver Cast Update

Katie Holmes has been cast in The Giver. She will join Glenn Close, Brenton Thwaites, and Jeff Bridges. The film is being adapted from the book “The Giver” by Lois Lowry. The film will be directed by Phillip Noyce. If you haven’t read the book, we here at Mania strongly suggest that you do. 

The Plot: December is the time of the annual Ceremony at which each twelve-year-old receives a life assignment determined by the Elders. Jonas watches his friend Fiona named Caretaker of the Old and his cheerful pal Asher labeled the Assistant Director of Recreation. But Jonas has been chosen for something special. When his selection leads him to an unnamed man-the man called only the Giver-he begins to sense the dark secrets that underlie the fragile perfection of his world. Given his lifetime assignment at the Ceremony of Twelve, Jonas becomes the receiver of memories shared by only one other in his community and discovers the terrible truth about the society in which he lives.

The Giver has no official release date.

This sounds like it could be really good. Noyce is a great director and its got a great cast. I'll keep an eye out for it.

Evidently Taylor Swift was also cast too.  Which is better news than Katie Holmes being cast.

 DarkXid, I was thrilled to just get an update ont he film. The film is all about the Kid and the Giver... the rest is just filler.

 One of the finest young adult books, and it came out before Harry Potter or any of its cheap imitations. I've been waiting to see how they translate this to film...

 Jeff Bridges is getting like Robert Di Niro...grabbing every role he can, while he can, and stashing the loot.

 Apparently some parents have tried to ban this book from school libraries.  That should stir up interest in the movie.

 I heard Bridges bought up the rights to this book years ago
