The inner workings of Twain’s imagination are coming soon to a movie theatre near you — and no we aren’t talking about Shania Twain!
Mark Twain’s two greatest characters, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, are the focus of a spec screenplay which Paramount has recently scooped up.
The title of the screenplay written by Andrew Burg is Huck and Finn and will be produced by Matt Lopez, Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark. The latter two recently produced the awesome-possum Rise of the Planet of the Apes which featured super hottie James Franco.
While Tom Sawyer is regarded as mainly a children’s book, Huckleberry Finn is more for adults so we’re curious how this movie will materialize. The storyline is being kept hush-hush, but we have heard the movie will revolve around Huck and Tom as adults plus the flick will have supernatural elements.
Are U excited for Huck and Tom??
