More New Photos from Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones
Earlier this week we featured the very first photo from Peter Jackson's highly anticipated adaptation The Lovely Bones. Stuffed in the latest issue of Empire (that's about the 10th time I've said that this week) are a few new photos from the film, including our first good look at Saoirse Ronan as the lead character Susie Salmon . Additionally seen in the photos are Susan Sarandon (above), who plays Susia's grandma, and Mark Wahlberg (below), who plays Susie's father. I expect this film to gain quite a bit of buzz over the summer, considering it is Peter Jackson who's directing, and it is a very heartfelt and somewhat controversial story.
Thanks to the fan site Access Saoirse (via SlashFilm) for serving up these high res scans. This is a definite indication that you should pick up the latest issue of Empire, because there is so much packed in it that isn't online and it looks like a great read. In an update found in USA Today earlier this week, Peter Jackson spoke about what appealed to him about the book. "As soon as I read the book, I was inspired by how unique this story could be as a film - both in a narrative sense and as well as visually. Perhaps most of all, I responded to the hope and good humor that runs throughout the book." Stay tuned for more big updates as they arrive.
