The Goats / D.J. Caruso

His last venture into action and sci-fi resulted in a bit of a disappointment with the adaptation of I Am Number Four, but now director D.J. Caruso is taking a step back from bigger scale projects to take on an indie drama. Variety has word that Caruso is taking on a passion project in the form of The Goats, an adaptation of Brock Cole's young adult novel of the same name. The story follows two kids at summer camp who fall victim to a cruel prank that leaves them stranded on Goat Island. Rather than face the humiliation of returning to camp, the duo decide to run away together on a three-day journey of self-discovery.

Young stars Chandler Canterbury (Knowing) and Annalise Basso (Bedtime Stories) will play the lead characters in what sounds like a promising sort of coming-of-age story. I've always enjoyed films about young blossoming romance and self-discovery like Flipped or Liberty Heights, so this sounds right up my alley. There's likely more casting coming down the road as the story involves to two running into several people, some who try to help them and others who try to stop them, as they soon learn how very strong they are themselves, and they come to depend on their own resourcefulness and cunning to evade those who are trying to find them. It should be interesting to see how Caruso fares with a smaller scale, more intimate story like this.
