CHERUB filmnyt

3. marts, 2010 § Skriv en kommentar

Der har længe været snak om at CHERUB skulle filmatiseres, men den slags snak følger enhver semi-succesfuld bog med franchise-potentiale. Imidlertid er det nu ved at blive virkelighed for James Adams de andre keruber: Robert Muchamore skriver på CHERUB’s hjemmeside at filmen forhåbentlig begynder på optagelserne til sommer.

Han linker også til et interview på Horror Squad med filmens instruktør, Chris Smith. Smith har mest laver gys/splat, men det er nok også okay at have en instruktør der ikke er alt for mainstream, selvom det så nok betyder at det ikke bliver en superfancy Hollywood-blockbuster-produktion. Her er hvad han siger:

Horror Squad: How are you? How are things?
Christopher Smith: I’m sitting in a coffee shop about to get on writing this kids film I’ve been working on for a number of years called CHERUB. It’s kind of like a Rodriguez Spy Kids but not a big budget version; like a Shane Meadows Spy Kids movie. It’s that kind of film. It’s about a bunch of state kids working for the government, it’s quite a cool film based on a series of books.

Horror Squad: Very cool, when’s that going into production?

Christopher Smith: We’re hoping to shoot in the summer. There’s a big franchise of books in England called CHERUB and what it is is like a Nikita story. It’s about a young kid from a broken family who suddenly realizes that he’s an orphan and he’s being cared for by the government. We’re doing it quite realistically, so instead of the kids, ya’ know, jumping out of helicopters and doing that, it’s more about how the government uses kids in the same way drug dealers would use kids to traffic things. It’s more Bourne Identity than it is James Bond.

Horror Squad: Is it going to be for adults or for kids?
Christopher Smith: No, it’s for kids, but we’re trying to do it so it’s not a children’s story. It’s kind of a mix of This is England and Goonies. It’s a very cool thing.

This is England og Goonies?! Okaaaay, så. (This is England, instrueret af Shane Meadows, handler om skinheads i starten af 80’erne.)

PS: Jeg skal også lige nævne, at de danske fans kan glæde sig til en ekstra lille sommerferiegave – men mere om det senere …
