I'm currently reading Cormac McCarthy's The Road, which is going to be a damn depressing film. I do think Viggo Mortensen is inspired casting as the taciturn father struggling to keep his son alive in a post-apocalyptic hell. Am also just seeing that Charlize Theron is slated to appear as Mortensen's late wife in flashback scenes.
Meanwhile, I also just started reading Gore Vidal's Myra Breckinridge (love it!!). There's a 1970s adaptation starring Raquel Welch that promises to be fabulously campy indeed, but maybe it's time for a new version?
