The wildly popular book The Giver is hitting the big screen with an esteemed director (Phillip Noyce, Harrison Ford’s Jack Ryan movies, Angelina Jolie’s Salt) and an all-star cast that the Weinstein Company is highlighting with a set of character posters released today.
The Giver follows the story of Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), who is living a life that can only be classified as boringly normal. Then, he is given a “life assignment” as the Receiver of Memory. It is at that point he realizes that the world he lives in is hardly normal at all.
The film is based on the bestselling young adult novel by Lois Lowry. Look for The Giver August 15. And about that all-star cast… how about Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgard and Taylor Swift, among others?
