If you’ve been wondering what the status is on the John Hillcoat-helmed adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s post-apocalyptic tale of a father’s love, The Road, look no further than Nick Cave.
USA Today got their hands on six new images from John Hilcoat’s The Road, based on the best selling novel from Carmac McCarthy. Below you can see one of them, hit up USA Today or The Road’s database entry here on the site for the rest.
Seems that studios these days are becoming more and more wary of when and how they release their horror titles, and just how much exposure they will get when they’re out. I know our genre is supposed to scare people, but this is getting out of hand.
I still have yet to discover the phenomenon of Cormac McCarthy's The Road first-hand, though I do have every intention of reading it before the movie is out later this year. If you're curious, you can get The Road through Evilshop here.
The first image from John Hilcoat’s The Road, an adaptation of the book by Cormac McCarthy, showed up yesterday over on a site called Row Three. As you can see, we have Viggo Mortensen attempting to comfort his son. Very touching.
Nothing goes better with turkey and dressing then the dismay and horror brought about by a nuclear apocalypse! Open up and say, "Ahhhh" ....
I think this is probably the best cast, pay scale-wise, to ever be assembled for a movie that is, at its heart, about cannibals.
It’s not a huge chunk of news, but could be pretty exciting for Hitman helmer Xavier Gens (interview) when it comes to getting attention for his next film, Vanikoro.
Word on the street is that apocalypse films are definitely "in" at the moment.
