The Yellow Birds

Recommended Posts

Link to our thread for the novel.

 

Screen Daily reports that the film adaptation of The Yellow Birds will be directed by David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints) and star Tye Sheridan, Will Poulter, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

 

I liked Saints quite a bit, so this is intriguing.

 

For those who have read the novel, is it more contemplative, which would fit Lowery's style, or more of a typical war story?

I wonder if this means that Lowery's off the Pete's Dragon remake.

/Film mentioned several other projects Lowery has lined up, including Pete's Dragon. It sounds like The Yellow Birds is still early in the development process, so he might not get to it for a while.

Contemplative, wouldn't you agree, Jeremy?

This is very good news.  Lowery is a great choice for trying to translate Powers' prose poetry into film imagery.

 

And yes, the story is a contemplative one.  Another Tom Clancy Kevin Powers is not.
