Word on The Road

When we scheduled our discussions of Cormac McCarthy's The Road in English club last November, we thought the release of the film was imminent; as it turns out, the release was delayed for reasons explained here. Well, we finally have a release date on the film adaptation of this gripping novel: October 16, 2009. Rumor has it that Professor Trout is already organizing a mass group trip to see the film, directed by John Hillcoat and starring Aragorn--er, Viggo Mortensen, Robert Duvall, Charlize Theron, and Guy Pearce.

(Thanks to Meg Tully for the release info.)
