Behind the Bridge
For those of you still worried about how the filmed version of Bridge to Terabithia will turn out, I offer you solace in the form of a lovely article via the Burlington Free Press. In it, we learn the true story behind the book, the toll such events took, and the current situation with the upcoming film.
David Paterson, now 40 and living on Long Island, became a husband, father and a writer of plays and screenplays. It was in 1990 when he began writing a film script for "Bridge to Terabithia." It's taken him all these years to convince Hollywood studio executives to keep the essence of the novel intact.And for the record, he had little influence over the infamous trailer, finding himself more than a touch annoyed with them. An important and necessary read for anyone familiar with the book.
