What Hath Terabithia Wrought?
Your name: Gabor Csupo.
Your occupation: Director.
Your latest project: Bridge to Terabithia.
Your movie: Hit.
Your conclusion: I should do more of these children's films. Maybe I should adapt that book J.K. Rowling's always talking about. What's it called again? Oh, yeah. The Little White Horse. Kind of a lame name though. How about we call it The Moon Princess instead? Yeah. That's got some verve to it. We'll get Colin Firth to sign on. It'll be awesome. But I should really do more than one film at a time. I know! I'll get AnnaSophia Robb to star in another film. This one'll be based on that book due out in May, The White Giraffe. Can't see how anything could go wrong with THAT one.
The problem is that I've read The White Giraffe. I've read it, and I have some bad news. It isn't good. With pretensions to be something more, basically it boils down to a white-girl-goes-to-Africa-and-saves-the-day story. I'll review it soon, but to hear that Csupo has signed onto that particular project makes me sad. Ah well.
