Well That Was Fast: Ray Bradbury's 'Dandelion Wine' To Be A Film

7 June 2012 8:59 AM, PDT | Filmology | See recent Filmology news »

We were all pretty bummed yesterday when we found out that Ray Bradbury died at the age of 91. His Illustrated Man was one of my favorite books when I was younger (and it also creeped me out a fair bit). Anyway, Dandelion Wine, Bradbury's most personal work, is in the process of getting adapted for the big screen.

I know, some of you might be rolling your eyes and saying "Of Course. Of course right after somebody dies everyone tries to cash in." This is partially true, but it's not like Michael Bay is coming out of the woodwork to declare his love for Bradbury and announce that he's redoing Fahrenheit 451 (but with more explosions/Shia LeBeouf). Also, the script was being written way back in August, so it's not like people were scrambling to cash in. I guess you could say it's been merely expedited.

Phoenix Pictures Search for Directors to Adapt Ray Bradbury’s ‘Dandelion Wine’

7 June 2012 7:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If nothing else, the unfortunate passing of Ray Bradbury motivated one Hollywood bigwig with a penchant for smart, engaging storytelling. While Phoenix Pictures picked up rights to his Dandelion Wine back in August, yesterday’s death has brought the announcement that directors are now getting offers to tackle the story, which now has a reportedly “excellent” screen treatment from Rodion Nahapetov. [Variety]

A first glance, it’s easy to take such news as a prime example of capitalizing on someone’s death, but Bradbury was wildly enthusiastic about the endeavor; after all, it’s one of the most personal stories he’s ever crafted. A quote from last August found the author referring to it as “‘the story of me as a young boy and the magic of an unforgettable summer which still holds a mystical power over me.” Most have described Dandelion Wine as a tribute to the wonder of childhood summers, »
