Recent ‘The New Daughter’ News…..

At the following link:
John Connolly is quoted as saying: “The New Daughter, the first movie to be made from my work, is nearing completion. Last week, John Travis, the movie’s very talented screenwriter, saw it for the first time in a small screening room, or at least saw 98 per cent of it, as the last fine-tuning is still being done. John, who is a harsh judge of his own work, emerged hugely enthused. I’m sure that he won’t mind some of his comments being reproduced here: “It’s an adult, very well acted and directed, beautifully shot movie with a real sense of dread the whole way through ... In fact, it’s almost a little Spanish.” … Or “… maybe it’s like David Cronenberg directed it. It’s kind of like A History of Violence, but with monsters instead mobsters ...”

The Bodyguard stage production…..

According to the following link:
In talks, about the possibility of turning the hit film ‘The Bodyguard’ into a stage production, to open in London in 2012, by David Ian, the London-based producer who has been negotiating the stage rights from Kevin Costner, a producer of the film as well as its star, and Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote it. It would feature ‘I Will Always Love You’, one of the best-selling singles in music history and the other songs that were featured in the 1992 movie, ‘I'm Every Woman’ ‘Run To You’ ‘Jesus Loves Me’ ‘Queen Of The Night’ ‘Trust In Me’ and ‘It's Gonna Be A Lovely Day’.
