We have seen a huge amount of novels being adapted for the big screen over the years and, while some of these projects prove hugely successful, there are others that have been huge flops. When it comes to the works of Nick Hornby though, it is generally a successful adaptation, with the likes of High Fidelity and About a Boy proving very successful over the years.

So, when it was announced that the Nick Hornby novel A Long Way Down was being adapted for the big screen, fans of the previous adaptations, and of Nick's work, were very excited at the prospect. This excitement rose even more when it was revealed which Hollywood stars would appear in the movie, with an all-star cast on board for the project.
 
It announced that the A Long Way Down cast would include Imogen Poots, Aaron Paul, Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette and Sam Neil, among others. With a cast like that surely A Long Way Down was going to be the latest successful Nick Hornby big screen adaptation? Unfortunately not.

Jack Thorne penned the screenplay for A Long Way Down and, what elements of the black comedy he didn't manage to get rid of, director Pascal Chaumeil managed to finish off the slaughter. A Long Way Down got rid of everything that makes Nick Hornby great and made the movie into an easy to digest crowd pleaser, leaving everyone disappointed. Not even the impressive cast could save A Long Way Down from the critics and it has been heavily panned.
 
A Long Way Down is out now and, while we were left disappointed by it, we would love to hear your views on the project.
