It has been reported that the smash hit children’s book The BFG, which was written by the legendary children’s book author Roald Dahl, is set to be made into a live action movie. It is believed that Dreamworks have picked up the rights to make the movie.
It is believed that Schindler’s List producer Kathleen Kennedy will be joining forces with Back to the Future producer Frank Marshall to produce The BFG. Meanwhile E.T. writer Melissa Mathison is expected to pen the screenplay for the big screen adaptation.
There is no word of who will direct The BFG live action movie, as of yet and there is yet to be any cast linked to the film. The BFG was published back in 1982 and was turned into an animated movie back in 1989 starring David Jason as the voice of the giant. There is currently no release attached to The BFG but it could be sometime before it hits the big screen.
