The picture book series Walter the Farting Dog by William Kotzwinkle and Glenn Murray will be made into a move, with filming starting in the spring of 2009. The Jonas Brothers have signed on with Fox, and will feature Nick, Joe, Kevin, and their little brother Frankie. The book has been wildly popular with young boys, so it seems like the film will reach them, too.
As I often do with picture books being made into movies, I wonder how they will translate to the screen, and if a lot of stuff will be added that doesn’t have the feel of the books. I think of Horton, especially–it grew so far away from the book it was hard to recognize. But sometimes it works out. What’s your take?
