The Monkey Wrench Gang and Shazam!

It seems as though this stuff is going unreported, but I saw an interview on the news tonight with Catherine Hardwicke (meh) and she said they are in pre-production for "The Monkey Wrench Gang" and William Goldman is indeed doing the adaptation.

For any of you who don't know, "The Monkey Wrench Gang" is a book that kicks a whole lot of ass and is set in Utah. Elias would be much better suited to tell you more about it, but I'm glad that it finally looks like it might get made.

According to the director, it's going in front of cameras on May 1st.

That's good times.

Also, the IMDb reports that Goldman is also doing the screenwriting duties on Shazam! and that makes me happy.
