A young Canadian director named Mathieu Ratthe directed a short demo scene he adapted from the opening chapter of the book, in hopes of getting Spielberg’s attention. Ratthe writes “My main objective for creating this piece is to demonstrate my directing ability and my vision to the producers who own the rights to the story”. And I’m very impressed by the resulting six and a half minute short film that Mathieu has produced. Watch it now below. Hopefully someone in Hollywood is paying attention and gives this guy a call. If not about The Talisman, then about something else.
Thanks to /Film reader Timothy C for the tip.
