Nick Cave and Cormac McCarthy on “The Road”

cmccarthy_theroad.jpgLast week Esquire magazine called the film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy‘s The Road “the most important movie of the year.” Nevertheless, fan reactions to the movie trailer have been mixed.

The adaptation will star Viggo Mortensen and directed by Australian John Hillcoat–who directed musician and author Nick Cave‘s script for The Proposition. In addition, this BBC feature has an interview with McCarthy and Cave concerning the film–complete with a bit of the soundtrack.

Here’s more from the article: “[The film] had its release date pushed back one full year last November. Everyone involved–director, producer, screenwriter–says there was no secret agenda to that, no worry to be inferred, no doubt on anyone’s part about the final product. The movie, which required more than two hundred visual effects to decolorize a landscape stripped of life, simply wasn’t ready.” (Link via.)
