Anyone who knows me knows that this my all-time favorite book. This is a book that I can read over and over again and have new thoughts and ideas each time. This is a book that speaks to me. This is a book that I am passionate about.
So...you can imagine how excited I am to see it come to life on the big screen!!
News around the campfire is that they start filming October 7th in South Africa and it is set to release August 15th, 2014.
Here's the cast (in part):

Oh, I can't wait!!!!
(And I thought I was excited about Saving Mr. Banks!)
And if you haven't read The Giver yet, then please, oh, please....hop to it!
