The Giver

As someone who grew up reading Lois Lowry's 1993 novel, I'm extremely curious to see it translated onto the big screen. Jeff Bridgeswho actually didn't originally even want to play The Giver — stars in the title role, alongside Brenton Thwaites as the young hero, Jonas. There are quite a few changes from the book to the screen, and I'm really wondering how much screen time Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, and Alexander Skarsgard are going to get. We'll find out on Aug. 15!
