Derek Cianfrance to find THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS for Dreamworks!!
Hey Yo, Draven here.
Derek Cianfrance is coming off of two critically acclaimed films in BLUE VALENTINE and THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES and now Dreamworks has set him to direct an adaptation of M.L. Stedman’s novel. Here is Amazon’s description of the best selling novel:
After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel.
Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby. Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.
Having seen both of Cianfrance’s films, this sounds like perfect material for him to adapt. He explored a lot of these themes with THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES and so this seems like a natural progression for him. Dreamworks is obviously envisioning this as a potential award contender and I am sure this will attract a nice cast so stay tuned.
