Tuck Everlasting


Tuck Everlasting is a new adaptation of Natalie Babbitt's acclaimed 1975 novel. The earlier version appeared in 1980 as a small independent film which despite much positive reaction never got quite the attention it deserved. It was the first film for director Frederick King Keller who is busy in TV these days, with credits for Angel, 24, Roswell and Nash Bridges. For most of the cast the film turned out to be their only screen credit. (Though oddly enough Sonia Raimi also sports a credit in Samuel Beckett's Film.)

The story is about Winnie, a young girl who, after a fight with her mother, wanders through the nearby woods and quickly becomes lost. She's rescued by a boy named Jesse Tuck and soon becomes fast friends with his entire family. However, the Tucks have a secret and are being pursued by a mysterious man in a yellow suit. Will Winnie stay to protect them or return to her old life?

According to Jay Russell, the director of the current film, the novel's author Babbitt wasn't happy with the original film. The producer who owned the rights spent a decade trying to find somebody else interested in a remake until running across Russell who had made an impact with My Dog Skip (2000). He accepted and brought in screenwriters James Hart (Hook, Bram Stoker's Dracula) and Jeffrey Lieber (Tangled). They made some changes to give the film more ballast, such as increasing Winnie's age from 10 to 17 so that she would be more aware of the consequences of her actions. Signed to star was Alexis Bledel of TV's The Gilmore Girls as Winnie. Others in the cast include William Hurt, Sissy Spacek, Amy Irving, Ben Kingsley and narration by Elisabeth Shue. The film opens theatrically nationwide on October 11th.
