The BFG Movie
If, like me, your childhood book of choice was any by Roald Dahl then this story may be of interest. If you didn't read as a child, well your probably too busy drinking White Lightning to read this.

There's been a plethora of Dahl adaptations, from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory to Fantastic Mr Fox but, apart from a cartoon back in the late eighties, we've not seen the BFG on the big screen.

Well fret no more as news has been announced that old big friendly will indeed now get his time in the Hollywood spotlight with a screenplay being penned by the writer of ET no less.

Melissa Mathison is on writing duties with Frank Marshall producing but no word yet on a director or actors.

I always enjoyed The BFG as a kid. Along with Chocolate Factory and George's Marvellous Medicine, BFG was one of my favourites so I'm really pleased that he's getting his own movie.

Anyone else excited or are you still waiting for your own favourite Dahl novel to be adapted?
