Beowulf Beowulf
One of the main reasons I have been hearing a ton about Beowulf lately is that Gerard Butler fans keep reminding me that he is doing Beowulf & Grendel [being shown at the Toronto Film Fest]. Yes, I know, this is not the same thing... but how often do you really hear people continuously bring up anything Beowulf?

The main question about the Beowulf coming in 2007 is how can a film adapted from an extremely old story [author unknown] successfully find its way to the big screen? Well, with a script like this, it looks like Beowulf is adapting perfectly.

Beowulf Script Review

The good people over at LatinoReview have gotten their hands on the script for the upcoming adaptation Beowulf and have therefore reviewed the entire screenplay for the sake of the moviegoers. What did they think? Well, their report is nothing short of gushing:

Folks, THIS SCRIPT ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!

The way the script is written, there is no way in bloody this will be a PG-13 film. This is definitely going to be a hard R. That would be the only way to do this thing justice. This is Conan the Barbarian r-rated full of gruesome macho violence, boasting, and lots of sex. At least that is the way it is written. This flick is about a kick ass balls to the wall barbarian. This ain't Toy Story so I can't wait when this thing hits in the summer of 2007 along with The Transformers.

The review goes on to discuss the story of Beowulf, something most young adults should know as we are forced to read sections of it in high school and college. Personally, I was more of a Homer fan myself; making me wonder if a successful Beowulf could spawn an Odyssey or Aenied.

To read the entire script review for Beowulf, head over to LatinoReview.

Beowulf has a new release date set for May 26th, 2006.
