Fingers crossed that this news story will actually fall through, because this film has been a long time in the making.

According to Mark Romanek’s Twitter account (via The Playlist), his upcoming film, a hotly anticipated adaptation of the beloved Kazuo Ishiguro novel, Never Let Me Go, has finally gotten somewhat of a release date, as the film will hit the U.S. on October 1st, and should follow suit shortly thereafter for U.K. and European audiences.

What I do know for sure as well is that this has the makings of becoming a fantastic film.  The cast features Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley, Andrew Garfield, Sally Hawkins, Nathalie Richard, and Andrea Riseborough, and is based off of a critically beloved piece of literature.  The story has been described as a sci-fi thriller, but also has been seen as a dystopian drama, with a tinge of melancholy just to be sure. The Playlist also reports a story saying that Spike Jonze, brilliant filmmaker and all around bad ass, wept when he saw the film, so if that isn’t enough, I don’t know what is.

Personally, I can’t wait to see this thing.  The film was penned by Alex Garland, Danny Boyle’s right hand man, and throw in that really wonderful cast and story that made Jonze turn into a pile of mush, and you have the makings of one hell of a film.
