“The Lovely Bones” is the movie adaptation of the book by Best-Selling author Alice Sebold, and the movie is directed by Academy Award winning director Peter Jackson (“Lord of the Rings Trilogy”). I thought this book was amazing! If you haven’t read it, I would highly recommend reading it! I know this is going to sound like an adjective fest but truly this book was beautiful, chilling, haunting, heart breaking, and uplifting.
Here is a brief synopsis of the novel:
Fourteen year old Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan, “Atonement”) becomes a victim of rape and murder. As she copes with her own death from heaven, she watches her family and friends grieve while the police search for her killer.

Check out this post from Comingsoon.net on Peter Jackson’s upcoming projects including “District 9”, “The Hobbit”, and “The Lovely Bones”. Jackson produced the upcoming Sci-Fi flick “District 9” which is set to open in theaters on August 14, 2009. Also mentioned was that the first draft for “The Hobbit” will be finished in a few weeks. The most exciting news to me from this post was that the first trailer for “The Lovely Bones” will be released on August 9th.
“The Lovely Bones” is based on the best-selling novel by Alice Sebold. The book is absolutely amazing and on paper the cast is an award-winning combination. Amongst the cast there are Academy Award winners, nominees, etc. A very accomplished cast indeed. Saoirse Ronan plays the title character Susie Salmon and her on-screen parents will be played by Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz. Full cast list can be found on IMDB.com.
