Today Is Ray Bradbury's Birthday And He's Writing The Screenplay For A Movie Adaptation Of 'Dandelion Wine'
“Today I have been reborn. Dandelion Wine is my most deeply personal work and brings back memories of sheer joy as well as terror. This is the story of me as a young boy and the magic of an unforgettable summer which still holds a mystical power over me.”
—Ray Bradbury, who turns 91 today, is very happy that Black Swan producer Mike Medavoy is making a movie out of his 1957 classic. I'm pretty happy, too. I really loved this book as a kid—it's hazy in my memory. I should read it again. But from what I recall, it seems like it could make for a creepily beautiful movie.
