Big news for CS Lewis fans! According to Variety, Ralph Winter (X-Men, Fantastic Four), Randy Argue, and Douglas Gresham (Lewis’ stepson) will produce a big screen adaptation of CS Lewis’ book “The Screwtape Letters” with Walden Media. The project is described as “a midbudget, primarily live-action pic” that “embodies Christian themes.” Walden hopes to release the film in 2008. First published in 1942, “The Screwtape Letters” is a collection of 31 letters from a retired demon name Screwtape to his nephew Wormwood on the best way to decieve humans. Read the full story here!
