Mark Twain's "Huck" Film to Have Supernatural Elements

Posted: March 22nd, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Mark TwainSubmit Comment
Paramount Pictures has picked up a script by Andy Burg (Bedtime Stories, The Sorcerer's Apprentice) titled "Huck," which revolves around the characters created by author Mark Twain, appearing in his 1876 novel "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and three additional books.

The storyline is being kept under wraps, but the project is described as a re-imagining in the vein of "Snow White and the Huntsman," focusing on Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn as adults. There also are supernatural elements in the script.

Twain's book have had several film and TV adaptation, from 1918's "Huck and Tom" to Disney's 1995 version "Tom and Huck," starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Brad Renfro. The new movie is produced by Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark (Rise of the Planet of the Apes).

re-imagining already great literature is a different story though (both literally and figuratively)
Sounds terrible. They'll probably cast Channing Tatum as Huck Finn.

I hope this has an awesome level of racism like the book.

^the book itself wasn't racist, it merely reflected the prevalent attitudes at the time in places like Missouri.

Anyway, I don't care for Huck Finn. His character as a ne'er-do-well gets tiresome. Rather than they should make a new Tom Sawyer as I enjoyed his adventures far more, as they keep Huck a sidekick where he belongs.

The book is not racist. All racist attitudes are portrayed as wrong. It's about a young boy smuggling a runaway slave to freedom. Don't really know how that's racist. Yes, characters say n*gger cause it's AUTHENTIC and historical.

Once again ... no even without the supernatural sh*t NO , it has Oscar bait all over it . Yet ... if this does see the light of day i sure do hope they stick to Twain's language of its time . Just to piss all the political correctness d*ck bags off . Remember folks , it's just a word .

"it's just a word"

A word which, after you strip away all the silliness, is from a Portuguese word (which is from the latin) that means 'dark'. lol. All this sh*t over a word that relates to an aspect of skin color no one could possibly argue.

Call me a blanca, folks. You blanca. You f*cking blanca. Yeah, now you're hurting my feelings!

In related news, if HUCK does well at the box office, Hollywood will remake TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD...

But this time, Boo Radley will actually be a ghost...
