Save the Date: The Circle based on the book by Dave Eggers set for release April 28, 2017

If you’ve taken a peek at the tab Movies Based on Books 2016 (it’s just up there, on the right) you may have noticed the movie based on Dave Eggers The Circle stuck in dateless limbo. The movie starring Emma Watson, Tom Hanks and John Boyega was reportedly coming out sometime this year but the distributor recently announced the thriller will be released on April 28th of next year, 2017. So I’m regretfully pulling it from the schedule.  

If you read my take on the book you know I’m looking forward to the film.

Here’s how Variety sums up the movie written and directed by James Ponsoldt, (The End of The Tour, The Spectacular Now
Hanks plays the founder of the world’s largest tech and social media company. He encourages Watson’s character, who’s rising through the company ranks, to live her life with complete transparency — but no one is really safe when everyone is watching. The novel turns into a contemporary thriller about the perils of life in a digital age where personal data is collected, sifted and monetized and used for surveillance, rendering privacy obsolete.

Watson replaced Alicia Vikander in the role last year. If you’ve read the book, what do you think of the casting change? 

Gimme a trailer guys! I can’t wait.
