The Giver to be a movie

Exciting book-to-movie news. It has been announced that of my favorite novels, Lois Lowry's The Giver, is going to be turned into a movie.

According to Variety, Jeff Bridges had been developing a feature version of the popular book for nearly a decade and it is now finally due to be out in 2013.

If you haven't read the book yet, it's a classic for children, teens, and adults. It follows 12-year-old Jonas, who lives in a futuristic society where all memory of human history (and suffering) has been erased. When, on is birthday, he learns that he has been designated to take on the role of the Giver, the one who will retrieve all of human memories, he learn that blocking all pain and suffering comes at a high cost.
