SEQUEL TO THE GRADUATE! *hyperventilates*
**Warning – if you don’t like spoilers and haven’t read or seen The Graduate, don’t read this post.***
The guy who wrote the book of The Graduate (on which the film, one of my favorites, is based) just finished a sequel, Home School, which features the return of Ben and Elaine (in their happily married life 10 years later) and….Mrs. Robinson (who I presume is now pretty old!).
***UPDATE (7/19/08): I’ve posted my review of Home School.*****
No idea if a film will come out…. I heard that the guy who directed “Trainspotting” was waiting for his actors to age enough physically before he makes a sequel. Maybe something similar is going on here. As far as I know, the main three characters’ actors are still alive…. 🙂
Oh wait….dammn…..Anne Bancroft died 3 years ago. Crap.
Well, then, no film. But that’s just fine with me.
*****UPDATE: The author put off publishing the book for so long because he was waiting for the film rights held by a certain company to any sequels to The Graduate to expire. There probably won’t be a film anytime soon.*****
