Pierce Brosnan, Martin Campbell to Adapt Ernest Hemingway Novel 'Across The River And into The Trees'
I read Hemingway's World War II combat correspondent dispatches before I read his WWII novel, Across the River and into the Trees, so I was disappointed in his fictional take on the war.
I thought the novel was mostly dull and considering that Hemingway had covered the biggest war in history and wrote some compelling and insightful journalism pieces, I think he should have written a war novel based on his reporting. Hemingway's short story about combat in WWII France, Black Ass at the Cross Roads, shows what might have been if Hemingway had written a true WWII novel.
Now the Hollywood Reporter reports that actor Pierce Brosnan and director Martin Campbell are going to make a film based on Across the River and into the Trees.
