Tim O’Brien’s classic Vietnam War novel “The Things They Carried” is being adapted for the big screen and advertises a star-studded cast that includes Tom Hardy (“Mad Max: Fury Road”, “The Revenant”) and Tye Sheridan ( “Ready Player One”, “Mud”), Stephan James (“If Beale Street Could Talk”), Bill Skarsgard (“It”, “The Devil All the Time”), Ashton Sanders (“Moonlight”) and Pete Davidson ( “The King of Staten Island”), among others.
O’Brien’s book was published in 1990 and contains a collection of short stories based on his experience in the Vietnam War as a member of the Army’s 23rd Infantry Division. Upon its release, it became one of the preeminent works of the war and was named a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize’s fiction category.
Tom Hardy and Dean Baker’s production company, who led the effort, characterized O’Brien’s novel as “his seminal masterpiece – a raw, unwavering, and emotionally truthful literary experience, filtered through a kaleidoscope of memory that is immobile . “” According to a statement on Deadline.
“We are all deeply excited and honored to be fortunate enough to work with Tim to bring his all-important classic to the big screen. Along with our incredible cast of Rupert, Scott and David, we look forward to making what we think is possible an important film. “
Scott B. Smith is in charge of script adaptation, his career culminating when he was nominated for an Oscar for writing in Sam Raimi’s 1998 film “A Simple Plan”.
The only source of concern could be the film’s director Rupert Sanders, whose most notable credits include “Snow White and the Hunter” and “Ghost in the Shell,” films that have received criticism from most critics and moviegoers alike.
However, uncertainty can be removed by knowing that O’Brien’s will have a lot of leverage on the narrative process.
“The Things They Carried” has long been recognized for its apolitical approach to analyzing the Vietnam War, a factor that has led to its widespread dissemination among a diverse audience including middle and high school students, military historians and veterans. By the book’s 20th anniversary in 2010, more than 2 million copies had been sold.

Following Hardy and Baker, the film’s co-producer, David Zander, called the book “a timeless story about the human heart. It’s about fear, courage and friendship. It’s about growing up, sticking together in the face of terrible events … or not. ”Sticking together at all. It’s about death. And how to live on after death. It’s about the weight of the things we all carry.
„[It] has reached his stature precisely because it’s about so much more than war – just as “To Kill A Mockingbird” is about so much more than life in Jim Crow South or “The Great Gatsby” so much more than the roaring 20s, ”continued Zander. “The handful of books that are becoming rites of passage in the American educational system are chosen because they answer universal questions, and” The Things They Carried “stands shoulder to shoulder with them.”
Filming is expected to begin in early 2021 pending unexpected delays due to COVID-19.
