War Horse Adapted to Film

The phenomenal, widely adored play War Horse has hit the big screen. Steven Spielberg was moved by the book and play… War Horse ‘reached’ into his heart and ‘pulled something out of it’ making him want to make the film as soon as possible.  It’s his first film since 2008 and will be released in the UK on 13 January 2012 (note: Tintin was made after War Horse). Spielberg chose mostly British actors for the leading roles including Jeremy Irvine, Tom Hiddleston, Celine Buckens, and Robert Emms to name a few.  Though not much can replace the book and play, the film is sure to touch the hearts of its viewers.
