One of my most awaited films that I would like to watch this year — apart from Transformers — is Nancy Drew. Now I thought this movie was just a rumor or at least still in the planning stage but I was wrong. The movie is already done and will be shown in local cinemas this coming August. I’m actually a bit surprised by this since I’ve never heard any latest news about it on leading entertainment channels (i.e., E! News or Entertainment Tonight), and that it will shown already this year. Maybe I just missed it.
Anyway, I’m super excited when I first found out that it will already be shown this year. I can’t wait to see this film. I have read countless Nancy Drew books when I was growing up and it has been one of my favorite young adult books (aside from Sweet Dreams and Sweet Valley High of course). I pride myself in still remembering the characters in the Nancy Drew series. There’s Nancy’s boyfriend, Ned and her two best friends Bess and George. I still even remember some of the stories I loved such as “The Tale of the Twisted Candle” or “The Mystery of the 99 Steps.”
The Nancy Drew film stars Emma Roberts (Julia Roberts’ niece) as the teen sleuth and Tate Donovan as Nancy’s father, Drew Carson. I’m not too sure about Emma playing Nancy. I mean, I never seen her act yet. I hope she doesn’t screw up the character.
I remember there was a Nancy Drew TV series a few years ago and I only saw a couple of episodes of it. But I guess the show didn’t last long since it hardly got any media hype. I didn’t even know about the show until I came across it while I was channel surfing. The actress who played Nancy wasn’t too appealing — acting-wise, that is.
Anyway, I hope the Nancy Drew movie will be really good and I won’t get disappointed.
