David Germain at the Associated Press gives a quick rundown on many of the new movies coming up this fall (isn't it great that the summer is finally coming to an end?). Looks like it's going to be a fine fall for literary lovers:

  • Jarhead, based on Anthony Swofford's memoir.
  • Shopgirl, based on Steve Martin's novel.
  • Memoirs Of A Geisha, based on Arthur Golden's acclaimed novel.
  • a remake of All The King's Men, based on Robert Penn Warren's novel.
  • Pride and Prejudice and Oliver Twist, based on the classic novels.

Oh, and there's some movie, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Perhaps you've heard of it?
