The Road – Concept art for adaption of Cormac McCarthy’s excellent book

Posted by LiveFor on April 21, 2009

It has been an absolute age since there was anything new about The Road. It was due out last year but has pushed back and is now due out in October, 2009.

Now Quiet Earth (via /Film) have found a Flickr stream that has a load of Style Frames for The Road – Water colours, pencil sketches and photo montage based on actual location photos.

It is an absolutely stunning book, haunting, melancholy, horrific in places yet strangely uplifting and these images capture just a little of that.

I really want to see the film as I am curious how they will portray some of the scenes (especially those set at night).

Directed by John Hillcoat, screenplay by Joe Penhall. Production Design by Chris Kennedy. The Road stars Viggo Mortenson, Robert Duvall, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Kodi Smit-McPhee

What are your thoughts on the style frames? Are you excited about seeing the film or did you think the book as wa great big waste of paper?

    This has to be one of the best books I’ve read. Poignant, tear-jerking and profound, yet it does give you the feeling that even facing the most horrific difficulties imaginable Humankind can rise above it all and something as simple as a father’s love for his child can be all-conquering. I hope the film does the book justice.
