Having heard Nick Barton make the same pitch as turned up in the Telegraph, I am convinced he is trying to keep to the spirit of the book, while adjusting the plot for the modern audience.
The important news is that it is being released on Friday August 19th, and if you want the film to succeed, and gather new young enthusiasts for AR, go and see it on that weekend 19-21st. The film world judges success almost entirely by the first weekend's takings. Waiting till Monday is too late.
I was also told that changing Titty to Tatty was the key to financing the film. "Hollywood accounting" is a strange beast.
