Some of us are maybe growing impatient with The Road: the release, first expected in November 2008, has been pushed to 2009 without any official date yet... Rumors of a straight to DVD release are even surfacing. But most would rather see a theatrical release as soon as possible.
Fortunately Viggo Mortensen, who plays the role of the Man in The Road, is here to reassure us (via AICN) that the movie is in good hands:
They better make it right indeed! People who have read Cormac McCarthy's book would not forgive a loose adaptation of the novel. So, even if we have to wait a bit more, it's worth it. Just by judging from the pictures of The Road I feel it could contend for an Oscar: both Viggo and Kodi looks amazing in their respective roles as father and son.
