Diminutive British actress Keira Knightly is starring in the cloning drama Never Let Me Go, based on Kazuo Ishiguro's acclaimed novel. So thinkThe Island, but probably with fewer people exploding and more actual character development.
People are already accusing Knightly's film of being a rehash of The Island. But to be fair, The Island was a rip-off of Parts: The Clonus Horror, which actually filed suit against Bay's movie back in 2005.
This movie, on the other hand, could be a much more intense drama, focusing on the relationships of three young students that grow up inside a boarding school for the sole purpose of raising organ donors. In the book, it sounds like when some of the students became aware of their fate, they've accepted it as their personal life-cycle, or just the way things are. In fact, one of the students' jobs is to comfort a clone who is about to face death, to donate their bits to improve another's life.
The scribe Alex Garland (28 Days Later) will also be producing the picture with award-winning music video director Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo) directing.
