Is it just me that this website hates? It took 7 attempts to post the thread about my driving, and 13 attempts (so far) to post this.
The Daily Mail has been given the first run of the trailer of the movie that Weinstein Co have been crazy enough to make about me. I have watched one of the edits of the movie, and the director, David Frankel has done an incredible job as have the actors/actresses.
The essence of the movie is correct. Certain things have been changed and the timelines are different which will be clarified by my autobiography (or memoir as the publisher will call it). My book is over 250 pages long, the screenplay is much shorter and things always have to be summarised to work in a film. I'm comfortable with it and I specifically asked that it was a comedy that didn't take itself too seriously which is what Justin Zackham the screenplay writer (who also wrote The Bucket List) has provided.
All the adult singing is mine. It was strange watching James' mouth open and shut and have my voice coming out. Am off to Toronto on Sunday to attend the worldwide premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.
