Coming Soon: Kafka’s Metamorphosis, The New Movie

We want to be excit­ed about the lat­est film ver­sion of Franz Kafka’s 1915 novel­la The Meta­mor­pho­sis (get free etext here), espe­cial­ly because it’s an indie pro­duc­tion, and we just can’t see the exis­ten­tial dra­ma of Gre­gor Sam­sa’s jour­ney from human to insect sur­viv­ing a major stu­dio adap­ta­tion. Fur­ther­more, we love Nick Searcy in the F/X dra­ma, Jus­ti­fied, and we’re hap­py to see him on the big screen.

We can accept the mar­ket­ing twist of turn­ing Sam­sa into a 17-year-old boy, but after see­ing the con­cept art in the film­mak­ers’ trail­er, we’re won­der­ing if the pro­posed fea­ture’s biggest star might be the spe­cial effects. Give it a watch and let us know what you think.
