CATEGORIES Movie NewsMark Twain may have published "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" eight years before "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," but don't tell that to Paramount.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the studio plans on adapting the famous Mark Twain novels into a film called "Huck and Tom."
But! There's a catch: The story will feature Sawyer and Finn as grown-ups, and include "supernatural elements." (Initiate mass groan from literature aficionados.)
"Huck and Tom" is the latest in a long line of Sawyer-Finn film adaptations, and is not to be confused with "Tom and Huck," the 1995 film with Jonathan Taylor Thomas, nor "Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn," the upcoming flick starring Joel Courtney ("Super 8") that Variety reported on last year.
"Huck and Tom" currently has no release date.
