I'm visiting the How I Live Now film set on Monday August 13th. Want to come?
If you're between 13 and 19 (or can forge ID that proves you're much older/younger than you really are) here's your big chance to win a visit to the film set of How I Live Now. You'll meet Saoirse Ronan and find out exactly how exciting, difficult (and sometimes unglamorous) movie-making is, and I'll be there too, shouting CUT! when I think I could direct better than Kevin MacDonald. At which point he will order a large steam roller from the transport department and have me flattened into a Meg-shaped disk and posted to Timbuktu. (Just a little crazed fantasy there. Having seen lots of the rushes already, I'd say that Kevin seems to be pretty much a genius.)
And as for Daisy (Saoirse Ronan) and Piper (Harley Bird), you will forget any image you ever had in your head of them the minute you see the actors, so make sure you read the book FIRST and make up your own mind.
Get to the Spinebreakers website and enter the competition now. It closes on August 6th.
Hope to meet you in glorious 3-D soon.
