Today a design agency which creates webpages for film productions emailed me about the new webpage for the forthcoming film Creation. Here is their press release:
Upcoming film CREATION, starring Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly, announces the launch of new website – http://www.creationthemovie.comCREATION is John Collee’s screen adaptation of the book “Annie’s Box” by Randal Keynes, great, great-grandson of Charles Darwin. Described by Director Jon Amiel as part ghost story, part psychological thriller, part heart-wrenching love story, the film promises a Charles Darwin as you’ve never seen him before. Currently due for release in 2009 to coincide with the bicentenary of Darwin’s birth, the new website offers audiences the chance to follow the film’s development as well as other Darwin commemorations.Showcasing unique content for CREATION, the website newsfeed will provide insights into the filmmaking process as well as linking to relevant stories on partner sites. This is an exciting opportunity to watch the film evolve and to find out more about the young Darwin and his family.HanWay Films, international sales agent, are behind the website and are excited to be a part of a project marking such an important historic figure. Visit the website to find out more about CREATION the movie.
There is also a Facebook group you can join. I am excited about this film – the stills look stunning. I am sure Bettany will be fabulous, but I hope the film captures more about Darwin’s work and the development of his ideas, and doesn’t focus 100% on his fear of religious backlash. We’ll see.
