The Things They Carried Adaptation

The Things They Carried Adaptation: Everything We Know So Far

The Things They Carried adaptation will be an interesting movie to follow. Based on a book comprised of short stories all connected to the main character and his troop during the Vietnam War. But intentionally blurring the line between fiction and non-fiction using the authors personal experiences of being a solider in the war. Personally, I’m surprised they didn’t go down the series/limited series route, but it might just be an adaptation of one or a few of the short stories. This project is still in early stages so we’ll find out more as it goes along.
