For any of you desperate to find out what’s happening with the film adaptation of the multi-award winning novel The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, yesterday, they took the first steps towards publicity by tweeting out a poster for the film.

When it is released at the end of January 2014, the film will  star Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson, alongside newcomer Sophie Nelisse as Liesel Meminger, it will also be directed by Downton Abbey’s Brian Percival.

Here’s a quick low-down on the story….

Based on the beloved international bestselling book, The Book Thief tells the story of Liesel, an extraordinary and courageous young girl sent to live with a foster family in World War II Germany.  She learns to read with encouragement from her new family and Max, a Jewish refugee who they are hiding under the stairs.  For Liesel and Max, the power of words and imagination become the only escape from the tumultuous events happening around them.  The Book Thief is a life-affirming story of survival and of the resilience of the human spirit.

As soon as more news  becomes available, I’ll keep you posted.
