Tell you alot doesn’t it? Not… Lucky for you (and me) Patti made up an unofficial Remember Me site (Which I’ve been pimping non-stop for the past day and a half) which you can find here. There’s alot of info on her site regarding the movie. You can also follow her on Twitter here.
Here’s a snippet from her site:
Remember Me FAQs:
There are some very slight spoilers at the end here, but nothing that hasn’t been discussed in Summit’s press releases and it is nothing that is really too plot related.
1. Is this movie based on a book?
No. It is based on a orginial screenplay by Will Fetters that was reworked by Jenny Lumet. It has nothing to do with a novel by Sophie Kinsella, Melvyn Bragg, or Nicholas Sparks.
2. When will this film be released?
It is scheduled to be released on February 12, 2010 in the US.
3. What will it be rated?
It isn’t know yet, but based on some of the language and sexuality in the script, it is suspected it will be given an R rating in the US. As soon as it is known, it will be posted.
4. Are Rob/Pierce/Emilie using their native or American accents?
Rob has mentioned in interviews that he will be using an American accent in this movie. The surname for the character was supposedly changed from Roth to Hawkins, and some people speculate that this may have enabled Pierce to use his native accent, but it is not known for certain.
5. Do you know where they are filming and when does the filming end?
Filming took place in the New York City area, but most, if not all of the filming has been completed. Some of the principle actors have already finished, including Rob, who is currently in Vancouver on the set of Eclipse.
***Edit 8/26 Film is now in Post Production
6. What has changed from the original script?
Based in information gleaned from Summit’s press releases, it is known that Michael’s death has been changed to a suicide. And as a child, Ally witnessed her mother’s murder. Other than that, it has been stated that most of the changes were dialog based.
