Twitter reacts to 'Lord of the Flies' all-female reboot
Warner Bros. announced this week a "Lord of the Flies" all-female reboot, written and directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel. According to Deadline.com, the adaptation of William Golding's 1954 novel will remain true to the original, but "with one major twist: The young students stranded on a remote island who descend into a savage social order will be girls." Here's how Twitter is reacting:
Um, having taught Lord of the Flies a few times, and reading Golding's reasoning behind it... an all-female remake misses the point.
