Directed by acclaimed filmmaker J.A. Bayona (The OrphanageThe Impossible) comes the anticipated film adaptation of the low fantasy drama, A Monster Calls. Starring Liam Neeson as “The Monster,” the upcoming Spanish-British movie based off Patrick Ness’s novel of the same name is set in present-day England and follows 13-year-old boy named Conor O’Malley (Lewis McDougall) who struggles to accept his mother’s (Felicity Jones) terminal cancer and chemotherapy, just as he meets a mysterious tree-man named “The Monster.” Sigourney Weaver also stars as Conor’s grandmother.

Ness’s critically acclaimed novel A Monster Calls was originally conceived by the late British author Siobhan Dowd, who herself passed from terminal illness in 2007 before she could finish writing it. Prior to her death Dowd contracted editor Denise Johnstone-Burt of Walker Books who brought her colleague Ness to complete the project. This year they’ll see the story come to life on the big screen. Catch A Monster Calls when it hits theaters October 14.
