READING: Michael Punke De spookverschijning Het boek dat de inspiratiebron is van de film The Revenant Lees het boek dat de inspiratiebron is van de internationale bioscoopfilm The Revenant Het is 1823. Langs de rivier de Missouri trekt de 36-jarige avonturier Hugh Glass met een groep pelsjagers een onbekend en zeer gevaarlijk gebied in. Glass ondervindt dit gevaar aan den lijve wanneer hij op brute wijze wordt aangevallen door een grizzlybeer. Dagenlang balanceert hij op het randje van de dood. Zijn medereizigers houden het voor gezien: ze stelen zijn wapens en laten Glass alleen in de wildernis achter. De woede om deze laffe daad geeft de stervende man nieuwe kracht en hij zweert wraak. In de maanden die volgen onderneemt Glass - alleen en ongewapend - een onvoorstelbare tocht van bijna 5000 kilometer door de onherbergzame Amerikaanse wildernis, voortgedreven door de drang naar vergelding. De spookverschijning is een avonturenthriller over verraad en wraak, gebaseerd op een waargebeurde geschiedenis. Michael Punke is de Amerikaanse ambassadeur en permanent vertegenwoordiger bij de Wereldhandelsorganisatie in Genève. Hij groeide op in Wyoming, vlak bij de route die Hugh Glass aflegde. Nu verfilmd als The Revenant door de Oscar-genomineerde regisseur Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, Biutiful en 21 Grams), met in de hoofdrollen Leonardo DiCaprio en Tom Hardy.

So when he is contacted by a medium "of some renown" and asked to investigate a murder, he jumps at the chance to get out of the city.

Along for the ride is Conan Doyle's good friend Oscar Wilde, and together they work to narrow down the list of suspects, which includes a mysterious foreign Count, a levitating magician, and an irritable old woman with a "familiar." Meanwhile, Conan Doyle is enchanted by the plight of the capricious Hope Thraxton, who may or may not have a more complicated back-story than it first appears. As Conan Doyle and Wilde participate in séances and consider the possible motives of the assembled group, the clock ticks ever closer to Hope's murder, in The Revenant of Thraxton Hall by Vaughn Entwistle.

READING: The Revenant was an unlikely movie to become a worldwide phenomenon: a punishing, austere art film about a 19th-century trapper, with a nearly three- hour runtime, and almost no dialogue. The exacting vision of director Alejandro G. I��rritu had caused its production to spin out of control, both financially and even physically, taking a terrible toll on stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy. Hollywood insiders predicted it would soon be a cautionary tale on par with the legendary flop Heaven's Gate. Yet there was method to I��rritu's supposed madness, and when The Revenant was finally released, its uncompromising realism and originality took both critics and the box office by storm. In this convenient, fast-paced book, James Diamond takes us inside this extraordinary production, from the miseries suffered by its cast and crew to the soaring heights of their creative invention. He traces the story of trapper Hugh Glass from frontier tall-tale to novel to Hollywood, through the remarkable evolutions of its screenplay and the surprising on-set sacrifices needed to complete production. The resulting creative journey is every bit as remarkable-and every bit as thrilling-as Glass's own. Buy Now to Discover: The true story of-and many mysteries surrounding-the real Hugh Glass.
