Movie adaptation of "The Road"

Charlize Theron will be joining Viggo Mortensen in the movie adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's "The Road." I really don't like the idea of making a movie out of the book. I think the book is beautiful and sparse and I don't want to see it translated onto the screen. And how much are they going to show? Are they going to show dead baby carcass roasted on a spit? Or maybe a dirty, skinny naked boy bathing for the first time in weeks? I don't know; this idea vexes me.

So skeptical as well; a good book does not a good movie make. The Great Gatsby anyone? Of course we know why The Fountainhead projects rarely get off the ground!

This had better be good.
