the lovely bones poster

A poster has been released for Peter Jackson‘s upcoming drama, The Lovely Bones. The film stars Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz as parents grieving over the death of their young teenage daughter. The cast also includes several Oscar winners and nominees such as Susan Sarandon and Saoirse Ronan.

Take a look at the poster’s debut…


The Lovely Bones will also co-star Stanley Tucci as the murdering neighbor, who is behind the death of Ronan’s character. The film is based off the novel by Alice Sebold, and has been in the making for a few years. Originally there were rumors that Ryan Gosling was set to star in the role of the mourning father, but due to creative differences he left the project. I’m happy he made that decision, because I would not buy him as the parent of a teenager.

The film hits theaters in limited release on December 11th, and nationwide on January 15, 2010.
