Although we’ve read about some production controversy, many anglers and TUers are excited to see a movie version of the prolific David James Duncan book The River Why. Duncan is reportedly producing his own version of the movie with A River Runs Through It producer Patrick Markey, while another version starring Zach Gilford, Amber Heard and William Hurt is coming out this year.
And while many anglers have a love-hate relationship with “the movie” that made angling stylish, some are wondering if either version of The River Why movie will have the same cultural impact for fly-fishing. Outside magazine explores this idea in a February article. What do you think?
