The Third Spur has been granted an exclusive view of Michael Bay’s new adaptation of Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” set to be released Summer 2015. Carle’s novel tells the story of a growing caterpillar with an insatiable appetite… for destruction.
An early look at the script tells the story of how scientists discover a large rock deep in the Amazon River basin that they transport to New York City. The rock turns out to actually be an egg, and when it hatches on Monday, this Very Hungry Caterpillar eats through the Big Apple.
“Oh yeah, it’s gonna be totally awesome,” bragged Vince Anderson, the 14 year old effects advisor for the production during our interview. “The Caterpillar is like 200 feet long and really cool and gross looking.There’s like, this one scene, where the audience gets to see like, the inside of the caterpillar when Megan Fox gets eaten. And there’s gonna be like, 50 explosions and shit. I’m sooo stoked to see it.”
Hardcore fans of Carle’s book need not worry, as Bay has vowed to stay as close to his source material as possible, and has even brought Eric Carle on board as a consultant for the production team. “Never before has the technology been available to faithfully adapt my vision,” Carle explained. “But today, we have the ability to make the caterpillar as I first imagined it. And Michael Bay is the man to make it all happen.”
