Crime/drams, thrillers, and some fairly unusual adaptations in June. . . . Fresh off his role as Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe will star in a remake of the classic All Quiet on the Western Front. A sequel to Men in Black, The Bourne Identity, Clash of the Titans, and Ghost Rider are in the works as well. On the prequel side of things, Carrie Bradshaw’s character will give teenage fans a thrill in The Carrie Diaries. And (finally) a live-action version of the extraordinary children’s book The Wind in the Willows.
