Kodachrome Goes Hollywood For Big Screen Movie Deal

Posted by David Ozanich — 30 Mar 2011


Remember how the very last Kodachrome processing lab closed late last year? Well, now a touching story of analog versus digital will be brought to the silver screen. Reports Deadline:

Part of the deal is rights to a December 10 article in The New York Times about the last lab that had the chemicals to process Kodachrome in the final days before Kodak retired the photo development system and conceded to digital cameras. The plan is to shape that event--Kodachrome fans ventured to the Kansas lab from all over the country--into a father-son road trip story to reach the lab and process photos before those still photo images are forever lost.

I won't be holding my breath for this to make it to my local cineplex, but it's interesting to see how Kodachrome is becoming fetishized alongside Polaroid now that it's all but disappeared.
