Speaking of the stage version of the short story and movie, writer Annie Proulx said (via The Hollywood Reporter): Brokeback Mountain has been recreated in various forms, each with its own distinctive moods and impact. Ashley’s script is fresh and deeply moving, opening up lines of sight not seen in the original or subsequent treatments. Robinson, on the other hand, added: “I am honored to have been entrusted by Annie Proulx to bring new life in a new form to her timeless and universal story. A story that means so much to so many and will surely mean as much for a whole new generation.”
