I’ve been a bad blogger! I got sick this week and it threw me off. Plus, I’m working my butt off and this angers me but that’s a long story not worth telling. Instead, here’s some fun movie news….
1. It looks like there is a big screen version of I,Claudius in the works. If you’ve never seen the British mini-series, get thee to Netflix. It’s got a hell of a cast and is something to see. We watched it in Latin class in high school – I didn’t get to see it all because I was taking two classes at the same time (also another story) but the mini-series is compelling and full of stellar performances. I’ll be keeping tabs on this new production to see if it gets off the ground. This was really weird though, since I just bought the book to re-read.
2. A Ferris Bueller 2 script is being shopped around Hollywood. I’ve seen this reported in various places and all I have to say is NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is awesome. Leave it be. Click on the above link to see the premise.
3. Michael Gondry, the dude who directed “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” has another film coming out, starring Jack Black and Mos Def. I love Mos Def. Anyway, the film is called “Be Kind, Rewind” and the trailer made me giggle. Especially the Ghostbusters part. Here it is:
Have a good weekend!!
