Are You Ready for a 3-D Version of "Hamlet?" It's Also a Musical! 


A 3-D musical version of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet" is being planned by Elsinore Films.

The movie will be the first of six adaptations of Shakespeare's plays based on musical version by U.K. theater company Shakespeare 4 Kidz (is that the medieval spelling of kids?).

The other five films in the series are "Macbeth," "Romeo and Juliet," "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Twelfth Night" and "The Tempest."

British playwright John Godber is set to direct.

The first three films in the series will be produced back to back over 18 months.

As far as "Hamlet" is concerned, the producers want to include a ghost that hovers in front of your eyes, cannon fire that flies into the auditorium, and a sword fight with multiple angle views.

Hhhmmmmm, the best 3-D movies are the ones with less gimmicks, just keep that in mind :happy

A True Sequel to "Blair Witch Project" Being Planned 


"Blair Witch Project" was a phenomenon and the filmmakers, Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick, were faced with a conundrum. How could they top its $250 million success?

Capitalizing on the film's worldwide buzz, the crappy "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2" was released to a resounding thud!

Now, Sanchez and Myrick are planning a true sequel to the first "Blair Witch" although they admit they're still trying to figure out which direction to take.

Sanchez and Myrick revealed to BBC News:

"Ideally, each Blair Witch film would be a completely different kind of movie. We've thought about doing a film that takes place in the late 1700s and looks like a [Stanley] Kubrick movie with gritty looking people and lighting.

"But now, we're thinking about going back and and seeing what happened directly after the first film finished.

"I think it will have some kind of video element in it, but it won't be a first person hand-held movie."

As for the actors? The filmmakers revealed:

"I (Myrick) talk to Josh (Leonard) quite regularly and Mike Williams as well. Actually, he had a role in my last movie.

"Heather, I haven't seen in years. The last I heard, she had got out of the business and gone up north and is living on a ranch somewhere.

"Maybe she's still traumatised," he adds.

My Super Funny One-on-One Interviews with the cast of "THE GOODS: LIVE HARD. SELL HARD." From Alan Thicke to Jeremy Piven, See What the Stars Reveal! 


First of, have I told you how much I love this film? It's SUPER-FUNNY! But, the greatest comedies have underlying tones of despair, and the characters in "The Goods" certainly have lots of those, hence, the funnies :happy

Make it the super funnies!

From the folks who gave us "Talladega Nights" and "Stepbrothers," "The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard" is one of the best comedies of the summer, perhaps the year!

Directed by Neil Brennan from the script by Andy Stock and Rick Stempson, this film ain't a clunker! Paramount has great timing with the whole Cash for Clunkers program.

You'll find a new, perhaps, respect for used car salesman! "The Goods" opens this Friday, Aug. 14th, so don't miss it!

Are You Ready for a Film Based on...LEGO? See Which One's Piecing It Together! 


Toy-based films are taking over Hollywood! Argh!!!!

"Transformers" franchise is a great success, "G.I. Joe" is right behind it, then coming up next we'll have Monopoly, Candyland, Battleship, Stretch Armstrong, View-Master, Max Steel, Hot Wheels and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

Argh part 2!!!

Now, Warner Bros. is toying with the idea of building a film based on Lego.

Dan and Kevin Hageman are writing the script for this family comedy (what else???) that will mix live action and animation. WB is not revealing the plot, but this we know -- it's an action adventure set in a Lego world!

Dan Lin, executive producer of the upcoming "Shorts" and "Sherlock Holmes" will be in charge of the film.

Do you know that many directors and producers have thought of making a movie based on Lego? But the Danish toymaker turned them all down because it's highly protective of it's building blocks brand!

The only movies that Lego has produced based on its brand are the direct-to-DVD animated flicks under its Bionicle line.

So what changed the toymaker's mind? According to Variety, the company sparked to Lin and the Hageman brothers' embrace of core values Lego wanted to include in a film, especially "a fun factor, creativity and that imagination has no boundaries."

So far, the film's been in development for more than a year and the filmmakers have been traveling to Denmark to piece the movie together!
