Ah, that's good to know....
5 million would be one cheap-ass production.

Paul is just trying to score some points with Keira, Maybe she'll blow him a kiss while he's camped in her back yard.

question?
is this going to be spoken in Shakespearean like Romeo & Juliet was like cause i might find it hard to understand but still it should be good if it is, might be hard for keira to speak like that i wouldn't know what i would be saying at all if that was me can't read normal english well as it is :lol:

if this film really will have text like in hamlet, than this will be great innovation for keira and great challenge too. mel gibson did it, good, and we all know how high level he have. now keira can try in this way. but i think that film was with normal text, not with poem text, because that film is very hard to make for everybody from actors to producers, but those film have very high value.

Keiraweb's Youtube account is still suspended, don't think its ever gonna get unblocked. Has Paul got a new account for youtube or sumthin, or can someone recommend an existing channel on youtube dedicated to Keira as a replacement for Keiraweb account.

Indeed....
Although I will admit one thing about the King Lear project: it has a great overall cast.

I hate to admit it but I'm with Mandy on this one. Why not do a romantic comedy or a sci-fi that makes you poop your pants.

The $35 million film was announced at the Cannes Film Festival and will feature epic battle sequences, according to its makers.

That's all I need to want to see it.

The rumour is actually that Naomi Watts will be the third sister Goneril, alongside Keira as Cordiela.

this is great news :D
the film looks like its going to be BIG great cast looks like this must be popular in the film buisness to get all the lead female characters played by oscar nomitied/winning actresses its a very star studded cast and they said you would see some other big name stars in the flim playing smaller parts :D
keira would be VERY VERY VERY!!! stuiped not to do this film

yes she does old films but there not all the same there all in different time periods others actresses that don't do time periods films are ALWAYS doing flim in nowadays time ALWAYS THE SAME how come you never morn at them atlease keira changes to different years in each her films which some never do yet people don't morn at them at all, Cameron Daiz ALWAYS do the same Rom-Coms films how come she doesn't get slatted for it.
its not about keira always doing old films its about how good of a script it is when she gets offered one if keira turned this down it would be the biggest mistake shes made cause with the big cast like this she would've been easierly replaced and for what? so she can look at other films that are nowadays times yes, and are a totally crappy lame script,

Kate Winslet got the same thing when she was keira's age she always did old time films but then she came across a great script called "Eternal Sunshine of the spotlessmind" and really wanted to be apart of the great film she got the part and a oscar nomition (should've won really hillary swank wasn't as good as kate in her film) and now dictors can see kates great in a wide range of films and offer her parts in nowadays movies that are also great films too. i think that might happen to keira one day

Shakespearean is not a language. Romeo and Juliet, as were all of Shakespeare's plays, were written so the general public of the time could understand it, albeit with some of Shakespeare's own little touches. The plays were written in English. That said, I do not know if the film will be in modern English or if it will be following the original play.

Supposedly Naomi Watts is in this too? Looking forward to that if it's true.

According to the internet movie database it is true.

The film seems to have a stellar cast...I'm just a little confused as to why the guy who wrote and directed 'swing vote' is directing the project...Kenneth Branagh, please?

BTW-To Duckula--this is my last post--I'm heeding your advice and trying harder to--well actually--I'm just leaving.

It has been fun KKW, best wishes.
