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.

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.

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.
