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.

Shakespeare + Keira Knightley + Anthony Hopkins + Historical gowns and settings = me wants to see it.

simple enough
