Well one is happy to see that a new version of the seminal UK character (check it out via 2000AD) Jugde Dredd is going to seak funding at Cannes. An Indian film company called Reliance Big Entertainment has partnered with some other big names. No stars on board, but cue the discussion of who why and wherefore. Hmm Russell Crowe maybe, who knows, but I would like to see someone not teen friendly that’s for sure. Let the debate bring on who will utter the immortal line, “I AM THE LAW!” …Daniel Craig could do it now his Bong gig in the air?
Orlando Bloom is going to go 3d as he will play a Duke in the new version of The Three(d) musketeers. I am sure Alexander Dumas would be spinning around if he new what his story is becoming. Well regardless I wonder if anyone remembers the little seen version of the story from recent years. In 2001 they remixed the story with Kung Fu, and got something called “The Musketeer” more a hit with martial arts fans on DVD I believe than with cinema goers. It even had Tim Roth and erm…the bloke from Grey’s Anatomy (?)
Cathch the trailer here bodkins!
Just a quick one today, catch you on the flip side,
Peace and love
