While I was looking for 2012 Movie releases, one of the things I stumbled upon was a list of UK based movies which are slated, if not scheduled for production in the coming days / weeks / months / years....
Some of it made for really interesting reading, so I thought I'd share with you what I've learned.
- Richard Curtis - He of "BlackAdder" and "Love Actually" fame has his name down as the director of a Sci-Fi called "About Time"
- Danny Boyle gets to direct James McAvoy in heist movie "Trance"
- A Martin Scorcesse detective thriller "The Snowman"
- "Alan Partridge: The Movie" - it could happen...
- "Eddie the Eagle" with Rupert Grint. I'm already giggling.
- A zombie outbreak plagues a small English town on Christmas Eve in "Slient Night of the Living Dead"
- The stage musical hist the big screen in "Bombay Dreams"
- "Bridget Jones' Baby" - nothing to say?? Thought not.
- A remake of "Defence of the Realm"
- and of course "Kieth Lemon: The Film" which can only be Bang Tidy.
- Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg back together with Nick Frost for "The World's End"
- A remake of horror movie "Child's Play"
- A second "Dog Soldiers" movie - the werewolves and the army.
And finally - way out in the future.......
- A remake of Terry Gilliam's "Time Bandits"
- There are rumors of another version of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" - although I'm not sure how they can improve on perfection. :-)
Well, there's some food for thought....Discuss.....
