And now for something completely different… I know, two posts in one day? Inconceivable. But there are only 22 hours or so left to support this film, and I want this to happen so very badly.
Here’s what I’m talking about:
Enemy of Man is an ambitious feature length retelling of William Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, Macbeth.
This will be the feature directorial debut of actor Vincent Regan. Vincent is no stranger to Shakespeare. Although known for such films as The Messenger, 300, and Troy, he is a veteran of the Royal Shakespeare and National theaters and has directed and acted in Macbeth on the London stage.
Oh, and the cast so far?
Macbeth - Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings), BAFTA nominee
Ross - Rupert Grint (Harry Potter, Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman)
Duncan - Charles Dance (Game of Thrones, Aliens 3), Emmy nominee
Lady Macbeth – Announcement coming soon!
Banquo - James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World)
MacDuff - Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels)
Kern - Neil Maskell (Kill List, Atonement)
Lord, people, that’s nearly enough to all but kill a poor fangirl. I’m dying to see who they cast as Lady M – and I only hope they get the chance; see, the thing’s not a done deal. It’s got a Kickstarter campaign, which has had $213,661 pledged of their $250,000 goal, and there’s less than 22 hours left to go. I am so tempted to go into full PBS-Pledge-Drive mode, but I’d be awful at it, so … I’m just going to leave this here. And cross all my fingers and toes. And whatever else can be crossed.
See, now, if I had gotten on (and won) Jeopardy last time, there would be no problems …
