News - British Special

  • The film version of Brideshead Revisited is finally set to be made. It has been rumoured for years, with Jude Law linked to the role of Sebastian, but I think he is too old now so someone else will probably be cast. Filming starts this summer and other stars rumoured include the highly annoying Matthew Goode and Emily Blunt, and the lovely James McAvoy.
  • After the success of the film adaptations of Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility and Mansfield Park, it is now Jane Austen's life which is to be made into a movie. It is called Becoming Jane Austen, and she will be played by an American, Anne Hathaway, with other stars including Maggie Smith, Julie Walters and James McAvoy. Filming is completed and it should be out in a few months.
  • Another novel soon to be released on the 'big screen' is Ian McEwan's Atonement. It stars Keira Knightley, Romola Garai (who I must say I can't stand) and, guess who, James McAvoy! Is there anything he's not going to be in this year? I think it's deserved, though - he's a good actor and rather attractive too. I'm not complaining!
