It's true! Mother of pearl!
Well, I guess I can't blame Avi Arad for this one. Still, the movie industry needs to tone down it's output of comic based franchises, especially when they're probably really going to piss off the target audience (i.e. actual fans, which I can't say I am one but if I were... I wouldnae be too happy). A zany comedy i.e. the mask? Huh...
Yeah, I've heard about the Monty Python musical... I rather think it's a good idea! Eric Idle's writing some of it, so we know it's in good hands. Plus Tim Curry has signed on for King Arthur, and Hank Azaria and David Hyde Peirce have also jumped aboard. I'm rather optimistic about that one.
