  • Spike Lee to direct Elric, heaven help us

    I happened to be on google this evening seeking information on the status of the movie.Only to find a article from "Entertainment Weekly", only to read that "Spike Lee" is signed on to direct the Elric saga.Now gossip is gossip, though the article also states that "Michael Moorcock" is o.k. with this choice.Safe to say; let me impale myself now and get it over with! I can only hope this is just rumour and nothing more.For those interested in the article click on to google and write casting for Elric saga.The article is only a few topics down on the first page from google.Personally this is the worst choice the mind can imagine.Contraversal he is; though "CLINT OR RIDLEY SCOTT" he is definately not! If anyone is reading this, or can shed light on possiable paronia and hysteria please respond.THANKS P.S.MICHAEL thank you, currently I picked up "WIZARDRY AND WILD ROMANCE". It's very interesting and thought provoking!

      That's a funny joke. I'd like to see Spike do Jerry Cornelius though, that'd be freaking awesome!

          Obviously we are drifting apart more than I thought. Until now it was April 1st in Europa AND America for such jokes

            I'd go with that. Or, the Elric sequel,

            Stormbringer: It's Gotta Have Souls! :D

              There was the Cloudhurler short story by someone with a Jimi incarnation of the EC. He could work that into a full movie. Prince could play the lead.

                Hendrix' white Fender Stratocaster, being the reincarnation of Stormbringer, which only he could play.



                I really want to see this movie, now! :)

                  That was by Tad Williams wasnt it? It was excellent, about some kid having an acid trip and meeting Elric. It was in 'Tales of the White Wolf' I believe.

                    Reading that article, it's pretty obvious it's satire. I mean...

                    Not to mention they claim Mike suggests Denzel for the role of Elric. :lol:

                    But is it good satire? Hmm. Not really, no.

                      I do remember there was some commotion caused by someone suggesting Cuba Gooding as Elric earlier last year.
                      Hmmm.
