Following the success of the English mini-series (which I wrote about last time) they are apparently turning LIA into a fully fledged movie due out next year. There isn’t much around about the film, sadly enough, but I did hear that they are probably going to set our heroine in New York, rather than London as it was in the 2008 mini series.
Sony pictures are the big fish in this LIA pond, and although a lot of the information was readily available not long ago, everyone has apparently been checking back and seeing LESS information than before. From reading on a few forums, there have been rumours around that Debra Messing may be starring in the film- although on what that is founded I am completely unaware.
Last February there was a piece in the Guardian that included the following little details:
- Sam Mendes will be the producer
- Guy Andrews (who apparently helped write the mini series) is doing some of the script
- Mammoth Screen will be the independent producing company behind it: Damien Timmer, Michele Buck.
- In collab with Neal Street Productions: inc. Sam Mendes, Pippa Harris.
But what’s happening? There aren’t even cast details up, nor a month of release… is it possible they have canned it so soon?
