Kevin Smith Bit

Now here's an interesting tidbit about Clerks II.

It seems that Kevin Smith has already recorded a running commentary for the film. The plan is to release it as a podcast when Clerks II hits theaters. That way, you can donwload it to your MP3 player, take it to the theatre, and hit play when the movie starts. Voilla! The world's first theatrical running commentary.

It'a an interesting concept. I know several TV shows are already doing it.

Now here's some very interesting movie news. Guillmero Del Toro (director of Hellboy) and Alfonso Cuaron (director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) are teaming up to do a movie!

The film will be a new adaptation of Roald Dahl's novel The Witches. Del Toro will adapt it for the screen and direct...Cuaron will produce.

The Witches is about a young boy who stumbles upon a witches' convention, and overhears the witches plan to eradicate all children from the face of the Earth. The witches discover the kid, and turn the kid into a mouse. In his new mousely form, the kid sets out to thwart the wiches' plot.

It was turned into a movie back in 1990. It was Jim Henson's final film.
