Everyone,
I found a little more info on the Bright Star movie. Apparently, it's slated to be released in 2007 (As soon as Next year??!!! Hooray!) And it will be released in America at one point or another. (Well, that's the plan anyway.) As the movie is apparently still being written, there isn't much more to say about it. But here's what I found in the internet in case you want to check it out.

Here's an article I found about the Bright Star movie. Looks like Campion will have a famous Keats scholar as her writing guide. This is a relief to me as I was concerned the movie might completely change huge aspects of Keats's life--such as ditching his siblings (making it as if they never existed) or something like that.

Campion Guided by BRIGHT STAR

Next film from Oscar winner Jane Campion will focus on the relationship between poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne.

By Mark Umbach, FilmStew.com

Oscar-winning filmmaker Jane Campion, who has recently stunk up the box office with films like Holy Smoke and In the Cut, is prepping her next project, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Reporter notes that Campion is currently writing the screenplay for Bright Star, a romantic period drama for the British arm of France-based Pathe Entertainment, Pathe U.K. No production start date has been set.



The film is based on the three-year romance that developed between 19th century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne. Their relationship was cut short, however, when Keats died at the young age of 25. Andrew Motion, the British poet laureate, will be consulting on the Campion script, which is expected to be given the Pathe in the next few weeks.

Jan Chapman will be producing Bright Star for Campion. Chapman worked with Campion on Holy Smoke and The Piano, which earned Campion both the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Fest and an Oscar for her original screenplay and earned Chapman an Oscar nod for Best Picture.

Campion is currently in Cannes screening her short The Water Diary out of competition. Chapman, meanwhile, is there with Suburban Mayhem from Aussie helmer Paul Goldman

Andrew Motion as a consultant? That's pretty cool! At least we're certain that he knows a thing or two about Keats. :wink: :lol:

Bordeom can reach a kind of ecstacy - an orgasm of dullness if you like :lol:

When you are so bored you're actually bored of being bored :lol:
