So Judi Dench said they will start work on Richard III with Benedict this week, and that it’s a huge project and filming will go on ‘for 6 months’.
This makes me a little confused because, wasn’t Sherlock supposed to start filming in January (3 months from now?).
If Ben didn’t have the title…
Pretty sure the “six months” is for the whole of the Hollow Crown series, four plays combined into three films. “‘We start on Monday and it’s a huge project, six months in filming,’ Dench tells Mandrake of this second cycle of The Hollow Crown.” (That’s from the Radio Times, but I’m on my phone and can’t link…)
I am torn - Hiddles did Hollow Crown first and it is awesome so I automatically hate anyone who attempts to do Hollow Crown now. But I like Dench and BC - they would have to come up with one hella kickass version of Hollow Crown to get me to like their version.
EDIT: Wait, what, Richard the Third? D’oh. It might be ok. The WWII version with whatshisface was pretty good tho’ - Dench and BC would really have to come up with a decent version to overcome it.
?? It has nothing to do with Hiddles doing it “first”. 1. Jeremy Irons did it first, 2. It’s about Richard III , Hiddles did some other chap. Keep Hiddles away from this tag please.
