    In what seems like a perfect match, Terry Gilliam looks to be directing a film based on the tales of The Brothers Grimm.

    Sounds pretty cool so far! [​IMG]

    Scott,

    Definitely sounds cool! I loved his style in Munchausen so here's to hoping he gets in the director's chair!

    Sounds interesting. A slightly skewed version of the MGM-Cinerama film "The Wonderful World Of The Brothers Grimm".

    But isn't everything Gilliam does "slightly skewed"? [​IMG]

    Sounds good, but after having seen the excruciatingly sad Lost in La Mancha, I won't believe it until I'm sitting in the theater and the credits are rolling.

    Nope. I know the 'family-friendly' new versions. Me dummy.

    If it makes you feel any better, I'd also applaud a Paul Verhoeven- directed version of the ORIGINAL tales...even though I've never even read 'em.

    Rex,

    I'm very familiar with the original stories, having read a collection of the tales a number of times. I think he could do a great job with them.

    Well, it does depend, of course, on the nature of the given project, but . . . . I say he's NOT.

    Well, for me, it was the movie 12 Monkeys that made me think Gilliam would be the perfect choice for a film on The Grimm Brothers. I guess I was thinking along a specific style of filmmaker, rather than one who is devoted to a particular genre. Gilliam is diverse and makes films for all types of subjects, that's what I feel a story on The Grimm Brothers would need...that type of ability to cross species. One thing that I am sure of, is that Gilliam wouldn't go for the superficial. He wouldn't film a Grimm Bros. movie with the sole intention of making it a graphic horror film, as would probably be the case of so many of the young directors working today. This is why I want Gilliam to direct a film like this. It's the layers.
