Let me open with a quiz question: would you go and see a film whereby this guy......
.... plays a 1950's business man atttempting to do a movie deal with a chick played by this chick ....
.... who is a cranky, grumpy ex-Australian author who for 15 years refuses to do the deal?
Then of course the deal is finally done and
they all live happily ever after she gets really pissed off and accuses the business man of ruining her book.
Won you over? What a plot?! What tension?! What resolution?!
Disney have announced that Forrest Gump and Nanny McPhee will be playing Walt Disney and P.L. Travers in the upcoming movie: Saving Mr Banks. I wonder if it will be anything like Saving Private Ryan?
They were inspired by my blog post from last year.
