I finished my last post with “see you in 2012”, but there’s one last thing I’d like to squeeze in before 2011 goes out…
A week or so ago I tweeted that someone had found their way to the Mrs Darcy web site using the search term “darcy versus the aliens film”, which resulted in a brief exchange of ideas between myself and the lovely Amy McLean (remember her review?), in the course of which we both decided that Tim Burton would be a perfect choice of director for such a project – if only because it would mean we’d almost certainly be able to get Helena Bonham-Carter as Charlotte that way, to say nothing of Johnny Depp as Byron.
What follows is entirely unsolicited, with no further input from me. Apart from, as you can probably imagine, a vigorous shaking of the head when she asked me if I minded her doing this. Do please share this video as widely as you can. For Amy’s sake, obviously. Not mine. Definitely not mine.
And that definitely is it for 2011. Have fun tonight and don’t do anything silly, OK?
