VERY exciting script review over at Film Ick– Neil Gaiman’s DEATH screenplay! And from what I read, it sounds pretty amazing. The detailed review itself– very well written, btw– is full of spoilers, so be careful, even if you’ve read the graphic novel.
MY biggest complaint is the new title– DEATH AND ME. Umm, no. Let’s stick with “The High Cost of Living” please. The new one sounds way too cute for my tastes. Other than that though, all the points highlighted make it sound as though Gaiman has recreated the magic of his book perfectly… not that anyone had reason to doubt him.
I, for one, can’t wait for this film to happen. Shia Labeouf is considered a sure thing to play Sexton Furnival, now the question is, who is our DiDi? I’ve often said Kiera Knightley, but some folks look at me like I’m crazy when I suggest it. Who would you cast? Anna Paquin? Christina Ricci? Zooey Deschanel?
As always, I’m desperate to do some script reviews of my own here at Scramble Network. If anyone’s got a copy of this script they’re willing to share, I’d be ETERNALLY grateful. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
