Champions Movie!!!  
I read today that they are making a movie of The Champions! (If you've no idea what that is, which I suspect goes for most, it's a 60s British spy show about three people with powers). I'm quite excited by the prospect because it's a show that I've thought for years was gagging for an update, because in the original show their powers were a bit...well crap, because they didn't have the FX or budget and now it could look so cool.

But, updates of classic shows don't always work, and the fact that it's an American company making it bothers me for starters. Also, I have a worrying feeling that they will want 'names' to sell the picture and we'll end up with three totally miscast A-listers in the roles. But on the upside, Guillermo del Torro is directing, and I'm a big fan of his work so it might be okay.

Just as long as it isn't another Charlie's Angels. *shudder* 

On a personal note, I'd just like to say that the new comment editing feature has tipped the balance and I am definitely splurging on a paid account. Once I get paid at the end of the month. :)

That...actually sounds like an interesting movie. Might have to look it up to see what it's about.

Oh yes, it is potentially a great movie.

Hahaha! my evil and cunning plan to get more people interested in the Champions and reading my fic is working. *eg*
