The Brothers Grimm



Grimm stars Matt Damon and Heath Ledger as the titular siblings, who go around Europe creating fake supernatural creatures to fight in order to make a buck. Monica Bellucci plays a queen who hires them to stop a real fairy-tale curse, and the two are forced to either defeat it or be exposed as fakes.

The Brothers Grimm is due out on August 26th.

So, are we looking forward to this movie or not?

Ah, that looks very interesting. I was hoping you weren't posting a link to another thread because I did run a search first.

I'm looking forward to this film...assuming it actually comes out. Here's to August 26th sticking!

It's a Terry Gilliam movie though...so I'm there.

This was originally supposed to come out last November. I'm hoping it comes out sometime this summer because I have been looking forward to it.

There's a good article from the Guardian regarding this film, as well as some other projects Gilliam's been working on:
http://film.guardian.co.uk/cannes200...485600,00.html

Of particular interest to this thread:
Gilliam came back for another look at The Brothers Grimm in January this year. "The six-month hiatus was good for everybody. I saw a couple of things I could change. You know what I did? I cut out the most expensive scene in the movie. It was something I'd thought about, but didn't have the balls to do until I'd walked away from it for a bit. It'll be on the DVD - the most expensive extra ever made. It's a great sequence, a fight in a tree. But Terry Jones spotted the problem. It made the movie broken-backed. It happens in the middle of the story and, as it's the most spectacular bit, where can you go after that? To cut out the most expensive scene, that was difficult. But at least we all came out liking the movie."
