Wizard People, Dear Reader
is a bizarre re-reading (or, if you're Tim Burton, a re-imagining) of Harry Potter and the philosophers stone (or sorcerers stone for our friends across the pond). Basically you download it, burn it to CD and play it while watching the DVD. A new art form, a childish gimmick or somewhere inbetween? Everybody
will have a copy soon
, so get busy with the download (courtesy of the ever vigilant Talking Tina at Sissyfight.com).
A new director has been announced for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
For this third installment of the franchise, Chris Columbus will be stepping down to producer, and Alfonso Cuarón
has been announced to fill the director's chair. Now if they'll just get somebody else to step in for Rowling actually get the next book written....
Aw, for the love of Kee-rist, can't anyone quit screwing with stuff
Columbus plans to shoot parallel versions of the first film -- one for the U.S.
market and one for Britain. His plan is to shoot two or three alternate sequences
for each film and to give the British film the first novel's original British title,
"Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone." The American film will be called,
"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."
