Atkinson To Star In Dickens Revamp


Rowan Atkinson Peter Howitt

Funnyman Rowan Atkinson is to reteam with his Johnny English director Peter Howitt to revamp Charles DICkens' David Copperfield.
The movie pals have secured a $30 million (GBP15 million) budget for the project, which is set to start shooting in 2008.
Atkinson will play Copperfield's landlord Mr. Micawber in the latest version of DICkens' hardship tale.
The last time the story hit the big screen was in 1935 when W.C. Fields played Micawber.

Sliding Doors Review


Good
What would have happened if Gwynny caught the train? Her hair wouldn't have been brown, for starters! Sliding Doors is an unabashed, melancholic Gwynny vehicle, which isn't such a bad thing since she's so darn cute. The story, about a hapless Brit who we follow during two alternate realities -- one stuck in a loveless relationship, one striking out on her own, is fairly fun but wholly improbable. Which is why this is a romantic comedy-drama and not a flat-out drama (which would have just been depressing). The ending is not altogether satisfying, but it's certainly an original (though widely copied since).

The BEAN star left the crew in stitches of laughter as they watched
rubber-faced actor trying to successfully lock lips with the leggy brunette.


Tasha laughs, "The kissing scene was funny. Rowan is usually the total
professional but when we had to kiss it took us about 25 takes.

Rowan Atkinson. .i.m Difficult.


Rowan Atkinson Johnny English Peter Howitt

MR BEAN star Rowan Atkinson is a perfectionist - so much so, it makes him unhappy.

The comic actor, who is about to release spy spoof Johnny English, says that he drives directors mad and also makes himself miserable.

He says, "I find work very stressful and I'm always convinced that whatever I've just finished working on has never been as good as it could have been. I drove Peter Howitt, the film's director, mad because even if we'd done a good take, I was convinced we could do a better one. All I can say in my defence is that being like that isn't particularly fun for me either.
