I Can’t Wait: Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang

Chick 1 says:nannympheebigbang2

Loved, loved, loved Nanny McPhee!  The perfect blend of whimsy, humor, naughty children, and romance.    Emma Thompson adapted the screenplay from a children’s book and also starred. 

She returns as producer, writer, and star for Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang.  The sequel also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, Maggie Smith (2 good Maggies), Ralph Fiennes, and Rhys Ifans.  Great cast but I can’t decide from the trailer how this one is shaping up.  Of course, I wasn’t sure about the the first one and it’s one of my favorites.

A few little points of interest from development land.

maggie_gyllenhaalOld News: I’ve mentioned my excitement over the upcoming sequel to Emma Thompson’s Nanny McPhee here.  Last month we learned that Maggie Gyllenhaal has been cast in the project.  I think Maggie is delightful and I’m so glad to see her joining Emma.  There aren’t any details on her part but my completely uneducated guess is that she’ll be playing the mother of the family that needs Nanny McPhee’s touch.

A few more projects in development that have piqued my interest. Apparently, this week the theme is Harry Potter.

Old News: I’ve been mildly interested in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, currently filming in London.  Naturally, it features Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter but when Alan Rickman (Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series) was announced as the Caterpillar, I was completely sold.  I adore Rickman and would pay to watch him sort socks.  This movie has officially been moved to my I Can’t Wait list.  Check out the rest of this cast: Mia Wasikowska as Alice (Thank heavens Burton was original enough to cast someone besides Dakota Fanning or Abigail Breslin!  Yes, they’re talented but they’re not the only fish in the sea.), Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Michael Sheen as the Cheshire Cat, & Crispin Glover as the Knave of Hearts.  Yes, this will be weird but it could also be freakin’ awesome!
