Elton John Planning to Kill Keira Knightley
Well, sort of.
Elton John is set to achieve the impossible dream of satisfying hundreds of women and men at the same time. And all without opening his mouth (to sing, you perverts).
John’s Rocket Picture’s film studio has announced that it is set to produce Pride and Predator – a somewhat quirky (read: freaking genius) spin on the traditional period drama that girls seem to love. The plan is for the film to begin all Knightley/Firth-like before an alien crash-lands and begins to slaughter every wimple and corset within sight.
John’s producing partner David Furnish told Variety: “It felt like a fresh and funny way to blow apart the done-to-death (OTB: aha!) Jane Austen genre by literally dropping this alien into the middle of a costume drama, where he stalks and slashes to horrific effect.”
The Sci-Fi-Perio-Horror could end up giving Pegg’s RomZomCom Shaun of the Dead a run for its money by managing to satisfy both the male and female sides of the audience.
Perfect date movie? We’ll know by mid-late 2010.
