Blackadder the movie?
Oh it would be so sweet to see the return of Blackadder and this time to the big screen, it's a leap right enough, but disconnected news reports put together spell a strange tale indeed.
According to Martha over at Cinematical there are some strange Blackadder movements afoot.
Stephen Fry...recently told contactmusic.com that he just spoke with Atkinson (currently busy reviving Mr. Bean, another of his TV characters), and that he professed to missing "the joys of Blackadder rehearsals and all that."...according to a story on virgin.net, series vet Ben Elton is actually working right now on a screenplay that lands Blackadder, Baldrick, et al squarely in the middle of The Russian Revolution.
The series met the same characters placed in different historically important moments of time, the first series was around 1380 and it was just sheer genius. In fact all three series were rip roaringly funny, so much so it's hard to believe that Atkinson went onto such tepid rubbish as Mr Bean. This perhaps explains the possible return of the funniest character he's ever played. If you have no idea what this series is, you must go and rent it now, and start praying a movie is in the offing.
