Well, looks like everyone gets everything they ever wanted out of this! A movie, and a live-on-stage film telecast to theaters around the world.

As for the actual story, he's been a big tease about this for years. I'll believe it when I have a ticket in my hand.

Cameron has made millions from being a 'big tease' and while that makes for a successful producer, those of us who know him better by now barely flinch at this type of news.

I remember once when I attended a performance and squeed like a schoolgirl at the "SHE WILL BE GOING TO THE CINEMA" ad inside my just-bought souvenir brochure.

That was in February, 1991.

And, in fact, the concert at the O2 next week, I'm presenting with Universal Pictures and it's huge -- with over 500 in the cast and it is being simultaneously screened to over a 1000 cinemas around the world


So they won't actually be a filming a stage production, he's just talking again about the concert being screened? Grrr.

Seeing is believing.

Agreed. This thing has been stuck in development hell for so long that I would remain wary of anything until a trailer is released. There have been no names attached to this alleged production, no actors, no director, no screenwriter. Until such information starts filtering out, this announcement has about as much weight as the ads Quique mentioned. (I know I have that same ad somewhere in one of my brochures that seems to have fallen off the planet!) Wasn't Alan Parker the name attached to that version way back then? I'm kind of grateful that didn't happen...

In purely speculative news, while I'm sure it would raise the ire of many, I'd love to see what someone like Terry Gilliam would do with the material.
