Julianne Moore and Michelle Pfeiffer?
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe has been making virtually everyone’s list as one of the “Most Anticipated Movies of 2005” or “Movies to Watch For in 2005.” Newsweek, and The Ledger were just two examples of news orginizations that put LWW high on the list. On the Fox News Channel a panel of movie experts talked a good deal about LWW when talking about 2005 movies. They said that Hollywood has had its eye on the film ever since the Nicole Kidman rumors. [Note: Nicole Kidman is not in the film!] The character of the White Witch became a desirable role for many actresses, and the fact that they would cast a character actress like Tilda Swinton over interest form Julianne Moore and Michelle Pfeiffer adds to the mystery of the project. That along with the fact that there have been no set photos released, and few interviews also adds to the mystery and anticipation. Thanks to Brett for this run-down!
