Heads Up

Heard about a next Spring release in post-production I’d like to see: Amazing Grace: The William Wilberforce Story

If you don’t know about Wilberforce, the man probably most responsible for ending slavery, find out why he’s one of my favorite dead white guys.

Looks like a high quality pic. The staff at Walden Media, the folks behind the joint, did Spy Kids, Holes, and The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, among others.

Walden—with a mission to create inspiring films that adults and kids can explain to each other without having to lie and make stuff up-—gets its operating wad from Phil Anschutz, a Denver bazillionaire who seems to own half the sports teams and businesses in the western U.S. He’s an evangelical Howard Hughes come to Hollywood.

No cheesy end times flicks or two-by-four-to-the-head moralizing though. He seems to get it. Don’t like his politics or some of the half-evolved anti-evolutionary stuff he supports, but if he can make some good flicks I’ll be there with my Fandangos on.
