Dean Spanielly

If I had picked a Dunsany novel likely to be adapted as a movie, My Talks with Dean Spanley wouldn’t have been it. But this does look like it might be a lot of fun. They’re certainly working with a great cast.

  1. It’s as if they asked, “Jenna, who are your favorite underutilized actors?” and then cast the film accordingly.

    Haven’t read that book (confession: only have read King of Elfland’s Daughter by Dunsany), but it looks marvelous.

      I’ve never read the novel either–I don’t think I’ve ever seen a copy, in fact. I read somewhere that HarperCollins released an edition with the novel and the screenplay in the UK, and was going to do the same in the US, but there’s no sign of it on Amazon yet, anyway.

      “Underutilized”–definitely! I think the last thing I saw Jeremy Northam in was “Gosford Park” (although IMDb says he’s been working pretty steadily, including a stint on “The Tudors” as Thomas More).

    Looks interesting ;o)

      Maybe Dunsany is the new Jane Austen, and soon we’ll be hip-deep in adaptations of “The Gods of Pegana” and “How Nuth Would Have Practised His Art Upon the Gnoles”. Here’s hoping!
