    I can't wait till this is out. Lily Cole should make a lovely Alice as will Tilda whatever role she's in. Perhaps,the new Tim Burton,Marilyn?? Though I'm not quick to make such a comparison,permaturely till I see it but MM's image and vision these days is so close to a Tim Burton character

    i've very excited! although...i have a sneaking suspicion that it's not going to be as good as it's made out to be. i wish there was a trailer i could watch.

    I personally think Manson is full of sh*t but it will be interesting to see if Manson or Cole can act......

    Oh! Thanks for the pics!

    Im very much intrigued ... Carroll is sacred to me so no one will ever fill my expectations ... Im most drawn to Poe's stories by Manson ... hum ... we'll see ... he's done directing for some videos and he's OK ... I wanna see ...

    Those images kind of resemble a juxtoposed collaboration by Nick Knight and Corrine Day. I take it that it won't have that richly textured,visual sensibility one would associate with fairy-tale.

    direction then just modeling.

    I'm hugely anticipating this. All the key elements are present:

    This could turn out good or bad, of course, but I'm having a difficult time imaginging anything awful becoming of such a promising storyline...

    I'd be more interested in the film version of this: Lewis Carroll in His Own Account: The Complete Bank Account of the Rev. C.L. Dodgson.
    I'm sure Manson could take a really fascinating, cinematic look at bank ledger entries--the debits, the credits--and what it says about this slippery thing called "identity", and how horrifying children are, and let's not forget castles. Castles are hella scary!

    Meanwhile, here's a synopsis of one of Lewis Carroll's later diaries from The Lewis Carroll Society:

    A number of significant events in Dodgson’s life are described in this journal. His investigation of symbolic logic continued and he took the opportunity to offer lectures at the Oxford Girls’ High School, sharing his ideas with young people. At Christ Church, he accepted the role of Curator of the Common Room, a position that required much time, trouble and effort. He transformed the organisational procedures and spent an enormous amount of time devising new accounting systems, re-organising the wine cellars and carrying out regular audits, improving the comfort and service for his fellow colleagues, and generally working well beyond the call of duty. This was his only college position apart from his former lectureship and a brief period as sub-librarian, and he seemed determined to carry it out to the best of his abilities. Finally, he achieved his ambition to see Alice dramatised for the stage, and in this he was strongly supported by Henry Savile Clarke, who wrote the libretto, and Walter Slaughter, who composed the music. Somewhere between a pantomime and an operetta, this musical dramatisation became extremely popular with audiences around the country and repeat performances were well attended by families. The play soon became a standard Christmas feature, especially in London. Dodgson continued to view his vows as a deacon of the Church of England seriously, and preached on a number of occasions at St. Mary’s, Guildford, and in Oxford. During this period he devised a number of puzzles and games, and invented the “nyctograph” for writing in the dark.

    That is some spoooooooooky sh********, Marilyn!

    Here is the IMDB link. Manson as Lewis Carroll. :shock: From what I see in the blogosphere, the project won't begin until after the current tour.

    they are seriously behind any sort of schedule since it was supposed to be finished by LAST fall...


    :lol:...
    i wonder if this will ever happen...

    :unsure:...

    it's certainly an intersting idea...
    but who knows if manson can direct or anything...
    plus- something like this is a HUGE production costing lots of $$$...
    so that could be a major roadblock...

    then again....
    they could do it like the old vincent price movies...sort of tongue in cheek...
    very stylised and not taking itself too seriously...
    THAT could actually work imo...

    but manson ALWAYS seems to take himself too seriously...
    :innocent:...


    :lol:...

    I agree with you....and Marilyn DOES take himself too serious at times but this could be a good movie idea and something to look forward to seeing,if it ever happens.
