Hollywood film producer and founder of writemovies.com Alex Ross (The List, 2007- Warner Bros.) is delighted to announce his latest feature project THE CHIMES. The US$20m movie will focus on an almost cataclysmic love affair in the life of Oliver Twist author Charles Dickens:
When Dickens falls in love with beautiful mysterious Isabella he is drawn into her dark, dangerous world and risks everything to be with her, even his life.
Er -- back up there, boys. Isabella? Dark, dangerous world? Risks his life? It sounds like they started off with something that actually happened to Dickens and then took an abrupt left turn into sheer fantasy. And called the whole thing after one of his Christmas stories.
I don't really know what to think about this, folks. I'll check into it and see if I can find out more . . .
Update: A sparkly Dickens??
