Eddie Izzard in Treasure Island

Post by rhi on Fri Jan 06, 2012 9:54 am



Itís no surprise that his reading of Treasure Islandís Long John Silver focuses on Silverís pathological pursuit of his goal. Izzard says he wanted to make what he calls ďa Goodfellas-y versionĒ of Stevensonís classic tale. The resulting two-parter is indeed pretty brutal for a supposed family film. ďSilver will not stop. This guy is going to go back and get this money from the island Ė we worked out it was something like 300 million of todayís money. Itís got to be a fixation because you wouldnít go all the way back there. Heís got to put a crew together, somehow insinuate that crew on to another ship, play both sides off against one another and find this map that heís been trying to find for so bloody long.Ē (Link)



And yes Sarah, Gene's in it Wink

Yep its Elijah. It's got a very good cast but I can't remember everyones names. It started New years day, only a two parter, about 4 hours long in total I think. You probably can find it on the internet somewhere, ill see what I can do otherwise Smile
