Edgar Wright And Johnny Depp Board Adaptation Of Gaiman's FORTUNATELY, THE MILK
THR is reporting that Edgar Wright will direct Johnny Depp in Bret McKenzie's adaptation of Neil Gaiman's children's book Fortunately, the Milk.
Edgar Wright's Coronetto trilogy is one of the greatest things ever. Say what you will about Johnny Depp but the man is a chameleon, or, as our Matt Brown put it Hollywood's resident clown. Then you have Bret McKenzie, one half of comedy musical troupe The Conchords. And then there is a children's book by Neil frickin' Gaiman!
But what is Fortunately, the Milk about?
Gaiman's children's book is described as "a story of time travel and breakfast cereal." It starts out with a father who goes to the store to buy some milk and returns with wild tales of aliens, space-time travel, pirates and more.
Count me in!
Uncle Andrew knows what book he is going to get his nephews for Christmas this year. Going to ease those little boogers into Gaiman with this. Start them young. The jump from this to American Gods will not be that traumatic. Right?
