"Resurrection Blues"

Interesting news from across the pond... Kevin Spacey has hired Robert Altman to direct Arthur Miller's late play Resurrection Blues for the Old Vic (where Spacey, you'll recall, now runs). Read about it here. The play didn't get a great reception at its premiere at the Guthrie a few years back. But Miller apparently revised it. And just the thought of Arthur Miller in his 80th year taking on US imperialism on an epic scale, being directed by Robert Altman... well, piques my interest at least.

Also in the season, Spacey continues to stalk the Robards legacy with Moon for the Misbegotten.

How will Altman direct a play? He is so old, the insurance company on his new movie demanded PT Andersen be on set at all times to take over if Altman falls ill. This is a disaster waiting to happen.

Kevin Spacey in Moon................ yeah yeah yeah.
