It has pun to my attention that an animated film - seemingly based entirely on a pun - is to be unleashed in our cinemas next February:
GNOMEO AND JULIET
This is NOT a joke. Don't believe me? Then watch the trailer. The characters are voiced by James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Michael Caine, Jason Statham, Maggie Smith, Patrick Stewart, Ashley Jensen, Stephen Merchant, Matt Lucas, Jim Cummings, Julie Walters, Richard Wilson, Ozzy Osbourne...you catch my drift. It's gonna be big. And all because someone came up with a rather weak Shakespeare pun.
So I thought it might be rather amusing if we pitched our own Bard/pun films. Here are mine:
RAMLET - in which an animated, uncastrated male sheep exacts revenge on his farmyard buddies and goes a bit crazy.
MUCH ADO ABOUT PUFFIN - in which four animated puffins get ever so confused about who is supposed to be in love with whom.
