"Memiors of a Geisha" to FINALLY be made
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=794&e=2...

It's taken seven years but this Geisha is finally ready to roll.

Memoirs of a Geisha, Arthur Golden's 1997 bestseller about a nave Japanese girl turned big-city working girl, should have been a cineplex slam-dunk by now, but rotating directors and some Hollywood-sized grudges have kept the novel from making it to the big screen.

That was then.

Columbia Pictures has just announced that production will begin next month in Los Angeles and Japan with Chicago's Rob Marshall at the helm and Steven Spielberg producing. Principal cast members include Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai) and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon's Zhang Ziyi.




I know I'm so excited to finally see this book made into a movie. The cast looks great with Michelle Yeoh, Gong Li and Ken Watanabe.

I'm crossing my fingers that Rob Marshell can stick as close as possible to the script!!

1. I'm excited about that. . .
I read mostly non-fiction and that is one of my favourite books of all time. It's a fascinating story.
