There was an announcement yesterday that Kenneth Branagh's film starring Kate Winslet based on the popular The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society book will be delayed for one year.
Now, I don't want to engage in fruitless speculation, but a few things about this bit of news grabbed by attention. The reasons given for the delay were:
"...continued casting and timing issues", according to a representative for Guernsey's Commerce and Employment Department.
Producer Paula Mazur: "It really is important to get the right cast on board,"
In the meantime Richard Armitage is in New Zealand still filming The Hobbit. The first Hobbit film premieres in December of this year, and the second film premieres in December of 2013. In between of course we know that Armitage will have to be out there doing PR for both films. Something all his fans are very much looking forward to.
Casting and Timing Issues???
Now many fans have long discussed that one of the main characters in the book, Dawsey Adams, would be a perfect role for Richard Armitage. Since we have a year to wait for the Potato Peel Pie Society film to start filming, why not go over and join the fan campaign Richard Armitage for Dawsey Adams at the link below:
