In Other News..

First, I PROMISE the Jamie Sives interview will go up later today, just been having an insane 36 hours seriously, naturally when all I want to do this and heh thwarted at every move, curse real life news ;p

Speaking of news, in other news:
Colin Kennedy updated his blog to say I Love Luci is getting closer to being complete! Yay! Titles and credits are the order of the day; can't wait till this is ready to go and we can hopefully get a wee preview! :))

Isa & the Filthy Tongues announced via their official Twitter they are playing the Wickerman festival in Scotland on 24th JULY, which hopefully for those attending, you will hear a live cut of the title track for Richard Jobson's New Town Killers. NTK stars Dougray Scott and Sigmas own Alastair Mackenzie and is due for release in the UK starting June 11. Side note: I love Twitter, despite the antics of mr Kutcher, I adore Stephen Frys. My personal twitter is overrun with other blather, but I am hoping to actually update on SweetSigma more often.

Finally, as a followup to the article the other day about Locations for Jamie Bell's new film either London or Scotland, the Scotsman has a bit more on this, featuring an interview with Scots director Kevin MacDonald on The Eagle of the Ninth (NO NO its not a Sigma film production, but heh if hes coming to Scotland ot film, I strongly recommend FILM CITY GLASGOW ;) Right, well the paper cites Mr. McDonald as follows, so maybe indeed Jamie will be in Glasgow/Edinburgh this summer after all!

This summer Macdonald, who now lives in London with his wife and three children, is expecting to return to Scotland to shoot his latest movie, an adaptation of Rosemary Sutcliff's classic children's novel, The Eagle of the Ninth. The plot follows a wounded Roman soldier and his loyal Celtic slave, played by Jamie Bell, as they attempt to solve the mystery of the Ninth Legion, who set off into the wilds of the Scottish Highlands and were never seen again.

While Hungary will double as England, Macdonald feels there is no substitute for Scotland's landscape. "I'm looking forward to coming up in the next few weeks to scout locations and do prep work – we really want to film in Scotland. Ten per cent of the dialogue will be Gaelic."

OK next post: THE INTERVIEW!!! YAY :)
