Although it is marvelous to have so many new Shakespeare plays on film,
if the company really wants to make the films "fresh" perhaps they could
suggest that Branagh stay behind the camera...I wonder if anyone else
has tired of his predictable mugging and overblown line readings?
Arguably, KB is a great director/adapter/promoter, but let's hope for
some fresh blood in the leading roles.

It's funny that "Love's Labour Lost" is actually being done-I had a
chance to see Kenneth Branagh speak last year at Yale before a showing
of "Much Ado."  He answered some questions, including one from me asking
what Shakespeare he wanted to do next and, sure enough, he said a
musical version of "Love's Labours Lost."  I'm excited to see the
results...
