A Midsummer Night's MILF Hunt

Slate has their article about Roland Emmerich’s coming authorship movie entitled “The Shakespeare Apocalypse“, but halfway through the article the author hands me this better subject line on a silver platter, so how can I not steal it? 🙂

Early in the daylong set tour, it becomes clear that Anonymous, Roland Emmerich’s upcoming drama about the secret author of Shakespeare’s plays, won’t be a decorous literary costume drama but rather a certifiably loony fantasia built on an epic scale.

I love it when people use the “loony” pun when speaking of authorship, I highly support that. (The Oxford theory, for those who do not know, was first put forth by a Mr. Looney. They’ll never escape the tittering that goes with that. 🙂

The author gets to be part of the press tour for the movie, so there’s all kinds of good backstage info all written from the perspective of an author who’s clearly not on their side.  Quite an amusing read.
