Oooh, AICN has word of a big ol' haunted forest set (a classic Burton image) and a Montgomery Advertiser link to set pics of a parade scene in Wetumpka.

Nothing new on this one, but it's a movie we really want to see for many, many reasons (see "Why We Care," above). Billy Crudup plays William Bloom, the son, and Albert Finney, the father Edward Bloom; Ewan McGregor plays Edward in his youth (i.e., the crazy stuff). And here's the images we have so far, courtesy the Montgomery Adver-tiser:






















Got anything we should add?

Premise: A man tries to get to know his dying father--a father who claims to have "charm[ed] the socks off a giant [and run] so fast that he could arrive in a place before setting out to get there." From the novel by fellow Alabamian Daniel Wallace. NY Times book review: "In this first novel, Wallace begins with a nearly exhausted topic ... adds legends and folk tales from the Southern backwoods, throws in a smattering of Greek myth and attaches a few of his own inventions. Applying all of these to a life that might have been--for all we really know--quite ordinary has resulted in a story that is both comic and poignant."
