JOHN CLEESE SIGNS TO STAR IN "THE SHOOT"
British funny man John Cleese has signed on to star in a local film
called The Shoot. Produced by Jigsaw Entertainment, the comedy is written
by Josh Goldin and Bruce Hancock. Inside Film magazine reports that
Cleese was impressed with the script and concept: "It gives me
a different kind of character from the ones I've traditionally played,
plus the chance to work with a couple of old friends," Cleese told
them. "And shooting in Australia is a huge plus. I'm told it's
God's own country, and five visits there have given me no reason to
disagree. So, watch out, Queensland muddies!" The film is to be
produced mid-next year.
