It almost seemed forgotten – especially with the pandemic putting an end to all film productions for the time being. But now the Hollywood Reporter *exclusively* (!!) claims that the project is back on track – and put Richard right on top billing.
I am kind of non-plussed by the news. Well, let’s say I am veering more towards plus than minus, actually. But only because I am delighted if Richard appears in *any* role. As I have said before, a priest? *meh* I am just not into them. Nothing about them screams “hot” to me, and somehow I am not overly enthusiastic to see my favourite actor play one. I dislike the way they dress, I dislike their institution, and I dislike the morals they are representative of. The book itself was also not a winner for me. I just didn’t quite warm up to Father Quart. He remained distant and in many ways I just couldn’t quite fathom him. And right now I just can’t imagine Richard playing a ‘holy man’. Not sure why… maybe I have seen him running around in too many action roles? Well, maybe that is the big challenge then. Both for Richard – and for me. I guess I will have to get used to this.👇🏻
