Update on Terry Gilliam's THE WHOLLY FAMILY
LoSpettacolo and SegnalStreet90 media outlets, I made a blog post several days ago about a possible new Terry Gilliam short film, THE WHOLLY FAMILY. This morning, UK-based Bleeding Cool has got wind of it and filled in more pieces of the puzzle, but printed a retraction later today on one of those pieces. Bleeding Cool's Brendon Connelly is now stating that the film is NOT based on Merriam's poem; in fact he goes on to say that Gilliam "doesn’t know the Merriam poem at all." So, I guess it is one of those strange coincidences that the unique titles are identical. We shall wait and see what transpires over the coming month. Nevertheless, thank you to Bleeding Cool for the other pieces of the puzzle today. And to my blog readers, I'll be keeping my eye on Italian media sources in the coming weeks for the scoop.
