THURMAN & PHOTOS FOR BROTHERS GRIMM
According to Dark Horizons, Uma Thurman has stepped into the role vacated by Nicole Kidman in Terry Gilliam's THE BROTHERS GRIMM, taking on the role of an evil, long-dead Queen who is trying to use ancient magic to return to life. Although the role is a small one as the queen doesn't really show up until the end (outside of a painting), Kidman's been packing in the parts these days, so her schedule simply didn't allow for it. Another small role to have been played by Robin Williams will now be played by Czech actor Tomas Hanak.
THE BROTHERS GRIMM is a dark fantasy about the two 'Brothers Grimm' (played by Heath Ledger and Matt Damon) who travel around the Napoleonic countryside vanquishing fake monsters and demons (think FRIGHTENERS) in exchange for cash. When the French government figures out what they're up to, they force the brothers to deal with the real thing?a number of murders being committed under mysterious circumstances in the northern woods between Germany and France. It is there that they have to try and discover what's really happening and deal with it before more people are killed or their lack of success leads to the guillotine.
Terry Gilliam is currently shooting the film in the Czech Republic (fingers crossed?it is a Gilliam film after all), and if you would like to check out some pictures taken of the sets, check them out below.
