Five Favourite Films with Richard Curtis
Richard Curtis has a plan. "What I've decided is to choose recent films," he explains to RT. "I do think that often people get stuck in always saying the five greatest films of all time, films they saw between the ages of seventeen and twenty-two, because that's when you're forming your opinions. I think I'll talk about modern films, which aren't necessarily the greatest films ever made, but are five great films." The Boat that Rocked is out on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK this week and is soon to hit US cinemas retitled Pirate Radio. Read on to learn about the five films he can't do without.

Included in the original concepts are two comedies about today's economic hard times, a biopic about a classic children's book author, a historical epic about King Henry V and a time travel sci-fi action movie called Arena.

Cannes 2009: Bridget Jones Becomes a Musical
Bridget Jones's Diary is set to be a musical according to Variety.
Working Title are producing the show, and will be hoping to replicate the success of the live-action Billy Elliot stage show - which has just been nominated for a ton of Tony Awards. Helen Fielding, who wrote the ridiculously successful books, will apparently contribute to the lyrics. Expect to see this heart-warming tale of the slightly overweight singleton sometime in 2011. Renee Zellweger played the character in two big screen adaptations -- Bridget Jones's Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.
