Sarandon Gets "Enchanted"

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that celebrated actress Susan Sarandon will join James Marsden and Amy Adams in Kevin Lima's "Enchanted," which will combine live-action and CG animation into a movie that sounds like "Shrek" meets "Ever After."

"Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon will star as a wicked queen intent on destroying true love in Walt Disney Pictures' "Enchanted." Sarandon has signed on to play Queen Narissa opposite a star-crossed princess and prince (Amy Adams and James Marsden) in the Kevin Lima-directed fairy tale that will blend animation and live action. The Bill Kelly script centers on a princess-in-waiting who is banished from a classical animation world by a vainglorious queen and dumped into a modern-day, live-action Manhattan."

Kevin Lima's previous films include "A Goofy Movie," "Tarzan," and "102 Dalmatians."

Ok I'm not sure how good this can be but Marsden is allright and Adams is awsome.

Its about time this movie is being made. The project has been laying there for a long time until now.

The article is confusing though. At the top, RT says its a mix of "live-action and CG animation". But at the bottom, it says classical animation (2-D) and live-action. WTF?

I think Disney will use CG because they got rid of their 2-D animation stuff and animators. Yet, it would look better with 2-D animation. It would be like "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?". Besides, CG is meant to make things look realistic.

I sure hope that they use 2-D animation. It sounds like it would be a perfect concept for disney to poke a little fun at themselves, by making it seem like another of their classic princess movies, only to flip everything upside down.

If it is CG, the joke won't work. There are no Disney princesses currently 3D animated. It would be parodying something which doesn't exist. Like making fun of people who fly cars diagonally. It's not funny untill you've seen it.
