A passion project for producer Salma Hayek, who also heads up the voice cast along with Liam Neeson, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet taps eight animators (including Bill Plympton and Nina Paley) to bring Gibran’s poetry to life. The frame story is helmed by The Lion King co-director Roger Allers.
Oh, that? Yeah, it’s Salma Hayek devouring a bloody dragon heart, among other striking (and oft-NSFW, so be warned) images in the trailer for The Tale Of Tales. The fairy-tale epic is the latest from Italian filmmaker Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah), and it’s debuting next month at the Cannes Film Festival.
Interesting news about the musical sensation from somewhere over the rainbow. Wicked, the novel and hit musical, is not getting turned into a movie. Instead it's going to get its own miniseries from Salma Hayek.
