Elton John: Predator slaughters Jane Austen movie
God, I love Elton John. The latest movie project of his Rocket Pictures sees the alien Predator unleashed on the world of Pride & Prejudice. Sublime. I have some extracts from the script:
Mr. Darcy: May I have the next dance, Miss Elizabeth?
Elizabeth Bennet: [taken aback] You may. Oh my God what the cunting is that - aaargh!
Netherfield Butler: A Mrs Bennet, a Miss Bennet, a Miss Bennet and a Miss Bennet, sir.
Caroline Bingley: Oh for heaven's sake, are we to receive every Bennet in the - aaargh!
Lady Catherine de Bourg: That is very strange. Oh fuck - aaargh!
