in the history of bad ideas...

Found this while procrastinating at work:

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the publication of the original novel, Toronto film-maker Kevin Sullivan has written a movie prequel to "Anne of Green Gables" reports Sneak Peek TV.

Titled "A New Beginning", Sullivan is also looking for a new actress to play the lead of 'Anne Shirley' and is conducting an extensive casting call on YouTube as well as performing a cross-Canada talent search in seven cities, looking for young actresses between the ages of ten and twelve.

Sullivan says "In the book, she just shows up at the train station. But I needed to who she was before she was brought to Prince Edward Island. I could only imagine that a child who had that kind of flamboyant imagination had to have already created her own world out of a need to escape an unusual past."

Auditions, no more than two minutes in length, are to be submitted to this Youtube group or a mailing address at this link which also has details on what the audition should include.

WORST.IDEA.EVER.  What is this man thinking??!?!?!  There is no Anne without Diana and Gilbert and, of course, Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert!!  He's already crapped on my beloved Anne with Anne and The Continuing Story (the only redeeming quality was seeing Megan Follows & Jonathan Crombie together again) and now this.  It's just so very wrong.

What a terrible idea! It would be the most depressing movie ever - do we really want to see Anne shuttled from one neglectful, abusive home to another? How is that entertainment?

Exactly! And this part: I could only imagine that a child who had that kind of flamboyant imagination had to have already created her own world.... Did we not see this already in the original movie? Sullivan should try other ideas and leave the world of Avonlea alone.
