Now that’s some good casting. Deadline reports that Shirley MacLaine is in negotiations to play the titular character in Mother Goose, a movie based on all those classic nursery rhymes you remember growing up (or remember Andrew “Dice” Clay destroying in the 80′s).
The movie will follow Jack and Jill (not, not that Jack and Jill…hopefully) who end up stuck in Mother Goose’s kingdom and have to solve three riddles to get back home. Michael Snyder wrote the screenplay, but currently no director has been named for the project. Filming is expected to occur Arkansas, Los Angeles, and, erm, Poland. One of these things is not like the other one.
My affinity for the collected nursery rhymes of Mother Goose knows no bounds, so I’m approaching Mother Goose with a heavy dose of optimism. As long as it’s at least half as awesome as Mother Goose Rock ‘n’ Rhyme, I will be pleased. I just hope the desire to make pop culture references and fart jokes will be quelled.
What do you think about MacLaine taking this role?

His latest work is a pair of scores for films that were both released this month, Jake Paltrow‘s neo-western Young Ones and the journalistic thriller Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner. Johnson has also been producing a couple albums and […]
