Ben Whishaw and Judi Dench in “Peter and Alice”

So that rumored John Logan’s play starring Whishaw and Dench has been confirmed. The premise is not as bonkers as I initially thought, it’s not Peter Pan meeting with Alice from Alice in Wonderland, but the real people who are the inspiration for the two characters meeting each other. The synopsis:

When Alice Liddell Hargreaves met Peter Llewelyn Davies at the opening of a Lewis Carroll exhibition in 1932, the original Alice in Wonderland came face to face with the original Peter Pan. In John Logan’s remarkable new play, enchantment and reality collide as this brief encounter lays bare the lives of these two extraordinary characters.

In other Ben Whishaw related news, the release date for Cloud Atlas has been moved forward from December to October 26th, in part because Warner Bros is encouraged by positive audience response during early screenings. December is notorious for a lot of films being released to qualify for the Oscars, so maybe the studio doesn’t want to risk Cloud Atlas getting lost in the crowd.

      • I don’t know, but I think we will be getting a lot of Ben tidbits over the next few month – Thanks to people like you. Boy, they are sure being secretive about “Q” aren’t they. I know if there’s anything out there though you’ll find it and pass it along.

        • Yeah, definitely secretive about Q. I don’t think he’s been in any of the Skyfall video/trailer/photo. It’s probably not a really big role, something like Lucius Fox in the Batman movies.

            • Sorry the word brilliant was spelled wrong above. Sometimes when I’m typing on my I Pad with one finger things like that happen – but you know what I mean. I don’t think I can think of another young actor that is this gifted.
