Hello World!

Well, as if four Alexander the Great projects weren't enough, it looks like we're going to have two Hannibal films. (The Carthaginian general - not the 'Silence of the Lambs' one.)

Vin Diesel is set to star in one of them (insert appropriate cringe here), while the other apparently has interest from Denzel Washington. I'd prefer Washington from the acting standpoint, but then it would be nice to see a relative unknown in the role.

I've also heard of at least two Boudicca projects, and there's a mini-series about Helen of Troy coming up too, not to mention the Julius Caesar mini-series. Despite this post-Gladiator interest in all things classical, we're still lacking a film in English about Nero (ie: the one who supposedly fiddled while Rome burned). They've made an Italian one, enticingly called 'Nero and Poppea: An Orgy of Power.'
