Harrock n roll

I just discovered that "The Yellow M" is to be released as a live action movie in October 2004!
It's an Anglo-french production, and the title appears to be in English on French movie sites.

I would love to see it too! I think The Yellow 'M' movie stalled in pre-production last year, if not earlier, so it's nice to think it's going again.

They had announced a lot of shooting to take place round Museum Street and other central London locations, then they lost the funding, or something.
I like to think they had picked up the finance again, but it isn't showing as a coming film in Rufus Sewell's biog on imdb.com, so I guess he's off it?

I've been wondering recently what's happened to this film. It was first announced in 2002, was coming soon in 2004, and then... nothing!

I noticed recently that the IMDb site has it listed now with a 2006 next to it.
The actors Rufus Sewell, Hugh Bonneville, James Caviezel and Li Gong (or Gong Li if you prefer) are still listed as cast. Has this really sunk without a trace and the information just repeated from some old source?
Or is it likely to appear this year? Anyone know?

And so the story rumbles onward...

It’s apparently back on the cards, with Kenneth Brannagh pencilled in to be Francis Blake, and John Malkovitch as Olrik and a date of 2009.

I know that Brannagh’s attachment to the Marvel Thor film has apparently led to the making of the next three Wallander TV films being postponed from 2009 to 2010, so whether he can fit in Yellow M as well remains to be seen.
