3 comentaris:

  1. "a LaceColonial war on a lost continent... Dinotopia maybe?"
    Much more potential than any historical project!

    "3 Musketeers": which one? From Max Linder's "The Three Must-Get-There" to the recent 'Lacepunk before the time' (and quite inspirational as such) one with Milla Jovovich as Milady de Winter, their is a rich choice.

    ResponElimina
  2. 3 Musketeers, all of them. For acting maybe the 1993 version with Kiefer Sutherland, for inspiration, the 2011 one :)

    The lacepunk dinotopia colonial scenario is VERY tempting, to say the least... Just depends on time and money and not even that much of each....hmmmm

  3. Trouble is finding "civilized" dinosaurs for the part....might be time to try out some green stuff??
