Credit to Frank for digging out this new feature on IMDB . I’m happy to announce that I beat him, yay! This victory is all the sweeter after my embarassing defeat elsewhere; you know you’re a fannish failure if you play a trivia quiz about one of your favourite actors with a dog and the dog wins. Then again, I’m a dog as well…. eh, enough with the canine navel-gazing, try your luck and see if you can beat Frank and me (shouldn’t be too difficult!)

For now, we’re leaving you with some pictures from “Mother’s Milk”, which really exists, no, seriously, no kiddin’, will be released on 9 November in the UK and promises to be awesome. If you like the pictures below, you can get more on MOTHER’S MILK @ FAKEBOOK.

Why, yes, we think he’s smokin’.

Back in 2006, when dinosaurs still ruled the earth, Jack Davenport’s production company (yes, he seems to have one, it’s news to me as well) optioned Edward St Aubyn “Some Hope” trilogy; Jack’s mother Maria Aitken wrote the screenplays. She said:

“I’m delighted for them both, and I’d love to write the screenplay for Teddy’s new book, too.”

Davenport is keen to take a role in the screen versions of Some Hope, but has not yet decided which.

And ever since then, nobody has heard of this project again… until early September, when the news leaked on the internet that “Mother’s Milk” was in the process of being filmed in Provence, France, featuring Jack Davenport and Annabel Mullion.

“Mother’s Milk” is the sequel of the “Some Hope” trilogy, so I don’t know if the movie will contain material from all books, or if “Mother’s Milk” has also been part of the deal. The production company is “Foxy Films”, the director is Gerald Fox (who, together with ‘Teddy’ St Aubyn is listed as a producer). Well yes, Jack Davenport features, and as shallow as this may be, it’s our main point of interest here.

That’s just about all we know right now. If you’d like to know what “Mother’s Milk” is about, please click here.

And here’s a picture to go with this news item – it’s sort of related.
