I can picture Alan and Colin playing off each other very nicely. :)Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Rickman is so good!Avatar Imagemoglet says: Alan Rickman and Colin Firth, definitely a film I shall want to see.Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Sounds like they are taking really big liberties with the plot of the original Michael Caine/Shirley MacLaine movie, a great caper flick that I loved when I was a kid. The role of the collector in the original was pretty small, so I hope that they beefed it up a bit to give Alan more screentime.Avatar ImageMatea says: can't wait! miss his voice :(
