How lovely to have you back on board, GM! I haven't seen you around for a couple of years.

Sadly, the splendid Alan Rickman is no longer with us. He had a minor stroke in August last year and died this January from pancreatic cancer.

I don't know where that leaves the movie.

Yep. Could be part of the problem.

He voiced the Caterpillar for Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Strange industry.

Offered a writer $1 Million Oz to write the Jack the Ripper book yesterday morning.

A quick Wiki search states:

It was announced on 17 April 2015 that Alan Rickman, Olivia Cooke, and Douglas Booth had been cast in leading roles for the film, to be directed by Juan Carlos Medina with a screenplay by Jane Goldman. Rickman later left the project for unknown reasons.

Probably ill health.

Being dead does tend to end participation in something. I assuming that he left sometime after his involvement was announced & when he died. so he didn't actually get involved at all.

The movie went ahead & is due out in the UK next month.

I always found Python very hit & miss.

Is this out yet? I can't find it on Lovefilm (yes I still use Lovefilm lol). The trailer looks good...

With only one very very small detail (forgive me I'm terrible for this sort of thing), but all the Bobbies collar number are P (Camberwell) and not K Division (Limehouse), that they should be. I suspect that it's the same costumes as used in the recent Sherlock Holmes films (as they all have P Division as well). Talking of Sherlock Holmes, I heard somewhere that there was going to be a Jack the Ripper one of them as well? Has anyone heard anything?

Yes, just seen a tv advert for this, in UK cinemas Sept 1st.
Looks like the late Alan Rickman has been replaced by Bill Nighy
