following is from Sharon Delaney (Creation Ent.)
the Renee O'Connor fans who won't have a chance to see her
Lady Macbeth, we will have a "taste of Lady M" in
fan club kit #6.
Yesterday we went with Renee to Pt. Fermin Park where the play
performed and did some filming.
First was a short sit-down interview in street clothes.
After that was
over, Renee asked if we'd like to film some of her physical
routine. She proceeded to sit down on the ground and put
her foot behind
her head! Turns out she does a yoga routine to warm up.
She went through
a series of moves for the camera.
Renee then changed into the blue costume from the play and
began to recite
some of Lady M's speeches. We filmed her walking along
the stone fence
that runs above the cliffs, delivering her lines full-out to
the sea. I
mentioned that one of the other actors did his rehearsing on
the other side
of the fence. Renee hiked up the dress and hopped over
with my camera crew
right behind her! With the wind making the most
sculptures of Renee and the blue gown, she put her arms out
to recite. She looked like Kate Winslet on the bow of
the Titanic -- eyes
closed, face up to the sky.
The shoot was only scheduled for 45 minutes, but Renee stayed
for an hour
and a half and kept asking for more things to do! And,
yes, we did get the
Macbeth "Undo the Curse" Rap delivered right into
the camera lens in
Renee's sauciest manner <G>
We had a still photographer there and took lots of pics that
we will have
available very soon.

Raimi Sinking Teeth Into Vampire Saga
By Claude Brodesser
HOLLYWOOD (Variety) - "30 Days of Night," a comic
book series about vampires who invade a town near the Arctic
Circle, is being turned into a film by "Spider-Man"
director Sam Raimi.
The filmmaker and production partner Rob Tapert will produce
the picture for German producer Senator Intl., which clinched
the rights to the series Monday.
Raimi told Daily Variety the project is "so unlike the
horror films of recent years," describing it as the story
of a couple that loves each other and "happen to be the
sheriffs of this little town."

Lawless: A long-rumored contender for the
role, the Xena:
Warrior Princess star already has played an Amazon royal who
consorts with Greek gods. And since her Xena character always
displayed lesbian leanings, Lawless shouldn't have any trouble
fitting in on the females-only Paradise Island!
