Looking Ahead To There Be Dragons

We’re getting closer to the release of the movie, “There Be Dragons.” This is the movie poster. It sure looks like it will be a good one.

Roland Joffe, the director who brought us the highly acclaimed and deeply spiritual film The Mission has returned to his roots with the epic movie There Be Dragons, a powerful story of war, tragedy, love and redemption. Featured in the NY Times, the $35 million Dragons is rated PG-13 and planned for release in theaters worldwide in Spring, 2011. Set during the turmoil of the Spanish Civil War (early 1900s), Dragons tells the story of two childhood friends who become separated during the political conflict to find themselves on opposite sides as war erupts. One chooses the path of peace and becomes a priest while the other chooses the life of a soldier driven by jealousy and revenge. Each will struggle to find the power of forgiveness over the forces that tore their lives and friendship apart.

    In what sense are you claiming that the release of There Be Dragons is “getting closer?” The movie is reputedly such a mess that no studio or distribution company has signed on to get it into theaters. Added to that, the movie’s writing credits are still unsettled, with two other writers and the WGA all protesting the crediting of Roland Joffe as the writer of the movie. This project has a long way to go before it is in release. And then, Catholic theater-goers are going to be terribly disappointed at how – Joffe took a story of a Catholic saint and turned it into a mish-mashed leftist love story.

    In the sense of date of release as I wrote. That’s according to the publicist I have communicated with. As for the movie itself, I’ll reserve judgment until I see it instead of depending on rumors.
