MAGPIE/ Prompt #67
Nicolas Tournier/ Magpie Tales
LUNCH BREAK/ Spoiler Alert!
National Enquirer has the first pics of the stars during a lunch break, on the set of the blockbuster Dreamworks 3D version of "Romeo and Juliet..and Dracula".
"No matter how hard they try...they will never die". Already the catch phrase of the year!
Lady Gaga, a pale and virginal Juliet, passes the publicity shots to Russell Crowe,(a hefty Friar Laurence), who checks them, gets gravy on half of them.
As the undead Count Paris,(Daniel Day Lewis, left, flirting with vampire extra), in a daring portrayal, leaps, dances, seduces and sucks.
The Count gets a grip on Nurse,(Helen Mirren), who then enters Juliet's chamber to dress her for the ball. Juliet likes the touch of ruby red on Nurse's lips. Soon enough...
In a dreamlike sequence, Montagues and Capulets chase each other and blood happens. Juliet is caught in a deadly embrace by a masked man. Fatal kisses are blown and caught. Capulet cries out, "My kingdom for a stake".
The entire original score, (by Lady Gaga), is played on a single Lute, by the gifted hands of the not yet dead Romeo, Ashton Kutcher,(seen rehearsing).
The stars can't wait to complete work on this lavish film, where the stakes are very high indeed!
Thanks, Tess, for the opportunity to play with this wonderful painting!
