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!

Reminds me of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." I love your plays on words (leaps, dances, seduces, and sucks)! Brilliant!

Hi Stafford Ray-
Guess I sold out all the way! But I'm sensitive at heart..thanks for dropping by..

Lyn said...

Hi Helen-
Thank you..I love to cast books, recast movies..since forever!

versebender said...

Considerably better plotting (and casting) than most of the drivel out there today. This was very clever....and the pun at the end. Vb

Margaret Pangert said...

Lyn, this is going to be a megahit! I can tell by the stunning press release. Too clever! Love the casting! Lada Gaga, Russell Crowe, Daniel Day Lewis... Ashton Kutcher, lutenist for Lady Gaga's score... Best vampire movie yet! Great farce!

Lyn said...

Hi versebender-
Thank you..I do get twisted from time to time! Always like a bit of farce...

Lyn said...

Hi Margaret-
We can't run out of vampires, can we? It's Bram Stoker's fault..
thanks for visiting.

Brigid said...

Such a fun and clever take, Lyn.

Lyn said...

Hi izzy-
We Aries would make it anywhere! Thanks for the visit!!

Lena said...

I'm quite impressed by the cast members! Terrific spin on the 'pie!

R. Burnett Baker said...

This is fun! Wouldn't it be a hoot if the artist who painted these "masterpieces" actually had similar thoughts as us, and did the paintings as satire and jokes??!!??

Rick

Lyn said...

Hi Rick-
You just made my day! The thought that there's a farce behind a masterpiece goes a long way with me...thank you, thank you!!

Lyn said...

Hi Lena-
Thank you..can't wait to cast my next movie!!

Raph G. Neckmann said...

This sounds interesting - we don't know any of these people here in Camelopardalis constellation, but would love to see the play!

Lyn said...

Hi Raph-
These are pretty well known actors...well, not in all corners of the universe, I see..Allow me to be the first to introduce vampires to Camelopardalis!
