In the upcoming movie Gnomeo & Juliet, Shakespeare’s revered story gets a comic make-over:the film is indeed based on the greatest love story ever told… but with garden gnomes. Director Kelly Asbury (who co-directed Shrek 2) is helming the project and James McAvoy and Emily Blunt are lending their voices to the two lead characters Gnomeo and Juliet.
Here’s a first look at the movie Gnomeo and Juliet and also a few earlier concept arts:
“Directed by Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2) and featuring both classic and original songs by Elton John, Gnomeo (James McAvoy) and Juliet (Emily Blunt) have as many obstacles to overcome as their namesakes… but with plastic pink flamingoes and thrilling lawnmower races in the mix, can these star-crossed lovers avoid tragedy and find a happy ending?”
The movie Gnomeo and Juliet will be released on February 11, 2011.
