51 Candles

Happy Halloween to our loyal readers and happy 51st birthday To Robert Ellsworth Pollard

I'll be hitting the streets tonight with the little ones and trying to avoid our yearly candy induced stomach aches. A night out with a Clone Trooper and Darth Vader, what could be better than that?

We've been waiting patiently to get this story up. We wanted to ensure that we had the facts straight. This news involves Bob as well as Guided By Voices. According to Variety as well as countless other sources, Steven Soderbergh is planning to direct a 3-D, action, rock-n-roll musical about Cleopatra. The project is in it's early stages but word around Hollywood is that Catherine Zeta-Jones will play Cleopatra and Hugh Jackman will play Marc Antony. The films music will be provided by Robert Pollard and his former band Guided By Voices. That's right kids GBV & Bob will be rocking the big screen. The script was written by former GBV bassist and author Jim Greer. You may recall that Robert Pollard provided the music for Steven Soderbergh's 2005 film Bubble, officially released as Music for Bubble under The Fading Captain Series.
