Hey, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some rumblings from the Lab.
Have you ever heard something and you call a few friends and then you end up talking with some other people about it and then a few more people and by the time you're done talking about it, you forget to post it on your movie news and rumor web site because you're just sort of generally soft-skulled? Don't you just HATE when that happens?
Earlier tonight, I mentioned a piece of news in the AICN Chat room, and everyone went collectively apeshit. Turns out, I got this confirmed by at least four different spies over the past few weeks, and each time I heard it, I thought I'd already posted it. Don't think I have, though, so here we go.
Steven Spielberg's film of Stanley Kubrick's AI will have a narrator, something that makes perfect sense when you take into account the idea that Kubrick called this film a "fairy tale" and his "PINOCCHIO" in notes he kept and in conversations he had. A deal has been closed now for ROBIN WILLIAMS to narrate the film, taking no screen credit for his services.
