Geisha Movie

Memoirs of a Geisha, Arthur Golden's 1997 bestseller about a naïve Japanese girl turned big-city working girl, should have been a cineplex slam-dunk by now, but rotating directors and some Hollywood-sized grudges have kept the novel from making it to the big screen.

But finally, Columbia Pictures has just announced that production will begin next month in Los Angeles and Japan with Chicago's Rob Marshall at the helm and Steven Spielberg producing.

--I'm really pumped about this. I just adored this book. I smell some Oscars for this pic!

1 I am SO pissed about this. Marshall's next film project was supposed to be "Sweeney Todd," but various snafus in production and rights keep delaying the film. However, I just have to remember that it took years to get "Chicago" on the screen, and the wait was worth it.

2 Are you really that big of a fan of "Sweeny Todd?"
