Nessie's ready for her close-up, Mr. DeMille. Closer. Closer. Whoops, too close. Ah, well, you were a crazy right-wing freak anyway, weren't you, Mr. DeMille?

Hey! A movie about the Loch Ness Monster! Based on The Water Horse by the dude that wrote Babe. And they're even gonna shoot it, for three glorious weeks, in Scotland. The rest of the time, New Zealand will serve as Scotland's body double, as it did for Middle Earth and Narnia. New Zealand gets picked to be body double so often because it has such a nice ass.

In related news, poll results off to the side of The Scotsman's article about the film announces that 87% of respondents believe in Nessie. I've always accepted the myth as such: a load of shit. But the funny thing is, if you spend any time around Loch Ness, you begin to believe it. My father-in-law, for example, has seen Nessie twice in his life. The man doesn't lie, and I'm not about to call him a nutter.
