    It is a mini-interview with JMS. Not too much new info, but still a nice short read, which reconfirms next months announcement.

        Now that you have guessed it, I can reveal the truth: JMS has actually completed post-production on the first film of the "Memory of Shadows" film trilogy (all 3 flicks already shot, in obscure Roswell, New Mexico) and it is being realsed at Cannes in May.

        I believe that when we leave a place, part of it goes with us and part of us remains. Go anywhere in the station, when it is quiet, and just listen. After a while, you will hear the echoes of all our conversations, every thought and word we've exchanged. Long after we are gone .. our voices will linger in these walls for as long as this place remains. But I will admit .. that the part of me that is going .. will very much miss the part of you that is staying.

          Cannes

          Well, the Cannes Film Festival runs from May 12 through May 23 this year, which fits JMS's "Ides of May" comment.

          Is it common practice for studios to announce upcoming projects at Cannes?

            It has been known to happen, but the 'wrong side of the river" comment sounds much more like New York, and I don't think WB is the type of studio to announce or show at Cannes, which is really for indie films. I think Cannes, is way, way down the list of possibilities.

              I don't think there's any precident about studios announcing from
              Cannes, and agree with grumbler that I don't think it's really a viable conclusion. However, major studios do and have for decades shown and competed in Cannes. It's only for the indies with money and the studios. Real indies have troubles getting screened. But remember, Cannes also screens a lot of films from other countries.

              As for the Vorlon-esque statement? I truly think only JMS really got it, and laughed his ass off after he said it. We'll probably get it once the announcment is made, at which time we'll all simultaneously slap our foreheads and say, "DOH!"

              And I still think "wrong side of the river" is an indication of LA, since for JMS anything west of the Hudson is in fact all lumped into the same mental image..."the wrong side of the river." The big clue there was the clear hint that the announcment would seem to be coming from WB studios...meaning it's probably a feature film project of some kind.

              Personally, I'm still hoping for a pre-planned trilogy...yeesssss.

                could it really be?


                Surely not.


                But wait a minute.


                CAN is the opposite of CAN'T.

                CANNES is pronounced the same!



                Could it really be.?


                I do hope so - Theatrical Movie Original Script?

                  CE, we have been over this... JMS is from New Jersey - the "wrong side of the river" to a New Yorker, and a phrase the Joiseyans resent. So he wouldn't use it to describe where is is now living (L.A.) - he would use it to get back at the Yorkers.

                  The fact that all the networks are announcing their series plans in NYC at the very time to which he refers makes it highly likely, IMO, that the project is series-related. Since the only series "in the can" is B5 itself, I expect that the news refers to the series and/or something to be done to promote the series (like a new TV movie, used as TNT used its commissioned TV movies toi help create an audience).

                  That's stinging together a bunch of guesses, though. I hope you are right and I am wrong - except that I don't think you CAN be right about a New Jersey boy using a hated New York insult to describe his current home!

                    Cannes is pronounced something like "kahn." Different "a" sound completely, and not close to a homonym.

                      Can = Canada
                      NJ boy = wrong side of the river means St Lawrence.

                      That's my uneducated guess.

                      So, I think it'll be filmed in the Great White.........unless he means that the whole thing's going in the can.

                        It's amazing how much thought and theory goes into such a simple phrase...

                          Can is the opposite of can't !

                          I suppose I agree that Cannes may not sound like CAN exactly - but we are not talking an exact scientific answer here - this is spoiler central and if you ask someone in the UK how to pronounce CANNES thay would say 'CAN' - as would half of the people I know who have been to the south of france.

                          So it is open to opinion I suppose. And we are all entitled to ours aren't we?

                          that said, he could mean that the deal and everything behind it is in the can.
                          or that the tomato soup is in the can (?)
                          or that the coke is in the can (??)

                          Something is going to be announced in the middle of may.
                          It is probably a feature film. ( but we can all speculate until then !)

                          Rejoice Fans! I am sure we will all be delighted come mid may.
                          ( or thoroughly deflated - oh well...... )

                          and remember...

                          my head hurts - time for sleep!

                              ::laughs:: Here's some speculation about his statement that hasn't been seen yet...

                              Maybe saying it was the opposite of "can't" was just a fancy way ot telling the interviewer that there is a new B5 project in the works. Just a thought
