Tweets Of The Week

Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s new movie revealed (sort of), two Whedonverse reunions and did you spot the Buffy line in the latest Torchwood ? All in this week’s tweets

Twitter is a fertile ground for breeding new ideas, so it was only a matter of time before THE GREATEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME was conceived in the 140 character stream of consciousness. It all started when Edgar Wright (always good value for anyone not following the Scott Pilgrim director yet) tweeted former WWE superstar Dwayne Johnson aka @ TheRock about joining his “club”...

@ edgarwright Dear @TheRock , I would like to join Team Bring it. Is there an entry fee? A minimum height? Should I bring my gym kit? Sincerely, Edgar.

@ TheRock Dear @edgarwright - No entry fee, height or age requirement. Just puttin our boots to asses daily. Welcome to Team Bring It brother.

If that wasn’t awesome enough, things took a turn for the, er, awesomer when one member of joe public had a flash of inspiration.

@ lewiswaltoncent @edgarwright please make an awesomely geeky action hero movie starring @TheRock with @simonpegg as his evil nemesis - that's a wet dream!

@ edgarwright @lewiswaltoncent @TheRock @simonpegg I concur with this idea.

I say the movie also stars @NickJFrost . But even with all three onboard; top billing still goes to The People's Elbow.

@ simonpegg I'm in @edgarwright but only if I can smell what @therock is cooking. Otherwise it's deeply unfair.

Actually if @TheRock can smell what @nickjfrost is cooking, the film will be more like My Dinner with Andre. Nick's exceptional at cookery.

@ TheRock @simonpegg @edgarwright - I do indeed smell what @nickfrost is cooking."The Frost" as I call him when we're drunk. I smell a big hit boys.

@ edgarwright @TheRock @simonpegg @nickjfrost 'The Rock %26 The Frost' sounds like a stone age caveman buddy flick. Get a red Sharpie out and DATE IT.

@ ManMadeMoon At Attack the Block screening. Crowd of Americans brought me as a translator, just in case.

Attack the Block made me homesick. I used to have a job chasing down and beating up on extra terrestrials.
