Vanilla Ice Is Captain Hook, Hook Baby!

vanilla ice as captain hook in peter pan

The good news: Vanilla Ice will be playing Captain Hook in an upcoming theatrical production of Peter Pan.

The bad news: Those of us who don't live in England will have to start saving up for plane tickets.

That's right, folks! Vanilla Ice will be starring as Peter Pan's nemesis in an upcoming stage adaptation of J.M. Barrie's play, which will start playing in England this December.

But it gets even weirder….the production will be completely in pantomime!

How wild is that? Here's what the theater manager for the production had to say about it:

"(He) has never performed in a pantomime before, but I am sure that he will go down as a hit."

Crazy! We're very curious to see Ice's acting/pantomiming skillz!

Go ninja Vanilla, go Vanilla, go!

The Weinsteins Are Headed To Broadway

weinsteins headed to broadway

Last we heard about the Weinsteins, they were totally giving the shaft to the Fraggle Rock movie.

We thought it was due to their foray into the video game industry, but now it looks like they've got another new venture which could be keeping them quite busy: producing plays for Broadway!

For their first theatre project, the Weinsteins are developing a musical based on 2004's Finding Neverland, which starred Johnny Depp as Peter Pan creator J.M. Barrie.

Other films that Bob and Harvey are looking to bring to Broadway include Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Chocolat, and Cinema Paradiso.

We'll try to be cautiously optimistic about some of these, but it's tough not to be skeptical.

Chocolat and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon were two of the best films that came out in 2000 - treat them with care, boys!

And for the sake of film lovers everywhere who grew up watching Cinema Paradiso, please don't ruin it! The film won the Oscar for best Foreign Language film in 1990, and we know it has a special place in the hearts of lots of people.

Keep that in mind while moving forward, Weinsteins! Thanks!

Would U like to see the Weinsteins adapt some of their classic films into Broadway productions?
