I bet they change the ending.


I doubt it in view of who is making the two? films that are on the blocks!
However it seems unlikely that it/they will make a lot of money in France.
There is also some interesting casting for the most advanced of the films with Alan Rickman (Harry Potter’s Severus Snape) playing Steven Spurrier, the British organiser of the original tasting and current Decanter consulting editor, and Danny De Vito playing Mike Grgich.
For those interested in more details:

I had no idea that TWO movies were being made. After reading that article in the sfgate, I can say that I am not too excited about 'Bottle Shock' at all, the script sounds terrible...just terrible.

Alan Rickman doesn't make bad movies. If he's in it, I'll watch it.
QUOTE: Sam pulls her top up beside the road, attracting a police officer. When he at first refuses to drive them to a pay phone, she pulls her top up again. Helpless, he gives them a ride while saying, "I don't know much about Chardonnays, but I once tasted a 1953 Gruaud-Larose which was like God's nectar. I'd leave my wife in the gutter for another taste of that voluptuous noble fluid with subtle hints of magnificent licorice and cooked ripe black currant."

Who knew Robert Parker was a police officer before his current job?

Looking at the price the top Chateau´s in Bordeaux are selling at, they surely survived this humiliation. By the way my tastinggroup had a tasting a few weeks ago where 3 of the first grow Bordeaux 1990 totally outclassed top California CS 1991. So i think i will make a movie about the event !!
