Altman's Resurrection

It was sighs all round this morning in the Londonist office when we read the news that Robert Altman is to direct Resurrection Blues at the Old Vic, starting next month.

The audible relief sprang not from the fact that Altman is an accomplished director and should do a cracking job of Arthur Miller's script.

Nor was it anything to do with the fact that Altman has brought on board Neve Campbell and Matthew Modine (although we're sure there'll be a few Wild Things fans in the opening night audience).

No, our relief stems from the fact that Justin Timberlake seems to have disappeared from the list of cast members.

Remember back in September of last year when all the rumours said that Kevin Spacey was so enamoured by J.T. that he'd offered him a part in the play? Well it looks like they were only rumours after all.

Or maybe Spacey's new year's resolution was to stop sabotaging his theatre career once and for all. We can only hope.
