We've become a lot busier with our own lives and the lack of news on James hasn't helped to keep up our interest in the pages! We'd like to keep more up to date with the site now, but hope you can all understand problems we may have with this.

It is reported that Vanity Fair finished filming over the weekend and we have found a short article here, dated April 6th, which is a brief interview with the director of Vanity Fair, Mira Nair. Vanity Fair is briefly mentioned at the end of the article, and it looks like we finally have a release date for the film. Whether it arrives as scheduled is anyone's guess...

Tell us about your latest film, Vanity Fair.
I have been a fan of William Thackeray's novel ever since I read it in Simla when I was 16. Now I am happy I am making a film on it. We just finished the film last week, and hope to release it by September 1.
How difficult was it to convince Hollywood actors to act in your film?
