Sydney Morning Herald and Australia's Daily Telegraph.) The series' producers, Fiona Eaggar and Deb Cox, have said in interviews that they'd like to do a trilogy of films and make them more action-packed, along the lines of the Indiana Jones films.
I love the Indiana Jones films, I enjoy the Miss Fisher series, and part of me is really up for this. I read a lot of vintage adventure stories, and while I enjoy the action, I do spend a lot of time getting annoyed at the casual racism/sexism, so in that respect an adventure written now but set in the past is perfect. (Anachronism, schmanacronism; I'm happy to lose a bit of historical accuracy if it means we can also ditch the racism and sexism.)
That said, part of me doesn't really get why they have to take an established character and play with her. The Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries programme has a lot of dedicated fans, but fans of historical murder mysteries aren't always the same people who like action movies. While Miss Fisher will be in the films, there's no word yet about Jack, Dot, Bert, Cec and other popular characters from the television programme.
What do you think? Keen to see Phryne kicking arse and taking names? Simply keen to see more of those gorgeous costumes? Or thinking this is all getting a bit silly now and you wish she'd get back to regular crimebusting?
