TEAM BURNS - RT BURNS

Recommended Posts

:wave::wave:

Hello all I am Lady Alexandria and I would like to tell you a wee about Team Burns that Rosemarie and I have started. To share our love, passion for a Future Gerard Film Role:

Born in Alloway, Ayrshire, in 1759 to William Burness, a poor tenant farmer, and Agnes Broun, Robert Burns was the eldest of seven.It was at this tender age of 15 that Burns penned his first verse, "My Handsome Nell", which was an ode to the other subjects that dominated his life, namely scotch and women. This group of Burns Passion Lovers have been know as TEAM BURNS and is dedicated to a future Burns Movie with Scottish Actor Gerard Butler in the lead - a role he was born to play. A dream can become a reality. Handsome Gerard Butler with his velvety voice and commanding screen appeal will surely bring the legend of poet Robert Burns to life. Who better to play the role of Scotland's national Bard than Scotland's own Gerard Butler. Come join us as we explore the role of a lifetime for actor Gerard Butler. Another Grand Adventure to take us on the rides of our lives and another journey to embark on with Gerry!!!! From the new King of Fans article: One project Butler hopes to take on next year is a biopic of the Scottish poet Robert Burns. "It is a project I am passionate about, and though it has been a struggle to get financing, it is my full intention to make it," he says. After the premiere of "300," King Leonidas is more likely than ever to get his way.

Here is a link to Team Burns, where we share, laughter, friendship and a common passion for Robert Burns:

I thought I would add this:

As many of you know of my Scottish background and my family Heritage with the Grant Clan, well this brings out what we had sent to Gerard to start our Burns Journey.

For over 100 years this wonderful Burns book as been passed down through the generations and it passed to me by my Grandfather who told me before he died, to pass it along to a special person who is kind of heart and kind of soul, he made me swear to do it as his last dying wish. He said it has to go to a person who is full of dreams and a soul that touches others at it travels through life, well to me that is Gerard, he has touches so many and continues to touch so many.

My Great Great Grandfather had it with him all during the first World War and he said it kept him sane all through the death and madness of the war, it has seen many a battlefield all through Europe and he prized it above even his cigarettes. He read from it as one of his fellow soliders lay dying on the battle field and held his hand to ease his suffering, so the book as been many places and has been help near to many people's heart in my family and it was sent to Gerard from all of us at Team Burns.

It just seemed the right thing to do and to get us rolling to begin this wonderful Burns Journey together.

The book is 177 years old and I have read it many times as a child and held great wonder in my eyes.

It is published in 1830 Volume 11 - Poetical Works Of Robert Burns

We had a special person get it to Gerard since the book is very Rare and old and we want to make sure he gets it.

We also sent along a Cuban Cigar to toast his success to "300" and what a picture that would make to see Gerard smoking his cigar reading the Burns Book.

Thank you all from Team Burns for making this the start of a wonderful Journey together!!!!

Hi Team Burns on GALS,

I thought you might like to know that at least one poem from all the entrants in our Burns Poetry

Contest has had the honour of being put up on Burnsian Expert David Sibbald's site. All the links

can be found on the above RT page, with all the prize winners and lots of Robert Burns facts to enjoy,

in preparation for our gorgeous Gerard to play his passion project and the role he was born to play, not forgetting our other favourites of course. :pant:

Thank you for all your support. :claphands::claphands::claphands:

I am crying as I write this. What a wonderful gesture of friendship to Gerry! He must know how lucky he is to have such a dedicated fan base! I am hoping that Gerry will get this project off the ground as he did with Beowulf. You are so right when you say that he is a perfect actor to play the role of Robert Burns! Isn't it wonderful that the more exposure Gerry gets, the closer this project comes to fruition! Reading poetry is a lost art in this age of computers. I sometimes think I was born in the wrong century as I love poetry from books. Thank for speaking for all of us with your gift!

We have another exciting Team Burns interview in the works for all of you:

********Screenwriter: Alan Sharp**********

Mob Films - Burns Film - This film is in development. Filming may begin in Spring 2008.

I have been in contact with Alan Sharp via email and he has agreed to answer any questions to do with the SCREENWRITING PROCESS!!!!!

So please I think we will again set a limit of 20 total questions and I will send them off to Alan Sharp and post the replies here on RT Burns Only!!!!

So Team Burns let's get our thinking caps on and get some great questions to do with SCREENWRITING for Mr. Sharp.

ALAN SHARP (Writer) had the opportunity to explore the story of one of his native Scotland's greatest heroes with the screenplay for ROB ROY.

Early in his career, he distinguished himself as a noted screenwriter of American Westerns, although most were written before he'd ever stepped foot in America. Among the Westerns he scripted are Robert Aldrich's "Ulzana's Raid", Peter Fonda's "The Hired Hand" and Ted Kotcheff's "Billy Two Hats".

He found equal success in other genres, writing the screenplays for Sam Peckinpah's final film "The Osterman Weekend", based on Robert Ludlum's bestseller, Arthur Penn's psychological thriller "Night Moves" and Richard Fleischer's "The Last Run". His additional credits include "Damnation Alley", "Cat Chaser" and the cable telefilms "Descending Angel" and "The Last Hit". Sharp also wrote and directed the film "Little Treasure".

Sharp was born in Alyth, Scotland and raised in the tough Scottish port town of Greenock. At the age of 14, he followed in his father's footsteps, becoming a shipyard worker. Four years later, he enlisted in the army.

After his discharge, he began his writing career as a novelist, although his first book was five years in the making. The time turned out to be well spent, as it resulted in the award-winning A Green Tree in Gedde, which established Sharp as a major literary newcomer. He confirmed the promise of that first book with his second tome, The Wind Shifts, before turning his attention to writing screenplays.

We will post all details here ----

Team Burns we have only just begun!!!!!

Just email me your questions to : shoryski@shaw.ca

Have an awesome day Team Burns!!!!!

Rose, the interview really blew me away because so much thought and passion was given in ever answer David gave. It is a rare treat to have such a Burns Scholar as David Sibbald answer questions for us.

He really brings Burns to life for all of us.

Bravo to you Rose for all your hard work and to David for spending so much time to answer our questions about Burns.

This is a must see interview no doubt about it.

Thank you

Hi Team Burns,

Some of you may remember, when we started RT Burns a long while back,

our idea was to get as many people together to help spread the word for a Robert Burns film to be made with Gerard, as possible. Hence trying to bring in some wonderful Scottish people too, with a high profile.

David was one and he graciously accepted to help us, alongside Andrew McDiarmid and Prof. Purdie and also

a Rock Band called Spotty Dogg, they were brought to our attention by Ruby and i must say they are super guys and were so helpful and wanted to join in with making a Burns Tribute Song for 2009. Alan told me yesterday they had made an interview on the radio, to be aired in December i think, where they mention this and our efforts, I was amazed, and thank you Alan and Jamie for that unexpected mention, we are honoured.

Part of the interview is on their site now for download, which i have linked above. Apart from the pleasure of hearing them, you are going to love those accents girls, i can detect a little of the old Gerard voice in there, they explain their music and really come across as lovely guys. I hope you will enjoy listening to it as much as i did, they deserve our support and i cannot believe the effort they are putting into this Burns song, it is going to be amazing, this is not Rock as they can do everything, this is full blown scottish emotion with bagpipes, choirs etc and i cannot wait to hear the finished product. I really take my hat off to them.

So many super people are coming together for this, which is what Alex and i always wanted, the more people spread the word on all levels the better, so when a film gets made it is going to be so anticipated and talked about and we hope the whole of Scotland especially, will be behind Gerard on this one, that has always been our wish from the beginning and we will carry on at Team Burns making this come true with all the wonderful support and love we have here.

Please give the boys your support because i think they are just lovely, well you will hear that for yourselves.

Enjoy.

Love Rose

Rose,

Thanks for posting this info about the lads at Spotty Doggs, it is amazing and an honor to have us mentioned by them

I look forward to the Burns Tribute song when it is finished, it will be great.

From the very beginning RT Burns and Team Burns have tried to connect people from all corners of the world to share their love and passion for all things Burns and for a future Gerard role in a Burns Film.

I can see we have attracted many facinating people who are so willing to share their talents and knowledge with all of us -----that is what it is all about ---Team Work!!!!

Team Burns supports the lads all the way

Yes Alex,

It is amazing how many people are taking this to heart and doing everything they can to help. I think it is wonderful that Spotty Dogg just sat and composed a Burns Tribute, without really knowing us back then, shows you how special they are. Not forgetting Swannie's son Nathan of course, he too showed great interest in composing some Burns music. Let us hope something really fantastic comes out of everyone's genuine efforts

to get a Robert Burns filmed made next year, starring our favourite guy, Gerard Butler. :pant:

Thank you to everyone who has shown interest and supported RT Burns, it is so appreciated. :claphands:

Love Rose
