The slash fiction writes itself with this one.

What all these potential Star Wars thespians need to do is leverage a more sophisticated bit of storytelling, and to do so regardless of whether or not they then ignore the 'prequels' (at least the stupid stuff).

There's already an excellent movie about Lewis Carroll, or, more correctly known by his real name, Charles Dodgson, and his relationship with Alice Liddell, called DREAMCHILD, starring Ian Holm.

But this proposed version has already begun to whitewash the issue, by introducing a possible romance with the girl's mother, which is total fiction....

Welcome to movies.

I was thinking the same thing. His eyes were aimed nowhere near the mother.

Oldman was also penned as the voice of General Greivous in Episode III - but he backed out when he found out that the film was non-union. I wouldn't be surprised if it happens again.
