McAvoy Explores Gnome Love

James McAvoy and Emily Blunt will voice star-crossed lovers in "Gnomeo and Juliet" for Miramax. Kate Winslet and Ewan MacGregor were originally attached to the project, as we first reported, but it apparently didn't pan out. Described as a "loose and edgy" adaptation of Shakespeare's play, the film depicts McAvoy and Blunt as would be gnome lovers from rival gardens. I'm scared off by the fact that Elton John will contribute several songs. He lost me after the Lion King and ripping off his "Candle in the Wind" song for Lady Di.
