Fun — and Shakespeare — with Dame Judi

Apparently this is Fun With Judi Dench week: Just days after seeing her very, very funny cameo in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” (really, it’s the best thing in the movie, even though it only lasts about ten seconds), comes word that she’ll be joining Ian McKellen for a Victorian zombie comedy called “The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet.” This is excellent news, even if it does turn out to be just a rumor. (You never know until the cameras roll.)
Dench and McKellen previously worked together in a 1995 movie called “Jack & Sarah” — and, more interestingly, co-starred in a legendary late-1970s Royal Shakespeare Company production of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth.” Here’s a clip, which I couldn’t take my eyes off — watch it all the way to the end for McKellen’s arrival, and for Dench’s final, chilling “Leave all the rest to me.”
