News & Clues
Several things of interest!
1. Have you seen this Nancy Drew game? Clues: It's in Norwegian, produced in the 70s in Norway, the game board is similar to the US in graphic style with translated words in Norwegian. I'd love to acquire one--contact me if you come across one.
2. Nancy Drew Movie News: Actress Rachael Leigh Cook has been cast as Jane Brighton in the Nancy Drew movie. It would appear the movie is going to be coming out in 2007--many sites have mentioned it as 2007 and some have suggested 2006, but it's becoming more clear it's not as likely to have a 2006 release unless it gets rushed during post production. Therefore, the Nancy Drew Sleuth convention will be in Chicago in October 2006. http://www.ndsleuths.com
(Snicker Snicker)...Please pass this info onto David Gregory, as he is apparently supposed to be the "go to boy" on "breaking news!" ;)
3. Preview of the upcoming Nancy Drew: Girl Detective book, #16 Dangerous Plays:
"Dad, Bess, and I are all set for London when Ned's Shakespeare professor asks us to do a simple favor: to take a look at his townhouse while we're there, since he can't seem to locate the housekeeper and fears something's wrong. Sounds easy enough, so I take the key.
Eager to cross the favor off our list, we stop by 53 Banbury Square shortly after we land. And let's just say things in the townhouse aren't quite tip-top. And the key? Well, it unlocks a Pandora's box of serious trouble."
Hope the townhouse is spooky!
