1984

I mentioned 1984 earlier in my post about Michael Jackson.  Here’s another odd coicidence I discovered today about that year thanks to the internet.  The Witches of Eastwick was written by John Updike that year.  You may remember the movie which came out in 1987 starring Cher, Susan Sarandon, Michelle, Pfeiffer, and good ole Jack Nicholson.  I mention this because it’s on television right now.  I never knew John Updike wrote it prior to reading the opening credits a few minutes ago.  So, for some strange reason I went to Amazon.com and looked it up.

I discovered he’s written a sequel called The Widows of Eastwick.  It’s due out October 21st, 2008 and picks up 3 decades later.  My immediate thoughts were a sequel to the movie where the 3 powerhouse women will reunite on screen.  One could only hope…
