Now that the new Star Wars movie The Clone Wars has been announced (Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008)), I was wondering if anyone knows if Lucasfilm contacted Christopher Lee about voicing Count Dooku? I know Corey Burton did the voice for the TV series and the video games (couldn't hold a candle to CL's voice though) but I thought they might ask him back for another big-screen outing. Just thought I'd ask if anyone knew anything.
P.S. Off-topic, but I came across this interesting nugget in the Rumours section on Ian McKellen's official website:
Rumour, 12 April 2003: "i heard that Ian and Christoper (saruman) got in to a fight in public, in london and almost killed each other. plz tell me this isnt true"
[B][B][=Book Antiqua]Fact: "Wherever The Fellowship of the Ring is screened, Gandalf and Saruman fight. Elsewhere Christopher Lee and I are best of pacific friends." [I]
