    Los Angeles (Hollywood Reporter) - Weeks after Disney's new animation chiefs scrapped Elton John's musical "Gnomeo & Juliet," the pop star has taken his project to Miramax Films.

    "I am very excited about working with Miramax," John said in a statement. "Gnomeo' is a edgy concept, and Miramax is the perfect home to push the envelope in animation."

    THe animated twist on Shakespeare's tragic romance is set in the world of tacky garden gnomes. It will be produced in Britain, with lyricist Tim Rice still on board to collaborate with John on the songs, and Kate Winslet attached to voice Juliet. Rice and John won an Oscar in 1995 for their work on the 'Lion King' song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight."

    Elton John, please crawl into a hole somewhere and stop torturing the world with your soul-less comments and craptastic music, thanks!!!
