Rupert Everett told SCI FI Wire that he plays a ghost in the upcoming fantasy film Stardust, a live-action movie based on Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name. "Stardust is another kid's movie," Everett said in interviews while promoting Shrek the Third, in which he has a role. "It's a fairy story, and it's done by a man called Matthew Vaughn [director of Layer Cake]. It's a really good movie, and I'm not just saying that because I'm here. It's a film about the real world and a parallel universe alongside the real world. It's got Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert De Niro, Claire Danes and tons of people."
