NEW YORK - August 21, 2008

James McAvoy and Emily Blunt are in talks to star as "Gnomeo and Juliet."

It's a new animated version of the Shakespeare tragedy.

The two actors would provide voices for gnomes from rival gardens who fall in love.

Elton John is co-producing the movie which will also produce a number of his classic tunes.

Production is expected to be completed by 2010, according to reports by Reuters.
