And there’s more good news: “We still have a meeting scheduled for June with DualStar Entertainment, which is the vehicle for teen stars Ashley Olsen and Mary Kate Olsen, and also for the Sprouse twins,” says Farrow. “The Olsen Twins would be great for either a live feature or an animated film. What people forget is that the Olsen Twins can sing, and in fact, they actually have a number of music CDs that have gone multi-platinum. And they have the deepest distribution channel in the world -- it’s called Wal-Mart. So we are awaiting this meeting with much anticipation and confidence. Something always seems to pop up out of nowhere.”

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen don't want their celebrity status overshadowed their clothing ranges.
The 24-year-old twin siblings - who have been famous since they were babies - have become well-respected in the fashion industry thanks to their lines The Row, Elizabeth and James and Olsenboye, but have so far shied away from big runway productions because they want the focus to be on their clothes rather than them.
Ashley said: "We did it because we didn't want people to buy the clothes because it's us. We wanted the product to speak for itself.
We are in such a unique situation. People have been watching us since we were nine months old.

Ashley added to WWD: "I felt there was something missing from the marketplace. I was a shopper. I felt that basic luxury was missing. We started it very small, selling only to one store at a time, starting with Barneys New York. It was completely separate from Dualstar."
Mary-Kate added: "I wasn't as big a shopper. But I was horseback riding since I was six years old, so it was all about fit for me."
