LOVE IS A DANGEROUS EXPERIMENT IN TRAILER FOR AMAZON'S 'ZOE' SF MOVIE WITH EWAN MCGREGOR, LEA SEYDOUX, THEO JAMES, MIRANDA OTTO! LEA SEYDOUX, JOEL KINNAMAN TO STAR IN 'HORSEBOY'

  'ZOE' SF TRAILER
STARRING EWAN MCGREGOR AND LEA SEYDOUX
Zoe hits Amazon Prime July 20th
Literally the only thing the spy has to offer you this exquisitely boring end of the week is interesting, and also confusing, trailer for new drama movie ZOE starring Ewan McGregor, which airs next month on Amazon Prime.

ZOE 
 also starring Lea Seydoux, Theo James, Miranda Otto and Rashida Jones, sees Ewan (who is also working on the adaptation of Stephen KIng's Doctor Sleep) and Lea leading this science fiction movie as two colleagues at a revolutionary research lab who design technology to improve and perfect romantic relationships. As their work progresses, their discoveries become more profound.



  LEA SEYDOUX TO JOIN
 JOEL KINNAMAN IN 'HORSEBOY'
Lea will play the mother of the autistic child
Speaking of Lea Seydoux, the French actress will also join Joel Kinnaman in HORSEBOY drama, in which they will play Emily and Jonathan whose son Noah, is an autistic child. He rarely talks and isn't improving despite his parents' efforts to connect with him. Yet, there is a silver lining: Jonathan notices that Noah is more peaceful and seems more able to communicate while riding horses. It sparks a crazy idea: he will take his family for a ride through the Mongolian plains to meet shamans. The journey will be transformative. It is the powerful story of two parents' love for their child as they decide to take the biggest risk imaginable. A life-changing experience not only to rescue their son, but also to rescue their family.

There he will meet Tehura, who will become his wife, and the subject of his greatest canvases.

The night before she's scheduled to be euthanized, the circus owner's 14-year old daughter, Dawn, sneaks Flora from the circus. All that stands between them and the safety of the elephant preserve is two hundred kilometres of woods, one raging river, two elephant hunters and the fear of not making it.

Green (Emily Mortimer), a free spirited widow, puts grief behind her and risks everything to open up a bookshop - the first such shop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough, England. Fighting damp, cold and considerable local apathy she struggles to establish herself but soon her fortunes change for the better. By exposing the narrow minded local townsfolk to the best literature of the day, she opens their eyes thereby causing a cultural awakening in a town which has not changed for centuries. Her activities bring her an ally in Mr Brundish (Bill Nighy) who is himself sick of the town's stale atmosphere. But this mini social revolution soon brings her fierce enemies: she invites the hostility of the town's less prosperous shopkeepers and also crosses Mrs. Gamart (Patricia Clarkson)!

HERNAN CORTES BESTSELLER 'CONQUISTADOR' BY BUDDY LEVY TO BECOME EPIC TV SERIES! WERNER HERZOG TO BUILD A TOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF AMAZON JUNGLE IN PERIOD SET 'FORDLANDIA' TV SERIES!

 'CONQUISTADOR' MINI SERIES

The series will be based on Buddy Levy book
CONQUISTADOR Hernan Cortes, King Montezuma, and the Last Stand of the Aztecs by Buddy Levy with intention to turn it into mini series. It brings the tragic tale of conquest and defeat, of colonization and resistance, of empires won and civilizations lost and of the violent confluence of two empires previously unknown to each other. It’s the epic account of Hernan Cortes, one of the greatest conquerors history has ever known, and Montezuma, the complex leader of the ancient civilization that he would oppose. Their stories culminate in the cataclysmic battle that would be the end of one world and the making of a new one.
SIMILAR ANNOUNCED PROJECTS
The spy has informed you that Spielberg is preparing CORTES series with Javier Bardem for Amazon, and that  Roland Emmerich is preparing a movie MAYA LORD set at about the same time.

This won't be the first Amazonian adventure project for Herzog, as he already directed Amazon set Fitzcaraldo back in the eighties!
