CHRISTIAN BALE & NICOLAS CAGE IN THE FILM ABOUT FAMOUS SERBIAN SCIENTIST TESLA? JULIANNE MOORE IS AN EVIL WITCH IN "THE SEVENTH SON". DOUG LIMAN DOING A FILM ON THE FALL OF CHINESE EMPIRE?


 Julianne Moore has joined Jeff Bridges in THE SEVENTH SON, a film adaptation of the famous THE LAST APPRENTICE saga which follows Thomas, seventh son of a seventh son, who is apprenticed to the local Spook, whose job is to fight evil spirits and witches, so he expects a life of danger. However, the boy doesn't realize just how soon he'll face a powerful enemy alone, as Mother Malkin escapes her confinement while the Spook is away. Thomas is forced to use his wits, and the help of his enigmatic new friend, Alice, to fight the evil witch. And defeating her is only the start of the boy's problems. Moore will play the evil Mother Malkin while Alex Pettyfer and Jennifer Lawrence have turned down the two leading roles in order to star in THE HUNGER GAMES.

SHORT HEADLINES Dennis Quaid has just joined Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel and Uma Thurman in PLAYING THE FIELD, a comedy in which Butler will play a former soccer star who becomes the desire and the target of every lonesome mom in town when he starts coaching his son's soccer team. Biel is his ex wife, Thurman is one of the crazed moms, while Quaid is the coach of a rival team. *According to "FirstShowing" Doug Liman's next project might be a period drama about Morris Abraham Two-Gun Cohen, the famous British bodyguard of revolutionary and political leader Sun Yat-sen, who led the overthrowing of China's last imperial dynasty.

Serbian actor/producer Vladimir Rajcic and Oscar winning producer Branko Lustig (SCHLINDER'S LIST, GLADIATOR) are preparing a huge film about famous Serbian inventor Nikola Tesla. TESLA RULER OF THE WORLDwill focus on the events in Tesla's life which are linked to modern day technological crisis. Acclaimed historical figures such as Thomas Edison, J.P. Morgan and George Westinghouse will all play prominent roles in the film. Tesla has invented alternating current as well as 750 other patents introducing the world to the fundamentals of robotry, computers, missile science, space-age
technologies,  satellites, microwaves, beam weapons, an nuclear fusion. Many claim that he created the 21st century because the modern world would not exist without his inventions. Tesla will be played by Vladimir Rajcic himself (although there are rumors that the role has been offered to Christian Bale as well), and another two Serbian actors who work in Hollywood are already in the cast - Rade Serbedgia and Lolita Davidovich, while Nicolas Cage could take the role of Thomas Edison. The producers are negotiating with other A league stars for other roles and there are rumors that Mike Newell could direct the film.

    always here to prepare a feast for my boys' eyes ;)

    it will be, the stories around Tesla are always intriguing. Currently there's a rumor that US government has been using Tesla's great weapon (which causes huge tectonic shakes) the same day when Japan was hit by an earthquake. They were apparently using it when tsunamis have hit Asian coast a few years ago, and the first time Tesla himself used the weapon he created earthquakes in Russian province of Tunguska (but they explained it with that huge meteor crash story) ... It's quite spooky.

  4. I am very curious about the Tesla project. He is one of the most fascinating people ever and on my "if you could have dinner with anyone living or dead" list.

    Butler in another rom com, are you freaking kidding me?He needs to fire whoever is telling him that these movies are good for him.

    ReplyDelete
  5. The Tesla film sounds fantastic. I'm a total geek for such intrigue! If it's indeed Cage and Bale, well that would just be equal parts bizarre and terrific.

  6. @Melsy
    yep, he is on all the lists of the most important people in history, he really changed so many things ... And he was so interesting privately as well, with all of his phobias :) and all the scandals around him never getting a Noble prize ....
    Yep, although I adore Butler, he really needs some serious films :)

    @Matty
    he he bizarre and terrific - you stole the words right out of my mouth :)))The even more bizarre thing is that Megan Fox and Jessica Alba were in negotiations for the roles in TESLA film too. Now, that's really bizarre :(

  7. Nicolas Cage in the same film as my beloved C Bale???? OMG, That is blasphemous!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Bale's already done a film that featured Tesla - The Prestige.

    ReplyDelete
  9. THE SEVENTH SON and PLAYING THE FIELD both sounds like they might be interesting. Not sure about Nicolas Cage as Edison. Could be fun.

  10. i don't think Gerard Butler is a good choice for a comedy. i can't even stand not seeing him half-naked like he did in 300! after seeing him in 300, everything else just doesn't seemed right on him. n i wonder when will it start being right?

    ReplyDelete
  11. @ Alex - I was just gonna say the same thing, that was Bowie as Tesla right?

    I'm not too crazy about the cast for Gerry Berry's flick, but of course I'll still watch it. Oh man, I hope the script is good.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've never thought Julianne Moore was all that attractive, but perhaps I my eyes are deceiving me?

    ReplyDelete
  13. the seventh son sounds like it could be really good!
    but the tesla one sounds like it could be EPIC!
    just no cage! or megan fox! come on people!

  14. Hey Dezzy - J Moore looks totally hot. Wow!! And the Serbian fild sounds great. Can't wait. =D

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ahh... Tesla. Remember that movie several years back... what was it? The Apprentice? No... I don't know. Can't remember, OH! The Illusionist? Jessica Biel, Hugh Jackman? Didn't it have Tesla in it?

    Good stuff~ :o) <3

  16. I can not wait to see that Serbian film. I love hearing about men who have made so many changes in the world being recognized.

  17. Beyond excited for "Tesla Ruler of the World." I am a huge fan of Tesla so I am thrilled to see this project in effect. I am also slightly interested in "Playing the Field." I love Butler although the film he did with Aniston was horrible. I won't hold it against him... yet. : )

    ReplyDelete
  18. David Bowie can reprise the role of Nikolo Tesla. He could play the older one and Bale could play the younger Tesla. Just an idea :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Jonathon
    do not despair, after all, if he gets the role, Cage will play Edison who is the villain in this story :)

    @Alex
    yes, that's true

    @Lynda
    well, pretty much everything around us is a conspiracy, if we were to reveal all of them the world would never be the same ...

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Mason
    I'm guessing Cage is easy to persuade to appear in the film, and thus they've chosen him

    @Levian
    you are totally right, it's should be illegal for Butler to star in any film which doesn't involve a total absence of costumes :)

    @Flixy
    yep, it's our eternal dilemma - to love or to hate Butler's choice of roles :) And he knows we have a soft spot in our hearts for him and he uses it big time.

  21. @Cheeseboy
    nope, it's not your eyes, she can be quite gorgeous sometimes :) If you use a search button in the right side bar with her name you will find another post on her featuring other hot pics :) /some of them full nude/

    @Vics
    I can't even grasp why anyone put Megan Fox in a film like this?

    @RaShelle
    glad you like the pic and the news, darling ;)

    @Leigh
    yes, it was THE PRESTIGE :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Clarissa
    hopefully the film could reintroduce Tesla to the world. He was one of the greatest, if not the greatest one, scientist in history who never got a Nobel prize.

    @Nicole
    glad you're excited about Tesla project :)
    I liked that film with Aniston only because Butler always has chemistry with his partners (Except Hilary Swank) but the story could have been better, that's true

    @Jaccsy
    as far as I've got it so far, Vladimir will play older Tesla, while Bale will play the younger one if he gets the role in the end.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Woohoo! I can't wait for the TESLA movie!

    Now, what is this about Alex Pettyfer and THE HUNGER GAMES? Must go read your older posts.

    ReplyDelete
  24. The Tesla film looks very interesting have to wait and see which one of the two actors gets the role, both are outstanding actors, but probably thinking about the box office....Christian Bale perhaps?!
    What I don't like is Nicolas Cage in this film, I personally don't like his acting skills and I can't stand his voice.

    About Gerard Butler, I would love to see him in a good serious role; I think he has been in far too many Romantic Comedies.

    ReplyDelete
  25. A realistic film about the true Tesla story could be pretty cool, although I did like the scifi Tesla as portrayed in The Prestige

  26. I usually can't stand Cage, but I could actually picture him pulling off Edison.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That picyure of Ms. Moore makes me se her in a whole new light. She didn't even look like that in BOOGIE NIGHTS.

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Emily
    ooh, you must, I know my girls like THE HUNGER GAMES so I published a number of posts recently on its casting ;) Jennifer Lawrence is the lead, and Alex Pettyfer and Hunter Parish could take the lead male roles

    @Summer
    yep, Cage isn't really popular among the more refined moviegoers :) But maybe he could pull off a villain, since Edison was a negative figure in Tesla's life.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Arlee
    Yes, sometimes I'm shocked that most people know about Tesla only from some video game and from THE PRESTIGE.

    @Matthew
    yep, since Edison is a villain in the story, he could.

    @Movies
    he he ... I've put a number of other sexy pics of Julianne in some recent posts, you might wanna check them out too :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. What!! I didn't even know that Bradley Cooper was dating Renee Zellweger!! I never could have pictured them together, weird. : ) Yeah, Bradley Cooper is super cute and worth at least staring at through Limitless. hahaa : ) Have a great day Dez!!

  31. Ooo! Gerard Butler!

    The Tesla film could be interesting. But Nicolas Cage?

    ReplyDelete
  32. @Nicole
    yep, it seems everybody is breaking up in Hollywood, Scarlett has divorced Ryan Reynolds and started a relationship with Sean Penn, Rachel Weisz has left Darren Aronofsky, Justin Timberlake broke off with Jessica Biel to date Milla Kunis and Olivia Munn, total craziness :)

    @MPax
    he he it seems poor Cage is not popular among my readers :))

    ReplyDelete
  33. The Tesla movie sounds like it could be interesting. Cage and Bale together in a movie could be really good. I'd actually like to see that.

    ReplyDelete
  34. glad you like the idea, JL ;) I really hope the producers will find a studio and make this film.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've read the first book in the Last Apprentice series and it was pretty fun. I didn't know they were doing a movie adaptation. Thanks for the scoop. I think Bridges and Moore will do well. I'm wondering who will end up as Thomas.

    ReplyDelete
  36. yep, Okie, they just sold the rights and the film is in preproduction. The Thomas role is to be cast soon I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would like to see film about Tesla, but I have a feeling that, no matter how good it is, it won't be received well in Serbia.
    He is really a popular figure in Serbia.
    Sure, many will be excited with possibility of Tesla film, but not with execution. (Everybody wants to be director, script writer, historian, preacher... And everyone is smarter/better_informed than everyone else.)

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's true, Bels, TESLA probably won't be well received here, mostly because I'm not sure Rajcic has a drama in mind. He will probably go for an action thriller with lots of intrigue.
    Tesla is probably the most beloved Serb of all times in Serbia.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Christian Bale in a new movie about Nikola Tesla my heart skiped a beat. I really hope this isn't a hoax. I would love to see Bale as Tesla he is perfect for the role and Tesla is my hero.

    ReplyDelete
  40. NIKOLA TESLA/Serbian scientific genius/ WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST AND MOST GIFTED MEN EVER TO HAVE WALKED THIS EARTH.THE GREAT INVENTOR NIKOLA TESLA, WAS A MAN WHOSE GENIUS WAS FAR BEYOND THE GREAT MINDS OF HIS DAY. HE HAD AN INTELLECT THAT AT TIMES SEEMED ALMOST UNEARTHLY. I SUPPOSE THIS IS WHY SOME HAVE SPECULATED THAT SUCH A REMARKABLE INDIVIDUAL COULD NOT HAVE SPRUNG FROM THE BOSOM OF MOTHER EARTH, BUT INSTEAD WAS THE PRODUCT OF EXTRATERRESTRIAL INTERVENTION.IF SOMEONE CAN NAME ANOTHER MAN TO COMPARE WITH THIS GREAT GENTLEMAN, PLEASE TELL US.
