AMY ADAMS IN "THE ORPHANAGE"! "THE WALKING DEAD 2" TO BE AIRED IN 122 COUNTRIES! "TITANIC:BLOOD & STEEL" SHOOTING IN SERBIA WITH CHRIS NOTH, NEVE CAMPBELL & DEREK JACOBI! "ROMANCING THE STONE" GETS A SHOW ON NBC!

According to "MovieWeb", always adorable Amy Adams is in early talks to take the lead in the English language version of Spanish horror THE ORPHANAGE. In the story, written by Guillermo del Toro, she might play a young woman who returns to the orphanage where she was raised with plans to turn the facility into a home for mentally disabled children, but her little  son begins to encounter the same demon which tormented her many years ago.  As you know, Amy has the premiere of THE MUPPETS film this December, and in 2013 she will be Louis Lane in MAN OF STEEL and she will also star in THE MASTER, a film about a powerful leader of a religious sect.

SHORT HOLLYWOOD HEADLINES
I'm not sure what is happening, but after we've heard the news of Gerard Butler and Catherine Heigl starring in the film reboot of famous ROMANCING THE STONE, the same adventure is now also moving to NBC where they are making
a TV show out of the story which follows a writer who goes to the jungles of Colombia to find her missing brother. Long awaited premiere of the second season of mega popular TV show THE WALKING DEAD will have a 90 minute opening episode on Sunday, October 16th at AMC. The 12  episodes will be shown within each of the following weeks in 122 countries around the world making it the biggest global TV show ever to be aired almost simultaneously around the planet. It will be translated onto almost 40 languages.

A bunch of celebrities have landed in Serbia, where the shooting of new TV series TITANIC: BLOOD AND STEEL is about to start this week. The international co-production, which I mentioned
earlier this Spring, will depict the design of the ship, how it was built, and the financial compromises which ultimately lead to its untimely demise. Chris Noth (Mr.Big from SEX AND THE CITY) plays financier J.P. Morgan, while Neve Campbell plays a journalist covering the ship's first voyage to New York City. Derek Jacobi will play Lord William Pirrie, chairman of the company which built the Titanic. The cast also includes a number of Italian and Serbian actors, and young Hollywood star Kevin Zegers. The mini series will air next Spring celebrating the 100th year after Titanic's first and last voyage. The huge construction of Titanic has already been built in Serbian city of Kragujevac where the shooting will take place.

  3. Yes, your site is full of yowza. :)

    I think I'd watch that Amy Adams movie, even though it sounds kind of scary.

    Gotta love this site.

  5. Weird about ROMANCING THE STONE. I rewatched the original recently... it gave me a chuckle of nostalgia.

    I'm looking forward to THE WALKING DEAD

  6. Oooh Titanic and financial decisions leading to many deaths. I wonder how this show will turn out (not plot wise, quality wise).

    ReplyDelete
  7. Lots of good stuff. Question for you: do you plan to do a 'what's on tv this fall' both new and old series?

  9. Titanic sounds interesting and all those celebs running around, how fun! Say hello to Kevin for me ;D

  10. I actually red the Walking Dead comic but I stopped eventually.

    Freaked me out too much but the story is excellent.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I can't wait for Walking Dead season 2, though their decision to split the series in 2 is a little annoying. Still, a 90 minute epic premiere will make up for it :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I can't believe they are remaking the orphanage, completely pointless.

    But the news of The Walking Dead is excellent. I have set an iCal event

    @Mary
    thank you for loving the site :)

    @Lyndy
    such films reminds us of lovely 80's when movies were light, fun and entertaining unlike the darkness that surrounds today's cinema :(

    don't worry, sister, it will be of great quality since the producers are great and it is being made by Italian television and they always have high class projects when it comes to historical shows

    @Damon
    glad you liked it

    @Clarissa
    I already did a huge spotlight on the new shows this Fall, you can find it here:

    oh, sister, I thought I was the only one who thought the wife in THE WALKING DEAD was seriously annoying and deserving of a kick in the ass :) I know they won't turn her into a zombie, but we can always dream :) I must admit I'm not a fan of the characters in the show, they are quite weak and unappealing when you come to think about it. The only strong one is the sheriff himself.

    @Ella
    I'll say hello to Kevin and take him out for a drink if I met him :))

  16. @DWei
    it is a freaky show :)

    @Jamie
    yes, I don't get the split of the show till February either? What's that about?

    @Scott
    I've no idea what iCal is :) but I'm excited about THE WALKING DEAD too, it's the only show which is broadcast freshly here as well, we have to watch all others on the Internet :(( or some on HBO Central Europe, but my cable operator doesn't offer that channel :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. As I have said in AM...jezz another remake? please stop it!

    Wow...how cool is that,Serbia in the spotlight ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I guess you'll never gonna watch the always adorable Amy Adams in that Orphanage movie. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Novia
    since we've opened some new studios and lowered taxes on foreign productions, people are shooting films here like crazy :) And, beside that, Serbia is one of the countries with the longest history in making films (we have the oldest depots of ancient movies in the world) so we also have lots of experts and people who know the job, and foreign producers like that

    @Jaccsy
    I might not :)unless someone holds my hand :)

  20. Thanksfor the update. This is Munir over here at Focus.

  21. There's a lot of movie news out of Serbia lately. TITANIC: BLOOD AND STEEL sounds interesting... so glad it's about history and not vampires.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Aw, I like Amy, and THE ORPHANAGE sounds awesome possum

    ReplyDelete
  23. "English language version of Spanish horror" hmm not so sure im interested heheheh

    ReplyDelete
  24. More TV versions?? Maybe the Titanic set will become a Serbian tourist attraction if the show is a big hit.

    be welcome, Munir

    @Doralynn
    oh, hush, sister, Hollywood might hear you and really put vampires on Titanic :) Not that I'd mind watching Leo De Caprio eaten by vampires :P

    @Kelley
    we all like Amy :)

  26. @Coneforce
    ah, what can you do ...

    @Arlee
    it could, but I'm not sure they're building the whole ship or just a deck or something. But we could always use more tourists :) Most tourists come here for nightlife and for our Roman sites, since Serbia was the birthplace of more than 16 Roman emperors.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Lots of great news. A romancing the stone tv show, huh? Could be interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  28. it could be, if done right, we could use an adventure show on TV!

  29. I so love Amy in that outfit, I think it was on Marie Claire magazine that I subscribed to at the time. I'm not gonna watch the movie though, no interest in such a scary movie, plus why remake something that's just been released, it's just silly.

    Dezzy, I know I'm old enough to be Kevin's um, older sister, but when I saw him in Jane Austen Book Club, I was like YOWZA!! That guy is beautifuuul! :D

    ReplyDelete
  30. yep, I've been using and abusing her pics from MARIE CLAIRE photo shoot in my posts a lot :) It was such an amazing photo shoot. There's also one with her in a red dress, amazing as well.
    Kevin IS a rather nice thing to see :)

  31. I just noticed i haven't been leaving you much comments, sorry about that. And as i said before at AM, i'm not sure what to say to the Orphanage remake...it just seems so pointless and desperate to me

    ReplyDelete
  32. What's AM?
    Yep, most remakes seem pointless ... we deserve more originality!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wait! Amy Adams as Lois Lane? How the hell did I miss that?

    ReplyDelete
  34. how the hell did you miss that? :)
    It was a piece of news I reported almost ecstatically this spring :)

GIVE SOME LOVE TO YOUR DEZZY :)
