"DA VINCI'S DEMONS" NEW STARZ ADVENTURE! TRAILER FOR "MAGIC CITY" NEW SHOW WITH JEFFREY DEAN MORGAN & OLGA KURYLENKO! LILY COLLINS JOINS JULIANNE MOORE IN "THE ENGLISH TEACHER"! EVA LONGORIA & ANDY GARCIA IN "THE TRUTH"

 The channel which brought us many lovely programmes, SPARTACUS for example, STARZ is planning a super cool new
show. In cooperation with BBC they will produce DA VINCI'S DEMONS, an exciting new adventure series scheduled to shoot next year with 8 episodes. This historical fantasy, will follow the untold story of the world's greatest genius during his raucous youth in Renaissance Florence. Brash and brilliant, the twenty five-year old Leonardo da Vinci is an artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist. As a free thinker, with intellect and talents that are almost superhuman, he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time. He begins to not only see the future, but invent it.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Here's another film which will gather a bunch of forgotten stars in its cast: Andy Garcia, Forest Whitaker and Deborah Unger,
forgotten 90's stars, will join Eva Longoria and Kevin Durand in THE TRUTH, in which, as "Deadline" says, the story centers on Andy Garcia's character, an ex-CIA agent who became a political talk show host after retiring as a spy. He is hired by a whistleblower to help expose her company's hand in a South American village massacre. According to "MovieWeb", the new one to join THE ENGLISH TEACHER is our new Snow White Lily Collins. As you remember, the film has Julianne Moore as a passionate teacher who convinces her former star pupil to put on his unproduced play at the high school. The cast also includes Greg Kinnear and Nathan Lane.

Speaking of STARZ, your today's trailer treat is  the first clip for their lavish new show MAGIC CITY which will premiere in its first season next spring. The story is set in Miami Beach circa 1959, and it follows Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Ike Evans, a luxury
hotel owner who in order to secure his dream begrudgingly gets in bed with mob boss Ben "The Butcher" Diamond (Danny Huston) - all while his former showgirl wife Vera (Olga Kurylenko) remains blissfully unaware. The cast also includes two super gorgeous beings - angelic Jessica Marais, the mindblowing Mord Sith beauty from LEGEND OF THE SEEKER and seductive Steven Strait from 10,000 BC.

    glad you like it

    @Luanne
    I'm also excited about it. STARz gave us amazing SPARTACUS and horrid CAMELOT, but I have faith since they are working with BBC now.

  4. Da Vinci is a for sure. Hope the show's as good as the concept.

    Magic City may be worth at least a shot. We'll see.

  6. Da Vinci does sound interesting, I have a little faith, they are 50/50 after all. Really depends on who all gets involved with it too.

  9. Whoa...Steven is HOT!!! I think my glasses are fogged up as I can hardly see the screen now. LOL I'm so happy to see Jessica back on the screen. She was incredible in LEGEND.

    DaVinci looks incredibly exciting and I can't wait to see it.

    definitely!

    @Melsy
    you haven't seen him in 10,000BC? He played the lead. A rather cute guy. The film was bad, but it is worth watching for the prehistoric visuals, and him naked all the time :)
    Jessica Marais was my goddess alongside Tabby Bethell in SEEKER. I can't believe how gorgeous those two are. Probably the most beautiful woman on Earth.

    glad you like the new poll :) I'm currently struggling with the following one, since I don't have any more ideas. We've had at least a hundred polls so far, and I'm out of material ... Any ideas?

    @Vics
    DA VINCI should rock, unless they go for something dark like that horrid CAMELOT. I think it must be witty and fun show with charismatic stars

    @Debra
    he was gay? Didn't know that. Wow, it would be super cool and super hot to watch a show with gay adventurous hero :)

  20. @Pesos
    glad you think so :)

    @JAmie
    I hope it will have in it a bit of MERLIN and SPARTACUS too

    @Scott
    I do too

    @Lurk and Josh
    I did pay special attention in choosing Eva's pic for you guys :)

  29. If Steven is naked in 10,000 BC then I am going to have to watch it. I avoided it because it looked so darned bad.

    ReplyDelete
  30. he often wears a loin cloth in it, after all it is set in primordial times :)
    The film is worth watching for saber toothed tigers and mammoths and such things.
