TRAILER FOR CHARLIZE THERON'S & PATRICK WILSON'S "YOUNG ADULT"! DOMINC PURCELL IS DEVIL'S RIGHT HAND IN "PARADISE LOST"! NEW "ZORRO" FILM! KIRSTEY ALLEY & RHEA PERLMAN ARE "THE MANZANIS"

 According to "Deadline" Sony Pictures is preparing to do a movie adaptation of ZORRO, not the legend but the novel by famous Isabel Allende. The swashbuckling adventure story
will reveal the history behind the legendary masked man, from being born as a son of an aristocratic Spanish military man turned landowner and a Shoshone female warrior, and growing up as a witness of the brutal injustices dealt to Native Americans by European settlers, to being a student in Napoleonic Spain, and fighting pirates at the sea, and finally to his return to America to reclaim the hacienda where he was raised and to seek justice for all who cannot fight for it themselves.The film should not be mixed up with ZORRO REBORN, which I mentioned earlier this year, and which will be an apocalyptic sf movie.

Now this sounds like a  hilarious and super charming match: Rhea Perlman and Kirstey Alley will reunite after CHEERS again in
ABC's new sitcom THE MANZANIS, in which Alley will play the head of an Italian American household who moves into the New Jersey suburbs and instantly begins to clash with her uptight neighbors, while Perlman will play her live-in mother-in-law Camille Manzani. The lastest one to join Alex Proyas' adaptation of Milton's epic PARADISE LOST about the war between Lucifer and archangel Michael is Dominic Purcell who will portray Jeehamel, an angel who becomes devil's right-hand. As you know Bradley Cooper is Lucifer, Ben Walker is Michael, and the cast also includes Djimon Hounsou (angel of death), Camilla Belle (Eve), Casey Affleck, Callan McAuliffe...

Here's a trailer which appeared last week, but I didn't have time to post it. It's for Charlize Theron's new drama YOUNG ADULT which opens up
in cinemas this December and also has extremely talented Patrick Wilson in the cast. In the film, Academy Award winner Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn't quite gotten over high school, either.

  1. Too much Zorro? I'm tired of the movies around Zorro. They really have to surprise me. Like The Three Musketeers

  3. Why Charlize Theron isn't an even bigger star is beyond me....
    She's beautiful!

  4. Zorro sounds like it's trying to get onto the Pirate bandwagon if you ask me.

    Oh, and a hoodie is an article of clothing. It's like a sweatshirt with a hood. :P

  5. Paradise Lost is going to be Epic, and I can't wait for it. Having Bradley Cooper as Lucifer is going to be a treat too.

  6. Aaah Patrick and Charlize, two of my favorite stars. That being said, OMG I have got to see this movie!!! Charlize is so wicked as the bad girl.

    Isabelle Allende's book is extraordinary and I am looking forward to the film. The sf Zorro, not so much, though I will give it a chance.

    Dominic Purcell as a bad angel...what a wicked fantasy. ;)

  7. Dominic Purcell deserves more limelight, he has a good presence (Blade 3, Lost....)

  8. The sad thing is, the movie is a masterpiece. It's funny and in many ways, true. I might watch it.

  9. Hopefully they do something interesting with zorro instead of just another cash in on a brand name type thing, who knows.

    the reason is that she never ever had a single hit film. She is pretty and charismatic and not a bad actress, but she doesn't have a single well known film, beside MONSTER.

    @DWei
    yep, I figured that's what a hoodie is :)

    @Vics
    oh, thanks darling, you're the first one to notice it and it means a lot to me :) I think it adds a certain Autumnish charm, doesn't it? And I tried to keep it warm and sunny, not gloomy and rainy like Fall usually is

    it will be very interesting to watch him as Lucifer, hope he won't be funny though :)

    @Melsy
    I haven't read ZORRO, but I did read a number of Allende's book (THE HOUSE OF SPIRITS being my favourite, both the book and the film), and she is a nice writer

    @Lurk
    he really is a nice actor especially for action films

  12. @Clarissa
    yep, I think they wanted to make it appealing to the audience

    @Pat
    we shall keep our fingers crossed :)

  13. The minds behind Young Adult suggest it'll be a good film. Will wait and see. I like Theron though.
