PAUL WALKER IN "SKYSCRAPER"! ANNETTE BENING & ROBIN WILLIAMS IN "THE LOOK OF LOVE"! JAVIER BARDEM OR BRAD PITT IN RIDLEY SCOTT'S "THE COUNSELOR"? EMMA THOMPSON IS THE QUEEN IN "WALKING THE DOGS"! NEW "GAME OF THRONES" TRAILER

One of the news I forgot to mention last week is that Hollywood charmer Paul Walker will star in SKYSCRAPER, in which the story follows a rich estate
developer who wants to build the biggest building in Chicago, but when his skyscraper starts to fall down, Paul Walker appears with his building crew to save the city from devastation in the last minute. Another flick with interesting script is THE LOOK OF LOVE in which Annette Bening will play a woman who falls for a man (to be played by Ed Harris) who is unusually similar to her late husband. It is interesting that beloved comedian Robin Williams will also have a role in this movie. Bening's role was previously meant for Diane Keaton.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
As "DailyMail" reports, the latest addition to the cast of Ralph Fiennes THE INVISIBLE WOMAN is British star Tom Hollander (ENIGMA, GOSSFORD PARK, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN) who
will portray novelist Wilkie Collins in the film about Charles Dickens’s affair with under-aged Nelly Ternan. Beside directing, Ralph Fiennes also takes the lead role of Dickens, Felicity Jones will play Nelly, and Kristin Scott Thomas is Dickens’s wife, Catherine. You remember that last week I informed you that Michael Fassbender has taken the lead role in Ridley Scott's THE COUNSELOR as a respected lawyer who thinks he can dip a toe in to the drug business without getting sucked down. It is a bad decision and he tries his best to survive it and get out of a desperate situation. "Deadline" now reports that Javier Bardem, Jeremy Renner and even Brad Pitt are in the run for the villain role in the film.

I have no trailers for you today, but I do have some movie pictures: you can check out the first photos of Emma Thompson as Queen Elizabeth II in WALKING THE DOGS, a British TV drama which will air later this year and will depict the unusual episode at the British
court when a man called Michael Fagan broke into the palace undetected and spent around ten minutes talking to the Queen in her bedroom before help arrived. Eddie Marsan (WAR HORSE, THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ALICE CREED) is playing Michael Fagan while
beloved BEING HUMAN star Russell Tovey will play a footman who wasn't there to stop the intruder since he was out walking the Queen’s Corgi’s instead of guarding queen's bedroom.

  4. So it's a skyscraper that is going to wreck the city. Hmmm A Godzilla building, original to say the least. I guess if a cow can burn down Chicago them a building by Paul Walker can flatten it..hahaha

  7. I do want to see Walking The Dogs for Emma Thompson's acting and it might be an interesting tale to have told. I don't know what they're going to do with Game of Thrones in the long term because Martin still hasn't written the last book.

    1. how many parts are there? They're shooting one per season, and who knows if the show will be continued for six or seven years?

    1. it should be fun, hope that too much new characters won't confuse all of us who haven't read the book, since the first season was a bit confusing in that way.

  9. Love the new trailer for Game of Thrones! And Emma looks good as QE2. It sounds like an intersting little film. And of course, I will watch Paul's film, but probably on DVD. :)

  15. I'd like to see Jeremy Renner play a really bad guy. The glimpse of him being bad in THE TOWN was good, even for that movie, but he can do it.

    1. I've always thought he is only suited for villain roles, there's something evil about him. Never liked him. Too arrogant.

  16. Oh I like the idea of Emma Thompson as Queen Elizabeth, I think she'd do a good job too.
