"ALLAN QUATERMAIN" TV SHOW? COLIN FARRELL & DOMINIC COOPER IN "DEAD MAN DOWN"! LIAM NEESON IN "NON STOP" & IN "THIRD PERSON" WITH OLIVIA WILDE & JUDE LAW! GEOFFREY RUSH & JIM STURGESS IN "THE BEST OFFER"

We've mentioned Colin Farrell two days ago with the trailer of TOTAL RECALL, but here he is again: he and Dominic Cooper will star in DEAD MAN
DOWN, action thriller about a woman (Noomi Rapace) who enlists the help of a criminal (Colin Farrell) to get revenge on those who murdered her family. According to "Variety" Dominic Cooper will play Darcy, Colin Farrell's street partner in crime. Meanwhile, Liam Neeson, who is currently playing Zeus in CLASH OF THE TITANS, will star in NON STOP, which, according to "MovieWeb", is set aboard an international flight, and revolves around a weary air marshal (Liam Neeson) who must spring into action to contain a threat while the plane is in the air.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Almost a year ago I've informed you about SMALLVILLE producers doing the futuristic film adaptation of famous ALLAN QUATERMAIN saga with either Sam Worthington or Tom Welling in the lead
role, but now it seems they are moving the project onto the small screens: according to "The Hollywood Reporter" Sonar Entertainment is preparing a $30 million worth TV show which would, in ten episodes, follow the adventurous character from the 1880s who inspired the Indiana Jones franchise. As you remember Allan Quatermain was a brave adventurer dressed in safari clothes who searched for the famous mines of King Solomon. If I remember correctly he was already played by Richard Chamberlaine. Beside MARCO POLO and  DA VINCI'S DEMONS shows on Starz, this would be the third new high profile adventure show broadcast next year.

Speaking of Liam Neeson according to "Vulture" he might appear in the new project of
one of our favourite directors Oscar winning PaulHaggis (CRASH). The complex love drama called THIRD PERSON will focus on three story lines, three love stories, three relationships in three different cities that combine in a very odd way: New York, Paris and Rome. Liam Neeson will be partner of Olivia Wilde, who will play a party reporter from New York. There are also rumours that Jude Law could also join this cast. Speaking of nice casts, "Variety" reports that ultra talented Geoffrey Rush and young Jim Sturgess will play in THE BEST OFFER, a new drama by Oscar winner Giuseppe Tornatore (CINEMA PARADISO, MALENA), which will be set in the world of art auctions in Vienna and the Alps. Famous Ennio Morricone will write the score.

    1. don't you know HOLLYWOOD SPY loves posting pics of stars with animals. It's our second fave option after posting their hot pics :) And when we have the combination of the two, it's perfection like in this one :)

  4. I am all for the Allan Quartermain tv show!!! And at $30 million it should be real good!

    But if it gets too pricey they could do a movie based on his lesser known cousin Pervy Quartermain ... he was a creeper though?

    1. it should, it's almost the budget of GAME OF THRONES :)
      Who is this Pervy, I like the notion of him :)

  7. You had to go and show Farrell again, is that payback on the cat?..hahaha..how rude.

    Quartermain tv show, hmmm that could work. I remember the movies being okay for the time, an updated version would surely peak my interest. Yep Haggis is great, he gave us Due South and of course Walker Texas Ranger, but lets forget the second one.

    1. well, you have a goat there too, cats like to play with goats :)
      I'd forget the first one too, but let us not be picky :PPP

    2. Cat's like to play with goats? Since when? Bah you can't forget the first one, you just have no taste. After The Fountain that can easily be seen..hahaha...I'll never let that one go.

    3. yep, it's clearly obvious from this site that me is a man of no taste :)

  8. Dead Man Down and Allan Quartermain both sound extremely intriguing. Third Person, not if Olivia's in it. You know my thoughts on her. ;)

  12. It's good to know that Tom Welling is still alive after Smallville, I haven't seen him at all. I still laugh every time I see him and my Jared Padalecki in Cheaper By The Dozen. :)

    1. I'm not sure if he will have a career after the show, since nothing happened with the above mentioned sf film, but he is nice and I wouldn't mind seeing him on film :)

      Mmmm, him and Jared... thanks for a wonderful dream :)

    2. Welling will have the superman curse and not get much, seems to happen to all who play him.

    3. it's a sad truth :( Brandon Routh, Dean Caine, Christopher Reeve...

    1. Richard Chamberlaine made him famous in the films from the 80's and Patrick Swayze also played him in some horribly horrid TV films :)

  15. Indeed, the pic of Olivia Wilde is awesome! I don't like her with blond hair, but this one is particularly classy.

  16. I remember the Richard Chamberlain Quatermain movies as a kid. I loved them. I'll try to catch the show.

    That's a wonderful picture of Olivia.

  18. The first thing I said when I read ALLAN QUATERMAIN TV SHOW? was, 'NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!' No joke. I mean, say it ain't so. But then again, the movies co-starring Ms Stone were so bad, you'd think the only way is up.

    Neeson is certainly tall enough to be Olivia Wilde's partner....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. that's when I actually discovered Stone and I knew immediately that she will be a star, and it happened later on. She was my first big discovery :)

      Delete
    2. Now how could you have possibly known that she would be a star if she spent most of her time at my place?

    3. we Elven people have powers, I scried her at your cassa :)

  19. An Allan Quatermain show? Sign me up. No mention of the Sean Connery portrayal in LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN though?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I didn't mention Patrick Swayze's horrid TV films either :)))
      I did love EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN! I love to watch that film whenever it appears on TV

    2. People hate on that movie too much. Was it exceptional? No. But was it fun as hell? You bet.

      Delete
    3. only evil fanboys hate it, people with taste like it :) The ones who loved THE MUMMY, JOHN CARTER, FLASH GORDON, would love EXTRAORDINARY GENTS too, because they know films are made of dreams not of darkness

  20. collin Ferrell just has a look that makes him seem like he would be a jerk. I don't know maybe it is just me and he is probably a nice enough guy.

    1. he sure does look like that, Budd ;)

  21. Olivia Wilde is just plain gorgeous. It's like she was made to be a movie star. I love her in everything. Sad to see House finally go off the air but meh...without Olivia it was starting to suck anyway. I so wanted to see House pull the plug on her though...that would have been a fitting end to that character.

    As for Alan Quartermain...not a fan. I think Indiana Jones took that kind of character to a place where it just shines and these others (even though they predate it) are just not as good. Love Colin Ferrell though. He's so handsome. Man what I wouldn't do to have a boyfriend with the body of a one of these Hollywood hotties. That would entertain me for a year at least...if not more.

    1. she's pretty :) I don't watch HOUSE, but the few episodes I did, I watched for Jesse Spencer :)

      And it's nice having such a hot boyfriend, but I think the only one who can give you real sweet love is some charmingly adorable geek :)

  22. this is gonna out me as a nerd a bit, but didn't Johnathan Frakes (Commander Riker on Star Trek TNG) do an Allan Quatermain movie once upon a time?
