CW'S "BEAUTY AND THE BEAST" TRAILER WITH KRISTIN KREUK & JAY RYAN! CATE BLANCHETT IN "CAROL"! NEW VIKING EPIC "HAMMER OF THE GODS" WITH CHARLIE BEWLEY!

 You know how much HOLLYWOOD SPY adores the extremely talented Australian thespian and the best living actress Cate Blanchett and now it seems she finally has a new project: "Screen Daily" reports that Blanchett and Mia Wasikowska will take the lead roles in CAROL, which will be a movie adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's bestseller THE PRICE OF SALT. To start shooting next February in London, the story of the movie follows the burgeoning relationship between two very different women in 1950s New York. One, a girl in her twenties works in a department store and dreams of a more fulfilling life, and the other is a wife trapped in a loveless, moneyed marriage. The heartbreaking story will be directed by John Crowley (IS ANYBODY THERE).

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Here's another upcoming epic project: currently shooting in London and in Wales, we have HAMMER OF THE GODS. Vertigo Films production is set Set in Viking Britain in 871 AD, and according
to "The Screen Daily" the story of the film is described as “a visceral, intense tale set in a world whose only language is violence”. The film will follow a young Viking warrior, Steinar (played by TWILIGHT's blond hunk Charlie Bewley), sent by his father the King on a quest to find his estranged brother. Stylish and barbaric film will also have Ivan Kaye ("Dark Shadows") and James Cosmo ("Braveheart", "Game Of Thrones") in the cast.

 BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
And here's a trailer for CW's Fall series BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Detective Catherine Chandler is a smart, no-nonsense homicide detective. Several years earlier, Catherine witnessed the murder of her
mother at the hands of two gunmen. Catherine would have been killed too, but someone - or something - saved her. No one has ever believed her, but she knows it wasn't an animal that attacked the assassins...it was human. Years have passed, and Catherine is a strong, confident, capable police officer. While investigating a murder, Catherine discovers a clue that leads her to a handsome doctor named Vincent Keller, who was reportedly killed by enemy fire while serving in Afghanistan in 2002. Catherine learns that Vincent is actually still alive and that it was he who saved her many years before. For mysterious reasons that have forced
 him to live outside of traditional society, Vincent has been in hiding for the past 10 years to guard his secret - when he is enraged, he becomes a terrifying beast, unable to control his super-strength and heightened senses. Catherine agrees to protect his identity in return for any insight he may have into her mother's murder. Thus begins a complex relationship between Catherine and Vincent, who are powerfully drawn to each other yet understand that their connection is extremely dangerous for both of them. The series stars Kristin Kreuk (Smallville) as Catherine, Jay Ryan (Terra Nova) as Vincent, Max Brown (The Tudors) as Evan.

  1. Beauty and the Beast looks like its targeted towards the twilight fans. It's the "Charming monster/beast/vampire/werewolf saves girl" story LOL, I'll have to pass on that one.

    2. Have no idea why there's such large gaps between the words. Must have messed something up.

  2. Dezzy - I love Cate B.

    As for Beauty and the Beast... I'm not sure. Might be too cheesy for me tastes.

    Happy Sunday!

  3. Funny how in the original show, Vincent was a beast all the time and this guy gets to live as handsome rich man by day and only becomes "beast" when he's mad. And not even a particularly vile looking beast either, just some eye changes, fangs and bit more facial hair. Ah well, the Twilight crowd indeed. :)

    I love, love Cate and this new movie sounds quite intriguing, though I do wish her co-star was someone other than Mia.

  4. I'm not convinced at all by Beauty and the Beast, I really feel like watching Smallville :S And come on, she played Snow White already, why does she have to be "Belle" too? Again, there are many unknown talented actresses who want to be famous so... ^^
    Yet the face of the beast seems really creepy!

  6. Aw, they've turned the Beast from Beauty and the Beast into a Hulk thing where he only turns beastly when he is enraged. I'm disappointed. What I liked about the 80s show was that the Beast was always--in his mind--ugly, but his actions showed how truly beautiful he was.

    1. I think the general reaction on B AND THE B is disappointment, but I don't think it will influence it becoming popular since CW is mostly watched by teen girls.

    2. just goes to show I'm not a teen anymore...sigh ;)

  7. I'm a little disappointed by the beast as well...surely he should be beastly all the time

  8. I think Beauty and the Beast sounds great! Definitely reminds me of the Incredible Hulk.

  9. Hmm...The Beast sounds a lot like the Hulk minus the green tights to me but I'm intrigued enough to give it a shot :D (Hope you had a great weekend, Dezzy darling!)

  14. Carol looks interesting. It has Cate in it and I love the look of pieces done in the 1950's, so very stylish. We'll see about the story, sometimes the "woman trapped in loveless marriage" scenario can be rather tired. The Hammer of The God, I'm not sure about it. I am sure about that pic you have up though nom nom nom.

    No way on Beauty and The Beast. Although with graphic violence, it should make loads and loads of money.

    1. I think I will like Blanchett's film too, I will only have a problem with Wasikowska, whom I can't stand.
      Glad I gave you some nom nom for lunch :)

  15. You know the picture of Cate, specifically the 'cut' on the dress. I think it's poorly placed to be honest. I know about 3 different and better places to chuck it on.

  16. B&B looks intense, good trailer. But I hat it when a girl falls in the woods when she is being chased. Can we say cliche? :) You know, just once the big, fast men could just catch her.

    1. LOL I thought you will say for once she should runaway :)

  20. A different take on the Beauty and the Beast ~ I think I am going to watch it ~

    And Charlie looks so fine :-)

  21. I'll give Beauty and the Beast a try. I know, I know, Dezz, you're so surprised =PP But, if it's as drama filled as Vampire Diaries, I'm out! LOL

    By the way Dezz...what happened to your poll? why does it stop?

    1. well, after three years of polls, which means more than 150 of them, I've run out of ideas :( I will post a poll when I get inspiration, but for now I'm a bit creativeless :(

  25. Beauty and the Beast...what a friggin cop out! They lost the essence of what Vincent was all about, a supposedly "monster" that demonstrated that true beauty lies within. But I guess the shallow "Twilight" crowd doesn't grasp that particular concept and it's all about being a monster but you gotta look good SOMETIME...Jeez!

    I'll pass on this Twilight clone crap....

  26. well . what ever you guyz said about beauty and the beast. I m a big ig fan of the show.I love both the starsCAte and Vincent.Love the chemistry of both...:)
