"THE WORDS" CLIP WITH BRADLEY COOPER, OLIVIA WILDE, JEREMY IRONS! MARK STRONG IN US "LOW WINTER SUN" REMAKE! JAMES FRANCO & JASON STATHAM IN "HOMEFRONT"! "PROMETHEUS" SEQUEL! BRENDAN FRASER IN "SPLIT DECISION"

 According to "Digital Spy" Mark Strong, whom we've seen earlier this year in sf blockbuster JOHN CARTER, will reprise his role in the US remake of LOW
WINTER SUN British mini series. Set this time over at AMC, the story will again see him playing a cop whose life is turned upside down when he helps to kill a corrupt fellow police officer. The new show will transpose the original's story of police corruption from Edinburgh to Detroit! Crime will be seen in SPLIT DECISION too, in which Brendan Fraser will play a father struggling to protect his children from a pair of murderous brothers after he witnesses a killing. Dominic Purcell will play one of the brothers.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
After we've heard yesterday that THE HOBBIT will get third part as well, Ridley Scott has announced today that his sf hit PROMETHEUS will get a sequel in three years time. The search for a writer is currently on, and Michael Fassbender will return in the sequel. Meanwhile, "Variety" reports that James Franco has joined Jason Statham in HOMEFRONT, in which the story, written by Sylvester Stallone, centres on Phil Broker (Jason Statham), a former DEA agent who moves his family to a quiet town to escape his past. However, he discovers the town is overrun by a dangerous meth distributor named Gator (James Franco).
THE WORDS TRAILER
Your video for today is the second trailer (not as good as the magnificent first was) for interesting dramaTHE WORDS which opens up in cinemas this September. The story of the movie revolves around an aspiring writer (played by Bradley Cooper) who claims another man's long lost work as his own only to find there are steep consequences when ambition is valued above life's most fundamental, impassioned three words. The other man is played by Jeremy Irons, but there are other famous faces in the cast too: Olivia Wilde, Zoe Saldana, John Hannah, Ben Barnes and Dennis Quaid.

  1. Glad to see Mark Strong keep getting roles. Oh, and The Words looks good as I generally like stories about writers. I'm not as fond of Bradley as most girls do though.

    Btw Dezzy, I have a review of Mirror Mirror over at FC. I ended up enjoying that one quite a bit.

    1. glad you liked Tarsem's film :)
      Mark Strong had two really dashing roles this year in JOHN CARTER and in BLACK GOLD. Great in both

  2. Wonder if "The Words" was filmed while Bradley and Zoe were dating, during the breakup, or somewhere in between?

  3. I hope the sequel will resolve some of those hangers and questions. I also would've enjoyed Prometheus much more if I had known there was going to be a sequel.

  4. That is an interesting roll for Brendan. I've only ever seen him in comedies.

  5. PLFKI know a lot of people aren't fond of Cooper but this film has a good cast and the script sounds interesting. I'd give this a chance.

    I haven't seen the first Prometheus movie, but it looks like people are really excited about this sequal. I don't really remember when it came out. I;M/W I'm so out of touch.

    my computer is acting up again.

  8. Yay!! A Prometheus sequel. And hot Michael is returning. Hell to the yeah!

    I love Mark Strong and this sounds like a very intriguing crime drama.

    I find it funny that Cooper is always playing a slacker/smarmy/easy-way-out character. He looks like he would be selling used junk cars to nuns. ;)

  9. I enjoyed "Prometheus" despite it being short on plot and a mite slow at times. I like the idea of new writers.

    As for "John Carpenter," it was okay, but I admit I was disappointed.

  11. I love me some Jason Statham! Yummy! Makes me want to watch Snatch again.

    The Words looks intriguing but you're right, this trailer didn't seem to capture the storyline like the first one did. How come people never seem to think of consequences?
