MATT BOMER JOINS WILL SMITH, COLLIN FARRELL IN "WINTER'S TALE"! CW'S "AMAZON" WONDER WOMAN SHOW AND "COPELAND PREP"! WEIRD TRAILER FOR "THE DETAILS" WITH TOBY MAGUIRE & ELIZABETH BANKS

A movie project we've mentioned before a number of times is getting new cast members: according to "Deadline" Matt Bomer and ROBIN HOOD's Lucy Griffiths have joined fantasy story WINTER'S TALE directorial debut of Akiva Goldsman which already has Will Smith, Russell Crowe, Colin Farrell and William Hurt in the cast. It's a very complex period fantasy thriller based on a novel by Mark Helprin which brings a sweeping drama about reincarnation, set in the early 20th century and focusing on a thief (Farrell) on the run who, when breaking into a wealthy man’s home, strikes up a relationship with the man’s terminally ill daughter (DOWNTON ABBEY's Jessica Findlay). He later learns that he possesses the gift of reincarnation, and becomes determined to save her life.  A flying horse and a time-shift 100 years are elements which also appear in this supernatural story. Russel Crowe is set to play a ruthless criminal, while Will Smith will play a judge, Matt Bomer and Lucy Griffits will play the parents of the thief.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
 For your daily dose of television news, here are two pieces of info on CW's upcoming projects. First of all, "Deadline" reports that horrid director Catherine Hardwicke who gave the world cinematic
atrocities such as TWILIGHT and RED RIDING HOOD will team with GOSSIP GIRL producers on COPELAND PREP, a show which takes place at a secondary school where the students are being transformed into monster. CW is also developing Wonder Woman pilot which will be titled AMAZON because it will be an origin tale for the DC Comics heroine reviving the legend of Diana of Themyscira. This could mean an epic series, since Diana was the daughter of Queen Hippolyta, the first child born on Paradise Island in the three thousand year history that the immortal Amazons lived there. Six members of the Greek Pantheon
gave the baby special gifts and powers. Demeter, great strength; Athena, wisdom and courage; Artemis, a hunter's heart and a communion with animals; Aphrodite, beauty and a loving heart; Hestia, sisterhood with fire; Hermes, speed and the power of flight. 

THE DETAILS TRAILER
Now here's something overly strange and uber weird, even after watching the trailer I'm not really sure what THE DETAILS film is really about. Check it out yourself. Opening in cinemas November
 2nd the film will see Tobey Maguire and Elizabeth Banks playing a struggling married couple who, already struggling with issues like infidelity and whether they should stay married, see their lives further complicated by ravenous raccoons burrowing under the sod in their
 back yard. A disagreement over how to dispatch the pests creates a chain reaction of mishaps. But the trailer doesn't really speak of an adorable comedy with delightful raccoons, but something way too weird to be described. The cast also includes Laura Linney, Ray Liotta and Kerry Washington.

  2. Well, hmmm, The Details looks like somebody's nervous breakdown on film. I think I'm much more interested in the first project with Colin Ferrell, even though that one sounds kind of convoluted.

    1. yep, WINTER'S TALE should be a rather intriguing project, although I can't say I love the cast so far, Crowe, Smith and that ABBEY wench - not my cup of tea

  3. I think grand pianos should fall on ALL cheating, cat-killing liars. Looks like a good movie to me!

    Seriously, great to see Tobey Maguire getting back to some serious films after all those years of Spiderman fluff. And I LOVE Laura Linney in anything.

  4. Winter's Tale sounds very interesting. I'm a fan of Will Smith and Russell Crowe and love the spin of the bad guy falling in love.

    The trailer for The Details needs a bit more, um, details. Just a bizarre trailer. You're right, I can't figure out what exactly this movie is about. I think Luanne is correct though. It seems he has a breakdown of sorts. Or, maybe he's already bonkers and that's why all those raccoons dug up his yard and infested his house? I don't know...crazy!

  7. Let's get the bad out of the way first. To me Details looks like trash disguised as quirky and hip. I didn't like the look of it at all. Cheating, accidentally killing a neighbors cat-not funny and not cool.

    Thank you for the picture of Matt darling. He looks lovely when wet. Winter's Tale does look like a good story and there's enough beefcake in there to keep me glued to the screen. It looks like Crowe is back to working regularly again. I hope he can keep his horrid personality under control long enough not to cost the producers money.

    1. oh, I hate it when they try to push stupid as something hip and quirky.

      I had trouble choosing Matt's pic, couldn't decide between the two, but I know my ladies loved him in MAGIC MIKE so I've chosen that one :) Did you know that he has kids with his boyfriend?
      I've just read in today's papers, that Russell refuses to bathe and shower for days (that also goes for Brad Pitt and Leo de Caprio)

  8. WINTER'S TALE intrigues me. I like that kind of story.

    And I like the idea of the Wonder Woman story going back to its original roots. Sounds great.

  10. So Amazon is pretty much Wonder Woman and Friends right?

    Yeah... Can't say I really cared for the DC Universe too much except for Batman. Let me know if they make another Batman series.

  13. Matt Bomer in anything is fine with me, he is quite a talented actor and no one quite looks as hot as he does.

  15. Hey, Dezzy! Yeah, that Matt Bomer. He's pretty hot. LOL! And I just love Elizabeth Banks. Have to check that movie out. And ooo!!! LOVE Wonder Woman. I saw where Marvell has decided to do Superman + Wonder Woman, and I was like, "When I was a kid, I thought they WERE a couple..." :D <3

    1. Hey, Leigh! I like Banks too, both as an actress and on the red carpet, she's always lovely.

  16. I started reading Winter's Tale when I heard about the movie. Fantastic read! As for the movie - Colin Farrell already had me on board, but now with Bomer also cast? I don't think I can handle all that hotness in one movie!
