ABC BUYS CHARLIZE THERON'S VIKING TV SHOW "THE CLAN"! TRAILER FOR UNDERWATER EPIC "EMPIRES OF THE DEEP" WITH OLGA KURYLENKO! JAMES CAMERON TO HELM "THE INFORMATIONIST" AFTER AVATAR SEQUELS

Well it seems that beside History Channel's VIKINGS series with Travis Fimmel and Gabriel Byrne, which is currently being shot in Ireland and
  will hit small screens next year, according to "The Hollywood Reporter" we shall enjoy another television epic with Northern warriors. Charlize Theron has just sold her THE CLAN production to ABC. The story of the future show is described as a sweeping drama set in the Highlands of medieval Scotland, where the great clans battle one another - and the Viking invaders. Charlize has already found a man who will direct it, write it and executive produce it - HOTEL RWANDA's Terry George! Beside a number of other television project, Charlize has also produced her award winning dramas YOUNG ADULT and MONSTER. She is currently preparing for her role in MAD MAX FURY ROAD in which she plays a one-armed nasty road warrior Furiosa!
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
One of the biggest news yesterday was that, after he finishes AVATAR sequels (which will take years and years), James Cameron will direct movie adaptation of THE INFOR- MATIONIST. The book by Taylor Stevens centres on Vanessa “Michael” Munroe, a woman born in central Africa who spent her teenage years as a protege of gunners and mercenaries. She reinvents herself as an information dealer for wealthy clients, but when a billionaire hires her to find his daughter who went missing in Africa, Munroe finds herself back in the Dark Continent. You can also check out today, delightful covers for the new EMPIRE magazine featuring some of the characters from THE HOBBIT, my fave are Cate Blanchett's Galadriel and Ian McKellen's Gandalf.
EMPIRES OF THE DEEP CLIP
And here's a long awaited trailer for ambitious Chinese epic shot in English, EMPIRES OF THE DEEP. Directed by Michael French (CATWOMAN'S director Pitof was the original helmer), EMPIRES OF THE DEEP,  the biggest US-Chinese co-production in the history with its budget
reaching $130 million has a cast lead by gorgeous Olga Kurylenko (the role was first meant for Monica Belucci), beside Steve Polites and Jean-Michel Casanova. For thousand of years, legends of beautiful mermaids have enchanted people from all over the globe. Their fascinating and mysterious world has always captured the imagination of humans. In film history, there hasn't been a single movie that has uncovered and explored this mystical world. What secrets lurk beneath the depths? And why do beautiful mermaids seduce human men? EMPIRES OF THE DEEP is the first underwater fantasy film to unveil and answer these questions. Set in a mythical world, the story of this fantasy epic adventure centres on a man who enters a mysterious underwater
 kingdom to rescue his father, and ends up falling for a mermaid. As you can see in the trailer, three years in the making, tense waiting for the end of the production and more than $100 million budget, didn't yield a promising result, but we're willing to give it a try, are you?

  3. Whoa! Empires of the Deep looks incredible. I've always been fascinated by mermen and mermaids. Hmmm I wonder if I could write a tale beneath the waves...

    I'm happy to hear that Charlize has sold her wonderful show to ABC and she's got a fantastic director.

  6. Hey! my friend:
    Galadriel and Gandalf, really?
    I'm depicted: I bought Bard and Thranduil for you...

    Empires of the Deep seems to be a mix between Avatar and LoTR (I've recognized some Orcs, the Moria, and Shelob !)
    Expensive movie ... not sure that it means "quality"...

    1. I meant only on the covers of EMPIRE :) They don't have Bard and Thranduil on the covers :(

      EMPIRES were done by people who actually worked on AVATAR. It is probably a bit too trashy looking.

    2. ok! I'm right for Empire of the deep(deep movie ???!) and I will paint Bard and Thranduil just for you!

    3. That would be lovely, Samwise :)

  7. If it took that long to make Empire, I'm wondering how out of date the graphics might be. I'd give it a shot because it's something different and I want to know the answer to why the Mermaids seduce human men.

    Cameron will never, ever be done with Avatar so I'm feeling sorry for the author of the book for having to wait so long to see his work hit the screen.

    Clan looks promising-I do love me some Scottish men and Charlize is quite the talented woman.

    1. they are very dated, darling, although I'm guessing we shall have to see it in a cinema to make a judgement. I'm afraid the film will be trashed down before it gets to foreign cinemas. But I'm sure it will be successful in China.
      Yep, I think Cameron will be working on AVATARS forever...

  8. I suspect Empires of the Deep is all about SPX. When will they learn the best films are about character?

    1. It probably is, but it will also be about power of love if I got it right :)

  10. the special effects in empires could be much better

  11. Persoanlly I'd like to wait and see what Theron's new Viking project 'The Clan' looks like (or anything with Charlize in it for that matter!)

    Empires of the Deep just looks too silly - battle scenes fought like they're on land but supposed to be under water, naaa - not buyin' it! That young Russian actress looks hot tho...

    1. Blogger also catches them and doesn't publish them, but I still get notifications about them :( I've been getting up to 5 or 6 per day anonimously always with some promo link, so I've decided to allow only Google account comments for a week and it was great, hope they don'treturn :)
