EWAN MCGREGOR & KATE HUDSON IN "BORN TO BE KING"! MICHAEL DOUGLAS & DIANE KEATON IN "AND SO IT GOES"! HAILEE STEINFELD & GUY PEARCE IN "HATESHIP, FRIENDSHIP"! "A ROYAL AFFAIR" TRAILER WITH MADS MIKKELSEN & ALICIA VIKANDER

It seems we shall have a romantic comedy day today at HOLLYWOOD SPY. First, "The Hollywood Reporter" writes about Ewan McGregor and Kate Hudson negotiating to take the lead roles in mistaken identity romantic flick BORN TO BE KING. The story revolves around a film extra (McGregor) who has an uncanny resemblance to a movie star and a Hollywood starlet (Hudson) who’s at war with her co-star and begins to fall for the extra. Meanwhile Ewan's fantasy adventure JACK THE GIANT KILLER has been renamed to JACK THE GIANT SLAYER and will hit cinemas next March, and he is currently shooting AUGUST OSAGE COUNTY with Meryl Streep in which he plays Julia Robert's cheating husband. His powerful drama THE IMPOSSIBLE about the infamous tsunami in Asia will hit cinemas soon and might bring him some awards nominations.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Well, this certainly is the oddest pairing ever, but "The Hollywood Reporter" says that Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton will play two eccentrics who refuse the idea of love until they are hopelessly, inextricably mired in
it in the romantic comedy AND SO IT GOES by always brilliant P.J. Hogan (MURIEL'S WEDDING, MENTAL). Douglas will play a self centered and eccentric realtor who couldn’t care less about anyone else, but when his estranged son suddenly drops off a granddaughter he never knew, his life is turned upside down. Now, with the help of his determined and loveable neighbor, Leah (Keaton), he stubbornly learns to care, and unexpectedly, to fall in love again. We shall also see some romance in HATESHIP, FRIENDSHIP which follows a nanny (Kristen Wiig) hired to care for a rather wild teenage girl (Hailee Steinfeld). Using email, the girl orchestrates a romance between the nanny and the father (Guy Pearce), a recovering addict living in a different town. Also in the mix is the girl’s grandfather (Nick Nolte), who blames Pearce for the death of his daughter.

A ROYAL AFFAIR TRAILER
And to end the day with romance, here's a trailer for a historical romance: Danish film A ROYAL AFFAIR will hit US cinemas
November 9th, starring some of the faces you know - Mads Mikkelsen and Alicia Vikander. Denmark's official submission for the Foreign Language Film category of the 85th Academy Awards follows the story of a young queen from the 18th century, who is married to mentally ill King Christian VII of Denmark, falls secretly in love with her physician - and together they start a revolution that changes a nation forever. Rich with luxurious and sumptuous sets, lavish costumes, and steadfast acting, the movie describes some true historical events in a very dynamic way. Mikkel Følsgaard who appears in the film as Christian VII won Silver Bear for best actor at this year's Berlin Film Festival!

  2. I loved the trailer for A Royal Affair. Certainly my kind of story. :)

    And what a fun photo of Mr. McGregor. You know, he might make a good Bond boy. I'll put him on the list. :PP

    1. reminds me of Catherine the Great, who also had the unfortunate destiny to be married to a looney king :)
      That's my new fave photo session of his :) I think it's from GQ, love when he has hair like that. He'd finally make this little spy watch the British spy film :)

    2. Were there any kings who weren't looney? That's what they got for swimming in the shallow end of the gene pool. :P

    3. Well, Serbian kings for mostly nice people :) King Petar I lead the whole country (literally) down to Greece during WW1 when the enemy was invading from North and he bravely lead them all down to safety, like the whole country and our army on foot in great poverty, hunger, disease... I don't know why nobody made a film about it...

  3. McGregor looks really young in that photo. I always imagined him to be a lot older.

  4. Um, yeah. Anytime you want to start the post off with Ewan, you have my attention. And the only think I don't like about Ewan's movie is Kate - she kind of grates on my nerves. Maybe I just have a problem. I don't know.

    You know...there isn't much that I don't love about today...I am excited for all of it!!

    1. Kate is a bit weird, can't say I don't like her, but I don't LIKE her either LOL Kinda like her mom Goldie. Nothing special.
      Glad to see you excited :)

  5. Can't wait for all of Ewan's projects. I think he is just brilliant. Guy Pearce is another actor I just love.

    I'm not big on Kate, either. She's hit or miss. But I do love Goldie. She's so funny to me and I adore her old comedies like Private Benjamin.

  9. Ewan mcgregor has too much of a nice guy feel to play a motorcycle guy for me.

    1. ahah... JDC, Ewan is famous for his love for motorcycles, he even travelled half the world on his motorbike with his best friend and they even shot a documentary series on it which had high ratings on TV. During their motorcycle travel through Asia he even came upon a little Mongolian orphan in the middle of the road, which he later on adopted and she is now a member of his family.
