SEXY "DA VINCI'S DEMONS" TRAILER! 80'S MUSICAL "WALKING ON SUNSHINE" WITH GEMMA ARTERTON & KYLIE MINOGUE! IAN MCKELLEN & DEREK JACOBI AS GAY COUPLE IN "VICIOUS" SITCOM! OLIVIA WILDE, JASON SUDEIKIS ARE "RELANXIOUS"!

Since I know you all like cheerful musicals here's a nice piece of info: Gemma Arterton (the velvety voiced princess Tamina from PRINCE OF PERSIA and CLASH OF THE TITANS) and pop star Kylie Minogue are set to star in new movie musical WALKING ON SUNSHINE. Using the nostalgia for the 80's music, which has surrounded us all since we're being bombarded by truly horrid music and pop stars of the present decade, the film, which will have tones of 80's catchy tunes, will take place in present-day Spain in a beautiful coastal village. Amanda is getting married to the gorgeous Raf and has invited her sister, Taylor, to the wedding. Unbeknownst to Amanda, however, Raf is Taylor's ex-holiday flame and the love of her life.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
The Hollywood Reporter writes about new romantic comedy RELANXIOUS which will see real life couple Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis starring in a story about the anxiety-ridden Barrett,
who takes up with an agoraphobic, played by Sudeikis. The two engage in a courtship over the phone, discussing the dates they would go on if their phobias didn't stand in the way. As the fantasies develop, the two must decide if they can put aside their fears in order to find real-life romance. How charming. Speaking of charming, listen to this: two acting legends, British thespians Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi are set to star in ITV sitcom VICIOUS in which they will play a gay couple :) The show, which is created by WILL AND GRACE producers, will revolve around friends that bicker, argue and are delightfully vicious to each other. According to "THR" McKellen and Jacobi are set to play long-time couple Freddie and Stuart who have lived together in a small London apartment for nearly 50 years. A former actor and an ex-barman, their lives now consist mainly of reading, walking their dog and bickering.

DA VINCI'S DEMONS TEASER
And here's something we've been waiting for a long time - the first teaser trailer for Starz new epic show DA VINCI'S DEMONS which should start airing some time next year. Starring Tom Riley as the title character, the new show is a historical fantasy, following the ‘untold’ story of the world’s greatest genius during his turbulent youth in Renaissance Florence. Brilliant and passionate, the twenty-five year old Leonardo Da Vinci is an artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist. As a free thinker, with intellect and talents that are almost
superhuman, he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time. He begins to not only see the future, but invent it. The series also stars gorgeous Laura Haddock who plays the celebrated beauty with obscure motives, Lucrezia Donati, dashing Elliot Cowan who plays the shrewd de factor ruler of Florence, Lorenzo Medici, Lara Pulver who plays his wife Clarice Orsini and brilliant Blake Ritson (he was amazing as the king in “World Without End”) as Pope Sixtus’ ruthless bastard son, Count Riari!

    1. It was quite difficult deciding whose scantily clad pic to use, Kylie's or Gemma's, but since Gemma has often paraded here naked, I felt Kylie deserves a chance too :)
      I liked DA VINCI'S DEMONS teaser too, very spicy and epic.

  3. I swear, they will turn anything into a musical these days. I'll pass I think. I don't care who is involved. (OK, MAYBE, there might be a couple of people that might get me to a musical, but not them...)

    I love Olivia and Jason together - I hope they are just as goon on screen. And Ian McKellen? He's just awesome. Count me in.

    Demons looks pretty good. I will have to check it out!! (sorry I've been so scarce lately...busy time of year!!)

    1. the 80's music is what is going to get me to watch it :) Especially if there's ABBA or Cyndi Lauper in it :)

      I love them too, they are both so damn gorgeous, imagine their babies!

  4. Explain to me how Jason Sudeikis constantly lands these amazing hot babes? I fail to see his appeal.

  6. Looking forward to Ian and Derek's show. What a great pair of brilliant actors. And I'm so excited for Gemma's new project.

    And shocklingly, I am looking forward to Olivia and Jason's new film. It sounds amazingly eccentric.

  8. Da Vinci's demons looks pretty exciting, though it doesn't look into his mind or his brilliance. I hope that they don't leave that out.

    1. it's only a teaser, and a very quick one, I would expect more in a regular trailer :)

  9. Demons was basically the same as the Da Vinci code. Or the other way around, depending on which you read first.

    1. I see absolutely no resemblance whatsoever, Demian

  10. Vicious looks delightful. I loved Will and Grace darling, Jack was so like my fabulous son that I adored him.

    DaVinci does look good and wasn't he the darling of his time. The twist of him inventing the future should throw an interesting wrench into reality. DaVinci was a lovely gay man as well :)

    1. I loved WILL AND GRACE only for Karen and her maid Rozie :) They had such lovely relationship :) I didn't like the gay part of the show because they were painting a very cliché image of the gay community and were thus promoting prejudices which are already deeply rooted in the society :(

  11. Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi as a couple?? I'm curious to check out the pilot though I'm unlikely to see it as I've got no cable!
