JAMES MARSDEN IN "WALK OF SHAME" & "X MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST"! SULLIVAN STAPLETON, RYAN KWANTEN IN "CUT SNAKE"! "THE FISHING FLEET" MOVIE ADAPTATION! 1ST PICS OF LUKE EVANS, ORLANDO BLOOM AND GOBLIN KING FROM "THE HOBBIT"!

 According to "The Hollywood Reporter" one of our favourite movie heartthrobs James Marsden is set to star next to Elizabeth Banks in WALK OF SHAME comedy. The story of the film centres on a high-strung
 news anchor who, after a wild night out, finds herself locked out on the street with no phone, money, ID or car, and embarks on a series of misadventures as she finds her way to the most important job interview of her life. Don't forget that you will soon watch Marsden in THE BUTLER too. In the story about a butler who served American presidents for decades, Marsden will play president John F. Kennedy. There were also rumours this week that the producers want him to appear in the new sequel of X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST since they want to bring back all of the stars who played the superheroes in previous films including Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Marsden as Cyclops alongside Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart as Magneto and Professor X and Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy as their younger versions and Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult in their roles from X MEN FIRST CLASS .

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
According to "The Hollywood Reporter" Ridley Scott's production company has bought the movie adaptation rights on THE FISHING 
FLEET, a bestselling novel by Anne De Courcy. The story of the book is set in late 19th century India at the height of the British Raj and it centres around a young British woman who arrives in the country in search of romance and marriage. Two of our beloved Australian hunks Sullivan Stapleton (who is playing the lead role in 300 epic prequel) and Ryan Kwanten (from TRUE BLOOD) will take the lead roles in Australian thriller CUT SNAKE. As "Deadline" writes the film will be based on a true story which centres around two ex-cons who killed 15 people in 1973 when they torched the Whiskey Au Go Go nightclub in Brisbane. Stapleton will play a man who has just been released from prison and convinces his friend (Kwanten) to pull one last heist with him.

BARD, GOBLIN, LEGOLAS
And to finish this Saturday with a cherry on top of your cake, check out two new pictures from THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY which offer a look into characters we haven't seen so far in
photos: first there's Ian McKellen as Gandalf with the horrible Goblin king played by Barry Humphries (also known as Dame Edna comedian), while the second image offers the first look upon the
glorious Bard the Bowman played by amazing Luke Evans who will became a king and Orlando Bloom as Legolas the Elven archer! There's less that ten days before the premiere of the epic fantasy!

  2. My heart is broken. I can not watch the video.

    Oh well. At least there is James Marsden. I think he is kind of underrated. He should be a HUGE star by now. I mean...its not like he's doing badly or anything....

    Who am I kidding? I can hardly form a sentence right now! But I do think he's great!

    1. I will try to find another video and replace this one :(
      Agreed on Marsden, one of the most underrated ones :(

  3. I'm not that big on films based on comic books but I do like The X-Men films. Should be good, as long as the original cast returns!

    And I'm really looking forward to the Hobbit. It was the first novel I have ever read and I remember saying to myself "this should be made into a movie. I do realize that there was an animated version and I thought it was rather cheesy. Can't wait to see the block buster edition!

  4. I watched the Goblin Chase on Youtube - for some reason it's not playing for me here... It looks really great - all dark and tension-filled!! Just picked up a companion book put out for the movie yesterday to tide me over :)

  5. I just saw a very, very young Orlando in an old episode of Midsomer Murders. He was pretty then too-high cheekbones and those amazing eyes.

    The Butler has potential. Those gents see and are not seen. The things they are privy to and can't discuss can be shocking. Also I know nothing of the tradition of the profession in America and I'm wondering if it's the same as in England.

    The cast in X-Men will have us women drooling on ourselves.

    1. Really? I didn't know he played in anything before LOTR, that's so interesting.
      I reckon they will glamourize BUTLER and probably won't show anything truly eyeopening, and plus that horrid Oprah Winfrey plays his wife :(

  6. Everyone is excited about the Hobbit, but I'm reserving judgement.

    X-men sounds cool! Glad they are doing another.

    1. First reviews say HOBBIT is good but a bit drawn-out as we've expected, and that LES MISERABLES is musical diarrhoea :)

    2. Whaaaaaat?!!? Musical diarrhea!! I will not be put off by such talk! I will still sit through it, even if it is a crapfest. :P

  8. Hey Dez!
    I didn't read and look at your post, because I don't want to see the Goblin King !!!!!
    (I'm painting one yet, but it's not the same, I think! I hope that I will finish it before 12th of December!)

    1. it's a very small picture of Goblin King, so you won't see much of him anyway, Samwise :)

  9. I actually haven't seen an X-men film yet. I have them on my DVR, though.

    Marsden seems to have great things lined up for himself.

  13. LOL The Fishing Fleet...A derogatory Edwardian term for women who couldn't find men in England so their families shoved them off to India with orders to get married or else. Trust me this poor girl wasn't going there willingly in search of romance. Should be a great movie, though as I love that time period.

    Can't wait for the Hobbit. I'm going for my birthday. Yay!
