TRAILER FOR SAM WORTHINGTON'S "DRIFT"! EDDIE REDMAYNE JOINS CHANNING TATUM & MILA KUNIS IN SF EPIC "JUPITER ASCENDING"! VIN DIESEL IS THE NEW "KOJAK"!

 Good news, people, good news. HOLLYWOOD SPY's favourite Eddie Redmayne has joined sf movie JUPITER ASCENDING. To be directed by MATRIX and CLOUD ATLAS helmers Andy and Lana Wachovski,
 the movie will have a story set in a future where humans are considered the lowest form of life in the galaxy. Channing Tatum is going to play an intergalactic bounty hunter who is sent by the Queen of the Universe to kill an Earth woman (Mila Kunis) whose genetic traits are identical to the Queen's. The plot thickens when the would-be assassin falls for his target. It is not known whom will Redmayne play. Rising star Eddie Redmayne has first shined in PILLARS OF THE EARTH, then he gave a stellar performance in BBC's BIRDSONG and in MY WEEK WITH MARYLIN, and later this month you will watch him in LES MISERABLES. He's also become a name which often appears at auditions and test shootings for the upcoming blockbusters.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Over the time we've got used to hearing weird things coming from Tinseltown, so this one shouldn't really surprise you: following the unexplainable trend of making remakes Universal has decided to do a
new version of KOJAK! And guess what? They've hired Vin Diesel to play the lead role. SKYFALL, CASINO ROYALE and QUANTUM OF SOLACE scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are writing the screenplay! As "Deadline" reports the KOJAK TV series was popular back in the 70's with Telly Savalas as bald New York City Police Department Detective Lieutenant Theo Kojak. He was known for his signature lollipop, and was a proud Greek American who often celebrated his heritage. This version will be re-imagined in a modern-day setting and will obviously not have a Greek in the lead role :). You already know that Vin Diesel will next be seen in THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS with Luke Evans and then in RIDDICK sf epic.

DRIFT TRAILER
The only trailer I have for you today looks rather boring, but at least you can enjoy shirtless Sam Worthington in it :) His role here is rather different from the
 epic ones we've seen him in before in AVATAR and CLASH OF THE TITANS. DRIFT is a surfer movie which comes to theatres sometime next year and is set in breathtaking locations and inspired by the true story of Australia's legendary surf wear moguls. The film chronicles the rise of the world's premiere action sport and the expansion of the laid back surf attitude as a global lifestyle. A story of passion and corruption, friendship and loyalty, deadly addictions and fractured relationship.

  5. Surfing is a huge deal for the Aussies. I'm not much of a beach bunny, but men in swimsuits, I'll look at that.

    Jupiter looks good. Humans as the lowest form of species in the galaxy-that could actually be true. We don't know yet. I like the idea though of the girl having the same genome as the Queen-I'm already thinking of stories to explain that. What did Queenie get up to when she was young? Hmmmm a tasty morsel of a human in her bed perhaps?

    1. yes, staring at people in swimsuits is the only logical reason to go to a sandy pit under the scorching sun :)
      It should really be an interesting one, hope they don't make it overly philosophical like they did with MATRIX and CLOUD ATLAS.

    2. There were parts of the Matrix I didn't quite get. I think it's harder with a movie to get deeply philosophical and make it understood. With a book that's easier and can be a really good thing. Gives one something to think about.

      You'll have to come to a beach in Ireland. It's cold, it's raining and all the Irish have pale skin and most of us look silly in swimsuits. The view is spectacular though in West Cork from the mountains over the ocean. Me loves that drive.

    3. The first MATRIX was amazing, but the second and third were pure rubbish because they just didn't know how to get themselves out of the messy philosophy and opted for a really bad explanation, if there was any explanation actually in it :)

      Oooh, Annzie, milky white skin, especially hairy one, at the beach, would be my absolute favourite actually :)

  6. Hmmm, surfers were kind of hairy in the 70's, weren't they? :P

  8. vinnie is kojack... okay. just because he is bald doesn't mean he will work... we need a greek actor to shave his head and bring in the lollipop... hollywood is off the deep end again... next they will make a jefferson's remake, but it will be about thomas and his family...

    1. who is Jefferson and why should I inform myself about his family, oh, my zombie lord?

  9. It does seem like Vin was chosen because he's bald, and maye not for his talent.. But hopefully he will do great in the role.

    And yay for a Channing/Mila movie!

    1. He looks quite strange with it, and the same goes for Dwayne Johnson, they're better with no hair or short hair :)

  13. I loved Kojak when I was a kid! Vin Diesel is a good choice for a remake, actually.
