EMILY BLUNT, MICHAEL FASSBENDER IN RUN FOR "GONE GIRL"! JOHN KRASINSKI, JOSEPH GORDON LEVITT, MICHAEL ROSENBAUM IN RUN FOR "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY"! "METEGOL" ANIMATED TRAILER

Now these are certainly exciting pieces of news: according to "Digital Spy" British rose Emily Blunt is the top contender for the lead role
 in the movie adaptation of GONE GIRL bestseller by Gillian Flynn which was sold in over two million copies last year. To be produced by Reese Witherspoon (who was originally mentioned for the role) the movie will tell the story of a man who comes home to discover his wife has disappeared - the story then alternates between the perspectives of the husband and the missing wife herself. Charlize Theron has also been mentioned for this role, while names mentioned for the lead male role include Michael Fassbender, Jon Hamm and Ryan Gosling. 20th Century Fox has paid $1,5 million for the movie rights! We shall see Millie Blunt at the Golden Globes later this month since she is nominated for best comedy/musical actress for SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN!

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
And the casting games for 2014 super hero flick GUARDIANS OF 
THE GALAXY are continuing: after a bunch of uber cool names, from Eddie Redmayne and James Marsden to Zachary Levi, Jim Sturgess and Lee Pace, have been mentioned for the lead role of Star-lord, the new actors thrown in the game are Emily Blunt's hubs John Krasinski, Joseph Gordon Levitt and even SMALLVILLE's Michael Rosenbaum. One of them will get the role of the intergalactic policeman and the leader of the Guardians. Meanwhile Old Spice advert star Isaiah Mustafa, Brian Patrick Wade and former WWE Superstar Dave Bautista are in the running for the role of Drax the Destroyer, the green-skinned warrior created with the sole purpose of destroying villainous Thanos!

METEGOL TRAILER
Here's another delightful trailer for you - it is for Argentinian animated film METEGOL coming from famous director Juan Jose Campanella. The film tells the story of Amadeo, a shy but talented boy, and of a foosball team that is trying to get back together after having been dismantled. With the help of the foosball players, Amadeo will have to face his most terrible rival on the football pitch: the Champ. Guided by their leader, the charismatic Right Winger, the foosball players and Amadeo will set off on a great adventure together, like a true team, to get back the dignity that the Champ stole from them.

  4. Gone Girl is on my TBR list. One of the big word of mouth novels this last year (but the author is Gillian Flynn, darling).

  6. Metagol looks like fun and Gone Girl sounds interesting. Reese and Charlize make very different leading ladies.

  7. Gone Girl is one book I've been meaning to read. It made most of the 'Top Books of 2012' lists I've seen. I liked Emily Blunt in Looper.

    1. I usually never go to the movies either, since I don't have a cinema in my city. I watch all my movies on my computer.

    2. So expensive. If we go, we try to go on bargain night. But then, I've been working so many closing shifts, or as I call them, the Cinderella shifts.

      Hope your day is groovy. Cheers and boogie boogie.

    3. yep, cinema is expensive here too. With the transport, snacks and tickets, you needs a small fortune to see a film in a theatre, and then you sit in uncomfortable chairs and listen to other people's mobile phones and noises...

  10. Happy Orthodox Christmas to you, Dezz! Here on the Canadian prairies, we just call it Ukrainian Christmas because we have such a huge Ukrainian population.

    1. I don't celebrate, but thanks, Debs.
      There are thousands and thousands of Serbs in Canada too. We have about 300,000 of them living in Chicago, but over in your Toronto, and then in Vancouver too, we have tones of them too.

    2. Yes and even a few in Edmonton! My Rare One worked with a Serbian guy before she retired. Nice man, hard worker, a real go-getter as immigrants often are.

    3. yep, and in Winnipeg :) I have my High School best friend living there now.

    1. I'm not either, you know I don't watch superhero flicks. I haven't even seen CAPTAIN AMERICA and you know how much I adore Kiss Evans.

  13. Emily Blunt is a great beauty.......

  14. That was a lot of money to pay for the rights for that book. Oooh so many good names for the cast. You know my first choice for male would be Michael-I just can't get enough of that man. And Millie for the female. I do so hope she wins the award this year too.

    Metegol looks charming. I wish the trailer had been longer though. It would have been nice to hear some dialogue to get a feel for the personalities of the characters.

    I'm late because I pushed forward and completed painting two figures tonight. It's 4:30 a.m. and I'm off to sleep now. Goodnight darling.

    1. yep, that is why, if I ever write a book, I will probably first offer it to movie studios :)
      I'm guessing Millie probably won't win a Globe this year, but I'm happy that she is at least nominated and acknowledged and that we shall see her on the red carpet. Ewan too, since he is also nominated for the same delightful film.

      Sleep tight, dahlink, I will be shopping while you sleep.

  15. I agree with Francis Emily is a great beauty ..

  16. I think Emily Blunt or Reese Witherspoon would be excellent in Gone Girl. Can't wait to see that!
