EWAN MCGREGOR IS "OUR KIND OF TRAITOR"! JOHNNY DEPP IS "MORTIMER WINTERGREEN"! MICHAEL GAMBON & ALFRED MOLINA ARE GAY IN "LOVE IS STRANGE"! "THE END OF LOVE" TRAILER WITH AMANDA SEYFRIED, MARK WEBBER!

Will Johnny Depp leave his fantasy world and finally do something that doesn't involve him wearing tones of make up? Of course not, he is busy planning yet another movie from the fantasy genre: Jack Thorne, who is mostly known as the scribe of popular British show SKINS, has just been hired to pen Depp's new magician movie MORTIMER WINTERGREEN. Depp will produce and possibly also star in this film to be directed by NANNY MCPHEE helmer Susanna White. According to "The Hollywood Reporter" the project is loosely based on a 1987 novel written by Myron Levoy titled "The Magic Hat of Mortimer Wintergreen". Set in the 1890s, the book follows a brother and sister who run away from their mean aunt and cross paths with a travelling magician named Mortimer Wintergreen. The man possesses a magical hat with a mind of its own, and the three find themselves on a series of wild adventures.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
My, my, it was only recently that I informed you about Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi preparing a sitcom together in which they will play a grumpy gay couple who constantly fight with each other, and now we 
have another glorious gay match - according to  "Collider" Michael Gambon and Alfred Molina will play a married couple in LOVE IS STRANGE! The upcoming film follows Ben (Gambon) and George (Molina), a couple who marry at a City Hall wedding in Manhattan after 28 years of being together. Shortly after their honeymoon, the couple are faced with a financial issue when Ben is fired from his job as a choir director at a Catholic high school. The pair are forced to move in separately with other people - a nephew and his family in Brooklyn, and two gay cops next door. Meanwhile, our favourite Ewan McGregor has joined new spy movie OUR KIND OF TRAITOR based on a John Le Carre's novel which follows a British couple who find themselves caught up between the Russian Mafia and the British Secret Service after becoming mixed up with a mysterious Russian businessman.

THE END OF LOVE TRAILER
And here is a charming and heartwarming trailer for you today: the first clip for upcoming drama THE END OF LOVE which stars Amanda Seyfried, Shannyn Sossamon, Michael Cera, Aubrey Plaza, Mark Webber and Isaac Love.

  2. Why can't Johnny play a normal role instead of a fantasy character? Obviously it's workin' for him though since I hear he's the highest paid actor.

  4. The trailer was heart breaking ~ We finally went to watched the Lincoln movie last weekend (it was a good one) and saw all the movie trailers, The Oz, Superman, including Johnny Depp's new movie ~ I wish he would play a normal guy but I guess he likes to experiment and play different roles ~

    Have a good week Dezzy ~

    1. It is always wonderful watching all the exciting new trailers at the big screens, isn't it? :)

  5. We went and saw "The Impossible" yesterday. Ewan McGregor was his usual stellar self! And speaking of stars, I loved the brief cameo by Geraldine Chaplin. Nice to see her in a film again.

    1. I wish he was nominated for an Oscar for that role :( He wasn't nominated for MOULING ROUGE either, and he should've won that one...

  6. I really, really want to see End of Love. It looks utterly charming and so nice to see that Amanda is not the love interest, trying her chops at another role.

    And Johnny can play whatever he wants. I love him and will never ever stop. :)

    1. I've read over at IMDB that the film is actually bad, but I'd still watch it myself too, I love such stories which have meaning and deal with real drama.

  7. Ohhh... That would suck. Honestly I'd rather lose a kid than a wife. I can always make another kid. ._.

    1. agreed, especially since the influence and impact of an adult person on other people's lives and society is much bigger than the impact of an unborn baby or a foetus.
