"ME BEFORE YOU" & "WALKING WITH DINOSAURS" FILMS! "BARBARELLA" TV SHOW! "THIRD PERSON" WITH ADRIEN BRODY, MILA KUNIS, LIAM NEESON, OLIVIA WILDE, JAMES FRANCO!

Star studded movie THIRD PERSON from Oscar winner Paul Haggis will hit cinemas this Fall. This structurally complex drama follows three couples living in Rome, Paris, and New York, with each pairing representing the beginning, the middle, and the end of a relationship. Adrien Brody and Moran Atias play the new couple who take a road trip through Italy. Liam Neeson and Kim Basinger portray the Paris couple, who are both writers. Mila Kunis and James Franco are playing the embattled New York couple. Olivia Wilde, Adrien Brody and Maria Bello are also in the cast. To prove that they don't only offer manly epic shows, Starz is preparing a ballet drama for the female audience.  According to "THR" the untitled entry revolves around a young female ballet dancer named Claire with a troubled past who joins a ballet company in New York. The project, which is described as dark and gritty, will explore the dysfunctional underbelly of the ballet world. Later this year Starz will air another female oriented show - historical series THE WHITE QUEEN!

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Yet, another film which is scheduled for release this year, later in December, but we haven't seen any pictures from it, is WALKING WITH DINOSAURS. Animated adventure from Fox will centre on two teenage brothers who want to follow in the footsteps of their father, as
they discover dinosaurs in the Arctic Circle. The film is being directed by Barry Cook the helmer of delightful ARTHUR CHRISTMAS and MULAN. 
In TV news (don't forget to tune in this Sunday for HOLLYWOOD SPY's extensive spotlight on all TV pilots for this year), SKYFALL writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are set to pen new TV series based on trashy sf film BARBARELLA! The story, which follows Barbarella a young woman who travels throughout space and has various adventures, often of a sexual nature, is supposed to be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.

ME BEFORE YOU
The Hollywood Reporter reports that huge bestseller ME BEFORE YOU which has been sold in half million copies so far will be made into a movie at MGM. Jojo Moyes' unique and emotional love story follows
 Lou, a small-town girl caught between dead-end jobs, and Will, a high-profile, successful man who becomes wheelchair-bound following an accident. Will has decided his life is not worth living until Lou is hired for six months to be his new caretaker. Worlds apart and trapped together by circumstance, the two get off to a rocky start. But, Lou becomes determined to prove to Will that life is worth living, and as they embark on a series of adventures together, each finds their world changing in ways neither of them could begin to imagine. The book has already been sold for translation in over 30 countries!

  4. Me Before You sounds like a very touching story. Hadn't heard of that one. And I shall find a way to tune in for The White Queen eventually. Should be entertaining.

    4. PS: Plus, I figured a scary hand was better than a frozen turd. But not by much.

      Ha.

  8. Walking with Dinosaurs looks interesting (though I'm not sure how that's going to work in the frozen north), as does Barbarella.

  10. Ugh. Definitely not excited about these latest Hollywood offerings. I don't really like Mila Kunis much and the whole Walking With Dinosaurs things just creeps me out. It reminds me of pictures in the Creationist museum where dinosaurs are depicted alongside mankind so that religious people can pretend the world is 7000 years old and deny evolution.

    1. you're preaching to the choir :) I'm an atheist and usually don't get religious people....

  11. There is no way that Liam Neeson would date Kim Basinger in real life. Jesus Christ, the woman is an air-head and she was married to one of those horrid brothers who can't act. Aside from that, the plot for the movie is interesting.

    Barring any unforseen tragedy, I will be here multiple times on Sunday. I will be mostly naked and smiling :)
