ADELAIDE KANE IS MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS IN "REIGN" SHOW! FANTASY SHOW "RED BRICK ROAD" & ARTIC EPIC "THE TERROR"! RUPERT GRINT IS "SUPER CLYDE"! MIKE VOGEL IN STEPHEN KING'S "UNDER THE DOME" SF SHOW! "FURY" & "DUNKIRK" WW2 FILMS! RALPH FIENNES IN "SANDS"

First today, some sweet TV news! CW has found the lead actress for their new period show REIGN! Australian actress Adelaide Kane will play Mary Queen of Scots at the time when she arrived to France as the future wife of Prince
 Francis. Beside depicting her stay at the court with her three ladies in waiting amidst terrifying foes, mysterious forces, and a world of sexual intrigue, REIGN will also show Mary as a "warrior queen" with a "girl posse" who fought to gain the throne of Scotland after spending her childhood at the French court! Period set tale will also be seen in new TV show RED BRICK ROAD, described as a continuation of the "Wizard of Oz" story but told in a Game of Thrones fashion, filled with politics, intrigue and violence. Meanwhile, AMC is sticking to survival topics in their new show THE TERROR! Based on Dan Simmons bestseller, and produced by Ridley Scott, the show is set in 1847 and follows the crew of a Royal Naval expedition in search of the Arctic’s treacherous Northwest Passage. Instead, they discover a monstrous predator that stalks the ships in a desperate game of survival, which could threaten the region and its native people forever.

  TELEVISION HEADLINES
And even more TV news, people, since we are in the casting season for 2013 pilots: THR reports that Rupert Grint is moving to small screens
taking the lead role in CBS sitcom SUPER CLYDE!  He will play the title role of Clyde, the well-meaning and sweet yet slightly neurotic guy who never feels like he really fits in. The avid comic book reader considers himself a borderline agoraphobic with mild to severe anxiety issues who wishes he were a super hero himself. When Clyde inherits a $100,000 a month inheritance from his long-dead eccentric Uncle Bill, he decides that the cash will be his secret super power and will use it only for good and reward the good hearted. Another CBS show ready to air this summer based on Stephen King's UNDER THE DOME story,
has found another cast member - dashing Mike Vogel will play a mysterious guy in the science fiction show that  follows residents in the community of Chester's Mill as they deal with the postapocalyptic conditions that ensue when a strange dome mysteriously encapsulates the town. Hitting small screens this June, the series already has "True Blood"'s Aisha Hinds, "Secret Circle"'s Britt Robertson, "CSI: NY"'s Natalie Martinez, Jolene Purdy, Nicholas Strong, Alex Koch and Colin Ford in the cast.

  MOVIE HEADLINES
In film news, THR reports that David Ayer (END OF WATCH) will both write and helm WW2 film FURY! Set in April 1945 as Nazi Germany is collapsing, the story follows a five-man crew of an American
 tank named Fury as they embark on a heroic mission that becomes a battle for survival against a desperate German army. Yet another WW2 epic will be seen in DUNKIRK. To be directed by Oliver Parker (DORIAN GRAY) the film tells the story of the courageous British civilians who rescued countless British and French troops during World War II. The battles that took place gave allies the advantage during the war. And "Variety" reports that Ralph Fiennes is likely to star in romantic fantasy drama SANDS which centres around a New York couple who are involved in an accident that leaves the wife in a coma. Her disembodied spirit travels to India where she falls in love with an imaginary man, and the woman is forced to choose between her new love and old life with her husband.Talk about a complex plot!

  3. It's going to be interesting to see if those Harry Potter kids can make the transition to other films/series. They're certainly trying hard.

    1. They were the weakest link in the PLOPPER movies since none of them has true talent, so I'm guessing they will have to try real hard if they want a good career.

  7. I read a bit about those civilians in England who rescued soldiers. They were so brave-the fisherman risked and some lost their lives to save their men. Such a moving story. Civilians were a part of WWII and suffered so much, their stories should be told.

    I think Ralph has the most enchanting eyes.

    Did you hear the scuttlebutt? The Prada wearing Pope has gone into seclusion somewhere secret and it is said that he is now seeking "immunity" This is going to be as big a scandal and horror as I knew it would be. I'm just glad my mum isn't alive to see this.

    1. Well, what do you think is the cause of the asteroid in Russia, the one from last night in Cuba, and the eartquakes at New Zealand and Bosnia... not to mention that a few hours after the Prada Clad Pope resigned a thunder stroke right into St, Paul's cathedral! Devil's business, dahlink....

      On a positive note, did I tell you that I got tweeted and retweeted again today and yesterday by lovely Dylan McDermott and by amazing Tom Riley from DA VINCI'S DEMONS :) Nom nom....

  8. I do like the sound of Reign with a warrior princess and lots of handsome Scotsmen running around. :)))

    And the Rupert Grint project could be a very touching show. I like the idea of a superpower that rewards people for being goodhearted.

    1. yes, a have a strange notion that I've heard about the story somewhere, sometime... but can't put my finger on it :PPPPPP

      And Rupert stole the story for me, actually, I've always wanted to write a story like that :(

  10. I'm excited for Under the Dome! Stephen King is one of my favorite authors from his older writings so I'm hoping it will be more akin to his old school days. I'm still hanging on to hope for the Dark Tower.

    Happy Weekend!

    1. No hopes for DARK TOWER currently, but you never know what the studios come up with when they wake up in the morning :)

  11. I too am excited for Under the Dome but wonder who the mysterious guy is as there wasn't any such character in the book that I recall. I do hope they aren't going to ruin yet another SK book. I always have such high hopes and then, pfft.

    Also interested in The Terror, a fictionalized account of Captain John Franklin's lost expedition of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror to the Arctic to force the Northwest Passage in 1845–1848. I read that book, too, and boy, it makes you appreciate what men did just to discover something new. The conditions they endured were horrific and I was cold the whole time reading that book!

    1. he will play a character who is a veteran or something like that if I recall correctly.
      TERROR should be a very unique show since we haven't had a polar one so far and I adore that setting.

  12. I love the idea of Rupert Grint's new show. And the Mary, Queen of Scots show sounds wonderful as well. And what is with the new Ralph Fiennes movie? That sounds wonderfully eclectic and strange.
