HUGH JACKMAN IN "SIX YEARS" THRILLER! NEW "THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO" FILM! HILARIOUS TRAILERS AND PICS FOR NEW ANCIENT ROME SITCOM "PLEBS"! ELENA SATINE IN "THE SIXTH GUN" SF SHOW

According  to "The Hollywood Reporter" everybody's favourite Hugh Jackman, who you've seen this winter shinning in LES MISERABLES
and will see later this summer in WOLVERINE, has taken the lead role in SIX YEARS! The big screen adaptation of the yet unpublished upcoming novel by Harlan Coben (for which Paramount led battles with other major studios) centrers on Jake Fisher, a man who, six years ago, watched the love of his life Natalie marry another man. When he discovers an obituary of the man she married, Jake goes to the funeral, in hopes of seeing Natalie. He learns that the widow is not Natalie, forcing him to question all of his past memories.

  NEW COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO FILM 
  And while we're mentioning LES MISERABLES, another classic will get its new movie version soon: according to THR David S. Goyer will direct Alex Dumas' THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO which is set in the early 19th century and centres on Edmond Dantes, a young man who is falsely imprisoned. During his time in prison, he meets a man that educates him and gives
 him the coordinates for a hidden fortune. After he escapes his imprisonment, he heads back to Paris where he plots to exact his revenge on the men that put him in prison.
  ELENA SATINE IN THE SIXTH GUN SF SHOW 
  In TV news, upcoming sf show THE SIXTH GUN has added mindblowing beauty Elena Satine to the cast! The supernatural Western follows the story of six mythical guns, each with its own other worldly powers. When the Sixth Gun, the most powerful and dangerous of the group, resurfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, Becky Montcrief (Laura Ramsey), dark forces re-awaken. "Deadline" writes that Satine will play the “widow” Missy Hume, a powerful Madame who runs the town of Brimstone kept unnaturally youthful by being in possession of the Fifth Gun. A cold stunningly beautiful woman of great cunning, she is unafraid to use whatever means to collect all Six Guns for her own dark purposes.

  ANCIENT ROME SITCOM PLEBS 
Here is something hilarious in an epic way, and I mean literally - a new sitcom set in the epic times of ancient Rome! I have already written before about the new comedy PLEBS but it is now ready to premiere at ITV2 in six half hour episodes! PLEBS will be a thoroughly modern  comedy with an ancient setting. The series will follow three desperate young men from the suburbs as they try to get laid, hold down jobs and climb the social ladder in the big city – a city that just happens to be Ancient Rome! The series stars Tom Rosenthal (Friday Night Dinner), Joel Fry (White Van Man, Trollied) and Ryan Sampson (Work Experience, After You’ve Gone) as the three young men – Marcus, Stylax and their lazy slave with a major attitude problem, Grumio. Doon Mackichan (Smack The Pony) also stars, as the boys’ ruthless boss, Flavia - an expert manipulator with a private life that's the stuff of legend. A sexy newcomer called Cynthia played by Sophie Colquhoun (The Inbetweeners Movie, Switch) soon joins the boys as she moves into the flat next door along with her sarcastic slave Metella played by Lydia Rose Bewley (The Inbetweeners Movie). Rome is traditionally imagined as the home of emperors and senators, generals and  gladiators, a dignified theatre of pomp and ceremony. But what about the little guys, the wasters - new to the big city, stuck in office jobs, unable to get the girls? Unlikely to be immortalized in the annals  or memorialized in a frieze, Marcus, Stylax and Grumio are essentially just a bunch of Plebs. And whether they’re wearing togas, or skinny jeans, desperate young men in any period of history are essentially cut from the same cloth.

  2. well, as a matter of fact we do like Hugh but he should really quit scowling like that; he'd look ever so much handsomer if he'd smile a little! And plebs looks hilarious.

      I have the same problem as Hugh - I often scowl like that and have a nasty line there which I must erase with facial creams :)

  3. The Plebs sounds great! And since it's coming from ITV2 Netflix will carry it fairly quick. And ITV2 doesn't seem to have a problem with their stuff being put on Youtube. I watch loads of stuff from there on Youtube and it's legal downloads.

    God, Hugh looks magnificent in that photo. His eyes are so intensely emotional there. He must be picturing me naked....

    1. Anne, your comments are great.

      Never heard of ITV2. Sounds good. TLC is a real pain about letting their newer stuff be on YouTube.

  5. Plebs...what a strange concept. But the clips were kind of funny in a crude way. :)

    And Hugh has this look in his eye like he just saw some blond, Irish lady naked. :P

    1. ooh, sorry to hear that, Mel, I kinda like that younger look of him, not that he isn't dashing with short hair too.

    2. the perdiest of them all :) Have you see his wife, though? What a deeply strange couple, not that I don't prefer the combination of differences especially in looks when it comes to relationships :)

  8. A sitcom based in ancient Rome? That will tank.
