EPIC SHOW ON MEDIEVAL SPANISH QUEEN "ISABEL"! KEANU REEVES IN "PASSANGERS" SF! "PIPPIN" EPIC ON CHARLEMAGNE'S SON! TAYLOR KINNEY & CAMERON DIAZ IN "THE OTHER WOMAN"

  KEANU REEVES
 IN SF PASSANGERS
While we're waiting to see the first trailer for his Asian set epic movie 47 RONIN Keanu Reeves has found himself another acting gig: according to "Deadline" he will take the lead role in science fiction thriller PASSENGERS which will be directed by GAME OF THRONES' Brian Kirk. The story of the film follows a traveller who is the only person to awake on a spacecraft taking humans to a distant colony. After he suddenly wakes up 90 years earlier than the others due to a technical breakdown in his sleep chamber and faced with the prospect of growing old and dying alone, he eventually decides to wake up a second passenger, marking the beginning of what becomes a unique love story.

  EPIC FILMS
  PIPPIN & TIBET CODE
In the news from the epic genre today, "Deadline" also reports that Weinstein Co. is preparing a movie adaptation of historical musical
PIPPIN! The historical movie will be set in early Middle Ages bringing the story about the son of King Charlemagne and his attempt to find his place in the world. Speaking of epic, Dreamworks' Jeffrey Katzenberg has announced work on TIBET CODE an Indiana Jones style adventure based on a series of Chinese novels set in 9th century Tibet.
  TAYLOR KINNEY
THE OTHER WOMAN 

And it seems that Fox has found their man for THE OTHER WOMAN! I've reported before that Nick Cassavettes will helm the story  about two women  who discover that they're sleeping with the same guy so they decide to plot an interesting revenge. The women will be played by Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann with CHICAGO FIRE's superhunk Taylor Kinney now in talks to play  the man. In his private life he is the man of Lady Gaga. The cast of the film also has Nikolaj Coster Waldau from GAME OF THRONES!

  ISABEL
 EPIC SERIES
And since your trusted HOLLYWOOD SPY is one of web's leading places for all films and shows of historical genre, here's something new coming from Spain: ISABEL - their epic television series on the life of Queen Isabella I of Castile. The first season was aired earlier this winter in Spain with a great success and the second season is currently being shot. Hopefully the series will be sold around the world too and we shall be able to see it? Year 1474. The current King of Castile, Enrique IV (Isabella's older half-brother played
by amazing Pablo Derqui) is quite ill and begins the negotiations to name his sister, Isabella (Michelle Jenner), heir of the throne. However, his once lord protector, the Marquis of Villena, dies and the
King leaves court in order to mourn his friend. With this unstable situation at court, Isabella needs her husband (Rodolfo Sancho) by her side more than ever if she wants to mantain her claim to the throne.
To her disappointment, her husband has to go back to his Kingdom of Aragon again, something that upsets the future Queen to a great degree. This series is a biography about the Queen of Castile, Isabella the
Catholic. The first season chronicles the period  from the end of her childhood to her marriage with Ferdinand II of Aragon and her difficult
arrival to the Crown. The second season will chronicle the period from her crowning to the conquest of Granada and the beginning of the journey of Christopher Columbus.

  3. As a history buff, I love all the historically-based movies and series coming out recently! They may not all be 100% historically accurate, but at least they get people interested in the lives and politics of those who have gone before.

    1. they say over in Spain that ISABEL follows history pretty close and that even the lead actress (whose talents didn't really amaze me judging from her acting in clips) looks very much alike the real Isabel.

  4. Looking forward to the 47 Ronin, Passangers sounds good as long as there's not too much lovey dovey stuff in it.

    2. I do love Lady Gaga and you say she's with Taylor...Well now, there IS a truly sexy couple.

    3. Yep, they've been together ever since he starred in one of her previous videos, quite a steady couple. And a weird one.... given how hot he is and how crazy she is :)

  7. I'm intrigued by the Keanu Reeves' movie and Isabel looks wonderful. Sadly my Spanish is horribly rusty so I'll have to wait until it comes out on dvd with subtitles.

    1. I've seen a lot of people trying to find ENglish subs for the series around the net :)

  8. OK that pic of Taylor is slightly disturbing. A creepy crawly in his pit and crotch? I think they make medication for that.

  9. Holy Mary Mother of God, look at that picture of Taylor! It's both erotic and artistic at the same time. Wish I'd done the editing on that photo!

    Isabella does look good and if Netflix carries it, they will include subtitles. There are some really good non-English series available there.

    I've tried to like Keanu, really I have. But he just seems so flat in his performances. He's pretty to look at though.

    1. I wish we played the middle part in it if ya know what I mean, sister :) It's a pic from Lady Gaga's ad for FAME perfume, they both have crawling hunks and babes on their naked bodies :) Delightful. Or at least until you hear Gaga saying the perfume carries the aroma of sperm and blood.... WTH???

      I will try to find ISABELA on Torrents and see if it has translations... I need me a new historical show now that I've finished MERLIN and SPARTACUS and have only GOT and DA VINCI'S DEMONS to watch.

    1. It is very interesting. I'm Spanish and this is the first historical TV show made in Spain which actually deserves to be considered as a good one. Hispania could have been a good one, but wasn't accurate enough...
