POWERFULLY DRAMATIC "MR PIP" TRAILER WITH HUGH LAURIE! JUDE LAW TO SAIL "BLACK SEA"! JOHNNY DEPP JOINS MERYL STREEP IN "INTO THE WOODS" FANTASY MUSICAL

  JUDE LAW
TO EXPLORE  BLACK SEA
Since I know all of you like ultra talented Jude Law, here's an info
on his new project: BLACK SEA is an adventure thriller directed by Kevin MacDonald in which Law will play a submarine captain who is laid off by a salvage company and makes a deal with a shadowy backer to look for a storied sunken sub reputed to be loaded with gold at the bottom of the Black Sea. Since this find would get him even with his ex-bosses, he puts together a crew of English and Russian sailors for the task, taking off to uncharted depths with his motley crew. The closer they get to the prize, the riskier it becomes to trust one another.

  JOHNNY DEPP & MERYL STREEP
  INTO THE WOODS

I have recently mentioned that Meryl Streep will star in the movie adaptation of famous musical INTO THE WOODS and now "Variety" reports that Johnny Depp might join her in the Disney's project. The project is based on James Lapine's Broadway musical, which follows a baker and his wife who try to break a curse placed upon them, which prevents them from having children. Along the way, they encounter fairy tale characters such as Rapunzel, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and many more. Meryl Streep is supposed to play an evil witch! The production could start sometime next year with Rob Marshall behind the helm!

  HUGH LAURIE
 MR PIP TRAILER
Here's a powerfully dramatic trailer for you today: starring Hugh Laurie MR PIP is a movie adaptation of a worldwide bestseller from Lloyd Jones and
 should open up in cinemas sometime later this year. As a war rages on in the province of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea, a young girl becomes transfixed by the Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations, which is being read at school by the only white man in the village. Mr Watts is the only white man left on the island after the blockade. He opens the school and introduces the children the 'Great Expectations.' Matilda, the teenage narrator finds comfort in the story of a Victorian orphan when her own world is falling apart. The Redskins, an army sent to destroy the local rebels are getting closer. Matilda writes 'Pip' in the sand. This simple act leads to terrible consequences when the Redskins suspect Pip to be a rebel leader and demand he be brought before them.

  1. Happy Blog Birthday, Dezzy!! Wowzer, 1800 posts!

    And what wonderful projects you've got highlighted today, my dear. I've watched a recorded version of the play Into the Woods before and it was quite entertaining. Looking forward to seeing a movie version.

    Love the photos today, too. Such serious, manly expressions. :)

    1. yep, it's actually 1813 posts so far :) but in the first year I've posted news in separate posts a few times a day :) And I haven't missed a single day. We've had a post for each day in those four years even when I was going through those three horrid Borg surgeries :)
      And proud to have you as the most faithful follower almost from day one, LuAnne!

      Glad you like the pics today, I had to go around Hugh's pic since that film doesn't have an official poster.

  2. Happy Birthday Dez :) And I am definitely on board with Jude Law's next, Black Sea. Sounds like a fun story plus it has Jude who is not only a good actor - imo - but exceedingly attractive. I would take him over the rock or Channing what's his name or Gosling any day of the week and twice on Sunday ;)

  6. Happy Blogger Birthday darling! You are adored by millions for your wit, your charm and your style. Well deserved dear one.

    Liked that trailer for Mr. Pip. It started out very happy, hopeful and light. Then the harsh reality hit. Truth is like that, but I think in the end we all learn from it. I must see this film.
