  BANDERAS & SANTORO
ARE CHILEAN MINERS IN "THE 33"
According to "Deadline" Antonio Banderas is ready to take the lead role in THE 33, a movie dramatization of the tragic events in 2010 when the miners in Chile got caved in. Rescuers were working hard to save them during 69 days that the miners spent entrapped! The cast also includes Rodrigo Santoro, whom we shall watch again as Persian emperor Xerxes in 300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE, and Martin Sheen! Banderas will play the leader of the miners.

  DEV PATEL IN
THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY 

When it comes to period pieces, according to "The Hollywood Reporter", everybody's fave Indian actor Dev Patel, who delighted us in THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL and in SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, will play the lead role in THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY, about the life of Indian genius Ramanujan, famed mathematician who worked in isolation in Edwardian India before joining the wider mathematics community in Cambridge.
  SAM CLAFLIN & DOUGLAS BOOTH
ARE 'POSH'   
In a less serious movie, three young superhunks Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth and Max Irons will star together in the movie adaptation of theatre play POSH which follows two first-year students at Oxford University who join the infamous Riot Club  of privileged students, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening.
  ALI AND NINO
  EXOTIC WW1 EPIC

In epic news today: Deadline reports that ATONEMENT scribe Christopher Hampton is adapting epic WW1 love story based on Kurban Said's classic novel ALI AND NINO. The story is set in Azerbaijan where Ali Khan Shirvanshir, the male descendant of a royal Muslim family, falls in love with Nino Kipiani, a beautiful, Christian, Georgian princess.

  THE TOMORROW PEOPLE
 NEW SF SHOW TRAILER
After yesterday's trailers for new sf shows THE 100 and STAR CROSSED, here's a trailer for third new sf show to air at CW this Autumn: TOMORROW PEOPLE - the next evolutionary leap of mankind, a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities. Stephen Jameson stands at the crossroads between the world we  know and the shifting world of the future. Up until a year ago, Stephen was a “normal” teenager — until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up. Now, Stephen’s issues have gone far beyond the usual teenage angst, and he is beginning   to question his sanity. In desperation, Stephen decides to listen to one of the voices in his head, and it leads him to his first encounter with the Tomorrow People — John, Cara and Russell — a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication.

  2. Dev's new project sounds way cool.

    Nino and ALi is one of my very favorite stories. I've read it a hundred times. I'd love to see this film. Let's hope they get some great actors and not just empty, pretty faces.

    Can't say I'm all interested in the miners. Not big on disaster dramas.

    1. bbbbbut but but... we will probably see seminaked sweaty Antonio and Rodrigo in the film!

      Fingers crossed that Dev's girlfriend Freida Pinto doesn't get cast as Nino, she is ever so empty....

    2. Tis true they are making the miners pretty. Good God most of them looked like gargoyles. And they were all old men for the most part. ;)

    3. well, if somebody was playing moi on the big screen, you don't really think I'd choose Stephen Fry or Jim Broadbent to play me, do you? :) I'd choose someone hot myself :) and train them personally....

    5. nobody actually looks like me in Hollywood (although whenever I do what is your celebrity lookalike at those sites around the net I always get Justin Timberlake) so it would have to be someone totally new.

    4. Oh,my, I almost do not remember him from that one... the only thing I remember from it is too much Emma Thompson (nice lady, but in small quantities) and Keanu Reeves painful accent :)
      But it is one of those curious films which have tones of stars who weren't stars at the time (it has Kate Beckinsale, Imelda Staunton....) kinda like 300 (Michael Fassbender, Rodrigo Santoro, Lena Headey, Gerard Butler) or THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL (Jim Sturgess, Eddie Redmayne, Yuno Temple).

  10. Eep. I'm claustrophobic so I shall not be seeing "33" simply because the subject matter will give me nightmares. I'm so glad that real life story had a happy ending. I cannot imagine a worse fate than buried alive. Well...it's a close tie to being torn apart by a great white shark.

  12. If I could pick one super power for myself it would be teleportation so I'm looking forward to the Tomorrow People :)

    1. ah, it would be so difficult choosing a superpower :) I'd be torn between teleportation, being invisible and controlling powers of nature :)

  13. I like the sound of THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY and The Tomorrow People.

    I remember the news about the Chilean miners. I'm glad they survived after all those days being trapped.

    1. Yep, it is always shocking when they save someone who's been trapped for such a long time, like that woman recently in Bangladesh who was found alive half a month after the collapse of that mall.

  14. The 33 and Ali and Nino look good. I think both are great stories and would provide good conversation. Sometimes it's nice to be just entertained (really most of the time) and sometimes it's nice to have to think about what you've seen.

  16. So Tomorrow People is going to be like Heroes basically?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. TOMORROW PEOPLE are a remake of a 70's British show, so if anybody is copying anyone it's HEROES copying them.

  17. Dramatizations of the tragic events make me blue. Unless the money is donated. Then it makes me happy.
