LIAM HEMSWORTH IN
CUT BANK & ARABIAN NIGHTS
The youngest member of the Hemsworth family, and the youngest brother of Chris the Thor, Liam Hemsworth has two new gigs: he will join CUT BANK a crime thriller in which he will play a man who dreams of leaving his hometown of Cut Bank, Montana. His attempt to leave triggers a deadly series of events that change the town and his life forever. The film will be quite star studded since the cast also has John Malkovich, Ben Kingsley, Michael Sheen and Teresa Palmer. Two years ago I also informed you that Liam is set to star with Anthony Hopkins in ARABIAN NIGHTS epic adventure. The production has been greenlit by Chinese authorities and the American Chinese project will start shooting this August. The $70 million movie will be a visually stunning 3D retelling of the classic adventure tale about a bold, young commander who joins forces with Sinbad, Aladdin and his Genie to rescue Scheherazade and save her kingdom from the dark powers of an immortal sorcerer.

MELISSA MCCARTHY IN
BUREAU OF OTHERWORLDY OPERATIONS

Melisca McCarthy and Seth Rogen  will play two agents new to the agency, both recently deceased individuals who stumble upon a plot put forth by the most wanted Haunter, which will bring about the destruction of B.O.O. They will have to stop a ghost army from consuming America before it moves onto the rest of the world.

  2. Yup, my vote goes to Arabian Nights, too - I love exotic locations :)
    Oh, and Melissa McCarthy would be perfect for the lead role in the book I'm currently reading - if only someone would make the movie!

    1. and we haven't seen much of Arabian themes ever since PRINCE OF PERSIA SANDS OF TIME, which sadly flop even though it wasn't such a bad film.

  3. I love the idea of an Arabian Nights movie too. Wow, those Hemsworths did get good genes, didn't they?

    Also, that is a wonderful picture of Melissa McCarthy. Just the right amount of retouching. :)

  8. That last one reminds me that German officers didn't mind trying to go after all those French women.

  9. There were many thousands of French women involved with German men in the four years of occupation - their well documented and often cruel fate after liberation equally well known - is the Nemirovsky book a tragedy? It will be interesting to see how the film-maker treats such a story in light of the modern predilection for re-writing history!

    1. and not just French women but women in many other countries. In my country a number of those ladies who slept with the Nazi aggressors were taken to streets and squares by the women whose husbands and sons were killed in the war and were then stripped naked, beaten and their heads shaved.

  10. Hm, this is a different view on events during WW2. I've only heard of this once and it was from a teacher who was an old war buff.
