NIKOLAJ COSTER WALDAU IS HORUS IN "GODS OF EGYPT"! 1ST PIC OF HELENA BONHAM CARTER & DOMINIC WEST IN "BURTON AND TAYLOR"! "THE FAMILY" TRAILER WITH ROBERT DE NIRO, MICHELLE PFEIFFER, DIANA AGRON, TOMMY LEE JONES

  NIKOLAJ COSTER WALDAU
IN GODS OF EGYPT
He's one of the most despised people from epic fantasy shows since in GAME OF THRONES he plays the evil Jaime Lannister who is capable of pushing a kid through a window, but privately I'm sure Nikolaj Coster Waldau is a nice chap. And he has a new gig. He is apparently in negotiations to take the lead role in epic adventure GODS OF EGYPT to be directed by Alex Proyas. In the science fiction film based on mythology Nikolaj would play the god Horus, who joins up with the goddess Hathor and a human thief in order to avenge the death of his father Osiris. The script is being written by the same people who are doing Luke Evans' DRACULA for Universal. We've recently seen Nikolaj in OBLIVION next to Tom Cruise and he is currently shooting THE OTHER WOMAN in which Cameron Diaz realizes she is not her boyfriend's primary lover and teams up with his wife (Leslie Mann) to plot mutual revenge!

  ' FABLES' COMIC
  MOVIE ADAPTATION
Hollywood Reporter writes that the movie adaptation of Vertigo's comic book FABLES has found its director: Nikolaj Arcer (that's a popular name today :), who directed Danish historical drama ROYAL AFFAIR will helm the picture to be produced by HARRY PLOPPERS David Heyman. The story centres on fairy and folk tale characters ranging from Snow White and Cinderella, Prince Charming, Beaut and the Beast, to the Big Bad Wolf and Little Boy Blue, who are kicked out of their world and now live in a secret pocket of New York City. There were previous attempts to make a film and even a TV show out of this material.

  BURTON AND TAYLOR
HELENA BONHAM CARTER & DOMINIC WEST 
Today you can also check out the first, rather stunning, picture of Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in new BBC drama BURTON AND TAYLOR! The 90 minute drama, which will also air at BBC America, focuses on the volatile ex-couple's ill-fated appearance in a 1983 revival of Noel Coward's Private Lives. They were married and divorced twice. I'm rather surprised with how Helena looks identical to Liz! I never would've imagine it!

  THE FAMILY TRAILER
 ROBERT DE NIRO, MICHELLE PFEIFFER, DIANA AGRON
Your trailer for today is from new action drama THE FAMILY in which Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Diana Agron play a mobster family. Directed by Luc Besson and produced by Martin Scorcese the film will see De Niro playing a mobster who joins witness protection programme after his mafia turns on him and is relocated to Normandy, France, where he and his wife and daughter find it difficult to give up their corrupt ways and lay low. John D'Leo plays the son of the family, Tommy Lee Jones is also in the cast in the film inspired by Tonino Benacquista's novel "Malavita". The film is out this September! I can't say I like the overly violent trailer.

  4. Gods of Egypt sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Fables could be great as well, but it has to be marketed properly - last thing I'd want is for people to dismiss it as a Once Upon a Time rip-off, when it's really the other way around. ;)

    1. Fingers crossed for GOD OF EGYPT, I'd really adore me an Egyptian mythology adventure! Didn't have any since STARGATE movie. FABLES were supposed to be made into a series for ABC but they've chosen ONCE UPON A TIME instead :)

  5. Is Nikolai one of the most despised characters in A Game of Thrones? I know Joffrey is, but from having read the books, I think there are quite a few fans out here of the Kingslayer.

    1. well, I really don't know how can anybody be a fan of someone who kills kids and has sex with his own sister.... And that being and adult person. Joffrey at least has an excuse in being a kid, although we despise him too.

    2. Oh no...a mobster family. How original. Plus violence? Zap moment.

    3. I did deliberate for an hour or so whether to post the trailer or not, and posted it only because I know so many people love most of those actors in it. I'm not proud :(

    4. I used to take De Niro seriously until he tried to be a comic actor and play the funny mobster. That makes me sick.

  8. Hopefully it's a good DeNiro movie for a change?

  14. I agree with Lynda; The Family looks like a lot of fun. If it was too serious I probably wouldn't be interested but I liked the trailer and it made me smile.

    And Helena is definitely channeling Liz.
