  THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY
MANISH DAYAL JOINS HELEN MIRREN
According to "Deadline" dame Helen Mirren has found herself a partner in the upcoming movie adaptation of Richard Morais' bestselling and heartwarming novel THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY. Dreamworks project will see Helen Mirren playing eccentric and famous chef Madame Mallory who enters the culinary competition between an Indian restaurant and a three Michelin star joint which are placed literally across the street from each other in Southern France. BH90210 and SWITCHED AT BIRTH star Manish Dayal will play a young man from the Indian restaurant with whom Madame Mallory forms a mentoring bond. Outstanding director Lasse Hallstrom (CHOCOLAT, SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN) is helming the film which, set in France, has Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey as producers!


  FIRST PICTURES FROM
'BELLE' STAR STUDDED PERIOD DRAMA MOVIE
Today, you can also check out the first pictures from the period set drama BELLE which should open up in theatres sometime next year.  The movie, which fillows the trials and tribulations of a mixed-race girl from the 18th century, has a rather stellar cast filled with stars: Gugu Mbatha-Raw is in the lead role joined by Miranda Richardson, Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, Sarah Gadon, Tom Felton and two British hunks Sam Reid and Matthew Goode. BELLE is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. Left to wonder if she will ever find love, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar's son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield's role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.

  4. Ian Fleming sure knew how to live. Real life James Bond. No wonder his writing was so good (at least I liked it).

  6. Lots of good (and good looking) projects today. I like the sound of Belle. Lots of potential tension in that one. And who doesn't like playboy gambler spy writers?

  11. I'd be interested in seeing the story of Fleming. To think he lived what he wrote is pretty exciting.

    1. I adore it too, love him so so much! Hope you managed to see his last film SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN, which is in my top ten all times favourite now :)

  14. The Hundred Foot journey should be excellent and I think Belle will be good as well. I've not thought much about how a person of colour would fare in high society. She has the right clothes, but not the right skin colour.

    Now Fleming, I've high hopes for that one.

    1. I'm extremely excited about THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY, you know how much I adore cooking movies especially with that director and that cast!

  15. I've always thought the real story about Cmdr Ian Fleming was as exciting and interesting as anything he created for his James Bond character. As an intelligence officer and spymaster himself with MI6 during the war and after it, he drew heavily on his experiences to write 'Bond'. Truth is always more interesting than fiction and Fleming's story - if done accurately - promises to be a real cracker!
