1ST PICTURES OF KELLAN LUTZ & LIAM MCINTYRE IN 'HERCULES 3D' EPIC ADVENTURE! ADELE, ELTON JOHN, DAVID BECKHAM, MICHAEL CAINE, COLIN FIRTH IN 'THE SECRET SERVICE'? TOBIAS MENZIES CAST IN 'OUTLANDER' EPIC SHOW!

FIRST 'HERCULES' PHOTOS
 KELLAN LUTZ & LIAM MCINTYRE
Your main treat for today is the first picture of hunky Kellan Lutz in the costume in his upcoming new historical adventure HERCULES 3D! Unlike Dwayne Johnson's HERCULES THE THRACIAN WARS which will show the son of Zeus as a warrior, Renny Harlin's version will see Kellan Lutz as a mythological hero in the love story between the Greek demigod Hercules and the mortal princess of Crete! The $70 million epic will also have Liam McIntyre from SPARTACUS (playing young army captain Sotiris, who is initially an antagonist of the mythical hero Hercules. The two of them become close friends before being sold into slavery by a treacherous king), Luke Newberry as Agamemnon, Roxanne McKee as Queen Alcmene, Scott Adkins as King Amphitryon, Johnathon Schaech and Rade Serbedzia as centaur Chiron, in the cast.
DID YOU KNOW?
The film, which opens up in cinemas next March, isn't the first project in which Kellan plays a mythological hero - he was Poseidon in Tarsem's epic IMMORTALS. Harlin didn't want Kellan to become too big in muscles for the role, but to only make his abs pop out more. The film was shot this summer down in Bulgaria!

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
VIN DIESEL IS A LIVING TREE?
Well, much ado about nothing: all that talk and hype that Vin Diesel launched around his casting in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY ended up with him only getting a one line role in the superhero movie: according to 'Deadline' Vin will lend his voice to Groot, a living tree with a deep voice which utters only one sentence to everybody - I' am Groot!
ADELE & ELTON JOHN IN 'THE SECRET SERVICE'?
Interesting piece of news comes from Matthew Vaughn too who is apparently trying to cast music star Adele as the villain in his new film THE SECRET SERVICE. The movie will see Taron Egerton playing a teen runaway who is recruited into the spy business by his uncle, played by Colin Firth.Since he wants to cast other showbiz stars too, Vaughn also plans to hire David Beckham and Elton John. Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson are already in the cast.

TOBIAS MENZIES CAST IN
 STARZ EPIC SHOW 'OUTLANDER'
We have new casting news for Starz upcoming epic show OUTLANDER based on Diana Gabaldon's fantasy saga about a woman who time travels to the 18th century Scotland where she falls in love with a highlander to be played by Sam Heughan. Tobias Menzies, who was amazing as Brutus in ROME and as Edmure Tully in GAME OF THRONES too, will play a double role: he will be the woman's husband from the 1940's, a history professor who worked for British secret service during WW2, and also his 18th century ancestor Black Jack, who is the villain of the story. The main female role is yet to be cast and the shooting of the 16 episodes (the longest for any of the Starz epic shows) starts this Autumn in Scotland.

  1. I am excited for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. It could be a stand alone movie. I am surprised about Vin Diesel being Groot. The last I heard he wanted to be Vision.

    1. he wanted a little bit of everything, methinks :) This is not official, yet, so he might be someone totally different in the end. There's a stolen GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY trailer circling around the net currently :) if you can find it :)

  2. "Outlander" sounds good but quite frankly, "The Secret Service" just sounds bizarre. Singers usually suck at being actors.

    1. yep, 'tis true. Not all of them (Justin Timberlake is great on film too) but most of them. Pink and Lady Gaga currently have films in cinemas, and both are horrible in acting.

  4. Umm, yeah. I think I like the sound (who am I kidding...THE LOOKS) of this version of Hercules way better!

  5. Kellan Lutz as Hercules? I think he'd do great. Must have been a lot of physical hard work preparing for that role.

  6. We used to enjoy the TV show about Hercules, but Ken Sorbo always struck me as an odd choice for the part. Not that he didn't do a great job, but he doesn't exactly have bulging muscles or that macho man appearance. Kellan Lutz looks pretty doggone good, though, doesn't he?

    "Outlander" sounds like must-see TV.

    1. yep, Sorbo was a special guy :)
      I think you will enjoy OUTLANDER, Susan, if you like Gabaldon's bestseller :)

  7. Well, I am not sure if Hercules would draw me into the theater, but Kellan Lutz sure would :)

  8. I'm sort of out of touch I guess. I'm not familiar with Lutz. Have to catch up one of these days!

  9. I'm not familiar with Tobias Menzies. But he better prepare to be hated. Black Jack does some despicable things. :D

  11. I'm not replying to comments today or doing much commenting as the Hubby had a heart attack today. It appears to have been minor and he was at the doctors when it happened. I'll do a short post on it tomorrow.

  13. OUTLANDER should be great. Looking forward to that.

    While I'm not a fan of 3D, HERCULES 3D shows promise.
