KIT HARINGTON'S 1ST PIC FROM 'POMPEII' EPIC FILM! RODRIGO SANTORO & WILL SMITH TO 'FOCUS'! 'WHITE QUEEN' CANCELLED BY BBC! JAMES MARSDEN & VINCE VAUGHN ON 'BUSINESS TRIP'! NBC MERMAID SITCOM! BEN RAPPAPORT IN 'LOVE IS DEAD' SITCOM!

RODRIGO SANTORO TO
'FOCUS' WITH WILL SMITH
Our favourite Latino star Rodrigo Santoro, whom you will watch again as Persian emperor Xerxes in 300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE, has a new gig: he will join Will Smith in FOCUS! According to "The Hollywood Reporter" the movie will revolve around a veteran con man (Will Smith) who takes a young woman (Margot Robbie) under his wing and teaches her the illicit trade before falling for her. Years later, they reunite in Buenos Ares as he is planning a complicated operation. Rodrigo Santoro is playing the target of this con, the owner of an international racing team who is also trying to win over Margot Robbie's character. Margot was recently one of the candidates to play CINDERELLA in Kenneth Branagh's movie.

WHITE QUEEN BBC EPIC SHOW
NOT GETTING SECOND SEASON
BBC has officially killed of their epic show WHITE QUEEN which will not be getting its second season! Currently also showing at Starz in USA, the ten episodes which followed famous War of the Roses, got bad reviews both from the critics and from audience for its lack of historical accuracy, chaotic storyline, poor acting, bad costumes, poor sets and lack of character focus. Fingers crossed that another of the upcoming BBC shows WOLF HALL, gets better treatment.
LOVE IS DEAD FOR BEN RAPPAPORT
 In other television news today, USA is preparing new sitcom with Ben Rappaport in the lead role. LOVE IS DEAD is set at an agency that specializes in breaking up romantic relationships on behalf of those who are willing to pay to not be around when it happens. The story centres on Alex (Rappaport) who, after he’s dumped by a representative of the agency, vows to find out what it is, specifically, that’s wrong with him — by taking a job at the company.

BUSINESS TRIP FOR
JAMES MARSDEN, VINCE VAUGHN
Meanwhile, The Wrap writes that James Marsden has joined Vince Vaughn in BUSINESS TRIP. The comedy, which also has Dave Franco and Nick Frost in the cast,  will see Vaughn portraying a businessman whose trip to Europe devolves into madness.You can currently watch James Marsden playing president Kennedy in THE BUTLER.
MERMAID SITCOM AT NBC
And something deeply strange is to come from NBC where they will make a sitcom about a MERMAID from SEX AND THE CITY scribe Jenny Bicks. The new comedy show will follow a beached mermaid in search of adventure who winds up working in a bar in Miami with an eclectic group of people as lost as she is.
SORTA LIKE A ROCKSTAR MOVIE
Matthew Quick, whose novel SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK was made into an Oscar nominated film, will also see his new book SORTA LIKE A ROCKSTAR being adapted at Fox. It follows a high school senior who secretly lives in the back of a school bus, a situation that arose when her mother’s boyfriend kicked them out. The bus (they call it Hello Yellow) is the same one that her mother uses to drive kids to school, and despite the adversity, she is a self-proclaimed princess of hope and girl of unyielding optimism. A fatal tragedy puts her optimism to the test.

  2. I hope for Will Smith's sake, FOCUS doesn't Bomb. He is looking more like Ryan Reynolds in movies than Will Smith, after Men in Black 3 & After Earth.

  10. Kit Harrington nom nom nom.

    So White Queen didn't get picked up for a second season. I've not seen it, but I was looking forward to it.

    Hey, I finally got to see the final season of Merlin on Netflix. You were right, it was darker and I didn't like that. I knew Arthur was going to die, but truly I hated seeing it.

      I was dissapointed how they ended the story between Merlin and Arthur :( Probably one of the worst last seasons ever
