JESSICA BROWN FINDLAY JOINS JAMES MCAVOY, DANIEL RADCLIFFE IN 'FRANKENSTEIN'! CAITRIONA BALFE IS CLAIRE IN 'OUTLANDER' EPIC SHOW! RYAN GUZMAN, BRIANA EVIGAN RETURN TO 'STEP UP 5"! 'ENEMY OF MAN' SEAN BEAN'S MACBETH MOVIE

RYAN GUZMAN, BRIANA EVIGAN
 RETURN TO ALL STAR 'STEP UP 5'
Now, I don't care what some cynics say, but HOLLYWOOD SPY has always enjoyed famous STEP UP dance movies. I just love the inspirational and positive atmosphere of those films, and you will agree that the last one, STEP UP REVOLUTION had the most spectacular dance choreographies ever seen on the big screen! You already know that STEP UP 5 is in the making and that it will be an all star movie gathering all the faces which became famous thanks to the previous parts of the franchise. Lionsgate has just confirmed that the new instalment, which will be set at a dance competition in Las Vegas this time, will have hunky Ryan Guzman from STEP UP REVOLUTION in the cast, alongside Briana Evigan (STEP UP TO THE STREETS), Misha Gabriel Hamilton, and many other dancers/actors from the previous four movies. Sadly, Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan, who were the stars of the original movie, won't appear in STEP UP 5!

JESSICA FINDLAY BROWN JOINS
JAMES MCAVOY, DANIEL RADCLIFFE IN 'FRANKENSTEIN'
The Hollywood Reporter writes that two boys, James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, won't be alone in FRANKEN- STEIN! DOWNTON ABBEY's Jessica Brown Findlay will now play the lead female role in the horror epic. In the movie in which Daniel Radcliffe plays the hunchbacked butler Igor while James McAvoy is playing Dr. Victor Frankenstein, in the revisionist take on the famous Mary Shelley's classic tale this time told from Igor's perspective, Jessica Brown Findlay will portray a trapeze artist who becomes close to Igor after he saved her life. Findlay also stars in another epic movie - WINTER'S TALE, next to Colin Farrell, Will Smith and Matt Bomer!

'OUTLANDER' EPIC SHOW GETS
CAITRIONA BALFE FOR THE LEAD ROLE
And as I've promised we finally have the lead actress for Starz new epic adventure show OUTLANDER! Gorgeous Irish top model Caitriona Balfe (NOW YOU SEE ME) will head the cast in the 16 episode series based on Diana Gabaldon's bestselling novels. As Deadline reports, she will play Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives. ROME's Tobias Menzies plays Claire's 20th century husband, while Graham McTavish (HOBBIT), Gary Lewis (BILLY ELLIOTT) and Duncan Lacroix (GAME OF THRONES) will play Scottish warriors, the uncles of Jamie Fraser.

'ENEMY OF MAN'
 SEAN BEAN'S MACBETH
And in other news from the epic genre today, this one is a bit stale but you won't mind: earlier this week it has been announced that Sean Bean has set the date for filming his new film ENEMY OF MAN for January! It will be a new take on Shakespeare's MACBETH described as a retelling of a timeless tale of war, regicide, betrayal and untimely revenge. Although 400 years old, Shakespeare’s work feels truly contemporary: An ambitious childless couple; their longing for family replaced by a chilling pursuit of absolute power. Remaining true to its dark heart, the film will strip back the dialogue, crank up the action and produce an atmospheric and blood-soaked chiller. Sean Bean will have a rather amazing company in the cast which also includes GAME OF THRONE's Charles Dance, British thespians Jason Flemyng and James D'Arcy, and HARRY PLOPPER's Rupert Grint! Another version of big screen MACBETH will also be seen next year with Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.

  1. I'm guessing it's not going to be true to the book. There's nobody named or looks like Igor in the novel.

  2. You know how I like dance darling and I still watch the ballroom dancing championships every year. Grace and beauty are the way to go in this ugly old world.

    Great casting in Outlander and the story sounds interesting. Two Scottish men to choose from. To have such a problem as that!

  3. They'd better start calling those 2 Macbeth movies "the Scottish movies" if they don't want to attract the Macbeth curse!

  6. Oh, what a fabulous day. Outlander has its Claire, a new MacBeth movie with Sean Bean is coming. All is right with the world. :)

    1. nothing is right with the world, until they cast the two of us to play the cauldron witches in Fassy's MACBETH :p

      A downpour, dear? Is your yard flooded, or just the city? What sins have you comitted to receive the punishment from the sky? :) I might send you Russell Crowe, you know he has that ark of Noas'....

    2. Playing one of the weird sisters would come quite naturally. :))

      And, yes!! We are having rainpocalypse! It's very scary. We've had nine inches of rain in three days. That's half a year's worth of rain for us. I may have to stir up some batwings and rat tails to get this double trouble to stop. :P

    3. sisters, brothers, their gender is unknown in the play :)
      Hope your house in on a higher ground. I've had my share of floods in the old house and even in this one.... I even had to install shutters on my balcony so that the downpours wouldn't drown my room too...
