BEN WHISHAW, LEA SEYDOUX IN DYSTOPIAN DRAMA 'THE LOBSTER' BY OSCAR WINNER YORGOS LANTHIMOS! SEANN WILLIAM SCOTT JOINS JACKIE CHAN IN 'SKIPTRACE'! SEAN FARIS, GRACE HUANG IN TOUCHING 'LOST FOR WORDS' CLIP! TOM HARDY IS ELTON JOHN

THE LOBSTER DYSTOPIAN FILM
BEN WHISHAW, LEA SEYDOUX, JASON CLARKE
Now here's an interesting script, and you know how much your trusted spy loves original movies: Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, 2009 Oscar winner, is preparing his English language movie debut. Titled THE LOBSTER, it will be a romantic science fiction drama in which the story centres around a group of people who are told to find respective partners, or they will be turned into animals. Set in a dystopian future, the single men and women are brought to a dark hotel before being handed the task.The cast has been gathered and it includes Ben Whishaw (JAMES BOND, HOLLOW CROWN), Lea Seydoux (BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOUR, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, click for her uncensored picture), Olivia Colman (THE IRON LADY, THE BROADCHURCH) and Jason Clarke (ZERO DARK THIRTY).


SEANN WILLIAM SCOTT JOINS
JACKIE CHAN IN 'SKIPTRACE'
In short movie news, comedy action SKIPTRACE, which already has Jackie Chan and Bingbing Fan in the lead roles, has just added Seann William Scott to the cast as well. Based on Jackie Chan's idea the film follows Hong Kong detective Bennie Black who has been searching for crime boss Victor Wong for ten years. His search escalates when his young niece Bai (Bingbing Fan) gets herself into trouble with the crime syndicate, forcing him to call on an American Gambler named Connor Watts (Seann William Scott) to help him in his search. The producers are counting on the comedic chemistry between Chan and Seann.
 TOM HARDY IS ELTON JOHN
Meanwhile, the latest news say that Tom Hardy has taken the lead role in ROCKETMAN, the biographical movie about Elton John! It was previously revealed that Elton John has imagined his biopic in MOULIN ROUGE movie style, with visual splendour and tones of his greatest hits which he will be rerecording for this occasion. Hardy is an extremely versatile actor, and it will be interesting to see how he switches from his upcoming MAD MAX role to playing a gay singer of tender love songs with extremely eccentric fashion style. Justin Timberlake was the previous candidate for the role and he even played Elton in one of his videos. 

LOST FOR WORDS TRAILER
 SEAN FARIS & GRACE HUANG
And the only clip I have for you today is the trailer for touching and sensual romantic drama LOST FOR WORDS, a Chinese film which is currently playing in US cinemas too.  The multi-lingual, cross-cultural production stars Sean Faris (Never Back Down), Grace Huang (The Man With The Iron Fists), Will Yun Lee (The Wolverine, Hawaii Five-0), Terence Yin (Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life) and Hong Kong actress Joman Chiang (Fog, The Drunkard). Amid the sweeping cityscape of cosmopolitan Hong Kong, Michael Vance (Sean Faris), a decorated ex-Marine meets Anna Zhou (Grace Huang), a dancer from Beijing. Against mounting cultural and religious pressure, the star-crossed lovers risk it all in pursuit of true love!

  2. I like Tom Hardy, but it will be hard to imagine him as Elton John. He always plays the tough guy....I might not know as much about Elton John as previously thought!

      Yep, I can't imagine Hardy as Elton either, they have no resemblance physically...... If he can play Elton, than Chris Evans can play me :)

  7. Strangely, I'm intrigued by the story premise for The Lobster. That could be interesting. And Elton John's life is probably crazy enough to fill an entire mini-series with jaw-dropping moments. :)
