'GODS OF EGYPT' EPIC GETS
 BRENTON THWAITES NEXT TO GERARD BUTLER, GEOFFREY RUSH, NIKOLAJ COSTER WALDAU
I have new info for you today from the casting process of new ancient Egyptian epic GODS OF EGYPT! Young Brenton Thwaites has joined Gerard Butler, Geoffrey Rush and Nikolaj Coster Waldau. Gerard Butler will play Set,  god of the desert and storms who kills  his own brother Osiris after which he gets in conflict with Horus (Coster-Waldau), the son of Osiris and god of sky, who seeks revenge together with Hathor, goddess of love. 'Deadline' reports that Thwaites will play Bek, a human thief who cares little for the affairs of gods but when he discovers his love has been cursed by Set, he falls on the side of Horus, hoping that Set’s death will break the curse! Geoffrey Rush will play Ra, the God of the Sun who is father to both Set and Osiris, and also Set's ultimate target. Thwaites has a number of big roles in the future: he's a prince in Angelina Jolie's MALEFICENT and also plays the lead in fantasy movie THE GIVER next to Meryl Streep, Taylor Swift and Jeff Bridges.

NEW MOVIE BOOK ADAPTATIONS
ANIMALS ATTACK IN 'ZOO'
When it comes to book adaptations I have two for you today: first, CBS has ordered ZOO series based on the book by James Patterson. It is set amidst a wave of violent animal attacks sweeping across the planet. A young renegade scientist is thrust into a race to unlock the mystery behind this pandemic before time runs out for animals and humans alike.
'SYLO' FANTASY BY DJ MCHALE
Meanwhile, Fox will make a movie out of fantasy books SYLO by D.J. McHale. The story follows the inhabitants of a small island who find themselves cut off from the mainland by a mysterious government military force. A group of teens escape to the mainland, only to discover that the inhabitants of the United States have all but vanished, and that they were actually being kept safe.

THE INVISIBLE WOMAN TRAILER
 RALPH FIENNES, KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS, FELICITY JONES
And I have a period set movie trailer for you today! It is for upcoming THE INVISIBLE WOMAN film which opens up in cinemas this Christmas starring Ralph Fiennes in the lead role. Fiennes  also directs this 19th century story playing famous English writer Charles Dickens who, at the height of his career, meets a younger woman who becomes his secret lover until his death. Beside Fiennes, the cast also includes Felicity Jones as his secret obsession Nelly Ternan, GAME OF THRONES' Michelle Fairley, Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Hollander and Charlotte Hope. The movie is based on Claire Tomalin's book "The Invisible Woman: The Story of Nelly Ternan and Charles Dickens"!

  3. Ooh, I was at the zoo last week. Escaped just in time. And Ralph Fiennes makes a decent Dickens, though I'm not overly fond of that story. I recall Nelly did not have nice things to say about the lecher after he died.

    1. pffft.... sweet sister, you can never escape the zoo.... especially when the coons and possums are on the watch.... They're watching you right now too......
      And a combo of Fiennes and Scott Thomas again is just too much of an utter bore....

  7. I remember watching Brenton Thwaites in SLiDE a few years ago and thinking that he was going to cross the pond and take off here in the U.S. I just didn't think it was going to be this meteoric rise so quick. I shouldn't have been surprised though. With those gorgeous looks, it was bound to happened soon. Can't wait to see all the projects that he has in the books.

    1. he seems rather lovely, hope he has talents and if he has, hope he gets noticed.

    2. I really liked him on SLiDE, and I'm seeing excellent reviews of Occulus with Katee Sackhoffj. He's not afraid to take on heavy roles or take off his clothes. Let's hope he continues on the same path. :D

    3. we do approve of the taking off clothes part :)

  8. Gods of Egypt sounds like something I'd like. Sylo sounds interesting. I guess I missed Zoo (the book). I'll decide if I see the movie after I read it. Thanks for info. I hadn't heard about any of them.
