SAM WORTHINGTON, JIM STURGESS, RYAN KWANTEN, ANTHONY HOPKINS IN 'KIDNAPPING FREDDY HEINEKEN'! EMILY WATSON, HARRY LLOYD, EDDIE REDMAYNE IN 'THEORY OF EVERYTHING'! STAR TREK'S JERI RYAN JOINS 'HELIX' SF SHOW!

KIDNAPPING FREDDY HEINEKEN
SAM WORTHINGTON, ANTHONY HOPKINS, JIM STURGESS, AND RYAN  KWANTEN
Now if this ain't an uber hot male cast, I don't know what is: 'Variety' reports that three Hollywood hunks Sam Worthington, Jim Sturgess and Ryan Kwanten have joined KIDNAPPING FREDDY HEINEKEN which already has Anthony Hopkins! Based on Peter L. De Vries' bestselling book the script is focusing on the true story of Dutch beer mogul Alfred "Freddy" Heineken (Anthony Hopkins), who was kidnapped along with his driver Ab Doderer in 1983. They were both released after the ransom of a whopping 35 Dutch guilders was paid, which is the equivalent of $50 million today. The abductors were eventually caught and prosecuted. Daniel Alfredson is directing. Methinks the ladies will enjoy the hunky cast and the gents will enjoy the film with a can of Heineken!

THEORY OF EVERYTHING
 EDDIE REDMAYNE, HARRY LLOYD, EMILY WATSON, FELICITY JONES
Another guy favourite among the ladies, red headed Eddie Redmayne from LES MISERABLES is getting new company in his new project THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING in which he plays famous genius Stephen Hawking! British thespians Emily Watson and David Thewlis have now joined the cast which also includes Felicity Jones, Charlie Cox, Maxine Peake and GAME OF THRONES' Harry Lloyd! The film, which has just started shooting over in UK, will see Eddie Redmayne playing famous physicist Stephen Hawking and Felicity Jones playing Jane Wilde, the arts student he fell in love with while studying at Cambridge in the 1960s who later became his wife.
THE JUDGE'S WILL
Deadline reports that  Alexander Payne will direct for Fox a movie adaptation of Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's story THE JUDGE'S WILL  about the final moments in the chess game relationship between an ailing Delhi judge and his beautiful younger Bombay wife. Each has separate lives even though they live under the same roof and as he nears death, the judge wants to be sure that his even younger, barely educated mistress is cared for and not cast out. Describing the spousal battle and unfolding the judge's secret life, the story proves that the wife and the mistress, are indeed different versions of the same caged animal.

JERI RYAN JOINS SYFY'S
 SCIENCE FICTION SHOW HELIX
And here's a delightful piece of news for all you STAR TREK fans: gorgeous Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine from STAR TREK VOYAGER) has scored a guest starring arc in SyFy's new science fiction show HELIX! It is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to the high-tech research facility Arctic Biosystems, to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that may hold the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation. However, the lethal threat is just the tip of the iceberg, and as the virus evolves, the chilling truth begins to unravel. Ryan will play the beautiful and charismatic Constance Sutton, the Chief Operating Officer of Ilaria Corporation, owner of Arctic Biosystems, the research facility where the series takes place. Charming and savvy, Sutton is used to getting her way at any cost.The cast is lead by Billy Campbell and Hiroyuki Sanada.

  1. Wow, this post is like a pinata... full of goodies, and I didn't even have to whop it with a stick to get at 'em. The SyFy (I HATE that new spelling) show sounds terrific, and I'm a huge fan of Hawking, so there's two winners right there for me.

  6. Very much looking forward to The Theory of Everything. We think of Hawking as less human and more genius. Also will be nice to remember that there was a time that he walked and spoke with no assistance. Should be a good one.

    1. I will most certainly give HELIX a go since I adore stories set in icy regions, especially in isolated polar places :)

  15. Kidnapping Freddy Heineken looks really interesting. I'm usually not into Action but watching these 3 hunks including Anthony Hopkins is definitely a treat.
