DUSTIN HOFFMAN, KATHY BATES, ALFRED MOLINA JOIN 'BOYCHOIR'! AARON STANFORD & AMANDA SCHULL TO LEAD '12 MONKEYS' SF SHOW! ALL 'THE HOBBIT THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG' CHARACTER POSTERS & STUNNING THIRD TRAILER! DANE DEHAAN & ALICIA VIKANDER IN 17TH CENTURY 'TULIP FEVER' DRAMA


12 MONKEYS SF TV SHOW GETS
AARON STANFORD AND AMANDA SCHULL
In today's TV news, 'Deadline' reports that SyFy has found their lead stars for the television show on 12 MONKEYS sf film which starred Bruce Willis, Madeline Stowe and Brad Pitt. NIKITA star Aaron Stanford and SUITS star Amanda Schull will star in the new sf show in which the story follows the journey of Cole (Aaron Stanford), a desperate and haunted time traveller from the post apocalyptic near future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race. Amanda Schull will play Cassandra Railly, a brilliant doctor who is forced to choose between her idyllic life or joining Cole’s mission to uncover the dangerous conspiracy.


TULIP FEVER EPIC DRAMA
DANE DEHAAN & ALICIA VIKANDER
British Daily Mail writes that young Dane DeHaan (CHRONICLE, THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN II) is negotiating  to join Alicia Vikander in the big screen adaptation of Deborah Moggach's novel TULIP FEVER! To be directed by Justin Chadwick (who already has experience with period set movies since he helmed the godawful THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL with atrocious Natalie Portman) the film follows a beautiful young woman from the 17th century, married to wealthy merchant, who commissions an artist to paint her portrait. When the artist arrives, she's smitten, and they plan for a future together by putting their money into the highly speculative tulip market, in which certain flower bulbs were worth huge sums. Moggach also wrote THESE FOOLISH THINGS upon which legendary THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL movie was based.

'BOYCHOIR' HIRES
DUSTIN HOFFMAN & KATHY BATES
Speaking of THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL, we must also mention another delightfully heartwarming movie which warmed our hearts last years - Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut QUARTET which also starred Maggie Smith. 'Deadline' writes that Dustin has just signed on to lead the cast in another inspirational movie BOYCHOIR which will also bring a story of music and kindness. The film tells the story of troubled 11-year-old Stet, a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who ends up in a school choir butting heads with Choir Master Carvelle (Hoffman), who pushes the boy to find his creative heart and soul in music. Alfred Molina is set to play fellow teacher Drake and Kathy Bates will be the school’s headmistress. A worldwide search for a musically and dramatically gifted young thespian to play Stet is currently on.
