GERARD BUTLER & VIN DIESEL IN 'KANE & LYNCH' VIDEO GAME MOVIE? 'LEGEND OF THE SEEKER'S CRAIG HORNER & CRAIG PARKER IN 'HINDSIGHT' & 'SLEEPY HOLLOW' SHOWS! 'THE LOTTERY' DYSTOPIAN SHOW GETS MICHAEL GRAZIADEI, LESLEY ANN BRANDT

'KANE & LYNCH' ADAPTATION
GERARD BUTLER & VIN DIESEL
Now, this is certainly an uber cool possible tandem: 'The Hollywood Reporter' writes that Gerard Butler and Vin Diesel could take the lead roles in the movie adaptation of video game KANE & LYNCH to be directed by F. Gary Gray who already worked with Butler on LAW ABIDING CITIZEN. The game follows Kane (Butler), a death row inmate who, along with a schizophrenic killer named Lynch (Diesel), is sprung from prison to retrieve a stolen fortune. Kane travels to Los Angeles, Japan and Cuba, with Lynch acting as the team's watchdog in order to save his wife and daughter. As you know, before that Gerard has to finish GOD OF EGYPT historical epic in which he plays an ancient and very evil God.

CRAIG HORNER JOINS VH1'S 
NEW SHOW 'HINDSIGHT'
Did you miss delightful Craig Horner from legendary LEGEND OF THE SEEKER? He's back and he's just landed a lead role in VH1's new pilot HINDSIGHT! 'Deadline' reports that the show centres on Becca (Laura Ramsey) who, as she nears 40, is about to embark on her second wedding, but her joy is tempered by the absence of her old best friend Lolly (Sarah Goldberg) who’s a no-show, having dropped out of their relationship years ago. As Becca mulls over her past with Lolly and the mishap of her marriage to her first husband, Sean (Craig Horner), she wakes up on her wedding day and discovers that it’s 15 years in the past – she’s about to marry Sean, her own parents are still married, and Lolly is still in her life. Becca must now decide to either go ahead with her marriage to Sean and watch the years play out as they have before, or chuck it all and try for a re-do of the history of her life that’s still in the future.

CRAIG PARKER IN 'SLEEPY HOLLOW'
It is interesting that another LEGEND OF THE SEEKER star can currently be seen on the small screens! Brilliantly charismatic Craig Parker (whom we also watched as Roman general in SPARTACUS and as Elven general Haldir in LORD OF THE RINGS) has just appeared in the latest episode of SLEEPY HOLLOW playing Colonel Tarleton!

'THE LOTTERY' DYSTOPIAN SHOW
WIN A BABY AT THE LOTTERY!
Another rather unusual show will be seen over at Lifetime. They're preparing a pilot for THE LOTTERY,  conspiracy thriller set in a world where women have stopped having children threatening extinction of the human race. When 100 embryos are successfully fertilized, a national lottery is held to decide the surrogates. Michael Graziadei (AMERICAN HORROR STORY) is playing a recovering alcoholic and single father of one of the last children born in the country. Lesley Ann Brandt (SPARTACUS) will be a soldier longing for a child who jumps at the shot at being a surrogate by participating in the lottery. Louise Lombard is playing a formerly free-spirited artist who is now a member of the Washington power elite, an accomplished writer and spinmeister who has the ear of the president.

  1. I'm always drawn to those dystopian stories. The Lottery sounds interesting, like Handmaid's Tale or Children of Men.

    1. and it reminds me of that 80's sf film in which the poor girls were used as surrogates for rich ladies and they lived in their homes like some kind of obedient pets.

    2. That was probably The Handmaid's Tale. Never saw it, but I'm sure it wasn't as good as the book.

      Oh, and I will probably miss your counter roll over to 3million. I have to go see the dentist now. :(

  4. Interesting concept with Lottery! Too bad I won't be seeing Craig Parker in Sleepy Hallow. Had to give that one up. It just wasn't holding my attention.

    1. yes, my feeling too, Theresa, SLEEPY HOLLOW lost its momentum after the first episode and is now becoming a random slow/mo show. I'm still watching because I love the charisma of Tom Mison and must see Craig in the latest episode, but I'm not sure if I will watch it later on too.... All of the new shows have been disappointing so far. ATLANTIS is almost atrocious and hilarious in lack of quality, REIGN and DRACULA are lovely visually, but have a slow beginning and need to work on the quality - we shall give them a chance. Hope ALMOST HUMAN which soon begins won't disappoint.

  5. almost an all male review today and then the lovely at the end brings it all home. I too gave up on Sleepy Hollow, it was a great start that soon started to sink for me.

    1. well you usually end the desert with a cherry in the end :)
      I will probably finish watching SLEEPY HOLLOW, since, if I got it right, it has less than ten episodes in the first season, but it really is weak.

  6. I'd certainly like to know why women stopped having children in The Lottery. I guess I'll have to watch to find out.
