GUY RITCHIE TO HELM 'KING ARTHUR' HISTORICAL MOVIE FRANCHISE? FIRST PICS OF ELIZABETH HURLEY & WILLIAM MOSELEY AS QUEEN HELENA & PRINCE LIAM IN 'THE ROYALS' SHOW! 'STAR CROSSED' SF SHOW CHARACTER PHOTOS

  GUY RITCHIE TO DIRECT
KING ARTHUR HISTORICAL FILMS?
In our favourite genre of epic movies, 'Deadline' is bringing us a lovely piece of info: Guy Ritchie will apparently direct a new historical movie on KING ARTHUR, a fantasy retelling of the famous medieval legend to be produced by Akiva Goldsman, planned as a historical franchise with six potential movies! The script for the first one has already been written by Joby Harold (EDGE OF TOMORROW). You probably recall that Warner Bros. was trying to launch ARTHUR AND LANCELOT project last year with Joel Kinnaman, Kit Harington, Gary Oldman and Colin Farrell being mentioned for the roles, but that project was shelved because it was deemed too expensive with the budget of $130 million. Guy Ritchie is currently finishing MAN FROM UNCLE for Warner Bros. with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer.


  THE ROYALS SHOW 1ST PICS
WITH ELIZABETH HURLEY, WILLIAM MOSELEY, VINCENT REGAN!   
Here's something we've been waiting for anxiously: the first pictures from the set of E! first scripted TV series THE ROYALS showing gorgeous Elizabeth Hurley and Vincent Regan as Helena and Simon, the king and the queen of a fictional modern kingdom in the show which will follow the palace intrigues. In the second picture you can also catch a glimpse of CHRONICLES OF NARNIA star William Moseley who plays their son, prince Liam who takes over the role of the heir to the throne after his older brother dies in an accident (the pictures could actually be from his funeral).

  STAR CROSSED SF SHOW
 FIRST CHARACTER IMAGES
In other TV news today, CW has  unveiled first character pictures from their new science fiction series STAR CROSSED which should arrive to the small screens with its first episode February 17th! The new show will be a kind of a futuristic Romeo and Juliet with Matt Lanter and Aimee Teegarden portraying a pair of "star-crossed" lovers - one human, one alien - who go to a high school together. Ten years after aliens Atrians had crashed on Earth and warred with humans they've acclimatized themselves to Earth and now some of the young aliens are sent to a human high school to test the feasibility of their integration. The eyes of the nation and the whole world are fixed on this historical social experiment, an endeavour fraught with suspicion and fear.

  1. So the aliens just have a tattoo that sets them apart in STAR CROSSED? It might be ok as long as it isn't "TWILIGHT" with aliens.

    1. They could certainly opt for a less used king or queen.... but Hollywood loves them overused and abused :)

  4. Elizabeth Hurley looks like Kate Middleton on that pic. Or maybe all the royals look alike :)

    1. Liz was ever so royal and posh :) I don't think they could've chosen a better cast for the show, Vincent is also very kinglike and William is true prince

    3. Trolls & Wankers. Sounds like a blog post title that I could write about. I don't like these people.

    4. not to mention spammers. I had to switch my comments here only to OPEN ID users because before when it was allowed for anonymous commentators I was receiving up to ten spams a day. Blogger catches them all and sends them to spam inbox by I was tired of receiving notifications on each of them.

    5. Yeah, that's a pain in the butt. I had mine open for awhile to anonymous and was tired of that as well. Just so stupid. Like I'm going to keep that comment up.

    6. it's done by computers not by people. the people only set them. For example, the very same moment I open my comments to anonymous I will immeaditely start getting spam again. It's machines and spamming programmes that some people use.

    1. Like History's The Bible miniseries, it's hard to do something on tales mostly of legend and call it history.

    2. The Bible series was such a crapfest... and they even releasing a film made of it this year
