'GAME OF THRONES' ED SKREIN SUCCEEDS JASON STATHAM IN 'TRANSPORTER' REBOOT! BOYD HOLBROOK & JAI COURTNEY FOR 'TERMINATOR GENESIS'! OLIVIA WILDE IN 'MEADOWLAND'! TOM CAVANAGH IN 'THE FLASH' SHOW

ED SKREIN IS THE NEW
TRANSPORTER!
You know I'm not a fan of the genre, but it seems we shall have an action movie day today at HOLLYWOOD SPY! Firstly, GAME OF THRONES star Ed Skrein will take over the lead role from Jason Statham in the reboot of action movie TRANSPORTER. The story which follows a transporter Frank Martin, whose job is to transport goods and ask no questions, will again have a story set down at French Riviera! 'Variety' reports that the producers are currently also searching for a senior thespian who would play Martin's father. The $30 million film will be produced by Luc Besson! The previous three movies in the franchise have earned more than $200 million around the world.

OLIVIA WILDE
OF TO MEADOWLAND
Deadline reports that we shall also see Olivia Wilde in some action scenes since she will both produce and star in MEADOWLAND a psychological thriller in which she plays a mom whose son disappears, a jolt that puts her on an unexpected and dangerous path toward acceptance as she seeks out a relationship with a neglected boy and watches it take an unexpected turn.
TOM CAVANAGH JOINS 'THE FLASH' SHOW
And over at the small screens, Tom Cavanagh will experience some lab action in THE FLASH upcoming series. He has joined CW's superhero pilot, an origin story about Barry Allen, aka The Flash (Grant Gustin), a Central City assistant police forensics investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. Cavanagh will play Harrison Wells, a rock star in the world of physics and the mind and money behind Central City’s S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator whose explosion will create world's fastest superhero!

TERMINATOR GENESIS
 BOYD HOLBROOK, JAI COURTNEY TO PLAY KYLE REESE
Other action news come from the preproduction of TERMINATOR GENESIS where they have apparently brought the candidates for the role of Kyle Reese down to SPARTACUS star Jai Courtney and Boyd Holbrook from OUT OF THE FURNACE. As you remember from previous instalments Kyle Reese is a soldier sent over from the future to protect Sarah Connor with whom he later on gets a son John Connor, the future resistance leader. Jason Clarke has already been cast as John Connor with GAME OF THRONES star Emilia Clarke playing Sarah Connor. The movie is scheduled for July 2015!

  1. Um, why do we need a reboot of Transporter already, and what the heck is with recasting Jason Statham? Won't be the same without him.

    Tom Cavanagh as Barry Allen I like. The Flash is shaping up to be something worth watching.

    1. Don't ask me, there is also a TV show on it... overused if you ask me :)
      No, no, Cavanagh will be a man who created The Flash, not Barry Allen himself... that will be Grant Gustin

    2. Yeah, sorry, Dez - got ahead of myself there with he Barry reference. As a comic book geek I should know better. LOL

      I've also read that John Wesley Shipp (who was awesome as The Flash) will have a recurring "mysterious" role. I really like that connection to the 90s TV series.

    3. He will? Oh, I would love that... I'm not planning on watching the show... but if Wesley Ship will be in it I might give it a go... I did love the original series. He and Amanda Pays were such a great tandem

      We do love Olivia... not her choice of roles, but her talent yes and we love her husband too... they're the cutest couple ever

    2. That's right, aside from my man Michael, Jason is sexy. And, now that Anne dumped Bruce, I can eye him too.

      Delete
    3. Which Anne? Our Anne? I'm not informed....

      Delete
    4. Oh yes dear, I dumped Bruce, I had too, he was getting too possessive. It's like this. We were at a party and Gerard Butler was making eyes at me. Well, I didn't do anything wrong, except be polite, But Bruce got in a temper and threatened to beat up Gerard. That was it. I said I'm done, it's over, get out. But Gerard did send me a bouquet of roses yesterday so it looks like we may be hooking up :)

    5. Bruce would've lost in a fight with Gerry Berry :)

    1. too bad you're not half done with the rum :) That would've been much more fun :)

      Delete
    2. If that were the case, I'd be no where done with the room. Because I don't drink at all. I even get a little loopy when I drink a cafe drink at the bookstore. That's some powerful stuff.

      On a five minute break. Very pleased with the progress. I see the end result .... it's nearly there .....

      How's your day going?

    3. Boring and uneventful as usually. No work in this horrid crises and that makes this little coon a bit depressed

  12. None of the movies really grab me today. As a mother, I can't watch those movies with missing kids as it scares me too much. My stomach gets all in knots and I end up crying. I too love Olivia. She's one of those women that men want and women want to be. We women don't even hate her for being sexy.

    1. I did notice that Livie Wilde is one of them gorgeous ladies that other ladies don't hate :)
      I do understand, I myself never watch movies in which kids are in danger or in violent situations.

  13. I hope Boyd gets the role.
