RACHEL WEISZ, COLIN FARRELL IN 'THE LOBSTER' DYSTOPIAN DRAMA! AMY ADAMS, JAKE GYLLENHAAL IN 'EZEKIEL MOSS' PERIOD DRAMA! TIMOTHY OMUNDSON IS KING RICHARD IN 'GALAVANT' SHOW! DAVID SCHWIMMER IN 'IRREVERSIBLE' SITCOM

THE LOBSTER DYSTOPIAN
DRAMA GETS RACHEL WEISZ AND COLIN FARRELL
Earlier last year I informed you that Greek director  and Oscar winner Yorgos Lanthimos is preparing dystopian drama THE LOBSTER and now they have new cast members: Rachel Weisz and Colin Farrell have joined Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux and Olivia Colman. It will be a romantic science fiction drama in which the story centres around a group of people who are told to find respective partners, or they will be turned into animals. Set in a dystopian future, the single men and women are brought to a dark hotel before being handed the task. Rachel Weisz hasn't been active too much on the big screen after she married Daniel Craig two years ago following her divorce from director Darren Aranofsky. In that time she only had roles in OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL and in THE BOURNE LEGACY! She met Daniel Craig while shooting DREAM HOUSE directed by Sam Mendes, who was once in a fling with Rachel. Sam was actually left by Kate Winslet who hated his closeness with old flame Weisz.

TELEVISION UPDATES
TIMOTHY OMUNDSON IS KING RICHARD IN 'GALAVANT' SHOW
In today's TV news, according to 'Deadline' Timothy Omundson has joined the cast of GALAVANT historical musical comedy show at ABC which centres on handsome Prince Galavant (Joshua Sasse), a classic once-upon-a-time hero, complete with sword, horse, great hair, courage, mad skills (like dragon-slaying and helping the poor) — and his quest for revenge over the evil King Richard (Omundson) who stole his one true love, the beautiful Madalena (Mallory Jansen). To Galavant’s shock, Madalena decided she prefers the King and his wealth and power to the love of penniless Galavant.
DAVID SCHWIMMER IN IRREVERSIBLE SITCOM
ABC is also preparing sitcom IRREVERSIBLE in which FRIENDS' star David Schwimmer  will play a part of a somewhat eccentric, self-absorbed love couple, and the story will follow their trials and tribulations — most of which they bring upon themselves. David and Jennifer Aniston are the only members of the old sitcom who haven't head a new show of their own later on.

EZEKIEL MOSS PERIOD DRAMA
AMY ADAMS, JAKE GYLLENHAAL
Our favourite American actress, the sweetest Amy Adams, who is nominated for an Oscar this year again, will head the cast of period set drama EZEKIEL MOSS! She will be joined by Jake Gyllenhaal in this prohibition era movie which was supposed to be directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman who died earlier this weekend. Amy Adams will play Iris, an emotionally distraught woman living in the wake of her husband's death. While running a small town boarding school where religion rules and sin is forbidden, she gets into an affair with a mysterious stranger (Jake Gyllenhaal) who wanders into town, only to discover that he has the ability to channel and physically inhabit the dead.

  4. Oh my gosh! It is so strange to read Timothy Omundson is playing a king. I'm so used to seeing him on Psych. It makes sense it's a comedy though.
