SIENNA MILLER IN JANE AUSTEN ADAPTATION OF 'LADY SUSAN'! 'MAKE YOUR MOVE' BEAUTIFUL TRAILER WITH DEREK HOUGH & BOA! 'TAMMY' COMEDY TRAILER WITH MELISSA MCCARTHY, SUSAN SARANDON

SIENNA MILLER IS LADY SUSAN
IN JANE AUSTEN'S 'LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP'
Digital Spy reports that British actress Sienna Miller will take the lead role in the new adaptation of a Jane Austen novel. Her book LADY SUSAN will get a big screen adaptation titled LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP. The comedy drama will be directed by Whit Stillman and will see Sienna playing Lady Susan, a widow who searches for a husband for herself and one for her daughter. The cast will also include Chloe Sevigny. The movie is to be shot in Irish countryside this summer.

DEZZY'S LITERATURE LESSON
LADY SUSAN is actually a short epistolary novel. It was published almost a hundred years after it was written because Jane Austen never really submitted it for publication.  All of Lady Susan's suitors in the novel are younger than her which is unusual for Austen who usually liked to marry off her characters to older men.

MAKE YOUR MOVE TRAILER 
WITH DEREK HOUGH AND BOA
Two trailers for you today, starting with a beautiful one for dance romantic drama MAKE YOUR MOVE which will move into theatres this March starring ballroom dancer Derek Hough, pop singer BoA and Will Yun Lee as a pair of star-crossed dancers in New York who find themselves at the centre of a bitter rivalry between their brothers' underground dance clubs. Filled with truly beautiful and breathtaking choreographies the film was directed by Duane Adler who wrote legendary dance movies SAVE THE LAST DANCE and STEP UP.



TAMMY COMEDY TRAILER 
 WITH MELISSA MCCARTHY
And we're ending the working week with the first trailer for TAMMY comedy starring Melissa McCarthy! Coming to cinemas this July it follows Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) who is having a bad day. She's totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbour in her own house. It's time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she's broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), is her only option-with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shotgun, it may be just what Tammy needs.

    1. She's losing me as a fan too, Dave, she's becoming too crude and rude in her humour and keeps repeating herself.

  3. I'd never heard of Lady Susan before. Thanks for the lesson on that. :)

    And I still crack up at Melissa McCarthy, but you're right, she is starting to repeat herself in the same role over and over again.

    1. I haven't either, but you know how much I don't love Austen :)
      Yep, and somehow I think that her way of humour is becoming offensive to all the overweight people too, you know, the way she has to be rudely goofy instead of having a classy humour

  4. I agree with you, Dez, about Melissa McCarthy but Lady Susan looks delightful :)

  7. The problem with Melissa McCarthy is that all of her characters are the exact same. Eventually, people are going to grow tired of seeing the same thing over and over. On the other hand, maybe not. She is a funny woman.

    1. Well, if you recall Jim Carrey did the same type of comedy for about ten years and than he disappeared because everybody grew tired of it, maybe the same will happen to Melissa.

  9. Holy Christ, that picture of Sienna Miller scared the shit out of me. The first thing I thought of was "Dinosaur, flee, flee" The look in her eyes and those crazy feathers make her look like a deadly raptor :)

    1. But it is a pretty dress, still, isn't it? I think that the position of her body is a bit strange, the dress is a work of art :)

  12. Tammy looks hilarious. She drove me crazy in the film Identity Thief. She was soo good in the role I ended up hating and loving her in it.
