CHANNING TATUM
TO HELM AND STAR IN 'THE SON'
Young star Channing Tatum might star and also direct the movie adaptation of THE SON novel by Jo Nesbo which will be released in USA this May! The story centres on a young man who is in prison for confessing to crimes he didn't commit.

JANE FONDA AND LILY TOMLIN ARE 'GRACE AND FRANKIE'
And here's a great casting: Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin will play GRACE AND FRANKIE in a 2015 Netflix sitcom from FRIENDS creator Marta Kauffman in which they will portray two long-time rivals who find their lives undesirably intertwined when their two husbands announce their love for each other.

ZHANG YIMOU TO HELM
'THE GREAT WALL' EPIC FILM
A project which has been postponed has gotten a new director: instead of Ed Zwick THE GREAT WALL epic movie will now be helmed by Zhang Yimou (CURSE OF THE GOLDEN FLOWER, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS)! Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker were previously meant to play  two British soldiers travelling through 15th Century China, who witness the Great Wall of China's construction. They learn that the Chinese are not building the wall to keep out the invading Mongol forces, but to keep an evil supernatural force at bay.
MAGGIE Q & DYLAN MCDERMOTT IN NEW CBS SHOW

Detective Beth Davis is the opinionated and obsessive, workaholic Division Captain of LAPD’s Threat Assessment Unit who also narrates the story. As you know Maggie will also star in RED FLAG historical mini series playing a Chinese pirate queen!

'THE GIVER' TRAILER!
MERYL STREEP, TAYLOR SWIFT,  BRENTON THWAITES, JEFF BRIDGES
The first trailer for the big screen movie adaptation of science fiction young adult novel THE GIVER by Lois Lowry has been released! Starring Meryl Streep, Taylor Swift, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgard and Jeff Bridges, and hitting theatres this August, the movie is set in a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, a world where pain, suffering and emotion have been eradicated after society converts to "Sameness". A boy called Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) is selected to become the community's next "Receiver of Memory", the person who holds all past memories.

  1. Jeff Bridges has always been a good actor. He has seemed to get better as he has aged.

    1. he is certainly in bigger demand these days, but it is kinda sad seeing all those older actors selling themselves in cheap YA movies or HARRY PLOPPER :(

    2. HA! I will admit I have never watched the Plopper movies.

    3. I tried the first one and fell asleep five times but the number of refined older thespians in it is shocking. They shouldn't sell themselves in such ways :( Even Kate Winslet has gone to star in DIVERGENT :(

  4. I'm excited about The Giver, and the same time biting my nails - I hope they make it good and stick to some of the book, at least.

  5. It seems odd to have Taylor Swift in a movie with veteran, Meryll Streep. Is this Swift's first movie appearance?

  6. The Giver-that "life lesson" has been told and retold in books and movies so many times, it's almost become trite. I've not read the books, but as it's YA I'm skeptical. I like the actors though, so maybe it will be worth a watch.

    I'm more interested in The Great Wall

  12. A world without pain (I like that), suffering (good plan) and emotion (WHAT!)... sounds like a familiar place.
