RYAN REYNOLDS HEARS 'THE VOICES' OF EVIL CAT & BENEVOLENT DOG! RUFUS SEWELL TO LEAD NEW ABC TV SERIES! NEW 'GRACE OF MONACO' TRAILER WITH NICOLE KIDMAN

RYAN REYNOLDS
WILL HEAR 'THE VOICES'
Most of us probably hear voices in our heads from time to time, but to hear the voices of your cat and dog telling you nasty things, that is certainly a call for alarm: Lionsgate has just bought distribution rights for  Ryan Reynolds' movie THE VOICES which also features Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick. It is a genre-bending film which centres around Jerry, a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for the attention of a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden turn, we follow Jerry's perspective as his talking pets, a sinister cat and benevolent dog, lead him down a fantastical, murderous path. The movie is directed by Marjane Satrapi who was nominated for an Oscar for PERSEPOLIS.

RUFUS SEWELL
TOPLINES NEW ABC SERIES
And here's another of the gents my ladies like: Rufus Sewell will take the lead in ABC’s Richard LaGravenese drama pilot, 'Deadline' writes. In the vein of 'Dangerous Liaisons', the untitled project is set in New York and revolves around the love and rivalry between two equally matched, powerful socialites — Philip Fitzgerald Julien (Sewell) and Margot Worth Cole — who play out their obsessive attraction and seduction of each other through their manipulation of others. You will next see Rufus in Dwayne Johnson's HERCULES THRACIAN WARS epic movie playing Autolycos the son of the messenger god Hermes.

GRACE OF MONACO
 SECOND TRAILER IS HERE
You can also check out the second trailer for GRACE OF MONACO with totally miscast Nicole Kidman. Also starring Derek Jacobi and Milo Ventimiglia and directed by Olivier Dahan, the movie takes place during the early 1960s when Grace Kelly was married to Monaco’s Prince Rainier III (equally miscast Tim Roth), and during a political dispute between the principality and France. The film will play at Cannes film festival in May.
DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON
Grace Kelly met Prince Rainier at Cannes film festival in 1955. The prince was obviously charmed by her and only a few months later he came to USA. He was in pursue of a wife since according to an old  treaty  Monaco reverts to France if their prince doesn't have an heir. Rainier met Kelly and her family, and after three days, he proposed. Kelly accepted and the families began preparing for what was to be THE WEDDING OF THE CENTURY! Kelly and her family had to provide Prince Rainier with a dowry of 2$ million in order for the marriage to go ahead. Grace came over to Monaco on a special eight day voyage with more than 80 pieces of luggage. In Monaco, more than 20,000 people lined the streets to greet the future princess consort. More than 35 seamstresses worked on her wedding gown for six weeks! After the wedding, Prince Rainier banned the screening of Kelly's films in Monaco.

  1. I hear my character's voices in my head all the time. But, never my dogs'. Right now, the voice in my head says, "Ryan Reynolds. Yummy."

  3. The Voices sounds just crazy enough to be interesting. Hopefully its played more as a darkly humorous tale, and doesn't give in to the potential absurd/slapstick element.

    As for Grace Kelly's story, that's crazy. The Prince needs her to produce an heir and save his kingdom, but expects her family to provide the 2$ million dowry for the privilege? I need him to negotiate with my boss!

    1. It will probably be darkly humorous having in mind the director.

      I'm not an expert, but I imagine that those 2 millions were probably a part of some old tradition and law according to which the prince can marry only a rich or noble woman or something. That's my guess, at least

  4. Sinister cat, benevolent dog. That fits. I enjoy Reynolds, so it's all good.

    Good casting for Princess Grace. And Kidman can act.

    1. she can act but she has no grace nor refined, tender ellegance that Grace Kelly had. She is more of a clumsy and cold diva than graceful rose Kelly was

  9. I've often wonder what my pets are thinking, but if it's anything like in The Voices, maybe it's best I don't know lol.

    On a side note, I'm sorry to hear you've got a lot of stress going on right now :( I hope things ease up for you soon! We need you to keep your heart healthy so we can keep coming here to get a daily dose of a Dezzy :)

    1. I have two cats, and methinks one is always thinking ebil thoughts and the other has unicorns and rainbows in her head :)

      Thanks, sister, I have permanent heart problems thanks to being seriously neglected as a kid, but those are things I can't fix, so I try to live with it.

    2. My pug has the unicorns and rainbows too. Well, when air isn't occupying it. You can tell when she has a though because sparks fly out of her head lol.

      Big old hugs to you Dezzy. I don't think we ever really move passed childhood traumas. We just learn to cope as best we can as adults I suppose. It sure ain't easy though!

  11. Oh wow, that is one challenging role for an actor to play (The Voices)..excited to see Ryan Reynolds in a psychological thriller and dark comedy. I'm definitely going to have Grace of Monaco in my watch list. Nicole looks the part.
