EMILY BLUNT IN 'SICARIO' CRIME THRILLER! 'LUCKY THEM' TRAILER WITH TONI COLLETTE! ALLISON PATAKI'S 'THE TRAITOR'S WIFE' HISTORICAL NOVEL GETS MOVIE ADAPTATION

EMILY BLUNT IN
'SICARIO' CRIME THRILLER!
After Meryl Streep, Amy Adams and Kate Winslet earlier this week we continue with the updates on our fave actresses, this time with fresh mom Emily Blunt! According to 'Variety' she is in talks to take the role in crime thriller SICARIO in which the story would revolve around a Tucson police officer who hires two mercenaries on a journey to track down a notorious drug lord in Mexico! It will be directed by Dennis Villeneuve who is also helming Amy Adams in sf movie STORY OF YOUR LIFE which I announced yesterday (Emily and Amy are actually best friends in real life). Before this, you will watch Emily Blunt in science fiction epic EDGE OF TOMORROW next to Tom Cruise this summer, and with Meryl Streep and Chris Pine in INTO THE WOODS fantasy fairy tale musical this Autumn.

'THE TRAITOR'S WIFE'
BIG SCREEN ADAPTATION
If you're in the mood for big screen book adaptations here's one for you: 'Deadline' reports that Allison Pataki's bestselling novel THE TRAITOR'S WIFE will be turned into a film. The story follows Benedict Arnold’s historical betrayal of Gen. George Washington. But behind the most notorious turncoat of the American Revolutionary War was a wife half his age who orchestrated the whole thing. Peggy Shippen Arnold was a beautiful socialite with a loyalty to the British that led her to exploit her husband’s disillusionment into a scandalous move. Washington learned of the plot when British Major John Andre was caught with Arnold’s traitorous documents in his boot. While Andre was hanged, Arnold fled and became a Brigadier General for the Brits.

'LUCKY THEM' TRAILER
 WITH TONI COLLETTE
And here's yet another of our favourite actresses - Toni Collette: the first trailer for her LUCKY THEM movie has been released announcing the film which comes out May 30th! More interested in partying and flirting with young musicians than work, veteran rock journalist Ellie Klug (Toni Collette) has one last chance to prove her value to her magazine's editor: a no-stone-unturned search to discover what really happened to long lost rock god Matthew Smith, who also happens to be her ex-boyfriend. Teaming up with an eccentric amateur documentary filmmaker (Thomas Haden Church), Ellie hits the road in search of answers.

  1. If you didn't have Church's name there, I might not have known the image was him. But probably once I played the video.

    Made organic beet root powder today. Well, almost powder. It will be soon as I pound it. But I tried the pulp from juicing and wow, so flippin' good.

    1. I didn't even put an image of him in the post :P I generally don't know him.
      Oooh, glad you used my idea. You can use it to colour your cakes, both sweet and savoury ones, rolls, pancakes, even your waffles :)

    2. In the video, where it stopped. That image. Didn't know it was him. Unless that's not him.

      When I make my pink heart-shaped dough I will link back to your post. Using beet root powder is a great idea but have you seen the prices for the organic stuff?

      Ouch. Way too rich for my blood. So I had to try and make my own. Best part, none of the veg goes to waste.

      Waffles????? That's brilliant. Oh my gosh. Thanks for that idea. If I ever get a heart-shaped waffle iron I will link back to you.

      I saw the machine once but couldn't let myself buy it. Too high. But it was a nice machine.

    3. You might even make rainbow waffles colouring it with beet, green tea or something else :)

  5. I love Amy Adams, Kate Winslet and Emily Blunt but... they don't like me. I'm not a fan of drug related movies much this one I'll check out.

  7. Hi human, DEZMOND,

    I've no doubt you've been eagerly waiting for one of my highly collectable comments. Good human, your wait is over.

    My alleged human wants to see Sicario. Especially if James Blunt, sorry, Emily Blunt was in it. And no mention of what Blunt might rhyme with :)
