 JUDE LAW IS 'GENIUS'
WITH COLIN FIRTH & NICOLE KIDMAN
Earlier this weekend it was announced that Jude Law will replace Michael Fassbender in a role in GENIUS, a biopic drama (in which he will play literary icon Thomas Wolfe) which will also star Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman! The big screen adaptation of A. Scott Berg's biography 'Max Perkins: Editor of Genius', the new movie tells the story of Perkins (Colin Firth), a renowned book editor at Scribner who worked with literary giants F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway and Thomas Wolfe. The plot will mostly focus on the relationship between Perkins and Wolfe. You can currently watch Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman together in THE RAILWAY MAN, while Jude Law is currently filming SPY comedy with Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham and Rose Byrne, in which McCarthy plays an unlikely international spy while Statham is her reluctant partner!

 NEW EPIC SHOWS AT ITV
'STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLL & MR HYDE' AND 'BEOWULF'
In the news from UK, ITV has announced that they are developing two new 13 episode historical shows: THE STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE and the more epic BEOWULF! The later one will be produced by WALKING WITH DINOSAURS' producer Tim Haines! They are currently searching for international distribution deals before starting productions.
CARA DELEVIGNE IN 17TH CENTURY 'TULIP FEVER'
Speaking of UK, British model Cara Delevigne is stepping over to the movie world. Not only that she might take a role next to Amanda Seyfried, Hugh Jackman and Garrett Hedlund in PAN, but she will also star in WeinsteinCo's sweeping period drama TULIP FEVER! Dane DeHaan, Christoph Waltz and Alicia Vikander are already starring in the 17th century drama directed by Justin Chadwick! The 17th century romance follows an artist who falls for a married young woman while he's commissioned to paint her portrait. The two invest in the risky tulip market in hopes to build a future together.

  5. So will BEOWULF be animated, or live action?

    1. a scripted live action TV series, but it still just an announcement, nothing for sure!

    2. With the WALKING WITH DINOSAURS' producer, I thought that it would be animated. I would much rather see a live action show.

    3. British televisions don't do animated shows

    4. ITV will probably try to rival BBC's usually strong family Saturday evenings when BBC is airing ATLANTIS.

  8. I agree with Sherry. Most models can't act their way out of a paper bag. Just cause you're pretty doesn't mean you can act. We shall see how this one does.

  11. Genius is going to be great. What a story and a fine cast. Can you imagine have had to handle all those writers? They drank like it was a sport in those days and those three men had some serious mental issues. That was a great period of American Literature in my opinion.

    1. not to mention that most of those early 20th century writers were utterly mad and crazy not to mention delusional and nuts....

      Delete
    2. They were mad as hatters and full of themselves as well. They turned out some great work, but I wouldn't have wanted to party with any of them.

    3. I had nightmares when I had to do ENGLISH WRITERS OF THE 20TH CENTURY and FEMALE WRITERS OF THE 20TH CENTURY courses at college...... The horror......
