NEW 'MACBETH' IMAGE WITH MICHAEL FASSBENDER & MARION COTILLARD! STEVEN SPIELBERG TO ADAPT ROALD DAHL'S 'BIG FRIENDLY GIANT'! CHACE CRAWFORD IN 'ELOISE' THRILLER

 NEW 'MACBETH' IMAGE
MICHAEL FASSBENDER AND MARION COTILLARD
Your main visual treat for today is a brand new picture coming from the set of the new big screen adaptation of William Shakespeare's MACBETH historical drama! Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard are in the lead roles of ambitious Lord and Lady Macbeth!

 STEVEN SPIELBERG HELMS
DAHL'S BIG FRIENDLY GIANT
We've mentioned Steven Spielberg and his possible plans recently, but it seems that he will go into the fantasy genre helming the movie adaptation of Roald Dahl's BFG which stands for The Big Friendly Giant! It is a story of a lovable, dream-hunting giant and Sophie, the little girl who first spots him through the window of the orphanage where she lives. She befriends the gentle giant, and when she hears that the other evil giants are descending upon England, she enlists BFG’s help to thwart them. Spielberg will do this one after he finishes directing Tom Hanks in an untitled Cold War thriller!

 CHACE CRAWFORD IN
ELOISE MOVIE THRILLER
In a totally opposite genre - the genre of horrors, 'Deadline' reports that Chace Crawford and Eliza Dushku will star in psychological thriller ELOISE. The intriguing plot is set in a defunct insane asylum known as ELOISE! Four friends break into the abandoned institution in hopes of finding a death certificate, which will provide Jacob (Chace Crawford) with the rights to a sizable inheritance. While inside the asylum, the group not only finds that the institution houses a horrifying history but also the truth about their own tragic pasts.
DID YOU KNOW?
The movie will be shot in Detroit's Eloise Insane Asylum which was one of the largest mental institutions in the world. Built as one building in 1832, it rapidly grew into a 78 building self-sustained city with its own fire and police departments, train station, post office and farms. Eloise closed its doors in 1982, and has since been dormant and left to ruin.

  1. Oh, yes! Macbeth is looking dark and brooding, just the way I like him.

    And I watched 12 Years a Slave the other night. Fassbender played a horrible, disgusting man in it, but of course he did it brilliantly. Will look forward to his Macbeth. :)

    1. I'm still rooting for the two of us to get the roles of the cauldron cooking witches :) I'd die happy if that could happen :)
      I watched SNOWPIERCER last night with Chris Evans and Octavia Spencer, I think you would like the writing in that one, it's very intriguing and engaging, although it ends badly...

  2. Oh yes indeed. Looking forward to Macbeth for sure.

    That's an interesting choice for Speilberg, a Ronald Dahl book. I'm betting he read Dahl when he was a child.

    1. Hope it will be highly stylized, dear! I love when they put an artistic touch into Shakespearean adaptations.

    2. Did you see the stage production with David Tennent? It was the most unusual production I've ever seen and it took a while to get into it. But it was very interesting. I saw it on the Netflix.

  5. Roald Dahl is my MOST FAVORITE writer. His granddaughter Sophie (who he named the little girl in the book after), has her own cookery show.

      I don't know if that link will work for you, but if so, you can check her out. She has her grandfather's passion. Wonderful to see.

  7. Macbeth looks interesting. I have a number of Roald Dahl's books on audio. I need to listen to them. With Spielberg involved, it should be good.

    3. pull yourself together, man! Most of US kids writers aren't really known around the world.... Seuss, Dahl.... just to name a few

    4. Dahl? The British guy via Norway? ;)

    5. he's from Norway and Britain? 'Tis the same.... British, American... popular in their own realms....

  9. Steven Spielberg, don't go anywhere near Dahl's beautiful stories, please. First you messed up TinTin and now you want to make an adaptation of the BFG? Go adapt your own ideas or draw a dinosaur. Could you do that for me?

  10. Those two look like they'll be awesome in Macbeth.

    I loved The BFG.

  11. Awe, yeah! I loved the BFG book when I was a kid. I can't wait to see it in movie form! Whoo Hoo!

  12. Eloise-a horror film based on an actual existing place is definitely scary. Not sure if I'm brave enough to watch it. The story line sounds interesting. Wow, Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth is a must see

  16. Damn, Dezz. I wasn't kidding when I said Shakespeare is violent... I just saw Macbeth... The first few minutes are horrible.
