RYAN REYNOLDS JOINS HELEN MIRREN IN 'THE WOMAN IN GOLD'! TOM HARDY IN BBC'S NEW HISTORICAL 19TH CENTURY SERIES 'TABOO'! FIRST 'THE ANGRIEST MAN IN BROOKLYN' TRAILER WITH ROBIN WILLIAMS, MILA KUNIS

TOM HARDY IN BBC'S NEW
HISTORICAL TV SERIES 'TABOO'
Here's yet another interesting historical TV series we can look forward to: Tom Hardy has been hired to topline BBC's new historical series TABOO a 19th century drama to be shot in eight episodes! The story will be set in 1813, and is centred around an adventurer who returns to England from Africa along with 14 stolen diamonds, while seeking revenge over the death of his father. He refuses to sell the family business to the East India Company, and aims to build his own trade empire, before finding himself involved in a battle between Britain and America. Planned as a flagship British drama produced by Ridley Scott, it will be a hybrid of orthodox and unconventional storytelling, packed with darkness and spirited characters! The shooting of the epic series will start next January.

'THE WOMAN IN GOLD'
RYAN REYNOLDS & HELEN MIRREN
After a whole week spent on lovely Hollywood ladies, we're focusing on something more hunky for my female readers today: according to 'Deadline' Ryan Reynolds has joined the cast of THE WOMAN IN GOLD movie which I announced some time ago when it was revealed that Helen Mirren will take the lead part of Maria Altmann, who was a Jewish survivor of World War II and who took action against the Austrian government to retrieve multiple stolen Gustav Klimt paintings which belonged to her family together with the famous THE WOMAN IN GOLD. Ryan Reynolds will portray her lawyer while Daniel Bruhl will be the legal representative of the state of Austria.


ANGRIEST MAN IN BROOKLYN
ROBIN WILLIAMS AND MILA KUNIS IN THE FIRST TRAILER
Our last trailer this working week is the first one for THE ANGRIEST MAN IN BROOKLYN a drama starring Robin Williams as Henry Altmann who is having a horrible day, made much worse by his visit with Dr. Sharon Gill, who abruptly informs him that he only has 90 minutes to live. After storming out of the hospital in disbelief, Henry panics and races through Brooklyn in an attempt to right all of the wrongs in his life, while Sharon desperately scrambles to find him and get him into surgery! Releasing anger onto streets this May, the movie also stars Mila Kunis and James Earl Jones!

    1. I would imagine so.... I felt sad for Robin's character in the film. Imagine if we was dying and nobody cared about it :( So sad....

    2. Sad, very sad. Well, we could blog about it this the very end. I hope.

      Ryan Reynolds... I like the guy even though I can't bear to watch most of his movies. That's a problem.

  2. "The Woman in Gold" sounds terrific -- love both Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds! Stolen Nazi art seems to be a hot topic in movies right now.

    1. I really had to give my ladies some abs after the whole week of gorgeous actresses :) Is that a new avatar pic for you? :)

    2. We like the actresses too. And, yeah, I always change my avatar picture after a holiday. :))

      Spent four days in California and then came home to snow and cold. Still not spring in Colorado. :(

  6. Angiest Man sounds interesting, but it kind of been done before by Michael Douglas (although I suspect this will be played more for laughs).

    1. I'm interested to see how England had spread death and suffering in their Colonial era, maybe the series will open eyes to some people today as well.

  8. The Angriest Man in Brooklyn looks okay. Although, the premise is a bit far fetched. But hey, that's Hollywood :)

    1. it's true. I hope he will turn to more dramatic roles, because he has the talent for it. There is a very genuine warmth in him when he does emotional roles and scenes. He needs to use that and ditch comedies and action movies.

  10. THE ANGRIEST MAN IN BROOKLYN would be a tought contest

    2. That's what I said, Adam. You're not stealing my thunder, are you? If I lived in Brooklyn, I'd be so angry.

      Delete
    3. why are people in Brooklyn angry, Blue?

      Delete
    4. Because they didn't make it to Manhatan, is why. Hello! Ever heard of Sex in Brooklyn? I don't think so. Ergo: they're angry. Makes perfect sense in my book.

      Delete
    5. there's no sex in Brooklyn? Because all the men are in Manhattan? If it's so I wouldn't wanna live in Brooks!

  11. The Angriest Man in Brooklyn looks like it will have some funny moments as well as a few sad ones. Ryan Reynolds as a lawyer will be interesting.
