LIONSGATE TO ADAPT JASON MOTT'S 'THE WONDER OF ALL THINGS'! HISTORICAL NAVAL BATTLES IN 'ROARING CURRENTS' EPIC TRAILER! ELLEN POMPEO ADAPTATING 'DEBT' FOR TV. ED HELMS PRODUCING 'BIG KIDS' SITCOM

THE WONDER OF ALL THINGS
BY JASON MOTT GETS BIG SCREEN MOVIE ADAPTATION
First piece of news, on this slow beginning of a new week, comes from Lionsgate which bought the rights on Jason Mott's novel THE WONDER OF ALL THINGS. ABC recently shot a show based on his first novel THE RETURNED, but this new one starts when a pilot loses control of his plane during an air show and crashes into the stands, and two 13-year-old best friends, Wash and Ava, get trapped beneath the rubble. They are found by rescuers, but Wash is seriously injured, a chunk of steel protruding from his belly. Ava tries to help him by pulling free the metal, but blood rushes out and he’s dying. She panics and puts her hands on the wound, crying. When she pulls her hands away, the wound is gone, healed without a scar. Rescuers captured the miracle on their cell phone cameras. It goes up on YouTube, and she becomes the centre of attention from media, scientists, and religious leaders.

TELEVISION HEADLINES
ELLEN POMPEO TO ADAPT 'DEBT' NOVEL FOR SMALL SCREENS
In today's TV news  ABC Family will develop TV series together with Ellen Pompeo based on Rachel Carey's novel DEBT. A satirical look on 2008 New York financial meltdown, the novel tells the story of a 20-something writer who works as a tutor to pay off her college loans and uncovers how all of the people she knows are in someone's debt.
'BIG KIDS' NEW TV SITCOM
NBC is, meanwhile, developing new comedy series with Ed Helms producing. Titled BIG KIDS, the new sitcom centres on Andy, a young professional with a messiah complex who is constantly trying to control and “fix” his little sister and their young, blue-collar parents.

ADMIRAL: ROARING CURRENTS
 16TH CENTURY NAVAL BATTLES
We saw some truly magnificent sea battles earlier this year in 300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE, and if you're in the mood for some more naval fights you can see them in Korean blockbuster THE ADMIRAL: ROARING CURRENTS which is currently breaking box-office records over in Asia. Set in the 16th century this historical action epic, filled with mindblowing ship battles and naval tactics,  directed by Han-min Kim, portrays the glorious historic Battle of Myeongnyang on the south western coast of the Korean peninsula in which just 12 Korean battleships and an army of doubtful soldiers bravely faced 330 Japanese battleships. Check out the trailer below. The movie will hit USA screens later this year too.

  2. I realy liked the trailer for The Admiral : Roaring Currents. The music sounded great too. I always have a spot for the Non-English films.

  5. even though his battle was impressive, his diary entries are really brief. Last day of it he just wrote "Bad weather".
