TOM HIDDLESTON TO DRIVE CHARIOTS IN NEW 'BEN HUR'? 'MORTDECAI' TRAILER WITH JOHNNY DEPP, EWAN MCGREGOR, PAUL BETTANY! JACK HUSTON JOINS LILY JAMES, SAM RILEY IN 'PRIDE AND PREJUDICES AND ZOMBIES'!

TOM HIDDLESTON 
TO BE THE NEW 'BEN HUR'?
Well, I might just faint if this casting choice becomes reality over in Hollywood: the word around Tinseltown today is that our dearly beloved thespian Tom Hiddleston is wanted for the lead role in the new movie version of BEN HUR! To be helmed by Timur Bekmambetov the historical epic film, set for February 2016, will centre on the early years of Judah BEN HUR and Messalla, who were best friends as children before the Roman Empire conquered Jerusalem. After Messalla leaves for five years to be educated, he mocks his former friend's religion, and sets up BEN HUR as the scapegoat for an accident, which causes him to be sold into slavery. Years later, BEN HUR swears to get his revenge, culminating in the legendary chariot races from the original movie! Sticking closer to the story from the book, the movie will also have a story on Jesus running parallel with the main one.

PRIDE AND PREJUDICES AND ZOMBIES ADAPTATION CASTS  
JACK HUSTON AND LILY JAMES
Another project that we've announced many times before is gaining new momentum with first casting additions: after Lily James (whom you will watch next year in CINDERELLA) and Sam Riley, PRIDE AND PREJUDICES AND ZOMBIES will now have Jack Huston too! Lily James will portray Elizabeth Bennett, Sam Riley is playing Mr. Darcy and Bella Heathcote is playing Elizabeth's sister, while Jack Huston will be Wickham in the big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel which is a zombie version of Jane Austen's novel, in which Elizabeth's quest for love is set in the time of a vicious zombie outbreak. Wickham wants to teach the zombies how to fight, winning Elizabeth over with his theories on the undead soldiers.

'MORTDECAI' TRAILER 
 JOHNNY DEPP, EWAN MCGREGOR, PAUL BETTANY AND 
GWYNETH PALTROW
The first trailer for Johnny Depp's adventure MORTDECAI has been released!  Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumoured to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold. Set for February 2015 release, the movie also stars Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany, Gwyneth Paltrow and Olivia Munn! Check out Depp with a truly horrible British accent below:

  1. Bad accent or not, MORTDECAI should be funny. But then, what I can I say, I like Johnny Depp.:)

    2. I got over Depp some time ago. What at first was a novelty has quickly become a predictable boor.

    3. yep, sometimes I wonder if he can actually act or is just hiding behind the very same characters he always portrays....

  2. I shall probably faint too if Hiddleston takes that role. When Tom finds us in our faint, he will gently wipe the sweat from our brows and return us to consciousness with a sweet kiss :0)

    2. I hope they cast someone delicious for us. Then it will be like a Hunk sundae. All we'll need is a spoon and some whipped cream 0)

    3. especially since Hiddles has chemistry with his on screen partners all the time. There was deep love between him and Chris Hunksworth in THOR :)

  3. Well, you know I'd like EVERY movie to star Tom Hiddleston so I guess that's all I have to say.

  5. I shall be putting MORTDECAI at the very top of films to watch! Looks brilliant!

    And I disagree about Johnny Depp's British accent. It sounds contrived and OTT (over the top), but I suspect it's supposed to. Anyway, who cares about his accent :)

  6. Ben Hur with Tom Hiddleston should rock!
    Depp is Depp, I like him well enough.

  7. It will be interesting comparing the old and the new Ben Hur.
    Little concerned about P and P and Zombies. I so didn't care for Abraham Lincoln the Vampire Slayer.
    Johnny D as always should be fun.

  8. Honey, we don't watch Depp for his acting abilities. Short of Sean Connery, he's the only other one I'd leave my hubs for ;)

    3. that's what his wife tried to do, but then she realized the scum is inside not just outside :)... and then he left her and their kids for that lesbian lover of his :)

  10. What's funny is that picture of the actor is the polar opposite of how he would look playing Ben Hur! It's messing with my head!
