VIN DIESEL'S 'THE LAST WITCH HUNTER' GETS MICHAEL CAINE, ROSE LESLIE, ELIJAH WOOD! HUGH BONNEVILLE IS PIRATE KING IN 'GALAVANT' MUSICAL HISTORICAL SERIES! 'FROZEN'S' JENNIFER LEE TO ADAPT 'A WRINKLE IN TIME' BOOK!

THE LAST WITCH HUNTER
VIN DIESEL JOINED BY MICHAEL CAINE AND ELIJAH WOOD
In the news from our favourite epic front, fantasy adventure THE LAST WITCH HUNTER, in which Vin Diesel is playing the lead role, is rounding up its cast: after Michael Caine and GAME OF THRONES' Rose Leslie, they now have Elijah Wood as well. To be released in 2016 under Breck Eisner's helm and written by Matt Sazama (DRACULA UNTOLD, GODS OF EGYPT), the movie will see Vin Diesel starring as the title character, a witch hunter who partners with his long-time enemy (Rose Leslie) in order to stop the evil covens of New York City from unleashing a plague on humanity.

HUGH BONNEVILLE IS
PIRATE KING IN 'GALAVANT' HISTORICAL MUSICAL COMEDY 
Only yesterday, I told you that John Stamos will guest star in ABC's upcoming historical musical comedy series GALAVANT as a knight, and now it has been announced that DOWNTON ABBEY's Hugh Bonneville will also appear in the series which will see Joshua Sasse playing a pompous prince Galavant who embarks on different adventures in order to get his revenge against King Galahad (Timothy Omundson) who has stolen his one true love. Bonneville will play Peter the Pillager, a Pirate King who Prince Galavant encounters on his journey! The show will feature hilarious songs from legendary Oscar winning composer Alan Menken.

'A WRINKE IN TIME' TO BE
 ADAPTED BY 'FROZEN'S' HELMER
Jennifer Lee, who directed Disney's FROZEN which has become the highest grossing animated movie in history, will now helm the big screen adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's bestselling kids book A WRINKLE IN TIME. This science fantasy novel revolves around a young girl named Meg Murry whose father is a government scientist. He goes missing after working on a mysterious project called a tesseract. Meg and her three brothers then travel through time to find their dad.

  4. That's such a great pic of Elijah Wood. I saw him over the Fantasy Con weekend and he looked... rough, super casual. He's nice though. =D

  6. The Last Witch Hunter sounds great I shall have to forget to tell the other half that Michael Caine is in it as she's not keen on him for some reason!

    1. Caine can be a bit annoying, especially in his younger years :)

  7. GALAVANT sounds rather good. Like Hugh Bonneville :)

  8. Oh, that New York City is always trying to release plagues on humanity. Thank goodness we have Vin to save us.

  9. Not sure about the Last Witch Hunter although I do like Vinn. A Wrinkle in Time could be very cool so I'll be looking for that :)

  10. I'm actually surprised it's taken them this long to adapt A WRINKLE IN TIME into a movie.

  11. I LOVED Wrinkle in Time. I need to reread it. I remember writing my own Wrinkle in Time story when I was in jr. high for fun! Can't believe it took this long to be made into a movie!

  12. I had the biggest crush on Elija Wood when I was little. I remember seeing him in The War and thought he was going to turn out to be oh, so dreamy. Instead, we got Frodo lol. Oh well, he's still kinda cute in a boyish way. And the movie does sound interesting, so I'll still catch it :)

    1. he did lose all of his potential charms with that godawful WILFRED show and with his quirky taste in roles

      Delete
    2. Ugh! Wilfred was the absolute worst! Someone recommended we watch it, and I sat there for 3 episodes going wtf? Needless to say, we don't take show recommendations from that person anymore!

      Delete
    3. it took only five minutes of watching for me to realize it's a disgusting heap of television crap, especially since I positively despise that type of humour

  13. They've got plenty of time to tease us with The Last Witch Hunter. 2016 is LOOOONG wait for a movie.

    Oh yes, A Wrinkle In Time was very popular as a book. There will be high expectations from the fans on this one.

    1. Indeed it is, dear, but then again we had movies announced here as far as 2019 :)

    2. I know. Movieland starts pimping them too soon methinks.

    3. the way things are progressing in Tinseltown, a trend to be expected are movies which are written, shot and released in less than a year. We already have movies which start production only eight months before the release.

  14. Little Elija is growing up and Vin as a witch hunter. An interesting selection today. Galavant still looks like it will be hilarious.
