According to 'Deadline' he will join the movie adaptation of Seth Grahame Smith's parody novel PRIDE AND PREJUDICES AND ZOMBIES. He will play Bingley. L, the good natured and wealthy friend of Mr Darcy! In the zombie version of Jane Austen's novel, Elizabeth Bennett's (Lily James) quest for love is set in the time of a vicious zombie outbreak. Wickham (Jack Huston) wants to teach the zombies how to fight, winning Elizabeth over with his theories on the undead soldiers. Sam Riley is playing Mr. Darcy and Bella Heathcote is playing Elizabeth's sister!

GUY PEARCE TO GO GAY
IN 'HOLDING THE MAN' MOVIE
According to 'Screen Daily' Guy Pearce, Antony LaPaglia and Kerry Fox will star in the big screen adaptation of HOLDING THE MAN bestselling memoirs by Australian writer Timothy Conigrave which won United Nations Human Rights award in the 90's and which was published only a few months after his death. It starts in 1976, when Timothy Conigrave fell in love with the captain of his High School football team. So began a relationship that was to last for 15 years, a love affair that weathered disapproval, separation and, ultimately death. With honesty and insight, HOLDING THE MAN explores the highs and lows of their life partnership: the intimacy, constraints, temptations, and the strength of heart both men had to find when they tested positive to HIV.

  5. Point of Honor (sorry, had to use the American spelling of HONOR since it's the American Civil War and all, LOL), reminds of North & South. That was a pretty amazing mini series!
