GORGEOUS 'LITTLE PRINCE' ANIMATED TRAILER WITH MARION COTILLARD, JEFF BRIDGES, RICKY GERVAIS! JUSTIN LONG TO LEAD ABC SITCOM 'IRREVERSIBLE'! 'TOMB RAIDER' TO GET MINI TV SERIES

JUSTIN LONG TO LEAD
 'IRREVERSIBLE' SITCOM AT ABC
In today's TV news, 'Deadline' reports that Justin Long will take the lead role in IRREVERSIBLE comedy pilot at ABC! The sitcom centres on Andy and Sarah, a somewhat eccentric, self absorbed couple, and their trials and tribulations — most of which they bring upon themselves. The project was also done as pilot last year with David Schwimmer but wasn't picked up, so this is its second chance.

'TOMB RAIDER' MINI TV SERIES
It was also revealed today that famous video game TOMB RAIDER will be done in the form of television mini series serving as a prequel to the upcoming 'Rise of the Tomb Raider' game, and eventual movie, which will take players to multiple locations around the world, filled with exploration spaces that are described as some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth.

'THE LITTLE PRINCE'
NEW ANIMATED TRAILER!
The first trailer has been released for animated adaptation of THE LITTLE PRINCE which will come out next Autumn with voices from Marion Cotillard, Jeff Bridges, Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti and Ricky Gervais! In the film an old pilot tells a little girl the story of how he crash-landed in the Sahara Desert where he came across a young boy that claimed to be a prince from his home on an asteroid. During his time repairing the downed aircraft, the young boy told him stories about the foolish inhabitants surrounding his asteroid. The plot around the pilot and the girl will be CGI animated, while THE LITTLE PRINCE story is done by stop motion!

  1. Hmm, a bit boring today Dezzy. Well, with the storms here on the west coast perhaps its a good thing so I can snuggle up with a good book.

  3. The Little Prince Looks cute. I hope there will be English subtitles. Otherwise I'm going to have to do a crash course on learning French. (Which would be a good excuse to knock that off my bucket list!)

  4. I'm always up for more Tomb Raider - any idea who Lara Croft will be played by this time?

    1. they don't have the actress yet, it is only a preproduction. The author of the game announced it so it is not official :)

  5. I can see why they added the whole side story of the girl to "Le Petit Prince" to up the gender balance from the original story, but I hope it doesn't detract from the significance of the main story.

  6. I like Justin Long. Watched him on the BREAKUP last night. He played quite a colourful, if not small, part.

    Oh, and the LITTLE PRINCE trailer doesn't work :(

  7. David Schwimmer? He was annoying enough on Friends but carrying a show by himself? Yikes. I'm glad they chose someone else but I've been very disappointed in the sitcoms that have come out this year. They're all just kind of "meh."

    1. You didn't like Ross? I always thought he was the best actor in FRIENDS because he totally went into his character with expressions, mimics, movements, totally! My fave after Monica and Chandler :)
      It's true all of this year's new sitcoms were godawful. I even watched MULANEY's first episode after you mentioned it and fell asleep after first ten minutes :) Also gave up on MCCARTHYS, MARRY ME and the cancelled ones. But the good news is that the best sitcoms usually come in winter or spring season not Autumn one.

  9. David Schwimmer of 'Friends' fame? - hmm, Justin Long looks like he could be his son! I've never played Tomb Raider - might check that out. The Little Prince is going to be a charmer - right up my alley!! I love cartoon thingys.
