EDDIE REDMAYNE OR NICHOLAS HOULT TO LEAD 'FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM' ADAPTATION! SONY TO ADAPT STEPHEN KING'S DARK TOWER' EPIC SAGA INTO MOVIE AND SERIES

EDDIE REDMAYNE TO LEAD
 'FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM' ADAPTATION?
The main movie news today comes from 'Variety': fresh Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne is apparently the lead candidate for the lead role in Harry Plopper spinoff FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM scheduled for November 2016. J.K. Rowling is also writing the script for the Warner Bros. upcoming trilogy. Beside him, director David Yates is allegedly considering Nicholas Hoult as well. Set in New York roughly seven decades before Harry Potter’s saga starts, the story is based on the Hogwarts textbook and follows the adventures of its author, Newt Scamander. Scamander is described as a “magiczoologist,” which is a person who studies magical creatures. Redmayne could easily win his second Oscar in a row next year for playing one of the first people who underwent a sex change operation in Tom Hooper's THE DANISH GIRL

SONY SPEEDS UP 'DARK TOWER'
STEPHEN KING ADAPTATION
Over the recent years there were many efforts to turn Stephen King's DARK TOWER saga into a movie franchise, but now it seems that Sony is finally speeding it up teaming with Media Rights Capital to produce the movie adaptation along with a TV series as well. The story follows a lone gunman Roland Deschain, who sets off on a journey to find THE DARK TOWER, a magical portal to other worlds. The movie will be based on the first book in the series, THE GUNSLINGER, which describes Roland's relationship with a young boy named Jake, who is from a different time and place. Ron Howard was previously set to direct the film with Javier Bardem and Russell Crowe being in the run for the lead role.

  5. At this point I don't really expect The Dark Tower to ever hit the screen, but it is nice to dream.

  8. Mariah will be eagerly awaiting the Potter movies. My mom bought her the $40 book for Christmas and it was her favorite gift.

    I haven't read The Dark Tower yet, but I do love me some Stephen King. However, Under the Dome series really sucked, in my opinion, so I am not sure I will be excited for this one to turn into a series.

    1. it was that expensive?
      I watched only the first DOME season and didn't care to watch the second one... it was a tad too boring for me

  9. Yes, but it was a really heavy book filled with a lot of content that she loved. I'd say worth the price.

    You got further than I did on Dome. I only went 3 episodes before declaring the series crap and moved on to something else.
