ANNIE LEIBOVITZ PHOTOGRAPHS 'STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS' CAST FOR 'VANITY FAIR'! SAM WORTHINGTON JOINS OCTAVIA SPENCER IN 'THE SHACK'! 'ALBION: RISE OF DANANN' SF MOVIE WITH DEBRA MESSING, LIAM MCINTYRE, STEPHEN DORFF, JENNIFER MORRISON, JOHN CLEESE

SAM WORTHINGTON TO VISIT
OCTAVIA SPENCER IN 'THE SHACK'
Sometime ago I announced that one of world's bestselling books William Paul Young's THE SHACK is getting a movie adaptation and earlier last winter we announced that Octavia Spencer will play the God in it, and now 'Empire' reports that Australian hunk Sam Worthington has joined the movie in the lead role as a man whose youngest daughter is kidnapped during a family holiday. Evidence turns up in an abandoned shack to suggest she was murdered, which stymies the case. But then, four years later, he receives a note, apparently from God, inviting him to go back to the ruined building. He accepts, against his better judgement, and what he finds there changes his life forever.

'ALBION:RISE OF DANANN' 
WITH DEBRA MESSING, LIAM MCINTYRE, STEPHEN DORFF AND JOHN CLEESE
Well, this is quite a strong cast for a film we've never heard of before and it shoots this month! 'Deadline' reports that  John Cleese and Debra Messing have joined the cast of fantasy film ALBION: RISE OF THE DANANN, in which Cleese will play the villian, a tyrannical leader of Albion while Messing will portray the queen. SPARTACUS star Liam McIntyre and Daniel Sharman also star in the film about a 12-year-old girl (Avery Rath) who is carried away to a faraway land on a magical horse. Stephen Dorff will portray her father, while Jennifer Morrison appears as a psychologically fractured woman in the alternate universe.

STARS POSE FOR 'VANITY FAIR'!
May the 4th truly be with you! Oh, my, does Vanity Fair have a treat for all of you STAR WAR fans! In the latest issue they feature a bunch of new photos from STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS showing not just Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and everybody's favourite Chewbacca, but also a bunch of new aliens that will populate the exotic new worlds. There is also a photo of Adam Driver as Sith Lord Kylo Ren and Oscar Isaac as X-Wing fighter Poe Dameron posing for this exclusive and rather luxurious Annie Leibovitz photo shoot for 'Vanity Fair'!

THE FORCE AWAKENS
Coming to cinemas December 18th, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, the seventh movie in the popular science fiction franchise, is continuing the Star Wars saga where Return of the Jedi left off, with Luke Skywalker aiming to restore the Jedi Order while Leia and Han Solo work with the New Republic against the remnants of the Galactic Empire and a new potential threat.

  1. Debra Messing is a good choice to play a Celtic Warrior Queen, with her long red hair and fierceness!

  9. Oooh Albion looks intriguing. I like both Messing and Cleese but would never have pictured them working together.

    Did you see the pics Leibovitz took of the Queen? The Queen didn't like taking direction, but Leibovitz is a pro and she pulled off the shoot. God, I remember her work for Rolling Stone in the 60's and 70'.s I just adore her.

    Guess what? I'm going with The Spawn tomorrow to look at wedding dresses. She's to be married in January 2016. I shall most likely cry when I see her try them on, so I'll be taking tissues with me.

    1. Me neither, I don't think anyone of them has ever acted in an epic movie.
      I did, too much fur around the queen for me at that photoshoot.

      Enjoy the wedding shopping, it's one time in life :) Is she going for something unusual?

  10. Knowing The Spawn I would expect her to want something different from the norm. I can't imagine finding anything exotic in this area though. I'm guessing we'll have to look in Indianapolis, which is a big city, or Muncie, which is in a really cool and fun University town.

    1. Hope she finds something special. Will it be a big wedding, are all the relatives flying in? Will it be at the freshly renovated Castle de O'Leary? What is the mother of the bride wearing?

  15. That new Star Wars is a must see for me. I was a great fan of these movies from the very first one!
    May the force be with me, that I can wait that long!
