RUSSELL TOVEY JOINS TOM HIDDLESTON, HUGH LAURIE IN 'NIGHT MANAGER' MINI SERIES! JOHN GREEN'S & MAUREEN JOHNSON'S 'LET IT SNOW' GETS ADAPTATION! 'LEADING LADY' TRAILER WITH KATHY MCGRATH, GIL BELLOWS

  'THE NIGHT MANAGER' MINI
RUSSELL TOVEY JOINS TOM HIDDLESTON AND HUGH LAURIE
Well, this is certainly a rather nice cast: our most beloved and utterly charming Russell Tovey has joined BBC and AMC new mini series THE NIGHT MANAGER lead by our equally beloved Tom Hiddleston! The small screen adaptation of John le Carre's novel stars Tom Hiddleston as an ex soldier named Jonathan Pine, who is recruited for the British intelligence service by the mysterious Burr (Olivia Colman). Jonathan Pine is sent to investigate an alliance between Washington DC, Whitehall and a major arms dealer by infiltrating weapons trader Richard Onslow Roper's (Hugh Laurie) gang. Douglas Hodge, Tom Hollander and Alistair Petrie are also in the cast. 

  'LET IT SNOW' STORY BOOK
GETS 2016 MOVIE ADAPTATION 
Yet another book that your dearest Dezzy is translating this year, the collection of stories LET IS NOW from John Green (The Fault In Our Stars), Maureen Johnson (13 Little Blue Envelopes) and Lauren Myracle (Internet Girls) is finally moving on with the adaptation! Universal will release the film in December 2016! The project which I mentioned for the first time four years ago, will see PITCH PERFECT's Kay Cannon pen the script for the romantic festive film in which charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses are set in a little town stranded in a Christmas snowstorm. With sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicoloured lights glittering in the night through the falling snow a small town gets transformed into a romantic haven.

 'LEADING LADY' TRAILER
KATHY MCGRATH & GIL BELLOWS
Check out the delightful romantic trailer for new comedy movie LEADING LADY in which Katie McGrath plays an idealistic British drama school teacher, Jodi Rutherford, who persuades a cynical South African farmer to prepare her for a role in a major film as an Afrikaans war heroine. In return Jodi undertakes to direct the annual concert on the Willemse farm. Jodi's interaction with the quirky small town citizens and the stubborn Kobus, teaches her that: "there is more to life than lights... camera... and action!" Bok Van Blerk and Gil Bellows also star.

  2. Leading Lady looks like a cute rom-com. Let It Snow looks like it could be fun. I might have the book in my collection.

    1. it's been around for a while, I first mentioned it back in 2011, so imagine my surprise when my publisher told me she bought it for me to translate :)

  6. Me is so happy that you have a book to translate dahlink. I clicked on the link from four years ago and discovered that it was a time before me. Oh how dreadful that there was a time before I was with you on blogger. Fran was there, which made me sad as we miss him so.

    Now onto Tom on the small screen Woooopeeeee!!!! So that's six episodes which equals six Tom's. Now if only this was to be more than a single series, we'd have more Tom's.

    1. Yes, dear, Fran was the first of the wargamers to connect with me... actually, methinks I was the one who connected the wargamers with the rest of the bloggers :) and also all the writer bloggers with the rest of them too. I fancy me had a kinda of a messianic role amongst them LOL

      I have three books waiting, dear. RED QUEEN, LET IT SNOW and I'm currently working on ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES which is, funny enough, set in Indiana :) and two teens are wandering around the state visiting all the Hoosier miracles :) It is quite possible that at some point of the story they might visit your place or Theresa's below :)

    2. If there are bright places in Indiana, it's a secret. I think the only Hoosier miracle there is, is that these morons can walk and talk at the same time. Still don't know what the hell a Hoosier is.

    3. Hhe he .. dahlink, you won't believe it, but just an hour ago with my publisher I proposed for the book to be translated as TAKE ME TO THE SECRET PLACES :)

    1. did she read ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES from Jennifer Niven? I'm hundred pages into translating that one and it is set in your Indiana :) Read the comment for Anne above :)

    2. I just loved that book! It really made me want to look into some of Indiana's hidden gems. The shoe tree sounded pretty neat. I think it was Muncie where they went to the religious place that I thought would be cool to tour as well. They didn't make it here to South Bend, in the book. I think it would have been cool for them to hit up The Grotto at Notre Dame at least.

      Mariah hasn't read it yet. She's loaded down this summer with assigned books for her advanced placement English class, so it will be some time before she has time to read on her own for the fun of it.
