'ZIPPER' TRAILER WITH PATRICK WILSON, LENA HEADEY, JOHN CHO, DIANA AGRON! SHAWN LEVY TO DIRECT BRANDON SANDERSON'S 'STEELHEART' FANTASY BESTSELLERS? ATIQ RAHIMI TO HELM AMIN MAALOUF'S 'PORTS OF CALL' WW2 NOVEL

'PORTS OF CALL' ADAPTATION 
 OF AMIN MAALOUF'S WW2 NOVEL
Only this weekend I informed you that Amin Maalouf's LEO THE AFRICAN will be turned into a movie, and now yet another of his beloved novels is getting the adaptation and already has the cast! PORTS OF CALL will star Golshifteh Farahani (EXODUS GODS AND KINGS), Louis Garrel and Pierre Niney in, as 'Deadline' reports, the story about two ill-starred lovers who meet in Paris during World War II: Ossyane, the principal narrator and Muslim Ottoman prince, and Clara, a Jewish freedom fighter from Vienna. PORTS OF CALL is a fable of madness and family ties, of love and despair, of mixed and uncertain identities set against the backdrop of the French Resistance as well as the breakdown of order in Beirut. Atiq Rahimi is directing!

'STEELHEART' ADAPTATION
BRANDON SANDERSON'S NOVELS
And as you know, adaptations of YA novels have been a trend for years now, and here's the latest one: STEELHEART fantasy trilogy from Brandon Sanderson is to be adapted and directed by Shawn Levy at Fox. The tale begins with a burst in the sky that gave some ordinary people extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics, but with incredible gifts came the desire to rule. In what was once Chicago, an astonishingly powerful Epic named STEELHEART installed himself as emperor. Nobody fights back but the Reckoners, a shadowy group of ordinary humans who spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. The book centres on David, who wants in the group because STEELHEART killed his father, and he alone knows the Epics’ true weakness.

'ZIPPER' TRAILER 
WITH PATRICK WILSON, DIANA AGRON, LENA HEADEY, JOHN CHO
And the only trailer for you today is for our beloved Patrick Wilson's new sex thriller ZIPPER in which he plays  Sam Ellis, a man on the rise, a hotshot federal prosecutor on the cusp of a bright political future. But what was meant to be a one time experience with a high end escort instead turns into a growing addiction. His moral compass unravelling, his new demon threatens to destroy his life, family and career. Diana Agron, Lena Headey, John Cho and Ray Winstone and Richard Dreyfuss also star in the movie out late next month.

  3. Why do these hot shot politicians think their "one time" sexcapade with an escort is never going public? Of course we Americans always forgive them and elect them to a higher office. Ooooohhhh did I just blow the ending for Zipper? LOL

    1. yep, the worse they go the more the stupid crowd seems to like them.... I think people like people who don't intimidate them and who have flaws just like they do... instead of striving towards the better ones

  6. Zipper had me until it was compared to Gone Girl, which I found to be an epic piece of shit film. I'd rather stab myself in the eye with a fork than watch that one ever again.

    2. Smart move. I don't know why it got such high acclaim. It was way too long, and when it ended, Jason and I sat here like wtf? I believe I ranted almost as long as the movie about wanting my almost 3 hours of life back.

    4. I should learn that what the masses usually like, I usually hate. I'll be avoiding that authors new book for sure. And the future movie too!

    5. I tend not to read what others are reading.... Paolo Koelo is like a huge hit for a decade now and everybody adores him... I refuse to read him :) I'm rebellious like that :) Of course, I sometimes have to translate those popular books... but that is business.... Finishing RED QUEEN currently

  7. I've never heard of Golshifteh Farahani, but I looked her up. She's from Iran, but it seems her work has made her unwelcomed in her homeland.

    1. He is getting more and more popular.
      Meanwhile, Maalouf is somebody I really recommend. I loved most of his books. I'm currently preparing to read LEO AFRICANS :)
