Dashing Joe Sims (Broadchurch) will be miner Greff; Lee Boardman (Da Vinci’s Demons, in which both Bew and Cowan starred as well), will be an ambitious medic. David Bradley (Harry Potter, GOT) will play tribe leader Gorrik while Ace Bhatti (Black Work) will play councillor Harken.

  'LUNA NEW MOON' SF NOVEL
TO BE TURNED INTO TV SERIES
The third book adaptation for today is a science fiction one: NCIS's Shane Brennan is to turn Ian McDonald's upcoming sf novel series LUNA: NEW MOON into series at CBS!  It is set in 2110 on the moon, which has been colonized and industrialized. It is controlled by five powerful, highly competitive dynastic corporate families (known as the Five Dragons) who run their various enterprises with an iron fist in a near feudal society. The moon, under the control of the Five Dragons, is a lucrative source of valuable resources such as Helium-3, carbon, water ice and rare metals, which are exported back to Earth for huge profits. Forty years ago, Adriana wrested control of the moon’s lucrative Helium-3 industry from the powerful Mackenzie Metal corporation. Now, in the twilight of her life, Adriana finds her corporation, Corta Helio, surrounded by the many enemies she made during her meteoric rise. If the Corta family is to survive, Adriana’s five children must defend their mother’s empire from her many enemies… and each other.

    1. I've no idea, but I've noticed around the net that tons of people hate the book... don't know whom to trust :)

  2. OMG I just finished reading The Girl on the Train and I predicted there would be a movie. I could not put it down it was so awesome. Emily Blunt is WAY too pretty to play that part. She was an overweight, unattractive alcoholic in the book.

  3. OMG SO excited to see that about The Girl on the Train. I read the book in April and couldn't wait to hear who would be playing the main character. Anna, indeed, is a prominent character as well. And Emily Blunt's the perfect choice! She's married to Jim from The Office, one of my all-time favorite shows.

  4. Beowulf! Yay! The cast is shaping up nicely on this one. It's going to be a long wait to see this and I know we'll be teased between now and airing. Something to look forward to though.

    You're not going to believe this, but it's true. Two nights ago I had this stupid dream that I was named Mayor of the the Moon. I didn't want the job to begin with and it only paid 22K a year. Not enough money for a job like that. I hope the tv show is better than my stupid dream was

    1. I love it that they took a number of actors from DA VINCI'S DEMONS whose cast is probably the cast to tweet HOLLYWOOD SPY most of all other casts :) Love them all to bits from Kieran to Elliott, Tom Riley and Laura Haddock.

      Oooh, an Irish rule on Luna... melikes it :) Would I be a governor of a moon crater in your government? :) I want the one with the hottest male population, dahlink

  5. I loved Rebecca in MI. One review I read suggested she should get her own spinoff series. I agree!

    1. I'm only shocked that people seem to ask who she is and where did she pop up from. I mean she had lead roles in WHITE QUEEN adn RED TENT which were both watched around the world. She even had Emmy noms methinks

  6. I love thrillers. I think it's interesting that the character fantasizes about what she sees while travelling and then sees something disturbing.

  7. I look forward to seeing how Girl on the Train turns out. It was an intriguing read and I can understand why some people disliked. It reminded me a bit of Alfred Hitchcock's work.
