HELENA BONHAM CARTER JOINS CATE BLANCHETT, SANDRA BULLOCK IN FEMALE 'OCEAN'S ELEVEN' AND LEADS 'SAINT MAZIE' PROHIBITION ERA MINI SERIES! '13 REASONS WHY' SERIES ADAPTATION GETS CAST

 HELENA BONHAM CARTER
 JOINS CATE BLANCHETT, SANDRA BULLOCK IN FEMALE 'OCEAN'S 11'?
Now here's a mighty powerful start of an ensemble cast: according to latest rumours Helena Bonham Carter has signed up for a female version of OCEAN'S ELEVEN which reportedly has Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock already signed for the lead roles! Produced by George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh, the movie will be set in the same universe as OCEAN'S ELEVEN revolving around a female heist team.  HUNGER GAMES director Garry Ross is helming this one! At some point Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence were also rumoured for the cast.
LEADS 'SAINT MAZIE'
Speaking of Helena Bonham Carter she will star in SAINT MAZIE mini series based on Jami Attenberg novel about Mazie Gordon Phillips who spent her days selling tickets at a cinema which she eventually inherited, and in her spare time she walked the streets of New York, giving the homeless soap and sips of liquor from her flask. Far from the normal picture of a saint she was foul-mouthed, free-spirited and drank her way through Prohibition. But in her own very quiet way she became a local hero.

 '13 REASONS WHY' SERIES
FINDS ITS MAIN CAST
Meanwhile, all you teens will be happy to hear that Netflix has started casting for their TV series adaptation of Jay Asher's bestseller 13 REASONS WHY! To be produced by Selena Gomez it will star Kate Walsh opposite Dylan Minnette, Derek Luke and Katherine Langford! The 13 episode series follows a boy named Clay (Dylan Minnette) through an emotional night when he receives a shoe box of cassette tapes from his late classmate and crush Hannah (Katherine Langford), after she recently committed suicide. On the tapes, which are mailed with instructions to pass along from one student to another, Hannah explains to 12 peers how they each played a role in her death, by giving 13 reasons explaining why she took her life. Walsh will be Hannah’s mom with Luke as Hannah’s guidance counsellor.

  1. "13 Reasons Why" sounds like it could be a powerful mini-series about bullying, aimed at teens where hopefully it could do some good.

    2. Female James Bond is sacrilege.

    3. That godawful Gillian Anderson, who was so disgustingly bad in WAR AND PEACE wants to be the female OO7, the horror. What a ghastly idea it is, pish and tosh.

  3. Now, see, that's the difference been being bored by a female Ghostbusters and excited about a female Oceans Eleven - the cast really does make the movie.

  4. Saint Mazie sounds interesting. So does 13 Reasons Why (I have been curious about the book- but haven't had a chance to read it yet). Thanks for sharing. :)

  5. The new Oceans 11 may have potential. I love heist movies and if they have a great cast and do it well, I think it could work.

    I is back again dahlink. The bloke who owns the local nursery has been giving me free rose bushes and I had to get them in the ground. Three climbers and a bush that is half yellow and half pink. So now I am building a new rose garden with them.

    How is Summer going for you?

    1. Methinks I will get the morbs, dahlink, if they cast Julia in it or some other undeserving wench....

      Half yellow and half pink as in one single rose? We have a very strange one which is white in the bud but beige peach when it blooms, and a climbing one which is pinkish when in bud and white when it opens, how very strange. We have a near black lily too, it is positively frightening, I must say, like some warlock bloom from a Midsummer's Night Dream or whatnot.... I've never heard of such a thing before I saw it with my own eyes in our garden... Lilies give me terrible allergies, dear, and mumsie keeps bringing them in... she's plotting to kill me, I swear.... she's just acting naive and sheepish

  8. All 3 sound so good! Jason and I absolutely loved Ocean's 11. I am thrilled that there will be a female team to watch now!

    Helena looks very nice when she gets all scrubbed clean. I think Sait Maize will be an interesting watch.

    Even though I despise Gomez, I do think I'll catch 13 Reasons Why. It could be one that my girls will like also.
