RICHARD RANKIN JOINS ALEXANDER DREYMON, DAVID DAWSON IN 'LAST KINGDOM' EPIC SERIES SEASON 2! KATE WINSLET TO JOIN IDRIS ELBA IN 'MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US'?

 'THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US'
KATE WINSLET JOINS IDRIS ELBA?
Now, here's an unusual pair: as 'The Hollywood Reporter' writes today, British Rose Kate Winslet is currently negotiating to join Idris Elba in the adventure survival big screen adaptation of Charles Martin's book THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US
The romantic drama tells of a woman, engaged to be married, and a surgeon who charter a plane to get them home after inclement weather delays their flight. When the plane crashes in a snowy wilderness, the two must work together to survive.

 'LAST KINGDOM' EPIC SERIES
 2ND SEASON STARTS   SHOOTING WITH RICHARD RANKIN
One bad and three good pieces of news: bad - we won't be seeing any of THE LAST KINGDOM this year, the good ones - the second season has started production, our beloved Richard Rankin (CRIMSON FIELDS) has joined the cast, and it will air next year at Netflix too, beside BBC 2, making it available to wider audience.
Based on Bernard Cornwell's novels The Lords of the North and Sword Song, and set in the year 878, the 2nd series returns as fearless and instinctive warrior Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) continues his fight for his native land of Northumbria. Uhtred, having given his sword to King Alfred (David Dawson), despite his upbringing by the invading pagan Danes, embarks on his voyage north to reclaim his own fate: recapture his ancestral lands of Bebbanburg. Alfred’s conviction to create a united England is stronger than ever, and he sets his sights on the wild lands of the north, which have fallen into chaos and rebellion. It is a dangerous time for Saxon and Dane alike, but Alfred champions a new king - a Christian Dane - to unite the tribes. However, this king has been enslaved, and Uhtred becomes embroiled in a rescue mission, which brings him face to face with an enemy of old. Emily Cox, Ian Hart and Tobias Santelmann return again joined by new cast members Thure Lindhardt, Millie Brady, Peter McDonald and Richard Rankin.

  3. Darn, I was hoping for some Last Kingdom this fall. It took me a while to get into the series, but by the last episode, I was hooked. I do think Uhtred is a prick though. Not a very likable guy for me, but I did like the first season.

    1. he is a cocky one, not that you wouldn't forgive him :) Although I think Alfred is a bigger prick at least towards Uthrie, and that queen of his is such an ugly biatch... I swear

    2. I think that was part of the problem with this show for me. I did not find any of the characters likeable, except for maybe his wife. The one he left for the other hussy. Yes, the queen is so darned ugly! I almost feel sorry that Alfred has to sleep next to that each night. Yikes!

    3. but that other hussy was a queen :) and she actually died for him in the end :(
      And the queen makes Alfie eat only porridge and he can't poop, poor bastard...

    4. Queen or not, you don't go gallivanting off with a married man. And, she was responsible for the death of the other wife's baby. She deserved what she got in the end. Too bad Uhtred didn't have his balls handed to him in the end, too.

    5. Yes, but she did not know that baby would die, she had to do it to save the heir to the throne. She was ever so sad about it laters... I kinda hated Uthred's pompous wify, so we won't agree on this :)))

    6. I imagine there will be plenty more women in this series that we will come to dislike. None so much as that super ugly queen though, I'm sure.

  4. The Mountain Between Us sounds good!! I guess if I couldn't get stranded with a specialist in a survival, I may settle for the surgeon.

  5. The Mountain Between Us sounds like an interesting film to look forward to. I like stories with an unlikely pair working together to survive.
