CHRIS EVANS IS NEW DOCTOR 'JEKYLL'? MERYL STREEP TO JOIN EMILY BLUNT IN 'MARY POPPINS RETURNS'? 'HOOTEN AND THE LADY' ADVENTURE TV SERIES PICS WITH MICHAEL LANDES

 CHRIS EVANS 
TO STAR IN DR 'JEKYLL' MOVIE?
While Russell Crowe recently got signed by Universal to play their Dr. Jekyll, in their monsters franchise movie THE MUMMY with Tom Cruise, 'Deadline' reports that Lionsgate is preparing their own JEKYLL movie and they've already got Chris Evans to play the lead!
Their movie will, apparently, be the big screen adaptation of recent JEKYLL British BBC series in which James Nesbitt played the modern version of the doctor with split personality who lives in a fortified basement with a psychiatric nurse as his ally. She watches him transform into an alter ego who rages, shows heightened strength and speed and can be a charming, flirtatious scoundrel as well. The two personalities try to co-exist, even though one doesn’t remember what the other does while in control of the body. They use a micro cassette to leave messages for each other.

MERYL STREEP TO JOIN EMILY BLUNT IN THE SEQUEL?
Meanwhile, according to fresh rumours, coming over from 'The Wrap', Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt, two of our absolute faves, could be starring together for the third time after Devil Wears Prada and Into the Woods! Streep is, allegedly, negotiating to join Disney's sequel MARY POPPINS RETURNS in which Blunt plays the lead role! What is more interesting Into the Woods helmer Rob Marshall is directing this one as well! Also starring Lin Manuel Miranda as lamplighter Jack, and set in  depression era London, the movie will follow the grown up Banks children as they get a visit from the umbrella flying nanny after a family tragedy.

ADVENTURE SERIES PHOTOS
Meanwhile, British Sky One has released the first photos from their new adventure series HOOTEN AND THE LADY which starts airing this September on the Isles in which Michael Landes plays a maverick adventurer Hooten while Ophelia Lovibond is Lady Alexandra, a brave history expert. Together they travel the Globe searching for hidden treasures Indiana Jones style. Gorgeous Olivia Grant from INDIAN SUMMERS and Jane Seymour also star.

  1. We watched about 3/4 of the BBC series of Jekyll but it was just too weirdly paranormal and far-fetched for us and we quit. James Nesbitt, however, was sexy and fabulous in the title role. I'm sure Chris Evans will be too.

  2. I am interested in Mary Poppins Returns. I have only seen Mary Poppins and haven't read it- so I don't have any idea what is coming. Thinking I should start reading them soon. :) Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh no I would have grabbed two trays. One as a shield and the other to throw at that bitch's cross bow wielding face. Don't aim that shit at me! Sorry but the last cassette based situation that interested me were my own and Quill's on GOTG. Good luck on that Jekyll thing Chris, sounds like you might need it.

  5. How delightful it would be if Meryl is joining the cast of Mary Poppins! I think Emily and Meryl make a great team!
