'THE LAST TYCOON'
ORDERED INTO AMAZON SERIES
As Amazon has just picked their small screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's THE LAST TYCOON into whole TV series, we have gorgeous first photos from it too! The cast is lead by Matt Bomer, Lily Collins and Kelsey Grammer.
Inspired by the life of film mogul Irving Thalberg, on whom the book’s protagonist Monroe Stahr was based THE LAST TYCOON centres on Stahr (Matt Bomer), Hollywood’s first wunderkind studio executive in the 1930s as he climbs to the height of power pitting him against his mentor and current head of the studio, the brawny, imposing, charming and vain Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammer), a character based on Louis B. Mayer. Having come from the streets, Brady has no intention of returning to his misfortune, and is determined to make sure his studio is successful, no matter what personal morals he compromises.
'THE GREAT WALL' TRAILER
ZHANG YIMOU'S EPIC MOVIE
Universal's has meanwhile released the first, rather epic, trailer for Zhang Yimou's THE GREAT WALL which sadly, instead of originally planned Henry Cavill has Matt Damon in the lead role looking terribly lost in it. The largest film ever shot in China should hit cinemas next February following an elite force making a last stand for humanity on the world’s most iconic structure.
