GUY PEARCE, VANESSA REDGRAVE JOIN TONI COLLETTE, CLIVE OWEN IN 'ANDORRA'! 'ALI AND NINO' EPIC LOVE STORY TRAILER! TNT ORDERS 'SNOWPIERCER' SF SERIES PILOT

  GUY PEARCE IN 'ANDORRA' 
WITH TONI COLLETTE, CLIVE OWEN, VANESSA REDGRAVE
In movie news today, Guy Pearce has taken over the lead role from Clive Owen in ANDORRA, but Clive is still in and will now play a supporting role of Toni Collette's husband. Vanessa Redgrave has also joined Gillian Anderson, Joanna Lumley in the movie in which Pearce will be Fox who arrives to ANDORRA in search of the chance to reinvent himself, but gets entangled with the ancient Mrs Reinhardt (Redgrave) as well as the Australian Dents (Collette and Owen) and Mrs Quay (Lumley), the kayaking matriarch of an Andorran dynasty who seems to recall Fox from long ago. As he finds comfort in the company of Miss Quay (Anderson), the mystery of his origin deepens. When a woman’s body is found, the local lieutenant, Afgroni  becomes strangely convinced that Fox is responsible. With an emissary from his past threatening his newfound paradise, Fox finds himself in a crisis of conscience and identity.

 TNT ORDERS 'SNOWPIERCER
EPIC SF TV SERIES PILOT 
In TV news, as 'Deadline' reports, TNT has officially ordered a pilot for possible new series based on SNOWPIERCER sf cult movie with Chris Evans. With Josh Friedman as the show runner, it is set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland and the remnants of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. The show questions class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival.

  'ALI AND NINO' TRAILER
 FALLING IN LOVE WHILE THE WORLD IS FALLING APART
Meanwhile, Fanny from Dezzy's spying squads has sent us the first trailer for ALI AND NINO epic love story with Adam Bakri and Maria Valverde (a very weak performance judging from the trailer)!
   Ali is an upper class Muslim man, whose family holds a great deal of power in Baku, Azerbaijan. At that time, before World War One, Azerbaijan was part of the Russian Empire. Nino, Ali's lover, is from neighbouring Georgia and is Christian, but the two are deeply in love and elope to the countryside. The story follows the two, who get married, through World War One, which only sees some of Ali's friends sent off to war. After the Russians surrender, however, conflict comes to Baku. Ali fights the Bolsheviks with the Azerbaijani militia and Nino helps nurse wounded soldiers during the March Days massacre in Baku.

  3. SNOWPIERCER wasn't that awesome as a movie. I can't see it as a tv series.

  4. Snowpiercer sounds like it might have potential as a series. I am not a fan of snow and cold, but this one has my attention.
