KEANU REEVES, ISLA FISHER TO LEAD 'STARLING' TOUCHING DRAMA! SANDRINE HOLT TO LEAD 'CROSSING' SF SERIES, ZACH GILFORD DWAYNE JOHNSON'S 'LIFELINE' SF SHOW

 KEANU REEVES TO LEAD
'THE STARLING' WITH ISLA FISHER
 Here's a lovely plot: as 'Deadline' reports today, Keanu Reeves and Isla Fisher should lead drama movie THE STARLING as a married couple who lose a child and the wife goes into a recovery place to help her with overwhelming grief, leaving the husband at home alone. To help aid in her recovery, the husband decides to build a beautiful garden for his wife in their backyard, but as he does he is tormented by an aggressive, black starling. At his wits end with the relentless nature of the bird, he goes to see a veterinarian to find out if there is a humane way to get rid of it. The vet, the husband finds out, used to be a psychiatrist but gave it up to help animals instead. However, the quirky vet begins counselling the husband in a turn that neither of them really expected. This could be a very emotional role for Keanu whose own girlfriend died a year after they lost their baby.

 'THE CROSSING' SF SERIES
SANDRINE HOLT TO LEAD
Sf TV news today, people! I already informed you earlier this winter that ABC is preparing a pilot for sf series THE CROSSING and now it has been announced that Sandrine Holt will take the lead. It revolves around refugees from a war torn country who start showing up to seek asylum in an American town. But the country these people are from is America and the war they are fleeing is 250 years in the future. The local sheriff with a past, a federal agent, and a mother in search of her missing refugee daughter drive this allegory with a surprising conspiracy at the centre. Holt will be Emma Peralta, a federal customs agent whose keen mind is always processing its surroundings, which allows her to perpetually exude control amongst chaos. Heavily sceptical of the refugees’ story and the concept of time travel, she nonetheless is sympathetic enough to find the truth due to her rough past as an immigrant.

'LIFELINE' SF SERIES
 ZACH GILFORD TO TOPLINE
Another SF series, the first one to be aired at YouTube, Dwayne Johnson produced LIFELINE has just cast one of our personal faves, stunning Zach Gilford in the lead role. Set in the not too distant future, the half hour series is about a little known life insurance company that sends its agents forward 33 days in time to prevent the accidental deaths of its clients. The company’s best agent, Conner Hooks (Zach Gilford), has never missed a save – until he takes on the most personal case of his life. When sixteen year old Norah (Sydney Park) is orphaned on his watch, Conner pledges to protect her, even if that means putting his career at LIFELINE, or his own life, in jeopardy.

  1. I'm looking forward to "The Starling." I am one of the few people in the world who genuinely think that Keanu Reeves is a good actor.

  2. I don't think I knew that about Keanu Reeves. I agree that this will probably be a very emotional movie for him then. It definitely sounds like an interesting movie and I am curious about the starling that is bothering him.

    1. Yes, and on top of it all his sister had cancer as well, if I remember correctly, that is why life has made him humble

  3. No, Keanu isn't the best actor, but I do admire him as a man. He seems like the most humble of all of the Hollywood stars. I think The Starling sounds like a very interesting moving. I'll be adding it to my must-see list.

    1. he does, there was a video of him last week at Facebook in which he is in a metro and offers his seat to a woman. Now, that shouldn't really be news of the day, but in the crazy world we live in it is certainly heartwarming. I was only annoyed by the woman herself, since she was about 20 and he is close to 50 and she accepted without blinking.

  4. Maybe she felt it would be rude to turn down the offer? Maybe she thought it would make him look weak by continuing to stand while he sat? With all this "chivalry is dead" crap going on, who knows what was going through her head. Jason has me so spoiled that I automatically slow down when approaching a door because I'm just used to him holding them open for me. I don't think I could tolerate dating a man who doesn't offer little niceties like that for his lady. If a man offered me his seat I'd try to gauge if he was being sincere and really wanted me to have it. I'd probably decline at first, but if it was brought up again, I'd accept so I didn't hurt his feelings.

    1. No, she did not even consider it, she thought it was her immediate privilege or something. I wouldn't mind if he really wasn't double her age if not more.
