JACK REYNOR TO LEAD CBS'
'STRANGE ANGEL' 1930S SHOW
Interesting casting news today as well, people! One of our favourites among the new boys, Jack Reynor will topline new period set series STRANGE
Reynor already wore a period costume in Macbeth
 ANGEL for CBS! In the new series he will be Jack Parsons, a brilliant and ambitious blue collar worker from 1930s Los Angeles who started as a janitor at a chemical factory but had fantastical dreams that led him to birth the unknown discipline of American rocketry. Along the way, he fell into a mysterious world that included sex magic rituals at night, and he became a disciple of occultist Aleister Crowley. Parsons used Crowley’s teachings of self actualization to support his unimaginable and unprecedented endeavour to the stars. The series is based on a book by George Pendle!

'THE MERLIN SAGA' 
RIDLEY SCOTT TO DIRECT?
The Merlin saga has 12 books so far!
Meanwhile, 'Variety' reports that Ridley Scott is in talks to direct Disney's THE MERLIN SAGA which is eyed as a possible franchise based on 12 books from T.A. Barron which he started publishing back in 1996! He would also produce it with Lord of the Rings' and Hobbit's Philippa Boyens writing the script! Similar to the popular BBC series from a decade ago, THE MERLIN SAGA depicts the origin story of a young wizzard Merlin who would go on to become the mentor of the classic literary character of King Arthur. It is even more interesting that Disney is preparing another movie from this universe - a live action version of SWORD IN THE STONE which Ridley could also produce.

  2. Very odd Strange Angel indeed! We’ll wait until the critics chime in to see if it’s as odd as it sounds.

  3. You know, there is just not ENOUGH of Alastair Crowley's sex magick on TV. It's a void that needs to be filled, so to speak.
