And even more movies about famous authors after yesterday's news! Although her lovely sitcom Disjointed has just been cancelled after just one season over at Netflix, Kathy Bates will not stay out of work! She has just been cast in period set drama THE LAUREATE  which will follow the life of British poet Robert Graves! And she will be in a stunning company as the cast will also include Tom Hughes, our dearest Laura Haddock and Diana Agron!

THE STORY OF THE MOVIE 
Set against the glamorous backdrop of Britain's roaring '20s, THE LAUREATE tells the story of young British War Poet Robert Graves (Tom Hughes), who is married with four children when he meets and becomes romantically involved with Laura Riding (Diana Agron), a writer from America. Defying the conventions of polite society, Riding moves in with Graves and his wife (Laura Haddock will play his wife
Victoria's Hughes will play poet Robert Graves
Nancy Nicholson who was a painter and fabric designer) living as a ménage a trois. Then with the arrival of strappingly handsome Irish poet Geoffrey Phibbs, the arrangement becomes a ménage a quatre. But soon tensions and rivalries become so fraught that Graves is a suspect for attempted murder. Kathy Bates will be Graves’ meddling mother who fears Riding will ruin the seemingly idyllic marriage as tensions in the household rise.

  GERARD BUTLER
TO GO ON A FUTURISTIC HUNT FOR TREASURES IN 'AFTERBURN'
This has been Gerard Butler's passion project for years
Deadline reports today that Jung Byung Gil will direct futuristic action adventure AFTERBURN with Gerard Butler! Five years after a solar flare disrupts all technology in Europe, a treasure hunter (Gerard Butler) goes to France to retrieve the Mona Lisa. Paired with a strong willed weapons expert with her own agenda, the two search for the famed painting and encounter unexpected enemies along the way. As the movie is being eyed as a potential start of a whole franchise,  the future story lines might see him searching for such treasures as England’s Crown Jewels, the Star of India, or China’s Imperial Treasures.

  1. Robert Graves had a fascinating life. He was also an early pioneer in bringing back the concept of the Divine Feminine to western spiritual consciousness. But I imagine this movie will all be sex, sex, sex. Not that there's anything wrong with that, LOL

    1. it was a really cute sitcom, not overly spectacular, but still very cute and very watchable, I have a few more episodes left and I will probably finish them before Superior Donuts and Will and Grace return from the Olympic break.

  4. Sounds like Laureate will be an interesting movie. I don't know much about the author. Thanks for sharing. :)

  5. Gerard Butler tends to equal poor movie. Hope this one is good, though.
