NEW EPIC TV SERIES PROJECTS 'DOCTOR ZHIVAGO', SF 'SILO' AND 'LAST AMAZON' ON AMAZON QUEENS! 'MOWGLI' TRAILER WITH CATE BLANCHETT, CHRISTIAN BALE, JACK REYNOR, FREIDA PINTO, ANDY SERKIS

  NEW EPIC TV SERIES
 DOCTOR ZHIVAGO & THE LAST AMAZON FOR SMALL SCREENS?
Doctor Zhivago is among the possible new projects
Amazing news from the epic genre. Atrium TV group, which develops ideas for new projects and offers them to their members among networks and producers, has a stunning slate of new projects which includes Michael Douglas produced sf series SILO , set in a future San Francisco which has become, because of diminished resources and over population, a gated community behind a massive wall!
  They also have a pitch for eight part DOCTOR ZHIVAGO epic saga from Sherlock producers which would adapt Boris Pasternak's sweeping political and romantic drama set in Russia before WWI!
Coming from Narcos producers and written by Rafe Judkins, with Ava DuVernay as executive producers, is also THE LAST AMAZON character driven series which will focus on the great Amazon Queens such as Antiope and Hippolyta, portraying their loves and major battles, notably, their campaign against the Ancient Greeks. Atrium's Quasimodo from their first slate of projects is already eyeing production!

  'MOWGLI' TRAILER
IS SADLY NOT THE WARM STORY FROM YOUR CHILDHOODS
Speaking of epic, Andy Serkis has released the first trailer for his version of Jungle Book's MOWGLI which is out this October following a human child
Mowgli arrives to the cinemas this October
raised by wolves, which must face off against a menacing tiger named Shere Khan, as well as his own origins. Cate Blanchett lends her voice to snake Kaa, Benedict Cumberbatch is evil tiger Shere Khan, Andy Serkis is Baloo the bear, Christian Bale is panther Bagheera, with Jack Reynor, Tom Hollander, Matthew Rhys, Eddie Marsan, Peter Mullan, Freida Pinto, also in the super stellar voice cast of the upcoming adventure. This version will be darker and more serious than the previous ones and certainly much more so than the beloved book by Rudyard Kipling. The actors don't just lend their voices but also play their characters in action capture technique.

  1. "Dr Zhivago" would be perfect as a mini-series! And I would definitely watch "The Last Amazon." "Mowgli" looks excellent too. I enjoyed the last live-action film that was made of "The Jungle Book" and I will go to this one too.

    1. There was a Dr Zhivago mini series a few years ago with the godawful Kiera Knightley. The old movie with Omar Sharrif was actually shot in my Vojvodina :)

    2. Thank goodness I missed the Keira Knightley miniseries then -- she's not one of my faves either. Very cool that the original movie was shot in your region!

    3. It was, since it was winter when they were shooting they did not have daffodils for that legendary scene so thousands of them were brought from abroad and planted all around our fields.

  3. Well that's a freakin' laugh. San Francisco as a gated community with a massive wall? That's like our #1 Sanctuary City here lolz.

  4. 'Dr Jivago' brought back to me some nostalgic memories. There was a time, in the late sixties I think, when I watched on TV, egyptian films starring Omar Shariff's ex wife Fatem Hamama. Always the same subject, the same actors, but her voice was very soothing and relaxing- and it was considered a treat on Friday afternoon.

    I"m certainly curious about 'Dr.Jivago' series without Omar Shariff, the very charming egyptian actor.

    2. Probaly. I don"t remember.I only know Omar's only son has a son born in Canada who's half jewish.
      Anyway, Egypt is very proud of the couple Omar Shariff & Fatem HamamA (RIP),and rightly so.

    3. Well, they should be, Omar was the most famous Egyptian in the world for so many decades!
      Oh, my mistake, I meant his grandson, Omar Jr, he recently came out as gay, methinks.

  5. The picture from Doctor Zhivago is stunning! And the new version of Mowgli looks vicious! I love the star-studded dubbers though :)

  6. Mowgli looks very dark. Little kids definitely should not see it. It'll give them nightmares.

    1. Fully agreed, I hate it when they turn children's stories into horrors, America seems to want to bathe everything in blood and violence :(
