HERNAN CORTES BESTSELLER 'CONQUISTADOR' BY BUDDY LEVY TO BECOME EPIC TV SERIES! WERNER HERZOG TO BUILD A TOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF AMAZON JUNGLE IN PERIOD SET 'FORDLANDIA' TV SERIES!

 'CONQUISTADOR' MINI SERIES
 ON INFAMOUS HERNAN CORTES
Epic news people! Overbrook Entertainment and Motor (they did Knightfall) have bought TV series rights on best selling book
The series will be based on Buddy Levy book
CONQUISTADOR Hernan Cortes, King Montezuma, and the Last Stand of the Aztecs by Buddy Levy with intention to turn it into mini series. It brings the tragic tale of conquest and defeat, of colonization and resistance, of empires won and civilizations lost and of the violent confluence of two empires previously unknown to each other. It’s the epic account of Hernan Cortes, one of the greatest conquerors history has ever known, and Montezuma, the complex leader of the ancient civilization that he would oppose. Their stories culminate in the cataclysmic battle that would be the end of one world and the making of a new one.

The spy has informed you that Spielberg is preparing CORTES series with Javier Bardem for Amazon, and that  Roland Emmerich is preparing a movie MAYA LORD set at about the same time.

  'FORDLANDIA' SERIES
 WERNER HERZOG TO DIRECT AMAZON JUNGLE 1920'S SHOW
The Non Fiction book almost won Pulitzer in 2010
Another book to be turned into a possible TV series is Greg Grandin's FORDLANDIA to be directed by famous Werner Herzog and written by Oscar nominee Christopher Wilkinson. The book, which almost won Pulitzer Prize back in 2010, tells the extraordinary true story of the richest man in the world in the 1920s, Henry Ford, and his attempt to re-create small town America deep in the heart of the Amazon jungle. This won't be the first Amazonian adventure project for Herzog, as he already directed Amazon set Fitzcaraldo back in the eighties!

  1. I swear, I always think it looks like they are wearing a ring of coffee filters around their necks. What a stifling fashion look.

  2. I saw Herzog's "Fitzcaraldo" in the theatres back in the 80s. It was a good movie about megalomania. Seems to me "Fordlandia" will have a similar theme.

  4. The world doesn't seem to learn its lesson from history. Conquest is temporary, colonialism is bad, empires fall (even if it takes many decades).
    So, there's definitely place for movies such as "Conquistador", to be reminded of that.
