Thewlis leading the cast, and now they've added two more names: Christian Cooke and James Bloor. It is based on Annie Proulx novel which spans over 300 years: It chronicles the deforestation of the New World from the arrival of Europeans into the contemporary era of global warming through the stories of two immigrants to New France, RenĂ© Sel (Christian Cooke) and Charles Duquet (James Bloor), who work as wood cutters — BARKSKINS — and of their descendants. RenĂ© Sel is a strong

will start shooting later this year to air next year in more than 170 countries around the world  following a disparate group of outcasts who must navigate the brutal hardships, competing interests, and tangled loyalties at the crossroads of civilization — 1600s New France, where the war to escape their past and re-make themselves is cast against the vast and unforgiving wilds of North America.

  1. I'll admit to being a pig! I initially got stuck on the blue eyes...WOW! But after reading the post, the stories sound interesting. Do you know when the series is supposed to air?

    1. Sometime next year, we will post the first photos, trailers and airing dates when we know them but it won't be any time soon. They're both gorgeous as hell :)

    4. Plus you look more intelligent. I have black eyes, but that's temporary. Angie was too enthusiastic.

  2. Both actors are good physical representatives of their characters from the novel! I must read, read, READ and finish this novel before the mini-series comes out, LOL.

    2. Then this is one I'll have to stick to watching instead of reading, as you know we don't have much leisure time these days. I find myself nodding off within 5 minutes of tucking myself into bed and grabbing my book. I used to be able to squeeze in 30-45 minutes so it's taking me forever just to finish a 300 page book :(

    3. I've never read in bed in my life :) I read only when I can read all day long, during breaks between jobs, and then it is like breaky-book-lumch-book-dindins :) What I can't deal with these days is movies longer than 90 minutes, which is basically all movies :)
