HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Warner Bros. is preparing an unusual time travelling adventure: ROME SWEET ROME will follow a group of modern day soldiers
who are sent back through time where they get forced to fight against Roman legionaries. Speaking of unusual fantasy projects, "Variety" reports that Rob Liefeld's comic book GODYSSEY will be made into a movie telling a Greek mythological tale that sees Zeus, Buddha, Ra and Pangu battle against a legion of fallen gods to save humanity. In TV news, TNT has picked up Rebecca Romijn's new drama KING AND MAXWELL to ten part series. Based on David Baldacci's novels the series will have Rebecca Romijn as Michelle Maxwell and "The Closer"'s Jon Tenney as Sean King - a pair of former Secret Service agents who now operate as private investigators. TNT will soon also announce whether they will pick up Michael Bay's apocalyptic pilot THE LAST SHIP to series as well. That one stars Rona Mitra and Eric Dane.
The first trailer for new drama MUD has been released. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey, Michael Shannon and Sam Shephard the film is the powerful, redemptive tale of a charismatic fugitive named Mud (Matthew McConaughey)
and his unlikely friendship with fourteen year old Ellis (Tye Sheridan). Ellis is determined to help his new friend escape from both the law and some very serious bounty hunters, in order to reunite Mud with his soul mate, Juniper (Reese Witherspoon)! The film will start its cinematic life later in April.
