GAL GADOT JOINS
BRANAGH'S 'DEATH ON THE NILE'
Gal Gadot will play a rich heiress on the cruise
As much as I wanted to love it, Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express was a ghastly bore for me, but it does not mean the new film in the series won't be better. As 'Deadline' reports, Gal Gadot has just joined him in his new adaptation of DEATH ON THE NILE in which, beside directing, he will again play Hercule Poirot. The writer is, sadly, the same as in Orient Express, but unlike that one, where a murder happened on a train, in this one Poirot is investigating a murder on a boat. Gal Gadot will be rich heiress Linnet Ridgeway Doyle who was enjoying that luxurious cruise when the murder happened only to continue again when the suspects start dying one by one.The movie should be out for New Year's Eve 2019! Just a month before that you will be watching Gadot in Wonder Woman sequel.

TO PAIR UP NICOLE KIDMAN, RALPH FIENNES & A BURIAL SHIP
Nicole Kidman will be Edith Pretty
The latest scoop coming from British Daily Mail is that Nicole Kidman and Ralph Fiennes will team up on new historical drama movie THE DIG based on John Preston's novel about the 1939 discovery of Anglo Saxon treasures at Sutton Hoo which led to the excavation of a royal burial chamber in which a 90ft-long ship was entombed 1,400 years earlier. Kidman and Fiennes will play Edith Pretty, who owned the land at Sutton Hoo, and Basil Brown, the archaeologist who found what was discovered there and the Simon Stone directed film will depict a fictionalised version of their relationship.
DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON The dig actually uncovered a funerary ship and a huge cache of 7th
century royal treasure. Edith, apparently, had visions of ghostly
processions in her yard and thus decided to have it excavated. She
approached Ipswich museum about it and Basil took up the
project. Although the wood had decayed, he did find the imprint of the
largest Anglo Saxon burial ship ever found and its rich cargo which included
weapons, silver cutlery, a suite of metalwork dress fittings in

With the help of an eccentric psychiatrist, and a local, accidental hero, our heroine has to grow up, but falls in love and eventually takes hold of her future - despite not being able to see what's right in front of her.

It was definitely one of the greatest victories in the history of television. Two years ago when ABC decided to kill its best watched comedy LAST MAN STANDING after six years of running (during which the sitcom continuously kept winning Friday night ratings each week and each year, even though it received almost no marketing from the network), for rather obvious political reasons, more than half a million of Last Man's most faithful fans have demanded its return in an online petition, and now the sitcom is returning to the small screens: new network, Fox, same time, Friday evenings, starting September 28th! Although people who never watched it like to unjustly call it conservative, LAST MAN
The beloved cast returns September 28th to the small screens!
STANDING is everything but. The most wholesome family show on the television has always put focus on a dialogue between opposing opinions, ages and classes, ending each of its love filled episodes with a message of tolerance and compromise. Message of peace wrapped in decent, always fresh and mature, humour while tackling the current social, political and all other issues. So here's a big hooray for the return of television's most beloved multi camera comedy!
