'HISPANIOLA' EPIC TV SERIES
Marco Polo's writer John Fusco is set to produce another epic saga for TV! He will turn Hans Koning's novel Columbus: His Enterprise: Exploding the Myth into an epic series titled HISPANIOLA! Cavalry Media has envisioned it as a premium drama about unchecked power and the madness and brilliance bred by its pursuit. Based on Koning’s 1991 book, it will tell the brutal true story of Christopher Columbus and the first Wild West frontier, the tropical Caribbean island of Hispaniola that now encompasses the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Hispaniola is the site of the first permanent European settlement in the Americas, founded by Columbus on his voyages in 1492 and 1493.
TARON EGERTON IS ELTON JOHN
First full trailer and a poster arrive from United Kingdom for Elton John's ROCKETMAN, a movie inspired by his life. Taron Egerton (who actually
sings all Elton's songs in the movie) plays Elton himself, with Jamie Bell playing Elton's long time composer Bernie Taupin, our dear Richard Madden as Elton's manager and lover John Reid and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton's mother Sheila Farebrother. Charlie Rowe, Steven Mackintosh, Tate Donovan also star. The movie is not a classic biopic like Bohemian Rhapsody was, but a fantasy musical in which Elton's most famous songs were used to express important beats in his life at emotional moments describing how he went from a shy small town pianist to world's biggest pop superstar.
