Stephen Moyer will lead new sf adventure
In latest science fiction news, Stephen Moyer has signed on to star in British sf movie G-LOC, a space adventure directed by Tom Paton. Production is already under way for the film in which Moyer potrays a man who flees Earth through a portal called The Gate to find a hoped for home on the planet of Rhea. The cast also includes Tala Gouveia, Casper Van Dien and Johnathan Rhys Davies! Speaking of sf and Rhys Davies, he recently confirmed that he and Jerry O'Connell have had talks with NBC about the possible reboot of their cult 90s sf series Sliders to see if it could be revamped in any way.

'THREE LIONS' EPIC SERIES
ON RICHARD I AND HIS HEIRS
While we are waiting for his epic series Catherine the Great to air at HBO sometime this year, Nigel Williams has, as Deadline reports, teamed with
The series will have international cast!
European Wild Horses on an epic period drama focused around King Richard I.
THREE LIONS would be a ten part 12th century series which begins when King Richard I is shipwrecked somewhere off the coast of Trieste and his disappearance starts an epic struggle across Europe for its most powerful crown. His lawful heir Prince Arthur is being denied the throne of England by his own grandmother, Eleanor of Aquitaine who, as Regent Queen, has no intention of relinquishing her power and wants to keep the Regent position by putting her other son John Lackland on the throne. But Arthur’s mother, Duchess Constance, the ruler of Brittany, will certainly stand in her way. To claim the crown and become the most powerful King in Europe Arthur needs to stay alive, outwit the opposition and choose his friends wisely. Meanwhile the Machiavellian King Phillip of France sees an opportunity and is manoeuvring to take advantage of the English crown for himself. The series will be shot next year in Europe with an international cast!

  1. So, we've got History (Richard 1)at one end, and Space adventure (G-LOC) at the other.
    Well, I'm tired of history (past) and rather scared by space (future), so I'll take what present has to offer, if any, especially some family comedies, no matter how stupid they might be.
    Great picture of Richard the Lion!

    1. The story around Richard The Lionheart and his brothers and children and mother is one of the most interesting one and has been done a number of times in Lion in Winter movies.

  2. Sorry about the name mistake in my comment - it should indeed be Lionheart not Lion.

  3. I can get behind a 10 part series. If we hate it, at least we know there isn't going to be too much to suffer through. If we love it, we can demand more :)

    1. With these epic series ten episodes is never enough for me :( It flies so quickly and ends even before it starts.
