MORGAN LLYWELYN'S HISTORICAL NOVEL LION OF IRELAND ON THE FIRST HIGH KING OF IRELAND TO BECOME EPIC TV SERIES! ARISE, AN EPIC MOVIE ON DEBORAH, THE ONLY FEMALE WARRIOR OF BIBLICAL ISRAEL

'LION OF IRELAND'   
TO BE TURNED INTO EPIC SERIES
Here's an epic delight for you this Monday: Michael Scott will turn Morgan Llywelyn's novel LION OF IRELAND (which has been sold in more than 40 million copies so far) into TV series following Brian Boru, the
Brian Boru was an 11th century hero
greatest king Ireland has ever known, the man who liberated the Irish nation from centuries of Viking rule. It also follows the 11th century women who shaped his life and, ultimately, history itself: Fiona, a Druid priestess; Dierdre, a warrior princess, and Gormflaith a powerful Celtic Queen. These women fight alongside, and sometimes against, Brian in an age where women were the equal of men, where they had the right to own property in their own name, train as warriors, and also divorce – taking from the marriage everything they had brought to it. Ranged against Brian and his allies are the might of the Viking world who will stop at nothing to destroy the upstart Irish king. The series will follow multiple perspectives: Irish, Viking, and Druid, and will culminate in the epic Battle of Clontarf.

'ARISE' EPIC MOVIE  
ON HISTORICAL ISRAELI WARRIOR
The movie will follow Deborah from the Bible
Speaking of strong ladies from history, Ben Howard is set to make a faith based historical movie ARISE based on a screenplay written by Paige Collins and Mark Freiburger. It will be the Biblical account of the only female warrior in the history of ancient Israel. The story follows a people who have undergone years of oppression at the hands of King Jabin of Canaan. Against this backdrop, an ordinary woman named Deborah is called by God to rise up and deliver an unexpected victory for the chosen people of Israel. The story will be set during the time of The Book of Judges.

I can’t wait to see the cast list for Lion of Ireland. I hope we get some hunky Irish eye candy in it.

Ooooo, Brian Boru -- I'll watch for that one!

Deborah was a Judge of Ancient Israel, i.e. a leader and a dispenser of justice. I'm not sure that she personally was a warrior. Her army general was named Barack. The "Victory Song of Deborah" in the Bible celebrates their big win over the enemy. I might browse through it again just to see if I'm right or wrong about this.

should be uber fun! Hope they get Michael Fassbender, he's been dying to play any of the Irish heroes for ages

Theresa Mahoney said...

Kudos to those who make films about portions of history that are usually only found in books. I want so much to view many of the films listed here & hope those in a foreign language will have English subtitles so I can understand the dialogue.

they are getting more and more foreign shows on Amazon and Netflix, and even producing some on their own. Foreign shows are almost always superior to the English ones.
