SF SATURDAY: SNOWPIERCER SF SERIES GETS AN EARLIER PREMIERE DATE AT TNT WITH JENNIFER CONNELLY! EDGAR WRIGHT TO HELM SET MY HEART TO FIVE SF BOOK ADAPTATION

    'SET MY HEART TO FIVE' 
EDGAR WRIGHT TO DIRECT
Edgar Wright will helm the adaptation of the new book
In sf news this weekend, as Deadline reports, director Edgar Wright is set to helm the movie adaptation of Simon Stephenson's debut novel SET MY HEART TO FIVE which is out at Harper Collins later this year. The story takes place in an all-too human 2054 and introduces Jared, an android who undergoes an emotional awakening and embarks on a quest to convince humans that he and his kind should be permitted to feel. It’s a quest, sparked in part by Jared’s introduction to 80’s and 90’s movies, that leads to an unforgettable adventure across the West Coast of America, after he determines to write a film script that will change the world.

    'SNOWPIERCER' 
TO START ITS JOURNEY EARLIER!
Eventhough most films and series are getting postponed, TNT has decided to move the premiere of new sf series SNOWPIERCER from May
SnowPiercer will now start May 17th, Sunday
31st to May 17th! Jennifer Connelly leads the cast of the 20 episode adaptation of the legendary sf movie in which the story is set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland! The action revolves around the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are questioned in this riveting television adaptation. The story has already been told in the Chris Evans movie which was based on the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, later retitled Snowpiercer, written by Jacques Lob and illustrated by Jean-Marc Rochette

  1. I've tried to watch the movie version a couple of times, but just cannot get into it, Chris Evans or no Chris Evans.

  2. Interesting..I wonder if that means that they were ready to release all along. Jennifer Connelly always reminds me of my mother before she got sick. They are strikingly similar in appearance.

    1. The airing was postponed for years, so, yes, the series was ready long time ago :)

    1. It was one of those movies that will stay with you forever, and it had a really strong cast unlike this series version which seems to have a weak cast.

  4. I've watched the movie and, I don't remember hearing about the TV show... That's pretty cool. Maybe I should check it out.

    1. They've been planning it for four years now, it was moved from one network to other, and now it should finally air, if they don't postpone it again, that is.

  5. I may have to watch the movie, though I'm not into SF. The series will give people something to look forward to, especially if quarantine gets extended again (which I think it will. Allison and Mariah's schools have already closed for the remainder of the year).

    1. They expect the worse will be over somewhere in June, but that we still might continue with social distancing for up to two years more. First vaccine from China should be ready in June too. But unlike your country, we do have curfews, closed borders and most shops, all schools and cafes and restaurants, and older than 65 haven't been allowed out for three weeks now, poor bastards :(

    2. I just got a lot of masks from China from a few of Jason's vendors who sent them to us as a goodwill gesture, so I know I'll be wearing them any time I step foot out of the house well into summer.

    3. Nice to hear it, deary, you can iron them with a very hot iron after wearing to kill the germs and use it again.

    4. That's how people roll over here, if it is a fabric mask you can put it in boiling water.
