PAUL MESCAL TO LEAD CARMEN MUSICAL MOVIE ADAPTATION! INTERGALACTIC SKY'S SF SERIES FIRST LOOK WITH CRAIG PARKINSON, ELEANOR TOMLINSON, SAVANNAH STEYN

  PAUL MESCAL  
TO LEAD CARMEN ADAPTATION
You've seen Paul in Deceived and Normal People
But as far as I've got it, it won't be a direct big screen adaptation of the famous opera by George Bizet, but a musical based on it. Benjamin Millepied, a dancer and a choreographer, is directing this as his first movie with  Paul Mescal in the male lead, Melissa Barrera in the titular role and Spanish icon Rossy de Palma in a supporting role. The film that starts filming over in Australia this January will see Mescal playing Aidan opposite Barrera's Carmen in this tragic love story. Not sure who Aiden is, but in the opera, the male lead was Don José, a naive soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen. Written by Oscar winner Alexander Dinelaris, Jr. the film will have an entirely original score and nine new songs! I'm guessing they'er aiming at new Moulin Rouge.

 INTERGALACTIC SF SERIES 
FIRST LOOK AT THE CREW
Sky has released the first photo from their new eight part sf series INTERGALACTIC following fearless young cop and galactic pilot, Ash Harper (Savannah Steyn), who has her glittering career ripped away from her after being wrongly convicted of a treasonous crime and exiled to a distant prison colony. But on the way there, Ash’s fellow convicts stage a mutiny and

seize control of their prison transfer ship. With the flight crew dead, mob leader Tula Quik (Sharon Duncan-Brewster), is intent on reaching the free world – Arcadia – with her gang; and Ash is the only pilot who can get them there. Ash is forced to join them on the run towards a distant galaxy and an uncertain future. From the fringes of outer space to the depths of human emotion, Intergalactic is a drama set in space, but with its feet firmly on the ground. Craig Parkinson and Eleanor Tomlinson also star.

  1. I feel like I could go for a musical right about now. They usually aren't my favorite, but we need a little music in this otherwise dreary world now.

    1. I just don't get why they call it Carmen, when it will have different characters, entirely new music and a total reimagining. How is then that a Carmen? I will riot if they don't put Carmen's famous aria Lamour in it, but I guess they won't.

  2. I've stopped asking why they do what they do a long time ago. They hardly ever make sense these days.

  3. I agree with you. It does sound like a new Moulin Rouge! So, they'll be 9 new sounds. Will they include any originals? lol

    1. I cannot imagine Carmen without L amour, it is not Carmen without it, we all sung it while showering.
