DOMINIC WEST JOINS
BBC'S SAS: ROGUE HEROES
A few weeks ago I told you that BBC is preparing a mammoth new war series SAS: ROGUE HEROES, a dramatised account of how the world’s greatest Special Forces unit, the SAS, was formed under extraordinary
circumstances in the darkest days of World War Two, and now we have Dominic West joining Connor Swindells, Jack O’Connell and Alfie Allen, in the cast. West will play Lieutenant Colonel Wrangel Clarke. Cairo, 1941. David Stirling (Swindells) - an eccentric young officer, hospitalised after a training exercise went wrong - is bored. Convinced that traditional commando units don’t work, he creates a radical plan that flies in the face of all accepted rules of modern warfare. He fights for permission to recruit the toughest, boldest and brightest soldiers for a small undercover unit that will create mayhem behind enemy lines. More
rebels than soldiers, Stirling’s team are every bit as complicated, flawed and reckless as they are astonishingly brave and heroic. Rich with action and set-pieces, SAS: Rogue Heroes is the exhilarating story of renegade men taking monumental risks in extraordinary circumstances. The six part saga comes from Steven Knight.

LONG STORY SHORT TRAILER
WITH RAFE SPALL, JOSH LAWSON
Earlier this week I reported on Rafe Spall shooting a new Josh Lawson directed comedy LONG STORY SHORT, but one of our spylings has alerted us that the movie has not only been shot already but also has a
trailer and is airing in Australian cinemas, so check it out below. Serial procrastinator Teddy (Rafe Spall) thinks he has all the time in the world, but after an odd encounter with a stranger, he wakes up the morning after his wedding to discover that he’s jumped forward a year in his life to his first anniversary. His wife Leanne is now heavily pregnant, with a full year of marriage behind them that he doesn’t remember living. Trapped in a cycle of time jumps, transported another year ahead every few minutes, Teddy is faced with a race against time as his life crumbles around him. With the help of his best friend Sam, Teddy tries to piece together where it all went wrong and, as his life flashes before his eyes, Teddy must learn how to live life in the precious moments to win back the woman he loves, even if it’s just for a second.
