SEE NICOLE KIDMAN & JAVIER BARDEM AS LUCILLE BALL AND DESI IN BEING THE RICARDOS TRAILER! SKANDAR AND THE UNICORN THIEF FANTASY SAGA GETS MOVIE ADAPTATION!

  NEW FANTASY ADAPTATION 
SCANDAR & THE UNICORN THIEF
Skandar will be out next spring
This is one of them books that haven't even been published yet but have already been sold for a movie adaptation after causing a race among the publishers to get it for their own house. In the end SCANDAR AND THE UNICORN THIEF was bought by Simon and Schuster for a seven digit sum and will be published next April written by A.F. Steadman. Now Sony Pictures has set Jon Croker to adapt the novel series which  follows a thirteen year old boy whose dreams of becoming a unicorn rider are disrupted when an emerging enemy steals the land’s most powerful unicorn. It was the biggest known deal for a children's debut book.

 BEING THE RICARDOS TRAILER 
SEE NICOLE AS LUCILLE BALL
The Ricardos arrive December 21st
The fact you don't really see Nicole Kidman as Lucille in the trailer tells you a lot, right? It is one of those castings in which everybody expects the actress to do a terrible job and I have a feeling that is what will happen here as well. BEING THE RICARDOS will arrive to Amazon Prime December 21st! The film, which also sees Javier Bardem playing her husband Desi Arnaz,  shows the audience a week in the lives' of Lucy and Desi on the set of their famous sitcom I Love Lucy. It was a week of events that nearly cost them everything. The film was both written and directed by Aaron Sorkin who gave himself certain artistical freedoms while depicting the couple.

    1. She is always so sadly miscast in everything. Not the worst of actresses, but certainly borderline terrible. And yet, she has so many fans who would try to convince you she is nuanced and amazing.

  2. I thought Nicole Kidman was really good in The Interpreter but I don't care for all her roles. Not sure she can pull this one off either and that's a shame since I really loved I Love Lucy.

    1. I liked her in Dogville and Railway Man and hated her in pretty much everything else.

  3. Ugh, I would have loved that Lucy Ricardo flick and Nicole Kidman had to go and mess it up.

    1. It is interesting that their daughter likes the cast and the film, but she has to, does not she?

  4. It’s blasphemy having Nicole try to fill Lucy’s shoes. I could have watched that with almost any other actress, but not Nicole :(

    1. That is always the thing with her, everybody else would be better in her roles.

    2. She does not have a comedic bone in her body. What were they smoking when they cast her!?

    3. The same thing they smoke when they cast Chalamet in pretty much anything and Olivia Coleman too. And Gillian Anderson and Claire Foy and Oscar Isaacs, the list is really long.
