1ST LOOK AT SAM CLAFLIN
AS COUNT MONTE CRISTO
Now, here is a totally secretive project, so secretive that we have not even heard about it before today even though we are the biggest fans of Sam Claflin. Digital Spy has found first set pic of him in new period set series THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO which is currently filming for unknown broadcaster in an Italian British co-production. French actress Ana Girardot is also filming with him in Paris. The project should not be confused with French movie Le Comte de Monte Cristo with Pierre Niney, which is out next year.
GAL GADOT'S CLEOPATRA
IS STILL VERY MUCH ON
At least that is what Gal Gadot said in a recent interview. It does not have a premiere date nor the start of production one, but we know that new CLEOPATRA will
be directed by Kari Skogland with Laeta Kalogridis writing the script and Cleopatra being shown as not just a seductress. She was the daughter of Ptolemy, ancestor of the leader of Alexander the Great’s army. When Rome’s ruler Julius Caesar’s mentor and rival Pompey fled to Egypt after a brutal war for control of the empire, Egypt became a fixation of Roman rulers. Two siblings battled for the throne of Egypt. After winning that internal struggle by appealing personally to Caesar, Cleopatra had a complicated relationship with Rome, becoming the lover of Caesar and later Marc Antony. The latter alliance would become the undoing of both Antony and Cleopatra. Gadot, who is producing the movie, said she wants to celebrate the legacy of Cleopatra and honor this amazing historic icon!
