CHRISTINA HENDRICKS, EMILY WATSON IN WW1 'ANGEL MAKERS' MOVIE! 'ANIMORPHS', 'ROADSIDE PICNIC' SF BOOKS GET ADAPTATIONS! CHESTER SEE LEADS 'OVER THE TOP' SERIES AT ABC FAMILY

'ANGEL MAKERS' WW1 MOVIE
CASTS CHRISTINA HENDRICKS, EMILY WATSON AND MAX RIEMELT
A new historical movie for you and it already has a cast, a stellar one! As 'Deadline' reports Christina Hendricks, Emily Watson, Max Riemelt and Abbie Cornish have all joined WW1 drama THE ANGEL MAKERS! Jon Amiel is to direct the story, set in the Yorkshire Moors in 1917. Survival is key when the men leave to join the allied fight in France, leaving their wives to maintain the farms. At their disposal, an internment camp of German POWs, all too happy to offer up their services, ignite an air of dangerous romance. Affairs begin and lust blossoms into love as the women of Yorkshire Moors discover something far more powerful: independence. When the husbands return, everyone turns to Sarah Rigg (Christina Hendricks), the midwife and witch doctor at the heart of the village, to mix the potions that can save a life… or take it away.

NEW BOOK ADAPTATIONS
'ANIMORPHS' GETS A MOVIE  
Now, here's an interesting movie adaptation: Universal is planning on turning K.A. Applegate's bestselling series of novels ANIMORPHS into a movie! More than 50 novels in the series revolve around young people who come across a crashed alien spaceship. The dying alien gives them powers to transform into any animal they want. Using those powers the teenagers then fight against other aliens who have secretly invaded the planet disguised as humans. These books were previously adapted into a two season series over at Nickelodeon.
'ROADSIDE PICNIC' TV SERIES
Another adaptation, but this time a small screen one will be for beloved Russian sf novel ROADSIDE PICNIC from Arkady and Boris Strugatsky which is to be turned into TV series at WGN America! GAME OF THRONES director Alan Taylor is helming the story about an alien visitation to planet Earth, whose aftermath has led to the creation of “Zones” in the areas where the aliens had possibly landed. Such zones exhibit strange and dangerous phenomena not understood by humans, and contain artefacts with inexplicable, seemingly supernatural properties!

    1. We do love her! Too bad she can't seem to find a new show for her... every one she touches doesn't go into production :(

  2. Man boobs! I knew it. Emily Watson? Sounds familiar. I mean that literally because she sounds just like Angie. Yikes!

  3. Another WWI series sounds good to me. It looks like there will be serious eye candy for the men on this one. She is gorgeous and what a figure.

    I am loving The Crimson Field. The characters are so complex and the storylines are good. I do think Nurse Quayle is going to turn out to be quite a lot of trouble. So far Matron is my favourite because she must balance discipline and kindness. Although Marshall isn't in the story a lot yet, I think she will develop into a brave and competent woman.

    Now that I have your address I can pop your teas into the post next week. Now I'm off to watch more Crimson Field!

    1. That figure is mostly corsets, dear, there are pics of her from the beach and she doesn't have such a waist in real life :) Nobody does....

      Glad you do, I knew you would. The nurse will be one of the leading characters all till the end. A very nice and deep character she is. I loved the two young doctors too!

      I think you will love BANISHED as well, because it has that kind of depth as well. VILLAGE too!

      Oooh, dahlink, that is ever so lovely from you!

    2. I finished Crimson Field and started Banished. i'm already completely invested in the welfare of the characters. It was so satisfying to see that horrid blacksmith be murdered. But I think that body is going to surface, In my experience, they always do :0)

    3. dear God, woman, you will watch them all in a few days :))) BANISHED was so good, intriguing and profoundly written that I still can't bloody believe it wasn't renewed for a second season! Dahlink, expect all kinds of hell in each episode.... they never get any rest... even the very ending will leave you speechless! I love me Russell Tovey!

  6. Angel Makers sounds seriously good. Actually they all look good.

  7. Wow! I can't believe they have waited so long to do an Animorphs movie. I used to have a customer at the bookstore I managed that would insist I call him every time a new one came in. He would have loved it. Hell, he still might! ;)
