WW2 EPIC FILM WITH KENNETH BRANAGH AND TOM HARDY?
It seems Christopher Nolan is planning a WAR AND PEACE reunion for our dearest Jack Lowden and his colleague from the Russian saga Aneurin Barnard since they're both in talks for WW2 epic movie DUNKIRK! 'Deadline' reports that Lowden is up for one of two lead roles together with newcomer Fionn White head. This massive action adventure project will deal with the World War II evacuation of Dunkirk which took place from May till June 1940, a British military operation that saved some 330,000 Allied soldiers trapped in the harbour and surrounded by the German army. While most other roles will be cast among unknowns, the cast will also include three major names Oscar winners Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy!

Speaking of new TV projects at ABC, as you know they're also preparing a pilot episode for fantasy adventure series TIME AFTER TIME  which will chronicle the epic adventures of young H.G. Wells (Freddie Stroma) who travels through time chasing Jack the Ripper (Josh Bowman) who, in our day, is a brilliant and charismatic surgeon. Upon arriving in modern New York, he is captivated by museum curator Jane Walker (Genesis Rodriguez). Now, the new addition to the cast is rnb star Jordin Sparks who has been cast as a New York stylist Jesse Givens who is also Jane Walker’s roommate and good friend. Regina Taylor will play a billionaire who owns and protects the Time Machine.

  1. It was only due to British blundering in the first place that the Dunkirk evacuation was necessary. I hope the movie covers that as well.

    1. Fingers crossed!
      Brits were crazy as ever even then. They bombed us in 1941 even though we were their allies... go figure...

  4. After sounds intriguing!

    I remember when Jordin Sparks was on American Idol. Crazy that she is so grown up now!

  5. I like the idea of After.

    I also like Jordan Sparks. I am sure she'll be great in her role here.

    1. I wish she had more new music for us, but those who were the best from Idol, her and Adam Lambert, don't get enough space in the media

    2. I was thinking that we haven't heard much musically from her lately as soon as I saw this. She was one of the better Idols from the show. Though, I am happy to see that Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are still giving us good stuff. I don't recall much from anyone else who won from there.

    3. She has a song last year, methinks, but it was some crap, both her and Derulo wen't shitty with music after they split :)
      I can't stand Clarkson, though, she is so mediocre and yet so vile on tongue :) That wench lost it with me when she trashed Ryan Tedder. Ain't nobody messes with Ryan and suffers no wrath from me :)

  6. TIme After Time. Sigh. One of my favorite childhood movies. (I was a weird child. As several of my favorite movies from that period will demonstrate.) Not sure if I'm happy for a TV remake or not.
