New films in production

Post by Aelfcyn »

There are two new films coming out next year ( hopefully ): Valhalla Rising ( with Mads Mikkelsen as the lead ) which looks like it will be good, and Eagle of the Ninth, which is an adaption of Rosemary Sutcliff's book of that name, although apparently the Romans are all going to be played by Americans and have American accents....why, ffs :roll: ....personally, from what I've read so far, they're going to completely butcher the book, but meh - will see it anyway ! Kevin McDonald is producing it...whoever he is....

Just thought I'd let youse all know, as I'm chomping at the bit for these !

Hopefully they'll use the CGI Centurions from "BattleStar Galactica" rather than bothering with more in depth research. It'll look great!!! :wink:

Oh b**ger. Another childhood fave given the Hollywood treatment. Just getting over what they've done to 'The Dark is Rising'. I suspect that the studio execs think that if they don't use American actors, the home audience won't see the movie.

way diminishes the strength of the enemy." Niccolo Machiavelli
