Few would argue that Rosamund Pike stole the show in David Fincher’s psychological thriller Gone Girl, portraying an unhinged sociopath that still sends shivers down our spines to this day. Imagine our disappointment, then, when the Oscar-nominated actress followed up Fincher’s opus with middling thriller Return To Sender.
No matter, because Deadline reports that Pike is circling her next potential project, and it’s one that goes by the name Guernsey. Mike Newell of Four Weddings and a Funeral fame is behind the camera, and it’s understood that Pike is currently in contention to play the role of Juliet Ashton – a role that’s attracted the likes of Kate Winslet, Lily James and Rebecca Ferguson in recent times.

Based on Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows's novel, the story follows a writer as she forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island in the aftermath of World War II when she decides to write a book about their experiences during the war.
The project has yet to be green lit, and financing is still coming together.

In an early foray into TV fiction production in Spain, TV giant FremantleMedia has teamed with country’s leading pay TV service, Telefonica’s Movistar Plus, to adapt Lisa Kudrow’s “Web Therapy,” the comedy series aired by Showtime in the U.S.
The Spanish version, set to premiere in February on Movistar’s upcoming premium channel #0, is being distributed globally by FremantleMedia International, which has brought the show to Natpe.
Improvised TV series toplines a local actress, stand-up comedian and TV host Eva Hache (“Got Talent Espana”), who plays Rebeca Miller, a narcissistic therapist of unspecified credentials with limited patience for others’ problems, as she develops a new brand of therapy for a three minute-online session via webcam. Miller will show an uncanny ability to turn almost every session into an opportunity to talk about herself.
