Juliet Stevenson: 'Bend It Like Beckham was screaming out to be made into a musical'

30 April 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Juliet Stevenson is as excited as anyone for the upcoming Bend It Like Beckham musical.

The Truly, Madly, Deeply actress played the mother of Jules (Keira Knightley) in the original 2002 film, which has been adapted for the stage by director Gurinder Chadha.

Stevenson told Digital Spy: "I'm really delighted because it's such a fantastic story, and I can see it lending itself very well to the stage.

"I often think, 'No, that's a bad idea, don't make a musical out of that movie', but Bend It Like Beckham is screaming out to be made into one."

She continued: "There's so much song and dance, and it's such a vibrant story. It's more than just a story, it's got a lot to say about what it is to be a British-Asian and the battle between the two competing cultures. [Chadha] has such a capacity to make that into something joyous and funny. »

Timothy Spall: 'I turned down The Enfield Haunting at first, I was terrified'

30 April 2015 5:04 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Timothy Spall has revealed that he originally turned down The Enfield Haunting because he found it too disturbing.

The Mr Turner actor plays paranormal investigator Maurice Grosse in the Sky Living horror drama, which is based on actual events that took place at a house in Enfield in 1977.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Spall said that it was the story's other complexities that later attracted him to star in the project.

"What I take from whether something's good or not is the first read, and I have to say that when I first read it, I was terrified," he said. "I was actually a bit disturbed by it.

"It's quite an achievement where you're just sitting reading, and I don't want to sound self-indulgent, but I read quite a lot of scripts. So when you're reading and you get the hairs go up on the back of the neck [it's impressive].

New Trailer For The Enfield Haunting

13 April 2015 5:27 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Things will go bump in the night – and probably the daytime, too – in Sky Living’s The Enfield Haunting. The three-parter, debuting on the channel in early May, dramatises the events of 1977 that, if you’ll forgive us for this, put the “eeeee!” into EN3. Here’s a new trailer to give you a better idea of the dark forces at work. And those dark forces aren’t limited to the seemingly supernatural phenomena terrifying the Hodgson family, Anyone allergic to beige, corduroy or John Holmes facial hair, might want to raincheck this. The faithful ‘70s milieu has been painstakingly recreated in a series that juxtaposes the dark, supernatural goings-on of Green Street with the sheer, thumping mundanity of north London in the year of strikes, inflation and the Queen’s Silver Jubilee.  Timothy Spall and Matthew Macfadyen play the investigating agents whose very presence in the house may stir »

Atlantis series 2 episode 7 review: A Fate Worse Than Death

10 April 2015 1:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Atlantis' cancellation proves all the more disappointing when the show has so clearly upped its game, as A Fate Worse Than Death shows...

This review contains spoilers.

2.7 A Fate Worse Than Death

To start, a brief recap of this week's action: with news that the Queen is to marry Jason, Pasiphae is not happy, not only because she is Jason's mother, but moreover because of her desire to seize the throne for herself from Ariadne and take her - in her mind - rightful place as ruler of the kingdom of Atlantis.

It's not from Pasiphae and her cronies that Ariadne must defend herself, her desire to marry a low-born is causing trouble internally. Despite this, she’s intent on carrying out her wishes, despite warnings from her own military adviser.

As The Oracle takes the offering of blood which will bond the two lovers in the eyes of the Gods, »

Estate agents spooked for Sky Living's The Enfield Haunting

9 April 2015 11:14 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A group of estate agents have had a fright as Sky Living prepares to launch The Enfield Haunting.

The television channel invited the agents to the "haunted house" to spook them for a promotion of the three-part show.

Described as "the most-documented account of poltergeist activity in British history," The Enfield Haunting stars BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall, Juliet Stevenson and Matthew Macfadyen.

The show is based on real events in 1977 which were set in an ordinary house that experienced extraordinary happenings.

From knockings on furniture and the apparent presence of a poltergeist, Spall and Macfadyen star as the investigators trying to work out what is happening in the home.

Adapted from Guy Lyon Playfair's book This House is Haunted, The Enfield Haunting begins on Sky Living on Sunday, May 3. »

Bend It Like Beckham: Where are the cast of the 2002 box office hit now?

22 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.

Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.

As the cast continues preparing for the West End stage adaptation of Gurinder Chadha's screen hit ahead of previews on May 15, find out what the movie's ensemble cast went on to achieve - including who is coming back for the musical...

First Look At The Enfield Haunting

29 January 2015 4:20 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Amityville, the Black Hills of Maryland, Eden Lake… Enfield? Okay, the sleepy north London suburb isn’t as synonymous with horror as those other locales, but residents might beg to differ. The Enfield Haunting, a Sky Living drama capturing the spooky goings-on that took place in the Hodgson household in 1977, will, judging by these first-look stills, be both clammily scary and full of outlandish ‘70s fashions. Any malign presence undeterred by Timothy Spall’s demonic shirt/jacket/tie combo immediately has our fear and respect.Spall stars as Maurice Grosse, a newcomer to the world of paranormal research and a man recovering from recent tragedy. He finds himself drawn in by the strange events of Green Street, EN3. Before you can say “Don’t go there!”, Britain’s answer to Peter Venkman begins investigating the poltergeisty phenomonon, as his wife, Betty (Juliet Stevenson), finds out to her increasing dismay.The »
