Downton Abbey Season 5 Trailer: Change Is Coming to the Fanciest Soap on Television

23 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ready your formal wear and prepare your manners accordingly: the Downton Abbey Season 5 trailer is here.  Fresh off the unveiling of some new images from the upcoming season of the ensemble drama, ITV has released the first footage from the batch of new episodes.  As you’ll see in the trailer, the theme of Season 5 appears to be change in its many forms.  Times are changing, relationships are changing, and by golly Carson is not having any of it.  I enjoy Downton Abbey quite a bit.  Sure it’s essentially a big, sweeping soap opera in a serious drama’s clothing, but it’s fun and engaging and wholly engrossing; the world building of the show is tremendous.  As such, I’m looking forward to seeing what twists and turns are in store for Season 5. Watch the first Downton Abbey Season 5 trailer after the jump.  The series returns to ITV »

Downton Abbey returns for season 5 in September in the UK and it looks like the modern world has finally caught up with the staid British aristocrats. And, that’s exactly the problem, groans head butler Charles Carson, played by Jim Carter. The new trailer only provides snapshots of the upcoming season, but it looks like the Abbey will be rocked by scandal. The whole clan is there: Dame Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter, Hugh Bonneville, Joanne Froggatt, Elizabeth McGovern, Rob James-Collier, Brendan Coyle, Laura Carmichael, Allen Leech, Lily James, Sophie Mcshera and Tom Cullen. ...Read More »

Jack Huston To Suffer From ‘Pride And Prejudice And Zombies’

13 August 2014 5:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

One of the books that started the mash-up fad has been in development for quite some time. Based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic, the film sees an old fashioned romance blossom in a world populated with the undead. The books have received mixed reviews, with many saying the story doesn’t get past the joke title, but there’s still a lot to enjoy, although my personal favourite would have to be Sense And Sensibility And Sea-Monsters. Writer Grahame-Smith has already entered the world of film with a script for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows and an adaptation of his own book Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.

Jack Huston has now been cast as George Wickham, joining the already cast Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy, and Lily James and Bella Heathcote as Elizabeth Bennet and one of her sisters. Igby Goes Down Director Burr Steers helms »

Jack Huston On For Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

12 August 2014 10:30 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Just last week, we reported that long-gestating Seth Grahame-Smith novel adaptation Pride And Prejudice And Zombies was moaning, groaning and shuffling its way back to active development. As part of the story, we noted that Boardwalk Empire’s Jack Huston was in talks to join the madness. Those talks were clearly successful, because he now has a deal to play Mr. Wickham.For those needing their memories jogged, the film will tackle a mash up of Jane Austen’s classic tale of manners and moods with zombie action. Lily James will play heroine Elizabeth Bennett, who must split her time between the romantic attentions and grumpy boorishness of Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) and fighting off legions of the “sorry stricken” Aka the undead. Bella Heathcote, meanwhile, will be one of the Bennett sisters. Wickham will apparently be in favour of training zombies to fight in wars, though we can see »

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Casts 'Boardwalk Empire' Star Jack Huston

12 August 2014 9:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one week after the languishing Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was given a new shot of life by Cross Creek Pictures, Jack Huston has signed on to play Wickham in this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel.

Lily James signed on to play Elizabeth Bennett, with Sam Riley playing Mr. Darcy and Bella Heathcote playing Elizabeth's sister, all characters from Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice novel. Seth Grahame-Smith's novel is an "expanded" version of the original novel, where Elizabeth's quest for love is hampered by a vicious zombie outbreak.

Jack Huston, who we reported last week was in talks for an unspecified role, has now signed on to play Wickham, a blond lieutenant who Elizabeth falls for. Wickham plans on teaching these zombies how to fight, winning Elizabeth over with his theories on the undead soldiers.

Burr Steers (Emperor) is directing from a script he co-wrote with David O. Russell, »

The Americans’ Matthew Rhys Will Be A Rival Chef For Bradley Cooper

8 August 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the biggest Emmy snubs this year was Matthew Rhys from the Best Leading Actor in a Drama Series category. His equally chilling and compelling turn as Kgb agent Philip Jennings on The Americans was the high point of the show’s second season. However, he was passed over due to a packed TV landscape (and the inclusion of two True Detective actors in that category). Regardless, those looking to see Rhys scowl and seduce even more are in luck, as the actor is now attached to an untitled culinary film from director John Wells starring Bradley Cooper.

Matthew Rhys will play a character named – get this – Reece. (It is no wonder he got the part – perhaps it was written with the Brothers and Sisters star in mind.) Reece is a rival chef of Cooper’s Adam Jones. In the film, Jones is a two Michelin star chef in »

‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ film will live again

5 August 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Before becoming the producer of the proposed "Beetlejuice" sequel, rewriting "Fantastic Four" and signing on to direct Disney’s "Something Wicked This Way Comes," Seth Grahame-Smith penned novels that mixed historical and literary fiction with horror elements. The first of those, "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" hit stores in 2009 and became a huge hit. A film was soon in the works, with a script by David O. Russell ("American Hustle"), but director and studio changes led to a long delay. Until now. According to Deadline, the film will start shooting in September, with Lily James ("Downton Abbey") as Elizabeth Bennet, Sam Riley ("Maleficent) as Mr. Darcy and Bella Heathcote ("Dark Shadows") as one of Elizabeth’s sisters. Burr Steers, who helmed "17 Again" and "Charlie St. Cloud," is directing. The adaptation has been in the works since 2010, with a variety of stars attached, from Natalie Portman to Emma Stone.
