Liam Neeson May Captain Narco Sub

23 March 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Narco Sub is one of those projects that just floats in the depths of development for years while filmmakers come and go. Originally targeted for Tony Scott, it now appears to be surfacing with Game Of Thrones veteran Brian Kirk directing and Liam Neeson wanted for the lead. The thriller, which has a script by David Guggenheim, finds a disgraced American naval officer (Neeson, if he signs) forced to pilot a submarine loaded with cocaine past the Us Coast Guard’s watchful eye. And given what happened the last time Neeson was aboard a cinematic sub in K-19: The Widowmaker, does anyone expect this mission to go well?Kirk, whose only film-directing gig so far was indie drama Middletown, nevertheless has plenty of TV experience in addition to Thrones. He’s worked on the likes of Dexter, Great Expectations, Luther, and Boardwalk Empire. He’s taking over a project that, »

Jk Rowling's The Casual Vacancy: BBC changes 'grim' ending

10 February 2015 3:16 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Scriptwriter says viewers need ‘some kind of redemptive moment’ having watched three hours of the Sunday night drama

The BBC’s adaptation of Jk Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy promises to surprise even viewers who have read the book after screenwriter Sarah Phelps changed the original ending because it was too “grim”.

Phelps, a former EastEnders scriptwriter who has previously worked on the BBC’s adaptations of Great Expectations and Oliver Twist, said the climax to the novel was too bleak for viewers who needed “some kind of redemptive moment at the end of it all”.

J.K. Rowling's 'The Casual Vacancy' Will Hit HBO in April

6 February 2015 7:40 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Casual Vacancy," the mini-series based on J.K. Rowling's adult mystery, will land Stateside on HBO in April. The three-part show will premiere on BBC One on February 15.

In the meantime, there's a little teaser trailer to introduce us to the quaint British town of Pagford. It all looks veddy proper and jolly indeed, but naturally there are all sorts of grown-up, non-wizard-y secrets lurking just below the surface. However, it probably doesn't help that Dumbledore is part of the ensemble cast. Just saying. It also stars Rory Kinnear, Emily Bevan, Julia McKenzie, Keeley Hawes, Monica Dolan, and Abigail Lawrie. The adaptation was written by Sarah Phelps, who also penned scripts for "Great Expectations," "Camelot," and "EastEnders."

"The Casual Vacancy" was J.K. Rowling's first novel outside of the "Harry Potter" series. Her second, "The Cuckoo's Calling," was released under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, although soon enough the author's real identity was revealed. »
