Haley Bennett and Chris Evans set for Red Sea Diving Resort

21 March 2017 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Variety is reporting that Haley Bennett (The Girl on the Train) is in talks to join Chris Evans (Captain America: Civil War) in the cast of Red Sea Diving Resort, which is being written and directed by Gideon Raff (Tyrant).

Based on the 1981 rescue of Ethiopian Jews to Israel, the film “picks up in 1977, when Israel’s Mossad spy agency was given an assignment far different from its usual cloak-and-dagger activities. It was ordered by then-Prime Minister Menachem Begin to rescue thousands of Ethiopian Jews in Sudan and deliver them to the Jewish state. No stranger to action in enemy countries, the agency established a covert forward base in a deserted holiday village in Sudan and deployed a handful of operatives to launch and oversee the exodus to the Promised Land, by sea and by air, in the early 1980s.”

Bennett’s recent roles include The Magnificent Seven and Rules Don’t Apply, »

Jill Soloway To Produce New Show About Texas Women’s Rodeo For Amazon

8 March 2017 8:17 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jill Soloway and Andrea Sperling’s Topple Productions will produce a new limited series for Amazon about an all women’s Texas rodeo, Deadline reports.

Written by Cassie Pappas (“Tyrant”), the show is a period drama set during World War II. When the men go to war, the women take up their chaps and form the first All Girl Rodeo. The premise sounds a bit like Penny Marshall’s 1992 classic, “A League of Their Own,” which told the true story of the first female professional baseball league, also a wartime substitution. If this latest series bears any resemblance to that beloved feminist flick, it is sure to be a hit with nostalgic Millennials.

The Oa season 2: what can we expect?

2 March 2017 3:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Den Of Geek Mar 2, 2017

Netflix has renewed The Oa, which was a surprise hit with both viewers and critics, for a second season. Here's what we know about it.

Netflix really dropped a bombshell last December. After only a few oblique social media teases, they debuted the trailer for their mysterious new supernatural series The Oa on the exact same week of the show’s premiere, but having resonated with audiences, Netflix has no further need for any PR cloak and dagger when it comes to their mysterious new gem, proven by the fact they greenlit season 2 and announced it publicly straight off the bat.

The streaming service chose to announce the second season of The Oa with a mysterious teaser, naturally.
