PERIOD SET FRIDAY: BRADLEY JAMES, SEAN BEAN, DANIEL SHARMAN, RAOUL BOVA, SARAH PARISH JOIN ‘MEDICI: MASTERS OF FLORENCE’ EPIC TV SERIES 2ND SEASON!
The most beautiful piece of info ever as the highlight of the coming period set ! Those who know the spy probably remember when I said I was gonna ditch MEDICI: MASTERS OF FLORENCE after it was shockingly announced that Richard Madden won’t be starring in the second season, but now that the new cast has been announced for the sophomore run of the magnificent epic TV series I’m definitely watching since our dearest King Arthur Bradley James (Yessss…)has been cast in the role of Giuliano Medici! The main star of the second season, which starts shooting next month, will, however, be Daniel Sharman as his brother Lorenzo the Magnificent, the grandson of Madden’s Cosimo Medici who was the star of the first season. The eight part series will also include Julian Sands as Lorenzo and Giuliano’s father, Piero, and Sebastian De Souza as their friend, Sandro Botticelli. The pope will be played, believe it or not, by sinfully gorgeous Italian superstar Raoul Bova and Sean Bean will portray the family’s greatest rival and enemy Jacoppo Pazzi. Sarah Parish (who is no stranger to epic series as she already starred in Pillars of the Earth and Atlantis) will play the new, older version of Lorenzo’s mother while Alessandra Mastronardi will play his mistress! Italian RAI and Netflix are producing the series again to air it sometime next year. De Souza, Sharman and Bova, left to right, will star in the second seasonMASTERS OF FLORENCE
The second season of the best epic series in last ten years, will be set 20 years after the events of the first. A young Lorenzo, the grandson of Richard Madden’s character Cosimo from the first series, is forced totake over the family bank, which has been mismanaged by his father. As Lorenzo, his brother, and Botticelli set about trying to make Florence a great financial and cultural center, they face off against the Pazzi family, and Pope Sixtus IV. Alessandra Mastronardi and Sarah Parish will be the female leads
AARON TAYLOR JOHNSON JOINS CHRIS PINE IN EPIC ‘OUTLAW KING’
Great epic news today, people!

As the son of the first noble to support William Wallace when he fomented the first movement toward independence from the English, Douglas saw his father’s lands given away, and after being denied them by the English king, he joined Robert the Bruce as an outcast properly motivated to avenge his loss. Together, they learned guerilla fighting tactics that led to years of surprise attacks, sacked castles and, finally, independence. David Mackenzie is directing.

SPOTLIGHT ON ‘MEDICI: MASTERS OF FLORENCE’ EPIC TV SERIES WITH RICHARD MADDEN & DUSTIN HOFFMAN WITH NEW SET PHOTOS
UK, Ireland, US, Canada on Netflix
is set in Florence in the early 15th Century. Cosimo de’ Medici (Richard Madden) finds himself at the helm of his supremely wealthy, banking dynasty family, when his father, Giovanni (Dustin Hoffman) dies suddenly. However Cosimo is concealing a dangerous secret – Giovanni was murdered. Now Cosimo must unearth his killer in order to protect the wealth and power of the family. It is this wealth and power that has elevated the family to a status equal to that of the nobility, much to the distaste of many of Florence’s old noble families. It is also this wealth and power that has brought much political and social influence to the Medici. However the Medici are unique in that they are neither nobility nor commoners, they are the new ‘middle class’. Aided by his brother, Lorenzo de’ Medici (Stuart Martin) and his trusted servant, Marco
The Medici came to power at a time of great social and economic inequality and they were great disrupters since their banking practices led to the creation of a middle class, making them unimaginably wealthy. The Medici in turn used their vast power and resources to challenge traditional thinking, ushering in a new era of revolutionary art and science such as the world had never seen.
