COLIN FIRTH & RACHEL WEISZNew character posters have been released featuring Oscar winners Rachel Weisz and Colin Firth from THE MERCY a true life drama movie scheduled to premiere this February from The Theory of Everything director James Marsh!
ALONE AT SEA
Colin plays yachtsman Donald Crowhurst whose disastrous attempt to win the 1968 Golden Globe Race ends up with him creating an outrageous account of travelling the world alone by sea. The adventure ended in disgrace and tragedy, after he duped family and race organisers (since neither him nor his boat were ready for the ocean crossing, he started sending false reports on his locations over the radio struggling to keep up the pretence), finally taking his life. Rachel Weisz who plays his wife is also joined in the cast by talented British thespians you love David Thewlis and Sam Hoare! Kate Winslet was originally supposed to play the role Weisz was given later on. Colin Firth is actually twenty years older than Crowhurst was when he started his race around the globe! Our favourite Studio canal is producing! Johann Johannsson who composed the music in Theory of Everything is doing the score for this movie as well! The movie was directed by James Marsh
Colin suffered hip dislocation during the shooting. Sails into theaters near the beginning of February.
BBC TO TURN ‘THE BIRDS’INTO A NEW TV DRAMA!
This has not been officially confirmed yet, but, as ‘Digital Spy’ reports today, BBC is planning on turning famous THE BIRDS novel byDaphne du Maurier into a TV movie. Unlike the famous Hitchcock’s classic movie, this one will be true to the novel with the action being set in British Cornwall! The new television adaptation will be set in picturesque rural Cornwall, where a farmhand and his community is being terrorised by flocks of birds and seagulls shortly after the end of the Second World War.
A young Englishman plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.
