TV Casting News: Rosamund Pike to star in a short-form comedy series 'State of the Union'

Rosamund Pikestarring in a TV comedy series?!?!1 Color me surprise! I didn't expect Miss Pike to do a TV series (not that she hasn't done one before doing mostly films. She did a couple TV mini-series before P&P movie such as Wives And Daughters and Love In A Cold Climate), let alone a comedy mini-series one, since she's been super busy filming her many upcoming film projects including A Private War (with P&P co-star Tom Hollander). But when I saw the writer, Nick Hornby (who wrote the screenplay for An Education, which starred Carey Mulligan and Pike), It made sense as I remember after An Education, he wanted to work with Rosamund again and was writing and working with her in mind in an unnamed project that's been in the works for several years. So, this short-form comedy series (of ten-by-ten minutes episodes) must be the one (instead of a film) that he came up with to working on and get Rosamund on board, despite her being busy. I’m glad she pick this projec…

A 'Downton Abbey' Movie officially confirmed!

Wohoo, great news!!! It's official, a Downton Abbey movie is happening!!! It's been confirmed today by Downton Abbey's official Twitter page the official announcement. Film production is said to start this summer with the original principal cast returning. It's been three years (on ITV in the UK and overa two years ago on PBS Masterpiece here in the USA) since the very last episode aired on TV of Downton Abbey's (co-starred asIsobel Crawley) sixth and final season. Now, a film version is finally happening hopefully, we'll see Dame Penelope Wilton as one of its original cast returning (hoping along with Dan Stevens' Matthew Crawley and Jessica Brown-Findley's Lady Sybil Crawley...I know their characters' gone in the series, but I'd love to see them alive in the film). We shall see. I'll keep you all posted.

Lacey Chabert to star in 'Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe' (A Hallmark Christmas Movie)

Last year (January 2017), I previously posted here that there was a Pride and Prejudice book and TV movie related in the works. It was titled Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe, which was about a gender-swapped re-telling of the classic P&P novel. The Production for the TV movie was originally planned for April 2017 and filming of it was mentioned for that same month, but with no casting news, nothing came of it and I didn't hear any news after that. The novel (which the movie will be adapted from) of the same title:Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe was at least published by St. Martin’s Press (Macmillian Publishers) last October 17, 2017. Also, the movie was supposed to air on TV in last year's Christmas 2017 season, but that didn't happen either. Besides there was nocasting news announcement for it....until now or rather recently...and over a year later. There's finally news and update of the movie that's been in the works since it was first announced last D…
