Spartacus Casting News - Maybe A New Spartacus or Maybe Not


No news of the new Sparty is getting everyone antsy and here is another piece of news to add to the rumour mix.

Back in November it was reported that three actors were being sent to New Zealand to see who would be selected for the Spartacus role: it was narrowed down to three actors: Stephen Amell, Aiden Turner and Liam McIntyre. This news was 9 November 2010 and on 13 November 2010 we had the news that two of the actors Stephen Amell and Aiden Turner were released.

and now today 01 December 2010 we have the following news from Stephen on his blog:

Stephen Amell has written the following on his blog:
I just got offered the biggest job of my career. It came on offer because of three stellar auditions (for this show) earlier in the year. . Read more

Did the rumours (by Deadline) of Liam being the frontrunner prove not to be true and now Stephen has been offered the role or is Stephen talking about another huge role?

Congratulations to Stephen on his big role (whatever it is) and we wait for official news on who has won the role of a lifetime.

Stephen later tweets:Further sign that my life might actually be perfect: The character name on my new job: Brady. #TheGreatTomBrady -

So that rumour is just that a rumour. Many thanks to @TalkingLBS on twitter for the update!

Viva Bianca
- Viva will be in two movies for 2011 - X and Panic at Rock Island.

Viva's movie X which will be seen next year has been sold to Germany, UK and Canada. Sales agent Celluloid Nightmares pre-sold these territories at the American Film Market, and expects to make further announcements soon. Produced by Lizzette Atkins, X stars Viva Bianca and Hanna Mangan-Lawrence as a high class escort and a teenage runaway respectively, who are thrown together on a job that goes horribly wrong. They find themselves on an out-of-control roller-coaster ride through the seedy clubs, strip joints and back alleys of the red-light district. If they can get through the night, they might just have a chance at a fresh start. The November 2010 issue of Encore includes a set visit for this film, and interviews with Hewitt and Atkins. X was shot in Sydney, with finance from Screen Australia, Film Victoria and private investment, and will be released next year. Source

Expert British hostage negotiator Dominic King (Trevor Eve) is called upon when a businesswoman (Emma Fielding) from the UK is kidnapped in South Africa by a sinister figure named Willard (John Hannah). When the release of the woman goes wrong and Willard strikes again in Britain, King realizes this was never a straightforward case of kidnapping for ransom, and that the man's motives run much deeper than ever imagined. King, along with his superior, Angela (Helen Baxendale), and assistant, Carrie (Amara Karan), must now work against the clock to bring Willard's latest victims home alive.

Movie - Woodland Cross
A bloodstained abandoned car belonging to Matthew Thomas has been found in an open field, his wife Jessica, the prime suspect of his murder and his mistress, however she has a perfect alibi. Two misfit police detectives, Carter and Hayes are assigned the investigation and soon reveal other likely suspects, although the evidence is pointing towards a murder, no bodies are found and each suspect has a motive, making the detectives job more difficult than they can deal with, as their own personal life is rope tided into the investigation and becomes too foggy to make conscience of the evidence, being blinded by the blood found in the car, allowing surrounding elements take control of the investigation and their lives.
