STEVEN SPIELBERG & JAVIER BARDEM TO MAKE 'MONTEZUMA' EPIC ADVENTURE MOVIE! FIRST 'FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD' IMAGES WITH CAREY MULIGAN, MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS, TOM STURRIDGE, MICHAEL SHEEN

MONTEZUMA EPIC!
WITH STEVEN SPIELBERG AND JAVIER BARDEM?
Oh, you know how there's nothing that your HOLLYWOOD SPY lurvs more than a new epic: Deadline reports that Steven Spielberg is eying MONTEZUMA an epic tale of the kinship and ultimately the bloody collision between Montezuma and Cortez as the latter led the Spanish infiltration into Mexico. With Javier Bardem being eyed for the role of the Spanish explorer and invader Cortez, the movie would be based on the 50 years old script to be rewritten by Steve Zaillian who had worked with Spielberg on THE SCHINDLER'S LIST and who is currently producing Ridley Scott's Egyptian epic EXODUS. The original script was written by Dalton Trumbo half a century ago for Kirk Douglas and has been considered one of the greatest unmade scripts.
DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON
When Hernando Cortez came to Mexico in the early 16th century he was a guest at the court of the Aztec ruler, but he soon infected the Aztecs with lust for gold, with religion, with some European diseases which all later lead to battles and fights. After MONTEZUMA was killed, Cortez actually impregnated his daughter, the Aztec princess.

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD
THE FIRST IMAGES ARE HERE!
And speaking of period set movies, here are the first pictures from FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD movie adaptation of Thomas Hardy classic novel which will hit the big screens sometime this  year starring Carey Muligan, Juno Temple, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge, Matthias Schoenaerts and directed by Thomas Vinterberg. The story follows a headstrong young woman named Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Muligan), who realizes her life’s happiness depends very much on who she chooses to marry. Her suitors each come from different backgrounds. Gabrielle Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts) is a sweet-hearted sheep farmer who is drawn in by her independent spirit. Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge) is a sexy, dashing and impulsive Sergeant, who promises passion. William Boldwood (Michael Sheen) is a wealthy, but older gentleman, who could offer her luxury at least. 
DEZZY'S LITERATURE LESSON
Here's an encouraging info for you writers: although FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD was Hardy's fourth novel, it was actually his first literary success.
