TOM HIDDLESTON MOVES TO KING KONG'S 'SKULL ISLAND' LEAVING 'BEN HUR' TO JACK HUSTON! JOHN STAMOS GETS SITCOMS AT FOX & ABC. CBS'S BUYS 'LETTERS TO MY DAUGHTER'S FUTURE THERAPIST' SITCOM. 'INTO THE WOODS' POSTER WITH MERYL STREEP

TOM HIDDLESTON GOES TO
KING KONG'S 'SKULL ISLAND' LEAVES 'BEN HUR' TO JACK HUSTON
Both good and bad news, people, when it comes to our deeply beloved Tom Hiddleston. First of all, it seems that he won't be the new BEN HUR as we hoped, since, according to 'Deadline', director Timur Bekmbambetov has given the role to BOARDWALK EMPIRE's Jack Huston. He will star next to already announced Morgan Freeman, who will appear in the role of the man who teaches the title character to become a champion chariot racer. But Tom Hiddleston will take the lead in November 2016's SKULL ISLAND a jungle adventure of huge proportions which will explore the origins of famous King Kong over at the island of giant reptiles and dinosaurs. Jordan Vogt Roberts (KINGS OF SUMMER) is directing. On the other hand, I've announced before that you will watch Jack Huston in Nicholas Sparks adaptation THE LONGEST RIDE and in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES.  Rumours say that he originally tried out for the role of Messala in BEN HUR, but got the lead instead.

NEW TV COMEDIES
JOHN STAMOS SCORES TWO SITCOMS AT FOX & ABC
In TV news today, Fox has won a bidding war for new untitled sitcom to be produced by Dan Fogelman and starring John Stamos as a charismatic longtime bachelor whose life is upended when he discovers he’s a father — and a grandfather. It is interesting that Stamos will have two comedies on TV, since he is also leading ABC's midseason sitcom MEMBERS ONLY which, set at an exclusive Connecticut country club, follows the club’s leisure class members and the working class employees that make the place tick!
LETTERS TO MY DAUGHTER'S FUTURE THERAPIST
At the same time CBS has bought Jon Turteltaub's sitcom LETTERS TO MY DAUGHTER'S FUTURE THERAPIST, a multi generational family comedy in which the voice over reads the mother’s letters to her daughter’s future therapist, explaining her actions for when her daughter inevitably blames her for everything.

MERYL STREEP IS THE WITCH
IN 1ST 'INTO THE WOODS' POSTER
If you follow us at Facebook and Twitter you've already seen the first poster for INTO THE WOODS musical showing Meryl Streep as the wicked witch. Opening in cinemas this Christmas the film will see James Corden and Emily Blunt playing a baker and his wife who, in order to break the witches curse, venture INTO THE WOODS where they will meet all kinds of fairy tale characters from Cinderella and her prince (Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine) to Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood  and the Big Bad Wolf (Johnny Depp).
