Rumour: Winona joining Page 8 Sequel?

The website ParArmenian.Net is reporting that Winona, Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonhan Carter and Christopher Walken are joining the ‘Page 8’ sequels.

The first installment, Page Eight, aired in 2011 on BBC Two and PBS and starred Bill Nighy, Rachel Weisz, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon and Judy Davis. Nighy will reprise his role as British intelligence officer Johnny Worricker for parts two and three, respectively titled Turks & Caicos and Salting The Battlefield. Fiennes also returns for both. Turks & Caicos is adding Christopher Walken, Winona Ryder, Helena Bonham Carter, Ewen Bremner, James Naughton, Dylan Baker and Zach Grenier. Davis, who was nominated for a supporting actress Emmy for Page Eight, will return for Salting The Battlefield as will Bonham Carter and Bremner along with Saskia Reeves, Kate Burdette and Malcolm Sinclair.

Page Eight, which closed the Toronto Film Festival in 2011, saw Worricker uncover a plot to turn control of MI5 directly over to the prime minister after the head of the organization’s death. Part two will pick up after Worricker leaves his MI5 post and heads to Turks & Caicos where the CIA forces him to deal with a group of ambiguous Americans who are on the islands for a high-level conference. At the same time, an old girlfriend is being asked to betray her boss in London in order to establish an illicit connection between the prime minister and dark goings-on in the war on terror. Salting The Battlefield sees Worricker and the girlfriend on the run from MI5 until Worricker returns home to confront the prime minister in a duel of wits.

Both films are produced by Harry Potter‘s David Heyman and David Barron along with Celia Duval. Exec producers are Carnival’s Gareth Neame and Nigel Marchant and the BBC’s Christine Langan. A start date has yet to be confirmed.

“They were happy to have photos taken with locals. It was their bassist, Mark who took our photo for us.

Bravo Developing a “Heathers” TV Show

Because nothing is sacred, and also because Teen Clique shows do very well over on ABC Family, Bravo is working on a television reboots of the seminal 1988 girls being horrible to each other movie Heathers. The new version would center around Veronica’s teen daughter, who tangos with a new group of high school harpies known as … the Ashleys. With all due respect to the Ashleys of the world, that is not the most threatening name. Could we suggest “the Courtneys?” Also, could we suggest not ruining Heathers?

Well, Vulture tells everything. Why they keep doing this to us?

PS: If you did this gif, please let me know so I can credit you.
