Singh signs for Killing On Carnival Row...
Tarsem Singh is set to direct Killing On Carnival Row, a film that failed to make it with Guillermo Del Toro and Neil Jordan at the helm but looks set to start filming next year with Singh taking the directorial role according to Deadline. The script by Travis Beacham tells the story of a future city called the Burgue which looks and feels a lot like 18th Century London, is filled with all manner of creatures including us humans, and has a serial killer on the loose. Singh's style would be perfect for the film.


Sophie Scholl director tackles Galapagos killings...
Marc Rothemund the director of the excellent Sophie Scholl: The Final Days has signed to direct the true-story adaptation of a mysterious series of killings on the Galapagos islands in the 1930's according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film is called Galapagos and is based on Margarete Wittmer's autobiography Floreana: A Woman's Pilgrimage to the Galapagos which tells of her experiences of being the only survivor of a group of Germans who emigrated there, the others either vanishing or being killed. Petra Luschow is set to write the screenplay which sounds as though it will be fascinating.


Frears directing dancing detective from Calcutta...
Ridley and Tony Scott's Scott Free production company are working with director Stephen Frears and writer D.V. DeVincentis on the adaptation of The Bengali Detective, a documentary directed by Philip Cox which followed a private eye from Calcutta called Rajesh Ji who was also trying to become a dancer on Indian television. The story from Variety sounds rather bizarre, and at the same trying rather strangely intriguing.


Butler returning to Africa again...
Gerard Butler looks set to return to another fact based story set in Africa about Simon Mann, a former British army officer who put together a group of mercenaries to lead a coup against the President of Equatorial Guinea. According to Mann he was backed in the attempt by Mark Thatcher, the son of British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. The coup failed when Mann and his team were in Zimbabwe picking up weapons, and he was sentenced to five years in terrible prison conditions there before being sent to Equatorial Guinea for a further thirty-four year prison sentence, thankfully being spared that sentence by receiving a Presidential pardon. The story from Deadline tells us that Ridley Scott is looking to produce and perhaps direct, boy is he busy, and Gerard Butler is looking to take the lead, good man.


20,000 Leagues Under the Sea gains Seven team...
Wait up, the remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea isn't dead, it's moving forward according to Deadline who tell us that Andrew Kevin Walker is now set to work on a rewrite of the script for director David Fincher. It's not dead, and the idea of the team behind Seven working on this suggests we're not in for a Disney adventure.


Absolutely Fabulous the movie...
Jennifer Saunders is writing an Absolutely Fabulous film which will see her reunite with co-star Joanna Lumley. Ab Fab: The Movie is, according to Deadline, set to begin with the pair waking up on a yacht drifting out at sea with no mobile reception and no one else on board. This is absolutely fabulous news and Saunders is a comic genius on paper and in front of the camera.
