HISTORICAL FRIDAY: TNT SETS 'WILL' YOUNG SHAKESPEARE SERIES WITH LAURIE DAVIDSON FOR JULY! MEDIAEVAL ADVENTURE 'PILGRIMAGE' TRAILER WITH TOM HOLLAND, STANLEY WEBER, RICHARD ARMITAGE

YOUNG 'WILL' SHAKESPEARE
SERIES STARTS THIS JULY!
Period set projects today to end the week! TNT has finally revealed the airing date for their fun new series WILL which mixes historical setting and story with modern music. The ten episode series, starring Laurie Davidson as young William Shakespeare, will start airing July 10! Shekhar Kapur directs with the cast also including Olivia DeJonge, Ewen Bremner, Colm Meaney, Mattias Inwood, William Houston, Lukas Rolfe, Max Bennett!
WILL tells the wild story of young William Shakespeare's arrival onto the punk rock theatre scene in 16th century London, the seductive, violent world where his raw talent faced rioting audiences, religious fanatics and raucous side shows. It's a contemporary version of Shakespeare's life, played to a modern soundtrack that exposes all his recklessness, lustful temptations and brilliance.



'PILGRIMAGE' TRAILER
WITH TOM HOLLAND, STANLEY WEBER, AND RICHARD ARMITAGE
Speaking of mediaeval shenanigans, first trailer has finally been released for historical adventure movie PILGRIMAGE which plays this weekend at Tribeca Film Festival starring Tom Holland, Jon Bernthal, Richard Armitage and Stanley Weber!
 ON A PERILOUS JOURNEY
Coming to theatres in August,  it is set on the Irish coast in A.D. 1209, where a group of monks and knights set out on a quest to bring a legendary artefact with biblical origins to Rome, where they believe it will be safe from those who seek to wield its power. Their journey quickly turns into a perilous one, with all manner of military men and scoundrels attempting to snatch their cargo.

  1. That's definitely going to be an interesting take on Shakespeare. I'm curious to see how it is.

    1. I expect the music to be uber crazy since they will use modern punk and rock songs as the soundtrack.

  2. How do you feel about Sherlock, Dezzy? With the modern take on technology? I love it. And the actors. Might give Will a try if it hits Netflix. Possible.

  3. "Pilgrimage" looks intriguing, if only because I was wondering what Richard Armitage was up to after The Hobbit. Looks like more violence and killing in the name of christianity.
