Netflix are making an adaption of the Matilda Musical, with Emma Thompson as Trunchbull, what a bizarre piece of casting. 

And people were questioning the Furiosa casting?!

Yep, though great acting with the wrong look would always be my preference than the other way round. Surely both are possible?

Yes, watched in in the summer over here in Sweden, and I recall reviewing it in a past iteration of the Watched/Watching thread. Surprised that it didn't come out in the US at the same time, and indeed was held back for so many months. Wonder what the story is behind that.

Starlight Media Developing TV Adaptation Of Rebecca F. Kuang’s Fantasy Books Including ‘The Poppy War’

‘District 9’ Director Neill Blomkamp Has Made An Under-The-Radar Supernatural Horror Movie During The Pandemic

I've read the Kuang books and im not see if I can see an adaptation succeeding. The main character isn't likable at all along with all the fantasy elements that make something like this difficult.

Wasn't she suppose to be on the leads in a Mandalorian spin-off, Rangers of the New Republic or something like that?

It's not entirely clear, as not a lot of detail was ever released about what viewers could expect, from a casting perspective, at least.

The Last of Us HBO adaptation casts GOT's Bella Ramsey (Lyanna Mormont) as Ellie.   Mahershala Ali was considering/considered for the role of Joel but that didn't work out.  Safe to say their looking for a big name for it.

Well, that was fast:  It's Pedro Pascal!  I'm already telling jokes about Lyanna Mormont being cast as Baby Yoda.  I don't know the game, but same Lone Wolf & Cub dynamic, right?

Actually... yea, very similar dynamic though Ellie talks.

I can't imagine what's appealing for Glover an ongoing series about this story.  But I never saw that movie anyway.

I got briefly and mildly excited when I wrongly thought it was a Scarecrow and Mrs. King reboot.

In the last years of Victoria’s reign, London is beset by the “Touched”: people — mostly women — who suddenly manifest abnormal abilities, some charming, some very disturbing. Among them are Amalia True (Laura Donnelly), a mysterious, quick-fisted widow, and Penance Adair (Ann Skelly), a brilliant young inventor. They are the champions of this new underclass, making a home for the Touched, while fighting the forces of… well, pretty much all the forces — to make room for those whom history as we know it has no place
