EMILY BROWNING JOINS KIT HARINGTON IN "POMPEII" EPIC? LAURA RAMSEY TO LEAD NBC SF SHOW "THE SIXTH GUN"! JAMIE CHUNG, SIENNA GUILORY, JAMES MCLAUGHLIN IN J.J. ABRAM'S SF SHOW "BELIEVE"

A couple of times last year, your trusted HOLLYWOOD SPY has informed you that Paul W. Anderson is preparing an epic film which will follow the infamous natural disaster at POMPEII. Now we
have new rumours on the possible casting: delightful Emily Browning, whom we've last seen in SUCKER PUNCH and SLEEPING BEAUTY, could possibly take the lead female role joining GAME OF THRONES Kit Harington who is taking the lead male role. The script, which was rewritten by DOWNTON ABBEY's Julian Fellowes (let us hope he didn't turn it into a yawnfest), is set in the days leading up to the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius and follows the love of a slave and the daughter of the slave's master amid the eruption in A.D. 79 and destruction of Pompeii. Emily will star this June in pre WW1 set movie SUMMER IN FEBRUARY with Dominic Cooper and DOWNTON ABBEY's Dan Stevens in a true tale of love, liberty and scandal amongst the Edwardian artists' colony in Cornwall!

  THE SIXTH GUN SF SHOW 
And in television casting news today, NBC has found their actress for the lead role in new science fiction epic show THE SIXTH GUN which will get its pilot this year. According to "Deadline", stunning beauty Laura Ramsey, whom we've watched in THE RUINS, will portray the main protagonist in the television adaptation of the science fiction western comic book. Based on the Oni Press comic by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt, THE SIXTH GUN tells the story of six pistols of otherwordly power, and charts the chaos that occurs when an innocent girl comes into possession of the last, most powerful weapon. Two other additions to the cast are W Earl Brown who will appear in the show as foul-mouthed undead Confederate General Oliander Hume, with hunky Graham McTavish (from THE HOBBIT) playing his lieutenant while Aldis Hodge is set to play private detective Mr Mercer.

Abrams and directed by HARRY PLOPPER's Alfonso Cuaron,  the story of the new drama revolves around Bo (Johhny Sequoyah), a young girl in possession of great powers,  which will come into their own in seven years, and the man who is sprung from prison (Jake McLaughlin) to protect her from those trying to hunt her down. Jamie Chung, Mulan in ONCE UPON A TIME, will play Channing, a strong, practical and smart woman who works for Winter (Delroy Lindo) and assists Tate (McLaughlin) when he escapes from prison. Meanwhile, Sienna Guillory will play Moore, a cool hit-woman who has issues with her own mother.
