   Spall wins "Best Actor" award0 Comments

The 27th European Film Awards in Riga, Latvia has seen Timothy Spall take home the "Best Actor" award.

Spall received the award for his role in Mr. Turner.

Accio Quote:
I love the roving European Film Awards. They're held in a different city every other year, often touching base in Berlin in between. This time around, the Latvian capital of Riga was the scene, where "Ida" took top honors for European film of the year. No surprise, really, as the film led the way with nominations and won four other prizes besides, including Best Director. Timothy Spall ("Mr. Turner") and Marion Cotillard ("Two Days, One Night") took top acting honors.

   "The Cuckoo's Calling" to be turned into a TV series0 Comments

J K Rowling has announced on Twitter that her crime novel under the name of Robert Galbraith will be adapted by the BBC.

The Cuckoo's Calling was Rowling's first crime novel as Galbraith and will be adapted for BBC One.

The BBC reports:

Accio Quote:
Today, it was exclusively announced that Robert Galbraith’s Cormoran Strike novels will be adapted for a major new television series for BBC One, produced by Brontë Film and TV.

The Cuckoo’s Calling (published by Little, Brown) is the first in the Cormoran Strike series and J.K. Rowling’s first crime novel written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. The Cuckoo’s Calling was published to critical acclaim in 2013 and went on to be a global bestseller, followed in 2014 by The Silkworm.

Rowling will collaborate on the project, with the number and length of episodes to be decided once the creative adaptation process has formally begun. This marks a continuation of the BBC’s relationship with Brontë Film and TV and J.K. Rowling. Brontë is also making J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy, a three-part serial which will be aired on BBC One in February 2015.

   Pottermore at Christmas0 Comments

Following rumours and speculations made in the press about what J K Rowling is going to release at Christmas, Pottermore has explained clearly:

Accio Quote:
Just to put everyone straight on the misleading media reports of ‘Twelve New Stories for Christmas’. As true Potter fans worked out straight away, our 12 days of festive surprises and accompanying rhyming riddles refer to new potions and Moments in addition to several new entries by J.K. Rowling that will be posted on between 12th and 23rd December. Sorry to disappoint fans, but there will not be a set of 12 new short stories, one for each day of Christmas. Even Pottermore wouldn't be that generous.
