Instead of going to bed I’ll just sit here and draw random stuff~ I’m still too excited about all the free time!
EXCLUSIVE: While he’s currently on screens everywhere as the face of intergalactic evil in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, Lee Pace has lined up sci-fi thriller Prisoner Of War as his next leading role. It’s a departure from his snarlingGuardians villain Ronan the Accuser: Pace joins Skyfall‘s Bérénice Marlohe in the story of an American soldier and a French foreign aid worker who team up in Africa amid humankind’s last stand against a cataclysmic alien invasion.
Pace replaces Chronicle‘s Alex Russell in Prisoner, his first new project following a recent tear of huge blockbuster franchises. He next hits the big screen this December reprising the role of Elf King Thranduil in Peter Jackson’s series-concluding The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies after appearing in the two previous Hobbitflicks. Before that Pace popped up as a vampire in Summit’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. He also stars in AMC’s 1980s drama Halt and Catch Fire, which wrapped its freshman season Sunday, and has filmed a supporting role in Stephen Frears’ upcoming Lance Armstrong biopic for StudioCanal and Working Title.
Music video and TV vet Joe Miale is directing Prisoner Of War, which is produced by Automatik’s Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, 42’s Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh, and Tea Shop & Film Company’s James Harris. Zev Foreman and Nicolas Chartier also are producing for Voltage. Mark Lane is co-producing for Tea Shop & Film. Filming is set to start in September on location in South Africa. Pace is repped by CAA and Peikoff Mahan.

‘I’ve heard it called many things, but – “other grounds”?’
James Wilby as Siegfried Sassoon in Regeneration (Gillies Mackinnon, 1997), 1/2
I wanted to do some WW1 centenary posts relevant to this blog’s interests…
Regeneration – released in the US as Behind the Lines – adapted from Pat Barker’s Regeneration trilogy of novels, is a brilliant film that deserves to be more widely known. It also ‘happens’ to star James in one of his finest performances as Siegfried Sassoon – war poet, Western Front hero, and conscientious objector.
Regeneration also starred Jonathan Pryce as Captain William Rivers, the psychiatrist charged with treating shell-shocked officers at Craiglockhart War Hospital near Edinburgh (the film’s main setting), Stuart Bunce as Wilfred Owen, Dougray Scott as Robert Graves, and Jonny Lee Miller as Billy Prior. And, conveniently, it’s on YouTube in 9 parts.
This post and the one that follows are partly for tranquil23 and for ignite0me – because I haven’t had time to make the James gifs yet, and because ignite0me needs all the James this summer. *Hugs* And everyone else too!
