DREADCENTRAL.COM – First off if you think that the innocently written headline is at all dirty, then you are my kind of people and I love you all! Secondly, Deadline is reporting that the new film featuring “The Walking Dead’s” Lauren Cohan entitled The Boy has gotten itself a release date. Look for The Boy in theatres on January 22, 2016 via STX Entertainment and on home video thereafter via Universal.
Cohan stars in the horror thriller from Lakeshore Entertainment and Vertigo Entertainment. William Brent Bell (The Devil Inside) is directing the project, which is aiming for a January 22, 2016, release. Jim Norton (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), Diana Hardcastle (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Ben Robson (“Vikings”), Rupert Evans (Hellboy) and James Russell (“Blue Bloods”) also star.
The script, written by Stacey Menear, centers on a nanny (Cohan) who is tasked with overseeing a lifelike doll by a bizarre couple who treat it as a real child. The couple use the doll as way to cope with the death of their young son, but the nanny becomes increasingly convinced that it is alive.
Producing are Lakeshore’s Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg, Vertigo’s Roy Lee and Adam Stone, along with Jim Wedaa.
Greta (Cohan), a young American woman looking to escape a troubled past, takes a job in a small England village as a nanny for a wealthy couple’s 8-year-old son while they take a long vacation. She arrives at the remote manor to discover that things are not quite right. The surprisingly elderly Mr. & Mrs. Heelshire have a list of strict rules for her to follow in caring for their son Brahms, and they mysteriously warn Greta that not following them precisely could result in something terrible. But, the most disturbing realization of all is that Brahms is not an actual 8-year-old boy….he’s a life-sized porcelain doll, whom the doting parents care for and deeply love, just like a real boy.
“If you love him,” Greta is sternly instructed, “he will love you back.”
Isolated and alone, Greta notices that every time she breaks a rule, something strange happens in the house, and the doll reappears in different places and positions than where she put him. Compelled to uncover the mystery behind Brahms, Greta enlists the help of the local grocery delivery man, the only human being she sees for weeks, who shares horrifying details about the Heelshire family’s disturbing past, leading Greta to realize that she wasn’t just hired – she was chosen.
HOLLYWOODREPORTER.COM – Following its deadly third season, History’s Vikings is adding three new series regulars to its cast.
Finnish actors Peter Franzen (The Gunman) and Jasper Paakkonen (Frozen Land, Secret Lives) as well as Dianne Doan (Once Upon a Time) have joined the drama series created by Michael Hirst, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Franzen will play King Harald Finehair, a Scandinavian warrior and potential threat to Ragnar (Travis Fimmel). Paakkonen is set to play Halfdan the Black, Finehair’s younger brother. Doan will portray Yidu, a new and unique Chinese character who will have a big role in season four.
Season four, already underway in Ireland, will feature a time jump of a “couple of years,” Hirst told THR after the season three finale.
The castings come as Vikings said farewell to Jessalyn Gilsig’s Siggy and George Blagden’s Athelstan in its third season.
Franzen is repped by Paradigm and Untitled Entertainment, as well as Actors in Scandinavia; Paakkonen is with ICM Partners, Lisa Richards and Anonymous Content; and Doan is with Principals Talent Management.
Vikings returns in 2016.

Hello and welcome to The Ben Robson Network, an unofficial fan site dedicated to British actor Ben Robson!
As a big fan of Ben, I’ve been following his career since I saw him in Dracula: The Dark Prince and of course, season 3 of History’s Vikings. I decided to create a site especially for him as a new up and comer. So here it is finally. I do hope you like it and be assured there’s much more to come!
The photo gallery is still a work in progress but it is open. I will still be making updates to it as much as I can. In the meantime, have a look around.
I’m not new to the fan site world, as I enjoy making sites on my favorite people. You can check out my other sites at my personal site which is located at the sidebar.
