Gwendoline Christie will play a female version of Lucifer, Queen of Hell. Charles Dance will appear as Roderick Burgess who is a charlatan, blackmailer and magician. Netflix’s official synopsis for The Sandman reads: “A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven, ‘The Sandman’ follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.”

Gaiman is executive producing the adaptation alongside David S. Goyer and Allan Heinberg. To give a tough competition to Netflix, HBO has already announced their epic programming line-up for 2021-22. It will be a delight for fantasy lovers all over the world when these fantastic shows are out.

New audition for House of The Dragon hints at legendary Kingsguard twins

Game of Thrones ended nearly two years ago. The widely successful series left a blank on its wrapping up, reducing the viewership at HBO by nearly 50%. The television network is trying to win its audience back with a full-on effort with Game of Thrones prequels. First in the line is House of The Dragon, which is the only show confirmed so far. HBO has managed to create a huge hype for the upcoming series, by launching a teaser in their epic programming line-up for 2021-22. The big players have already been cast. Recently, an audition tape was leaked that hinted at the casting of the legendary Kingsguard twins – the Cargyll brothers.

Video was publicly shared by brothers John and Michael Cooke auditioning for the roles of ‘Edgar‘ and ‘Armand‘ in a project titled ‘Red Gun‘. It’s been known for a while that ‘Red Gun’ is the code-name used by HBO for House of the Dragon. The video was later removed, as reported by Redanian Intelligence.

The video dialogue made it pretty clear that it was indeed shot for a Westeros setting. It’s an established industry practice to use codenames with the same initials as the characters they are for. Conveniently, there are the Kingsguard twin-brothers Arryk and Erryk Cargyll that fit the formula. Both played a prominent role during the Dance of the Dragons, fighting on opposite sides of the war. Based on this and the dialogue, we can assume that ‘Armand’ is Arryk and ‘Edgar’ is Erryk.

The Red Wedding year 2020 was full of hardships for people all around the world. The majority of the population lost their jobs, their homes and their lives. The scenario was similar to what happened during the two World Wars. It took a lot of time for the world to get back on its feet. The BBC has announced the cast for SAS: Rogue Heroes, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight’s dramatized account of how Britain’s Special Forces unit was formed in the darkest days of World War Two.

Dominic West (The Wire) will play Lieutenant Colonel Wrangel Clarke. The series is produced by Banijay-owned Kudos.

SAS: Rogue Heroes centres on Stirling, an eccentric young officer, hospitalized after a training exercise went wrong. Convinced that traditional commando units don’t work, he creates a radical plan that flies in the face of all accepted rules of modern warfare. He fights for permission to recruit the toughest, boldest, and brightest soldiers for a small undercover unit that will create mayhem behind enemy lines.

Alfie Allen is currently starring in BBC’s Harlots. Are you excited about the upcoming series? Talk to us in the comments below!
