In the world of movies, action movies are one of a kind, having a separate fan base all over the world. What makes these movies so special is the amazing action scenes involving our favourite heroes. Action movies have come a long way since the first action movie ‘The Great Train Robbery’ in 1903. These films are a spicy mix of drama, comedy, thrill and of course, a lot of action. Fantastical show Game of Thrones had some of the most spine-chilling action scenes. Martin Owens’ latest movie Twist is a modern, action-filled take on the classic tale of Oliver Twist, featuring Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey.

Besides the remarkable acting by Dominic Di Tommaso, the best thing that this movie offers is the action scenes played by Lena Headey. Lena Headey is famous for her character Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones, though she did not have any action scenes on the show. Fans of the acclaimed TV series can now see Headey in mind-blowing action sequences in Twist.

Far from the classic Charles Dickens tale we’ve seen and read countless times before, Twist has been adapted into a heist movie instead. Martin Owen is at the helm of the Sky Originals project. Rather than an orphaned boy begging for another bowl of gruel, Rafferty’s Oliver is a streetwise artist whose encounter with Dodge (Rita Ora) sees him get involved in an underground world of crime.

Lena will also be starring in an indie drama Gigi Gaston’s Gypsy Moon. Do watch the movie Twist and tell us how you feel about it in the comments below!

Game of Thrones actor Ron Donachie to star in Channel 4’s new prison drama ‘Screw'

Game of Thrones boasted a host of amazing and talented artists in its cast and crew. Even the supporting characters were highly remarkable, some became fan-favourites, like Syrio Forel. Another Game of Thrones actor Ron Donachie is set to star in Channel 4’s new drama, Screw. Donachie played Ser Rodrik Cassel, Master-at-Arms at Winterfell on Game of Thrones.

Killing Eve writer Rob Williams’ own experiences working in prisons acts as inspiration for the show. The six-part series is set to explore life behind bars as you’ve never seen it before. It promises to deliver an “uncensored, shocking and often darkly funny” look at what it’s like to be a female warden in an all-male jail.

His Dark Materials’ Nina Sosanya will take on the central role of Leigh, an officer. She worries about how her secrets could jeopardise her job as a guard if they were to get out, while Donachie plays Don, a fellow ‘screw‘.

Derry Girls’ Jamie-Lee O’Donnell (who plays a young trainee officer named Rose), Detectorists’ Laura Checkley, Line of Duty’s Faraz Ayub and I May Destroy You’s Stephen Wright also play notable roles.

It would be fun to watch Ron Donachie once again on the little screen. Are you excited about the prison drama? Talk to us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones actor Gary Wales turns his attention to domestic violence with short film

Game of Thrones had plenty of social messages hidden in plain sight. Though it may not be too obvious, it was a representation of our own society. According to recent research, the fantasy show is very similar to real-world human interactions. That’s the reason why the show was such a big hit, people could relate to the characters. The series was a big platform to showcase the Domestic Abuse women face behind closed doors. RAGE, a short film, will attempt to show what goes on behind closed doors and help real-life victims get the support they need. It is being made by actor Gary Wales, who featured in an episode of Game of Thrones, and filmmaker David Penman.

Rage features a ‘seemingly normal family man’ on a date night with his wife. Things turn nasty when he takes a mix of drugs and booze.

Gary, 25, said: “The whole purpose of this movie is to show people what drugs and alcohol can do, especially behind closed doors, and how it can affect families around the world.

“Every single day there are families going through this situation and no one really knows what happens behind closed doors. You could just be chilling one night and then hear an argument from your neighbours, but you don’t really know what has happened. Anything can happen. Then suddenly the emergency services show up and people wonder.”

“This is a short drama which is going to reflect on what happens behind that closed door,” Gary added. “It’s not really for entertainment purposes… it’s hard to put into words. We are also going to give people resources they can use to learn more about this and to help.”

Game of Thrones star Lena Headey to adapt Scary Stories For Young Foxes

Children love a scary story if told the right way. Ever since we were kids, we loved to share our own scary tales with our friends and laughed at their spooked out faces. Lena Headey is adapting a spooky animated adaptation of Christian McKay Heidicker’s Scary Stories for Young Foxes. The Game of Thrones star will co-produce it with Boat Rocker Studios, as reported by Deadline.

Lena will voice a character in the animated miniseries adaptation of the award-winning kids’ horror novel. Her production company Peephole Productions will produce with the company’s Kids & Family division.

Centred on two young foxes who are separated from their litters. Scary Stories for Young Foxes will see Mia and Uly attempting to survive a spooky world full of monsters as they make their way home. Their journey is told in eight separate parts. With a single theme running through all of them: the impact of scary stories.

“During our first meeting at Boat Rocker I was asked what I was interested in. We started talking about horror for kids. How there is a space for this, and not to shy away from putting stuff out there that’s dark and smart,” said Headey. “Kids aren’t daft — they know when we’re holding back the scary bits. I’m so happy to be part of a great team. To bring Christian’s book to life in a way that feels authentic.”

Lena has also joined the TV adaptation of Hugh Howey’s sci-fi novel Beacon 23. Are you excited about the spooky animation? Tell us in the comments below!
