The original plan was to write review of When Harry Became Tree, however there are so many interesting news about the one actor I love the most and I decided to postpone the review and shared news of this talented and gorgeous Irishman.
Many movie bloggers have Movie News, like my friend Terrence with his Movie News Monday, since I am not a pure movie blogger, I don’t have Movie News and will never have one as I am too lazy to update news of movies unrelated to people I like…but from now I will have Murphy News section 😉
I used to share Cillian’s news under different titles, such as: Cillian’s next Project; Cillian’s Update; and More awards and Movies. They are such a random title….so Today I officially named all news about this actor with brilliant talent as Murphy News.
Of course Murphy news is part of my Monthly Murphy 😉
Now….let’s begin the news!
My favorite site, The Cillian Site, shared a video of Misterman. I am going to remind you a bit of Misterman, it was a one man play staring the one and only Cillian Murphy. He won two theatrical awards for his amazing performance.
Unfortunately I am not rich enough to go to Ireland nor London to see his performance…but I keep all the track of this play and made a special post back in August 2011, Misterman- a sold out performance by Cillian Murphy.
I am so happy to see this video because at least I have a glimpse to his physical demanding play (I am still wishing for a DVD of that performance)
See what a tiring play it was!
As I have written back in December 2012, Cillian is going to play in a 6 episode BBC series called Peaky Blinders. He is going to play a ruthless gang leader.
The filming of the series HAS COMPLETED...yaaaiii. However, I haven’t found news of when it will be shown.
Can you imagine how freakishly happy I would be when the series finally start? For 6 consecutive weeks, I will see him being a heartless man….and trust me, he is so believable as a psycho.
You might wonder, how would I see it if it’s on BBC? well, I am grateful for Torrentz 🙂 I will download them all and then wait patiently for the DVD to show up and will definitely buy it then. (my plan is to collect ALL his DVD)
The series will be played at BBC Two. here are the cast: Cillian Murphy as gang leader Tommy Shelby; Sam Neill as C.I. Campbell; Helen McCrory as Aunt Polly Gray, the Shelby family matriarch; Annabelle Wallis as Grace Burgess; Iddo Goldberg as Freddie Thorne; Paul Anderson as Arthur Shelby; Sophie Rundle as Ada Shelby; Andy Nyman as Winston Churchill; Tommy Flanagan as Arthur Senior; Charlie Creed-Miles; Benjamin Zephaniah; James Bryhan; David Dawson as Roberts.
Back in January, I shared a bit about Cillian’s next movie with one of my favorite actresses, Jennifer Connelly.
Here’s the synopsis: (from indiwire)
Jennifer Connelly will star as the mother of a girl “who is terminally ill. A dramatic event separates the mother from her sick daughter and falcon-keeper son, and 20 years later, the son is persuaded by a journalist to embark on a search for his now-famous mother.” The supremely underrated Cillian Murphy will play the grown-up version of her son with “Inglourious Basterds” and “Beginners” actress Melanie Laurent landing the journalist role.
According to CTV News, the movie is currently being filmed at Beaconia. Hoping to see another brilliant acting by Cillian. Haven’t seen him awed me so much like when he played Peacock.
This last news is the best news of all!!! It’s a dream cast for me!! I have already shared that there are 6 actors and 1 actress I always want to see no matter how crappy their movies are. One of them is OF COURSE Cillian Murphy….and here in Transcendence, Cillian will play alongside Paul Bettany … gyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. (It’s quite funny how Cillian happens to play with Jen then Paul…the Bettany 😉 )
Cillian and Paul…excuse me if I can’t hide my excitement. Apart from those two favorite actors of mine, the whole cast is also stunning. Although I don’t love them as much as Cillian and Paul, but they are also my favorite actors, Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman.
The cast is already my dream cast, I hope the story will match the actors…but considering that Wally Pfister is behind this, I am quite sure it’ll be something good.
From Total Film:
Transcendence will follow Depp’s artificial intelligence scientist whose consciousness is uploaded into a computer of his design before he is killed by a group of anti-technology terrorists. Hall will play the wife and fellow researcher charged with continuing his work
Two leading computer scientists work toward their goal of Technological Singularity, as a radical anti-technology organization fights to prevent them from creating a world where computers can transcend the abilities of the human brain
So far…the story sounds intriguing 😉
I will continue updating this movie on my Murphy News. The movie is set to be released in 24 April 2014.

The last bit of news is quite exciting. I’m a huge Depp fan myself and it sounds like an interesting project. I’ll keep an eye out for the BBC show. I’m starting to like that British shows are only 6 episodes per season. So much easier to keep up with.
Exciting, isn’t it 😉
I love the cast.
That’s one of many things why I like British series more and more, just like why I like Japanese drama series, there aren’t many episodes. I will let everyone knows when Peaky Blinders finally on air because I am planning to do a weekly review on it 😉
huwaa~ misterman clip!! o(^O^)o
lho, Peaky Blinders itu upcoming project ya? kukira itu film lamanya dia!? kkk ;p
iya tuh, dr kmrn yg lagi dihebohin Cry/Fly sama Transcendence. tapi Transcendence yg paling dinanti, hehe. kpn lagi liat om Cilli main sama om John!! aaakkk~ surga~ #lho
makasih mbak udah di tag! *hugs :))
Gyahaha belum itu say…siap2 aja tiap minggu liat dia jd org jahat selama 6 minggu 😉
Si Wally bisa aja deh milih castnya…hoho keren2 semua. Pasti di tag karena cuma sedikit fans Cillian yg sy kenal 😉
Glad to know your dream cast is getting assembled in real life 🙂
Thank you Julian 🙂
It would be perfect if Cumberbatch is also in it 😉
“It would be perfect if Cumberbatch is also in it” I was just about to say that! I’d love to see THAT duo on screen 😀
Hahaha…if Benny is in Transcendence…it would be a heaven cast for me 😉
A lot of really exciting news. I’d like to watch all three of the ast you mention.
Hope you get to see them all 🙂
Out of this list, I’m most intrigued by Transcendence, though Nolan & co. seems to like casting the same people over and over, it’s like a high school clique or something. Glad to see at least Johnny Depp is “new” in the group as he hasn’t worked w/ Nolan before. Nice to see him w/ Jennifer Connelly, sounds like an interesting duo.
I think when a Director or Producer is happy with certain actor, they will keep on using him. And from what I have read, Cillian is one of the nicest actors a live and everyone loves working with him 😉
I think Bettany hasn’t worked with Nolan as well. O know that everyone is excited with Cillian and Depp, but I am more excited with Cillian and Paul. I imagine they will be having family dinner soon because Cillian works with the wife and then the husband 😉
Cillian won’t be in the same scene with Jennifer, I think, because he plays as her son.
He sure did a lot of running around on the clip. Tiring indeed.
Running, being poured with water, jumping and he had to do that every night…alone.
I admired his love for the art.
