This post's title sounds dirty when I say it? Anyway Olivia Colman, who seems to be having a hell of a good time these days -- see above photo of her with her arm around Nicholas Hoult in a tuxedo -- and deservedly so, has got a new gig! She's going to star in an HBO series -- all Variety says is "series" they don't say "limited" or not -- called Landscapers that's being developed by no less than Citizen Ruth and Election filmmaker Alexander Payne. (Note how I ignored everything Payne has done since Election... I'm trying to be positive right now.) Landscapers will tell the true story of a "mild mannered couple" of married Brits who murder her parents and bury them in their backyard. The husband hasn't been cast yet. If I was shepherding this project -- and clearly I am not -- this sounds like a killer Ben Wheatley project to me, a la the wonderful Sightseers, but we'll see what Payne manages. Anyway Olivia playing a psycho has long been a dream of mine, and if a Bond Villain or the below can't happen we'll take this for sure.
