Now here is a power couple I can get behind. (Or they could get behind me, I am not picky.) Apple has just green-lit a French-language thriller series called Liaison that will star Vincent Cassel and Eva Green; this comes just a few months after it was announced that Cassel & Green will also be co-starring in a pair of Three Musketeers films, about which I was very very very enthusiastic at the time. And remain so. And that enthusiasm carries over to today's announcement -- I wouldn't be sad if literally everything starred Vincent Cassel and Eva Green. Who could be sad about Vincent Cassel and Eva Green? They are life! Here is how Liaison is described:
"Liaison is a high-stakes, contemporary thriller exploring how the mistakes of our past have the potential to destroy our future. The series combines action with an unpredictable, multi-layered plot in which espionage and political intrigue play out against a story of passionate and enduring love.”
The series is coming from some dude who worked on the show 24; it will co-star, also enticingly, the ever great Peter Mullan. (We fucking love Peter Mullan here at MNPP.) So we'll keep our eyes peeled for this, and duly welcome the arrival of our new Cassel / Green entertainment empire. And here as a treat a new-to-my-eyes photo-shoot of Vincent, after the jump...
