Showtime's 'The Borgias' Will Come To An End After Third Season


Jeremy Irons Neil Jordan

Showtime's hit historical drama The Borgias will be brought to an end when the current third season finishes later this month. When the current season comes to an end on June 16, the Jeremy Irons-staring show will be wrapped up for good, with show creator Neil Jordan revealing that a story to tie up the series has been written.

According to Deadline, who broke the story, Jordan had previously planned on having a four-season run of the show, however he and Irons agreed during the filming of the final episode of the current season that things had been tied up nicely and that there was not real need to continue the series. Jordan told Deadline that after the filming of an important scene in the now final episode of the show, Irons turned to him and said; “this feels like the end of something, that the family has come to an end.”

Whilst working on a potential script for what would be the fourth and final season of the show, Jordan went on to explain that he was running out of ideas and finding it near-impossible to come up with an additional 10 episode for the papal drama. ”As a compromise, I proposed to finish the arc of all the characters with a two-hour movie,” Jordan went on to say, but although the idea was commissioned by Showtime and a script had been written by Jordan, it turned out that the overall cost of shooting a feature-length episode would be too much and thus the idea was scraped.

Byzantium Trailer


Clara and Eleanor are a mother and daughter, born two centuries ago as vampires and surviving only on the blood of mortal beings. They escape to an English seaside town and are taken into an abandoned guesthouse by the owner, Noel. While Clara takes on a job as a lady of the night who drains the blood from her clients, Eleanor has dreams of being a writer, chronicling her life as a vampire in pages that she usually scatters in the wind. It isn't long before they are discovered, both by the mortal people of the town and by The Brotherhood; an all-male vampire organisation that seek to find and kill Clara. Eleanor meets a boy called Frank, who she develops feelings for and spills the secrets of her world to, angering her mother who fears for their safety. As knowledge of their existence spreads further and further, they are forced to confront their past and the deadly secrets that come with it.

Mona Lisa Review


Excellent
Neil Jordan knows movies are a form of art. While much of his work carries a distinctive artistic style, his involving 1986 drama Mona Lisa even carries the title of the famous painting of a dark, serene, mysterious woman with a slight grin on her face -- the Mona Lisa.

Mona Lisa shares much in common with that painting. The film contains a female character who is serene, dark, and mysterious. It doesn't take a genius, however, to comprehend that the leading actress here is a lot sexier than the woman in the painting.

In Dreams Review


Weak
Neil Jordan (The Crying Game) just keeps going down down down. This time, it's a "thriller" about a loony who controls the dreams of Bening, making her loony as well. The loony (I'll kill the "suspense"--it's Downey) also kills her daughter and husband, you know, just for kicks. And there's apples apples apples galore! You know, for symbolism. I think.
