Cinema 22 January, 2017

In less than a month the HBO series event Big Little Lies landed on HBO and on OCS City with a crazy cast … but how did this happen?
You continue a little teaser arrival of Big Little Lies, succession Pretty Little Liars and Desperate Housewives will happen from February 19 on HBO and the US in 20 + 24 on HBO generation OCS City. Today it is to his casting five stars that we will be interested because rarely seen a miniseries bring together so many headliners. Reese Witherspoon (Madeline Martha Mackenzie), Shailene Woodley (Jane Chapman), Alexander Skarsgård (Perry Wright), Adam Scott (Ed Mackenzie), Zoe Kravitz (Bonnie Carlson), Laura Dern (Renata Klein). .. so many names that sound familiar to our ears, and we look forward to seeing in action. But how did the series get such actors and actresses? Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon have said more about the series production process in an interview with Entertainment Weekly . This is Reese Witherspoon who has read the book by Liane Moriarty first and found it “exciting” to the point of reading it in one night.
Admittedly, the story of a wealthy seaside community in which the little secrets eventually lead to murder has something to captivate . And it was enough to launch the machine because one of Reese Witherspoon’s associates then called Nicole Kidman – a longtime acquaintance – telling her she had found the perfect project. After devouring Big Little Lies Nicole Kidman was able to meet its author Liane Moriarty to make it a difficult proposition refusable: “If you give us the rights to the book, it can be adapted” . Director Jean-Marc Vallée, who had just finished his Oscar-nominated Wild film and with Reese Witherspoon as heroine, could not refuse when she offered him to take care of the seven episodes. And this is how the project carried out by Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon ended up with more known names than one can fit on a poster to the point that during the filming, Reese Witherspoon sometimes had the impression of “Watch a drama lesson”. In short, in other words we can expect a series of quality and if you still need convincing, we have already listed three reasons to wait Big Little Lies next February! What do you think ?
