Lucy Narrates War With No Guns NZ Documentary
 
Doc 2 Doc is a monthly event co-ordinated by the Screen Directors Guild of New Zealand, where documentary filmmakers get together and show works in various states of progress. Each month a different moderator will chair the discussion. The event is aimed a supporting a healthy documentary community in Auckland.

Our first event will be held at:

Where: The Lounge Bar Galatos
17 Galatos Street
Auckland
When: Wednesday 1 April 2009
7.30pm - 9.30pm

Participants are invited to drinks after the programme.

Out of a call for proposals we made a month ago, four filmmakers have been selected to screen selects from their ‘works in progress’. They will also have the opportunity to ask three questions to the audience after the screening, and get feedback on their films. Acclaimed filmmaker Leanne Pooley (Top Twins: Untouchable Girls, The Promise, Haunting Douglas) will be chairing the event, and each presentation will be limited to 15 minutes.  The filmmakers range from emerging to established and their projects are just as diverse. Below is a brief overview of our line up:

War with No Guns – director William Watson
Documentary – feature, currently in production

In the documentary War With No Guns narrator Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior Princess”) asks a simple question; In an age of civil war and conflict how do we create lasting peace? To answer one of the world’s most burning questions we will journey to Bougainville Island in Papua New Guinea and revisit New Zealand’s entry into the Pacific’s most brutal civil war. In an unprecedented example of peacekeeping, a multinational force, led by New Zealand, chose to leave their guns behind and instead bring guitars and hakas (New Zealand Maori war dance) as their weapons of choice. War With No Guns looks at the fascinating story of how a war was fought without guns, by an army who united the people to peace.

Lucy on Spartacus in Regular Role!
 
The following is from the Chicago Tribune

 

Is Lucy Lawless picking up her sword again?

The former “Xena: Warrior Princess” star has been cast in Starz’ new action series, “Spartacus: Blood and Sand,” the network announced today. The “Spartacus” series is set in 73 B.C. Spartacus was a slave who led a revolt against the Roman Republic.

Lawless, most recently starred in “Battlestar Galactica,” plays Lucretia, who with her husband Batiatus own a gladiator camp called the Ludus. They also own the soldier-turned-slave Spartacus. According to the network, “the couple has fallen on hard times financially and has bought Spartacus hoping his fighting prowess will help them regain their status in the brutal world of gladiatorial contests.”

British actor Andy Whitfield has been cast as Spartacus after what the network describes as “an exhaustive worldwide search.” He has starred in many Australian drama series, including “McLeod’s Daughters,” “Packed to the Rafters,” “The Strip” and “Out of the Blue.”

The series begins production April 1 in New Zealand and is slated to premiere on Starz in January 2010. “Xena” producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi, along with Joshua Donen, are exec producing the series.

Other cast members include:

  • Erin Cummings (“Dollhouse”) as Thracian priestess Sura, Spartacus’ wife;
  • Peter Mensah (“300,” “Avatar”) as Doctore, Batiatus’ most loyal and trusted slave;
  • Manu Bennett (“30 Days of Night,” “The Condemned”) as Crixus, the top gladiator at Batiatus’ Ludus;
  • Antonio Te Maioha (“Xena: Warrior Princess,” “Legend of the Seeker”) as Barca, a big, hulking brute of a man who is Batiatus’ bodyguard and hit man;
  • Craig Parker (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “Legend of the Seeker”) as Glaber, a Roman Legate, who blames Spartacus for his failed military campaign;
  • Nick E. Tarabay (“Crash,” “The Sopranos”) as Ashur, a former gladiator who is now the Ludus’ resident bookie.

    "Gawd no" Lucy Turns Down Lord Mayor Role...
     
     
    Lord Mayor: 'Gawd no' says Warrior Princess
     
    Lucy Lawless – Stuff's choice for the first Lord Mayor of Super Auckland – has turned down the job.  "Gawd, no," Xena the Warrior Princess said after being told she topped the poll.
     
    "I wouldn't take the job even if I had the slightest aptitude for it...which I don't."
     
    This leaves the way open for Auckland Mayor John Banks - and he was a whole lot less coy about taking it when asked.
     
    The poll drew more than 10,000 votes.
     
    Ms Lawless gained 1924 votes or 18.2% of the populist poll.
     
    Mr Banks was just 43 votes behind, on 17.8%
     
    The poll may show the mood of Auckland  ready for someone a little less conventional.
     
     
     
    From Stuff.co.nzAs Auckland awaits "judgment day" over its future city status, mayor John Banks is in a struggle with Xena the Warrior Princess to become Super-City Lord Mayor.
     
    The Royal Commission on Auckland Governance reports its findings to the public this afternoon, an event Mr Banks has described as crucial to the region’s future. He is coy though on whether he wants to be in charge of an expanded city, so we put it to Stuff readers with an online poll.
     
    By the time about 9000 people had voted, Mr Banks had taken 18
    percent, while Lucy Lawless – best known as Xena – was coming up with 17.6 percent. Just 31 votes in it.

    Lucy in Spartacus - Recurring Role?
     

    The New Zealand herald has an article about the upcoming 13 episode first season of Spartacus. Lucy is going to appear on the show but also mentioned that Lucy's role will be recurring. Interesting. Hope it's true.
     

    NZ Herald - 26 March 2009 Spartacus returns

    Just as the local production on the first season of Legend of the Seeker winds down, another of producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi's latest New Zealand-based productions is about to start shooting. And this one will involve Lucy Lawless - Tapert's missus - in a recurring role.

    Turn Out The Lights - Earth Hour 28 March 2009
     

    In 2007 Sydney created Earth Hour, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. It was seriously majorly cool to see the lights go out in my city and to see the stars glowly brightly in the middle of the city without the artificial light. They said no one would do it but what started out as an idea turned into reality and now the whole world is going to be doing it!

    In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.

    Lucy fans have been urged to join in the fun this year! Lucy urged everyone to be more eco friendly and this is a way of doing that.  So on the 28th March at 8:30 pm (which is Lucy's wedding anniversary), switch off the lights, turn off the tv, your computer (and other non essential items) and give the earth a bit of a breather.

    If you a Lucy fan and want to tell Lucy you are also doing this, you can send your name and location and the list will be given to Lucy!

    Lucy's Call to Duty...
     

    The Sunday Star Times in New Zealand has an article about Lucy's latest campaign fund raiser with Starship and it also reveals she will be guest starring on Rob's new show Spartacus.

     

    Ethan Rae wasn't terribly impressed when some woman called Lucy Lawless posed with him for Starship Hospital's latest fundraiser.

    The four-year-old, a former patient who fronts the campaign to collect old mobile  phones and sell them to raise  money for the Auckland  children's hospital, clearly hadn't  seen the Xena TV shows that  made the Kiwi actress an international star.

    After all, said Lawless, "new stars aren't interested in old-timers like me".

    Lawless, who recently returned to New Zealand to work on husband Robert Tapert's TV show Spartacus, is a board trustee for the Starship Foundation. She said her enthusiasm for the hospital only grew when she had to call on its services. "One of my kids went there when a cup of tea exploded - it had been in the microwave too often - and burnt his chest".

    Lucy Mention: Undercover Irish - Yahoo GetBack
     
    The following appeared on Yahoo Movies

    The Celebrities We Didn't Know Had Irish Ancestry


    Some celebrities are glaringly Irish -- Conan O'Brien, Ron Howard, Allison Hannigan -- flaunting their red hair and freckles for all to see. But others are a little harder to spot, hiding behind gangster roles and cowboy hats. We were surprised to find some famous faces with roots on the Emerald Isle, including that of our new President.

    Lucy Lawless She may be the most famous actress to come out of New Zealand, but Xena: Warrior Princess is the daughter of the very Irish Catholic Frank and Julie Ryan. She took her now ex-husband Garth's name when they married in 1988.

    Angel of Death DVD News
     
    From an interview with Ed Brubaker which has news about the release of the DVD (which would be good for those outside the US who haven't had a chance to see the series)

    NRAMA: The DVD version of this is coming out in June - will it be seamlessly joined together, or will there still be chapter breaks?

    EB: The DVD will be a feature film cut, and will probably be a lot different than the episode cuts. Some stuff didn't work in the episodes that will in a longer seamless cut, and some stuff that we needed for the episodes, so they all stand on their own a bit, won't be needed for the feature cut. I think it'll be a bit longer, but some stuff from the episodes won't be in it, and other stuff will, is what I'm hearing. I'm really excited to see what they do, and I was speaking to the director about some of it the other day.

    Lucy Mention in Craig Horner Interview

    Seeker). Brent, the interviewer sent me the link of his interview with
    Craig and there is a Lucy mention (we all know the answer to this
    question and it's a no - Lucy mentioned she won't be on LotS any time soon).

    TTO: I’ve heard Lucy Lawless say the same thing about her days in Xena, how being the focus of everything, she soon realized she was setting the tone for the whole set. Speaking of which, is there any chance she’ll guest on the show in the second season?

    Lucy is mentioned in an interview with Ed Brubaker (Angel of Death) for Comic Book Resources:

    You have an amazing cast. It’s kind of a “Xena: Warrior Princess” reunion, was that deliberate or did that just happen?

    Well, it actually just kind of happened. I wrote the part for Lucy [Lawless] but that was actually [director] Paul [Etheredge’s] idea to come up with a part for Lucy Lawless where it would be sort of reflective, a little bit, of their previous relationship where Zoë was her body-double. So the part was sort of written for her. She really threw herself all into it.

    Lucy's PSA and Message from Myrina Films
     
    AfterEllen has mentioned Lucy's fantastic PSA "The Difference". Myrina Films has posted a comment in regard to this post:

     

    Hi all,

    I wanted to say thank you to Sarah and AE for posting the PSA, but also thank you to AE members for your support.

    It was fantastic that Lucy and Eva agreed to narrate for us. They are both strong supporters of the LGBT community.

    If you have time, you can check out the other vids at: http://www.youtube.com/user/CAEqualityNow  and please pass the PSA's on, repost, etc. Many people have questions about the difference between domestic partnership and marriage. This vid might  help to open the eyes of those on the proverbial gay marriage fence.

    Hopefully things will go our way with the looming California Supreme Court Prop 8 decision.

    "Separate but equal is inherently unequal!"

    Bedtime Stories in Italy 27 March 2009
     
    Many thanks to Barbara Bruno for the following news:

    Yesterday I saw on TV the Promo of BedTime Stories, in Italian they changed the title in: Racconti Incantati(Enchanted Tales). They were showing the bit where Adam Sandler is in The Colosseum, and you can spot Lucy with the black wig. The movie is coming here on theater the 27th of March.

    Here is the Italian Trailer from Walt Disney Picture.

    Lucy on Angel of Death Plus Interview
     

    Sharon Delaney reports on Lucy's official site that Lucy will be making her first appearance on Angel of Death at the end of Episode 5 (9 March). It's not until Episode 6 where we get to see her. Episode 5 was accidently turned on Monday (2 March) and having watched the episode (before they found the problem AND turned on USA only filtering), it appears that Lucy's character of Vera is shown at the end but very blurry.

    SciFiWire will also have an interview with Lucy on Monday (US time) in preparation for Lucy's introduction as Vera on Angel of Death.

    TV Squad Ten: TV's hottest female non-humans

    7. D'Anna/Number 3 (Lucy Lawless), Battlestar Galactica
    Rebels are sexy, and D'Anna is no exception. BSG's most curios Cylon got her entire line "boxed" for railing against the Cylon credo and then was resurrected to help fight a civil war. She's icy and tough, but she's also passionate and well spoken. We left her on Earth a few episodes ago, but something tells me we haven't seen the last of D'Anna. She's the last of her line, and that puts her in a very unique position in the Cylon hierarchy.

    Apologies from Crackle

    Hi all,

    So, I want to come to you here and apologize for the mix up. Trust me, I know how frustrating/annoying/disappointing geofiltering is...especially for fans. Lilacwire is correct, and all I can really say is that we are unable to offer any of our content outside the US. Please understand this is our policy. As many of you probably know, this is part of a larger discussion within the world of online entertainment, and I apologize that you have been impacted.

    To "Stevenagy," yes, I am sorry too that more people won't be able to see her work; hopefully this show will push her up to the place we want to see her, on the big screen.

    For "anonymous," you can send your hate mail here: ckaszer@sonypictures.com. I am more than happy to listen to your feedback and route it to the proper people, but please do not abuse this channel.

    So, again, my apologies, and I hope you understand our situation, as I understand your frustrations. We all are doing our best.

    Thanks,
    Chad
    Community Manager, Crackle

    Lucy Angel of Death Reviews and Pics
     


    AfterEllen.com - Stuntwoman Zoë Bell kicks ass as "The Angel of Death"

    Zoë Bell fans, rejoice! Bell's new web series, Angel of Death, premiered this week on Crackle.com, and it's a wild and bloody ride.

    <Snipped & snipped pic of Lucy as Vera>

    Lucy Lawless isn't in the premiere episode, but she'll appear soon as, Vera, "Eve’s curious next-door neighbor, who learns too much, and gets tangled in Eve’s web." (And, no, I don't think " Eve's web" is a euphemism for something naughty.) 


    She does all her own stunts - Stuff.co.nz
    Has a Lucy pic with Zoe (Xena days)

    Kiwi stuntwoman Zoe Bell, who started off doubling as Xena: Warrior Princess for Lucy Lawless and graduated to playing herself in QT's Grindhouse film Death Proof, now has her own online series. Bell plays Eve, a killer for hire, in Angel of Death on Crackle.com.

    Lucy in Angel of Death Episode 5
     

    Lucy appears (somewhat blurred) right at the end of this episode. It's extremely violent and Zoe does an exceptional job. I'm not quite sure why this episode popped up early..it could be a mistake. It's due for release on the 6th March according to the site.

    Angel of Death Ep 5 "Escape" starring Zoe Bell

    Eve's tied up with a gun to her head. Basically screwed. All she
    needed is 1 more second. Can she escape?

    2009 Xena Convention Reports by KT
     
    I have to say this is one of my favourite parts of any convention page - KT's reports. One of the joys of going to conventions is to meet up with your friends (and I think a good many people just go for that
    reason). It's always a joy to meet up with KT because she is so funny and cool. Last year I was sitting next to her and watched her do her thing with trying to transcribe everything. It's pretty impressive.
    Just thought I would mention that because when you're reading these reports...it's not taped, it's handwritten. This year she had moved (I wonder if it's because last year I kept yakking while she was trying to write? <g>

    Excellent New Lucy Interview - Sirens of Cinema
     
    Sister Mary Prostitute The Cyborg Warrior  Princess or The Career of Lucy Lawless.
                   
    Sirens of Cinema #13

    Lucy interview / article which has to be the best article I've read on Lucy for a long time (going back to the Metro article way back when)

    Lucy talks about working on Xena, Battlestar Galactica, Angel of Death and other topics. It's a very long interview (6 pages). The title is a bit odd but the rest of the article is fantastic. Something else which amused me was the picture of Mother Superior from Bitch Slap ...notice Lucy's wedding ring..very fancy for a nun :)

     

    The article was scanned by LB and transcribed by me (if you find any typos..they are mine)
