Just read that there is a new TV version of the classic Moonfleet - I'm sure it's been mentioned somewhere on here - coming, with Ray Winstone, Ben Chaplin and Aneurin Barnard (Richard III in The White Queen) starring. It'll be shown on Sky 1 in the Uk.

Watched Moonfleet over the weekend - fine as an escapist romp, but only one actor even sounded vaguely as if they actually came from Dorset, and some of the dialogue was atrocious. And a lot of the action was in the dark, too, which made some viewing a bit difficult.
