‘God Only Knows’, it was announced today. Currently in post production, Synchronicity will show the first footage from ‘God Only Knows’ at the EFM in Berlin, Germany.

Nick (Ben Barnes) is a smooth-talking, ambitious young man from the streets of Boston who has made some mistakes, and has found himself living a life of petty crime. Never gaining acceptance from his traditional, Italian-American family, Nick begins idolizing another, tighter-knit family – the Boston mafia. However, Nick soon realizes that the mafia isn’t what it once was and decides to take matters into his own hands only to land him and those around him in great danger and ultimately costing him everything.

I so wish I could say that this movie will be his next big break after Narnia, but alas. It sounds very much like ‘been there, seen that’. I am a huge Ben Barnes fan, and I so wish he’d follow in James McAvoy’s and Peter Dinklage’s footsteps, but he keeps getting parts in forgettable movies, and that is a real shame, because he is just so damn talented, and it’s such a waste. I do think that ‘Seventh Son’ might do it though, but I’m afraid that ‘God Only Knows’ will be another flop. I dearly hope I’m wrong.
My secret dream is to see him get a part in ‘Downton Abbey’, he’d be perfect.

We have seen Ben do such fine work in so many films. I predict he continues his trajectory with this film, hopefully using it as a stepping stone for even greater dramatic work to come!

I wish him success but I don’t want him to be huge, ala Robert Pattinson. I don’t want him to be a household name. Maybe that is selfish of me but I don’t think he wants that either. Right now I feel this is an exclusive club. I just hope that God only knows doesn’t go the way of “Locked in.”

James Mottern (‘God Only Knows’ director) has posted a new photo from the set, along with a really nice comment about Ben:

“In GOD ONLY KNOWS Ben brings to life a character with humor, tenderness, power and tremendous depth. I am continuously impressed with his riveting work and everything he brings to set. Will he someday win an Oscar? Yes.”

Perhaps, I don’t know enough the history of the cinema but for me the plot of ‘God Only Knows’ sounds a bit like that of ‘The Godfather’ (but of course, with a completely different ending). I think that in the reviews it might be compared to this famous movie. So, it’s a great challenge for the director, Ben and other members of the team. And it can be a great success. I hope that it will be so:)

He is great, we know that. I just hope Ben knows the same way we do :)

Para Killing Bono se dedicaron (Ben y Robby) a ver películas francesas, entre ellas “Un prophète”, estupendo film sobre delincuentes, ojalá pueda aplicar todo lo que logró aprender al verla. Ben debería probar con buenos directores , realmente talentosos para que lo orienten… hasta ahora no ha tenido esa oportunidad, lo más cercano ha sido Bigga than Ben o tal vez Easy Virtue, en las que estuvo muy bien. Claro que el único rol desafiante y, por lo mismo, el más interesante es Dorian Gray pero, cuántos errores en la dirección, con unas escenas perfectas y otras tan ridículas…
Mucha suerte al elegir nuevos proyectos!!!!

I’m looking forward to this one cause I’m dying to hear him try a “southie” accent. Can’t wait.
