The Painted Queen, the final book in the Amelia Peabody series, has just been released by William Morrow. Though I cannot remember the precise year I discovered the series by Elizabeth Peters, I do recall my response: Gimme! One after the other, I devoured each installment. I couldn't get enough of the supremely feisty heroine whose ability to attract murder and mayhem was matched only be her keen intelligence and rapier wit. And her archeologist husband, Radcliffe Emerson? Bluster and brawn and a brain coveted by his peers, this was a man up to the challenge.

Hill Harper has signed on with Archrok Entertainment to Co-Executive Produce the Egyptian film trilogy 'Protector of the Gods.' This historical project will be directed by the stories' creator, Kameko Tarnez. The story is set in a magical world created by Academy Award-winning VFX Director Pete Polyakov ('Mad Max: Fury Road,' 'Interstellar,' and 'Batman v Superman') and Academy Award-winning Production Designer David Bryan ('The Hurt Locker,' '47 Meters Down,' 'The Other Side of the Door'). Vol. 1 of the trilogy follows the journey of female Pharaoh Hatshepsut, played by British actress Shingai Shoniwa (lead singer of the multi-platinum selling group Noisettes). This will be followed by Vol. 2 (Nefertiti) and Vol. 3 (Cleopatra). Filming will begin in August 2018. 'Protector of the Gods' is an epic and magical story that we have yet to see envisioned nor attempted by a Hollywood studio. I am honored and excited to be co-executive producer of this amazing film and help bring it to audiences across the globe. Kameko's storytelling takes you through the larger than life history of ancient Egypt from a distinctly African perspective. I think it is essential that moviegoers understand and watch historically accurate depictions of African history, from more than simply a slave narrative. Now more than ever, audiences are hungry for stories such as these told without bias. I am excited to be a part of bringing it to millions around the world!' - Hill Harper

Zola Jesus is pleased to share the video for 'Ash to Bone (Johnny Jewel Remix)' which was co-directed by Zola Jesus and Jenni Hensler, exclusively available on WeTransfer's editorial platform WePresent for 48 hours. Based on a track originally from 2017's Okovi, this remixed version arose from a mutual, longstanding appreciation. 'As a longtime fan of Johnny Jewel's work,' Nika Roza Danilova explains 'it was surreal to hear him re-work 'Ash To Bone.' Hearing his arrangement was like experiencing a collision of musical worlds. It was as if this is how the song was always supposed to sound.' While the remarkably prolific Jewel muses 'I had the acapella playing on loop one morning in the piano room. Her lyrics were so vividly mournful through the hazy fog...I turned over the hourglass, pulled back the curtains, opened the window, & let Nika's voice soar.'
