  1. I know I'm posting two threads at the same time, because there's two versions coming. This one is from the Europe and Africa division of Fox TV and Canal+. It's eight parts and set in the present day. It's created and written by Misfits Howard Overman, who intends to explore themes of racial superiority and ethnic conflict.
  2. John Krasinski will be the fifth Jack Ryan in a new TV show coming to Amazon. It's not been greenlit for a full series yet, but is expected to be. Carlton Cuse will run the show and Michael Bay will be a producer. They say it's not a direct adaptation of books, but a contemporary take on Ryan's days in the CIA with some book stuff used as source material.
  3. So this is what Dave Filoni is doing after Clone Wars and Rebels. It is set prior to The Force Awakens and will follow Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. Seemingly dropping the CG of the prior shows and going for an anime-inspired look. The article says it will feature BB-8, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron and Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma. But I wouldn't be surprised if it's guest appearances rather than regular. It's coming in autumn.
  4. https://deadline.com/2019/12/snow-crash-sci-fi-drama-series-hbo-max-michael-bacall-joe-cornish-paramount-tv-1202809103/ Snow Crash is being adapted for HBO Max. Joe Cornish directing. Written by Michael Bacall, of 21 Jump Street and Scott Pilgrim.
  5. The Illuminatus! Trilogy, the books from the 70s, are to be brought to TV. It'll be made by Hivemind, who are behind the excellent The Expanse and the hopefully good The Witcher. Interestingly, they are also partnering with Brian Taylor, of Crank and Happy!
  6. Another version of the story, this time starring David Tennant as Phileas Fogg. It's being made by a group of European broadcasters and looks like it will have a multinational cast. It's due to air towards the end of 2020 and will be on BBC in the UK.
  7. I know I'm posting two threads at the same time, because there's two versions coming. This one, from BBC, stars Rafe Spall, Eleanor Tomlinson, Robert Carlyle and Rupert Graves. It's set in Edwardian England, for a change from other screen adaptations. Director Craig Viveiros says he's trying to capture a feeling that isn't cosy or predictable. It's already in production.
  8. https://deadline.com/video/godfather-of-harlem-trailer-extended-look-epix-series-forest-whitaker/ Forest Whitaker plays Bumpy Johnson in 60s Harlem. Just out of prison, he finds the area now controlled by the Genovese crime family. Malcolm X apparently plays a big part and Muhammad Ali, then Cassius Clay, appears in the trailer, in a fight, but I don't know how much he's part of it. As well as Whitaker, it's got Vincent D’Onofrio, lfenesh Hadera, Nigél Thatch, Paul Sorvino, Chazz Palminteri, Giancarlo Esposito, Lucy Fry, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Antoinette Crowe-Legacy.
  9. Despite the bad sequel, they're bringing Sin City to TV. Can't help but wonder if people really want more than the original movie, as a one-off oddball experiment. Although I'll probably watch it anyway if it's not a total disaster. The deal also includes a hard-R rated animated prequel.
  10. I know there are at least a few posters on here who have read Patrick Rothfuss's Kingkiller Chronicles "trilogy". It was announced quite a while back that his works would be adapted for TV and into movies, possibly other media (games, stage etc). Now it's been announced that Lin-Manuel Miranda will take up the mantle of creative producer on the movie and tv adaptations, with the option to create a stage adaptation as well some time in the future. I'm quite excited for this although I think I'll have to reread the books, I realized the other day that I've forgotten a lo
  11. https://deadline.com/2019/11/chinatown-prequel-series-pilot-robert-towne-david-fincher-netflix-1202789041/ Netflix have got David Fincher and Robert Towne (original movie writer) together for a prequel series to the movie. It'll focus on a younger Jake.
  12. Third season of American Crime Story is about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. Lewinsky herself is involved as a producer. They're getting the cast together. It'll be based on the book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President. Starts shooting in March and is currently aiming for 27 September airing. Clive Owen as Bill Clinton Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones Hillary Clinton hasn't been cast yet
  13. Katee Sackhoff is back in space on 25 July. Also has Justin Chatwin, Selma Blair and Tyler Hoechlin.
  14. Nothing official yet but it would be great to see HBO do some science fiction. http://www.thewrap.com/interstellars-jonah-nolan-developing-foundation-series-for-hbo-wbtv-exclusive/
  15. Season 2 is go. This time, set during World War 2. Something about an "uncanny spectre" following Japanese-Americans from their home in California to internment camps and the Pacific war. It's being run by Alexander Woo from True Blood with Max Borenstein of Kong: Skull Island.
  16. It's a French series about a young woman who has been writing successful horror novels with the inspiration of her recurring nightmares about a witch, Marianne. When she decides to stop writing about her after 15 years, her nightmares return with a vengeance, seemingly intersecting with her real life, thus forcing her to return to her hometown to find out what is happening. I know, doesn't really sound like anything new, but I'm 4 episodes in and very pleasantly surprised. There are some wonderfully eerie scenes that truly manage to build suspense. Without spoiling anything, there
  17. Nicolas Winding Refn is doing another TV show, for HBO and Canal+. Maniac Cop, with John Hyams. Both will be directing the series. They were originally developing it as a movie, but as they developed it, they wanted to explore the world in greater depth. Refn calls it an unadulterated, action-packed horror odyssey.
  18. https://deadline.com/2019/05/marvel-hulu-live-action-ghost-rider-helstrom-series-1202604999/ Ghost Rider is getting his own show on Hulu. Gabriel Luna is reprising the role of Robbie Reyes, who he played on Agents of SHIELD.
  19. This looks like "What if Fyre Festival was a behavioural experiment?" With Kate Bosworth and Natalie Martinez.
  20. http://deadline.com/2017/10/netflix-raising-dion-black-superhero-family-drama-michael-b-jordan-from-co-star-charles-d-kings-macro-carol-barbee-1202182365/ A 10 episode (an hour each) "sci-fi family drama" based on a short (and comic) by ad and music video director Dennis Liu (short posted below). Michael B. Jordan is also involved in bringing the show about, as well as having a supporting role. It's about a single mother raising a child, Dion, who starts to exhibit superpowers. She tries to keep it secret, especially from those who would exploit it. The orig
  21. https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2019/sep/16/100-best-tv-shows-of-the-21st-century Actually not a bad top 10. Missing Curb, but aside from that it's decent. Better than the film one. I fucking love the Sopranos though.
  22. http://tvline.com/2016/08/30/squirrel-girl-tv-series-comedy-new-warriors-marvel/ Marvel and ABC Studios are developing a half hour comedy show based around New Warriors and that Squirrel Girl you all keep talking about. They're currently trying to sell it to cable networks and streaming services. I don't know if the forum Squirrel Girl fans are happy with her going to TV instead of movies though? Of course, it's early days and doesn't even have a home yet, so could end up not happening.

    Maniac

    Maniac, a dark comedy staring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill as two strangers drawn to a mysterious pharmaceutical trial. Unsurprisingly, things don't go as planned. Also stars Justin Theroux as the drug's inventor and Sally Field in a recurring role. It's a limited run 10-episode series directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga. Based on a Norwegian series of the same name. Seems to have some good ingredients at least. Streaming on 21 September. Teaser doesn't give much away.
  24. Seeing as there was never an official thread for this show, the fact it's continuing straight into it's second season this weekend seems like a good opportunity as any to start one. The show started very strongly but suffered from delays getting episodes to air once the first 8 or 9 were completed.. But it's well worth catching up on now the first season is complete.. The writing has been excellent and the animation is superb, looking particularly lovely in HD. 'Invasion' has been appended to the shows title for season2, due to the fact that the majority of this year will be focussed on o
  25. https://deadline.com/2018/06/wu-assassins-netflix-martial-arts-crime-drama-series-iko-uwais-stars-1202419729/ Iko Uwais stars in Wu Assassins, a martial arts sci-fi crime drama on Netflix. He is also lead martial arts and fight choreographer and stunt coordinator. Also stars Byron Mann, from The Expanse, Hell on Wheels and others you've probably seen him in.
