  1. https://deadline.com/2020/04/hellraiser-david-gordon-green-directing-hbo-series-halloween-pilot-1202918558/ HBO are to bring Hellraiser to TV. Pilot and several other episodes to be directed by David Gordon Green. It'll be written by Mark Verheiden and Michael Dougherty. Apparently not a remake, but built on the existing mythology.
  2. http://corporate.uktv.co.uk/news/article/celebrities-battle-it-out-dave-dara-o-briains-go-8-bit/ Starts Monday 5th September on Dave. so..? Usual Dave-level celebrities, playing videogames. Good or bad?
  3. My wife is Norwegian and I made a reference to the television show Time Team the other week. She had no idea what it was. Since she's a historian and was very impressed when my uncle (an archaeologist) showed us historical sites around Manchester city centre, I figured she might find it interesting. I took the time to dig up a torrent which had pretty much every episode in the show's 20 year history and downloaded the first few seasons. She just laughed at the show and found it boring. To be fair, it was the 90s and looking back on the way this is produced versus historical shows of today - there is quite a difference. In the first episode, one of the cast is walking along explaining the layout of the site and trips and falls down a rabbit hole. AND THEY KEEP IT IN THE SHOW. She just has to get up and carry on talking. Later, in the pub, the Time Team sit around talking over the top of each other whilst the camera focuses on one conversation of many noisy debates, whilst in the back, Baldrick steals some food from someone else's plate. To be honest, I loved it. I made my wife watch 3 episodes and then conceded to her opinion that it's a load of shit whilst secretly wanting to watch one more. Just wondering; do you have any fond memories or highlights on the show I should be cutting to? 20 years of television is a lot to watch and I could do with jumping to the best bits.
  4. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/twilight-zone-reboot-jordan-peele-works-at-cbs-all-access-1050554 CBS announced a Twilight Zone reboot. Coming to CBS All Access, the streaming platform they show Star Trek Discovery on. Here's a bit you will "love". Writer and showrunner is Marco Ramirez, writer for Daredevil season 2, Defenders and Sons of Anarchy. I know how people really took to all that The Hand and Reaching Out.
  5. No, it's not a remake of The Goonies. It's a show about students remaking The Goonies. Which may actually be an interesting change from a remake. It's follows a woman who failed to make it in New York and returns to her hometown as a substitute teacher. She agrees to help some students with the ambitious task of a shot-for-shot remake of The Goonies. Over the course of the season, the town gets inspired, which I assume means they eventually pull together to make it a reality, even the grumpy old man in the weird house, or whatever. https://deadline.com/2020/03/ramon-rodriguez-cast-fox-the-goonies-re-enactment-drama-pilot-1202875896/
  6. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/nov/27/netflix-announces-plans-to-adapt-roald-dahl-stories Netflix got the rights to a bunch of Roald Dahl stories and are going to animate them. Included are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator The BFG The Twits Matilda George’s Marvellous Medicine Boy: Tales of Childhood Going Solo The Enormous Crocodile The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me Henry Sugar Billy and the Minpins The Magic Finger Esio Trot Dirty Beasts Rhyme Stew Some not included are James and the Giant Peach, Danny the Champion of the World and Fantastic Mr Fox.
  7. I decided to give this a go tonight and have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it (despite not watching the original, 4-part, series last year, to which this is a sequel). If you're a fan of 24 and its ilk, then it's certainly worth a go. Whether it will maintain the pace over the ten weeks is unknown, but the opener didn't disappoint. Doubt it'll win any BAFTAs, but enjoyable shooty-bang-bang stuff nonetheless.
  8. The Safdies next one is a comedy TV show for Showtime, with Nathan Fielder of Nathan for You. It'll star Benny and Nathan. It's about an alleged curse hitting the relationship of the married stars of a HGTV show, Flipanthropy. Nathan is the husband of the couple and Benny the show's producer. It may or may not be loosely based on the breakdown of a real-life couple of a HGTV show Flip or Flop. Sounds a bit different from Good Time and Uncut Gems. It'll be interesting to see what comes out of it.
  9. Taika Waititi is bringing The Auteur to screen, starring Jude Law. The comic sounds fun.
  10. Apple are doing a deal with Amblin to bring back Spielberg’s Amazing Stories anthology series. NBCUniversal also involved to make it. (Paywalled) They're apparently looking to spend $5m+ per episode, for an initial 10 episode run. [edit] Non paywalled report
  11. http://deadline.com/2017/11/the-raid-gareth-evans-gangs-of-london-sky-hbo-1202213001/ Gareth Evans is doing a big budget gangland drama for Sky and Cinemax. Contemporary London is getting torn apart in a power struggle between international gangs after the leader of one is assassinated. Coming in 2019.
  12. Since I imagine that many would have missed this, since it's on BBC3, I urge you all to watch Murder in Successville, as the first episode is one of the funniest things I've seen on TV in a while. It's basically like a noire-themed Stella Street where actors play anachronistic versions of real-life celebrities. But the twist is that every episode an actual celebrity (i.e. played by themselves) has to solve a murder. They have no idea what's going on, and the rest of the cast improv around them. The first episode had some guy from Made in Chelsea who I'd never heard of, but he was very game and played along, but frequently couldn't stop himself from corpsing, which was hilarious. I kind of feel like I haven't sold it very well there - but it's only half an hour long, and I encourage you to watch it, even if you don't give a shit about Made in Chelsea or celebrities. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b05tr5f0/murder-in-successville-1-the-mob
  13. FX and Alex Garland are making an 8 episode limited series. It's about a computer engineer who suspects her employer is responsible for her boyfriend's murder. The young engineer is Sonoya Mizuno, who Garland had in both his previous movies. Her employer, the boss of a big tech company, is Nick Offerman.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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. Starts on 29 September in the US, for 10 episodes.
  21. 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.
  22. 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 lot of what happens.
  23. 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.
  24. Katee Sackhoff is back in space on 25 July. Also has Justin Chatwin, Selma Blair and Tyler Hoechlin.
