Get Your First Snowy Look At FX’s FARGO

There’s no denying it; Fargo, the 1996 crime-drama from Joel and Ethan Coen, is a classic. A few years ago, word popped up that FX was planning to adapt the film into a mini-series. Well, that happened, and now we can get our first look at the result:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uj5LRr2Zzy4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uj5LRr2Zzy4</a>

As is typical with initial FX trailers, there isn’t much to go on from this, just a snowy car and Billy Bob Thornton’s face. It does seem the show has captured the feel and tone of the Coen Brothers film perfectly, which is always a good sign (they’re serving as executive producers for the TV version).

According to the official synopsis of the series, “A drifter named Lorne Malvo (Thornton) arrives in small-town Minnesota and influences the population with his malice and violence, including put-upon insurance salesman Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman).”

It’s currently unknown how much of the film’s storyline will be in the series, if any of it at all. As of now, this seems more like a really cool crime drama that just carries the Fargo name. Either way, it’s damn cool, and in the age of True Detective, this could end up being something really special.

The series is being written by Noah Hawley and will premiere on FX this April.

UPDATE: Comedy duo Key & Peele have been announced to be joining the series for a 4-episode arc. The two will play FBI partners Webb Pepper (Peele) and Bill Budge (Key). Reportedly, the arc will begin with the two having a “violent run in” with Thorton’s Malvo and will become focused on finding him again.

Stephen King Promises No One Is Safe In Season Two of UNDER THE DOME

One of the most successful series of last year, CBS’ adaptation of the Stephen King novel Under The Dome is starting production on its second season, and the network is offering up a treat for viewers.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVNCz6DePAQ" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVNCz6DePAQ</a>

While the announcement of a second season was originally met with speculation, as the initial plan was for the series to be a limited event, it seems the current intention is to go all out in season two. The fact that King himself will be writing the premiere script of the Brian K. Vaughan adaptation is a good sign the team behind the series just wants to give fans what they want.

As for King’s computer… sometimes you just gotta love that guy’s sense of humor. But let’s be honest for a moment, if you could tweet with a typewriter, you would.

Season two is scheduled to start with King’s episode on CBS June 30th. Pull the lever, Junior….

FX Adapting Sci-Fi Novel ‘Redshirts’ As Limited Series

XCLUSIVE: John Scalzi’s 2012 comedic sci-fi novel Redshirts is headed to the small screen. FX has teamed with veteran feature producer Jon Shestack (Dan In Real Life) and producer-director Ken Kwapis (Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants) and his partner Alexandra Beattie to develop a limited series based on the book, which won the 2013 Hugo Award. Search is underway for writers to pen the adaption, with Kwapis set to direct the opening episode. He, Shestack and Beattie executive produce.

Set in the 25th century, Redshirts follows the adventures of five new recruits on the Starship Intrepid who come to realize that the ship’s crewmembers are dying at an alarming rate. Their investigation leads to the mind-bending discovery that a science fiction television show, produced in the early 21st century, has somehow “intruded” upon their reality and “warped” it. In other words, the lives of the crew are following the course of a television narrative over which they have no control. “Redshirts is a madcap, hyper-meta tale,” Shestack said. Added Kwapis, “If Jorge Luis Borges had been a staff writer on the original Star Trek, he would no doubt have concocted a story like Redshirts.”

Most recently Kwapis and Beattie, under their In Cahoots banner, developed the Showtime comedy Happyish, which received a series order last month but has been put on hold in light of the tragic death of star Philip Seymour Hoffman. The company, repped by UTA and Code Entertainment, previously produced Outsourced for NBC. Shestack, repped by Alan Grodin, currently is developing the novel Carter Beats The Devil at Warner Bros, with Phil Lord and Chris Miller directing. Scalzi is represented by Joel Gotler of IPG. FX has been at the forefront of the current longform resurgence with a slew of limited/event series projects. Its first such series, Fargo, premieres April 15

Vince Gilligan’s BATTLE CREEK Finds Its Lead

When last we heard, the upcoming Vince Gilligan created/David Shore run CBS drama, Battle Creek, had found its director in the form of X-Men: Days of Future Past’s Bryan Singer. The choice made sense as Singer had previously directed the pilot of Shore’s last hit series, House. But today’s new on who will lead the drama comes will a much less sense of explanation, and a more heightened sense of curiosity.

According to Deadline, Transformers star Josh Duhamel will play FBI agent Milton Chamberlain opposite Dean Winters as Detective Russ Agnew. The series will follow the two as they work to clean-up “the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek” despite having different world views. “Duhamel’s Milton is a clean-cut FBI agent; a sincere, humble, even naive guy who heads from Detroit to Battle Creek to set up a satellite FBI office.”

So there you have it, and actually, it’s not that bad. Say what you will about Transformers, but when it comes to TV, Duhamel can bring the goods. He was by far the most entertaining part of his last series regular role, Danny McCoy on Las Vegas. There should be no doubt that Duhamel is capable of pulling this off, and with Dean Winters and Kal Penn by his side, the one screen talent on this direct-to-series drama is shaping up to be just as good as the off-screen group.

Meet Ms. Delphox: Keeley Hawes to Guest on Season 8 of DOCTOR WHO

More casting news from the Doctor Who world! Less than a month after the announcement of Samuel Anderson’s casting as the mysterious Danny Pink comes the news of another character. Actress Keeley Hawes, of MI-5, Ashes to Ashes, Line of Duty, and the 2010-12 remake of Upstairs Downstairs, has been cast as a one-off character in the fifth episode of Season 8. Hawes will play the mysterious Ms. Delphox, “a powerful out of this world character with a dark secret” whom the Twelfth Doctor and Clara Oswald will come across when they arrive on a “strange and puzzling planet.”

The episode’s title hasn’t been released yet, but it’s been written by Steve Thompson (also of Sherlock) and directed by Douglas Mackinnon.



Of her role on the show, Hawes said, “I am delighted to join Doctor Who and to be working with this incredible team. Ms Delphox is a great character and someone I’ve had a lot of fun playing.”

And Steven Moffat, of head writer fame, added, “Anyone watching Jed Mercurio’s amazing Line of Duty will know that Keeley Hawes is having one hell of year. And now it’s about to get even better as she achieves the greatest villainy yet attempted on Doctor Who: she plays a banker.”

A banker? She does look like a banker, I suppose. She also kind of looks like Madame Kovarian from Series 6. A little bit. I truly have no idea what the episode will be about with a character description like that, but I’m very intrigued. Hawes has been excellent in everything I’ve seen her in, especially 2008′s Ashes to Ashes.

Meet ORPHAN BLACK’s New Clone, Jennifer Fitzsimmons… Plus New Season 2 Photos

You know what they say: mo’ clones, mo’ problems. By the looks of the latest clone to join the pack, those problems are serious. Meet Jennifer Fitzsimmons, the latest clone to join the sisterhood like no other on BBC America’s Orphan Black. And if you couldn’t tell by the major hair loss on display below, she is very sick with the same disease that’s causing Cosima such duress.

Yikes. A 28-year old teacher and swim coach, “Jennifer is a bright-eyed Midwestern pure of heart girl,” according to one of the show’s co-creators, Graeme Manson. But, as other co-creator John Fawcett explains, Jennifer was naïve, “she didn’t know she was a clone, and was being monitored by her boyfriend. She gets sick, and with a kind of the version of the illness that Katja had. And of course, a version of the illness that Cosima has. Just that discovery alone is the kind of discovery that shakes Cosima. It really rattles her.”

Lucky for those hoping to learn more, there’s also a series of video diaries you can watch to introduce you to Ms. Fitzsimmons:



Anyone else have a case of the shudders? What has transpired between her, Dr. Leekie, and DYAD group for her to end up this way? Is her sickness really incurable or is something far more nefarious going on here? We have SO many questions. Guess we’ll have to wait until April 19th to have them answered.

We’re just over a month away from the second season of the series, but it’s a far different scenario from when season one debuted a year ago. With the cult-like status its garnered in such a short amount of time — especially among folks who write about TV — the show teamed up with Entertainment Weekly to make the grand unveiling. They also have several photos from the upcoming season that you can check out in a gallery.

GHOSTBUSTERS Sequel To Start Production In Early 2015

Could this actually be happening this time? Depite probably knowing better, Sony is moving forward with Ghostbusters III after all, and is eyeing an early 2015 start date for production. One thing that it won’t have on board this time is Ivan Reitman, who directed the original Ghostbusters thirty years ago as well as its sequel in 1989. Speaking with Deadline, Reitman said he just didn’t feel right continuing with the recent death of his friend, Harold Ramis, who played Egon Spengler. “When I came back from Harold’s funeral, it was really moving and it made me think about a lot of things. I’d just finished directing Draft Day, which I’m really happy with and proud of. Working on a film that is smaller and more dramatic was so much fun and satisfying. I just finally met with Amy and Doug Belgrad when I got back. I said I’d been thinking about it for weeks, that I’d rather just produce this Ghostbusters. I told them I thought I could help but let’s find a really good director and make it with him. So that’s what we’ve agreed will happen. I didn’t want all kinds of speculation about what happened with me, that is the real story.”

This is a good news/bad news kind of scenario. The good news is that Reitman seems to know and understand that proceeding on a straightforward Ghostbusters III without the late Harold Ramis or the reportedly uncooperative Bill Murray is really kind of pointless. It’s pretty much time for what’s left of the original players to all move on in anything but an advisory/cameo type capacity. The original Ghostbusters was lightning in a bottle, one of the best comedies ever made, and one they couldn’t even come close to topping when they went for round two a few years later. So what’s the good news? Well, this will be less a Ghostbusters III and more a Ghostbusters reboot, a brand extension, and a way to keep those Ghostbusters logo t-shirts selling at Target. Which means if it sucks, it won’t be as embarrassing as seeing geriatric Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson running around New York with heavy proton packs on their backs. And if by some miracle it’s good? You’ve saved a series where, as Dr. Venkman pointed out in the original movie, “The franchise rights alone will make us wealthy beyond your wildest dreams.”  That revival hasn’t happened yet, but you know Sony really wants it to.

http://www.nerdist.com/2014/03/watch-the-first-english-dub-clip-of-attack-on-titan/

Watch the First English Dub Clip of ATTACK ON TITAN

Strap on your 3D maneuver gear and prepare for the sweet strains of Linked Horizon’s “Guren no Yumiya”, because the first English-language dub clip of Attack on Titan is here at long last. While many diehard anime fans, myself included, have already seen episodes of the massively popular apocalyptic anime series, it hasn’t actually received an official US release yet. Until now, that is. This weekend at Anime Boston (March 21-23), FUNimation will premiere the dub during their panel and, just in case you weren’t in enough suspense, they will be keeping the identity of who will voice series protagonist Eren Jaeger a secret until then. In the meantime, they’ve offered up this first clip of the English dub to give you a taste of the colossal madness you’ll be in for.

Here’s the official synopsis:

When the man-eating giants called Titans first appeared, humans retreated behind massive walls. After a hundred years of safety, a colossal-sized Titan smashes through the defenses, unleashing a flood of giants and carnage in the streets. Eren Jaeger watches helplessly as one of the creatures devours his mother.

He vows to kill every Titan walking the earth.

Eren and his surviving friends enlist to fight against the insatiable monsters. The future looks bleak, but there’s more to Eren than meets the eye: he may be humanity’s last hope against extinction. From the director of Death Note and High School of the Dead comes the series Anime News Network calls “an intense, visceral, and graphic thrill ride.” The Titans have come to feast. Anything can happen. No one is safe.

And in case you’re already super onboard, FUNimation is selling a collector’s edition Blu-ray and DVD exclusively in its online shop. The special set is scheduled to ship on June 3, 2014

White Collar Canceled? USA Series Reportedly Ending With Six-Episode Final Season

It's the end of an era: White Collar is reportedly coming to an end. According to Deadline , the Matt Bomer/ Tim DeKay USA series will wrap up with a final season of six episodes. Please take a moment and realize what kind of impact losing Bomer's blue eyes from your TV screens will have on your daily life.

Season five of the popular series ended with a cliffhanger that saw Neal Caffery (Bomer) abducted. Deadline reports the talks between USA and Fox TV Studios went between a full season and a miniseries/movie to wrap up the show, with a six-episode season likely being the agreement.

A rep for USA could not confirm Deadline's report.

White Collar also stars Tiffani Thiessen, Willie Garson, Hilarie Burton, Sharif Atkins and Marsha Thomason.

A proper ending for White Collar fits the mold for USA. The network allowed for proper sendoffs for Monk, Burn Notice and In Plain Sight, with Psych's series finale right around the corner. The network just launched new comedy Sirens from Denis Leary, reality show Chrisley Knows Best and has half-hour comedy Playing House from Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair in the wings for April.

Bomer has taken on big screen roles as of late with Magic Mike, Winter's Tale and Space Station 76. Next up: HBO's The Normal Heart opposite Mark Ruffalo and Julia Roberts.

http://www.nerdist.com/2014/03/tucker-dale-vs-evil-sequel-in-development/

TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL Sequel in Development

Most instances of horror and comedy meshing as film genres come about when a horror movie is so campy, it’s laughable. Check most releases from The Asylum, for example. However, every once in awhile, there’s a Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, and Tucker & Dale vs. Evil that pull off comedic horror in a non-ironic, very enjoyable way.

That’s why it’s great to hear Tucker & Dale vs. Evil‘s Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine are developing a sequel. While at the HorrorHound weekend convention, Tudyk and Labine announced that work is underway on a follow-up, despite initial reports that there wasn’t going to be one.

Let’s hope it won’t be too long before there’s more hilarious mistaken-identity chainsaw-ridden carnage on the way from Tucker & Dale vs. Evil 2.

Tall Men and Silver Balls: the First PHANTASM V Teaser

It’s been 16 years since the alien and necrotic Tall Man darkened cinema’s doorways with his arched eyebrow and persistent bellows of “Booooooooy!” But you can’t keep a good horror monster man down, and neither, it seems, can you keep a filmmaker from revisiting his most famous creation. Yes, friend, it’s finally happened: Phantasm V: Ravager is on its way, and below is the very first teaser for the long-awaited(?) fifth installment in the popular offbeat franchise. Have a gander!

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1wOobOGa4w" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1wOobOGa4w</a>

Details on the film are pretty sketchy at the moment (the film’s not even listed on IMDb), but it appears from the movie’s official website that writer-director Don Coscarelli is back at the helm of the film series that began 35 years ago and will reunite the stars of the original, A. Michael Baldwin, Reggie Bannister, and of course Angus Scrimm as the immortal Tall Man. It looks to be a lot Grindhouseier than the last several, which suits us just fine, seeing as everyone in the movie is not as spry as they used to be.

Coscarelli, you may also remember, directed Bubba Ho-Tep and John Dies at the End, two of the best cult horror films of the last decade, so we’re pretty confident this could be something cool.

http://xfinity.comcast.net/articles/entertainment/20140330/EU--Britain-Obit-Kate.O_Mara/

Former 'Dynasty' star Kate O'Mara dies at age 74

LONDON (AP) — British actress Kate O'Mara, best known for her role in the 1980s soap opera "Dynasty," died Sunday at the age of 74, her agent said.

Phil Belfield said O'Mara died in a nursing home in southern England after a short illness.

The actress, who began her television career in the 1960s, became a household name for playing Cassandra "Caress" Morrell, sister to Joan Collins' Alexis Colby, in "Dynasty."

In Britain she is often remembered for her role in "Triangle" — a soap opera set aboard a North Sea ferry that is often cited as the worst piece of British television.

She also appeared in the original run of British series "Doctor Who" and BBC drama "Howards' Way." In the 1990s she starred in the comedy show "Absolutely Fabulous" with Joanna Lumley.

More recently she appeared in a 2012 stage adaptation of Agatha Christie's "Death on the Nile."

She is survived by her sister, actress Belinda Carroll.

http://www.doctorwho.tv/whats-new/article/ben-miller-to-guest-star-in-new-series-of-doctor-who

Ben Miller to guest star in new series of Doctor Who

Ben Miller is set to guest star opposite Peter Capaldi when the new series of Doctor Who returns this autumn.

Commenting on his role, Ben Miller said: "As a committed Whovian I cannot believe my luck in joining the Twelfth Doctor for one of his inaugural adventures. My only worry is that they'll make me leave the set when I'm not filming."

Miller achieved fame as half of comedy duo Armstrong and Miller before success in dramas, including Primeval and more recently, as DI Richard Poole, the central character in the first two series of the BBC’s Death in Paradise.

Miller’s partner in comedy, Alexander Armstrong, appeared in Doctor Who’s 2011 Christmas Special, playing Reg Arwell, but it’s Miller’s first time on the show and he’ll be starring in an episode written by Mark Gatiss.

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, added: “Mark Gatiss has written us a storming villain for his new episode, and with Capaldi in the TARDIS, we knew we needed somebody special to send everybody behind the sofa. And quite frankly, it's about time Ben Miller was in Doctor Who!”

Other familiar faces confirmed to join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the new series, which will tramsit later this year, include Tom Riley and Keeley Hawes.

GAME OF THRONES’ D.B. Weiss & David Benioff Will Make DIRTY WHITE BOYS

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the helmers behind the HBO adaptation of Game of Thrones, apparently don’t have enough going on, what with a gangbuster season four premiere for the George R.R. Martin novel-turned-TV series less than a week ago and a cramazing (that’s crazy-amazing) two-season renewal order. Things are a bit slow for them… Which is probably why they’ve decided to tackle yet another project — this time a feature film they will write, direct, and produce as a duo called Dirty White Boys. And no, it’s not a biography of the men of House Lannister. In fact, it’s not about Westeros at all! Say what?

The 1995 Stephen Hunter novel is about three violent escaped convicts and the lawman attempting to track them down. Hunter’s work is no stranger to Hollywood: one of his other novels, Point Of Impact, later became the Mark Wahlberg flick Shooter.

According to Weiss, it was the characters that drew them to the project. “The characters are so well drawn, really charismatic and awful people, so flawed,” he stated. The novel’s first line, in particular, drew them in and made it impossible to put the book down.

(That line is the following, for those curious enough. But be warned — there’s racism ahoy! “Three men at McAlester State Penitentiary had larger penises than Lamar Pye, but all were black and therefore, by Lamar’s own figuring, hardly human at all.” Yiiiiikes.)

And it was that very line that forced their hand. “We’re sitting around bullshitting and we started talking about lines we were jealous of before it came around to the familiar topic of greatest opening lines in novels,” explained Benioff. “Our friend Scott Frank brought up the opening line of Dirty White Boys…. I’d never heard of [it] before… and it made me go out and buy the book… and just fell in love with it.”

The story focuses on Lamar Pyle, an Alpha Male leader of a trio of escaped convicts being tracked by Bud Pewtie, a state trooper, and the very bloody tear they go on across the southern United States (Sounds they they’d do well as players in the fantasy fantasy league).

Don’t get too excited just yet, though: Benioff and Weiss are deep into the post-production stages of Game of Thrones‘ 4th season and that — in addition to the two-season renewal — doesn’t leave room for a definitive timeline on the film. Weis and Benioff explained that the film is a project they’ll get to when they can.

The First Trailer For GIRL MEETS WORLD Is Here!

We’re excited for the new Boy Meets World sequel series, Girl Meets World. You’re excited for the new Boy Meets World sequel series, Girl Meets World. We’re all excited for the new Boy Meets World sequel series, Girl Meets World. Admit it, the thought of reuniting with a now all-grown-up Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence as they try and teach their daughter Riley the ways of the world makes you tingle just a little bit. Here’s the first trailer for the new series:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egGVgMiGdBY" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egGVgMiGdBY</a>

Okay, that’s pretty much exactly what we were hoping for. A little charm, a little sass, all heart.

The series comes from original creator Michael Jacobs and, besides Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel as Cory and Topanga, will also feature the return of fan favorites William Daniels and Rider Strong as, respectively, George Feeny and Shawn Hunter in later episodes.

Girls Meets World premieres later this year on Disney Channel.

Yup, yup, yup, that’s it right there. That’s the Bauer we want. Intense, driven, man of principle, I don’t think people realized how much they missed the world’s top counter-terrorist agent. The line where Jack is told he is now the thing he’s sworn to protect the world against, a terrorist, it just gives you chills and should make for one hell of a ride.

24: Live Another Day premieres May 5th on FOX.

‘Of Muppets & Men’, A Wonderfully Insightful 1980 Documentary About ‘The Muppet Show’

Of Muppets And Men is a wonderful 52-minute documentary about the people who made The Muppet Show happen. Shot in 1980 during the show’s fifth season, the documentary took a look at the people who made the muppets, voiced the muppets, performed with the muppets and of course, the incredible vision of the late great muppet-master Jim Henson.


The documentary features appearances by Muppet Show performers Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Dave Goelz, Louise Gold, Richard Hunt, Jerry Nelson, Kathryn Mullen, Steve Whitmire, and Brian Muehl; writers Jerry Juhl, Don Hinkley, David Odell, and Chris Langham; director Peter Harris; producer David Lazer; and guest stars Roger Moore and Raquel Welch

Paul Walker's Brothers to Fill In for Late Actor in Some Fast & Furious 7 Scenes

Caleb and Cody Walker are joining the Fast & Furious family.

According to a message posted on the Fast & Furious 7 Facebook page , Paul Walker 's two brothers will fill in for the late actor in order to complete some of his unfinished scenes in the upcoming flick, which has finally resumed filming after Paul's death last year .

"The Fast & Furious saga is about family," reads the post. "The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans."

"Paul had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of his action for Fast & Furious 7, and it's among the strongest work of his career," it goes on. "We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul's brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our Fast family. Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too."

The message goes on to say that the franchise's seventh installment, and Paul's last, is "the most important we've ever done together. It will allow the character of Brian O'Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role."

"We wanted to take a moment to speak to our fans directly and thank you for the love and support you always show us as we resume our work," the message concludes.

Fast & Furious 7 resumed filming just last month. The film is set to hit theaters Apr. 15, 2015.

Star Trek Writers To Reboot Flash Gordon
Gordon's alive!

What do you mean, "Flash Gordon approaching?" Well, after some years of varying development hells, and a short-lived Sci-Fi Channel TV series in 2008, it looks as if the pulp space hero is in the initial stages of a journey back to the big screen. Their source is unclear, but the impetuous boys (and girl) at Film Divider believe that JD Payne and Patrick McKay, currently at work on the third modern Star Trek film, are also writing an ambitious new Flash Gordon adventure.

Flash Gordon made his debut in newspaper comic strips drawn by Alex Raymond in the 1930s, and was initially conceived explicitly as competition for the then very popular Buck Rogers. Gordon was a polo-playing Yale graduate who, with companions Dale Arden and Dr Hans Zarkov, initially headed into space to find the source of some meteors bombarding Earth. Their first encounter with Ming The Merciless - the alien gitface behind the meteors - would not be their last, and their continuing adventures on the planet Mongo would see them also encountering hawk-man Prince Vultan and the rulers of various jungle, ice and undersea kingdoms.

Gordon was immediately picked up for three Saturday morning film serials starring Buster Crabbe (also briefly Buck Rogers and Tarzan) between 1936 and 1940. Slightly more recently and perhaps most famously, of course, there was the 1980 movie camp-fest with the mad Queen soundtrack, starring Sam J. Jones as Gordon, Max Von Sydow as Ming, and a particularly mental Brian Blessed as Vultan.

Payne and McKay's connection to JJ Abrams' Bad Robot includes adapting the novel Boilerplate as well as their work on the Star Trek threequel, but whether Flash has a home there, or elsewhere, or is merely a spec script the pair have developed on their own is unclear at the moment. They also have action scripts Goliath and Deadliest Warrior floating in development at, respectively, Temple Hill and Paramount.

Their take on Flash Gordon is apparently (predictably) to rescue him from his current reputation as something stupid but much loved (see Sam Jones' recent turn in Ted), and restore his reputation as a more serious adventurer. He is, after all, the metallist man alive, come to save us all, with his constant thrash. Oh no, wait, that's Thrash Gordon. That's someone else.

The world didn't seem quite ready for John Carter. Are we up for a new Flash Gordon?
