Michael Bay Occult Crime Drama Gets Pilot Order from A&E

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Michael Bay is going into business with A&E.

The network has placed a cast-contingent pilot order for a crime drama with occult themes, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

The pilot, tentatively titled “Occult,” centers on an FBI agent who returns from administrative leave after going off the deep end while investigating his wife’s disappearance.

Back on duty, he’s teamed with another agent with her own complicated backstory who has a background in the occult. Together, they solve crimes for the newly formed occult task force.

Bay will produce, along with his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. James Wong (“American Horror Story: Asylum,” “The Event“) is writing the pilot.

“Transformers” director Bay, who’s currently working on a big-screen adaptation of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” also has a pirate series, “Black Sails,” premiering on Starz, likely in 2014.

Michael Bay And Jonathan Liebesman's NINJA TURTLES To Start Filming This April

The fact that the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is taking some huge liberties with how the characters have been portrayed in past comic books, movies and TV shows has upset a lot of fans, but work is moving ahead on the project regardless. It's safe to assume that Michael Bay (Transformers) and Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans) more than likely haven't reverted back to the original title, but Production Weekly ARE usually extremely reliable when it comes to reports on when and where shoots such as this one will take place. With a release date set for May 16th, 2014, expect some solid casting news on this one very soon.

Megan Fox To Play 'April O'Neil' In Michael Bay Produced NINJA TURTLES




Despite a very public falling out which led to Megan Fox being replaced in the third instalment of Michael Bay's Transformers franchise, the director has just revealed via his official website that they will re-team for the Jonathan Liebesman helmed Ninja Turtles. As you can see from the extremely brief message below, he refers to the movie with the TMNT acronym, although it's unclear whether this means that the title will once again be changed (unlikely as it has previously been reported that the Ninja Turtles will neither be teenagers or mutants in the planned reboot). She'll play "intrepid reporter and good-natured friend to reptiles" April O'Neil and beat Jane Levy, Anna Kendrick and Elizabeth Olsen to the role. It is also being reported by various sources that the studio are looking for four unknowns to play the motion-capture turtles.


TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!

Megan Fox To Play 'April O'Neil' In Michael Bay Produced NINJA TURTLES


Why not Christina Hendricks? She has star-power and probably looks better as a redhead than Fox.

I enjoyed the 1990 version. I believe it still holds the record as the highest-grossing independent film of all time, with $133+ million in domestic box office. I hope they keep this one a bit darker like the original. Jim Henson was reportedly a bit pissed off with the amount of violence and language that the final cut contained.

If they're using motion-capture technology in the new film, maybe they can scale down the turtles closer to the 3-4 ft. height as they were portrayed in the comics and cartoon, thus staying truer to the comic's roots and satisfying nerds like me.

Just did a quick search.
Looks like this film will also feature Krang - in line with the alien theme.

OCCULT: New A&E Supernatural Pilot

Nature abhors a vacuum and apparently television can't handle not having a series on the air in which characters are investigating the supernatural. Whether it's The Night Stalker, The X-Files or Fringe, there always seems to be this type of show, and now A&E has found the leads for its new pilot, Occult. Reports Deadline.com, "Josh Lucas and Lynn Collins have been set as the leads of A&E‘s drama pilot Occult, produced by Transformers helmer Michael Bay and written by veteran genre writer, The X-Files alum James Wong. With Lucas and Collins on board, the project, originally picked up in September as cast-contingent, is going into production. Occult, which draws parallels to X-Files and Fringe, centers on Dolan (Lucas), an FBI agent who returns from administrative leave after going off the deep end while investigating his wife’s disappearance. Eager to be back on the job, he is paired with Noa Blair (Collins), an agent with her own complicated backstory who specializes in the occult. Together, they will solve cases for the newly formed occult crimes task force." Collins portrayed Dejah Thoris in last year's John Carter.
