Scarlett Johansson Sci-Fi Flick Lucy to Have Largest Budget for Studio to Date

 Director Luc Besson's newest endeavor will be the most expensive film ever for studio Europacorp. Besson, who brought us action masterpieces Taken and Leon will be developing Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson (The Avengers), which follows a drug mule who develops telekinesis, premonition, and a lack of regard for pain tolerance when the substance she carries begins to absorb into her bloodstream.

Christophe Lambert, CEO for Europacorp, stated that Lucy would have "the highest budget in the history of EuropaCorp… Luc Besson has never put so many special effects in a movie". No figures for the film have been released.

Morgan Freeman (The Dark Knight Rises) will also be joining Johansson as a neurology professor who assists Johansson's character throughout the film.

Guillermo Del Toro Says THE HULK TV Show Is Inactive; Offers Up Update on HELLBOY 3

On The Hulk Show:


"Right now, all I know is we've been in a holding pattern for the last eight months. All The say is we're waiting on a writer, but it's been inactive. It's still there as far as I know, but there's been no action on it."


On Hellboy 3:


"Finlay all the culprits have agreed to try. It's very hard to find who will finance it. The Biggest chapter in the three movies is Hellboy becomes The Beast Of The Apocalypse. So we have been inquiring, but if you have a rich uncle that has 130-150 million dollars...."(laughs)

HELLBOY 3 Is “Very Unlikely” Says Guillermo del Toro

Recently with all the press for Pacific Rim, there's been talks about Hellboy 3 due to the fact the director and star of the Hellboy series and the director and a star in Pacific Rim. Recently Guillermo del Toro did an interview with Collider in which he discussed Hellboy 3. Here is the video of what he said about Hellboy 3 and below are quotes from the video in case you're on a phone and can't watch it.

“It’s very unlikely it’ll happen because you need things to converge so strongly. [Producer] Larry Gordon, Universal, the rights, Ron [Perlman’s] and mine’s availability, [comic creator] Mike [Mingola’s] blessing; we have pieces of that, but we don’t have all of that. You need so many things to confluence and then you need about $150 million.”

When asked if he would do a Hellboy 3 in the form of comics or a graphic novel in a way how Dredd 2 is, del Toro had this to say:

“I talked to Mike about making it a comic and Mike said very clearly, ‘Hellboy the movies is yours, Hellboy the comics is mine; I don’t wanna confuse them.’ He has been very clear about not bringing any mythology we did in the movies into the comics, like Kroenen being a mechanical clockwork zombie Nazi, or The Samaritan, which is not called ‘The Samaritan’ in the comics, or Big Baby, or Abe Sapien being like the character he is in the movies, which is different. In the comics he’s a hard-ass, Abe Sapien is really a tough guy, and in the movie he’s like this sensitive, mind reading fish man. So [Mike] is very careful, no love story between Liz and Hellboy, so on and so forth."

del Toro finally said that he does have a story ready and prepared for Hellboy 3 and that it would be a completely different direction than the first 2 installments:

“The way Hellboy 1 and Hellboy 2 are very different from each other, Hellboy 3 is different enough from the other two that it wouldn’t feel like the same universe in scale. He does become the beast of the apocalypse. But seeing the apocalypse is getting more and more—the bar is raised higher and higher every year; mass destruction is becoming the sport of the summer.”

It is important to note that Mike Mingola has said he would love to do a Hellboy 3, Ron Perlman has said he wants to do a Hellboy 3 and currently the film rights to Hellboy are with Universal but Legendary Studio's President has said he is interested in a third Hellboy and one of the places Legendary Studios is looking to move into is Universal. It's possible but it's all really a matter of how great Pacific Rim is. At the end of the day, I still do have hope that this movie will be made and I do think it will because everybody wants to do it, it's all really a matter of getting everybody in the same room and agreeing to make it.

Fox Trying Another League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen
But on TV this time...

Everyone hear that? It’s Alan Moore, digging a grave, complete with special bar he can grasp to turn around on. Because he’s just heard the news that someone wants to try adapting The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen again.

You might recall that 20th Century Fox tried this trick back in 2003, with Sean Connery leading off an eclectic cast in a film that did not, it’s fair to say, prove to be much of a success at the box office or with fans. The horror stories about its production are legendary and it singularly failed to launch a new franchise, while also driving Connery into retirement.

Undeterred, Fox is instead turning to its TV division to try again with a pilot developed by Green Lantern’s scribe Michael Green.

The show will get a chance to prove itself to executives, with a new take on the team featuring Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll (and Mr. Hyde), Mina Harker, Dorian Gray and more.

No doubt the executives will be eyeing Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. to see whether it’s the right time to launch such a show, though the success of Smallville and the more recent Arrow should bolster its chances of getting on the air. So, can the League’s curse be voided on the small screen? We may find out next year…

TRON Sequel Closer To Becoming A Reality! Disney Hires Jesse Wigutow To Rewrite The Script

Let's pretend I had a budget of around $175 million to go make a movie. Then that movie went on to generate just over $400 million at the worldwide box office. So with that bit of info, would you say I had a hit movie or a flop? You have a hit movie of course... unless you're Disney's Tron: Legacy which for some odd reason has the word "flop" pinned to it far too often. Sure the film wasn't the monster hit that Disney was hoping for and outside of some neat special effects, a groovy soundtrack from Daft Punk, the story was a complete mess. But! It made money. And since it made some serious dough it shouldn't be a big surprise that Disney has taken another step forward in making Tron 3 a reality.

The Hollywood Reporter reports (lol), that the Mouse House has hired Jesse Wigutow ("Peter and the Starcatchers") to rewrite a script originally penned by David DiGilio ("Eight Below").

Not for nothing, but when your biggest weakness was a shaky script, maybe you shouldn't hire two guys that have as many writing credits as I have parking tickets (7 total). Realize your weakness and bring in a seasoned scribe to at least give you a base to work with, right? Either Disney knows something I don't know or they think they can wow audiences again with neon light cycles. Too bad we've already seen that one trick pony.

Besides that, Joseph Kosinki, will be back to direct Tron 3. He helmed 2010's Tron: Legacy which starred Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and Jeff Bridges.

As of right now little is known about the plot of the third Tron movie, but back in April of 2011 Joseph Kosinki did share his plans at that time, of course a lot could've changed in over a year.

"I think we will pick with where Tron: Legacy left off with Quorra (Olivia Wilde) in the real world and what does that mean and the possibilities it opens up for the next chapter. It’s that relationship between the two of them that’s the next step."

He also envisioned Cillian Murphy having a much bigger role in the film as opposed to his brief cameo as Ed Dillinger's son. Which you can view in the video above.

Dillinger was a really important part of the first film and felt like an easy way to continue that storyline and thread to have his son in the new movie. That way you have people ask those questions of what the Dillinger legacy is in the world of TRON. We didn’t want to ignore it completely and it leaves a really nice springboard for some intertwining development for the next film."

'TRON 3' And 'THE BLACK HOLE' Update From Joseph Kosinski

"Oblivion" director Joseph Kosinski spoke with Entertainment Tonight for the upcoming release of his Tom Cruise lead sci-fi feature on home video. However, ET has cut a portion of that interview to focus on talks of Kosinski's next two projects, "Black Hole" and "Tron 3." Jon Spaights is writing "Black Hole" while Jesse Wigutow is working on the script for the third Tron outing. Kosinski says that "Tron 3" will pick up right where the sequel left off with Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) and Quorra (Olivia Wilde) returning to the real world. "The Black Hole" will be a reboot of the 1979 science fiction film which returning astronauts find a black hole on their way back to Earth. A bit of trivia, famed comic book artist Jack Kirby drew an adaptation of the film for the comic strip Walt Disney's "Treasury of Classic Tales."

IDW Announces INTO DARKNESS Comic Book Tie-In Miniseries STAR TREK


This October, STAR TREK: KHAN will show intrepid readers just how the master villain of Star Trek Into Darkness became the intergalactic menace seen in the blockbuster film. Over six thrilling issues, Khan's secrets will be unlocked and the origin of evil will finally be uncovered.

Helmed by the veteran Star Trek team of writer Mike Johnson and artist Claudia Balboni, the series will be overseen by the film's screenwriter, Roberto Orci.

"We're traveling back in time to show Khan's rise to power and give fans their first look at the legendary Eugenics Wars," says Johnson. "As the series unfolds we will see the events that led to Khan leaving Earth aboard the Botany Bay, and then jump forward to witness his awakening in the future by Admiral Marcus."

"Much like the way the Star Trek: Countdown comic book and our follow-up Nero miniseries helped flesh out that character after the first Star Trek movie," said Chris Ryall, IDW's Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief, "Khan will add dimension and depth to this new iteration one of the most classic villains in all of Star Trek lore."

In addition to KHAN, the only place to continue the epic story of J.J Abrams' Star Trek film universe is in the pages of IDW Publishing's ongoing Star Trek series. Also available is the collection of STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS, the exclusive prequel mini-series leading into the hit film.

If that weren't enough, the full run of the STAR TREK ongoing series has been filled with "Easter eggs" leading in to the new film! Fans without possession of a secret-unlocking tricorder are urged to pore over the first twenty issues of Star Trek.

As Johnson says, "Now that Into Darkness is in theaters, fans reading the ongoing series from issue #1 will pick up on details, both specific and thematic, that set up the movie and the stories that follow it."

Johnny Depp Looks Set To Return For ALICE IN WONDERLAND Sequel

News has broken today of Johnny Depp's multi-year "first look" deal at Disney to develop film projects he can produce there. However, according to Deadline's sources, that isn't exactly news as the deal was closed months ago and is only just now being openly talked about. What IS news is the fact that the star - who has recently struggled to find an audience with both Dark Shadows and The Lone Ranger - is in final negotiations to return as 'The Mad Hatter' in the sequel to box office smash, Alice in Wonderland. The follow-up is set to be directed by The Muppets helmer James Bobin and Depp is of course already confirmed as reprising the role of 'Captain Jack Sparrow' in Pirates of the Caribbean 5.

ORPHAN BLACK: Cloning Drama Coming to BBC America in March
 
On March 30th, BBC America will debut a drama about cloning that focuses on a woman who discovers that she's been cloned, which in turn leads into a global-wide conspiracy in which virtually anyone could have a clone of themselves walking around.

What follows is the official descrpition of the show:

Sarah has always lived the life of an orphan outsider. But a clone is never alone.
 
Sarah hopes that cleaning out a dead woman?s bank account will solve all her problems. Instead, her problems multiply ? and so does she. Experience a whole new side of BBC AMERICA with the channel?s next original scripted series, ?Orphan Black,? the exciting and ambitious new addition to the Supernatural Saturday programming block. ?Orphan Black? features rising star Tatiana Maslany ?(Cas & Dylan,? ?Picture Day?) in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones? but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy and must race to find answers about who she is and how many others there are just like her. Orphan Black premieres Saturday, March 30, 9:00pm ET/PT, as part of BBC AMERICA?s Supernatural Saturday.
This suspenseful, sexy thriller also stars Jordan Gavaris (?Degrassi?), Dylan Bruce (?As The World Turns?) and Maria Doyle Kennedy (?Downton Abbey?). Orphan Black is executive produced by Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier (?Being Erica?), Graeme Manson (?Flashpoint?), and John Fawcett (?Spartacus?). The drama is co-created by Manson and Fawcett, with Manson also serving as writer and Fawcett as director.

'Orphan Black' creators tease season 2: 'Expect to hit the ground running'

First, the bad news: You will have to wait until next spring to see new episodes of Orphan Black. (Hey, told you it was bad.) But now, the good news: The creators of BBC America’s clone-conspiracy drama, Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, are willing to offer a few glimpses into season 2. Before they appear at Comic-Con on Friday with at least one version of star Tatiana Maslany (who plays single mom Sarah Manning, not to mention several other clones) to answer your burning questions and screen some never-before-seen season 1 footage, read what the pair had to say about the new episodes.

On the themes of season 2
 MANSON: We definitely will be continuing looking at bonds and themes of motherhood in all its guises that we show — Mrs. S. (Maria Doyle Kennedy) and the foster motherhood, Sarah and Kira (Sklyer Wexler) — as well as testing and stretching the bond between our three main women (played by Maslany), Cosima, Sarah and Allison… Sarah’s going to be on the run in season 2.
 FAWCETT: She’s really freaked out because she’s got bad guys after her.

On where the action picks up in the season 2 premiere
 MANSON: You can pretty much expect to hit the ground running.
 FAWCETT: There’s not a lot of time wasted in terms of where the season begins. Kira is gone and Sarah is panicking, and the season begins maybe two hours after the end of season 1, and launches like a rocket right from there.

On when fans will get answers to questions from the end of season 1, such as Kira’s special healing ability and Cosima’s sickness
 FAWCETT: These are obviously questions that everybody is going to want answers to. We’re going to get answers — I’m not sure how quickly we’re going to get answers. Part of the joy of the show is letting things mysteriously unfold. The fact that people don’t really know where the show is headed? We like that.
 MANSON: It’s safe to say we are interested in unwrapping the mystery of Kira and Sarah’s motherhood.

On the likelihood of meeting more clones this season
 MANSON: We’re really interested in that. We’re also very respectful of the idea of it. We want to introduce characters — not a lot of red-shirt clones. It’s safe to say we want to.
 FAWCETT: We’re a clone show. That’s what we are and that’s what got Graeme and I so excited about this concept in the first place. I think it’s safe to say that through the course of this series we’re going to meet more clones.

On the role that proclone Rachel will play in season 2
 FAWCETT: Before getting into any other further clones, we’ve got this new clone that we really don’t know very well, and Rachel is going to figure in pretty strongly in season 2. She’s not just a bad guy. She’s got a lot of layers to her and has a very, very interesting backstory.

On some fans speculating that Helena is somehow still alive despite being shot by Sarah
 FAWCETT: I don’t know, I think she was pretty dead. She looked pretty dead to me.
 MANSON: Shot in the heart, but, you know, she’s kind of a bad penny. Who knows?

First Still From ENDER'S GAME Featuring Harrison Ford And Asa Butterfield


In the near future, a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite.

Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distiguising himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military's next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he's trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.

Ender's Game is set to hit theaters November 1st, 2013.

Exclusive: First Look At The Zero Theorem
Welcome to Terry Gilliam's new world

Terry Gilliam's new not-quite-sci-fi The Zero Theorem is promising to take him - and us - back to the giddily satirical bureaucratic heights of 1985 classic Brazil. Empire is proud to debut these new shots from the film, letting you into the colourfully dystopian playground Gilliam has created.

Christoph Waltz, billiard-smooth of head, if not mannerism, is the film's ever-present protagonist. As Qohen Leth, a programmer for "entity-crunching" corporation ManCom, he is, Gilliam explains, "waiting for a phone call that will give meaning to his life". Like Brazil's Sam Lowry, Leth is befuddled by the info-dump world he lives in and the Heath Robinson tech tangle that surrounds him. Unlike Lowry, he's something of a hacker genius whose attempts to solve the "Zero Theorem" could unlock the key to life's meaning.

The story, the first by American college professor Pat Rushin, was partly inspired by Gilliam's own work, so the parallels with Brazil are not accidental. It's been in the ether since 1992, but finally found its way to the director via Dean 'son of Richard' Zanuck. "It's not really sci-fi," Gilliam stressed when we visited him on the film's Bucharest shoot. "It's like Brazil, which also isn't really sci-fi." Whatever it is, we can't wait to see it.

The Zero Theorem will be out in 2014.

James McAvoy Is Victor Von Frankenstein
For Paul McGuigan's new take on the tale

With Frankenstein’s monster set to challenge vampires, werewolves and other supernatural creatures for cinematic dominance, Fox has slowly been putting together the pieces for its own take on the tale of Victor Von Frankenstein and his most famous creation. The studio – and director Paul McGuigan – have turned to a man who has become used to playing a man of science, as X-Men: First Class’s James McAvoy has won the role of Victor.

Working from Max Landis’ script, McGuigan’s film will blend Mary Shelley’s original tale with an expanded, different look at the Franken-universe told through the eyes of Igor (Daniel Radcliffe).

Though Fox had wanted this one rolling before competing Franken-movies such as I, Frankenstein could appear, the San Diego Comic-Con panel for the Aaron Eckhart film suggests that McGuigan and co have lost this particular race. That said, with an intriguing Landis script and two very talented types in the lead roles, we must admit that this new version of Frankie goes to Hollywood has pinged our interest-o-meter to a much higher level.

McAvoy beat out the likes of Toby Kebbell and Jack Houston for the role, and should bring the requisite depth to the troubled scientist. He’ll also be seen in Filth (out September 27) and double bill drama The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Him and Her, which does not yet have a release date. And let’s not forget X-Men: Days Of Future Past, due to land here on May 22 next year.

HERCULES Is No Match For The GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY; Remake Gets New Release Date

Box Office Mojo has revealed that Hercules has moved from August 8th, 2014 to July 25th, 2014. It's original release date meant that it opened just a week after Guardians of the Galaxy. A foolish decision, especially as Marvel Studios' movies have never really had any trouble with holding on to the top spot both with their most obscure releases AND against some pretty serious box office competition. However, the studio clearly aren't that concerned as this change of release date means that it comes out just seven days after X-Men: Days of Future Past and the final instalment in The Hobbit trilogy! Directed by X-Men: The Last Stand's Brett Ratner and starring Dwayne Johnson, the screenplay for Hercules was adapted by relative newcomer Ryan Condal from Radical Studio's graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars. Below is a description of that story.


Fourteen hundred years ago, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labors and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and woman never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. It is time for this bunch of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen when they must train an army to become as ruthless and blood thirsty as their reputation has become.

Ben Stiller On The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty
Has he delivered this year's Life Of Pi?

 the latest issue of Empire, we have an exclusive first look at The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. Our editor, Mark Dinning, spoke to director and star Ben Stiller about the film, and here's what he discovered...

When Ben Stiller ran into Russell Crowe on the Tarmac at Reykjavik airport, the Gladiator star had five words for him: “You gotta dominate the weather.”

Stiller was the latest in a succession of big names to have descended on Iceland — Tom Cruise had recently been in town with Oblivion and Crowe was just leaving, with Darren Aronofsky’s Noah in the can. In fact, those previous projects had seen Stiller’s initial shooting slot postponed by a few months, the country’s limited crews already stretched to breaking point by this A-list invasion.

But if the schedule was tight and the weather borderline suicidal, Stiller remained unfazed. “People talk about location issues, but I’ve shot movies in New York,” laughs the 47-year-old. “You’ll be trying to do a quiet, intimate scene on Sixth Avenue and all you’ll get is people driving by, shouting, ‘Hey, Focker!’”

That may sound funny, but perception is a serious business. Try, for instance, making an important point on Twitter when you’re the only star in Hollywood with three billion-dollar franchises (the Night At The Museums, Madagascars and Fockers of above) and you will find yourself getting short shrift. “I’ll try to alert people to some genuine injustice in the world that I think they should be aware of,” says Stiller with a wry shrug, “and they’ll be like, ‘Yeah, yeah… just be funny!’”

The comedy label is one that Ben Stiller never particularly set out to court. But, given his movies in the genre have grossed $5 billion, it’s not one the studios are particularly keen he sheds, either. Ever since There’s Something About Mary sent him stratospheric, though, he has had a plan in motion, a dream of making movies of every size and every genre, and not necessarily any more where he jizzes in someone’s hair. “I’ve always wanted to direct different kinds of movies,” he says. “I just haven’t really done it.”

With The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, it is fair to say that Stiller has achieved his dream and then some. Mitty is his adaptation of the short story by James Thurber, famously turned into the 1947 musical starring Danny Kaye. For the uninitiated, our hero is a downtrodden magazine worker (no comment), who escapes the pain of his daily grind (no comment) with vivid fantasies (hello, Kelly Brook!) but not of that kind (with sincere apologies to Kelly Brook).

In Stiller’s incarnation, these fantasies posit him as everything from a Bourne-like action hero to a sexy mountaineer to a Benjamin Button-style Mini-Me. It is, in essence, around ten movies in one. “What I learned as I was editing the movie is that people love the fantasy sequences but they also get invested in the real-life aspects of the movie too. They want to enjoy the fantasies, and for them to be fun and funny, but there’s also this natural desire for the story to go forward. A little goes a long way.”

Stiller was actually asked to star in a new adaptation of Mitty back in 2005. He was right to wait. His new iteration makes smart changes to the source. Where Kaye’s saw Mitty fantasising about escaping a henpecking wife, this script, by Steve Conrad, sees him do so in pursuit of the object of his affection, played by Kristen Wiig. “This version is more different than similar to the original,” says Stiller. “That’s what appealed. The 2005 version was just an updated version that wasn’t a musical. All it was ever going to be was ‘not as good as the original’. We were aiming for something indefinable, a movie that left you with a feeling at the end. I’ve never made a movie like that, and it’s a really hard target to hit. It’s hard to put into words.”

Hard to put into words? Here are two for you right now: fucking magical.

Last month we were lucky enough to see 13 minutes at a cinema exhibitors’ presentation in Barcelona. The footage was an extended sequence involving a fantasy Wiig singing a stunning a cappella version of David Bowie’s Major Tom, inspiring Stiller’s Mitty to jump in a helicopter and then back out of it and into the ocean, for a close encounter with a great white shark. The shark was stunningly realised, but it was the marriage of movie and music that really moved.

Fox chief Jim Gianopulos has drawn parallels between Stiller’s movie and Life Of Pi. Stiller claims he pitched it to Gianopulos more as a “sort of” Forrest Gump. From what we saw, we’d also put forward a touch of The Apartment (for its bittersweet tone as much as for having Shirley MacLaine in it) and It’s A Wonderful Life. It really does look that good.

For all his success as a director — Zoolander and Tropic Thunder especially — Stiller has battled a reputation for drifting over budget (the latter’s “You’re three weeks behind and you’ve been shooting for five days” is an in-joke at his own expense) and an industry that likes to keep people in their boxes. But, on this evidence, this could be the movie that will put all of that behind him for good. His fantasy may be close to becoming a reality.

“It’s not like I’m trying to prove anything, or force something down people’s throats,” he says. “I’m just trying to do different things, to make the kind of movie I’m interested in making. The kind of movie I’d like to go and see.”

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty is out on December 26.

CBS Gives Stephen King's UNDER THE DOME A June 2013 Air Date

CBS has today announced its summer schedule, including the premiere date of the highly anticipated adaptation of Stephen King's Under the Dome. Last year, we learned that the network had ordered a 13-episode season and that both Brian K. Vaughan and Niels Arden Oplev were attached along with Neal Baer (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) as showrunner. It will make its debut on Monday, June 24 in the 10PM slot. At this point, it's unclear whether this will be a 13-episode adaptation of the lengthy novel or simply just be based on it.

CBS Renews ‘Under the Dome’ for Season 2

CBS has renewed its summer hit series “Under the Dome” for a second season, the network announced Monday at the Television Critics Association’s Press Tour in Los Angeles.

The “Dome” will return with 13 new episodes in summer 2014.

Stephen King, who wrote the best-selling novel the show is based on, will write the premiere episode of the second season.

“We’re excited to tell more stories about the mystery of the dome and the secrets in Chester’s Mill, and are thrilled to have the master storyteller himself, Stephen King, tell the first one of next season,” said CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler.

When one reporter asked CBS CEO Les Moonves during the CBS Executive Session if there were too many limitations in making a limited run series and if they’re worried about viewer frustration (how long can they be under a dome?), Moonves had a simple Hollywood answer.

“Why can’t there be an ‘Under the Dome’ for a long period of time? This is television. It’s science fiction…” he laughed.
“‘Under the Dome’ is in a lot of ways a soap opera. It’s like ‘Dallas’ in the future,” he added.

“Under the Dome” airs Mondays at 10/9c on CBS.

‘Beverly Hills Cop’ Pilot: Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold to Reunite


NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) – Billy Rosewood and Axel Foley will get together again.


Judge Reinhold, who played by-the-book law-enforcement officer William “Billy” Rosewood in the “Beverly Hills Cop” movie series, has signed on for a cameo in CBS’s “Beverly Hills Cop” pilot, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.


Eddie Murphy, who’s serving as a producer, will also appear in the pilot, reprising his Axel Foley role.

CBS has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.


Further details on Reinhold’s role in the pilot or how he will fit into the plot were not available.


The “Beverly Hills Cop” pilot, which comes from “The Shield” creator Shawn Ryan, is a continuation of the movie franchise, centered around Foley’s police officer son, who takes down the criminal elements of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.

Sony Television is producing the pilot, which will also star Brandon T. Jackson and Kevin Pollak.

Beverly Hills Cop Back On The Development Beat
Eddie Murphy & co. still want to make the movie

For a long time, the idea of a new Beverly Hills Cop film – either the fourth or a reboot, for those keeping score at home – floated around merely as a rumour. Then word broke that Brett Ratner was aiming to make a PG-13 “revitalisation” of the franchise, which led to a minor uproar, before he walked those comments back hastily. Then there was talk of a TV pilot, but now it would seem Eddie Murphy’s Axel Foley is back on track for the big screen.

It’s been a bit of a whiplash time for the street-wise-cracking Detroit cop, who for a while was destined for the small screen with The Shield’s Shawn Ryan, who cooked up an idea for a show with Murphy that had Brandon T. Jackson as Axel’s son and the elder Foley as a senior police officer overseeing his sprog’s career.

That never made it past the pilot stage, and while Ryan tried to sell it elsewhere, it would appear that the TV idea is now dead in the water. Still, the added heat meants Paramount is once more interested in kicking the film’s development up a gear, with Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol's Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec hired to write a new draft focusing on Murphy.

Whether Jackson’s character will survive the transition remains a mystery, and there’s no director attached right now. We suppose there’s a chance Ratner could come back once he’s finished with Hercules, but nothing has been decided yet. Either way, though, Axel Foley is one tough nut to crack, but an even harder man to kill…

'SUPERNATURAL' Spinoff Receives Greenlight

With the announcement of The CW committing to a backdoor pilot for a spinoff of the Winchester-saga known as "Supernatural," fans are already calling for the show to star Felicia Day's Charlie Bradbury. A spinoff series has been in development for quite some time but the show is rumored to be entering its last days with season 10 thought to be its last hurrah. The backdoor pilot will be written by "Supernatural" supervising producer Andrew Dabb. The only details revealed thus far is that the show will be firmly set in the city of Chicago as opposed to the cross country exploits of the Winchester brothers.

Dylan Bruce Joins The Cast Of Season Two Of ARROW

TV Line has revealed that Dylan Bruce has joined the cast of Arrow for this Fall's highly anticipated second season. The actor is best known for his role in BBC America's Orphan Black, but he will also find the time to guest-star in the CW series as what the site details as, "Laurel's new co-worker Adam Donner, a corn-fed, All-American lawyer who is described as smart and charismatic." He will apparently feature in the first and third episodes, although it's hard to imagine that he won't play an important part of some sort in the series.

Christopher Nolan To Tackle Sci-Fi In His Next Movie; INTERSTELLAR

Memento, The Prestige, Inception. All of these Christopher Nolan helmed movies are as good as (if not better than) his The Dark Knight Trilogy, so you may want to start getting excited about the news that his next project will be Interstellar for Paramount and Warner Bros. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he will direct and produce the Jonathan Nolan penned screenplay which "involves time travel and alternate dimensions in a story that sees a group of explorers travel through a wormhole." It's apparently based on scientific theories developed by a Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist, a gravitational physicist and astrophysicist at Caltech. Nolan is said to be very close to wrapping up the deal, so there is obviously no word on a cast or release date at this point.

GAME OF THRONES' Elyes Gabel Joins Christopher Nolan's INTERSTELLAR

The Wrap report that British actor Elyes Gabel (the unfortunate 'Rakharo' on HBO's Game Of Thrones) has joined the already pretty spectacular cast of Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fi flick.

According to The Wrap, Elyes Gabel has signed on for a role in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar alongside the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine. Like most things with this movie, no details on his exact role are given but the site reckon he's definitely on board despite Paramount, Warner Bros. and a representative for Nolan declining to comment. Gabel appeared most recenly in Welcome To The Punch, and he played that idiot Doctor from World War Z in one of the most unintentionally hilarious scenes in recent memory.

Josh Hartnett And Eva Green To Star In Sam Mendes And John Logan's PENNY DREADFUL

Talking at the Television Critics Association press tour earlier this week, Showtime revealed that Josh Hartnett and Eva Green will star in Penny Dreadful. Skyfall scribe John Logan is set to write all eight episodes of the series, with the director of that movie Sam Mendes set to executive produce. It was at one point thought he would direct the first episode, but other commitments (the next James Bond movie) mean that it will now be helmed by The Impossible's Juan Antonio Bayona. Set in Victorian England, the horror series will feature iconic horror characters such as Dracula, Van Helsing, Dorian Gray and Dr. Frankenstein. Hartnett is set to play Ethan Chandler, "a charming American who finds himself trapped in the darkest corners of Victorian London." Green meanwhile will play Vanessa Ives, "a seductive and formidable beauty full of secrets and danger." More details are expected to be revealed in the New Year.
