In a programme presented by Zoe Ball and featuring the likes of Peter Davison, the 12th Doctor was revealed to be Peter Capaldi, who has been one of the popular favorites in the ongoing speculation. Since Matt Smith announced his departure back in June, fans have been wondering who would be stepping into the Tardis to replace him. Rumors flew that it might be a woman, and pretty much every name in British tv was thrown around at some point or another. Capaldi, 55, was most recently see in World War Z playing “W.H.O. Doctor” (yes, really) but is probably best known for his sweary, hilarious turn as Malcolm Tucker in the BBC comedy series The Thick of It and its follow-up film In the Loop. What do you think of this choice?

Juliette Lewis Joins M. Night Shyamalan’s Fox Series ‘Wayward Pines’

Matt Dillon’s character, Secret Service agent Ethan Burke will find a likeminded townie on Fox’s limited series “Wayward Pines.”

Juliette Lewis has been cast as Beverly, a local bartender who’s also suspicious of “Wayward Pines,” a Fox representative told TheWrap.

Beverly is described as “warm and approachable,” though she doesn’t mince words.

Lewis is best known for her many movie credits, including “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,” “Natural Born Killers” and “From Dusk Till Dawn.” But, she recently starred on the shortlived NBC series, “The Firm.”

Aside from Dillon, she joins already announced cast members Shannyn Sossamon, Terrence Howard, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones and Melissa Leo on “Wayward Pines,” which is based on Blake Crouch’s novel series of the same the name.

The series, billed as “an intense, mind-bending thriller,” follows Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (Dillon), who arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, Idaho, on a mission to find two missing federal agents. But instead of answers, Ethan’s investigation only turns up more questions.

Game Of Thrones' Kit Harington Goes Gladiator In New Pompeii Still
He will have his vengeance (and another protein shake, most likely)



Some people watch Game Of Thrones for the excellent acting, the intricate plotting, the adorable (yet killer) direwolves, the sky-high production values, the uber-catchy theme tune or a combination of all five. Others (whether they admit it or not) are in it for Kit Harington's Jon Snow, the embarrasingly handsome long-haired Adonis who makes most men double-check their gym membership. It's a wonder he's not in cinemas more often... and lo, here's a new still of Harrington in Paul W. S. Anderson's Pompeii courtesy of EW. That's a whole lot of press-ups right there.

The Resident Evil director's take on history's most famous volcanic eruption sees Harington's Celtic gladiator Milo fall in love with Roman noblewoman Cassia (Emily Browning) on the eve of the all-important lava palaver. After a certain amount of rumpy-Pompeii, things gets extra dramatic when Milo finally discovers the men who killed his family years earlier, which will no doubt result in a nice cup of tea and a sit down bloodshed.

Rounding out Pompeii's cast are Jared Harris, Kiefer Sutherland, Carrie-Anne Moss, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Jessica Lucas, who will all be walking through plumes of ash and toxic outer-core dust looking cool come February 28, 2014.

Harington will also voice a character in the upcoming How To Train Your Dragon 2 and can be spotted in Seventh Son once February 7, 2014 comes along.

Seth Rogen Brings ‘Bigfoot’ to FX

Seth Rogen is getting animated for FX.

Rogen and his “Pineapple Express” cohort have landed a pilot for an animated project, “Bigfoot,” which centers on “everyone’s favorite crypto-zoological hominid, as a modern day everyman who struggles with life’s philosophical quandaries as well as his own animalistic tendencies,” the network said Wednesday.

The project is based on the Bigfoot graphic-novel “autobiographies” by writer and illustrator Graham Roumieu, who is also involved with the pilot.

Rogen and Goldberg are executive producing via their Point Grey Pictures. Roumieu is also executive producing, as are Matt McKenna (“American Dad”), who also wrote the pilot, Jimmy Miller and Sam Hansen of Mosaic, and Adam Reed and Matt Thompson of Floyd County Productions.

“We found Bigfoot!” Nick Grad, president of original programming, FX Networks and FX Productions, said of the project.

“This will be the greatest show about an animated Bigfoot ever made,” Rogen added.

In all, FX currently has seven comedy pilots in production, including “The Comedians,” which stars Billy Crystal and Josh Gad; and “Death Pact,” starring Tracy Morgan.

SyFy orders '12 Monkeys' pilot

Terry Gilliam’s 1995 film 12 Monkeys may become a series at SyFy.

The cable net announced today that it’s developing a pilot about a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race.

Production is set to begin in November on the script from Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett (Terra Nova, Nikita). The pilot is cast contingent — meaning, if they can’t find actors to fill the roles originally played by the likes of Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt in the movie — the project won’t go forward.

The film grossed over $160 million and earned Pitt an Academy Award nomination.

Vincent Cassel Finds Child 44

Hey you, directors! Yes, you. Have you recently lost a cast member from a film you’re working on? Need a top-notch replacement in a hurry? Then you need Casselfix™ from Ronco! Casselfix™ is the ideal solution when there’s a hole in your ensemble to plug or the head of your cast has dropped off and you need a replacement. Just ask Daniel Espinosa, who has used Casselfix™ on Child 44 to plug a hole left by Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Yes, Hoffman has dropped out of the thriller, which has been shooting since June, and now Espinosa has turned to Vincent Cassel to replace him. Child 44 finds Tom Hardy as a Russian military copper investigating child murders during Stalin’s reign in the early 1950s. When he’s accused of treason, everyone begins to turn against him, including his wife (Noomi Rapace) and his boss (Gary Oldman). Cassel is joining a cast that also features Joel Kinnaman, Jason Clarke and Paddy Considine.

News of Cassel parachuting in to fill the gap comes in the wake of Ariel Kleiman hiring him for cult leader drama Partisan, which originally had Oscar Isaac in the main role. Cassel will work on Child 44 first before heading to Australia for Partisan.

Jonah Nolan & J.J. Abrams Plan Westworld Series For HBO
The robots are revolting again

In the last decade or so there have been several attempts to remake Michael Crichton’s 1973 cult sci-fi pic Westworld on the big screen, with Joel Silver taking a stab, Arnold Schwarzenegger considering starring and, in 2005, Tarsem Singh attached to direct. Now, genre titans Jonah Nolan and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot company have united to bring the story as a series to HBO.

It’s all thanks to producer Jerry Weintraub – himself a man of considerable influence – who has been driving the remake idea for years. It’s not yet known how closely the show’s plotline will mirror the original story, though we'd guess the basics will stay: holidaymakers at an amusement park for adults are menaced when the robot characters (particularly a gunslinger played by Yul Brynner) malfunction and turn homicidal.

As of right now, the US cable channel (home to Game Of Thrones and True Blood) has given the go-ahead for a pilot that Nolan will write with his wife, Lisa Joy, and direct. Abrams and Bryan Burk will produce the show, which means that Bad Robot is overseeing a show about, well, bad robots.

Nolan (brother of Christopher, and regular co-writer on the Dark Knight films) is a proven TV quantity after spending two seasons running successful drama Person Of Interest. It’ll be intriguing to see what they pull together, especially as Westworld's success has proved troublesome to replicate, judging by a dodgy sequel and an abortive original TV spin-off that aired in 1980.

NBC Planning Constantine As A TV Series
David Goyer and Daniel Cerone writing pilot

While DC has so far struggled to make a big-screen impact beyond Superman and Batman, it's consistently had more success with episodic television. Smallville (Superman) gave way to Arrow (Green Arrow), which is soon to be joined by The Flash and the pre-Batman Gotham, about Commissioner Gordon and the Gotham PD. Now NBC are getting in on the action, developing a series based on John Constantine, star of DC/Vertigo's Hellblazer series. David S. Goyer (who else?) is writing the pilot, with Mentalist exec-producer Daniel Cerone.

John Constantine, the cynical, manipulative, trenchcoated, chain-smoking urban magician, was created by the legendary Alan Moore in 1985, as a supporting character in his famous Swamp Thing run. It was Swamp Thing's title, but the scene-stealing Constantine immediately became the story's engine, installing himself essentially as Swamp Thing's manager in an arc involving the Brujeria: a black magic chaos cult who had quietly taken over the world and were next intent on the destruction of Heaven.

Constantine grew to the extent that he was given his own series in 1988 (initially to be called Hellraiser until a certain Clive Barker film forced a re-think). With Moore disinclined to write it himself, the job fell to fellow Northampton resident Jamie Delano, whose lengthy run was followed by sterling work from Garth Ennis, Paul Jenkins, Warren Ellis, Brian Azzarello, Mike Carey, Denise Mina, Andy Diggle and Pete Milligan (among many others, including Neil Gaiman). After 25 years, post DC's New 52 re-jig, Hellblazer was retired last February at issue 300, and Constantine was folded into regular DC continuity, both in his own more mainstream series, and as part of the Justice League Dark.

There was, of course, a Constantine film in 2005, which got some things right, but re-cast the Liverpudlian Sting-lookalike Constantine as Keanu Reeves, turned his taxi-driving compatriot Chas into a teen sidekick (Shia LaBeouf), gave him a crucifix-shotgun and had him pack in the gaspers. A television series then, has every opportunity to do the thing properly - even if somewhere like HBO would seem a better home for sweary fights with demons than primetime NBC. There's also scope for appearances by other characters in the DC pantheon: Swamp Thing, obviously, but Constantine has also encountered Shade, Sandman, Animal Man, Zatanna, The Phantom Stranger and various others (including Batman).

Where this leaves Guillermo Del Toro's own mooted Justice League Dark project is unclear, although given that DC's TV and film projects have hitherto not interconnected, it's possible a movie and a show could exist independently, side-by-side. What we do know is that Goyer and Cerone have a "script plus penalty" deal, which means they get paid for the script, plus more if the show doesn't go into production. That means it's often more economical for a studio to actually make a show than not make it. So the signs are good for Constantine to at least reach the pilot stage. We'll keep you posted.

Atlantis will air on BBC America November 23

 http://www.digitalspy.com/british-tv/s230/atlantis/news/a518907/atlantis-review-is-bbc-ones-new-series-a-gift-from-the-gods.html

Given the strong talent attached to BBC One's new fantasy drama Atlantis - a dream team of Misfits creator Howard Overman and Merlin's Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy - it's understandable that fantasy fans, in particular Merlin aficionados, have been chomping at the bit for this one.

But now that the show's finally hit the airwaves, does it meet and even surpass our expectations? Or is that wealth of anticipation as much a curse as a blessing (no pun intended?).

The positives are that Atlantis boasts both a strong cast and terrific visuals. 'The Earth Bull' looks fantastic, and across the episode's 47-minute run time we're treated to some wonderfully epic visuals, with the magic of television transforming a chilly set in Wales into what feels like a vibrant, living and breathing city.

Set, costume and the realisation of the show's fantasy elements all impress - the Minotaur, lurking in the shadows, looks particularly great.

As with Merlin, talented young newcomers have wisely been paired with some more recognizable fans, including some with serious cult credentials - the addition of Alexander Siddig, here playing the King of Atlantis, to any program is a definite boon.

Jack Donnelly is an attractive, likeable lead - those shirtless scenes will go down well with the Tumblr crowd - and Mark Addy plays to his strengths as a rather unconventional Hercules, essentially Robert Baratheon played for laughs.

Addy's blustering strongman shares a fun dynamic with Donnelly's Jason and Robert Emms's "triangle guy" Pythagoras, while Sarah Parish is as brilliant as you'd expect as you'd expect in the 'Evil Queen' role.


The problems with the Atlantis premiere do not lie in its cast or its on-screen realisation, but in its script. A certain amount of 'pilot-itis' - heavy-handed establishing of characters and premise - is to be expected from most series openers, but there's other issues here.

While it's obviously important in a show like this to keep the pace up, for fear of boring younger viewers, Jason acclimatises to his surprising new situation far too rapidly, and while it's a bold move for Atlantis to tackle the Minotaur in its first episode, the ploy ultimately backfires. With the legendary beast vanquished so quickly, you're left wondering 'Is that it?'

The biggest problem though - one that Merlin fans will no doubt pick up on - is that, with its square-jawed hero, his intellectual friend with hidden strengths, the beautiful and gentle love interest, a tyrannical ruler and - to come next week - a trustworthy companion doomed to a monstrous fate, Atlantis is sticking far too rigidly to a tried-and-tested format.

To his credit, writer Overman does successfully set up a rather intriguing story arc to play out in future episodes: what is Jason's destiny? Is his father really dead? Who is the Oracle (Juliet Stevenson)? Is she - as we suspect - actually Jason's mother?

Merlin came on in leaps and bounds following its uneven first episode, so fingers crossed that Atlantis will grow and flourish in similar fashion. Right now the show is far from perfect, but it is good, solid fun and, with a few tweaks, absolutely has the potential to become the next big family-friendly hit.

Massive Size Comparison Chart of Famous Spaceships From Sci-Fi Films, TV Shows, & Games

German artist Dirk Loechel has created a massive chart that compares the sizes of famous spaceships from sci-fi films, TV shows, and games. Some of the ships are from Star Wars, Star Trek, and Warhammer 40,000, and the gigantic chart contains starships many other fictional universes. Previously, we wrote about an interactive guide by Chris Kirk of Slate that compares the speeds of science-fiction spaceships.

Hugh Jackman Set For Chappie
He'll join Neill Blomkamp's latest

Hugh Jackman might be enjoying a break between projects – sort of, since he’s been on the promotional trail for his latest film, kidnap drama Prisoners – but he has plenty of movies lined up and has just added another to the list. Speaking at a press conference at the Zurich Film Festival, he announced he’s taken a role in Neill Blomkamp’s robo-action-comedy Chappie.

“I am doing a role in Neill’s new film, called Chappie, which we shoot in Johannesburg,” Jackman said, as reported by Screen International. “I’m there for a couple of weeks at the beginning of next year.”

Sharlto Copley will be voicing the titular droid, an advanced machine stolen by two gangsters (rappers Ninja and Yolandi Visser) who look to use the robot for their own criminal ends. Eugene Khumbanyiwa and Elysium’s Jose Pablo Cantillo are also aboard the film, which Blomkamp wrote with Terri Tatchell. There's no word on Jackman's precise role yet, but look out for that soon.

In related Jackman news, he touched upon his seemingly stalled plans for a Broadway musical based on Houdini, saying that he's still mulling whether to do it. And talking of performers, there’s the new film of PT Barnum’s life, The Greatest Showman On Earth. "I thought it would stay in active development, if I’m honest, because new musicals are very difficult,” says Jackman. “But just recently it’s taken a real turn and there’s some real momentum so watch this space.”

Geoffrey Rush Joins Gerard Butler & Nikolaj Coster-Waldau In GODS OF EGYPT

Alex Proyas will co-write and direct this fantasy flick which focuses on deities from Egyptian mythology, and as you can see he's assembled quite a cast so far.

We've kept this one just under our radar until casting began to heat up, and that it most certainly has! The Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City) directed Gods Of Egypt will tell the story of Horus' mission to avenge his father Osiris' (god of the Underworld) death at the hands of his uncle, Set (god of the desert) joining forces with a human hero (isn't there always one?) in the process. Game Of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will play Horus, Gerard Butler will play Set, and Geoffrey Rush has now signed on to play the sun god Ra, father of Set and Osiris. Proyas wrote the script with Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, who are behind Universal’s upcoming horror saga Dracula Untold .This sounds interesting, and could be something special...then again it could also be Clash Of The Titans!

'Doctor Who' missing episodes found, BBC confirms

The BBC has confirmed rumors that a batch of missing Doctor Who episodes have been found.

Reports circulated earlier this week that a number of 'lost' episodes from the BBC sci-fi drama starring William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton had been discovered.

A report on BBC News has now confirmed the find, with "a number of early episodes" apparently having been recovered.

A total of 106 episodes of Doctor Who first aired in the 1960s are currently missing, with the transmission tapes having been wiped after initial airings.

A number of episodes previously thought lost have been recovered over the years via foreign broadcasters, who still possessed film transfers of the original recordings.

Further details pertaining to the newly discovered episodes are yet to be confirmed. It is currently unknown which episodes have been recovered and how many the BBC now possesses in total.

Doctor Who began in 1963, with November 23 this year marking the show's 50th anniversary. The BBC previously announced a slate of celebratory programming to mark the milestone.

Peter Dinklage To Star In R-Rated Leprechaun Comedy
Think Bad Santa, but with more Tyrion Lannister


Paramount has Tyrion Lannister (or Bolivar Trask, depending on your poison) ready to star in an R-rated comedy. Peter Dinklage will play a sharp-tongued man who tells people he's a real leprechaun. Producers say that the tone will be Bad Santa-like, though hopefully it won't see Dinklage playing an angry elf.

On this unnamed project's writing detail is Andrew Dodge, the man who wrote Jason Bateman's upcoming directorial debut, Bad Words. That film centres on a group of foul-mouthed kids who are part of a spelling bee, so expect similarly fruity language in Dinklage's leading man comedy outing.

Recently, Dinklage's work in Game Of Thrones has won him an Emmy and a Golden Globe, and judging by the fawning crowds at Comic-Con this year, where he was heralded as some sort of god, the two-time Death At A Funeral veteran will remain in the spotlight for a long time. If you haven't already, be sure to check out his performance in Thomas McCarthy's The Station Agent, which proves that he'd been turning in fantastic dramatic performances years before he got locked up in The Eyrie.

Dinklage will next be seen on the big screen as X-Men: Days Of Future Past's bad guy, Bolivar Trask, when the mutant movie hits cinemas on May 22, 2014.

DOCTOR WHO 50th Anniversary Special Promotional Photos



With the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special, “The Day of the Doctor,” just about six weeks away, we’ve still yet to have a trailer or any clips or anything. We’ve had a poster, sure, and there were even some set photos during filming, but that were about it. Until now. BBC America has just released these snazzy new promotional stills from the special. They still tell us absolutely nothing and don’t depict anything we didn’t already know, but any new stuff is good stuff. There are six pictures which you can see.
“The Day of the Doctor” airs on Saturday, November 23rd, 2013, simulcast worldwide, on BBC America here in the States. Check your local listings because I can’t be bothered. I’m too busy trying to figure out what number Hurt is.

http://www.doctorwho.tv/whats-new/article/11-things-we-loved-in-the-doctor-who-50-year-trailer/

We hope you’ve seen the 50 year trailer for The Day of the Doctor (if not, watch the trailer now!) and enjoyed it as much as we did. Because it was crammed full of “blink and you’ll miss it” moments (and we’ve warned you about blinking before), here are 11 things we really loved seeing in this celebration of 50 years of adventures:

1. Tiny Yeti
A topical one, considering the recent return of The Web of Fear (1968), the little Yeti sculptures act as a homing device for their larger, more terrifying counterparts. To anyone who finds one of these, our best advice would be to get rid of it quick!

2. Clockwork droids
Hanging next to the Yeti is the mask from one of the SS Madame de Pompadour’s single-minded clockwork robots, who spent years opening time windows into the life of the real Madame de Pompadour, in an effort to harvest her for parts (The Girl in the Fireplace, 2006). Other masks seen nearby include the mask of the Brethren from The Masque of Mandragora (1976), and the golden head of one of the Santa “Pilot Fish” from The Christmas Invasion (2005).

3. Fob watch
Or is it a Time Lord Chameleon Arch? The fob watch was a device used by both the Doctor and the Master to rewrite their biology and disguise themselves as humans. The watch carries a perception filter, so the carrier is often unaware of its true importance (Human Nature, The Family of Blood, Utopia, 2007)

4. The Key To Time
Glimpsed through the legs of the unfortunate extermination victim, is the brightly coloured tracer wand, given to the Doctor by the White Guardian to aid him in his search for the Key To Time. Next to the wand and key is the robot parrot Polyphase Avatron, owned by the captain of The Pirate Planet (1978), and encountered while the Doctor and Romana were finding the second segment of the Key.

5. Dalek saucers
“Rebels of London, come out of your hiding places. The Daleks offer you life!” These saucers were last seen (will be seen?) blasting London to the ground, around the year 2150, when the Daleks invade the Earth (The Dalek Invasion of Earth, 1964)

6. TARDIS key
In several of its guises. The “silver spade” key shown here, was first seen in the Third Doctor’s final season in 1974, and was used sporadically up until Doctor Who: The Movie in 1996. The more standard-looking key has also been used numerous times – most notably glowing in the Doctor’s hand to show that the TARDIS had finished repairing itself (The Eleventh Hour, 2010).

7. The Empress of the Racnoss
The multi-legged villainess of 2006’s Christmas special The Runaway Bride, the Empress of the Racnoss, is seen scuttling behind the Eighth Doctor and an Ood. She was last seen being flushed into her own pit to the centre of the Earth, like a spider down a plughole.

8. Bessie
Favourite of the Third Doctor, Bessie was an Edwardian roadster, that the Doctor had extensively modified. Customisations include an anti-theft device that sticks the thief to the car, remote control operation and massive acceleration, combined with safe breaking, so as not to harm the occupants. He was seen driving it when Clara was scattered into the Doctor’s timestream in The Name of the Doctor (2013).

9. The Shard
Location for the climactic events of this year’s The Bells of Saint John, London’s tallest skyscraper the Shard appears in the trail, not far from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge – a nod to the location of Doctor Who: The Movie (1996) perhaps?

10. Laser Screwdriver
HERE COME THE DRUMS! The Master trumped the Doctor with his laser screwdriver in The Sound of Drums / The Last of the Time Lords (2007), when it was seen to age the Doctor hundreds of years.

11. 17162311
That number. It had us foxed for a bit (to the point where we wondered if it spelled something when viewed upside-down). And then we realised: it’s the time and date of broadcast for the first episode of Doctor Who. According to the official paperwork, An Unearthly Child episode one, began transmission on the BBC at 17.16 and 20 seconds, on November 23, 1963. And that, after all, is why we’re still here

John Larroquette Joins Fox’s ‘Almost Human’

“Almost Human” just added another human in the form of actor John Larroquette.

The veteran thespian will play a genius roboticist named Nigel in the futuristic Fox thriller, which recently pushed its release date back two weeks.

The Emmy-winner was most recently on NBC’s ”Deception” and a series regular on “Boston Legal,” but Larroquette will probably forever be best known for his starring role as Dan Fielding on the 1980s and ’90s sitcom, “Night Court.”

“Almost Human” takes place in the year 2048, when every cop is required to be paired up with an android partner. The action-drama stars Karl Urban and Michael Ealy. The series was created by “Fringe” showrunner J.H. Wyman. Among its executive producers is J.J. Abrams, of “Lost” and “Star Trek” fame.

“Almost Human” will now premiere Sunday Nov. 17 after a Fox Sports football double-header. The second episode airs the following evening in its regular time slot debut.
