Netflix has officially announced The Witcher: Blood Origin, a prequel series set 1200 years before their wildly successful The Witcher.

Today, Netflix announced the development of The Witcher: Blood Origin. It will be set 1200 years before Geralt's story and will tell the origin of the very first Witcher. Additional details have yet to be revealed, though it is clear that The Witcher: Blood Origin will be a 6-part live-action series, and The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich will produce alongside Declan de Barra.

Per the official logline provided by Netflix, The Witcher: Blood Origin will see the "worlds of monsters, men and elves merged into one." Therefore, it seems like this will be about two different origins: That of the Witchers, as well as the world fans know from the original series. De Barra, who serves as a writer on The Witcher, said about this new show, "A question has been burning in my mind ever since I first read ‘The Witcher’ books – What was the Elven world really like before the cataclysmic arrival of the humans?" He continued, "‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ will tell the tale of the Elven civilization before its fall, and most importantly reveal the forgotten history of the very first Witcher." For those interested in the history of the Continent and its civilization, The Witcher: Blood Origin sounds like the perfect series. It'll be interesting to see how the first Witcher ends up comparing to Geralt.

Considering the scope of The Witcher's fantasy realm, it isn't too surprising that it has yielded its own spin-off. After all, many have compared The Witcher to Game of Thrones, and that series is getting a prequel as well. The Witcher: Blood Origin seems to still be in the early development stages, which means it might be a while before fans get to see it. Before then, though, Netflix will likely prioritize season 2 of The Witcher, which resumes production next month. While it might be a while before these projects end up on fans' screens, at least they can rest assured that they'll be learning a lot more about the Witchers and their world in the future.

Disney to Release Mulan on Disney+

Mulan is one of the most-anticipated films of the year, but the ongoing pandemic has made it difficult to bring the movie to theaters. So far, Disney has been forced to alter the release date for Mulan multiple times as COVID-19 spikes continue to delay its premiere. Now, Disney has confirmed in an investor call that Mulan will stream on Disney+ through a premium access basis that will cost about $30.

So far, Disney+ aims to release Mulan on September 4th using its new premium access feature. Few details about the feature were given during the call, but its cost was discussed. Users will spend $29.99 to access the feature in order to watch Mulan, and many expect it to work like other VOD services. Disney said it would have another call for investors within the next month to discuss specific details.

The shocking move comes as a new press release from Disney breaks down its third-quarter losses due to COVID-19. The company reports it has suffered a $3 billion loss because of the pandemic's effect on business. This premium model for Disney+ will help mitigate the box office loss Mulan will take by streaming, but CEO Bob Chapek made it clear Mulan would screen in select theaters.

According to Chapek, Mulan will be available in theaters in select markets with widely opened theaters. No specific areas were named during the call, but markets like Japan have reopened their theaters in stages within the last month or so.

This move is a first for Disney and comes as a surprise to many fans. Last month left fans convinced Mulan would be moved back further for a theatrical release following the delay of Tenet by Warner Brothers. Discussion about the live-action Disney flick flared after it was announced Tenet would screen theatrically in select markets, but the idea of it moving to VOD was considered extreme. However, given the new information, Disney has provided about its streaming service's user base, this move could easily work. Chapek confirmed the site has amassed more than 60 million paid users, and those are all potential consumers for Mulan on VOD. That doesn't even account for non-subscribers who would flock to the service to watch the feature at an additional cost.

At this time, Disney has not made any other announcements about the release dates of any other films. The comic fandom is keeping a close eye on The New Mutants as it is meant to hit theaters later in August. The call did say Disney is treating Mulan as a one-off instance for VOD at this time.

CBS Boss Says ‘Dexter’ Season 8 Will Be the Last


This may be the final nail in the coffin for “Dexter.”

It’s been speculated over the last year that the Showtime serial killer drama was setting up its “end game” and preparing to wrap up the story of Dexter Morgan for good with Season 8.


“Dexter” fans holding their breath for a change of heart will be disappointed to hear that scenario is likely the case.

On a call with investors Monday, CBS president Les Moonves (CBS owns Showtime) seems to have delivered confirmation on the fate of the show, when he referred to this upcoming season of “Dexter,” which premieres in June, as its “last,” according to Broadcasting & Cable.



While that has been presumed for some time, Showtime president David Nevins has yet to officially announce that Season 8 is “Dexter’s” final season, leading viewers and industry observers to speculate that perhaps they were considering an extension.

But with Moonves being the top brass at CBS Corp., one has to assume he knows what he’s talking about. Sorry, “Dexter” fans. Now viewers can obsess over how “Dexter” will go out — Will he finally get caught? Will he get away with it and disappear into the sunset? Will he die? Let the speculation begin!


‘Dexter’ Returning to Showtime for 10-Episode Limited Series

America’s favorite serial killer is returning to Showtime, which has ordered a new 10-episode Dexter limited series that will once again star Michael C. Hall., the network announced Wednesday.

Clyde Phillips will return as showrunner, and the limited series is set to begin production early next year, with a tentative premiere date in the fall of 2021. No supporting cast was mentioned, and given the ultimate fate of Dexter’s sister, Deborah Morgan, it’s unlikely that Jennifer Carpenter would return, unless the series incorporates flashbacks. One would assume, however, that Yvonne Strahovski will come back, seeing as how her character Hannah is raising Dexter’s young son, Harrison, who has surely grown up since the original series finale in 2013.

“Dexter is such a special series, both for its millions of fans and for Showtime, as this breakthrough show helped put our network on the map many years ago,” said Showtime president Gary Levine, who made the announcement with Jana Winograde. “We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series. Well, I am happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall have found it, and we can’t wait to shoot it and show it to the world!”

The original eight-season run of Dexter premiered in the fall of 2006 and starred Hall as Dexter Morgan, a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami police department who moonlights as a serial killer. All seasons of Dexter are currently available on Showtime via Showtime On Demand and Showtime Anytime as well as the network’s stand-alone service.

Hall is a six-time Emmy nominee for Outstanding Lead Actor, the last five nominations coming in consecutive years for his work on Dexter. He also received five consecutive Golden Globe nominations and six Screen Actors Guild noms for the role, winning both honors in 2010. In addition, Hall received an Emmy nomination for his performance on HBO’s Six Feet Under.

Phillips earned Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for his work as executive producer and showrunner of Dexter. Phillips has an overall deal with Showtime and CBS Television Studios through which he is developing projects for both entities that can air on platforms within or outside the ViacomCBS family.

I absolutely adored Dexter throughout its eight-season run (guest stars John Lithgow and Jimmy Smits were so good), but there’s no question that the character didn’t get the send-off he deserved, as the series finale wasn’t especially satisfying. Phillips and Hall now have the opportunity to right that creative wrong, and I’m not so sure Dexter deserves a “happy” ending this time around. Either way, I can’t wait to see where they take the character, and only hope the new denouement is worthy of the original show.

It's time to make first contact with NBC's brand-new genre series coming to the network this spring.

At a TCA panel Tuesday afternoon, NBC dropped a sneak peek at Debris, a UFO-based mystery/drama about an ominous alien wreckage strewn across the western hemisphere. The pieces start messing with the laws of physics in a way the human mind can barely comprehend. Our species just isn't ready for this tech and as a result, two agents (played by Jonathan Tucker and Riann Steele) from two different continents — and opposing mindsets — are tasked with recovering the splintered craft.

Described as a tantalizing mix of The X-Files and Men in Black, Debris was created by Almost Human's J.H. Wyman, who also serves as writer, executive producer, and showrunner. Watching the first footage, it's easy to see that Wyman learned a thing or two about delivering paranormal thrills from his time as an executive producer on Fringe.

NBC ordered the project to series last summer, making it the first pilot of 2020 to score a full season from the network. Luckily, the flagship episode had already finished most of its on-site production just prior to the lengthy shutdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Any remaining footage was filled in with temporary animation — a similar tactic used by The Blacklist's Season 7 finale.

Jason Hoffs, Jeff Vlaming, and Samantha Corbin-Miller are attached as executive producers on Debris, which is a co-production between Frequency Films (Wyman's production company) and Legendary Television, and Universal Television.

The close encounter begins on NBC on March 1.

BLACK PANTHER 2 LOOKING FOR MAYAN WARRIORS

A casting call has gone out for Black Panther 2 as Marvel is searching for a pair of Mayan warriors for the movie.

The call sheet also reveals a tentative filming schedule for Black Panther 2 as it is noted the actors are needed to work from April to November.

The roles are for a male and a female:

CADMAEL - Male, 20s-40s, Mayan. 6'0" (1.8m) or taller. Powerful, strong, a loyal warrior and formidable presence. Any fight or stunts experience is a huge plus.

ZYANYA - Female, 20s-40s, Mayan. Fierce, cunning, a great warrior. Physical training or fight/dance experience is a plus.

The casting call also says that "while the characters are Mayan, we welcome submissions of actors from all North American and South American Indigenous backgrounds."

It's unknown why Mayan warriors are needed for Black Panther 2, but some fans are guessing it may have something to do with Namor and the Atlanteans who are rumored for the flick.

Black Panther 2 has a July 8, 2022 release written and directed by Ryan Coogler.

Band Of Brothers Follow-Up Masters Of The Air Starts Filming With James Bond Director

The popular Band of Brothers TV show is getting a sequel of sorts with Masters of the Air, and now it has begun production. Cary Joji Fukunaga, who directed True Detective and 007: No Time To Die, made the announcement on Instagram where he confirmed recently that he has completed the first week on Masters of the Air.

Fukunaga is directing multiple episodes of the mini-series, which follows on from HBO's Band of Brothers and The Pacific. The series is headed to Apple TV+ after the iPhone company acquired it from HBO.

Based on the book of the same name by Donald L. Miller, Masters of the Air is a World War III mini-series about pilots. Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Gary Goetzman have been reunited for the new series, along with writer John Orloff, who also wrote Band of Brothers.

Irish actor Anthony Boyle (The Cursed Child) plays the lead, Major Crosby, while Once Upon a Time in Hollywood's Austin Butler is set to portray Major Gale Cleven. Callum Turner (Fantastics Beasts) is lined up to play Major John Egan.

There is no word yet on when Masters of the Air will premiere.

Whoa: Sam Raimi And Bruce Campbell Reunite For EVIL DEAD RISE

Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert and Bruce Campbell – the acclaimed filmmaking team behind the iconic “Evil Dead” franchise – will reunite with horror house New Line Cinema nearly 40 years after the Studio’s landmark release of their seminal shocker for the highly anticipated next chapter in the saga, “Evil Dead Rise,” for HBO Max.

Moving the action out of the woods and into the city, “Evil Dead Rise” tells a twisted tale of two estranged sisters, played by Alyssa Sutherland (TV’s “The Mist” and “Vikings” ) and Lily Sullivan (“Picnic at Hanging Rock,” “Jungle”), whose reunion is cut short by the rise of flesh-possessing demons, thrusting them into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.

With Tapert producing, and Raimi and Campbell signing on as executive producers, along with Romel Adam, John Keville and Macdara Kelleher, the new film is being written and directed by award-winning Irish filmmaker Lee Cronin, who was hand-picked to take the helm by Raimi, Tapert and Campbell after earning widespread praise from critics and fans alike for his feature directorial debut, the 2019 chiller “The Hole in the Ground.”

Said Raimi, “I’m thrilled to bring ‘Evil Dead’ back to its original home at New Line 40 years after the release of the first film. The company’s history as pioneers of horror speaks for itself. I’m equally excited to be working with Lee Cronin, whose gifts as a storyteller make him the ideal filmmaker to continue the enduring legacy of the franchise.”

“At its core, ‘Evil Dead’ is about ordinary people overcoming extraordinarily terrifying situations,” added Campbell, whose embodiment of the ‘Evil Dead’ franchise’s reluctant hero, Ashley J. “Ash” Williams, has propelled the actor/filmmaker to international icon status across generations. “I can’t wait for Alyssa and Lily to fill the blood-soaked shoes of those who have come before them and carry on that tradition.”

Said director Cronin, “The ‘Evil Dead’ movies filled my brain with terror and awe when I first saw them at nine years old. I am excited and humbled to be resurrecting the most iconic of evil forces for both the fans and a whole new generation.”

Welcome back, Ash. Let's go.

Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery & Director Troy Duffy Reunite For ‘The Boondock Saints III’

The Boondock Saints are back. Director Troy Duffy has reunited with Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery for Boondock Saints III, a new installment of the saga of fraternal twin Irish brothers Connor and Murphy MacManus, who go on a vigilante track. That starts after they dispatch two Russian mobsters in self defense, and then have an epiphany to rid their Boston hometown of all crime, while being hunted by an FBI agent (Willem Dafoe) who can’t help but admire their cause.

Impossible Dream Entertainment partners Shaun Redick (Get Out, BlacKkKlansman) and Yvette Yates Redick are producing the package with Don Carmody (Good Will Hunting) and Duffy. Latter wrote the script for the film with Flanery, with a lot of input from Reedus. The film will shoot next May, when Flanery has completed his work on the series The Boys and Reedus is freed up from The Walking Dead.

Financing is Todd Myers’ Dragonfly Films, and The Exchange will broker worldwide sales at the Virtual American Film Market. Reedus and Flannery are executive producing along with Nat McCormick of The Exchange and Todd Myers of Dragonfly Films.

“The fans have loved these characters for 20 years,” Duffy said. “They use terms of endearment like ‘the Brothers’ or ‘the Boys.’ We left them in jail at the end of Boondock 2 and fans want to know what happened to them. Norman and Sean have been a driving force to keep this franchise on track and break some new ground story-wise. The fans have been waiting. They literally ask about it daily, and I am really excited to be working with Impossible Dream to make Boondock III a reality.”

Said Shaun Redick: “It’s easy to see how this franchise has attracted and maintained its strong cult following all of these years when you dig into the mythology and execution of the storytelling. Troy, Norman and Sean have skillfully architected a killer story that fans will go crazy for, just as Yvette and I have. We love and appreciate that Boondock Saints has such a rabid fan base that is starving for anything and everything that builds on the franchise. We see fans tattoo the characters, sayings, and prayer on their bodies, they engage in digital and social media, and they travel enormous distances to meet and engage with the creators and stars of the films and comics. All this makes us excited to get to work with the team and deliver something distinct and special.”

Yvette Yates Redick added that “Regardless of whether or not someone has seen the first two films, Saints III will blow them away. Moreover, this is a proud comeback moment for Troy — a storyteller who has demonstrated humility and resilience in the face of adversity and emerged more focused and determined than ever to continue the Boondock Saints story. We’re proud to back him and his authentic vision for this franchise.”

The hope is grow a rabid fan based and turn the Saints into a John Wick-type global action franchise. It is the latest twist in the saga of Duffy and the Saints, a crazy ride that has more ups and downs than an EKG. Duffy was a bartender/musician who, tired of watching bad action films, tried to write a good one. It made the Hollywood rounds and suddenly this rowdy suds slinger at J Sloans saw the bar filled with studio execs trying to make a deal. He chose an offer from Harvey Weinstein and Miramax that was to give him title to the watering hole in addition to a fat check. Duffy never got the bar, as Weinstein lost interest when he couldn’t land the stars he wanted. Duffy prevailed in getting the film made, only to find himself in the awkward position of showing it to studios right after the murders at Columbine High in Colorado. The Boondock Saints did paltry box office, then went on to become wildly profitable in its ancillary run. It continues to have a strong following, which its makers hope bodes well toward growing the franchise now that there will be enough money to make the second sequel on a grander scale.

“You never know which films are going to hit, or what kind of special you got that makes for something people will gravitate toward,” Duffy told Deadline. “Nobody knows. The closest we got to someone knowing happened when we were having the first screenings for Boondock Saints, at the Sony lot, Paramount lot, Fox lot, and it was right after the Columbine incident. Columbine shut us down. They were pulling back on everything violent, especially with youthful violence, even ones that featured trench coats [which the Columbine killers wore]. We got caught right in the middle of that, distraught because everyone had worked so hard. We didn’t have anything to do with this tragic thing that happened in Colorado, and we felt, there is real life and there are movies, what is going on? A buyer told us. Hey, you guys have been blacklisted. Nobody is buying your movie to release in theaters right now. And then something prophetic. It was Billy Connolly who came walking out of the theater, and he was like [mimicking Connolly’s Scottish brogue], ‘Fuck it! The kids will find it! It’s rock and roll.’ He was the only one who was like, it doesn’t matter. This is too good, it’s going places. All of us didn’t know, except Billy.

“I’ve seen people with perfect projects that just sail through all the processes and turn into terrible films,” he said. “And then ones that are super difficult, nothing but stress and horror from the first second, and they make great ones. Films like Precious, where everybody comes down and sacrifices so much, and their paychecks go out the window and they don’t care. Those ones are magic. You see so much in this business, you never know what’s going to hit, but we did, and why change the sausage now? So here comes three.”

Even the third film was turbulent, as Flanery in 2017 tweeted that he and Reedus were no longer involved in Boondock III because of disagreements. But Flanery was in many ways the driving force in getting done the current draft, Duffy said, and whatever differences they had have been patched. In Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, the brothers end the film behind bars for their vigilante crimes. The third film picks up from there.

“Where we’re going is, the brothers are older,” Duffy said. “They are coming out into a brand new world that is not like the one they left. They are at odds. One wants to continue, the other doesn’t. There’s a new enemy out there, not like the traditional ones they’ve faced. That’s the thing that is timely about this one. I asked the fan based once, who would you most like to see Connor and Murphy kill? There were like 4500 answers, and some were Biblical; people just don’t give you one word answers. The number one answer was, politicians. I wrote a scene right now where one of them says, are you f*cking kidding? You can’t kill a politician and the other saying, are you kidding me? They’re the ones doing it. It turns out one guy is doing it much worse than everyone else. Without getting too deep into the story, what it is is, two boys coming out of prison after staying there much longer than expected, to a brand new world. They’re at odds on whether to push forward. But the type of people we face today in our society, is unlike any we’ve faced before. And that brings them together and they say, we cannot turn our backs on this.”

“Since I hooked up with Red and Yvette, they’ve proven to be some of the best in the business,” he said. “Boondock has always had a hard independent road. You’d try to get the best people in the area you’re shooting in, and there are things you just can’t believe that happen on an independent film set where you have to make a decision, get that footage and move on and not cry about it. Rob Peter to pay Paul, move, move, move 100 mph and you’re lucky if you get a salient story at the end of it. One of the things I’ve never had is the comfort of enough days, and the comfort of working with top people. I’ve got stunt work, gun work here, that deserve the attention and care paid by that franchise. One of the things that is really cool for me now is jumping in the pool with these guys who’ll say, you know what? Here’s what we can do.”

New Doctor Who star Ncuti Gatwa on keeping the secret since February



Incoming Doctor Who star Ncuti Gatwa, who was announced today by the BBC as the person to be replacing Jodie Whittaker in the TARDIS, has spoken about being able to “finally breathe” now the news is out as he has been keeping his new role secret since February.

Speaking on the red carpet at the BAFTA TV Awards in London, where he is nominated for Best Male Performance in a Comedy for his portrayal of Eric Effiong in Netflix smash hit Sex Education (pictured above), Gatwa told PA “I feel really happy that I can now talk about it, because I got cast in February.

“I’ve been keeping it a secret since then, so it’s nice to finally breathe.”

The 29 year old, who was born in Rwanda and brought up in Scotland, added: “But also really nervous. It’s an incredibly iconic role, and an incredibly iconic show – and I just hope I do it justice. I’m following some very, very big footsteps – so I’m just hoping that I fill them up.”

Gatwa will take over from Jodie Whittaker after her final episode is aired sometime in the autumn to coincide with the centenary celebrations of the BBC. It will also be the final episode that Chris Chibnall is showrunner of the programme before Russell T Davies makes his sensational return to the show almost two decades after rebooting Doctor Who.

Davies was also on the BAFTA red carpet and said Gatwa was “Stunning” and “blew everyone away” in his audition.

He added: “I think when you cast the Doctor, you cast for the potential. I can see him for years exploring the part and taking it somewhere new.”

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren to star in Yellowstone origin series 1932


A Mosquito Coast reunion between Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren is buzzing over at Paramount+, as both stars have joined the upcoming Yellowstone prequel series 1932.

The streaming service announced Tuesday that the Hollywood legends will lead Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan's new series, which is set to premiere digitally in December.

Following the success of the first Yellowstone origin series 1883, which became the most-watched Paramount+ original series, 1932 will "introduce a new generation of the Dutton family and explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition, and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home," according to an official synopsis.

Kevin Costner and Kelly Reilly originated the Yellowstone franchise, with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill taking lead roles in the 1883 origin odyssey about the Dutton family seeking a new life through the Great Plains on the way to Montana.

On the Paramount Network, Yellowstone launched a record-breaking season 4 run that drew an average of 11 million total viewers. The series was recently renewed for a fifth season (November 2022).

In addition to their upcoming roles in 1932, Ford and Mirren previously starred together in the 1986 film The Mosquito Coast, based on Paul Theroux's novel about a man who moves his family to a central American jungle to begin a new utopian life. The book was later adapted into a streaming series by Apple TV+ starring Justin Theroux and Melissa George.

1932 is set to premiere on Paramount+ in December.

Christopher Eccleston joins True Detective season 4



Christopher Eccleston, who played the Ninth Doctor for a single season when Doctor Who was rebooted on television in 2005 by Russell T Davies, is amongst a number of big names joining the already star-studded fourth season of HBO’s True Detective.

Eccleston, who has in more recent times worked as part of the MCU, in HBO show The Leftovers and BBC show The A Word amongst many others, will join Fiona Shaw of Killing Eve and Harry Potter fame alongside Finn Bennett (Domina, The Nevers) and Anna Lambe (Three Pines, Trickster), reports Variety.

The fourth season of the anthology series will see Jodie Foster and Kali Reis take over in the lead roles for the show.

Officially titles True Detective: Night Country, the description for the new season says: “When the long winter night falls in Ennis, Alaska, the six men that operate the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanish without a trace. To solve the case, Detectives Liz Danvers (Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Reis) will have to confront the darkness they carry in themselves, and dig into the haunted truths that lie buried under the eternal ice.”

It is understood Christopher Eccleston will play Ted Corsaro, “the regional Chief of Police and a political animal with a long history tying him to Liz Danvers.”

Fiona Shaw is set to play Rose Aguineau, “a survivalist with a past full of secrets.”

The show is currently in pre-production, so there could be a bit of a wait until we see Eccleston and the other exciting cast additions on screen in the show on HBO.

The first season of True Detective premiered on HBO in 2014 and starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. It has since had two more seasons with a series of big-name cast members including Colin Farrel, Rachel McAdams,  Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, Stephen Dorff and many more.
