  1. Dark was a big hit, so its creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar are back with Netflix with another show. It's set in 1899, around a group of migrants from around Europe and maybe further sailing to America. Their ship encounters another migrant ship adrift and...something mysterious they're not going into details on happens. It'll be multilingual with the multinational cast speaking their native tongues. It's filmed on a virtual "Volume" set, familiar to those in The Mandalorian thread. Friese and Odar actually had this built themselves, at Babelsberg studios in Germany, and set up their own company to operate it, on the back of this and Netflix committing to shooting more stuff on it. It's currently Europe's largest version of the tech.
  2. Yeah, they're going there... There was never meant to be a sequel to the 1981 movie History of the World, Part I, but Mel Brooks and Hulu are taking it up now, as an 8-part series. Brooks will be writing and producing, along with Wanda Sykes, Ike Barinholtz, Nick Kroll, David Stassen and Kevin Salter. Coming in Spring.
  3. Netflix are to release this on 1 January. It's 8 episodes and the non-linear aspect is that it doesn't matter what order you watch them in and different people will be served different orders. Might be interesting to see how that works in reality. The idea came from when $70bn of bonds went missing during Hurricane Sandy. The creator thought "What if it was actually a heist using the storm for cover". Stars Giancarlo Esposito, Rufus Sewell, Paz Vega, Tati Gabrielle, Peter Mark Kendall, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney, Niousha Noor, Jordan Mendoza, Soojeong Son and Hemky Madera.
  4. https://www.thewrap.com/westworld-creators-jonathan-nolan-lisa-joy-the-peripheral-series-amazon/ Westworld's Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan are adapting the William Gibson book for Amazon.
  5. New 8-episode AMC show starring Bob Odenkirk coming in March. Odenkirk plays an English department chairman in an underfunded college in the Pennsylvania rust belt. And he's having a mid-life crisis. Also features Mireille Enos, Oscar Nunez, Tom Bower, Kyle Maclachlan and Chris Diamantopoulos. Adapted from the novel "Straight Man". https://deadline.com/2023/01/lucky-hank-amc-reveals-debut-date-for-next-bob-odenkirk-starrer-1235215608/
  6. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-34711492 Hopefully this will fare better than the movie adaptations.
  7. https://deadline.com/video/shadow-and-bone-trailer-when-netflix-april-2021/ I don't know what Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels are, but this is based on those. Apart from Ben Barnes, the named cast seem to be relative newcomers. A teaser that doesn't show much of anything.
  8. I know almost nothing about the whole Warhammer thing beyond some really basic stuff, but I've always been fascinated by the aesthetics of the figures and vehicles and stuff when I see them. Frank Spotnitz, with Games Workshop, is developing a big budget TV show. The show will be based on books of the same name based in the 40k universe. There's no network attached yet. But I'm guessing they would be aiming for something more than the basic networks for both content and budget reasons.
  9. https://deadline.com/2021/11/randall-park-blockbuster-video-store-comedy-series-netflix-from-superstore-duo-david-caspe-1234876166/ Netflix have ordered a workplace comedy set in the last Blockbuster Video store in America. Starring Randall Park and some Superstore people behind the scenes. Netflix were almost crushed by blockbuster back in the day, when Netflix were a movie rental company, and they even rebuffed an offer to sell Netflix to them. How things could have been different. Brought down by Kit-Kats in the end, innit.
  10. Another GoT prequel is close to getting a pilot. This one is set 300 years before the show, about House Targaryen. Based on the Fire and Blood books. https://deadline.com/2019/09/house-targaryen-prequel-game-of-thrones-series-ryan-condal-george-rr-martin-hbo-1202732221/
  11. http://variety.com/2016/tv/news/robert-downey-jr-nic-pizzolatto-hbo-tv-1201836724/ Robert Downey Jr. had been trying to get a Perry Mason movie going at WB for a few years, but now it looks like it'll happen as a series at HBO, with True Detective's Nic Pizzolatto involved.
  12. Sony TV are to bring The Destroyer book series to TV. Previously on screen as the Remo Williams movie in 1985. There's over 150 books for them to draw from. It's about a cop who was framed and sentenced to death. But that was a cover so the government could fake his death and train him as an assassin for their secret organisation, CURE. It's being adapted by Gordon Smith, who was an exec producer on Better Call Saul. https://deadline.com/2022/12/the-destroyer-series-adaptation-1235192845/
  13. A 5-part limited series about Watergate coming to HBO in March. Stars Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux as E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy, Watergate masterminds who ended up toppling the Presidency they were trying to protect. Other cast include Lena Headey (Dorothy Hunt), Judy Greer (Fran Liddy), Domhnall Gleeson (John Dean), Toby Huss (James McCord), Ike Barinholtz (Jeb Magruder), Kathleen Turner (Dita Beard), Kim Coates (Frank Sturgis), Yul Vazquez (Bernard “Macho” Barker), Alexis Valdés (Felipe De Diego), Nelson Ascencio (Virgilio “Villo” Gonzalez), Tony Plana (Eugenio “Muscolito” Martinez), Zoe Levin (Lisa Hunt), Liam James (Saint John Hunt), Kiernan Shipka (Kevan Hunt), Tre Ryder (David Hunt), David Krumholtz (William O. Bittman), F. Murray Abraham (Judge Sirica), Rich Sommer (Egil “Bud” Krogh), and John Carroll Lynch (John Mitchell). https://deadline.com/video/white-house-plumbers-trailer-woody-harrelson-amp-justin-theroux-hbos-watergate-limited-series/
  14. Amazon come along with another hero show, based on a Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson comic. The show is developed by Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen. Stars Karl Urban, Elizabeth Shue, Antony Starr and a bunch more.
  15. https://deadline.com/2021/02/wednesday-addams-live-action-series-tim-burton-netflix-al-gough-miles-millar-to-showrun-1234695553/ Tim Burton to direct an 8-part live-action Wednesday Addams show for Netflix. Al Gough and Miles Millar as showrunners.
  16. Mike Flanagan hasn't done a show about bombing down the Bayshore Route in Tokyo in cars that crashed through Halfords first. It's about a group of terminally ill young adults in a hospice who gather at midnight to tell scary stories. And make a pact that when the first dies, they communicate with others from beyond the grave. And when the first does die, strange things begin happening. Starts today. It's also made it into the Guinness Records for the most jump scares in a single episode. Flanagan actually hates jump scares, but decided to deliberately go over the top for those people who clamour for them and try to make them meaningless. https://deadline.com/2022/10/the-midnight-club-now-guiness-world-records-holder-1235137919/
  17. I'm feeling trepidation about how this could turn out. JMS is back with Warner Bros. TV to reboot the show for The CW.
  18. https://deadline.com/video/tokyo-vice-hbo-max-trailer/ Loosely based on American journalist Jake Adelstein's book about his first hand account of being on the beat with the Tokyo Metropolitan Police. Set in the late 90s. Adelstein is played by Ansel Elgort. Ken Watanabe is a detective in the organized crime division and mentor to Adelstein. Also features Rachel Keller, Ella Rumpf, Rinko Kikuchi, Hideaki Ito, Show Kasamatsu, Tomohisa Yamashita, Shun Sugata, Masato Hagiwara, Ayumi Tanida, and Kosuke Toyohara. 3 episodes on 7 April, then 2 each Thursday until 28 April, with 3 again.
  19. Due to more arguments in the big GoT thread about what should and shouldn't be in that thread and whether it was working or not I have decided to start this. Sorry for diluting the chat and making another GoT thread. Here is my post from the other thread which a few people seemed to agree with and forms the basis for this thread. I don't care if something is exactly the same as the book, completely different or whatever. If this isn't how you would like to discuss the show please open a "Game of Thrones-Books read up to current episode" thread. Please leave this thread totally book free. No book chat. None. So no book chat. None. Even to discuss differences. This is purely to discuss what is on screen. The only time spoilers should be used in here is between Sunday night when the new episode is first shown in the US and 8pm Monday evening. If you are waiting for the Sky transmission and click a spoiler in here you just have yourself to blame. After 8pm on Mondays spoiler tags should not be needed in this thread. The reason I am being so fussy about spoilers is the books are out there containing spoilers for the next few series and the spoilers are so significant as anything can happen. After series one it is clear anyone can die etc.
  20. https://deadline.com/2019/04/phil-lord-chris-miller-mega-deal-sony-pictures-tv-spider-man-universe-tv-series-1202603847/ Lord and Miller have done a deal with Sony Television to develop Spider-Man Universe TV shows (ie. the bits of the Marvel universe Sony have access to through the Spider-Man rights). Live action and animated. Other non-Marvel stuff too.
  21. A second animated anthology of shorts. This one is stories about Jedi of the prequel era. I guess we'll get more of that Fisto grin. It's coming in autumn.
  22. There were some doubts it would happen, but it now looks like it is. Though at the TCA press tour, they said it won't be until 2019. No story details yet, but Hawley is working on it. [edit] Trailer added
  23. https://deadline.com/2019/07/jeff-bridges-to-star-as-retired-cia-officer-in-fx-drama-the-old-man-from-black-sails-co-creators-jon-steinberg-robert-levine-1202653849/ Jeff Bridges will be a retired CIA officer in a new FX drama. It comes from Jon Steinberg and Robert Levine, co-creators of Black Sails. Bridges is Dan Chase, who left the CA decades ago and now lives off the grid. Then an assassin tries to take him out and, I dunno, he uses his particular set of skills or something. Hopefully it turns out well.
  24. http://www.indiewire.com/2017/06/john-wick-tv-show-keanu-reeves-prequel-the-continental-hotel-1201841666/ Lionsgate is making a TV show centred on The Continental from John Wick. People did say they would like to see more of The Continental's world, so it's happening. The movie's director and franchise mastermind, Chad Stahelski, is behind the show too. It'll be focused on other clients passing through the worldwide hotel network rather than Wick, but Stahelski reckons Wick will make an appearance, though that's not official.
