The “Fatal Attraction” TV series is not going forward at Fox, TheWrap has learned. The adaptation of the 1987 Michael Douglas-Glenn Close movie was in the works way back in Summer 2015, but casting issues stalled it out. The cast-contingent project was passed on by Megan Fox, we’re told by an individual with knowledge of the proposed production. By the time Jenna Dewan hopped aboard, the show was pretty much a goner.

The Fatal Attraction limited series is not moving forward — at least, not at Fox.
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the reboot of the iconic feature film had trouble casting — Megan Fox and Jenna Dewan Tatum both are said to have passed — and there were issues with the title.
First put in development in July 2015, the show had a script penned by Mad Men alums Maria and Andre Jacquemetton, but insiders say it did not come out well. Paramount Television, whose film arm distributed the 1987 film starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close, produced. The drama may be shopped elsewhere, though if »

Here’s some good news for bunnies everywhere: Fox is not moving forward with a small-screen adaptation of Fatal Attraction, TVLine has learned.
Reports of the 1987 thriller — about a Manhattan attorney (played by Michael Douglas) and his lunatic mistress (Glenn Close) — being rebooted as a limited-event TV series first surfaced in July 2015. Mad Men‘s Maria and Andre Jacquemetton were expected to write and executive-produce.
Rumor has it casting issues played into the project’s demise, as producers had a tough time finding an A-list actress interested in filling Close’s sizable shoes. »

Marvel's Moon Knight has never really been their most popular property, but he's certainly stood the test of time on racks since the mid-1970s.
If you're unfamiliar with the character, he's been described in the past as "Batman with multiple personality disorder" and while that's taking a very broad sweep at the background of erstwhile mercenary slash millionaire entrepreneur slash cab driver Marc Spector, it's not a world away from the truth.
Born the son of a rabbi, Spector gets his powers after being left for dead on a mercenary mission near an archaeological dig in Egypt. Visited in a near-death vision »

As is now always the case, Disney layered in a few special Easter eggs and callbacks to its earlier movies in its latest delightful movie, Moana. Furthermore, it’s now released a collection of images just in case you missed what they were first time around.
Firstly, then, if you look carefully at the following image, one of the Kakamora has the look of Baymax, familiar of course to fans of Big Hero 6…
Then, if you look closely at this tapa cloth from the movie, you’ll see the character of Flounder. Flounder appeared in The Little Mermaid, that was also helmed by Moana »

Behind the scenes images from the making of Gremlins 2: The New Batch...
It still remains an injustice that 1990’s hugely entertaining sequel, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, didn’t do greater business, ultimately struggling at the box office whne it was scheduled against Disney's Dick Tracy movie. Director Joe Dante has admitted that he made the film in part wanting to stop there being any chance of Gremlins 3, and 27 years later, that ambition still holds. But also, he put together a gleefully entertaining, very funny sequel, one that’s happy to poke enormous fun at what it’s doing.
The gremlins of the two Gremlins films were painstakingly realised, without the aid of computers to take on the heavy lifting. And in this relatively »

It seems that Slender Man is set for a bit of a pop-culture surge. As HBO’s upcoming documentary Beware The Slender Man prepares for its Us premiere in a few weeks on January 23, a crucial development has occurred on the front of the gestating (and kind of inevitable) horror film adaptation of the meme phenomenon.
According to Deadline, studio Screen Gems has appointed Sylvain White to direct the upcoming Slender Man feature film. For White, it’s a critical and poetic selection, since he made his directorial breakthrough for Screen Gems with the 2007 bellwether Hip-Hop dance drama hit Stomp the Yard. With Slender Man, White will »

An ex-designer reveals that nobody at Nintendo wanted to make a two screen system except for the man who got the final word.
The Nintendo DS is one of the best-selling systems of the past few decades, with its two-screen set-up recalling the big N's glory days with the Game And Watch series. But in an interview with Retro Gamer Magazine, former Nintendo General Manager of Research and Engineering Satoru Okada revealed that the Nintendo DS' second screen was a last-minute idea that almost everyone at the company disagreed with.
According to Okada, Nintendo had planned to follow up the Game Boy Advance with a handheld system known only at that time as "Iris." The name was a play on the system's status as the »
Megyn Kelly has decided to move to NBC News from Fox News Channel, according to a spokesperson for NBC News, setting in motion a seismic shift in the TV-news business that will leave a major gap in the primetime schedule of one of 21st Century Fox’s most important operations while sending NBCUniversal scurrying to accommodate a new set of programs built around the outsize talent.
Representatives for the popular anchor and for Fox News Channel could not be reached for immediate comment.
Under a new deal, which was announced Tuesday, Kelly will join NBC News later in 2017, and will anchor what NBC billed as “a new one hour daytime program that she will develop closely with NBC News colleagues.” The show is expected to air Monday through Friday at a time to be announced in coming months. NBC already airs four hours of “Today” each weekday and it remained unclear as to whether the network intended »
