I confess… I bought Stephen King’s epic novel for Under The Dome shortly after it came out and I haven’t had the courage to tackle it quite yet. I mean, there it is on my book shelf, staring back at me, just daring me to devote all my time and energy into tackling all 1088 pages… and I just haven’t done it. It’s hard enough finding the time for all the television I want to catch up on! A-ha! And now CBS has adapted and is premiering the TV series version based upon King’s book on June 24th. Below you’ll fin a pretty cool 2 and a half minute preview of what we can expect. Oh and did I mention the mighty Jeff Fahey is one of the leads of this sucker? Awe yeah…

Proving that the retro-‘60s fad still has some legs, assassinating John F. Kennedy is suddenly all the rage again, as more and more of today’s filmmakers get hip to the far-out sound of a nation’s innocence dying. As with so many horrible moments in history, Tom Hanks was right there with Parkland, followed soon after by J.J. Abrams saying he might be interested in taking Stephen King’s 11/22/63 from Jonathan Demme, and then came announcement of David Mamet’s Blackbird, a Cate Blanchett-starring thriller about a modern-day woman who begins to suspect her »
Check out this extended preview for CBS' new summer drama "Under the Dome," based on the novel by Stephen King. In this sneak peek, more is shown of the townspeople reacting to the dome, which highlights a couple changes from the book that they've previously been hinting at.
First off, it appears as though the dome is soundproof -- or at least, people on the outside can't hear the people trapped inside. That's definitely a change and provides an interesting wrinkle in communicating with the outside world.
Secondly, Linda Everett is on the inside of the dome, but her husband Rusty is outside. In the book, they're both under the dome. He's also gone from being a physician's assistant to a fireman. We wonder who will be the go-to doctor under the dome?
"Under the Dome" premieres Monday, June 24 on CBS. »
The Dark Tower is a series of novels from celebrated author Stephen King that mixes a number of genres (western, fantasy, sci-fi, horror) into one incredibly satisfying read. For nearly three years, Howard and Grazer have been approaching one studio after the next, looking to find a backer for their plans of adapting King's fantasy saga into a series of films with a television show that continues the story between movies. According to Deadline, Howard and Grazer are currently at the Cannes Film Festival looking to secure financial backing for a number of projects currently on their film slate and The Dark Tower happens to be one of those films. Reportedly, Grazer and Howard are in talks with a 'Silicone Valley investor" who is keen on putting up the money to see the duo's original vision come to life. Currently, that plan includes Russell Crowe (Man of Steel) »
The film is described as a dark fairytale and follows a downed pilot's journey across a war-torn land. During his travels he runs into a talking circus bear, falls head over heels for a cabaret singer and challenges the power of a tyrant.
Production is scheduled to begin in February 2014 in Germany and Serbia. »

"Our Zombieland series will not be moving forward on Amazon. Sad for everyone involved. I'll never understand the vehement hate the pilot received from die-hard Zombieland fans. You guys successfully hated it out of existence. Anyway, we did our best, and we're very proud of our team." [Source: Twitter]

Not only are Ron Howard and Brian Grazer closer to getting Stephen King's The Dark Tower made, but they may be able to produce their massive television and theatrical project as originally envisioned. It was recently announced that Media Rights Capital, the studio behind Riddick, Ted, and Elysium, had agreed to produce a single movie based on the first novel in The Dark Tower. The Gunslinger would likely star Russell Crowe as Roland Deschain and any future films would be considered based on »

Which American actress is richer than Oprah? According to a new list, "Seinfeld" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is worth a whopping $3 billion, beating Oprah by $300 million and becoming the fourth richest celebrity (singers, rappers, actors, models). Louis-Dreyfus didn't earn all that money from her work on "Seinfeld." In fact, most of it comes from her family. But that's not to say that "Seinfeld" didn't make her richer. Both Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David made the list, each being worth $800 million. What's interesting is that Keanu Reeves is worth $350 million, which is more than Will Smith ($200 million) and Bruce Springsteen ($200 million). But that's nothing comparing to the person who took first place, George Lucas, who's worth $7.3 billion, mostly thanks to the sale of "Star Wars" to Disney. Check out the top 50 list below: 1. George Lucas: $7.3 Billion 2. Dina Merrill: $5 Billion 3. Steven Spielberg: $3 Billion 4. Julia Louis-Dreyfus: $3 Billion 5. Oprah Winfrey: »

CBS has released a new TV spot for the Stephen King and Steven Spielberg-produced series Under The Dome. The spot includes even more new footage from the series that give us more insight to the story.
Brian K. Vaughan of Lost is developing the show, and the pilot episode was directed by Niels Arden Ople (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). I really enjoyed the book that the show is based off of, and I think it looks like they've turned it into a great series worth checking out.
The sci-fi thriller is set to premiere on Monday, June 24th at 10 pm.

Brian Grazier, Ron Howard, and Akiva Goldsman have been hard at work trying to get a big screen adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower series into production for years. They had two failed attempts with Universal Pictures and Warner Bros. in which the plan was to make three feature films with two TV series to tell a more detailed story and tie the films together.
The last thing we heard was that Media Rights Capital stepped into to finance one film, and then see how it does before they commit to the rest. That version has Russell Crowe set to star in the film as Roland Deschain. That plan is still in play, but it looks like another offer is now on the table.
Grazer recently revealed to Deadline that he has "just been approached by a Silicon Valley investor willing to finance Dark Tower as originally constructed. »

It’s been a long road for Ron Howard’s planned adaptation of The Dark Tower series and it doesn’t look like the first movie will go into production any time soon. With that being said, the project is far from dead and we have a new status update from Howard’s producing partner, Brian Grazer.
To catch everyone up on the previous news, the original plan was plan is to produce three feature films and a limited TV series that would bridge the movies together between releases, covering Stephen King’s entire 8-book series of The Dark Tower. Previously, Javier Bardem had been set for the lead role of gunslinger Roland Deschain, but now Russell Crowe is circling the part.

Hold your jokes about "The Simpsons Movie" -- the makers of CBS's summer miniseries adaptation of Stephen King's novel "Under the Dome" are already aware of the similarities in plot between the two properties, and are planning to give the Simpsons a shout-out. Unlike the Springfield saga, the 13-episode series, which will start June 24 at 10pm, is very serious -- it'll tell a dramatic tale of Chester's Mill, Maine, which finds itself suddenly cut off from the rest of the world by an impenetrable transparent barrier. Danish "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" director Niels Arden Oplev helmed the first episode, with Neal Baer acting as showrunner. Mike Vogel ("Bates Motel"), Rachelle Lefevre ("Twilight") and Dean Norris ("Breaking Bad") are among the cast members. Check out the trailer, which easily looks better than CBS's promos for its new fall shows, below.

This is a creepy, suspenseful novel of the supernatural, where a man in a 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith kidnaps kids and takes them to a place he calls Christmasland.
Of all the holidays, Christmas remains my favorite, even if it’s lost all meaning. I love the decorations, I love the music (which is odd, because it’s so religious and I’m not very religious), I love the sweets and all the other food that goes with those 6 weeks that starts at Thanksgiving. Yeah, presents are great, but for me they pale next to the colorful lights, the sparkling tinsel, and the smell of pumpkin pie and gingerbread cookies (love the odor, but not a huge fan of »

Ron Howard and Brian Grazer's Imagine Entertainment is looking to tackle two adaptations based on the works of Stephen King and Anne Rice. If you're a regular Shock reader, you know Imagine has been intending to do The Dark Tower for a long time, however, it has been rejected by two studios due to costs.
Initially, the game plan was to create a film and concurrent television series. Then that ambitious endeavor was scaled back to a single film with Russell Crowe attached to star. Deadline reports, though, that Grazer "has just been approached by a Silicon Valley investor willing to finance Dark Tower as originally constructed, now it’s a matter of deciding what path to take."
