Top 100 Most Anticipated American Indie Films of 2018: #82. Matthew Ross’ Siberia


Matthew Ross didn’t waste much time putting his sophomore film in place, after debuting 2016’s Frank & Lola at Sundance (read review) he tapped Keanu Reeves for Siberia, a follow up that appears to once again make different genres into ideal bed partners. Deemed a romantic thriller, production began in April on location in St Petersburg, Russia and Winnipeg, Canada.

Based on a story Stephen Hamel and a screenplay by Scott B. Smith, starring Reeves, Molly Ringwald, Aleks Paunovic, Pasha D. Lychnikoff and Ana Ularu, this follows Lucas (Reeves), an American diamond merchant, who travels to Russia to sell rare blue diamonds of questionable origin. As the deal begins to collapse, he falls into an obsessive relationship with Katya (Ularu), a Russian cafe owner, in a small Siberian town. Ross reteams with cinematographer Eric Koretz and composers Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans.

John Wick: The Continental TV Show May Include Ian McShane

John Wick TV show spinoff The Continental may be bringing back a familiar face in Ian McShane. The original John Wick seemingly came out of nowhere back in 2014, and on the surface it looked like a silly action flick where Keanu Reeves avenges his murdered dog. The movie turned out to be one of the best action films of that year, with Reeves perfectly cast as the legendary hitman. The film also had a great supporting cast, and the amount of world-building surrounding the film’s criminal underworld added an intriguing layer to the story.

‘John Wick’ TV Series Confirmed

John Wick is one of those films that surprised audiences with just how good it was. Before the release, actor Keanu Reeves’ career had been on somewhat of a downward trajectory after a myriad of his films bombed at the box office. Then John Wick saved it, bringing Keanu back into the spotlight, and back into our hearts along with it. It wasn’t just Keanu that made the film however, it was the fictional world dreamt-up by writer Derek Kolstad; a world populated by secret assassins who trade in gold coins and have their own dedicated chain of hotels – The Continental. As the films have been so popular, and with the forthcoming John Wick: Chapter Three being the final film, Lionsgate and Starz are now working together to bring a television show based on the hotel to small screens worldwide.

The series will be set within the John Wick

John Wick spin-off TV series The Continental picked up by Starz

Fans of the John Wick franchise have more to look forward to than John Wick: Chapter 3 and the potential female-led spin-off Ballerina.

Constantine Animated Series Will Be Darker Than The Live-Action Show

Despite following a cult favourite character, CBSConstantine – starring Matt Ryan as DC’s occult detective John Constantine – didn’t live past its initial 13 episode debut season. That wasn’t the end of this version of the antihero, though, as Ryan later reprised the role for an episode of Arrow and, more recently, Legends of Tomorrow. This year, he’ll also be leading his own animated webseries.

But how will this new show compare to the short-lived live-action version? Will it strip away the darker edges of the demonic world Constantine inhabits to make it more family-friendly? Not at all. In fact, it’s going to do the opposite and push the boundaries even more than the CBS series did.

While speaking with Collider, CW Seed’s VP Peter Girardi claimed that the upcoming animation will be even darker than Matt Ryan’s live-action appearances. The topic came up as
