Rainmark Films, the indie led by Game Of Thrones producer Frank Doelger and former BBC Films executive Tracey Scoffield, has lifted the lid on its multimillion-pound ITV Encore drama The Frankenstein Chronicles.
The London-based production company came close to making the series for Channel 4, but the broadcaster backed out of the project and it became ITV Encore’s first original commission last year.
“This project was in development with C4 for two years but they cancelled it. Fortunately for us, ITV was just about to launch Encore,” said Rainmark managing director Scoffield.
“We sent it to them - not knowing whether it would fit - and they felt like it would sit well.”
The Frankenstein Chronicles is currently in production in Northern Ireland, where it has received funding from Northern Ireland Screen, and Endemol Shine International will be selling the six-part series at MipTV in Cannes next month.

Principal photography recently wrapped on Ridley Scott's The Martian, with the director currently in post-production, working towards a November 25 release. Aside from the script page that was literally sent into outer space back in December, we haven't heard or seen anything about this sci-fi thriller. The story centers on an American astronaut named Mark Watney (Matt Damon) who is stranded on Mars, left behind by his crew after they thought he died in a dust storm. Yesterday, author Andy Weir, who wrote the book of the same name that this adaptation is based on, sent out a photo on his Facebook page, which gives us our first look at Matt Damon on the set.
As it turns out, it seems we have a Super Bowl bet between Matt Damon and his assistant Colin to thank for this photo. Boston native Matt Damon made a bet with Colin, a die-hard Seattle Seahawks fan, »
The photo, featuring the film's lead Matt Damon in costume in the desert, was uploaded to Facebook earlier today (March 20).
The image - taken shortly after the Superbowl last month - was shared by author Andy Weir, the writer behind the original novel of the same name.
In the movie, Damon plays Mark Watney - an astronaut who has to fight for survival after his mission is aborted and he is left stranded on Mars.
Filming recently finished on the new sci-fi feature "The Martian" from Ridley Scott, but until now there's been literally no publicity material from the film - be it on-set photos, official stills or trailers. Today though, a new photo has gone up which gives us our first look at Matt Damon on the set via a posting on author Andy Weir's Facebook page.
The shot shows Matt Damon in costume, complete with a name patch for his character Mark Watney, alongside Seattle Seahawks fan Colin. Colin made a bet with Boston native Matt Damon regarding the Super Bowl, a bet the former lost and so now he has to wear a Patriots jersey for a year.

Ridley Scott’s unstoppable streak of cranking out a movie a year continues with his upcoming sci-fi adventure The Martian. By the sounds of things, certain parts of production are wrapped (Jessica Chastain finished shooting her parts weeks ago) and others are still in full swing on what appears to be a full-scale replica of Mars. Just kidding.
The Martian is based on the novel by Andy Weir, who took a snap of the movie’s leading man during a recent set visit. In the flick, Matt Damon stars as Mark Watney, an astronaut stranded on Mars after his crew thinks him dead following a harsh sandstorm. They depart, leaving Watney alone on the red planet with only his frantically-whirring mind to keep him company and to save his life.
In this first pic (posted to Weir’s Facebook via Collider), Damon appears (in his Watney garb!) alongside his assistant Colin. »

I want to be excited about Ridley Scott's The Martian, based on the novel by Andy Weir, but Scott's track record as of late has left me continually disappointed based on my expectations and that's a tough thing to get over. There have been a few bright spots here and there, things to enjoy about several of his recent movies, but it hasn't all come together for one great product in a very long time. Perhaps that will change with this next film. I hope it does. That said, just below is a first look behind-the-scenes at The Martian as Weir posted the following image to his Facebook page, featuring star Matt Damon in the lead role as Mark Watney, pictured here with his assistant and a peek at the Mars rover used in the film in the background. amz asin="0553418025" size="small"The film centers on an astronaut »

In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens misinterpret video-feeds »
- Luke Owen
Does anyone else get the sense that Hollywood still doesn’t quite “get” video games in 2015? If you look at the movies it’s all still feeding quarters into a machine, getting a high score, winning a new life, joystick flailing, button mashing, and old 32-bit side-scrollers with wacky sound effects. Yeah, there’s Wreck-It Ralph and a few other good examples, but then you look at something like Pixels, and the movies still have a lot of catching up to do to where games are today.
Pixels, directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter, Home Alone) stars Adam Sandler as an ’80s video game champion tasked by the President (Kevin James) to fight off invading aliens taking the form of classic ’80s games like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. And though I wouldn’t put it past Hollywood to make a dark, gritty reimagining of Space Invaders or Missile Control as »

Game on! After a brief 10 second teaser yesterday, Sony Pictures has released the first full trailer for Pixels, the new comedy starring Adam Sandler (Grown Ups 2), which sees him defending the world from an alien invasion force of 1980’s arcade heroes and villains. Who knew Pac-Man could be so violent?
Check out the full trailer below…
In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with »
Adam Sandler, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage star in the film in which enormous pixelated characters from old-school video games try to destroy the earth due to aliens misinterpreting video feeds of classic arcade games.

Any mention of Adam Sandler in a movie and I’m immediately cautious. Tell me he co-stars with Kevin James and I’m out. So it says a lot about the first trailer for Sony’s Pixels that I am genuinely interested and a little excited. The film sees aliens use classic video game characters in order to invade our planet, after believing a time capsule sent into space by Nasa in 1982 was actually an act of war. If it sounds silly, that’s because it is, and it embraces that fact.
Sandler and James, along with Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad, and Peter Dinklage, play our last hope against the invading aliens. The film looks like a mixture between Wreck-it Ralph and Ghostbusters, and certainly seems to get the action/comedy balance right. Chris Columbus, of Home Alone and Harry Potter And The Philosopher’S Stone fame, directs, and the »

What would you do if aliens interpreted examples of 1980s video games found in a space probe as a declaration of war? And sent giant versions of icons such as Pac-Man and Donkey Kong to attack us? Clearly, you’d hire... Adam Sandler to defend the human race. Or at least, that’s what happens in action-comedy Pixels. Spawned from Patrick Jean’s inventive short, Pixels has is a big, brash Roland Emmerich-style alien invasion thriller welded to a high-concept Sandler comedy. The story finds Us President Will Cooper (Kevin James) tracking down old friend and ‘80s video-game champ Sam Brenner (Sandler) so he can put together a team of old-school arcade masters (including Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage) to defeat the techno-menace. So, basically it’s Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell from The King Of Kong saving the world?With director Chris Columbus aboard to marshal the spectacle »
Beloved 1980s video game characters are turned against humanity in the first full trailer for Sony Pictures' Pixels, following the trailer preview released yesterday. Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage, Kevin James and Josh Gad lead an impressive ensemble cast in this action-comedy, loosely based on the innovative 2010 short film of the same name by French filmmaker Patrick Jean. While that short simply showed the world being taken over by 1980s-style video game pixels, this adaptation takes that premise to a whole new level.
In Pixels, intergalactic aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them and attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, '80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage and Josh »

The Expendables 3 might not have set the box office alight, but you can't keep a good action hero down.
Sylvester Stallone is reportedly planning to bring his Oap ass-kicker franchise to the small-screen, with an Expendables event series in the works at Fox.
Much like how the films united action heroes of '80s and '90s cinema - Stallone, Schwarzenegger et al - so this new show is looking to bring together iconic TV tough guys from yesteryear.
Casting is yet to be confirmed, but in the meantime, here's Digital Spy's dream team for the TV Expendables.
He might not be eager to reprise Jack Bauer any time soon (dammit!) but Kiefer has to be on this list. His commanding presence makes him a natural fit for team leader - the TV equivalent of Stallone's Barney Ross.

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »
