Back in May Kevin Smith announced that he’s partnering up with MGM for a small screen adaptation of the 1984 cult sci-fi The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, and now Deadline is reporting that Amazon is close to reaching a deal for the series.
Smith, a long time fan of the original movie, has stated that he hoped to be able to lure original cast members such as Peter Wller, John Lithgow, Christopher Lloyd and Jeff Goldblum back for the TV series, and views the first season as an adaptation of the film, with potential subsequent season then expanding the story further.
Since directing an episode of The Flash last year, Smith has started turning his attention more towards TV; he’ll be directing another episode of the DC series for its third season, and has also reworked his planned Mallrats sequel into a 10-episode series.

Just a few months ago, the 1984 movie The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension was simply a cult classic with a small but devoted following. Shortly after Kevin Smith directed an episode of The Flash, he was approacheed to turn this movie into a TV series, and now it seems that show has found a home. A new report reveals that the director and MGM are finalizing a deal to bring the Buckaroo Banzai show to Amazon Studios.
Deadline reports that Amazon and MGM are "close to locking in a deal" that would bring the show to the streaming service. The report claims that Amazon is eyeing to air the series at some point next year, but an exact episode count wasn't given. The news comes just hours after Amazon Studios announced their new comedy shows for their fall pilot season, including a reboot of The Tick.
Amazon and MGM are closing a deal for the streaming service to be the home of filmmaker Kevin Smith's proposed TV series adaptation of cult 1984 feature "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension" says TV Line.
Peter Weller starred as a physicist/pilot/rock musician who, with his band of men called the Hong Kong Cavaliers, battled alien invaders from the eighth dimension.
Smith was approached by MGM about rebooting the property shortly after his great success helming an episode of "The Flash" this spring. »

"This is nowhere. It isn't supposed to happen here..." A trailer has debuted online for an indie thriller called I Am Not A Serial Killer, starring young actor Max Records, who starred in Where the Wild Things Are a few years ago. Records, now a teenager, plays a kid in a small snowy town with his own homicidal tendencies, but discovers that an actual serial killer is in town and must track him down to stop him from killing more people. Christopher Lloyd plays the serial killer (not a spoiler but still), and he looks rather creepy. The cast includes Laura Fraser, Karl Geary, Bruce Bohne and Tim Russell. This trailer totally sold me. It has some fantastic cinematography, and the film looks like it's from a completely different time. Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Billy O'Brien's I Am Not A Serial Killer, found on Vimeo (via Tfs »

Isolation director Billy O'Brien took a bow at SXSW this year with his latest effort, I Am Not A Serial Killer. An adaptation of the novel by Dan Wells with a premise that basically starts as Dexter for young adults before spinning into much stranger territory, the film stars Where The Wild Things Are child actor Max Records as a small town teen who believes he is a sociopath likely to blossom into a serial killer who is drawn inexorably into the wake of an actual serial killer currently preying on his local community. Christopher Lloyd also stars and after drawing positive press at its festival debut - here's our own Peter Martin's take - and with an August limited release coming soon to the...

Max Records must’ve been quite bummed when he learned Wild Things aren’t real, because he’s now become obsessed with real monsters in the SXSW thriller I Am Not A Serial Killer. Alongside a particularly creepy Christopher Lloyd, Records leads the film that will stop by Fantasia Festival, and a new trailer has now arrived.
The film follows a boy (Records) who, despite not wanting to become one himself, has a strong interest towards serial killers. When one (Llyod) swoops into his town, the boy must embrace his dark fascination in order to save the ones he loves, lest he join the man. With the trailer set to the slow, rhythmic motions of an elliptical machine, some truly haunting images, and praise for the film, I Am Not a Serial Killer could be an indie hit, pending U.S. distribution.

It’s been a hot minute since we last saw Max Records. The “Where The Wild Things Are” star has kept a low profile since 2011’s unfortunately bland “The Sitter,” and it seemed like the child star might’ve given up on the whole acting thing. But that’s not the case. Rather, like several growing child stars before him, […]

When the 2016 Primetime Emmy ballots went online Monday, Jason Sudeikis was included among the list of guest actors in a comedy series for his critically acclaimed turn on Fox’s “The Last Man On Earth.”
There’s just one problem: Under Emmy rules, Sudeikis isn’t a guest star.
Because he appeared in 11 of the second season’s 18 episodes as Mike Miller, astronaut brother of the titular character Phil Miller (played by Will Forte), he far exceeds the current threshold for guest consideration.
Per Academy rules: “It is the decision of the entrant whether to enter as a lead, supporting or guest performer. However, only performers appearing in less than 50% of the eligible episodes are able to submit in the Guest Performer categories.”
Although Sudeikis would be properly categorized in the supporting actor race, it’s too late to make the switch now that voting has commenced, and he will therefore be disqualified from consideration. (Again, per Academy rules: “If an entry is made in the wrong category and the error is not discovered until it goes to the voters on the nomination ballot, it will be disqualified.”)
Since the category’s inception in 1986, the rules and regulations defining guest performers have varied wildly throughout the years. In 1992, a movement to recognize guest performers on the primetime telecast resulted in guests competing against full-time leads (Christopher Lloyd won outstanding actor in a drama series for a single episode of “Road to Avonlea” and the experiment ended). And in recent years, winners in the guest categories have included performers booked for season long arcs (like John Lithgow’s 2010 win for season four of “Dexter”).
The current rule was instituted in 2015, the year after Uzo Aduba won outstanding guest actress in a comedy for the first season of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” despite appearing in 11 out of 13 episodes and essentially functioning as a series regular. Aduba went on to win outstanding supporting actress in a drama at last year’s Emmys.
There is still some confusion about the shift in what constitutes a guest performance even among industry insiders. Pundits considered Diana Rigg a shoo-in for a fourth consecutive guest actress nomination as Lady Olenna Tyrell on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” this year, but the actress will appear in five of the season’s 10 episodes, pushing her into the supporting field. Only a handful of actors from the massive “Thrones” ensemble are submitted by HBO each year (the rest can submit on their own). Rigg is not on this year’s ballot.
Under the current rules, Rigg would also not have been eligible as a guest star in the show’s third season, when she received her first nomination.
Meanwhile, “Breaking Bad” veteran Mark Margolis is entered in the supporting race for reprising his Emmy-nominated guest role as the villainous Hector Salamanca on “Better Call Saul.” The actor appeared in exactly half of “Saul’s” second season (five out of 10 episodes), with minimal screen time in several of those. It’s difficult to argue he’s a supporting player to the same degree as “Saul” co-stars Jonathan Banks or Michael McKean, but the rules are the rules.
Over at AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” series regulars Ross Marquand and Tovah Feldshuh have been entered in guest categories this year because they each appeared in six episodes of the 16-episode season. But guest star Merritt Wever vies in supporting actress because she appeared in nine.
What happened with Sudeikis was apparently a case of the studio, 20th Century Fox Television, evaluating the role under the Academy’s old guidelines, and judging it a guest turn. He was billed as a “special guest star” for every episode, and in three of the 11 episodes he appeared onscreen for less than a minute. But his role grew in importance as the season progressed, his character had a bottle episode essentially all to himself, and he was a crucial participant in the season-ending arc.
The TV Academy does not vet submissions for accuracy; they simply go by the information submitted on entry forms, which would have noted that Sudeikis appeared in less than 50% of the episodes. No performers were disqualified from the ballot last year.
