Deadwood Movie May Shoot This Year Says Ian McShane

10 June 2017 8:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This August will mark the 11th anniversary of a very sad date in TV history, the last episode of Deadwood, which was unceremoniously canceled after its Season 3 finale. Given the massive fan base for the show, many had been holding out hope that the show would come back in some way, and in January 2016, those fans' prayers were answered when the network gave the green light for a new Deadwood movie. We reported in April that series creator David Milch has delivered his script to HBO, but we haven't heard anything since then. Today we have word from Ian McShane, who said that the movie may in fact shoot before the end of the year.

Variety spoke with Ian McShane, who was promoting his new hit series American Gods on Starz, when the talk eventually shifted to Deadwood. The last update we had on the movie was last month, when »

The Good, The Bad & The Badass: Powers Boothe

5 June 2017 8:54 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Powers Boothe Powers Boothe never really got his due. A character actor par excellence, I’m sure that for awhile there it looked like he would become a full-fledged leading man. He made a big impression playing Jim Jones in “Guyana Tragedy”, for which he won an Emmy, and later starred in one of the first ever HBO series, “Philip Marlowe: Private Eye”.... Read More »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Sin City: The TV Show is coming to a screen near you! A reboot of Frank Miller’s comic book series which lives under the dark umbrella of Sin City, is getting a fresh new make-over which differs from the big screen adaptations, in the form of a TV series from TWC/Dimension with a little help from the Weinstein Company.

Staying close to the premise of the wonderfully animated comic series, The Walking Dead and The Omen showrunner, Glen Mazzara has been recruited to tackle writing the series which will be directed by Len Wiseman, a man who has produced series such as Lucifer and Sleepy Hollow and helmed Underworld.

Also on board is Stephen L’Heureux (Sin City: A Dame To Kill For) overseeing this and will act as the producer with Miller, Mazzara, Wiseman and Bob & Harvey Weinstein.

‘Archer’ Says Goodbye to ‘Dreamland’ and 4 More Things to Watch on Wednesday, May 24

24 May 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Welcome to PeekTV, your daily look at the best that television has to offer. In each installment, we make three picks for the best shows to watch and…toss in a little extra. 

Wednesday, May 24 What Happened Last Night?!

Why is this box puzzling this man? (Check out last night’s TV picks to find out.)

“Archer: Dreamland”

“Auflösung,” Fxx – 10:00 p.m.

Synopsis: In the season finale, Archer visits Dreamland and receives a big break that leads him to Woodhouse’s killer.

Why You Should Watch: The season-long descent into film noir has worked wonders for one of cable’s longest-running animated series. If nothing else, it’s been interesting to see how this wacky assemblage of erstwhile agents have adjusted to their new ’40s environs. As with all good things, Archer probably isn’t long for this particular world, but it’ll be interesting to see if this »

Read Director Walter Hill’s Heartfelt Tribute to Powers Boothe

17 May 2017 4:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Walter Hill directed Powers Boothe in just two films — “Extreme Prejudice” (1987) with Nick Nolte and “Southern Comfort” (1981) with Keith Carradine. However, the two were longtime friends, and Boothe’s death May 14 at the age of 68 hit Hill hard. He wrote this remembrance of the veteran actor for IndieWire. 

The news of his passing, especially so soon after that of Bill Paxton, came very hard. My friendship with Powers covered many years, yet we somehow managed to do only two films. I wish it had been 20.

We worked in deserts, swamps, and on sound stages; in all circumstances, I came to admire his good humor, his courtly manners, his bemused reserve… I used to gently tease him as the ‘Hamlet of the Prairies’, and even though it was difficult to imagine anyone more American (a Texan; proud of it), there was something grand about the performances, as well as the man, »

Powers Boothe obituary

16 May 2017 9:43 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Actor who revelled in playing charismatic villains and all-round bad guys

The actor Powers Boothe, who has died aged 68, was one of Hollywood’s greatest villains. His characters embraced their villainy with complete self-belief, relished their freedom from restraint, and disdained the boredom of creatures more tightly bound by morality. They were also entertaining and dangerously likable.

Boothe’s bad men often represented the darker side of the heroes to whom he played foil; his flamboyant Curly Bill Brocius is the antithesis of Kurt Russell’s tightly wrapped Wyatt Earp in Tombstone (1993) and, as if they were two sides of the same violent person, his white-suited drug lord even shares a woman with Nick Nolte as the vengeful Texas ranger who was his childhood friend, in Walter Hill’s over-the-top B movie Extreme Prejudice (1987).
