American Gods: Mr. Wednesday Dishes Out Some Wednesday Wisdom In New Pic

24 August 2016 6:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ready for your weekly helping of Wednesday Wisdom? Empire has lifted the lid on a new image for American Gods, placing Ian McShane (Deadwood, Game of Thrones) front and center as the glowering Mr. Wednesday.

An instrumental component of Shadow Moon’s (Ricky Whittle) clash with the new gods, Mr. Wednesday is a conman and grifter, and one of the many intriguing characters lining Starz’s roster. In bringing American Gods to the small-screen, the network has set Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) as showrunner and Neil Gaiman – the creative mastermind behind the original novel – and the former told Empire that this adaptation is shaping up to be “Clash Of The Titans meets The Grifters.”

That presents Fuller and Co. with plenty of rich story material to mine from, as Starz goes about engineering a “meticulous weave of characters and storylines” for premiere in 2017.

Interview: Laura Allen Talks Taking on a Terrifying Transformation in Clown

19 August 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A monstrous transformation threatens to literally tear a family apart in Clown. With Dimension Films and Anchor Bay Entertainment releasing the movie on Blu-ray and DVD on August 23rd, Daily Dead spoke with Clown co-star Laura Allen about what attracted her to the role of Meg, working with Peter Stormare, one of her favorite scenes that was cut from the movie, and more.

What made you say “yes” to taking on this movie with this crazy concept? 

Laura Allen: I was in New York City in the fall of 2012, I had a brand new baby in my hotel in SoHo, and I was given the script. I started reading Meg’s story in Clown, and was getting the fact that everything’s so primal. She’s pregnant and she’s terrified and she’s just interested in the survival of her family. There were steps that she made and »

Emily S. Whitten: American Gods In Your Home?

2 August 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

When I heard that Neil Gaiman’s bestselling novel American Gods was being made into a TV series, I was super-interested. I’ve been a fan of American Gods (and Neil’s body of work oh, generally speaking, for many years and even had the privilege of bringing Neil and the book to The National Press Club in D.C. during its limited Tenth Anniversary Tour. And although the novel is such an epic that I had a bit of trouble picturing how the adaptation would work, I’ve always wanted to see what it would be like on screen.

As the news started filtering in about who would be running the show, writing the show, and playing all the parts, I got more and more excited. And now that I’ve been to the Sdcc booth experience (which was appropriately otherworldly and included some cool swag!), attended the panel »

20 July 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

“As [co-writer Michael Green] would always remind me, this was another in a long line of dead girls I’ve written about,” states Bryan Fuller. “It was fun to take what Neil had created for Laura in the book and imagine her point of view from the scenario that she was in now. One of my favorite times collaboratively on this is when Michael and I were first talking about crafting and expanding Laura’s story, because it felt like we had been handed the baton of her character and could run.

20 July 2016 3:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Starz announced its episodic adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novel, American Gods, it seemed like an epic undertaking. The project is now underway with an astonishing cast, however, and the latest addition is comedian and actor, Dane Cook. He will apparently feature in each of the 10 episodes, making this a significant role for him within a high profile series.

It’s a fantasy story, with tinges of great mystery, and centres on a world in which the old, traditional gods are in conflict with their new, modern counterparts.

Fantasia 2016: Rupture is a Solid Sci-Fi Thriller [Review]

18 July 2016 6:10 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Indie writer-director Steven Shainberg has never been one to stick to a single genre, hopping from crime thriller (1998's Hit Me) to kinky dark comedy (2002's criminally under-appreciated Secretary) to biographical drama (2006's Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus). Now, ten years after his last feature, Shainberg tries his hand at science fiction/horror with Rupture, a solid abduction thriller starring Noomi Rapace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), Michael Chiklis (Fantastic Four), and Peter Stormare (Fantasia Festival favorite Bad Milo).

Rapace plays single mother Renee Morgan, whose teenaged son is prone to emotional and angry outbursts. As the audience watches them prepare for their day, we notice that, oddly, some of what we’re [Continued ...] »

First look at Technical Boy in American Gods, Dane Cook joins the cast

17 July 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Entertainment Weekly continues its huge Comic-Con preview with the release of the first official image of Bruce Langley as Technical Boy from Starz’s hotly-anticipated TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods.

“We needed to establish a frame of reference for the aesthetic of the Technical Boy, and [director] David Slade, I believe, was the first one to say ‘Commodore 64,’” states Bryan Fuller. “That will mean more to the audience once they understand more of the Technical Boy’s story — why the Commodore 64 and that era of technology is so informative for the look of him and the story and the general aesthetic when we first sample his world.”
